Shares of Beyond Meat grew 27 percent after analysts raised their price targets following the company's first quarterly report since going public. 

Since going public in May, the company's stock has grown 400 percent, reaching $7.4 billion. Analysts have now adjusted the price target to $125 per share, up from $70 previously. 

According to CNBC, the company expects annual revenue to exceed $210 million, more than doubling last year's net sales.  Interest from restaurant chains have made an impact on the company's sales. It is expected that Tim Hortons, which is currently testing a breakfast sandwich made with Beyond Sausage, will add $23 million in revenue just this year.
