Tesla’s stock has more than doubled in the last three months, with its market capitalization at $103 Billion as of the close on Thursday, exceeding that of Ford and GM combined. No stock can go straight up forever, but the short sellers have lost billions betting Tesla would stumble. Apple has now reached a market capitalization of $1.4 Trillion. Who would have thought Apple would become worth more than ten times the market cap of IBM?
