WiSA Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: WISA), “a developer of spatial, wireless sound technology for smart devices and next-generation home entertainment systems,” announced recently that it has successfully closed on a $7.6 million public offering…breathing new life into the struggling organization. The offering was made pursuant to an S-1 filing with the SEC, which declared the registration as effective on November 29, 2022.
As I write this on Wednesday, December 19th the stock market has closed down 351.98 points or nearly 1.5% to its lowest level of the year, according to CNBC. The broader S&P 500 Index also closed at a 2018 low. But as bad as this news is, perhaps even more concerning are two key indicators for the housing market – single-family housing starts and homebuilder sentiment – both of which showed disappointing results.
