That's why I only invest in businesses where I believe in their fundamentals and CEO. Poor management (or unpredictable management) just isn't worth it.

Yep. It took me too long to sell TSLA because I had in mind a certain profit I wanted to make. It's really kind of dumb, but I pretty much got away with it luckily, and now it's nice to be unencumbered by those shares. Because, like you, I try not to own any company in which I can't trust the CEO.

With the scholarship change, I can see more guys buried at the end of the bench planning their departure and creating dissension.
I do not see Shaka in the portal until there are several unexpected departures at the same time.
I wonder if all 15 are utilized? Maybe bank 2 for reasons you suggest.

I don't blame Markus, I blame Wojo for that team falling apart.

Markus was doing what was asked of him.

You've provided an example in one sentence of the hubris and disintegration of the human race.  And keep in mind what a humpback whale could do to boats (with passengers) if he/she was vindictive.  They're among the kindest members of the entire animal kingdom.  If they had my personality, and held grudges, we would see an elimination of a myriad of vessels.  The fact that they don't do that further illustrates their great intelligence and caring hearts.

So to defend a couple of moronic whales, you've basically said your temperament makes you want to commit terroristic destruction on humans. Think we gotta have ole mugs look in the mirror at this disintegration of the human race.

Also, the excuses you are using for the dumb beasts are the same ones you used the last 3 times they smashed into ships like bozos

Are you sure you live in a neighborhood with kids... Or even have your own kids?  Is it really "early onset" or just continuing?
One moment I think I am lucid, the next moment I see this:

No joking aside, there‚Äôs some truth in this.  Social media wrecks some people

There was a relatively small, but VERY loud and crazed, subset of people on social media/FinTwit that were hell bent on trashing Musk, TSLA, saying everything he did would be an immense failure.  I remember people, pre-COVID, saying TSLA was just a money laundering front and would never produce subsequent models, etc....

A lot of those people were morons or formerly successful investors who lost the plot.  Even further, many of them got absolutely SMOKED trying to short TSLA's monster run.  Yet I don't think Musk ever got over them.  And fighting them and the other haters on social media consumed him and he lost it.

Also, the drug thing is very interesting.  There are going to be books written at some point about the link between drugs and Silicon Valley.  And not raging coke heads like 80s/90s Wall Street.  But super smart nerdy dudes who become addicted to all sorts of fancy designer drugs and mind altering cocktails in an attempt to unlock their minds or play 4D chess.  Musk isn't the only one who fried himself.
