Talkspace: A Deserved Decline May Have Gone A Bit Too Far
Even by the standards of the SPAC bust, Talkspace has been a notable underperformer. There are a number of good reasons for a decline, including margin compression, sector pressure, and a clear risk to the long-term revenue outlook. Still, a 60%-plus decline does seem potentially overwrought, and there are some potentially transitory factors at play. The short- and long-term concerns are real, but investors willing to catch a falling knife should take a look at TALK stock.
