After the SEC spent a ton of man-hours looking at Elon's tweets, it is only fair they extend an equal effort on the real problem we see every trading week, which is stock price manipulations and media-shorts or analyst-shorts connections that may nclude insider-trading. Let's get a discussion going on how best to proceed. Suggestions: * Realize that shorts will be viewing this thread as well as longs. We're not out to get anybody other than lawbreakers. We're trying to see enough scrutiny be put on TSLA transactions and nefarious connections that could potentially include insider trading so that actors in the future are less likely to choose to do this. We really need the SEC to catch a few of the lawbreakers in the act so that they serve as examples to others. * We do not wish to libel anyone. I can honestly say that I have seen some very questionable behaviors in terms of timing and shorting before certain Goldman-Sachs downgrades, I think it is fair to ask the SEC to investigate as we lay out evidence, but we do not want to call someone a party to insider trading. That's the SEC's job. * We need a TON of TSLA investors who honestly believe that manipulations or insider-trading are taking place to send in tips to the SEC. Let's investigate what is legal and illegal. I hope to call the SEC this week and make some inquiries about manipulations of the stock price. It'd be a shame if 500 of us sent tips to the SEC about manipulations and what we were claiming might have been legal. Let's do our homework and then make out contacts. Why should the SEC look at TSLA for manipulations and insider trading? * It is the most heavily shorted stock on any U.S. exchange * It is the most volatile of the large-cap stocks with lots of shorting. This volatility is caused in part because Tesla as a company is only just now achieving substantial free cash flow and (hopefully) starting to show quarterly profits in Q3. * It is a favorite topic of the media * Elon is a favorite target of the media.
