CCIV Stock Price Increases Over 10% Pre-Market: Why It Happened

By Amit Chowdhry ● January 25, 2021
  • The stock price of Churchill Capital Corp IV (NYSE: CCIV) has increased by over 15% pre-market as of 7:52 AM ET. This is why it happened.

The stock price of Churchill Capital Corp IV (NYSE: CCIV) has increased by over 15% pre-market as of 7:52 AM ET. One of the reasons why the stock price increased is due to a report about Lucid Motors being in talks with the Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund for an EV factory there. The fund’s Governor Yasir Al-Rumayyan confirmed the talks with The Financial Times.

The Public Investment Fund had purchased a 67% stake in Lucid Motors for about $1.3 billion in 2018. And it is believed that the new facility would be built near the city of Jeddah.

It is rumored that Lucid Motors will be going public through a reverse merger with special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) Churchill Capital Corp IV.

Investors have been closely watching Lucid Motors as a competitor against Tesla. Last year, Lucid Motors had announced the Lucid Air sedan at a price of $69,900 after subsidies.
