This issue’s pot stock isn’t really a cannabis stock, moreover that Tesla’s CEO was seen smoking weed online. August 7th, then CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, announced he was taking Tesla private, on Twitter, at $420 a share. We thought it a bit ironic he chose that number, and the stock closed at a 6 months high at $379 a share. Exactly a month later on September 7th, Elon Musk smoked a blunt on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, live streamed for the world on Youtube. The stock price fell to $263 its lowest recorded low since April.
September 27th, the US Securities and Exchange Commission filed a lawsuit against Tesla alleging that Elon Musk made “false and misleading statements” as the head of a public company in his series of August tweets about considering taking Tesla private. September 30th Elon Musk settled the lawsuit, with a fine of $20 million dollars allowing him to remain the CEO of Tesla, but resign as the Chairman of the Board. He recently made comments that he is now “The Nothing of Tesla,” removing any mention of his association with Tesla in his online bios.
Tesla reported Quarter III profits that sent their stock price surging to a $346 (at the time of writing this article). What’s interesting about Tesla is that if you had invested $1,000 in Tesla in 2010 you would have had $22,327 as of August 7, 2018. With Tesla having accomplished its original mission of making electric vehicles the norm and widely accepted as cool or elite, it’s future projections of earnings with their electric trucks show great promise.
With the leaps and bounds Tesla has made since it’s start, we think Tesla’s on track to be the next Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A – a Warren Buffet Company), which is trading at $323,935.00 per share, as of November 2018), especially since Elon Musk announced he has reduced his workweeks from 120 hour to 90 hours a week.
In Honor of Elon Musk’s Roots, We Present a South African Butternut Squash Soup Recipe
7 cups butternut squash
2 large brown onions,
3 small garlic cloves, finely
chopped or 1 elephant
2 ½ cup chicken stock
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 1/16 cup water
3 small strong green chilies
or 1 large jalapeno, no pips,
1 tablespoon melted
1 1/16 cup fresh pouring cream
Peel and pip the butternuts, and cut it into about 5cm square chunks. Peel and chop the onions quite finely. Chop the garlic very finely, or push through a garlic press. Halve the Jalapeno pepper or green chilies and scrape out all the pips. Chop the green flesh very finely. Put the onions, garlic and chilies into the melted canna butter in a saucepan on a moderate heat and cook until the onions are soft and transparent.
Add the lemon juice and chicken stock and stir until well mixed. Add the water and the cubes of butternut, and simmer until the soup is thick and all the ingredients are well blended together, about 1 hour. Liquidize with a food processor. Serve hot. Swirl a tablespoon or two of fresh cream into the centre of each bowl of soup just before serving.
