Shares of Rivian Automotive Inc. sank 21% as some early stakeholders got their first chance to unload shares on Monday. 

Selling restrictions on certain Rivian insiders and investors ended on Sunday, freeing up a sizable chunk of the electric-vehicle maker’s float for public trading. The stock has now collapsed 87% from its November high. Now, the focus turns to the company’s two most prominent corporate backers -- Inc. and Ford Motor Co. -- and whether they start reducing their stakes.
