Just saw this today. I couldn't believe it because I saw this first on reddit like a few weeks back, where a redditor thought all of Musk's weirdly negative publicity stunts were to make Tesla less desirable in wallstreet's eyes so he could make it private. I can't find the post now, but that's interesting it turned out like this. I do agree that institutional investors have an incentive to prioritize short term over long term gain. After all, you can just sell your stocks, buy into another company and push for short term gain over and over. Maybe it is better for Tesla to be private
