Selected stock price target highlights of the day

Tesla’s CEO, Elon Musk, announced on Twitter Thursday afternoon that he has hired a new CEO for the social media platform. Although Musk didn’t reveal the identity of the new hire in his tweet, The Wall Street Journal has reported that it’s NBCUniversal’s Linda Yaccarino. Musk stated she would be taking over in approximately six weeks.

Investors have been showing concerns over Musk’s dual role as CEO of Tesla and Twitter, fearing that it might distract him from his duties at Tesla. Tesla’s stock was valued at around $225 a share before Musk took over Twitter, but it ended 2022 at approximately $123, marking a significant 45% fall.

For the readers convenience, although the Twitter stock has been delisted last year, the ticker is kept open for view on AnaChart without required registration.
