(Los Angeles)

Another tumultuous week for Tesla is in the books, but for the first time in a while, it looks the company may be headed in a positive direction. Last week, the SEC sued Elon Musk for fraud based on his tweets about taking the company private, which sent the stock plunging. However, on Saturday, it was announced that Musk had reached a settlement with the regulator, agreeing to give up his chairmanship of the board, in addition to a $20m fine, but remaining CEO. This news sent the stock soaring in pre-market trading.

FINSUM: This seems like a better operational and governance structure for Tesla and we hope it will prove a positive development.

Tesla investors got some grim news yesterday (unless you are the group hoping for Musk’s departure). That news is that the SEC is suing Elon Musk for fraud and is seeking to have him removed as the leader of Tesla. The suit seeks to have Musk banned from serving as an officer or director of a public company. The basis for the suit is the series of tweets Musk made regarding taking the company private, which the SEC says were “false and misleading statements”.

FINSUM: This is a pretty serious move from the SEC, made worse by news out today that Musk chose the price of $420 as a marijuana reference to impress his girlfriend.

(New York)

Amazon has announced the launch of a new store in New York city. So far, most of Amazon’s brick and mortar aspirations have been unfulfilled, with only a handful of physical stores across the country. However, the company will launch a new store in New York that will feature the top-ranked and trending items from its website. The company is seeking to offer the items New Yorkers buy most directly in its store. Everything in the store will be a 4-star or higher item. The store is called 4-star and will launch in the SoHo neighborhood of Manhattan today.

FINSUM: We think this is an excellent theme for Amazon stores and could be a concept for the company to launch many more physical outlets across the country.
