    Means nothing. Many of the Tesla executives have the stock program as part of their remuneration package and the program executes automatically at stipulated times.

    There's posts all around on various threads, but I recall this specific discussion back in March 2012: Are-you-also-investing-in-Tesla

    Haha, I was about to congratulate you for having so many shares but then realized that I have the almost exactly 1/4 the number of shares that he sold too! (524 shares+call contracts as well). Thanks for pointing this out, it made me feel really good too once you pointed it out!

    I had a similar reaction. *I* sold more than that today in my first experiment to mitigate a Tesla Tuesday. Then this crash test news pops...

    For what it's worth, this makes me feel better about my short term put play in an attempt to mitigate a Tesla Tuesday.
