Also, they don't need to buy every outstanding share at $420 each; only those that people want to sell. So the entire cost of the buyout might be as little as $20B (rather than the whole $70B+).

From what I've read, the SWF investments are primarily non-fossil fuel related. Looks like they are wisely diversifying.

Next few days is going to be fascinating. I'm holding on to my looong position I got into in 2012, question is should I buy more.

As it stands today, you can buy at 379 and sell at 420 when the company goes private.

I'm also debating what to do, but I don't seem to be rushed into making a decision.
My investment was first and foremost based on a wish to see Tesla succeed. That has not changed so whatever I do will be subservient to that intent.

I am appalled by that traitorous maggot. I think of the hundreds of children that the maggot in chief removed by force from the their parents and casually discards in detention camps and feel a sadness I cannot describe. I am embarrassed to be an American. That you are not just puts you firmly in the scum bucket, part of the excrement in which maggots thrive.

LMAO Hey Captain Keyboard OT much? Calm down and try to stop hyperventilating long enough to Google "United States Constitution". The executive is responsible for enforcing laws; thank God we finally have a president that respects the oath he took. Barry certainly didn't. Plain and simple you're barking up the wrong branch of government.
Sorry you're embarrassed, do you need help finding the exit?

OT- Please move political discussion on a OT thread.
