33. I got the market cap from

the Yahoo Finance summary page for DJT. It now shows total market cap at 2.15B. Morningstar page shows it at 1.86B. That's why I was wondering how his shares could be valued at 3 billion.

The value obviously goes way down Johonny Mar 26 #1
Like the presidency & his constituents RevBrotherThomas Mar 26 #15
Not necessarily. CincyDem Mar 26 #17
Its up big today so far Johonny Mar 26 #24
oh yeah - on that we agree. CincyDem Mar 26 #25
You made a good argument why Trump "may not" get 3 billion, gab13by13 Mar 26 #2
True. But the use of the SPAC is done specifically so the SEC WON'T be keeping an eye on it. Scrivener7 Mar 26 #3
Yes edhopper Mar 26 #6
Not till the merger goes through, and not till he has enough collateral on paper that Deutsch Bank or Scrivener7 Mar 26 #7
The merger already went through. TwilightZone Mar 26 #9
The collateral is his stake in the stock on paper. Which is now at $73 per share. Scrivener7 Mar 26 #11

don't be so sure buying a share could be viewed as a patriotic gesture dembotoz Mar 26 #23
The price this morning is $73. If that holds, he'll get a lot more than $3 billion. Scrivener7 Mar 26 #14
How ridiculous. Just goes to show how great is to have my retirement dependent on a market of nonsense. SouthernDem4ever Mar 26 #21
So how does that work? dumbcat Mar 26 #29
In Feb, when the stock worth was estimated at $48, the estimate of the value of his personal stake was $3.8 billion. Scrivener7 Mar 26 #30

If it were $10,000 it would be over-priced. SouthernDem4ever Mar 26 #36
So I wonder which is correct. Morningstar and Marketwatch are both decent sources. Scrivener7 Mar 26 #37
