SPAC vs. IPO vs. Direct Listing

Subscribe

Hey everyone,

 

I'm in CRE, and had some questions relating to SPACs before investing...

 

I know I can 'just google it', but articles are either written by journalists that don't actually operate in that world or people talking their book on CNBC, so I feel like there are better viewpoints out there. 

 

Does anyone feel like giving the WSO world a rundown of the pros/cons for these three options and the winners/losers if companies continue to diversify their path to public listing?

 

Thanks

If you are using WSO to build an investment thesis around SPACs, then the best move you can make with your money is to avoid SPACs and instead invest in the S&P 500.
