A Sinister Cellar Of The TSLA Short Story?



The ongoing onslaught of anti-Tesla articles in the press surely stems from many sources, and yes, some of these are doubtless legitimate journalists who are simply describing the situation as they see it. However, it’s widely believed that much of the mud, especially the (seemingly hourly) articles that focus on financial and stock-market topics, originates with short sellers who stand to gain serious money if TSLA stock falls.
Opinions from Evannex are usually loaded with spin since their business model is associated with Tesla, but this one seems to play pretty fair. Read the full opinion at Clean Technica.

There's a lot of money to be made by killing the electric car again. Mobile Oil was the big winner when the EV1 was crushed and GM sold the patents to Mobile.

On Oct. 10, 2000, GM agreed to sell their control of the EV batteries to Texaco. Less than a week later, on Oct. 16, 2000, only days after Texaco acquired control of the batteries, Chevron agreed to purchase Texaco in a $100 billion merger.

No one's killing the electric car here. It's about manipulating Tesla stock. As highlighted in the article, Fairfax recovered from this game:

And where are they now? During its near-death experience in 2006, Fairfax’s share price reached a low of $100. On June 15, 2018, the stock closed at an all-time high of $775.
Should Tesla get control of how they spend and actually run in the black with a decent margin it all goes away. They need to stop tapping capital markets. That's where the vulnerability to shorts is.
