Could Beyond Meat Be a Millionaire Maker Stock?

Call it a conspiracy theory but it would be interesting to know the level at which current 
and former McDonald's Corp. executives are invested in Beyond Meat. 

Though he didn't last very long it's my understanding that Don Thompson was liked and trusted by his corporate cronies. It would have been easy for him to reach back into McDonald's and sell this group of wealthy executives a substantial number of BYND shares, either before the BYND IPO or after. 

It's easy pickings. McDonald's has the authority to approve the vendor for fake meat. McDonald's executives have the power to decide on the scope of the menu and the 
influence to force McDonald's Owner/Operators to spend their advertising money on 
fake meat. 

The McDonald's advertising of fake meat may not sell a lot of sandwiches but it will pump the price of BYND shares. McDonald's execs cash out at the peak and Owner/Operators
and DCs are left with coolers full of Beyond Meat inventory.

Sweet, plus it's modern and progressive.

McDonald’s CEO is Going to Change the World

"McDonald’s can change the world in a way that no other company can" - NRN

The new McDonald's system anthem:
(Tune: I'd like to buy the world a Coke)

I'd like to build the world a home
And furnish it with love
Grow apple trees and honey bees
And snow white turtle doves
I'd like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony
I'd like to hold it in my arms
And keep it company
I'd like to see the world for once
All standing hand in hand
And hear them echo through the hills
For peace through out the land
(That's the song I hear)
I'd like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony
I'd like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony
I'd like to build the world a home
And furnish it with love
Grow apple trees and honey bees
And snow white turtle doves
I'd like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony
I'd like to hold it in my arms
And keep it company
