Why the WeWork SPAC Deal Is Still Not a Buy

The IPO flubbed, and WeWork will now try to go public a different way.

What's changed? This company will be under a different kind of management, called a special purpose acquisition company.

Yes, they are jumping on the SPAC train.

A WeWork SPAC deal is especially interesting since the 2019 WeWork IPO became one of the biggest disappointments of the decade.

It was one of the largest real estate companies in the world, valued at $47 billion, before cutting its valuation to $10 billion and withdrawing its IPO bid.

Here's how the SPAC deal is going down, and whether or not WeWork stock is a buy.


REITs to Sell Before a Real Estate Bubble

When the coronavirus began to shut the economy down in March, shares of real estate investment trusts (REITs) got hammered.

The shares of many REITs have since recovered, along with the broader stock market.

Many have called this buy-up a "real estate bubble." Truth be told, that's probably not the case right now.

But never hurts to be ready.

There are certainly a few REITs to sell now whether or not a real estate crash is in view.

Some of These "Dead" Shopping Malls Could Pay You Piles of Cash for Years to Come

The American shopping mall is dead, right?

I mean, ask anybody: Amazon.com Inc. and Wal-Mart Stores Inc. beat the mall to death, and there is no coming back.

No one goes to the mall, and they never will again, and all the real estate investment trusts (REITs) that own malls and shopping centers are going to zero.

Zilch. Nada. Goose egg. Worthless.

At first, this, the conventional wisdom, makes a lot of sense – to me and every other investor.

After all, no one in my house went anywhere near a mall this holiday season. What shopping we did, we did online.

Why go to the mall and put up with all that traffic and the crowds?

Well, as it happens, while everyone has been declaring the mall dead and listing all the ways they'll never set foot in another one, a very specific kind of mall has been reinventing itself – and successfully, to boot.
