    Trying to be clever, are you? What about Tesla? We already established you know nothing about it or why anybody thinks it's worth something. You got scholled, so try and grow up; nobody here believes you know shit abut finance and investing, much less economic fantasies.

    What about Tesla?

    You said you were right, that someone offered a premium.

    So why don't you tell me about their offer?

    You got scholled,

    Who did that? Where?
    You have a particular post number where this imaginary event occurred?
    Or are you talking out of your ass again?

    I'm playing, "You're a liar, or an idiot, still".

    quadrupling down on 'Stupid'

    Stupid? LOL!
    On August 14th, you said someone offered a premium for Tesla.
    It closed at $347.64 that day. Today it closed at $301.66.
    Don't buyout offers usually make the stock go up, not down 13%?

    Come on, school me some more. DERP!

    Did anyone catch Musk's interview with Joe Rogan? Is he deliberately trying to torpedo his own company? What other explanation is there for his totally unprofessional bizarre behavior?

    At my age, I don't short stocks anymore - too much risk. But, brother, if i was 30 years younger, I would have laid on a huge short position in Tesla when the price started getting close to $400 per share. Elon Musk seems to have some serious mental issues (maybe it's the pressure) and IMO is no longer qualified to head the company. I also heard this morning that a couple of key executives in Tesla tendered their resignation, probably after that incredibly bad podcast interview yesterday.

    I think Tesla has more room to drop in the future. If you own it at a high price, about all I can suggest is that you short the shares you already own to protect yourself against any further losses.

    He wants to buy back company shares, so he doesn't care if the price drops.

    That idiot Toddster now thinks he's 'psychic' and 'wise', just because the price dropped on some news and gossip or other he had nothing to do with and no prior knowledge of.

    Anybody can play that game: I predict that at some point it goes up again! And then it might go down again after that!
