Elon Musk tweets about going private and shares 'skyrocket'

Share

It's never a boring day when Elon Musk takes to Twitter.

A spokesman for Tesla did not immediately return a request for comment.

Tesla's shares were up 6.5% at $363.46. The company is now valued at just over $60 billion, with Musk holding an nearly 20 percent stake in the company. Musk owns approximately 20 percent of those outstanding shares, which would lower the price tag a bit, but it would still be pretty hefty. "Plus this is short squeeze rocket fuel after a nice quarter", said analyst Chaim Siegel from Elazar Advisors.

The tweet suggested Mr Musk was looking at a plan to buy outstanding shares in the firm for $420 each, around a fifth higher than the share's current price.

Short interest in Tesla on Monday stood at almost $12-billion, equivalent to 28 per cent of its float, according to S3 Partners, a financial analytics firm.
