Shares of Tesla, the world’s most valuable carmaker, is one of the worst performing stocks among major automakers and tech companies this year, as investors worry that Musk’s purchase of Twitter could divert his time away from Tesla.
Musk unloaded shares over three days between Monday and Wednesday, according to the filing.
