Avalon Holdings Corporation

Tesla, Inc. shares closed down 3.09% on Friday with roughly 5.5 million shares traded. The electric vehicle maker's CEO Elon Musk was at it again, defending the company from nay-sayers. According to reports, Musk had contacted a blogger who criticized the company on Seeking Alpha, a financial analysis website. The blogger used the pseudonym Montana Skeptic and had a thousand followers on Twitter and Seeking Alpha for their remarks on Tesla's finances. Recently Tesla made headlines after a Wall Street Journal report broke the news that the Model 3 maker had asked suppliers for cash back. Tesla responded to the WSJ report and said that it had asked fewer than 10 suppliers for reductions in total capital expenditure spending on projects that begin in 2016 but are still not complete. A company spokesman said, "Negotiation is a standard part of the procurement process, and now that we're in a stronger position with Model 3 production ramping, it is a good time to improve our competitive advantage in this area. We're focused on reaching a more sustainable long-term cost basis, not just finding one-time reductions for this quarter, and that's good for Tesla, our shareholders, and our suppliers who will also benefit from our increasing production volume and future growth opportunities."
