Rock On, Ricochet Rabbit: From Bike Tour to Touring with Guns N’ Roses, Dirty Honey’s Marc LaBelle Can’t Find the Brakes on Success

Subspac - Rock On, Ricochet Rabbit: From Bike Tour to Touring with Guns N' Roses, Dirty Honey's Marc LaBelle Can't Find the Brakes on Success

TLDR:
– Lead singer Marc LaBelle and his band Dirty Honey have achieved tremendous success in the music industry, including topping Billboard’s Mainstream and Hard Rock charts with their debut single.
– Despite the pandemic, Dirty Honey continued to work on their music, recording their new album in Australia and teasing fans with their new single “Won’t Take Me Alive.” They are set to embark on a headlining tour after their SPAC performance.

Ladies and gentlemen, we’re here tonight to discuss the enigma that is Marc LaBelle, lead singer of Dirty Honey, a band that’s been on a wild ride of success in recent years. Now, LaBelle is a man of many talents, one of which, apparently, is time management. Let me tell you why – between endless tours, recording sessions, and opening for Guns N’ Roses, the man still found time to pedal his way through British Columbia and Alberta. You have to admire a guy with that kind of dedication, a man who can play a high-octane rock show one night and then chase Canadian geese on a bicycle the next.

Now, Dirty Honey – don’t let the name fool you. They’re not peddling some kind of illicit honey. No, they’re a rock and roll band that has been making waves in the music scene. Despite not having a record deal, they managed to top Billboard’s Mainstream and Hard Rock charts with their debut single, “When I’m Gone.” Ironically, they were nowhere near ‘gone’ when they made that achievement. In fact, they were right here, smack in the middle of the limelight, making history.

LaBelle’s musical journey began in the least likely of places – at a SPAC concert, where he had his first taste of live music, courtesy of Aerosmith. It’s a little like getting your first driving lesson in a Lamborghini. Talk about setting the bar high! Taking a few guitar lessons and honing his singing skills, LaBelle was ready to unleash his talents. And unleash he did, culminating in Dirty Honey’s debut album and forthcoming follow-up, “Can’t Find the Brakes.” Although, with their relentless pace of success, it seems the band has no need for brakes at all.

Despite the pandemic-induced hiatus from touring, Dirty Honey kept their engines running, collaborating with renowned producer Nick DiDia, with whom they finally managed to share a room with this year in Australia. They recorded their new album there, and LaBelle described the process as “magical.” Presumably, it wasn’t the kind of magic that involves pulling rabbits out of hats, but rather, the kind that results in chart-topping rock anthems. Their new single “Won’t Take Me Alive” is already out, teasing fans with a taste of the upcoming album.

Now for those of you lucky enough to get tickets to their SPAC performance, where they’ll be playing some of these new tracks, LaBelle has some advice: get there early. We can only assume that punctuality is next to godliness in the world of rock and roll. Following their SPAC performance, the band will embark on a relentless headlining tour to celebrate their album’s release. One can only imagine how much itching LaBelle will be doing without two nights off.

Just when you thought the rollercoaster ride was over, LaBelle’s journey comes full circle, as he plans to attend a concert by his favorite bands, Aerosmith and The Black Crowes, right after the SPAC show. It’s like life handed him the perfect weekend: perform at SPAC, then zip off to see his favorite bands. So, to sum it all up, Marc LaBelle and his band Dirty Honey are living the rock and roll dream, with a side of Canadian bike tours. They’re concocting a unique blend of rock music, and it seems the world can’t get enough of their sweet nectar.

“Sable Offshore: The Bolder and Cleaner Future Doesn’t Need Fossil Fuels”

Subspac -

TLDR:
– Sable Offshore is using new technology to harness the power of ocean currents for electricity generation, aiming to replace fossil fuels with renewable energy.
– Their deep-sea turbine system not only offers a trove of untapped energy but also has the potential to generate clean electricity, reducing our dependence on fossil fuels and mitigating the effects of climate change.

