Why Tesla Tweets Are Nonsense

On Tuesday, Tesla Motors (NASDAQ: TSLA  ) CEO Elon Musk sent out a tweet via his Twitter account, which read: "Really exciting TeslaMotors announcement on Thursday. Am going to put my money where my mouth is in a major way." The stock jumped as high as 3% on the news. Should you buy before the news comes out on Thursday? In this video, Fool industrials analyst Blake Bos tells investors why this tweet falls into the category of "noise" around the stock, and gives us a clear picture of what you should really be basing your investment thesis on here.

Near-faultless execution has led Tesla Motors to the brink of success, but the road ahead remains a hard one. Despite progress, a looming question remains: Will Tesla be able to fend off its big-name competitors? The Motley Fool answers this question and more in our most in-depth Tesla research available for smart investors like you.

    I'm afraid this video was a waste of my valuable time. Musk already tweeted that the announcement will be delayed till after the end of the quarter anyway. The announcement will be on Tuesday I believe.
