Tesla (NYSE: TSLA) shareholders must wondering what is going on. The stock is hitting new 52-week lows and the Chief Executive Officer is spending time these days at Twitter making sure that blue check marks go to the right people. Meantime, their car stock investment is worth less and less.
“Elon Musk certainly knows what he’s doing” is the pleasant financial media explanation that gets said and printed, but investors must be wondering about the difference between that explanation and the declining Tesla equity price. If the guy is so smart, why is he checking on blue check marks?
This is hard for mere investor mortals to understand, of course. You might think that the CEO of a company that’s just dropped even further, to even lower 52-week lows — you might think that he would be paying attention to those matters.
Experts on the issue, however, will helpfully educate you that it’s “genius” (or something) to be working elsewhere at 1 in the morning, making absolutely sure that blue check marks are going to the right people.
