A former Tesla investor explains why he thinks Elon Musk is the wrong person to lead the company, why he dumped the stock, and what he’s now buying instead (TSLA)

Tesla's Feb. 28 announcement that it will close all physical stores was so unexpected that it prompted one registered investment advisor to dump its entire stake in the company.  Tesla has since reversed its decision, but Alex Chalekian — the CEO of Lake Avenue Financial — still feels it's not in the best interests of his clients to hold the company's shares.  In an interview with Business Insider, he outlined the issues he has with Tesla and Elon Musk, and where his firm is investing instead....

Business briefly: US stocks give up an early rally; JLL buys HFF in Texas

U.S. stock indexes closed mostly lower Tuesday after a late-afternoon splash of selling erased early gains, ending a weeklong rally. Banks accounted for much of the decline, along with utilities and industrial companies. Those losses offset gains in health care, technology and consumer products stocks. The S&P 500 index slipped 0.37 points, or 0.01 percent, to 2,832.57. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 26.72 points, or 0.1 percent, to 25,887.38. The Nasdaq composite gained 9.47 points, o...

Tesla has new rival in quest to make solar rooftops happen

Elon Musk recently declared 2019 as the “year of the solar roof.” Tesla’s chief executive officer may be right — but not in the way he’s expecting. While the automaker tries to ramp up production of its textured glass, solar cell-embedded rooftop tiles, another group of formidable rivals is emerging: roofers. One of the largest roofing companies in the world has begun offering its own version of a solar roof — essentially panels laid right up against the top of a house and surrounded by shingles...

The SEC Says Elon Musk's Rationale for Continuing to Send Out Bad Tweets 'Borders on the Ridiculous'

Last year, Tesla CEO Elon Musk sent out a baffling tweet saying that he had “funding secured” to take the company private at a share price of $420 (which some readers may recognize as the weed number).

SEC pushes court to hold Elon Musk in contempt over Tesla tweets

Tesla CEO Elon Musk is in blatant violation of a settlement agreement reached last year over securities fraud allegations, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission said in a biting response to the court that argued the billionaire entrepreneur be held in contempt. The response, which was filed late Monday, is the latest salvo in the agency’s fight with Musk that was sparked by the now infamous “funding secured” tweet.

Elon Musk’s shoes — a custom pair of Nikes with a Tesla logo emblazoned above the toe box — were the belle of the company’s Model Y unveiling last week.

SEC fires at Elon Musk, says his tweet about Tesla vehicle production was a 'blatant violation' of court settlement (TSLA)

The Securities and Exchange Commission filed its rebuttal to Elon Musk's response to the agency's contempt-of-court claim against the Tesla CEO. The Monday filing says a tweet Musk sent in February claiming that Tesla would produce 500,000 vehicles in 2019 was a "blatant violation" of a court settlement to appoint a "Twitter czar" who would vet his tweets for information material to Tesla before publishing.

Elon Musk just revealed the Tesla Model Y — and he's still the greatest car salesman who ever lived (TSLA)

Tesla CEO Elon Musk unveiled the Model Y crossover SUV last week. The new Tesla vehicle arrives after a difficult period for Musk and the company. Musk was at his best during the unveiling — in full-on salesman mode, both for the vehicle and for Tesla's vision.

Tesla's New Model Y SUV Hits the Right Note By Playing It Safe

Last night, Tesla CEO Elon Musk unveiled the company's brand new electric SUV, the Model Y. The car is only slightly larger than the Model 3 and shares 75% of its parts, leaving many people wanting more. But, as USA Today reports, "The ho-hum reaction to Tesla's new electric SUV is, oddly enough, exactly what the company needs.

Elon Musk says he aged 5 years from running Tesla in 2018 — but experts think that kind of work ethic is dangerous (TSLA)

Elon Musk said 2018 was such a stressful year at Tesla that it "felt like aging five years in one." Musk has also said he works for 120 hours a week, which is three times the average work week in the US private sector, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Overwork is an incredibly dangerous habit, research suggests. Elon Musk had a stressful year running Tesla, to put it lightly.
