Why is Tesla’s share falling?
While Musk continues to put the blame of falling shares on increasing interest rate, other people argue that he has been giving too much time to Twitter. Tesla’s third largest individual share holder KoGuan Leo tweeted sometime back about Tesla being left without CEO as Musk had abandoned Tesla. He also called out Musk to step down from Tesla.
Tesla stock is the main source of Musk’s fortune. Tesla does not pay him a salary, but when the business achieves ambitious performance goals, stock options are granted to him.
