Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) the only company that can actually produce and sell electric cars
Tesla shares popped as a noted short seller, Andrew Left of Citron Research, said he is now betting on the stock ahead of the company’s earnings report on Wednesday. Left’s firm has held a short position on the stock for more than two years, and he confirmed he is still suing both Tesla and CEO Elon Musk.
The shares closed up 12.7 percent on the day at $294.14 a share, as the rest of technology-related stocks were under heavy pressure.
“Citron is long Tesla as the Model 3 is a proven hit and many of the TSLA warning signs have proven not to be significant,” said Left in a blog post Tuesday. “Plain and simple – Tesla is destroying the competition.”
Tesla stock has had a volatile year thus far, swinging as much as 20 percent down in October after rising as much as 20 percent in August. Shares of Tesla got a boost from Musk settling fraud charges with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Sept. 29, which brought to a conclusion a saga that began in early August.
Another activist fund declared Tuesday it was buying Tesla stock ahead of the company’s earnings report, with Richard Pearson’s Mox Reports saying in a tweet that he thinks “numbers will be blowout.” Pearson said shares of Tesla will go above $300 after the earnings report.

A big white candle occurred. This is generally considered bullish, as prices closed significantly higher than they opened. If the candle appears when prices are “low,” it may be the first sign of a bottom. If it occurs when prices are rebounding off of a support area (e.g., a moving average, trendline, or retracement level), the long white candle adds credibility to the support. Similarly, if the candle appears during a breakout above a resistance area, the long white candle adds credibility to the breakout.
During the past 10 bars, there have been 4 white candles and 6 black candles for a net of 2 black candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 24 white candles and 26 black candles for a net of 2 black candles.
A rising window occurred (where the top of the previous shadow is below the bottom of the current shadow). This usually implies a continuation of a bullish trend. There have been 4 rising windows in the last 50 candles–this makes the current rising window even more bullish.
