Laundry Room Chronicles: Talking Tesla

My weekly Reuters Insider spot this week is about Tesla Motors, which closed its first day of trading up over 40% to $23.94 per share (it was only at around $18 per share when we filmed).

Only regret on below video is that I didn’t bring up A123 Systems when asked about Tesla’s battery building plans. That company also had a $2 billion+ market cap post-IPO (and plenty of gov’t backing), but has since tumbled more than 50 percent. Anyway, happy viewing:
