    This has been a gradual sell off - we havent seen the final swish of the bears tail towards the end of the downward trend. How far can this former giant fall?

    For clarity the fund raising went ahead earlier this month but the shares continue to fall. Sub-$200 - who would have guessed that 3 or 4 weeks ago?

    Wow - these share are in freefall now!

    Might we see an oppotunistic bid for the company? Might Apple look to get a big foot print in the EV market as has been rumoured in the past?

    Difficult to see any support for Tesla in the short term - it has crashed through all graph support levels and the $200 level. This is now serious!

    Not a friend in the world at the minute - surely starting to look interesting to a predator with deep pockets (Apple?).

    I see one broker put a worst case scenario value of $10 on the company's shares! If the company does survive, which I think it will, then it will be time to buy very soon :)

    I have looked into Tesla a little more deeply and while the finances are stretched to say the least (in the long term), the main problem now is confidence. Once consumers and those in the Tesla supply chain start to lose confidence with the company, this can cause massive cash flow problems. How will the company recover?

    I check this one every day now as I cant really understand how they have got the company in such a mess. More importantly , I am not sure how they can get out of the mess.

    Anyone brave enough to call the bottom on this one?

    Not even a whisper of a takeover or rumours of the company being taken private - a company with deep pockets, such as Apple, might be able to turn this around?

    I am now at a loss as to know what investors and analysts want the Tesla board to do. There were concerns about the fundraising, the company raised funds, there were concerns about running costs, the company cut running costs, the cost of vehicles was seen as too high, the company cut the cost of vehicles, the cost of vehicles was seen as too low, the company increased the cost of vehicles - what exactly do analysts and investors want?
