I hate Tesla stock.

Tesla embodies the contradiction to every investing rule I follow.

It has no basis in Value Investing or Dividend Investing.

Now you may be thinking ‘binary trading scam?’ isn’t that going a bit far?

My portfolio was a mess! With many of my early investing mistakes still present in my portfolio I finally decided to bite the bullet.

I CLEANED UP!
