I DID have some Tesla Stock .. but I'm not the day-trader type I guess. I dumped it with a modest gain (bought 175, it went down as low as maybe 115 and recovered to 180). After I sold it, Tesla stock continued up to about 225.

I had more stress over less than $3K invested than I had with the rest of my retirement investments combined .. not logical at all!

Everything sounds obvious in retrospect. And you need to have an appetite for the risk.
