Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) CEO Elon Musk was quick to try and refute any share price movement coming from his end.

"Some people seem to think I tweet to affect share price. This is false. A brief rise in $TSLA stock obviously does no good for Tesla or me," Musk tweeted at 2:13 p.m. ET. "Neither I nor the company are selling shares. Even if we were, I wouldn't do this. It would be wrong. Our long term results are what matter."

Musk tweeted on Sunday that a press conference is scheduled for this Thursday to announce an end to end range anxiety.
