DETROIT, Michigan - Was it a fire sale? Investors in the Tesla electric car company stemmed the bleeding a bit on Friday but it was still an abysmal few days thanks to a third fire in a Model S and earnings results many found disappointing.

Tesla's shares dropped a total of $37 on Wednesday and Thursday and were down another $7 by noon Friday before recovering to finish with a loss of $1.82; 22-million shares traded Friday, almost double the average daily volume.


In three days Tesla shareholders lost $4.7-billion, nearly 22% of their investment.

Billionaire South African CEO Elon Musk, who held about 28-million shares as of May 30, or nearly 25% of the stock, lost more than $1-billion as Tesla stock plunged from $176.81 at the close Tuesday to $137.95 on Friday.
