Netflix slides on Q2 earnings, Tesla investors worried, Ford to pay $299M

Netflix (NFLX) shares are sliding more Tuesday morning after a disappointing earnings report led the streaming site to lose $21 billion in market value Monday. Netflix says it added about 1 million fewer subscribers than expected last quarter. That’s renewing concerns its stock may be in a bubble, but Netflix’s CEO insists the “fundamentals have never been stronger.”

Just call it the $2 billion tweet. Tesla’s (TSLA) stock slid 4% Monday, wiping out $2 billion in market value after CEO Elon Musk’s Twitter attack on a diver who helped rescue a Thai soccer team out of a cave. The rescuer is now threatening legal action.
