I asked myself: suppose I have a million of TSLA shares short. Suppose I look at the stock going up EVERYDAY in spite of the bad news in the general economy. Suppose my short position is ruining me. Suppose I decide to buy a signature TSLA car tested by the most reputable evaluator there is. Then suppose I do something to ignite my TSLA close to where there will be press coverage. That would be to my benefit. I'll cover my short position and be very, very rich!
Now suppose the police got smart and begin to look at my stock holdings, and suppose they begin to really analyze that car of mine to see what happened. Just don't mind me. I'm just supposing that I could even buy a TSLA stock. That's how I think sometimes, but I don't know why.
