Mithaq Capital, a major holder of Software Acquisition Group II (SAII), recently bought 369,924 shares. The buy increased the fund’s stake by 4 percent, and came to a total purchase price of $3.89 million.
This adds on to other buys from the fund since SAII went public as a SPAC offering last month. A SPAC is a special purpose acquisition company that raises capital to buy a business outright.
SPACs typically go public around $10 per share. Their price varies depending on a deal or how the market feels about the company. In this case, shares are around $10.50, not too far from the value of the cash per share.
- Man Who Predicted 2008 Crash: “The Mother of All Crashes is Coming”
If you've watched the movie The Big Short,you've heard of Michael Burry. He was one of the few who no only predicated the 2008 crash but profited from it.
He made $750 million for his investors and $100 million personally when his bet against the housing market paid off. His next big prediction?
He's warning the "mother of all crashes" is coming.
If you have any money in the markets, I urge you to click here and get the exact day of the next stock market crash.
SAII is looking to make an acquisition in the software space in the coming months.
Action to take: The price relative to the cash per share isn’t too high. Given how popular SPACs have been recently, there’s no solid gauge for a stock’s long-term performance here. It will ultimately come down to a deal.
However, with shares of the SPAC near their offering price, and how SPACs tend to rise on rumors, buyers today may be able to flip shares in the low teens in the coming weeks depending on the news that unfolds.
Typically, SPAC insiders have their shares at the outset, so seeing insider buys in this space is rare, even from a fund. That’s worthy of a speculation. For traders, there’s also the July $15 calls. Last trading with a bid/ask spread near $0.40, the option could deliver triple-digit gains… or go bust.
