Then I'd be sorely tempted to short TSLA. By then the hedge funds will have thrown in the towel and put options won't be as outrageously expensive as they are today.

Besides the obvious historical reliability of that special recognition as a peak indicator, Musk on Time's cover will be a special case; it will doubly serve as an echo of the fate of his company's namesake.

Nikola Tesla made the cover of Time Magazine in 1931.

What happened after that.

I've always wondered whether Musk in choosing Tesla to name his company consciously or not sees in himself some of both of Nikola Tesla's genius and his fatal flaws, grandiosity chief among the latter.
