Tesla Halted For Possible Securities Fraud As Musk Sends Hitler Memes (Video)

|||The Goldwater|||

Tesla CEO Elon Musk did it again. After a few months of getting into hot water over social media battles against investors, analysts and British divers in Thailand (see our related coverage) this time the former chairman of the SEC, Mr Harvey Putt, claims that his latest twitter storm, in which he warns that it might be time to take Tesla private, “could be securities fraud if he was trying to manipulate the market.”

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Elon Musk&#39;s tweet could be securities fraud if he was trying to manipulate the market, according to Former SEC Chair Harvey Pitt. <a href=""></a> <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; CNBC (@CNBC) <a href="">August 7, 2018</a></blockquote>

The first tweet of Mr Musk read: “Am considering taking Tesla private at $420. Funding secured.”

A couple of minutes later, in response to a question from another twitter user, Mr Musk tweeted: “I don’t have a controlling vote now and won’t expect any shareholder to have one if we go private. I won’t be selling in either scenario.”

Still a bit later, Mr Musk elaborated further, all the while as Tesla’s share price was driven upwards: “My hope is all current investors remain with Tesla even if we’re private. would creat special purpose fund enabling anyone to stay with Tesla. Already do this with Fidelity’s SpaceX investment.”

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Investor support is confirmed. Only reason why this is not certain is that it’s contingent on a shareholder vote. <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Elon Musk (@elonmusk) <a href="">August 7, 2018</a></blockquote>

As Mr Musk continued to respond on social media to questions to these plans, Tesla’s trading was halted as it is rose 7%. By this time, all the major business channels dared to claim ‘stock market manipulation.’

This is not Mr Musk’s first faux-pas on social media, but the difference is that this time he could face serious legal consequences. Mr Musk’s twitter announcement on the buyout could look like stock fraud if they do not out the offer to a vote. Tesla stock has been halted pending a press release which the market eagerly awaits.

Mr Musk has complained about the market price and about short sellers given that his company has been in the market a lot recently when it comes to the non-delivery of his Model 3, the first model to be intended for mass market, the Tesla layoffs and, Mr Musk’s social media chaos which has gotten him into trouble before.

Several investors have called upon Mr Musk to steer clear of social media and simply focus on his companies instead.

Over the weekend, Mr Musk had tweeted a video parody of Hitler "Shorting Tesla Stock," which targeted his foes. Business analysts on Bloomberg and the Financial Times were lost for words.

In the video, Hitler learns that Model 3 production has increased and Tesla shares are gaining. He, therefore, orders “Chanos, Einhorn, Spiegel” to stay and everybody else to leave the room, referring to vocal Tesla short-seller fund managers Mr Jim Chanos and Mr David Einhorn.

"Don't get involved with the stock market, not only is it highly rigged for insiders, if you do have access to other insiders and get tipped off on a sure deal, the feds will use it as blackmail if your in industry or politics. They keep their investors in leashes. You want a real safety net and good investment? Gold, silver, hard assets and property."

Theres a REAL insider tip.
