Tesla chief Elon Musk goes on defensive after bad-tempered conference call

Back in 2012, Musk commented on the short interest on Tesla's stock and warned that anyone holding a stock position against the company will have a "tsunami of hurt" coming for them.

The outspoken Musk's treatment of RBC Capital Markets' Joseph Spak and Bernstein's Toni Sacconaghi roiled Wall Street and sent Tesla's shares down 5 percent on Thursday. "Excuse me, next", Musk dismissed the question.

He gave the remaining portion of the earnings call to Tesla investor Galileo Russel, host of the "HyperChange TV" YouTube channel "We're gonna go to YouTube".

The Celtics can nearly certainly survive Embiid scoring 30 points, if they restrict the arsenal of shooters deployed around him. They were leading 29-27 early in the second quarter and looked to have survived an impressive start from the Celtics .

The billionaire cut off queries about Tesla Inc.'s capital requirements and whether it was retaining Model 3 reservation holders on a Wednesday earnings call, describing the questions as "so dry" and "not cool". The retreat comes as a relief for some short-sellers after the stock climbed for much of 2017.

Tesla's stock price dropped to $283 on Thursday, down from a record of $389 reached in September. "Do not buy it if volatility is scary".

The next day, the Goldman Sachs analyst reiterated his "sell" rating on Tesla and warned the stock could plunge another 30%.

"Actually, they shouldn't really be writing the story", he said. Analysts expect Tesla may soon need to raise $2 billion by selling additional stock or debt.

"This is a financial analyst call, this is not a TED talk", the analyst said, adding that Musk's behavior was concerning because it shows he's not interested in the financial side of his "visionary" projects.

"Reason RBC question about Model 3 demand is absurd is that Tesla has roughly half a million reservations, despite no advertising & no cars in showrooms". While Musk acknowledged he erred by ignoring questions, he also reinforced his criticism of the analysts. By the time Spak had the floor and inquired about the number of reservations for Tesla's Model 3 vehicle, Musk shut it down by saying he simply didn't want to answer "dry" questions. "Flamethrowers should arrive just in time", the CEO wrote Friday.
