Is Elon Musk Done Selling Tesla Stock?

That means Elon Musk isn’t done selling Tesla stock yet but I don’t think TSLA shares will drop that much. Much of his preplanned Tesla stock sale has already been priced in plus TSLA stock is down 44% YTD.

According to Insider, Elon Musk has lined up around $12 in debt financing but needs to raise another $32 billion to close the deal. That means Elon Musk may dump some more Tesla shares to end the Twitter saga once and for all.

Elon is known for selling at market tops so be prepared for more downside risk in the future.

Should Tesla Shareholders Be Worried About Elon Musk Selling TSLA Shares?

I don’t expect much of a reaction to Elon Musk’s TSLA stock sale in the current market environment. Tesla continues to grow its revenue and net income despite Elon Musk’s antics on Titter and social media. The company could be worth more than Apple and Saudi Aramco combined in the future if everything goes as planned.

Does it matter that Elon Musk is selling some of his TSLA stock? Not really if you ask me because CEOs sell shares at the time to fund different projects. Elon Musk is not an all-in 100% investor like Warren Buffett. He is well known for managing several different companies at once including Tesla, SpaceX, The Boring Company, etc.

As long as Tesla grows its EPS and net income then I’m not worried about Elon Musk selling Tesla shares. If the business starts tanking then Tesla shareholders should be worried. So far, so good.
