(Bloomberg) – Shares in Blankoscheck company combined with electric vehicle startup Lucid Motors Inc plunged into U S. Trading after confirming SPAC’s largest ever merger to capitalize on investor enthusiasm for battery-powered cars, Churchill Capital Corp IV, the special-purpose acquisition company led by financier Michael Klein, fell 46% Tuesday after its merger with Lucid was confirmed The deal will generate roughly $ 4 billion in cash for the 14-year-old automaker, who announced production of its debut model, will be postponed until the second half of this year, the slump follows a dramatic 472% rise in shares since Bloomberg first opened on Jan reported 11 that Lucid and Churchill were in talks Lucid shied away from comparisons with market leader Tesla Inc.However, its listing with a pro forma share value of $ 24 billion will allow the company to compete for some of the expected fast-growing electric vehicle market with the newly acquired funds to bring vehicles to market and the Casa Grande, Arizona plant Traders often sell “Sell on the News” after a long rumored deal closes The magnitude of Churchill’s decline has been particularly pronounced, meaning investors may also have been disappointed with the production delay or the terms of the contract, Lucid reckons that Bridge financing of 600 million US $ will be needed to bolster the company’s cash until the deal with Churchill closes The company expects negative free cash flow of approximately $ 10 billion through 2024, which begs the question of how it will raise additional funds. Lucid takes a sobering look under the hood of the SPAC: Chris Bryant The reverse merger marks the largest capital injection for Lucid since the public investment fund invested more than $ 1 billion in Saudi Arabia in 2018.The deal included $ 2.5 billion in private Placement in public equity or PIPE, the largest of its kind ever registered for a SPAC deal, according to a joint statement from Lucid and Churchill Capital, it was made by PIF, as well as BlackRock, Fidelity Management, Franklin Templeton, Neuberger Berman, Wellington Management and Winslow Capital headed the placement sold at $ 15 per share – a premium of 50% versus Churchill’s net asset value – which translates to a pro forma equity value of around $ 24 billion The combined company has a transaction capital value of $ 118 billion. “I see the SPAC only as a tool, another lever that we can use to accelerate our trajectory,” said Peter Rawlinson, Lucid’s chief executive officer, in an interview. “This is a technology race Tesla gets that That’s why they’re so valuable and Lucid also has the technology “The SPAC is the largest operation of Klein, a former Citigroup Inc Investment banker who has played a prominent role in steering the investments of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and acts as an advisor to the PIF, including advising on Saudi Aramco’s initial public offering.The Lucid transaction is expected to close in the second quarterProduction targets Lucid had previously announced that it would deliver its First EV, a luxury sedan named Air, will start in the second quarter. The company has now decided not to start a start date for the 169th due to discussions with Churchill CapitalSetting $ 000 car, Rawlinson said there are plans to produce cheaper versions of the Air and a battery-electric SUV at some point, the Casa Grande plant currently has a production capacity of 34000 units installed per year based on three shifts, Rawlinson said Lucid hopes that capacity will rise to 85 by 2023000 units per year after additional investments Lucid forecasts 2022 shipments of 20000 vehicles with sales of $ 2 trillion.

(Bloomberg) – With Tesla Inc Some investors fear the 11-month bull market is in trouble, leading to another sell-off of momentum darlings amid rising bond yields. Last week’s surge in yields has certainly shaken nerves on the edge of the stock market, where signs of a surplus are evident Tesla was down more than 10% from 10 a m in New York after an 8 Monday fall 6% Bitcoin fell up to 18% In a broader sense, however, the rates remain relatively low compared to the return metrics stocks offer still a premium nearly four times the historical average, if anything, earnings could skyrocket if Wall Street economists push their forecasts for economic growth to levels not seen in decades that would justify stock valuations, which appears stretched by some traditional standards The bulls’ argument for stocks at a time of rising interest rates is that the bond sell-off is caused by signals emanating from commodity markets and economic data like retail sales, and the Biden government stands ready to pass a massive spending bill, and the chairman Federal Reserve, Jerome Powell, who testified before Congress Tuesday, determined to keep short-term rates near zero “If we look at the landscape today, prices are rising for all the right reasons,” said Peter Mallouk, CEO of Creative Planning Though some believe the market must fall as it trades at the high end of valuations, he said, “The reality is that it can stay high as profits grow in.” The stocks trading this week on Under the greatest pressure, have sky-high valuations that are harder to justify with rising government bond yields. And a valuation The method, sometimes referred to as the Fed model, which compares corporate earnings to bond yields, has started moving against bulls. Currently, the S&P 500’s earnings return – how much profit you make relative to stock prices – is about 179 percentage points above the 10 return -year government bonds, smallest upside since September 2018, but any warning that flashes from this metric is weak, the current premium is still well above the 48bp average in Bloomberg data from 1962, meaning stocks are otherwise the same Conditions can still be classified as attractive relative to history if 10-year returns stay below 2.67% Returns were recently close to 136% In a release released earlier this month, Goldman Sachs Group Inc Strategists like Ryan Hammond and David Kostin said stocks are usually able to digest gradual rate hikes, especially when driven by growth rather than Fed policy, what tends to cause turbulence in stocks are sharp rises in stocks falls usually on average in a given month, when rates are rising two or more standard deviations, which is 36 basis points today, and returns are up 30 basis points this month, hitting a 12-month high Katie Nixon, chief investment officer at Northern Trust Wealth Management, Agrees “While interest rates may have risen under the tailwind of upward revisions to growth and inflation, those two variables also tend to be positive for stocks – up to a point,” said Nixon. “Only when rates rise in disorder the risk asset markets react negatively “Nevertheless, anyone who is nervous The trouble is that stocks have outperformed fundamentals, comforting the recent surge in returns”In August, as the S&P 500 fully rebounded from losses during the 2020 bear market, 10-year yields sent a threatening signal with a decline to record lows. In some ways, the catch-up process in yields suggests that the bond market is finally out Bullish economic news confirms stocks have been flashing since last March Another view: stocks look extremely stretched based on earnings reported over the past 12 months, including the pandemic recession, on this metric, the S&P 500’s price-to-earnings ratio came in at 32, surpassing the high of the dot-com era The value case is getting a little more encouraging compared to this year’s result As analysts expect earnings to jump 23% to USD 171 per share, the P / E ratio will drop to 23 If companies continue to beat estimates significantly, it would improve the picture fourth quarter profit was 16% higher al s expects a pace of positive surprises that, if continued to increase, would boost earnings from 2021 to $ 198 per share that would add up to a multiple of 20 “Which seems very high US Stock valuations are reasonable if (and only if) earnings decline sharply in the second half of the year, “DataTrek Research co-founder Nicholas Colas wrote in a recent press release.” There are certainly microbubbles (some SPACs, IPOs), but there are good case that stocks as a whole can and will find their way into high valuations”” That’s not to say that returns on stocks don’t matter right now, with the money flowing quickly out of highly rated stocks like Tesla, with the Nasdaq 100 falling for a sixth day, the longest losing streak since August 2019. At the same time, companies cut by “Investors are not positioning themselves in areas like finance and energy that really benefit from rising returns and rising commodity prices I think there is a bit of a mess,” said Lori Calvasina, head of U.S. Equity strategy at RBC Capital Markets said in an interview on Bloomberg Television, “It’s more of a story of repositioning within US.
