The recent lackluster performance of Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) stock has been supported by its recent quarterly report, which showcased a decrease in revenue. A question has arisen among investors: Does Elon Musk believe in this company enough?
Musk recently argued that he needed a larger share in the company to make Tesla a leader in the AI and EV industry, as the current division of influence doesn’t motivate him enough towards that goal, as he wrote in his X post on January 16.
This post marks only another in the series of posts where Musk voiced his opinion on Tesla stock, the most notable being whether he should sell 10% of his stock in this company.
