Trump Media’s Stock Faces Sharp Decline, Market Cap Dips Below $5 Billion


Trump Media’s stock faced a sharp decline, closing at $37.17, marking an 8.43% drop and pushing its market capitalization slightly above $5 billion. This downturn followed a significant 12% decrease on the previous Friday, marking a challenging start to the trading week on the Nasdaq exchange.

Initially, the company experienced a surge with a high price nearing $80 just two weeks after its public debut, driven by its ownership of the Truth Social app associated with former President Donald Trump.

However, the stock’s value has steadily declined since then, with Monday seeing fluctuations where it dropped by 10% or more at times. Despite its initial market cap reaching around $8.4 billion upon trading commencement in late March, it now stands at $5.08 billion. Trump himself owns a substantial portion of the company’s stock, totaling 78.75 million shares valued at approximately $2.93 billion.

Trump’s ability to sell his shares is currently restricted for six months following a merger agreement that took the company public. However, the board holds the authority to lift this lock-up provision. Additionally, Trump stands to gain an additional 36 million shares of DJT if the stock meets specific price benchmarks over the next three years, adding further complexity to the situation.