Alright folks, grab your scuba gear because we’re diving deep into the business of oceanic energy. We’re talking about Sable Offshore, the company that’s making waves (pun absolutely intended) in the energy industry. They’ve got this newfangled technology that harnesses the power of ocean currents to generate electricity. Forget about oil rigs and wind farms, we’re venturing into the realm of Poseidon.

The brainchild of this nautical revolution is none other than James Anderson. No, not the British cricketer; we’re talking about a different kind of boundary pusher. This guy’s vision is as vast as the ocean itself. He wants to replace fossil fuels with renewable energy, presumably so we can all sleep better at night. A noble goal, but it’s a little like trying to convince a cat to go for a swim.

What sets Sable Offshore apart from your run-of-the-mill energy company is its groundbreaking technology. It’s like they’ve taken the concept of offshore wind farms and made it submarine. Traditional wind farms are happy splashing around in the shallow end, but Sable’s turbines are ready for the deep. And with that, they’ve opened up access to a trove of untapped energy.

Behind this audacious vision is Anderson and his band of merry engineers, scientists, and business leaders. They’re like the Beatles of the business world, each playing their part in a symphony of innovation. Anderson is our maestro with his baton waving towards a greener, more sustainable future. A future where we stop burning things for energy and start taking advantage of Mother Nature’s own power sources.

And the potential of this tech goes beyond making a quick buck. With climate change hot on our heels, Sable Offshore’s deep-sea turbine system could be our saving grace. We’re talking about generating truckloads of clean electricity, reducing our need for fossil fuels and all the greenhouse gas baggage that comes with them. Not to mention, these turbines won’t be an eyesore on the horizon or a hazard for our feathered friends.

In conclusion, with its “Davy Jones’s locker” approach to energy production, Sable Offshore is set to redefine the offshore energy industry. They’re at the cutting edge of what can only be described as a blue (or should that be green?) revolution. This isn’t just change, folks; it’s transformation. And for those of you who still have faith in the old saying “The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do,” well, only time — and tides — will tell. So, stay tuned and don’t forget to keep your lifejackets handy.

Apple Finds a New Core in Health Tech with Pepperlime Acquisition: Healthy Future, Here We Come!

Subspac - Apple Finds a New Core in Health Tech with Pepperlime Acquisition: Healthy Future, Here We Come!

TLDR:
– Apple has acquired Pepperlime Health, a digital health platform, to integrate its health management tools with Apple’s products, offering personalized health monitoring and fitness solutions.
– The acquisition also brings Pepperlime Health’s team to Apple, promising further innovation in the digital health space and a focus on data privacy.

Well, folks, it seems the tech titans at Apple are hell-bent on playing doctor. In their latest power move, they’ve snapped up Pepperlime Health, a digital health platform, and not for its vast fruit salad recipes, I assure you. Established in 2016, Pepperlime Health has been a trailblazer in the digital health domain, providing innovative solutions for self-styled hypochondriacs to track their fitness goals and monitor their vitals from their smartphones.

Apple, in their relentless quest to transform us into cyborgs, sees this acquisition as a golden opportunity to blend Pepperlime’s health management tools with their own shiny gadgets. Their aim? To put a personalized, digital health nanny in your pocket. A match made in Silicon Valley heaven – or in a dystopian future, depending on your perspective.

Now, if you’re already an Apple devotee, you should be thrilled. Pepperlime Health’s advanced sensor technology will be integrated into Apple’s existing product lineup. Imagine your Apple Watch acting like a mini ER, gathering a wealth of health data such as heart rate, blood oxygen levels, and stress levels. Maybe it will even tell you when you’re about to have a heart attack from the shock of the latest iPhone’s price tag.

But wait, there’s more. Pepperlime Health’s technology will also beef up Apple’s existing health and fitness offerings. Get ready for tailored exercise routines based on your individual health metrics or personalized nutrition plans that take into account your unique dietary requirements. Soon enough, we might be seeing personalized donut recommendations based on how sad your Apple Watch thinks you are.

