    If you were already short on TSLA, then this news doesn't do anything to change your position. Taking on more debt should cause the stock to tank faster, right?

    If you were short on SCTY, I could see this being terrible news. Short term, it props up the stock. Long term, TSLA + SCTY would take longer to fail than SCTY alone. Worst case scenario, TSLA meets goals for Model 3 and your SCTY short position is really going to hurt.

    DIsclosure: I am long TSLA, no position on SCTY.
