    .
    Alot has happened since July 31st.

    Aug 7th: Elon's tweet heard around the world ... 'privatization at $420, funding secured'. (implying there is an offer on the table and the bankers are lined up)

    Every member of the Tesla Board of Directors gets a subpoena.

    Elon claims an Ambien addiction....sort of the Roseanne Barr defence for errant tweets....

    The stock price closes way lower than before the short squeeze after the original tweet. ...$305


    Shit happens.

    Musk needs an intervention. He's headed for a nervous breakdown.

    How about that 1 hour NY Times interview? Why would he even do that?

    Pssst…...over here.

    DETROIT (AP) -- First it was the shocking tweet that funding was secured and Tesla may go private, then a statement that the money wasn't locked down after all. Two weeks later it's never mind, the whole deal is off.

    'Private' mess: Musk's credibility goes from bad to worse

    DERP!

    "Secured" may end up being the costliest word Musk has ever Tweeted.

    You probably already ran out and spent your entire wad on it, got maybe 2 shares, right?

    I don't gamble in stocks; they only reason they sell them to the public is because they're not wroth much in real life, and they can make huge windfalls from idiots chasing rumors, like yourself. I invest in real equities, and only those selling under their value at the moment. You wouldn't know anything about that stuff, so just keep on with your lame attempts and pretending to know all about 'capitalism n stuff'; The world markets need suckers, and lots of them.