As part of the acquisition, Apple also inherits Pepperlime Health’s team – because nothing screams innovation like acquiring a whole bunch of nerds who’ve been figuring out how to measure your heart rate from a wristwatch. These brilliant minds will now join forces with Apple’s own legion of geniuses, promising to push the envelope of digital health even further. Or, at the very least, find new ways to remind you how much you’ve been slacking off on your workout routine.

Now, folks, I know what you’re thinking – what about the privacy aspect? Well, Apple assures us that they’ll protect our sensitive health data like it’s the last iPhone on Earth. They aim to set a new standard for the industry by putting the power of data privacy into our hands. But, let’s be real, our information has probably been shipped off to some server in a secret location before we’ve even had our morning coffee.

To wrap it up, the acquisition truly marks a significant development in Apple’s bid to redefine the healthcare landscape. Not just a business deal, this acquisition signals Apple’s commitment to inspire a new generation to take control of their health. And who knows? Maybe they’ll throw in a free check-up with every iPhone purchase.

Pop Goes the SPACs Bubble: SEC Puts Party Hats Away, Cracks Down on Over-Zealous Forecasts

Subspac - Pop Goes the SPACs Bubble: SEC Puts Party Hats Away, Cracks Down on Over-Zealous Forecasts

TLDR:
– SEC introducing new rules to strip away legal protections for SPACs, increasing transparency and accountability
– Majority of SPACs have underperformed, leading to sagging investor confidence and a growing mistrust in speculative ventures.

Well folks, it’s a new day for the Wild West of Wall Street – the Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (SPACs). As it turns out, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) decided to play sheriff and is introducing some new rules that aim to spoil the party. At the height of the SPAC frenzy, startups could make towering promises about their future without a care in the world. But, as luck would have it, much like the New Year’s resolutions we all so confidently make, many of these projections were wildly over-optimistic.

Now, the SEC is stepping in to sober things up. New regulations are expected to be enforced later this year that will strip away the legal protections SPACs previously enjoyed. Essentially, the SEC is saying, “If you’re going to make big claims pre-merger, you better be ready to face the music post-merger.” Remember kids, with great power comes, well, a litany of legal responsibilities.

In a turn of events that would make Alfred Hitchcock proud, companies like Hyzon Motors and MSP Recovery, who took the SPAC route to go public, saw their actual performances fall face-first compared to their initial projections. You can almost hear the collective groan of investors who bought into the promise of these companies. Now, with nearly half of former SPACs trading below two bucks, a reality check seems to be in order.

Now, there were some SPACs that did bring home the bacon. DraftKings, a sports betting platform, saw its shares nearly quadruple. MoonLake Immunotherapeutics, a biotech company, also saw green. But let’s not kid ourselves, these are the exceptions, not the rule. The majority of SPACs turned out to be duds, leading to sagging investor confidence and a growing mistrust in such speculative ventures.

The SEC’s new rules seem to be a step in the right direction. The regulations aim to increase transparency, accountability, and most importantly, introduce a much-needed dose of reality to the SPAC market. As for the future, it’s clear that SPACs will have to tread more carefully. The days of making grand promises without consequence are coming to an end, and a more stringent regulatory environment awaits.

In a nutshell, the SEC is making sure that SPACs can’t just talk the talk, they have to walk the walk. And, while this might spell the beginning of some tough times for over-zealous SPACs, it’s ultimately a good thing for investors and the market’s integrity. As always, time will tell how these new rules will shape the future of SPACs, but for now, it’s safe to say that the unbridled optimism surrounding these entities has been given a reality check.

All Aboard the Efficiency Express: Integrated Rail and Resource Acquisition Promises a Smooth Ride into the Future

Subspac - All Aboard the Efficiency Express: Integrated Rail and Resource Acquisition Promises a Smooth Ride into the Future

TLDR:
– Integrated Rail and Resources Acquisition plans to redefine transportation and resources industries with technology and sustainability.
– The acquisition aims to create jobs and break boundaries, but faces regulatory hurdles and technical challenges.

