Recent News & Updates
WeWork: Heavy Debt Load With Weak Profitability
WeWork, once a Wall Street darling, went public through a SPAC merger with BowX Acquisition Corp. quietly last year. The company has made substantial changes regarding its management team and business strategy after founder Adam Neumann resigned. Despite the changes, it is carrying a heavy debt load while being nowhere near cash flow positive. The deteriorating macro environment may also post further headwind for the company going forward. I believe the company is a sell.
WeWork Could Soon Be Wee Work
WeWork has a broken business model that is unlikely to be profitable. The company is likely to find it hard to service its debt. A fundamental analysis suggests big downside in the stock.
