They said it was impossible. After decades of #antitrust cases over #PredatoryPricing - selling below cost to kill or prevent competitors - the #ChicagoSchool of neoliberal #economists "proved" predatory pricing didn't exist, so courts could stop busting companies for it.

Predatory pricing - the economists explained - was illegal, but it was also imaginary. A mirage. No one would predatory price, because it was "irrational." Even if someone irrational enough to try it, they would fail. Stand down, American judges - predatory pricing is solved.

🤩 Action is gearing up on climate change, and investment in #climatetech has grown to stunning new heights.

My new report with @PwC looks at market trends and where there’s untapped potential for investors and policymakers. 🧵 1/8
🤪 The market is hot. Year-on-year growth in climate tech investment is 210%, with more than $60bn invested in startups in H1 2021 alone. 14¢ of every VC dollar is now invested in climate tech.

We’re now tracking 3000+ active climate tech startups.
📈 Megadeals are on the rise, and driving much of this recent growth. The average deal size in H1 2021 is now $96m, nearly quadruple the US$27m it was one year prior. 3/8

@VirginOrbit #SPAC filings reveal the most insane market assessment ever. IDK who these 'Prophesy' guys are, but in 2019 the total launch market was 8B$ in value. The launch market for satellites <500kg (up to 'Mini') was <1B$/year in the past 5 years. 1/… ImageImage
I don't know if anybody will be held accountable for such a blatant overestimate of the small satellite launch market value, but luring investors in believing this business is 8B$/year is incredibly dishonest IMHO, particularly in light of the usual mantra of 'reduced costs'. 2/ Image
If that market value was correct, the average price of launching 42t of mini satellites (<500kg) in 2019 would have been close to 200k$/kg. A preposterous value: we know that small launch is expensive, but not THAT expensive! 3/ Image

Seems like an inauspicious start to Trump's Truth Social media site. Hours after the press release it is defaced by Anonymous. And he is also apparently going to take this "idea" to be publicly traded in the US stock market via an #SPAC mechanism. #socialmedia
Whats an SPAC you ask? I hadn't heard of it either. Apparently its a new means 2 take an entity that has no real business to the public markets instead of the traditional means of an IPO. Given Trump's biz record of multiple bankruptcies, it seems little like a ponzi scheme 2 me
Digital World Acquisition Corp. (NASDAQ: DWAC) a publicly traded company now with Trump Media & Technology Group via an SPAC at an EV of $875 million with a potential additional earnout of $825 million. Subject to regulatory and stockholder approval.

$ORGN Goldman Sachs initiates neutral $10 Price target, 38% upside

While I would always prefer a buy rating, I thought this report was overall a net positive

It focuses on the positives we all know while the risks are more about #SPAC volatility and construction

$ORGN Positives:
* Key entrant into bioplastics space
* Potential opportunity is strong w/ unique product offering
* Main modules for O1 4 months ahead of schedule
* $ORGN did not include a price premium in its base case, could be 20-30%

$ORGN Negatives:
* Sales and earnings are still years away
* $SPACs and renewables have experienced trading volatility
* $ORGN is running behind its original schedule, just like $PCT and other bioplastics companies

I cannot find a single Cloud stock trading cheaper than $AVPT based on 22E sales. I gave up after 1.5 hours trying & using 15 attempted Cloud comps, all trading more expensively than @AvePoint. 1/5

Eventually institutional investors are going to "find" $AVPT & it will trade higher. @AvePoint's growing at 30% YoY and > 75% of its revenues are from recurring sales = great for margins. Cowen's Buy recommendation this week called AVPT "undiscovered", and Cowen is correct. 2/5 Image
$AVPT's using significant #SPAC money to build-out a salesforce to attack SMD (small & mid-size companies) which it previously couldn't afford to target. This is a huge TAM opportunity for AVPT, which is $MSFT's #1 ranked Cloud partner. 3/5

$ORGN I am seeing misinformation on cash needs following elevated redemptions. A thread to hopefully clarify. Some of this is my opinion post calls with the company and comparing to $PCT. As always, open to pushback.

