    Tesla and Elon Musk

    Think he may have got himself into a slight bit of bother.

    Watch out for that Twitter account.

    He likely didn't sell any so he will be fine

    But man is he a loose cannon and just a plain ass this last year

    Probably better he take the company private

    Although he doesn't have the funding to do so, it looks
    No matter what he says

    Agree he should go private.

    But hasn't he driven the share price up by twittering and if he can't back that up.... surely that will land up in court?

    It will be a slap on the wrist

    If he had sold into it, then it would be a big issue

    So no problem for those short sellers?

    And I wonder who the backers may be on such a big deal like that?

    To be honest if were short I would have been thrilled

    Allow me to short more higher

    Although I'm surprised it didn't come off that much today
    I still think it's a a short

    The whole Tesla adventure is becoming a joke in Norway. We are the country in the world buying the most Tesla cars by capital. The problem is that the factory can't produce and deliver spare parts fast enough and people have to wait for months to get their cars repaired. A guy I know is still driving around on winter tires, still waiting for his new wheels to arrive. (which was ordered when he bought the car new 8 months ago.


    Edit....The problem is probably not only Tesla alone, but dealerships as well
    A blowjob is better than no job!!

    Sounds like private equity is going to buy into the company rather than Elon Musk himself. Possibly some foreign govts...
    Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, just as it is the spirit of a spiritless situation. It is the opium of the people.

    Given the name of the his company its a given, although I assume you have little knowledge of history or the reference I am talking about.

    Yeah he does seem to be on the edge.

    Looking into his father's behavior as well is unsettling.
