Some newly public fintech companies face tough choices in 2023
The new year didn't ring in any relief for fintech investors. Since the S&P 500 bottomed out in October, newly public fintech companies have continued to watch their stocks drop, despite some momentum returning to the market. Will these startups be forced to sell, or can they get creative with their fundraising?

Our Q4 2022 Fintech Public Company Valuation Guide tracks stock performance, revenue, EBITDA, and earnings-per-share forecasts as well as market caps of key publicly traded companies. It also includes new data on ESG, valuations of private fintech companies and a number of new charts.

Sprouting Q4 revenue did not woo public investors to indoor farming
Despite strong revenue growth, indoor farming companies didn't have such luck with their stock performance in Q4 2022, as many investors bet against their ability to survive further profit declines. Meanwhile, commodity prices settled down slightly after surging earlier in the year, yet remained historically high.

So, how did public agtech companies round out the year amid such uncertain conditions?

Check out our Agtech Public Company Valuation Guide to see the latest data on stock performance, revenue forecasts and market caps of key publicly traded companies across sectors including precision agriculture, animal agriculture and plant biotech.

Go with the (redox) flow
In the battle for grid-scale battery dominance, who will emerge victorious? Lithium-ion has proven to be far from perfect, but the alternatives—such as redox flow to metal air—also have their lists of pros and cons with much to prove. With the first winter since Russia's invasion of Ukraine approaching and threatening Europe's energy security, the interest and investment in new energy technologies have never been higher.  

In our latest analyst note, PitchBook analyst John MacDonagh dives into the figures, trends, and emerging technologies on the rise. He lays out these alternatives—and the big players that VCs are betting on.

Q&A: The draw of private markets for family offices
Family offices have been increasing their allocations to private markets in recent years due to meager returns in public markets.

Chart of the Day  
"Regionally speaking, fundraising in Asia has continued its steep downward trend of the last four years ... Much of this decline is attributed to the slow fundraising activity in China, as government pressures and policies such as zero-COVID hamper the economy and business activity."
