“Should I sell 10% of Tesla stock?” Elon Musk seeks financial advice of the highest level and with significant consequences on the stock market. It does so, however, with a Twitter poll, in which over 1 million people quickly participate in about 4 hours. The tycoon, according to the latest rankings, has assets of over $ 300 billion according to Forbes estimates.
“Take note, I don’t collect a salary or bonus of any kind. I only have shares, so the only way to pay taxes individually is to sell shares,” Musk explains in a discussion on the tax issue as well. The hypothesis that the tycoon sells 10% of his stake in Tesla, of course, does not go unnoticed. “I will respect the result of the poll, whatever it is,” he specifies. In the avalanche of comments, there are also those who underline the surreal situation: “This survey decides the fate of over 20 billion Tesla shares”.
