Buying and then selling TSLA has been really, really, really good to me over the last two weeks. ;)

Selling short, right? Or you bought the 360 PUT shortly after Elon tweeted taking the company private with TSLA at 375.
Then you sold the PUT when the SEC filed and the stock dropped to 320. Then last week when the stock was at about 310,
you shorted the stock just before Elon tweeted about the SEC. Tomorrow morning you'll cover your short with a buy at 265,
right? At that rate, you can retire early just shorting and buying TSLA. Congrats on your stock trading!

A "John Sculley" potentially the new chairman at Tesla?

James Murdoch is the top choice to replace Elon Musk as Tesla's chairman, according to a report from the Financial Times, which cited two people familiar with the matter.

And to remember history;

Musk to Murdoch:

“Do you want to spend the rest of your life selling media, just like sugar water, or do you want a chance to change the automotive world?”

Somewhat related is the news that an investment company that was a prominent TSLA short has reversed its position:

Tesla critic Citron makes U-turn ahead of results

“While the media has been focused on Elon Musk’s eccentric, outlandish and at times offensive behavior, it has failed to notice the legitimate disruption of the auto industry that is currently being dominated by Tesla,” Citron said.


Not representative of shorts as a whole, but a curious development nonetheless.

That really is kind of funny. This guy was one of the biggest shorts. Posting lots of pieces about how Tesla should be shorted. Low and behold, one of the loudest voices out there that was "focused on Elon Musk’s eccentric, outlandish and at times offensive behavior" is now stating that the "media" "has failed to notice the legitimate disruption of the auto industry that is currently being dominated by Tesla,”

It would have been a lot more honest if he had simply said "I missed it as I was focused on the wrong thing".

Most likely threatened with a lawsuit as were those posting short selling recommendations via Seeking Alpha.
Great isn't it, when corporations, e.g. Elon/Tesla, attempt to affect the efficiency of the financial markets by
promoting the elimination of short selling, e.g. used in many cases to hedge/protect a financial position?

Totally laughable;
the legitimate disruption of the auto industry


Total U.S. 2017 auto sales - 17M units

Tesla 2018 guidance - MS/MX < 150K
Tesla 2018 guidance - M3 << 200K
Total optimistic potential for 2018 < 350K

Tesla's SAM (served available market) for 2018 as a percent of TAM - .35 / 17 = 2 % (assumes 2018 U.S. TAM flat)

A real disruption, right?
