Hello and welcome back to Equity, TechCrunch’s venture capital-focused podcast, where we unpack the numbers behind the headlines.
This is the first Equity Shot in what feels like a long time, so, let me explain. Most of the time Equity comes out on Friday. It’s a mix of news and chat and venture happenings. It’s fun! But, sometimes, a topic comes up that demands more immediate attention. That’s what happened today as we stared at Tesla’s share price wondering what in the hell was going on.
Shares of the electric car company are surging — again — today, pushing ever-closer to the $1,000 per-share mark. So, Danny, myself, and Chris on the turntables, got together to riff and chat about what is going on.
For those of you who want some links, here you go:
- Recent Tesla battery news (China’s current economy is a fascinating, separate topic.)
- Tesla’s most recent earnings report
- Tesla’s stock chart
- A fresh analyst note
- And yet more
Today was all about fun. The main, more serious (kinda) show is back Friday. Stay cool!
