The Amazon and Ford-backed EV start up, Rivian (RIVN), debuts today. RIVN opened at $106.75, a 37% pop from its IPO priced at $78, which makes its market cap bigger than that of  General Motors (GM), FedEx (FDX) or Lululemon (LULU). By the way, GM was initially interested in investing in Rivian, but its rival Ford ended up investing in the EV start-up instead.
