They do enough spying that I suspect they scan peoples’ phones to see if they have any other ride sharing apps installed, which cities they live/use Ride sharing the most, and offer discounts to people in their ‘home’ cities.

(Based on lazy observations with a few friends who have discounts in their home cities and use/not use other apps)

PwC fish - what is the role of a ‘TechLounge Consultant’ at PwC? Aware it’s an internal role but unsure what it entails.

CCIV - In at $14, out at $32. I still have a small position but here’s why I sold:
1) Valuation. Lucid is going to get $20B. They have CCIV captive due to this price action. $20B at $10/sh means $70B at these prices. $70B is more than F, GM, and double BMW, Ferrari. AND people expect this to pop to $70 or even $100/sh ($140B and $200B valuation respectively).
2) Price action. I think this will dip if a merger doesn’t come on Monday. I’d be more comfortable at a $40-50B valuation
