With many Australian based fund managers now running international equities portfolios, Tesla Inc is very much in play, both as a long and as a short.
It has been a painful stock in short portfolios but over the past three months, the stock has been in steady decline, rewarding those short.
The stock bounced off around $250 twice in 2018
Shares in Tesla hit their all-time high of $389.61 in September 2017 and bounced around the $300s until late-March early-April 2018.

Shares proceeded to run back up to around $370 in June 2018 and nearly made a new all-time high in August 2018 when they hit $387.
