Tesla Finds Buyer In Cathie Wood As Stock Goes Haywire Amid Elon Musk's Twitter Deal, Share Sale

As shares of Tesla Inc TSLA declined for the fourth consecutive session on Wednesday, Cathie Wood-led ARK Investment Management bought over 39,000 shares of the EV maker at an estimated valuation of over $7 million.

The purchase comes as Tesla shares faced intense selling pressure this week. Shares of Tesla closed over 7% lower on Wednesday after CEO Elon Musk sold 19.5 million shares, estimated to be worth nearly $4 billion, between Nov. 4 and Nov. 8. 

The stock had plunged over 5% on Monday and nearly 3% again on Tuesday after a recall of 40,000 vehicles due to issues with electronic power assist steering.
