TSLA is now up nearly 50% from its low of the year in early January, and about 70%-100% from where it hovered most of the past year and a half before that. My question is:
How many new purchases is the appreciating stock price creating?
We've read about a lot of people on the forums saying the stock appreciation was funding their purchase. Many Tesla rank and file employees, critically important employees like factory workers, technicians, salespeople (gallery operators in Texas) perhaps have a stock plan in which they are participating (does anyone know?). Between what we've read and an assumption on my part that Tesla employees may be seeing reasonable financial gains from the stock price, how many orders are being driven by the value of appreciating stock?
1,000/yr.? More, less? Not huge, probably aptly characterized as a large blip if it's in this realm. I dunno.
