On Friday, July 8, Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) CEO Elon Musk said that he would terminate his Twitter (NYSE: TWTR) purchase agreement.
Musk said he was going to pull out of the deal because of a material breach of multiple provisions of the agreement. Furthermore, Musk continued to assert that Twitter had misled him over the number of fake accounts and spam-bot issues.
Elsewhere, Tesla looks set to open its Supercharger network to other electric vehicles (EV) by the end of the year, according to a White House memo. Consequently, these two news stories led TSLA stock to close the trading session up over 2% and gain another 2% in the after-hours trading.
Moreover, the potential purchase of Twitter has been an overhang for TSLA’s share price for weeks as it was underperforming the market. Therefore, an end to the saga could be a boon for Tesla’s shareholders as market participants expect the stock to gain.
