Is there a fear of stock market bubble?
So what really prompted the change in the prices? There is a rising fear on Wall Street since the last 2 months, based on a low-key hysteria in certain sectors and industry that are down. This is because there is a speculation of a stock market bubble that is rising and may burst alongside the selling of stocks by good and bad companies alike. Even though it was pointed out by JPMorgan top strategists in a virtual conference, that admittedly some sectors are seeing small bubbles but a real stock market bubble is highly unlikely. Instead, it is the fear of the bubble that is causing this sell-out.
No news on fundamentals but EBON stock can foresee bullishness
So particularly there is no disruption or news regarding the fundamentals of Ebang International Holdings (EBON)’s business operations and performance but one possible reason could be that in March, the company diluted the shareholder value of its stock by registering 13.6 million new shares of its common stocks. Eband warranted certain investors to exercise their right of selling their shares at a price of $11.06 each. The Company can get an estimate of $150 million in gross proceeds if certain investors exercise their rights. This dilution has given investors all the more reason to sell the shares on Ebang International Holdings (EBON) on a day of the slump in the market.
The IT chip producing company is in a way however indicating that it is foreseeing possible bullishness in the future because now it is warranting an $11.06 selling rights compared to the previously $5.25 price per share. This significant jump of its share price warranty suggests the company is confident in foreseeing its stock move upwards in the future.
