In the early hours of Sunday, Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) CEO, Elon Musk took to Twitter to share some of his investment tips.
He advised his followers to buy stocks in companies that make products and services they believe in as a long-term strategy.
Since I’ve been asked a lot:
Buy stock in several companies that make products & services that *you* believe in.
Only sell if you think their products & services are trending worse. Don’t panic when the market does.
This will serve you well in the long-term.

People started responding to his tweet. Here is what one of his followers said:
Bro you just sold $TSLA stock last week. You know very well that there are other reasons to sell stock besides products & services trending worse. Clarify that, before some idiot writes an article headlined:
“ELON SELLS TESLA STOCK & SAYS ONLY SELL IF BUSINESS IS TRENDING WORSE”
