Stock racing back to $350 level, may drop below that tomorrow. Just shows the market no longer feels the $420 is viable, imagine the suckers who jumped in at $380 expecting a ride north of $400, instead eyeing a 10% haircut in a matter of days. Not sure which is more speculation, BitCoin or Tesla..... LOL

I guess growing up next door to "Teddy" did have an effect on me!

Hmm... the NYT must have picked up on this eh?

But it was Mr. Musk’s “funding secured” statement on Twitter that may put the iconoclastic founder most at risk. He provided no details about how much funding had been secured, from whom or under what conditions. His email to employees did not mention anything about the funding.

“That’s a clear factual statement,” said John C. Coffee Jr., a professor at Columbia Law School who specializes in corporate law and securities fraud. “If it’s not fully secure, that’s potentially a very material misrepresentation, and a very straightforward violation of Rule 10b-5” of the securities law — in short, securities fraud.

That's exactly what crossed my mind too. "What about Nikola?" He's a fascinating person.
