    Does Elon Musk suffer from Asperger?

    He surely does fit the profile, the weirdo. His latest tweets just shedded 14b USD in shareholders market value, and he now claims he is selling all his furnitures

    I guess he could blame the COVID lockdown for it

    Elon Musk tweet wipes $14bn off Tesla's value
    Elon Musk tweet wipes $14bn off Tesla's value - BBC News

    Tesla's founder Elon Musk wiped $14bn off the carmaker's value after tweeting that its share price was too high.

    It also knocked $3bn off Mr Musk's own stake in Tesla as investors promptly bailed out of the company.

    "Tesla stock price too high imo," he said, one of several tweets that included a vow to sell his possessions.

    In other tweets, he said his girlfriend was mad at him, while another simply read: "Rage, rage against the dying of the light of consciousness."

    In 2018, a tweet about Tesla's future on the New York stock market led to regulators fining him $20m and Mr Musk agreeing to have all further posts on the platform pre-screened by lawyers.
    'Headache'

    On Friday, the Wall Street Journal reported it had asked the billionaire if he was joking about the share price tweet and whether it had been vetted, receiving the reply "No".

    Tesla's share price has surged this year, putting the electric carmaker's value at close to $100bn, a mark that would trigger a bonus payment of hundreds of millions of dollars to the entrepreneur.

    "We view these Musk comments as tongue in cheek and it's Elon being Elon. It's certainly a headache for investors for him to venture into this area as his tweeting remains a hot button issue and [Wall] Street clearly is frustrated," Wedbush Securities analyst Daniel Ives told Reuters news agency.

    In 2018, Mr Musk tweeted that he may have secured funding to possibly remove Tesla from the stock market and take it private, which again led to swings in the share price. The Securities and Exchange Commission judged it a market-moving comment, fined him and forced Tesla to put in place checks to ensure it did not happen again.

    But last month, a federal judge said Tesla and Musk must face a lawsuit by shareholders over the going-private tweet, including a claim that Mr Musk intended to defraud them.

    Wouldn't surprise me.

    Surely, he has to go to jail for this latest effort, he's been warned often enough.

    Yep, for sure.

    In the meantime I am going to tweet about Tesla shares being undervalued, easy way to make myself a lazy $14billion

    You'd like to sport an emo Goth look? Not while eating a Manwich, Shirly...

    he is fucked, the SEC is NOT going to be amused with this, he knows he has an impact on markets and needs to keep his mouth shut

    I wouldn't be surprised this time if he has to resign from the board and the company, and just remain a shareholder

    the internal compliance is going to push for it to the board, that's for sure. And of course a big SEC fine, maybe 100m USD this time.

    probably both,

    he can't no longer be associated with a public company, and he is going to get a lifetime ban if they push it seriously. Unless he explains he has a medical condition, but that's the same really.

    is SpaceX publicly traded? I think it's still private, so he might keep running things there on technical terms, but not financing or as a management executive role.

    He's probably being slowly sidelined by all the Tesla bean counters so he's going to "sock it to them"

    This is just normal shit for the Electric Jesus.

    I'm sure he knows what he is doing. Any bloke that can get away with calling somebody a pedo, can get away with this. It is the USA after all.

    He probably shorted Tesla back in late March thinking the C virus would bring it down with other nonessential business stocks. Didn't happen so he made a "comment" to force the plunge.

    He's going long now, I bet.

    Nothing wrong with different.
    Largely dependent on the variation of difference and therefore the particular judgement and critique.
