Though we do have a thread already dedicated to Rivian's financials, the question of IPO is likely to attract a lot of attention so we're giving it its own thread. Though it may seem early to begin talking about it now, the YouTube channel E for ELectric just addressed it in a video, and so people may want to begin discussing it now. After all, it wouldn't be surprising to see this happen sometime in 2020. Some may think -- or perhaps just -- Rivian to remain private. Personally, I think going public is all but inevitable. The auto business is capital-intensive and an IPO is one way of securing capital. If you haven't seen it yet, here's the video discussing it.
