    "DETROIT (CBS News/AP) – Electric car and solar panel maker Tesla will remain on the public stock exchanges after CEO Elon Musk said Friday that investors have convinced him the company shouldn’t go private.

    The eccentric and sometimes erratic CEO wrote in a late-night statement that he made the decision based on feedback from shareholders, including institutional investors, who said they have internal rules limiting how much they can sink into a private company..."

    Tesla Staying Public – Musk Eats His Words
    By Adrian Ip, 9 hours ago

    "Funding secured. Those two little words may come back to haunt Elon Musk, who yesterday committed a spectacular U-turn and published a blog post on the Tesla website stating that Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) would remain a publicly traded company (here).

    Once again, the Musk unpredictability has shone through to the fore and Tesla’s stock price has taken a battering.

    Delving into Elon’s post, it’s quite clear that despite being in many respects a captain of industry, there is a surprising amount about the financial aspects of running a company which the man simply doesn’t understand, not least among them the fact that some things can land you in hot water if you don’t listen to (or even consult) your advisors who are there to protect both you and the company..."

    And now we have Elon smoking a joint live on-air with Joe Rogan. Whatever you opinion on marijuana use, the bottom line is that optics matter. This is not appropriate behavior for a CEO whose every move is under scrutiny. It's time for the Tesla board and shareholders to ponder on Musk's ability to make decisions and either get him under control or oust him.

    Elon Musk To Resign As Tesla Chairman In SEC Settlement
    Musk will still keep his title of CEO.
    By Sebastian Murdock
    https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entr...as-tesla-chairman_us_5baff33ae4b0343b3dc0b452

    "Tech giant Elon Musk is resigning as Tesla’s chairman but will remain as CEO after he settled charges with the Securities and Exchange Commission, according to documents.

    Musk will have to pay a civil penalty of $20 million after he made a series of “false and misleading” tweets about potentially taking his car company private, according to the SEC. Tesla will also have to pay an additional $20 million. Though stepping down as chairman, Musk will remain on the board. "
    ...
    "Musk will have to resign in the next 45 days and won’t be able to join the board as chairman for three years after his resignation, according to the settlement.

    The settlement also includes the addition of two independent directors to the Tesla board, and the other governance enhancements.

    SEC chairman Jay Clayton hailed the “prompt resolution of the matter,” and said in a statement that the settlement is in the “best interests of our markets and our investors, including the shareholders of Tesla.”
