Tesla shareholders should have naturally had eye-bulging reactions when they saw that Tesla posted a $65 million third-quarter net loss. Instead, people who have shown faith in the premium electric vehicle company are carrying on with their days with ear-to-ear smiles plastered on their faces due to a surprising positive bump in stock value. Yes, Tesla's stock actually went up 5.4 percent to $30.25 per share on Thursday.
Apparently, continued investment in R&D and company infrastructure for the upcoming "Model S" have been enough to maintain stability. Tesla CEO Elon Musk even flat out said that net losses are likely to continue until 2013! Regardless of what happens in the future, with that much of a loss, we'd probably dip out of that scene.
