    Rivian IPO Today November 10th 2021 Pops Value over GM and Ford

      Rivian as a company trading as RIVN exceeded their wildest imagination today with their IPO.  Is it worth more than GM and Ford?

    Not since Facebook IPO has wallstreet seen such a big IPO. With today November 10th, 2021 being Rivian's or RIVN IPO which kicked off at $78 per share and has since surged to $106 per share, a 36% surge on their initial day has wall street seen such a crazy IPO.

    Rivian at the current trading price has pushed past $90 billion in book value. Course this did not stop the crazy stock pop that is normal as within minutes RIVN stock rose to $116 per share or more than a 50% jump from their starting IPO price before gain pairing happened and now is moving back and forth around the $106 per share range. This has RIVN start at a company valuation of $66.5 billion and is currently worth just a bit over $90 billion now.

    The initial upsized IPO was 153,000,000 shares of Rivian Class A common stock. Since then on Tuesday November 9th 2021, Rivian gave a 30 day option of an additional 22,950,000 Class A Common stock shares to sell is demand warrants by the underwriters. As it would seem, one would expect these shares to sell as well.

    The gross proceeds from this offering after discounts, commissions and expenses is to deposit into Rivian's bank account at least $11.9 Billion

    Rivian has stated that they have firm orders for 55,400 of their R1T and R1S auto's. They have a commitment for 100,000 Amazon Prime delivery vans of which Rivian says they will have 10,000 on the road by 2022 with the full 100,000 built and delivered by 2030 pending any additional conversions of options for more vans from Amazon to Rivian.

    Amazon (AMZN) with their $1 billion investment or 20% stake and Ford (F)  with their $500 million investment or 12% stake are both backing Rivian and Ford has plans to have Rivian build select EV's for them though nothing has been committed to yet.

    Rivian as per their own CEO RJ and based on patent documents is planning a complete EV family of products for both retail and commercial application.

    It would seem that Tesla is no longer the crazy wild EV auto company stock ride, we now have Rivian.

    Bigger question is how will Rivian do once Ford and GM launch their electric trucks in 2022?

    • This is good stuff, I am glad Ford is expanding and helping the push to eV, the faster we go all EV and EV costs come down the better.  Also it is good they are investing the education side, because this country as a whole needs more people in Manufacturing, auto repair, auto body repair and trades in general.  We kind of got away from making things here and a lot of the people doing trade jobs are older, once they retire we are screwed if there aren't young people doing it too. 2 million EV's by 2026, Tesla is already there.  GM and Ford will probably have a good battle for #2 EV maker, what I don't see from Ford is the volume vehicles outside of F150, which the Lightning as it now is far outsold by the ICE version.  Mach-E isn't a volume product, Ford needs the $30k Escape EV that can sell huge numbers.  Lincoln is a dead brand, you aren't getting volume there.  Ford could do well with pickups and vans for the commercial market.
    • @surreal1272 Common Man, your popping his conspiracy bubble of false narrative about pricing on items that are not Tesla or Mercedes AMG Fan boy crazy prices cause an American Company has built auto's that are collectors items. 🤣 Here is just a portion of what I found in my neck of the woods and I see no price reduction like SMK is saying.
    • Good lord. Did you miss the limited production part of the Demon or do you somehow think there will be millions of them 20 years from now? It should be noted that the other cars you mentioned are all less than 20 years old too so maybe (skipping the fact that I routinely see CTS-V Wagons going for right at their original sticker with low miles), pick a spot and sitka with it because you can't have it both ways. A low mile limited production Demon will fetch above original price 20 years from now. They start at $69K and the Redeye starts at $76K so...go ahead and explain this...   And this...
    • Ouch another FORD Recall. They forgot to put in the proper circuit to allow Trailer Towing. Recall Alert: The 2023 Ford Maverick Can’t Tow (msn.com)
    • Used Hellcats right now are $50-85k for the most part, nothing is going to make those go up in value.  So I don’t see the last call demon selling for like $200k 20 years from now when there will be a ton of cheap hellcats and prior demons out there All the prior CTS-V’s, Camaros, Shelby Mustangs all depreciated.
