Until this week, Tesla’s stock had hit a rough patch.
Last week, after steady declines for most of the year, millennial investors began exiting their positions in the stock.
Data from the stock-trading app Robinhood — whose usership skews markedly younger than traditional brokerages — show Tesla was sold more than any other stock on the app over the past week, with 5,087 investors exiting their positions. That’s more than any other company on the app’s most held list, according to Business Insider’s analysis of the data.
This week, however, the stock has reversed course and risen more than 10% following the company’s annual meeting in California on Tuesday. CEO Elon Musk told investors that the Model 3 was likely to hit its production targets, something the company has routinely missed, by the end of the month. He also announced a slew of other product updates.
Still, Wall Street is growing increasingly worried that Tesla may need a cash infusion in order to stay alive. That’s in direct conflict with Musk’s claim that the company will soon be profitable.
Tesla is currently the 13th most popular stock on the app, down one position from last week, with 82,391 investors holding shares.
