Some good news for SPAC investors as the market is generally up, flow has slowed to allow the field to start clearing, and the DMYD / Genius Sports NFL deal shows that great execution can drive upside.

In yesterday's wrap we talked about how the slowdown in SPAC flow is good news for investors and it continued today, with limited action. The IPO market is still halted, and just a single S-1 was filed. Many investors would have been on the lookout for opportunities based on price, but don't sleep on the SPACs that have announced deals and teams that can execute.

Niccolo De Masi and the DMY team have been building a great SPAC track record (see RSI). Today Genius Sports announced a new data partnership with the NFL -- DMYD is taking Genius public -- and, subsequently, DMYD's stock took off like a rocket after hours, up almost 25% as of this writing.

The SPACtwit crew loved the news too:

Losing on this deal is the team at Horizon Acquisition Corp. II (HZON). Todd Boehly's HZON has been rumored to take Sportradar public and this deal sees Genius Sports replacing Sportradar who has had a deal with the NFL since 2015.
