Stock Market Rally Signals It’s No Bear Run; Tesla CEO Elon Musk Not Liable For ‘Funding Secured’ Tweets

The stock market rally had another big week, with the Nasdaq running higher amid major news from the latest Fed outlook to the jobs report to massive earnings from Apple (AAPL), Meta Platforms (META) and more. Dow Jones futures will open on Sunday evening, along with S&P 500 futures and Nasdaq futures.


Late Friday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk was found not liable in a class action shareholder lawsuit suit over his 2018 “funding secured” tweets in August 2018, when he said he was mulling taking Tesla private. Musk also tweeted that “investor support” for a deal at $420 a share was “confirmed.” Funding was not, in fact “secured,” but Musk’s attorney argued in San Francisco federal court that, “in that moment he didn’t think.” TSLA stock rose slightly after hours Friday.

Don’t be surprised to see a market pullback after the big gains in recent weeks, with Tesla (TSLA) and Apple stock up strongly yet again. Friday may have been the start of a pullback, with (AMZN) plunging on its weak earnings and outlook. But with the uptrend showing more signs that it’s more than a bear market rally, investors can continue to gradually add exposure over time.
