It’s starting to look like Mark Belling was a genius for shorting Tesla stock.
Former US Vice President Al Gore could be a good fit to replace Elon Musk as chairman, according to one longtime tech analyst.
Gene Munster, venture capitalist at Loup Ventures, said Gore would be able to use the role to get Musk, who is still CEO of Tesla, in line.
Musk agreed to resign as Tesla chairman within 45 days as part of his settlement with the SEC.
Munster said Gore would be a worthwhile candidate as he has served on Apple’s board of directors since 2003 and is a prominent figure in the alternative energy industry.
‘The open board chairperson role creates an opportunity for Tesla to potentially put someone in place that is capable of influencing Musk and helping Tesla reach sustainability,’ said Munster, who is a noted Tesla bull.
