Q: Hi, what to you think of Volkswagen here? If I understand they used the recent Porsche IPO to raise funds to invest in the EV space - they are gunning to be the lead EV provider in Europe and compete with Tesla. But with recession looming near future looks bleak for expensive cars. Do you like VW for a focus on EV longer term over others? If so, would you hold off for awhile or is there a lot of negative baked in the current price?

Q: With an 11 dollar option price and closing of the deal expected in Q1, it seems like there is an opportunity in DWACW at 28 when DWAC has been consistently mid-80's and higher. Am I missing something?

Q: I've been a shareholder for awhile. On Feb 17, 2022 Circle / Concord announced they were doubling in value (from $4.5B to $9.0B). The company was most definitely pleased to share this which would normally be positive; however, I have a few concerns / questions.
a) I feel that the value of my investment has dropped in half. Is this correct? (I like to be wrong!)
b) Does this mean that everybodies investments has dropped in half. i.e. At one point in the last 6 months I heard that Cathy Wood's funds bought millions of shares. I assume she would also be impacted. I own a few shares of one of her funds AND ask this question because, some bigger fish may not be too happy if they got impacted as well - which could have other repurcussions for CRCL.)
c) Who is the winner here? I am guessing that a number of people possibly had their share count doubled? If not, does everybody lose? (I think the company gets more money.... but I feel that us little retail investors may not be as lucky.)
Thanks as always.

Q: Hello 5i
I believe this company is a SPAC which will give me one-for -one with WEJO when the merger takes place. I got tangled up on the spac/lawyers details. If I in fact bought VOSO shares am I in fact buying into WEJO?

Q: 5i Team.
I would be interested in your comments and review of the proposed TSX IPO from Northern Genesis Acquisition (SPAC) to support the transaction with Embark. Specific questions I have include:
1) Does the financial transaction; including actual cash injection and share ownership by Northern Genesis of the merger line out to other SPAC deals?
2) Pros/cons of perhaps investing directly in Embark on NYSE with NGAB vs. the proposed TSE listing of NGCS?
Thx. Steve
