to raise more than 1 billion dollars


Within minutes after teasing his new product line on Twitter, the Tesla stock soared 4%, adding an estimated $900 million to Tesla’s stock’s value.

While the tweet was vague, analysts at Global Equities Research speculated that the product is likely Tesla’s new stationary home battery which could enable high-speed car-charging at home, storing up to around 2.5 days' worth of a typical home's energy use from solar panels or providing homeowners with an estimated 10 days of power.

While the stock jump doesn’t necessarily benefit Musk directly, it must still feel pretty good to raise his company’s value tremendously without breaking a sweat.
