From

Tesla Inc.’s colorful and unpredictable leader Elon Musk needs to stop tweeting and engaging in erratic behavior to win back the confidence of investors, according to a longtime bullish analyst who just cut his rating on the carmaker.

“Elon is inseparable from Tesla and the brand,” Romit Shah, an analyst for Nomura Instinet, said on Bloomberg Television. “If he were to leave or take a lesser role, I think that it would be devastating for shareholders. What needs to happen is just a come-to-Jesus moment for Elon.”
