Tesla Shares Rise Again After Model 3 Reservations Pass 200,000

Shares of Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) were trading higher by more than 4 percent early Friday morning.

Investors and traders appear to be bullish on the stock following encouraging tweets by Tesla's CEO, Elon Musk.

Musk tweeted over the weekend that Tesla received 276,000 Model 3 pre-orders. Each pre-order comes with a fully refundable $1,000 deposit – implying the company has essentially secured a $276 million interest free loan from its anxious buyers.
