Robinhood stocks surge by 82% raising nearly $20billion in incredible rally just six days after it held the worst ever IPO for a company of its size

Robinhood's stock flew on Wednesday, soaring by as much as 82%, nearly a week after its rocky initial public offering that saw its shares plunge 8.4% in the worst-ever debut for a company of its size.  The company that helped fuel the GameStop stock phenomenon, with its easy-to-use app, finished trading on Wednesday at $71.17 per share. That means it has more than doubled in value in four days, generating a total of $20billion in market value. Robinhood ended trading Wednesday 50.4% above the previous day in a rally that was so feverish that trading was temporarily halted three times in the first half hour after the market opened.  It's a sharp turnaround from last week's lackluster debut for the stock, when it sank 8.4% from its initial price of $38 on Thursday. Vladimir Tenev, CEO and co-founder of Robinhood, is shown on an electronic screen at Nasdaq in New York's Times Square following his company's rocky IPO, Thursday in which it saw its shares drop 8.4% from i

Prosecutors in NYC, Albany and Westchester launch sexual harassment criminal probes into Governor Cuomo - while he sticks his head in the sand and tweets about COVID from Albany mansion

Cuomo tweeted twice on Wednesday but ignored the mounting calls for him to resign  Governor Andrew Cuomo stuck his head in the sand on Wednesday, ignoring the mounting calls for him to resign or face criminal charges for sexually assaulting female staff and three looming criminal investigations.   Cuomo was found to have sexually harassed at least 11 women by a team of investigators put together by Attorney General Letitia James.  She does not have the legal scope to charge him criminally, but the Albany District Attorney said he has launched an investigation and is inviting women to come forward.  Everyone from NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio to President Joe Biden and Speaker Nancy Pelosi - some of Cuomo's most trusted Democratic allies - is telling him it's time to resign but he is clinging on, insisting he's the victim of a politicized attack by James and that his accusers either lied about him or misinterpreted his 'warmth' for sexual predatoriness.
