Presto Automation Inc (PRST) Shares Soar Above 1-Year High

Presto Automation Inc (NASDAQ: PRST) has experienced a rise in its stock price by 0.22 compared to its previous closing price of 0.96. However, the company has seen a gain of 7.83% in its stock price over the last five trading days. Seeking Alpha reported 2023-11-29 that PRST has dropped significantly after an initial hype phase due to a couple of unimpressive quarters. PRST is backed heavily by insiders and other large investors who want to see common shares succeed. Due to the heavy investor backing, I don’t believe that PRST is at great risk of crippling levels of dilution seen with other small cap de-SPACs in similar financial shape.
