I have a small long trading position, however, I am not discounting the shorts. There is some big money short this stock like Barclays. 26+M shares are short, that is 23% of the float.
The shorts are looking at the Tsla balance sheet, and cash burn rate. If the sales stink and bookings are low, then the shorts make some money. However, if the picture is really positive, especially bookings, then the shorts will be forced to cover. There is not much of a float to get that many shares. Somebody got courage!
