In a Quiet SPAC Day, Lucid / CCIV Soared on Apple Rumors

After Sunday's SEAH deal, SPAC investors were hoping for a bright start to the week, but received no new positive news and limited positive price movement.

On an otherwise slow day SPAC investors watched Lucid / CCIV surge on rumors that it may do a deal with Apple. CCIV soared +16% to $23.87 -- still well off its previous high during peak SPAC, but certainly exciting for Lucid true believers as there likely have been a few that "bought the dip" recently. 

For those skeptics watching the EV / autos ecosystem the dominance of Tesla (printing more great numbers today) and increasing relevance of traditional automakers (e.g. GM, Ford, Volkswagen) in the space, Lucid will have to do more than just team up with Apple to make a long-term impact. In fact Goldman just last Thursday downgraded both Fisker (FSKR) and Lordstown Motors (RIDE) based on that increased competition.

Speaking of Lordstown Motors, it ended the day up 2.82% shaking off more allegations of malfeasance. With the flood of SPACs that will get deals done this year and de-SPAC, it will become increasingly difficult for SPAC investors to sort through which claims of badness have merit and which do not. This will add to the downward pressure post De-SPAC and test investors' willingness to stay committed to the long-term through the inevitable volatility that will result.

This weekend's deal, Sports Entertainment Acquisition (SEAH) announcing they have struck a pact with sports betting holding company Super Group, was probably a disappointment for most today. It had been up 15% in pre-market, but ended the day up just +4.5% and just over NAV at $10.22. As a reminder this is an unusual deal is it doesn't include a PIPE. SEAH, is sponsored by PJT Partners and chaired by sports business veteran Eric Grubman.

Where are Recent SPAC Deals Trading?

Looking at the latest deals, there isn't much to get excited about at the moment either. For SPACs that announced since March, there are only 7 trading at a premium to $10 of over 10% and almost 25 trading below NAV.

For investors that believe in the narrative behind these near-NAV SPACs this will be a bargain hunting opportunity. For those that are wary about the quality of recent SPAC deals, these trading levels will be further proof that the SPAC market isn't healthy yet.
