Shorter-term, however, things are starting to look ugly. The company has lost one-quarter of its peak market cap, and between the company’s inability to crank up Model 3 production, the terrible accident caused (perhaps) by their AutoPilot technology, and their oppressive capital structure, gravity’s pull is clearly working. I’m both short the stock and long some June puts. Even on a day like today, on which the Dow is flying about 300 points higher and equities are up across the board, Tesla is bleeding:
