Whew, that feels like a weight off my shoulders! I bought at around 173 a few years ago, saw it shoot up into the mid-300s, but after Musk's erratic behavior, I decided to get out even though I think the company's battery production in particular holds a lot of potential.

So a few weeks ago, when it was in the 230s, I put in an order to sell if it hit 275, which seemed a stretch, as their stock value seemed to depend a lot on their car production numbers, which I find less...inspiring. So I lucked out and it sold at 298 yesterday.

For perspective, this is in an account where I've dabbled in a couple of individual stocks. Now all it holds is AAPL, GOOG, and GOOGL. (I got in on both before their splits, about 10 years ago.)

Anyone else getting in or out of TSLA now, or thinking about it?

(I'd prefer we avoid the issues that got the last Tesla thread closed, and stick mostly to opinions on TSLA as an investment.)

In case anyone was wondering, I don't regret it, it's been a good reminder that I need to stick to my strategy. I made about $6K when I sold, and if I had held on until now I would have made another $12K, but it's also a good reminder not to worry about could/should have beens. In this case, I bought because I believed in the company, and then I didn't, so I got out at a better point than I got in at, and overall it will make no perceptible difference in our finances.
