Today, investors in Churchill Capital (NYSE:CCIV) are watching as the stock slides. CCIV stock is down approximately 2% at the time of writing. Indeed, many high-profile EV-related stocks are down today. Accordingly, the special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) bringing Lucid Motors public via a reverse merger shortly hasn’t been exempted from today’s market action.
However, today’s move is also intriguing in the sense that there are upcoming catalysts investors are watching with CCIV stock. Specifically, the company’s upcoming merger with Lucid Motors is one that nearly every investor expects to go through. Yesterday, shares of CCIV stock dipped prior to today’s vote. And today’s decline appears to be a continuation of this trade, as some level of uncertainty is priced into CCIV stock.
Expectations are that this vote should pass with ease. However, today, Lucid and Churchill moved the vote for the business combination to tomorrow morning. Let’s dive into what took place and whether this represents a buying opportunity for this stock right now.