Well, folks, strap in and hold onto your hats because the business world is about to shake you up. In a move that has left many scratching their heads and others salivating at the potential, the Integrated Rail and Resources Acquisition has just unveiled its ambitious plans. We’re not talking about a steam engine meets pickaxe type of deal, no. This is about redefining how we transport goods, manage resources, and ruin perfectly good dinner conversations with talk of “efficiency” and “sustainability.”

The rail industry, blessed with a never-ending network of tracks and a work schedule that would make a workaholic blush, has always been the go-to guy for moving gargantuan amounts of goods and people. But like that friend who still insists on driving a gas-guzzling SUV, it’s caught flak for its environmental impact. This merger is poised to clean up its act, promising a riveting sequel to the age-old tale of the steam engine. Spoiler alert: this one’s got a green twist.

On the other side of the track (pun intended), we’ve got the resources industry. It’s like the unsung hero of our economy, keeping the wheels spinning and lights shining. But it’s been on the receiving end of its fair share of disapproving glances for its environmental record. Now the hope is that this acquisition will turn it into a lean, mean, resource-managing machine, cutting waste and making Mother Nature breathe a sigh of relief.

Now, I know what you’re thinking: “But how?” And here’s where it gets interesting. The company at the helm of this acquisition is known for its love affair with technology. We’re talking artificial intelligence, blockchain, autonomous systems, and probably a few other buzzwords they’ve got stashed up their sleeve. It’s not just about moving goods and resources; it’s about moving them smartly.

But wait, there’s more. This deal’s not just about fancy tech and environmental promises. It’s also about jobs. Lots of them. Remember, when you’re trying to redefine entire industries, you need a boatload of people to make it happen. So expect a hiring spree the likes of which haven’t been seen since someone decided building pyramids was a good idea.

This acquisition is also about breaking boundaries, shaking hands with old rivals, and singing “Kumbaya” around the corporate bonfire. It’s about finding synergies and benefits in unexpected places. Imagine a world where goods are moved efficiently, resources are managed sustainably, and corporate lingo is understandable. Okay, maybe not the last one.

However, this journey won’t be all smooth sailing. There are regulatory hurdles to clear, techie stuff to figure out, and a whole lot of spreadsheet magic to be performed. But with their shared vision and a stubborn refusal to accept the status quo, these companies are prepared to take on whatever challenges come their way.

So there you have it. The Integrated Rail and Resources Acquisition, a deal that’s all about transforming the transportation and resources industries. It’s a bold leap into the future, promising a more sustainable, efficient, and connected world. Or at least, that’s what the PowerPoint presentation says. As we wait and watch this transformation unfold, let’s hope they deliver on their lofty promises and don’t derail.

“SPAC Attack: The Surprise IPO Revolution Turning Wall Street on its Head!”

Subspac -

TLDR:
– SPACs are special purpose acquisition companies that start as empty shell companies and transform into publicly traded companies by merging with private firms.
– Prominent figures like Chamath Palihapitiya and Bill Ackman are making waves in the SPAC world, but the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is concerned about conflicts of interest.

Ladies and gentlemen, buckle up! We’re taking a thrilling ride down the Wall Street roller coaster, where the latest attraction is the ‘SPAC Attack.’ You’ve probably heard about these Special Purpose Acquisition Companies, or SPACs. If you haven’t, don’t worry, being late to the party means you probably still have your wallet.

Tracing their origin back to the 90s, SPACs are like financial chameleons – they start as empty shell companies, raise money through an IPO, and then magically transform into a new and shiny publicly traded company by merging with a private firm. Sounds simple, right? Well, it’s Wall Street, nothing is ever that simple.

