Musk being charged with fraud.







•Sources close to the company told CNBC the company was also expecting to be sued, though Tesla was not named as a defendant in the complaint.
•In August, Musk tweeted that he was considering taking Tesla private, adding "funding secured."

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has been sued by the Securities and Exchange Commission for fraud, according to court documents filed Thursday. Sources close to the company told CNBC the company was also expecting to be sued, though Tesla was not named as a defendant in the complaint.

The SEC plans to hold a press conference at 5 pm E.T. Shares of the automaker fell roughly 10 percent in extended trading Thursday.

In August, Musk tweeted that he was considering taking Tesla private, adding "funding secured." The tweet spurred a scandal-ridden fall for Tesla and sent the stock see-sawing for weeks.

I feel bad I didn't follow my heart which is:
Buy at 270 and sell at 300.
I'd be like a billionaire by now.

We've been over this many times, but since some people like to pretend we haven't, I'm using my sig as a place to list the fairly obvious examples of treating whites as superior to others.

Now, when lazy and disingenuous people try to claim ignorance, I'm 100% entitled to dismissing them as lazy or disingenuous. Hope it helps!

The short list

You can retire comfortably on $900 million, don't believe anyone else who tells you otherwise.

I meant, over and over again. Since tesla stock looks like this: /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/
I'd totally have like $10000*1.1^(100) which is admittedly only 137 million.

Speaking of, it's back to $300 again.

In total luck club... or make enough stupid bets that you get lucky eventually.

I bought 10 325 puts yesterday that expired today for 26 cents each. Left a ton of money on the table dumping them for 10 bucks today.

I once made a silver bet that went poorly because the Greek PM couldn't shut up. So I bailed... and two days later would have had all my money back. Stupid Greeks.

And then I didn't have enough in my account for the next trade I wanted... had to wait three days for something to settle for some reason that I still think they had wrong. I was trying to short silver. It dropped about 50% in a week, missed out on 10x return that week. Stupid broker. Still salty about that.

I'm just afraid to touch Tesla. It seems like an easy short, but, then it goes up!
