The shares of Beyond Meat Inc (NASDAQ:BYND) are up 2.3% at $137  at last check, after the plant-based food name announced the opening of its first manufacturing plant outside of the U.S. Specifically, Beyond Meat will open a facility in China, which will give the company a better way to serve the region, and cut down on operating costs.

Though the security has been cooling off over the last few months, BYND is fighting to reclaim the $135 level, which became a ceiling for the equity in late March. However, the 10-day moving average has moved back in as a layer of support, after putting pressure on the shares for much of the last month. Year-over-year, Beyond Meat stock boasts a 98.7% lead. 

The stock could benefit from an attitude shift in the options pits, which are skeptical. At the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX), the security's 10-day put/call volume ratio ranks in the elevated 90th percentile of its annual range. This shows puts have been bought to open at a much faster-than-usual clip during the past two weeks.
