Tesla reaches the stratosphere

When i got interested in Tesla as a stock, it was trading in the 300USD range. It increased to about 900USD before COVID. That was amazing.

COVID came and the stock tumbled to about 500USD. That was so high yet an amazing opportunity to buy.

Because pretty soon Tesla was back at 900, then 1200. Amazing again.
Then 1500.
Then 1800!!!
By the time Tesla reached 2000USD, the stock was split in 5. Each share was transformed into 5.

So for exemple if you owned 2 Tesla shares at 2000USD each, 4000USD total, you ended up with 10 shares each worth 400USD so the same 4000USD total.

After that, the rise continued, Tesla climbed to 450 USD. Comments then validation of Tesla's entrance in the S&P500 made the stock to surge to 640USD. Just incredible.
