You're basically stupid if you short Tesla unless you are doing it just to insure your legitimate Tesla position. You're betting against your own survival by doing so its Darwin award kind of stuff. But beyond that the scam that the captured media keeps pushing (because its being paid to push it) is that there is this group that believes Tesla will fail and is willing to put money on it as if it were some sort of coherent thought out consensus. You'd have to be a total fool to think that anyone outside of petrol and its proxies paid or otherwise would bet against the firm. You can look back at the pattern of negativity in the media against Tesla, its all by petrol shills and proxies or by Wall St. firms (via their con men analysts) that are up to their eye balls insuring debt on stranded petrol assets that will implode just like in 07 and bankrupt them when the next inevitable petrol bubble bursts, a bubble Tesla will likely burst. This next bubble is likely the end of the fossil fuels and Tesla is a much needed pin to that balloon. But Tesla is also inevitable because fossil fuels are about slavery and rent seeking their continued existence when they should have been retired 70 years ago has something akin to pure evil behind it. Not talking about petrol chemicals imperfect as that business is, but the 90% of other petrol revenue that is the fossil fuel side.
