Third-party delivery company DoorDash will set a share price for its initial public offering Tuesday, riding a wave of momentum that could bring it a valuation of more than $30 billion.

The company is quite different from industry peers Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) and Nikola (NASDAQ:NKLA) in its approach and offerings. Yet, it does bear some similarities to Nikola, specifically the manner in which it has come to market.

Hyliion Holdings (NYSE:HYLN) stock has had a difficult launch since it closed its reverse merger with Tortoise Acquisition Corp.
