Historic moment, Tesla has a higher market cap than Shell: USD 100 billion vs. 90 billion!
... but not anymore, after opening of the market Tesla’s market cap immediately dropped to 85 billion.
After the dust has settled (a bit) Tesla has a higher market cap than Shell: $130.9 billion vs $128.9 billion. I still remember when friends working for Shell told me that Shell would just acquire the companies that would threaten their business model. No longer a viable option!
Update: $tsla market cap has doubled since my first tweet in this thread. Now $207 billion vs $109 billion of Royal Dutch Shell. Tesla has now also passed ExxonMobil ($184 billion).
