This Tweet From Tesla (TSLA) Made Shares Jump Higher

Posted on

A series of tweets from Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk were sent out over the weekend that helped shares move north.

Musk talked about a surprise product announcement and also talked down the company’s funding needs.

On Sunday, Musk tweeted that he wanted to “correct expectations” that Tesla, along with merger partner SolarCity (SCTY) , “will need to raise equity or corp debt in Q4,” saying it “won’t be necessary for either.”

When asked about a potential offering in the first quarter of 2017, Musk said “probably not then either.”
