Elon Musk says Tesla stock is ’too high’—and it quickly falls

Elon Musk tweeted Friday that Tesla’s stock price was ’too high’ in his opinion, immediately sending its shares down by nearly 13%, wiping off $14bn of the company’s value. The billionaire made the comment in a string of tweets that also saw him reveal he was selling all of his possessions. In 2018, a tweet about Tesla’s future on the New York stock market led to regulators fining the company $20m

Market manipulation? It will be interesting to see who picks up shares in Tesla on the downward journey.

Who are these morons who own Tesla stock and flip out over every Tweet Elon makes? Can they just stop investing in Tesla and go bother someone else?

This is how you know we need to roll back the tax system to when ‘America was great’, right after we kicked those fascist goon’s butts in wwII, and built the middle class. He can still launch Tesla’s into space we’ll just take a little off the top. 🤑

Musk looks out of it some times. He might be a great disigner but don't seem ideal for a CEO position.

I know it might be unconstitutional, but can the Tesla board ban Elon Musk from being on social media? He is an innovator and maverick but he does come with a self-destruct button, that he enjoys polishing often.

Sounds like musk wanted to buy some stock on the cheap. It's certainly one way to regain control of the company.

I'm genuinely impressed that I'm the first person in these comments to say that this is probably the first real example of "get woke go broke"

Elon: I think we should let the people choose to be locked down or not. Left wing media: Elon Musk is only caring about his stock bonuses. Elon: I don’t care about my stock bonuses. *burns stocks* “It’s not about the money. It’s about sending a message.” Smart move? Probably not, he will probably face major consequences (possible legal or corporate). A respectable move? Almost, he technically was playing with other people’s money makes it a tad scummy. A pro gamer move? Totally.
