Tesla To Raise A Breezy $5B
Tesla announced in an SEC filing today that it’s looking to raise $5B in a stock offering, just one day after its market cap hit $600B.
This will be the second time in the past three months that the soon-to-be S&P 500 member has done a share sale. In September, the company raised $5B to ease future debt pressure.
This comes as Tesla’s finance chief, Zachary Kirkhorn, said that he expects CapEx to be between $2-$2.5B for each of the next two years.
We’re just not sure why Elon didn’t just open his wallet for this one — he gained almost $10B in net worth yesterday.
Also, Elon confirmed his move to the Lone Star State.
The Game Is Cancelled 😐
Today revealed a competitor that neither Michigan nor Ohio State could beat — Covid-19.
Michigan announced earlier that it cancelled the 117th edition of “The Game” due to Covid cases in their program.
This cancellation means that Michigan will officially go more than 10 years without beating their rival. 🤣
Ohio State’s football twitter account had the best take on the day with this one word tweet. 🙊
Apple Takes Headphones To The Max
Apple revealed its new Airpods Max headphones this morning. The beautifully-modified Beats will cost $549. Classic Apple.

Only Apple could sell headphones for the same price as a PS5. 😉
Even Everest Is Growing 📈
Mount Everest got taller. 🏔️
On Tuesday China and Nepal agreed on a new measurement for the legendary mountain — 29,031.7 ft.
Everest’s height has been debated for years. China’s last measurement was 15 feet off, and Nepal’s was 2.8 feet too short.
President of the Nepal Mountaineering Association, Santa Bir Lama, said:
This is a milestone in mountaineering history which will finally end the debate over the height and now the world will have one number.
Not that we can hike it yet, though. S/o 2020.
