It was always pointless to short Tesla — and that's still true, even with the stock at epic highs (TSLA)

In 2017, I argued that it was pointless to short Tesla.  Shares were then at around $400.

A little research, however, reveals that Cohen’s veggie burger is based on yuguanfei, a vegetarian, mock-meat likely invented during the Song Dynasty. “Rice cultured wi...
