Tesla’s biggest bull is arguably Ron Baron, a billionaire investor who runs Latest York’s Baron Capital and Baron Funds. After a monumental investment in Tesla stock years ago, which resulted in tons of of thousands and thousands of dollars in gains, Baron is again putting his trust and money within the hands of CEO Elon Musk’s newest enterprise: Twitter.
Baron said in an interview on Tuesday with CNBC that he was promised to make “two to 3 times” his money when he invested one other $100 million in Twitter after Musk took the corporate private following his acquisition in late 2022. His decision was influenced by several things: his portfolio’s past success based on Musk’s ventures, Musk’s marketing techniques, and a promise that principally showed the business was poorly run under previous management.
“I don’t wish to talk more about Twitter, because I’m not the expert on it yet, but he explained once we made our investment that he saw that there was a number of cost there, it was incredibly poorly run,” Baron said.
Now that Musk believes Twitter is financially more stable than ever before, based on a wide range of newly-implemented changes since his tenure as CEO began. The changes have effectively turned Twitter from a money-shedding operation to “trending to breakeven.”
Last 3 months were extremely tough, as had to save lots of Twitter from bankruptcy, while fulfilling essential Tesla & SpaceX duties. Wouldn’t wish that pain on anyone.
Twitter still has challenges, but is now trending to breakeven if we keep at it. Public support is way appreciated!

Baron never had any disbelief in Musk. “He’s the best-known man on the earth, I assume.”
Baron has at all times supported Musk’s ventures, especially Tesla and SpaceX. His personal shares have at all times remained off limits, and he has not sold. Nonetheless, his firm Baron Capital sold 1.8 million shares in March 2021, but only because “it became a really large percentage of some accounts.”

The thesis for investing his money with Twitter is comparatively the identical, and it has loads to do with the indisputable fact that Musk’s name is maybe the perfect marketing strategy money cannot buy.
Musk has never taken a standard approach when it comes to his marketing strategy. While automobile firms use thousands and thousands upon thousands and thousands of dollars of budgetary spending to advertise their vehicles through television and web advertisements, Musk’s Tesla has spent nothing on marketing. That is where Baron believes he holds a definite advantage, as Musk’s name alone does the marketing for his firms.
“Everyone else spends $1,000 to market a automobile, he spends nothing, because everyone knows Twitter. He spends nothing because everyone knows who he’s.”
