It happens far too often: a game-changing company comes on the scene, has a massive run in its share price, makes a ton of people a ton of money, and becomes a media darling with constant, breathless stories about this exciting new widget maker.
But then the sideliners who sat with their hands in their pockets begin to grumble about how “the stock is overbought”, “it’s going to crash,” “the founder is a fraud,” “this company is a scam,” etc. No skin in the game, just bitter about not participating. It seems in recent years, Tesla (and it’s founder Elon Musk) has been the poster child for this phenomenon.
Ignore the noise, follow the price, profit.
