Tesla Inc Stock Hits Record High: Short-Sellers Are "Playing With Fire"

Tesla stock hit a major milestone on Tuesday, passing $300 a share for the first time since the company went public. The company also became the most valuable U.S. automaker as it surpassed General Motors by market capitalization just days after passing Ford. At the current valuation, Tesla's market cap is approaching $53 billion, compared to GM's market cap of nearly $50 billion and Ford's roughly $45 billion market cap.

Is a short squeeze on tap for Tesla stock?
Indeed, this is one story that's far from over, as Tesla stock has skyrocketed 20% just over the last couple of weeks. Chaim Siegel, an analyst with the global financial platform Investing.com, thinks short-sellers could be about to be blown away.

"What’s fun about following this company now is that anything can happen," he said in an email. "The potential is huge. The hopes are huge. As Model 3 ramps and jumps the sales numbers, those hopes can start to factor into earnings hopes for next year. That, combined with 25% of the float short, could mean this stock is about to catapult. We think the shorts are playing with fire ahead of this. They may not have much confidence in management, but if the company is close to targets, look out shorts."
Crazy, or just bullish?
