“Rivian Automotive, a company that has delivered about 150 electric pickup trucks mostly to employees, has surpassed General Motors to become the nation’s second most valuable automaker.” Amazon owned 20% of the company. Amazon has a big order for delivery vans. That deal helped the stock to soar, so Amazon is getting vans and making money in the process. Van Life is Good. Imagine what the stock would have done if Rivian had delivered like 160 or 165 trucks! (Sidenote: I really want a Rivian.)
