Seeing as electric vehicle companies are all the rage right now, let’s give you some news on one that isn’t (yet) publicly-traded…

A report from CNBC states that:

  • Rivian is expected to be amongst the first to bring an all-electric pickup to market early next year
  • They have no plans on going public at this time but maybe “open” to additional financing
  • Last year they raised $2.85 billion from companies such as Amazon, T.Rowe Price Associates, Cox Automotive and Ford


Boeing/American Airlines

American Airlines has threatened to cancel some Boeing 737 Max orders according to sources.

American Airlines is currently trading at $11.36 +1.52%.

Boeing is at $172.80 -0.28%.

Also, on another note, I can’t believe I missed the opportunity for a Beyond meat pun!

Beyond Meat’s share price has fallen 6% after Citigroup initiated a sell. They said they see margin pressure on the company due to high operating costs.