The narrative wouldn’t be complete without the ‘Masters of the SPAC Universe,’ and we’ve got a couple of them – Chamath Palihapitiya and Bill Ackman. Palihapitiya, the poster boy of SPACs, has been turning private companies into public ones faster than you can say “market capitalization.” Then there’s Ackman, who broke records with his ‘SPACzilla’, raising a whooping $4 billion. They keep the press busy and the investors guessing, as they scour the markets for their next big target.

But you see, every party needs a party pooper, and in this case, it’s our beloved friends at the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). They’re eyeing these SPAC shenanigans with raised eyebrows, concerned about the conflicts of interest. It’s almost like they think that the sponsors, who get a handsome reward in the form of founder shares or warrants, might be more interested in their bank accounts than the welfare of the shareholders. Can you believe that?

All jokes aside, SPACs have undeniably flipped the traditional IPO process on its head, and whether it’s a bubble ready to burst or the future of public trading is yet to be seen. For now, we’ll watch the spectacle unfold, popcorn in one hand, and our wallets firmly in the other.

But why just spectate when you can get all the SPAC action delivered right to your inbox? Get behind the scenes with the SPAC Conference newsletter, promising the latest updates, trends, and regulatory changes in the SPAC world. Sign up today, and join the ranks of the informed. Or, you know, continue throwing darts at the financial section of the newspaper, hoping to hit the next big stock. Your choice, really.

This has been your slightly sarcastic, tongue-in-cheek tour of the SPAC universe. Remember, investing is like a game of poker. The only difference is, the house always wins. Happy speculating!

From Wish to Whimper: How a $18 Billion Online Retail Powerhouse Becomes a $173 Million Tax Haven Hopeful

Subspac - From Wish to Whimper: How a $18 Billion Online Retail Powerhouse Becomes a $173 Million Tax Haven Hopeful

TLDR:
– ContextLogic, formerly known as Wish, plans to use its $2.7 billion in net operating losses as a tax offset lure for a merger partner.
– The company is seeking a deal partner, potentially through a Special Purpose Acquisition Company, to fully utilize the tax losses and potentially revive its business.

In a move that would be laughable if it weren’t so brilliantly desperate, ContextLogic, the company formerly known as Wish, has devised a survival plan post their unceremonious sell-off to Qoo10 for a less-than-stellar $173 million. Instead of sulking, they’re turning their lemons into a potentially lucrative lemonade, aiming to utilize their $2.7 billion in cumulative net operating losses as a sort of tax offset lure for a merger partner. It’s a strategy so unconventional that it might just work – or not.

The tale of Wish is a classic one. It entered the market with a bang during the pandemic IPO frenzy, boasting a business model as an online dollar store. However, much like a dollar store balloon, it blew up impressively to an $18 billion market cap in early 2021, only to deflate just as rapidly when the business model failed to stick. Now, the deflated balloon is trying to reinflate itself with a new strategy.

ContextLogic’s plan is to become a shell company, using its $2.7 billion of losses to offset tax liability. With the US corporate tax rate at 21%, these losses potentially offer a future tax shield valued at nearly $600 million. Now they just need to find a partner willing to dance to their unusual tune. But there’s a catch – the US tax authority, like a strict chaperone at a school dance, imposes limitations on using tax losses to deter pure arbitrage transactions. This means current shareholders of Wish must retain economic control of the combined company to fully use this $2.7 billion balance.

ContextLogic is now in the market for a deal partner. It’s akin to a bachelor on a dating show, trying to find the perfect match among suitors who might not be thrilled by the unconventional proposal. They could go down the route of a Special Purpose Acquisition Company (Spac), teaming up with a private equity firm to get the capital infusion needed to buy a bigger business. This isn’t entirely unprecedented. Failed regional bank Washington Mutual’s $6 billion worth of losses were placed in a publicly traded company that eventually merged with Nationstar Mortgage.

