Thank you for your honest expression of true love towards Elon. Your Tesla cult badge is already in the mail. Now let's put joking aside. I understand where you are coming from. Look, nobody wanted/wants Tesla to fail. Everybody wants clean energy, sunny days, birds chirping on the trees, etc. That being said Tesla is still a business. And it should be run like a business, by adults, and not lovey-dovey eyed dreamers. And if it can not profitably be run like that, then capitalism says it deserves to die. So you don't want to take advantage of Elon's eventual failure because of your emotional attachment to his ideas? Again, understandable. You might think shorters hurting the stock. Well, then don't short the stock. But there are other ways to make money of a possibly failing stock, without hurting the company. Sell option calls, and not naked ones (because a short squeeze can be still in the cards) but vertical calls. Couple of advantages: 1. Your possible profit is NOT hurting the company. 2. Time is working for you, even if the stock stays flat. 3. Your max. loss is predetermined. 4. Even if the stock moves against you, if you can time the exit well, you can get away with no loss or even gains. So what say you, are you a trader or a dreamer?
