Fair to say we’re not in Kansas anymore? This is a different kind of company with a very different kind of CEO. He attempts to throw in chicanes when necessary, to prevent reckless speed and injury. When mere “sentiment” becomes infatuation, it can be dangerous. Don’t complain about Elon’s eccentricities. They’re all part of the roughage we ordered .
The WSJ is pointing out that Musk’s second warning preceded a big drop in the stock price. But look at the turn of events last fall:
Oct 3: Battery fire
Oct. 24: Musk cautions on stock price
Oct. 28: Second battery fire
Nov. 19: NHTSA opens investigation.
Obviously Musk’s comment was NOT to blame for the share slide. Rather, it was a significant crisis of confidence in the product, since corrected. And the WSJ article has since been corrected after the author received a head kick in the comments section.
