I noticed beyond meat has been a fairly popular investment considering the plant based/green trends. They have some pretty good partnerships. However, it seems that they have increasingly negative operating cash flow year over year. I see this as a way to look at the health of a business and its ability to generate $. So why are so many investors (institutional and retail) able to overlook that? Since it is getting owrse and worse, it seems to be signs of a sinking ship. The company seems to be losing more and more $ in operating cash flow each year and also borrowing more and more money.
Am I interpreting this wrong? I’d like to understand how people can justify that and still invest. Much respect to the investors, just trying to understand. Thanks.