The future of ContextLogic remains as uncertain as the quality of products once sold by Wish. Yet, the company’s determination to use its losses as a strategic advantage presents an intriguing twist in this corporate drama. For the shareholders, it’s a gamble. They can sell their shares at the current price of around $6.50, or hold onto them, hoping for a windfall if ContextLogic’s strategy pays off. It’s hard to predict whether this will end as a tragically comedic tale of a fallen giant, or an inspiring story of a company rising like a phoenix from its own ashes. One thing is certain – it’s going to be an interesting ride.

Apple: From Garage to Global Glory, One Byte at a Time

Subspac - Apple: From Garage to Global Glory, One Byte at a Time

TLDR:
– Apple Inc. was founded in 1976 by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne, and they revolutionized the tech world with their innovative computers and products.
– Despite facing setbacks, such as Jobs being fired in 1985, Apple emerged as a giant in the industry with iconic products like the Macintosh, iPhone, and iPod, and a seamless ecosystem that keeps users loyal.

Ladies and gents, gather round and take a seat. You’re about to embark on a whirlwind tour of a corporate saga that’s as juicy as a just-picked Granny Smith. Grab an apple, won’t you? And peel your eyes for the tale of Apple Inc., the tech titan that’s been stirring the pot and serving up innovation since the days when disco was king.

Picture this: 1976. A garage. A trio of tech nerds with a dream: Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne. They wanted to build computers, but not just any computers. Computers that would transform everyday schmucks into tech tycoons. Computers that would change the world.

Fast forward a few years and enter the scene: Apple I and Apple II. Like a one-two punch, they took the tech world by storm. No longer was computing the sole domain of pocket-protector-wearing academics inside stuffy labs. Now, any Tom, Dick, or Harry could tinker away in the comfort of their own homes.

But the Macintosh in 1984, oh boy, that was the game-changer. A masterpiece of simplicity and elegance, it was a computer that was more than a piece of hardware. It was a symbol, a beacon of Apple’s commitment to design and functionality. This wasn’t computing. This was computing with style.

Now, every good story needs a plot twist, and Apple’s came in 1985 when Jobs was shown the door. But like a soap opera, Jobs was back in the saddle by 1997, and he came back with a vengeance. What followed was a parade of products that broke the mold and set the world on fire. From the iMac to the iPod, and then the iPhone, each launch was another feather in Apple’s cap, another testament to Jobs’ unyielding drive for innovation.

Beyond the gadgets, Apple’s real beauty lies in its ecosystem. The harmony, the synchronicity, the seamless integration of hardware, software, and services… it’s enough to make a grown man weep. Through the App Store and iCloud, Apple has created a universe that not just locks users in, but makes them never want to leave.

Apple’s iGlass: A Head-Turning Step into the Future or Just Another Gimmick in the Apple Cart?

Subspac - Apple's iGlass: A Head-Turning Step into the Future or Just Another Gimmick in the Apple Cart?

TLDR:
– Apple unveiled the iGlass, an augmented reality headset promising to revolutionize digital interactions.
– Mustang Energy granted an extension to acquire Cykel, an AI software developer, for $24.1 million, in a move towards staying relevant in the tech industry.

Ladies and gentlemen, it appears our dear old friend, Apple, has done it again. On a bright and shiny Monday, when the rest of us were still trying to figure out how to operate our coffee machines, Apple decided to unveil its latest creation, the iGlass, to a room full of people who probably already knew about it. Let me tell you, this isn’t your grandmother’s reading glasses. The iGlass is a state-of-the-art augmented reality headset that promises to change the way we interact with the digital world, because apparently, scrolling on our smartphones wasn’t enough.

The iGlass appears to be a shiny plastic hat trick of superior design, cutting-edge technology, and a seamless integration with Apple’s ecosystem. In simpler terms, it’s a set of glasses that overlays digital information onto the real world, making your morning commute look like a sci-fi movie. With this new gadget, you can play a video game while waiting for your coffee or turn your dull office meetings into a dragon-slaying adventure. It’s all fun and games until someone tries to swat a digital fly on the subway.

