Tesla Inc. shares rebounded from last week’s U.S. lawsuit over Elon Musk’s take-private tweets, as a settlement ensured the billionaire will keep calling the shots at the carmaker he’s said is on the verge of profitability.

Under the agreement with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Musk and the company each will pay a $20 million penalty, and Musk will be barred from serving as chairman for at least three years. The agency backed off from ousting him as chief executive officer.
