    ETFs Heavy with Tesla Down on SEC Lawsuit Against Elon Musk

    The tweet heard around the capital markets regarding Tesla CEO Elon Musk's idea of taking the electric auto manufacturer private is now landing him in hot water as the SEC has filed a civil lawsuit against Musk, alleging he issued "false and misleading" statements and failed to communicate material company events to regulators. Shares of Tesla (TSLA) took a deep dive as the stock plummeted over 12% as of 11:00 a.m. ET, hurting ETFs with heavy weightings, such as the VanEck Vectors Global Alt Energy ETF (GEX) --down 1.24%, ARK Industrial Innovation ETF (ARKQ) --down 1.34% and the First Trust NASDAQ Cln Edge GrnEngyETF (QCLN) --down 1.11%. Downward pressure on Tesla's share price was also applied as investors are positing whether the SEC lawsuit could bring about an abrupt departure of Musk on a temporary or permanent basis.

    ETFs with Heavy Tesla Weightings Down After Top Execs Resign

    ETFs with heavy weightings in Tesla stock were mostly down, such as the VanEck Vectors Global Alt Energy ETF (GEX) --down 0.94%, ARK Industrial Innovation ETF (ARKQ) --down 0.22% and the First Trust NASDAQ Cln Edge GrnEngyETF (QCLN) --down 0.61% as of 11:00 a.m. ET.
