The Fast Money traders discuss Tesla’s huge reversal today, ending the session higher after being down as much as 5 percent.
In August alone the entrepreneur has become the subject of an SEC investigation, made a dubious Twitter announcement about taking his company Tesla private, and gave a teary interview to the New York Times, causing Tesla shares to plummet.
Now it looks like the Saudi Arabian sovereign wealth fund, the main candidate to take Tesla private, might actually invest in a Tesla rival instead.
(13-8.2018) I left the July 31st meeting with no question that a deal with the Saudi sovereign fund could be closed, and that it was just a matter of getting the process moving. This is why I referred to “funding secured” in the August 7th announcement.
(13.8.2018) However, Mr Musk said the managing director of the Saudi fund has expressed support since his tweets.
In the course of just under two weeks, J.P. Morgan’s Tesla analyst Ryan Brinkman increased his price target for Tesla from $195 to $308 and then reversed course back to $195 this morning, all while keeping an underweight rating.

He’s a rarity in the industry: a security sleuth who doesn’t hack. Instead, he searches communication ports and the internet’s hive of connected devices to find information inadvertently made public.

Once the sensitive information has been secured, he publicly discloses that the data had been revealed.
Mr. Vickery found Level One’s data through an exposed backup server.
Das 157 Gigabyte umfassende Datenleck sei diesen Monat von einem Sicherheitsforscher entdeckt worden und habe Branchenschwergewichte wie Volkswagen, Toyota, General Motors, Ford, Fiat Chrysler und Tesla betroffen, schrieb die „New York Times“ am Freitag online.
(14.May) The owner of a Tesla Model S that crashed into a parked firetruck in Utah last Friday said she had the car’s semi-autonomous Autopilot system engaged at the time of the incident, police said Monday.
Es gibt eine Notabkoppelung, wenn das Fahrzeug zur Bergung von Insassen abgeschaltet werden muss.
A 48-year-German driver died on Thursday when his car hit a barrier on a motorway in the canton of Ticino, southern Switzerland. The car burst into flames and was attended to by Bellinzona firefighters, who say the blaze may have been caused by the Tesla battery.
Tesla has also claimed that its cars have a crash rate 3.7 times lower than average, but as we’ll see there’s little reason to think that has anything to do with Autopilot.
