Hot Start for SoFi, while MUDS Takes a Hit on AMC and Candy Digital News

SoFi traded well in its first day under its new ticker, while Mudrick Capital Acquisition Corp (MUDS) seemingly fell thanks in large part to a retail backlash on its AMC sale.

It's going to be merger madness over the course of the next month, and today saw the debut (really, ticker change) of SoFi (SOFI) the now De-SPAC'ed Social Capital Hedosophia V (IPOE). SOFI jumped up as much as 12% intra-day and closed up over 3% - a nice return for the stock which is already trading in the $20s (over 2x from IPOE's $10 IPO price). 

Strong De-SPAC performance could be a large determinant of companies' appetite to go public via a SPAC. Remember, De-SPACs haven't been that bad, despite the common narrative in the media. 

Light day in SPAC news otherwise, no new mergers, IPOs or S-1s post Memorial Day Weekend. Though G-Squared Ascend II filed an amended S-1 ahead of its proposed 2nd SPAC offering, raising warrant coverage from 1/5 to 1/3 per unit. This follows the trend of IPOs being harder to price, as we've been seeing downsizes and amendments to make the offerings more investor friendly. 

Look for activity to potentially pick up as the short week rolls on.  

Today's Biggest SPAC Losers

Perhaps Mudrick Capital's splashy day, it bought shares of  (AMC) - Get AMC Entertainment Holdings, Inc. Class A Report in an offering and subsequently sold down its entire position at a profit, somehow led to a selloff in its SPAC, falling ~15%. The SPAC, which has a pending deal with Topps, was also (and we'd hope more rationally) hit by Candy Digital's announcement of an NFT partnership with MLB.
