Tesla’s shares still fall by 11%, touching -70% in 2022

Last December 15, Elon Musk sold $3.4 billion worth of Tesla stock, causing a significant drop in the stock market. A week later, on the 22nd, the billionaire promised not to sell shares for at least 18-24 months. But he doesn’t seem to have stopped the bleeding yet.
