Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) stock is no longer reacting to Musk’s tweets or turnover In personnel
Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) continues to make the news for many of the wrong reasons. The provocative tweets from CEO Elon Musk continue. Also, seeing the general counsel leave the company after a short stint will not exactly endear buyers to Tesla stock.
However, in a surprise, these incidents drew little reaction from TSLA stock investors. This non-response marks a turning point in Tesla. Now, investors will evaluate TSLA more on its results, not words or personnel moves. Fortunately for the bulls, these posted results point to likely growth for Tesla stock.
Tesla Still Exhibits Signs of Chaos
Tesla has seen a chaotic Presidents Day week. Word came down that Dane Butswinkas, the man who served as the firm’s general counsel, announced his departure after just two months on the job.
Also, Mr. Musk tweeted that the company would build “around 500,000” vehicles in 2019. He then clarified that they could make 500,000 per year at about 10,000 cars per week. However, production estimates remain at 400,000.
Such posts on Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) call into question the effectiveness of the settlement reached with the SEC. Part of that agreement involved reigning in Mr. Musk’s tweets. Issuing and reversing guidance in a random social media post would probably qualify as a violation.
