Latest SPAC News:  Trump-tied SPAC DWAC surges after Elon Musks dumps Twitter deal and MANSCAPED partners with Pete Davidson

Trump-Tied SPAC Surges After Elon Musk Dumps His Twitter Bid

Investors piled back into stocks tied to former President Donald Trump after Elon Musk abandoned his planned purchase of Twitter Inc.

Shares of Digital World Acquisition Corp. (NASDAQ:DWAC), the special purpose acquisition company merging with Trump’s media venture, soared as much as 26% to $30.90 on Monday. Warrants tied to the SPAC spiked as much as 60%, while Phunware Inc.(NASDAQ:PHUN), a software company that worked on Trump’s re-election campaign, jumped as much as 26%.

The rally came after Musk said he was pulling the plug on his agreement to buy Twitter, a move that would ease some investor fears that a Musk-run operation could spell the end of Trump’s Truth Social. Devin Nunes, chief executive officer of Trump Media & Technology Group, which owns Truth Social, told Fox Business in April that Twitter wasn’t seen as a threat to the company’s ambitions.
