Archer Aviation Stock: Valuation Ready For Liftoff (NYSE:ACHR) | Seeking Alpha
Archer Aviation Inc (NYSE:ACHR), an eVTOL maker that started out in the heart of space travel (Palo Alto) alongside other companies like SpaceX, is making great strides. After completing its first hover flight a few months ago, it became very clear that Archer might actually be able to achieve its challenging goals.
In this article, I will outline why I consider Archer a buy, considering its competitors, and why it may be a great long-term buy as well, provided you are not afraid to take some risk and believe in the concept of investing in disruptive innovation.
Archer Aviation was founded in 2018, by a team of industry leading engineers with a mission to change the future of air mobility. They went public through a SPAC led by Atlas Crest Investment Corp, initially being valued at over US$2.70BN in pro forma equity value.
They are currently in the process of obtaining G2 certification from the FAA for their Archer "Maker" aircraft, which is set to hit the market in 2024. Last June, the team unveiled their first real-world concept of the Maker in a stunning presentation showcasing a 2-seat model with autonomous capabilities. Although the first edition of the aircraft will not be …
Opinion: Florida Republicans' feud with Mickey Mouse highlights the widening gap between ...
There’s a growing rift between corporate America and the GOP—two groups that have long been bedfellows.
The latest incident involves Disney DIS, and its decision to speak out against a Florida law that prevents instruction of sexual orientation or gender identity from kindergarten through third grade. Republicans in the state, including the governor, reacted furiously, voting to strip Disney of the special tax and self-governing privileges it has held for 55 years.
Ron DeSantis says Disney ‘crossed a line’ by attacking ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill
The spat follows rows between the GOP and corporate America over restrictive voting measures and bathroom bills. In 2021, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell bluntly warned companies to “stay out of politics”—though he later softened his tone.
Meanwhile, Democrats are trying to capitalize on the fracture.
As a management professor, I study how corporate executives’ values and political views affect the decisions they make on behalf of their companies. While I believe CEOs are partly responsible for the growing business-GOP divide, it’s not the only factor driving it.
The close relationship between corporate America and the Republican Party dates back to the 1970s. Companies provided financial support to conservative war chests and in return received business-friendly policies like reduced corporate taxes …

Jelenew appoints ex-Chanel designer Di Liu as creative director - PR Newswire
A study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine found that more than 58% of female cyclists surveyed experienced genital numbness, hip pain, groin pain, and other physical discomforts while riding due to inappropriate pad construction. The three-section V-shaped cycling pad structure used in the Jelenew cycling pants may help women reduce or eliminate physical discomforts such as genital numbness, hip pain, and groin pain caused by cycling. It will ultimately break the cycling industry and female riders' perception of professional cycling pants and lead a healthy and comfortable revolution for women's cycling.
Di Liu revolutionarily implanted the advanced customized clothing technology -the moulage technique，3D tailoring, and the concept of "multi-scene shuttle" into the development of professional cycling clothing. The cycling pants with an external pad have become the first professional cycling pants that can be worn daily, completely eliminating a series of problems such as hot private parts, embarrassing lines, bulging of private parts, camel toe, etc. The products developed and designed by Di Liu are still in the testing stage and have won unanimous praise from professional athletes and cycling enthusiasts.
Di Liu graduated from Esmod and IPLME in Paris, France, and studied advanced garment customization and luxury management. In …
Becoming a game changer: how great ideas can come to life - Marketing Interactive
This post is sponsored by FAB Indonesia.
The COVID-19 pandemic has unquestionably presented an era-defining challenge to the marketing industry. So, as marketers, we are being challenged to think about building brands during these pandemic years, and beyond. The question is: How is marketing being redefined, and what can we do to help brands grow faster?
To be a game changer is to be innovative, to be out of step with the rest of the crowd. What’s new about change isn’t that it’s occurring, but the speed at which brands are both expected to anticipate and be able to react to it.
Being a game changer is all about delivering a great experience for your customers. While experiences are based on a wide spectrum of feelings, the outcome of these feelings, and the overall experience, will be the benchmark for an organisation’s success.
Here are several concepts to remember as you set out to change the game, and bring great ideas to life.
To deliver exceptional customer experiences throughout a whirlwind of change, marketers need to have an intelligent strategy to survive. Agile innovation and adaptive marketing strategies in the midst of a pandemic are a must to maintain the pace of business. The focus …

Is Luxury Recession-Proof? | BoF - The Business of Fashion
The global economy is sailing into a perfect storm: Europe is grappling with Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the implications for energy imports; China’s pursuit of “zero-Covid” is plunging cities like Shanghai into strict lockdowns; and the United States is staring down the barrel of the highest inflation rates in 40 years. The risk of a synchronised global downturn is rising by the day.
This would be the third global recession to strike since the beginning of this century, the other two being the Global Financial Crisis and ensuing “Great Recession” in 2008 and 2009 and the Covid-induced collapse of 2020. Whether luxury goods consumption is susceptible to recession remains a matter of debate, hinging as much on one’s definition of luxury as consumer behaviour.
The 2008-2009 crisis sent the world into a tailspin, mainly because it was the most significant contraction in the global economy since the Second World War and the last global recession was 18 years before this. Luxury stocks saw a mass sell-off. From the peak of its performance in May 2007 to its trough in March 2009, the Savigny Luxury Index (SLI) lost 62 percent of its value. (Kering was excluded from the sample as it was …

More than 1,000 agencies across the country are working every day to create opportunities and transform the lives of their neighbors, making communities stronger and helping families across the US thrive.
This year, Ashtabula County Community Action Agency (ACCAA), a proud member of the Community Action Network, will also commemorate its long-standing history helping families throughout Ashtabula County.
“Each May, during Community Action Month, we reflect on the impact ACCAA our network has had on families,” said Judith Barris, Executive Director of ACCAA. “Last year alone, we served over 13,000 individuals in Ashtabula County, and over 15 million across the country with immediately needed services such as shelter and food, and also long-term solutions like education and job placement.”
Community Action Agencies serve 99 percent of all American counties with life-changing services to help families achieve financial stability. All agencies are locally controlled and represented by the private, public, and low-income sectors of the community.
“We are proud of our communities’ participation in the development and oversight of our programs,” said Barris. “Their engagement helps us to be more …
Wildfire season sparks in Wisconsin, DNR says - CBS 58
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Wildfire season is in full swing, according to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR).
The DNR's dashboard shows there's been more than 50 fires this weekend alone.
"We're starting to see a lot of fire activity, particularly this weekend with the warm temperatures, low humidity, and increased winds," DNR Wildfire Prevention Specialist Catherine Koele said.
Most of the northern part of the state is considered to be in a very high fire danger level as of Sunday afternoon, on May 8.
Something as simple as a spark getting picked up by the wind in those conditions can turn into a full blown wildfire.
"98 percent of our fires in Wisconsin are caused by people. Folks are outside enjoying the beautiful weather, raking up their yards, and choosing to burn most of those materials," Koele said.
Koele told CBS 58 a third of the fires the DNR responds to are caused by burning debris.
A burning permit is required by the DNR in many parts of the state. Some municipalities also require a permit.
If a permit isn't required, it is recommended to let the fire department know ahead of time when and where burning is happening.
"This weekend is one of those weekends where …
