Tesla shares worth $906.5 million sold by Elon Musk

Tesla shares worth $906.5 million sold by Elon Musk

Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, sold 934,091 shares of $906.49 million late Monday, according to two SEC filings.

He also exercised 2.13 million stock options at $6.24 each, issued to him in 2012.

Tesla’s stock dropped 5% to $966.41 on Monday.

The Tesla CEO’s recent insider trades were part of a “Rule 10b5-1” trading plan dated Sept. 14, the documents revealed. This type of scheme permits insiders to trade their stock at a future period.

Musk, the world’s richest man and Time Magazine’s Person of the Year for 2021, still has millions of stock options to exercise by August 2022. He said he will sell a lot of stock in the fourth quarter during the 2021 Code Conference on Sept. 28.

Musk, asked his Twitter followers on Nov. 6 whether he should sell a 10% stake in his electric car and solar businesses. “Much is made lately of unrealized gains being a means of tax avoidance, so I propose selling 10% of my Tesla stock. Do you support this?”

He asked his tens of millions of followers to vote “Yes” or “No” and claimed he would respect the outcome. According to Twitter’s poll results, 3.5 million people voted yes, 57.9%.

“Whether or not the world’s wealthiest man pays any taxes at all shouldn’t depend on the results of a Twitter poll,” said Senate Finance Committee Chairman Ron Wyden, D-Ore. “It’s time for the Billionaires Income Tax.”

Musk, opposed to a billionaire’s tax and President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better programme, shot back at Wyden.

Musk recently stated at the Wall Street Journal CEO Council Summit that “zeroing out all billionaires” would not fix the US deficit. He slammed the “anti-billionaire” mood in America.

Musk still needs to sell about 5 million Tesla shares to fulfil his Twitter poll promise.

Earlier this month, Musk sold $963.2 million worth of Tesla stock, pushing his December sales to almost $2.87 billion. In November, he sold $9.85 billion in Tesla stock.

Along with Musk, Tesla executives Zachary Kirkhorn, Taneja Vaibhav, and Drew Baglino sold Tesla stock and exercised options in December.

An electric vehicle start-up Canoo is on Apple’s radar

An electric vehicle start-up Canoo is on Apple’s radar

Despite recent setbacks for the Apple Car project, there may be a great opportunity to get things back on track. The Cupertino-based computer giant may be interested in acquiring EV company Canoo, which is currently struggling to remain afloat financially. But Apple must purchase the company as quickly as possible in order for it to be of significant use.

Despite its short lifespan, Canoo, a startup that was founded five years ago, is having difficulty finding traction. According to the electric car maker’s earnings call last week, it may not have enough money to continue functioning. A new influx of finance, however, does not guarantee that Canoo will be able to create as many vehicles in 2022 as it had previously anticipated.

According to Canoo’s most recent earnings report, the company is unsure of how long it will be able to continue operating.

There is serious question as to the company’s capacity to continue as a going concern as of the date of this release because of the timing of the investment we disclosed and the FASB accounting regulation for 2014.

In 2020, Apple was in negotiations with Canoo about acquiring the company. Sources familiar with the subject say Apple would not be interested in purchasing the technology of a faltering startup at this time. However, the company’s hardware and software engineers, as well as its developers, may be another story.

Cupertino has created the technology and people it need, at least in part, by purchasing other similar firms during the whole Apple Car initiative. When Apple acquired Drive.ai in 2019, it gained access to the company’s team of autonomous driving experts.

According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, it’s doubtful that Apple will buy Canoo for the company’s technology. A project that has lost some of its best people may benefit from engineers and developers from the troubled firm.With it, it has brought in others, including elite talent from Ford, Rivian, Tesla BMW, Mercedes and Volvo. Despite this, there’s always room for improvement.

Could potentially be instrumental in brokering a contract between Apple and Canoo through one of its recent recruits An Apple Car executive, Ulrich Kranz was also a co-founder of Canoo and the company’s previous CEO. Apple has hired a number of former Canoo employees as engineers and other staff members.

Many of Canoo’s top players have already gone, as Gurman points out. Cupertino may have to move swiftly if it hopes to get the most out of a purchase like this.

Trump believes Elon Musk will back out of his Twitter deal

Elon Musk has spoken in public recently to declare that the purchase of Twitter has not yet been finalised. He was worried about the sheer amount of bots and false accounts he would have to remove from the network. Due to the rapid rate at which phoney accounts are generated on a daily basis.

In fact, with his new platform, ‘Truth Social,’ the former president has run into this very issue. It has been described as a “bot conservative ghost town” by a number of writers and investigators. 

Donald Trump came to Truth Social to discuss Elon Musk’s refusal to purchase Twitter using his comments. His extensive essay explained why he thinks this would happen, but he also used the opportunity to promote his own platform.

Trump explained: “There is no way Elon Musk is going to buy Twitter at such a ridiculous price, especially since realizing it is a company largely based on BOTS or Spam Accounts. ake anyone? By the time you get rid of them, if that can even be done, what do you have? Not much? Just my opinion, but Truth Social is MUCH better than Twitter and is absolutely exploding, incredible engagement.”

Elon can still back out of the deal, but he’ll pay a high price for it in the long run. Musk has been doing his own investigation of Twitter’s bots, and he has asked other Twitter users to do the same. According to him, there are at least 5% of all users that are either automated or phoney.

However, as he stated, Twitter’s legal team informed him that he had breached an NDA by disclosing the technique he used to detect fraudulent accounts. Incredibly, Musk couldn’t believe what he was seeing. Even more compelling evidence why Twitter is a bad investment.