Now, don’t get me wrong, the iGlass isn’t just for fun. Apple’s latest invention offers applications far beyond playing augmented reality games on your toilet. It’s designed to revolutionize everything from healthcare to education. Imagine learning about the Roman Empire with a virtual Caesar giving the lecture, or diagnosing a patient while their medical history floats in front of your eyes. This gizmo is set to change the way we work, learn, and interact with the world around us, assuming of course, we can afford it.

In other news, UK’s blank-check company, Mustang Energy, is making moves of its own. It has been granted an extension to acquire Cykel, an artificial intelligence software developer, for a cool $24.1 million. Now, I’m no business expert, but it seems like buying a company that develops artificial intelligence might just be a good idea in a world where we’re putting computers on our faces. It’s certainly one way to ensure you stay relevant when the robots eventually take over.

So there you have it, folks. While the rest of us were still waking up from our weekend slumber, Apple and Mustang Energy were busy shaping the future. One with more augmented reality headsets and artificial intelligence than you can shake a stick at. So grab your iGlasses and your AI software, because the future of technology waits for no one, and apparently, neither does Monday morning.

“Trump Media Merger Makes Digital World Stock Soar; SEC Approves and Shareholders Poised to Pop the Champagne”

Subspac -

TLDR:
– SEC approval boosts Digital World Acquisition’s stock by 29% and clears the path for merger with Trump Media.
– Investor enthusiasm for Trump’s involvement in the company drives high call volume and stock price jumps for other companies in Trump’s orbit.

Well folks, there’s nothing like a little SEC approval to give a boost to a company’s stock price. Just ask Digital World Acquisition, the blank-check firm with an appetite for Trump’s media company. After their proposed business combination with Trump Media & Technology Group got the thumbs-up from the regulators, the company’s shares skyrocketed like a firework on the Fourth of July, marking a 29% jump on Thursday alone. It’s like they’ve been shot out of a cannon, with the explosion echoing all the way back to January 22, the last time they had such a stellar intraday gain.

This SEC approval finally puts an end to the two-year long game of regulatory ping-pong that had delayed the merger with Trump Media, the proud parents of social media platform Truth Social. Apparently, all this time they’d been waiting for the SEC’s green light, and now that it’s on, the path to merger looks as clear as a gin and tonic. But don’t uncork the champagne just yet – there’s still a shareholder vote to get through. Digital World is expected to announce the date for this crucial event in the next couple of days.

Now, here’s a little something to tickle your funny bone – the soaring stock prices have been somewhat fueled by Trump’s campaign for the Republican presidential nomination. It seems investors are quite taken with the idea of hitching their wagons to Trump’s star. It’s certainly a gamble, but then again, who doesn’t enjoy a high stakes game every once in a while?

The investor enthusiasm is most evident in the high call volume traded in Digital World’s stock. Investors seem to have a particular fondness for out-of-the-money contracts looking for a little extra upside. The proof’s in the pudding – a call option set to expire on Friday, requiring just a 12% rally to turn a profit, has been the belle of the ball.

This surge in enthusiasm hasn’t been contained to just Digital World. Other companies in Trump’s orbit, including video platform Rumble Inc. and software company Phunware Inc., have also seen their stock prices jump. It’s like Trump has the Midas touch – everything he’s involved with turns to gold. Or at least, that seems to be the perception in the market.

And finally, in a move that surprises absolutely no one, Digital World has proposed a couple of former Trump administration officials, Robert Lighthizer and Linda McMahon, for board positions. It’s like a high school reunion, just with more politics and less punch.

So, there you have it, folks. The SEC’s approval has sent Digital World Acquisition’s stock prices on a joyride. It’s a brave new world for the company, with all the regulatory hurdles cleared and the merger with Trump Media & Technology Group almost in the bag. But whether this ride ends with a pot of gold or a crash landing, only time will tell.
