Tuesday’s Factors and Events

The buying fever that began soon after Musk’s remark illustrates an occasional issue in public markets of people investing in the wrong companies by mistake.

A similar case played out in 2019 as some people bought shares of Zoom Technologies, whose ticker symbol was ZOOM but was not the trendy video-calling service Zoom Video Communications, which trades under the symbol ZM. Last year the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission stopped trading of Zoom Technologies, partly because of confusion over its connection with Zoom Video.
