I shorted Tesla today. What does the stock split mean for me?

Not trying to be condescending, but it seems odd that someone who doesn’t understand this is entering a risky transaction such as this.

Does not mean they can’t make money 💰

When the stock splits 5 for 1, each share will be worth 20% of the original price you shorted it for = easy 80% gain OP!

funnylikehelpful

No 20% of the value at time of split unless you are assuming the split will happen at the exact price bcg shorted?

Oh no bb what is you doing

I find it hard to believe you will be holding short until the split. Get out now and cash out your remaining trading funds and put it in a savings account. You will soon be broke

Lol same with shorting it, and same that it seems strange you don’t already know. Am I the only one that is bothered they have negative accumulated earnings and announced a split? It made stock surge for literally no reason. Making it even more of a challenge moving it into the s&p... I’m pissed about it. And for those of you who forgot...

Oh, Tulip.... I mean Tesla is a valuation nightmare right now. Takeaway front loading EV credits and it doesn’t make money. But this think did a $400 round trip in Jan on no news so it’s not a rational investment. You’re buying a vision. Same with Nikola, Workhorse, and Nio.

Tsla just has poor liquidity so the price run up is usually shorts forced liquidation. I have a theory that perhaps large positioned longs may wish to exit however it will be difficult to sell and maintain price. These splits are some sort of financial engineering masquerading under the guise allowing more people to enter the market.

There was a twitter conspiracy theory that Elon was manipulating the stick via the options market. Personally can’t figure out this big a run up, other than hype. Potentially the value is in their battery technology via licensing?

Thoughts: Managers and senior managers should intervene when project folks starts working more than 8 hours. It's sad that initially everybody talks about 8 hours work goal but employee forced or end up working more than 10 hours. Company is not asking you to work more than 8 hours, it's the pressure from peers and seniors and managers who do "a gentle request" to finish a task asap.
Also managers, Please teach new techies to hold the horses and not put there peer in pressure.