TLDR: I don't think they will need to raise equity

The #SPAC was too large for this deal (my opinion). As a result they did one of the smaller PIPEs, despite announcing the transaction during the hottest point in the PIPE cycle. Many large institutional funds were scaled back significantly

Planning for no redemptions, this forced $ORGN to show very conservative plant financing - otherwise there would be too much cash and the deal wouldn't make sense. Let's compare the plant financing assumptions to $PCT, the debt % is still lower in the revised case!

Since we’re talking abt #TetragonFinancial:

Soon it’ll be 5 yrs since tht infamous Forbes clean slate/#altasset IPO article...

...and basically it’s been crickets since:…

So what’s the deal?!
Well, NO complaints from an operating perspective:

#TFG delivered 10% NAV returns in last 5 yrs & transitioned to a true #altasset mgmt firm...

...ignore rest of the portfolio, it’s jst surplus filler they’ve jammed into Polygon funds/addtl seed capital for its asset mgmt co’s.
And forget #redherrings like #Ripple...

...blame me, cos I pushed ‘em to add some #crypto #pixiedust to the portfolio, but I never expected it wd be Ripple! 😆

Bt this is MORE than balanced out by their asset mgmt jewel in the crown...

...#Equitix, now their largest hldg!

SPAC me the money!

Special Purpose Acquisition Companies, or SPACs are all the rage in Wall Street of late. They are an alternative to traditional IPOs if the intent is to take the company public.

The process is quite reverse, actually. In an IPO, a company with a defined prospectus is looking to raise funds from the market. A SPAC, on the other hand, is a company with money on its hands, looking for new business collaborations (mergers/acquisitions) to focus on.

Recently, India's Number #1 renewable energy company, ReNew Power, opted for a SPAC-IPO to go public on the NASDAQ Exchange. As more and more companies take the SPAC route, it becomes clear that investment is no longer a goal-oriented idea but a gain-oriented idea.

Something an old boss told me once when I first started public investing and lost a lot of money on a position: "If you're not losing money somewhere in the portfolio, you're not taking enough risk." #spacs #spacsquad
2/ If you’re sweating every tick up or down in a position, you’re TOO BIG. #spacs #spacsquad
3/ SPAC asymmetry with $10 pre-merger floor is your best friend. A 30% move from $10 -> $13 is FAR superior than $45 -> $60. Risking $0 to make $3 way better than risking $35 to make $15. Always be cognizant of risk/reward. #spacs #spacsquad

This is the 2nd THREAD of the $HOL / $ASTR notes and why I invested 💥💥$300K into this Space Tech startup.💥💥

If you missed the first 25 post thread, you can read it here:

Continue reading the thread below for posts 26-50: 👇👇👇
This way the customer is not building the satellite from scratch.

C) These satellites will work perfectly with the ASTRA launch vehicles for even more efficiency.

D) This cuts down the idea-to-launch-timeframes by an order of magnitude, & cuts costs down for everybody.
Their executive team appears to be stellar with a ton of experience in this space, including having worked at @SpaceX and @NASA.

It makes sense, considering they are the 3rd private company to ever achieve orbit, and they did it faster than anybody else, ever!

🔥I JUST bought $300,000.00 in ASTRA ( $HOL ) STOCK!🔥

1/ It's a #SpaceX type company & I'm very excited!

Read the 61 thread post below with my notes on WHY I did it. 👇👇👇

2/ #ASTRA ($ASTR) currently trading under the #SPAC symbol $HOL (Holicity)

It is a space company the manufactures smaller rockets and #spacecraft to allow businesses to launch into space very quickly and cheaply, from anywhere in the world.
3/ I first bought 10K shares of $HOL last week at $15...

... an additional 7500 shares this morning in pre-trading @$20/share...

...for a total of $300,000 (actually $304,233 / I rounded the share prices.)
