Goldman Sachs analyst Gary Black says Tesla should dump its bitcoin in favor of buying back shares following the price pullback for TSLA. 

In a tweet the former equities chief information officer (CIO) with Goldman Sachs, suggested Tesla could spark a wave of momentum by announcing the sale of its bitcoin in favor of a stock buyback. 

Black’s tweet followed on a month-long, 28% price dip for shares in Tesla after the electric car manufacturer announced a $1.5 billion investment into bitcoin. 

Black continued, saying Tesla would generate more interest from the $8 trillion fund management sphere by announcing a stock buyback rather than pursuing investment in crypto-assets. 

Shares in Michael Saylor’s MicroStrategy have likewise suffered following the purchase of BTC. Despite falling more than 50 percent from its all-time high at the beginning of February, the company announced an additional investment of $15 million in BTC earlier in the week.
