Depends how you define genius, but I would have to say that the following may qualify him:
After spending two years at Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario, Musk transferred to the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and received an undergraduate degree in business and a second degree in physics.He moved to California to pursue a Ph.D. in applied physics at Stanford. Elon taught himself computer programming and at age 12 sold the computer code for a video game called Blastar for $500.Musk started Zip2, a web software company, with his brother, Kimbal Musk. The company developed and marketed an Internet "city guide" for the newspaper publishing industry. Musk obtained contracts with The New York Times and the Chicago Tribune and persuaded the board of directors to abandon plans for a merger with a company called CitySearch Compaq acquired Zip2 for US$307 million in cash and US$34 million in stock options in 1999. Musk received 7% or $22 million from the sale.
I follow many of these boards and watch the nit wit posts but I seldom post unless I have a strong opinion. If you look at my history(brodband1,2and3) it will speak for itself it terms of my accuracy. With that said, never bet against a genius, and Musk is in the Gates/Jobs category.
Looks like I was right again. These dirt bags have been predictable since they did their dog and pony show in the US almost four years ago.
Judging by posting board activity it looks like the professional pump and dumps have either been manipulating the price upward or they are just stepping in to manipulate it.
