The slide could be attributed to the ongoing investigations against the company. On Wednesday, LCID closed the day at $44.72 after gaining an increase of 1.91% during the regular trading session.
Why LCID Sliding?
A couple of days ago, numerous law firms started investigating the alleged violations of federal securities law by LCID. On December 6th, the company disclosed that earlier in the month, it received a subpoena from SEC which requested the production of some of the documents which were related to an investigation being carried out by the SEC. The investigation seems to cause concern to the business combination between Lucid and Atieva Inc. As the news came out, LCID stock price started following a downward trajectory.
