SPAC Tracker: QuantumScape Hit by Short-Seller Report

These are the top SPAC stocks to watch that could present investment opportunities including QuantumScape, Altimeter Growth, and TWC Tech Holdings II.

There was a slowdown in SPAC flow the past few weeks giving investors an opportunity to take a breath and do their homework. There were no new SPAC IPOs priced this past week, the first such week with no new supply in quite a while.

The SPAC market may be on track to become healthier. Be careful though the field hasn't cleared yet and short sellers will make life hard for the SPACs and investors who buy into overly hyped financials and technology.

New-media company Vice Media on Wednesday was said to be in talks to merge with the San Francisco SPAC company 7GC & Co Holdings, media reports suggest.

On March 29, British online car retailer Cazoo said it would list on the New York Stock Exchange following a merger with New York-listed SPAC Ajax in a deal that values Cazoo at $7 billion.

Tim Collins shared the nine best SPAC stocks to buy from each stage of development: pre-deal, definitive agreement and post-merger.
