Welcome back to another clip of Market Mondays! In this clip, hosts Rashad Bilal, Troy Millings, and Ian Dunlap dive deep into Elon Musk's impressive portfolio and discuss the future potential of his various companies.

The conversation kicks off with an intriguing look at SpaceX, which is considering selling shares at a staggering $200 billion valuation. Rashad Bilal poses two essential questions: What are Ian Dunlap's thoughts on this valuation, and how will SpaceX impact Tesla? Which of these companies should investors focus on if given the chance?

Ian Dunlap sheds light on why he believes SpaceX and Starlink are the standout players in the Musk empire. He goes on to suggest that Elon Musk should consider appointing a CEO for Tesla and focusing his efforts on SpaceX and Starlink. Does this mean a 30% bump for Tesla? Ian thinks not, noting that relying on another company to lift Tesla's value isn't a sustainable strategy.

Troy Millings adds historical context by recalling the impact of Musk's acquisition of Twitter (now X) on Tesla. How did the capital and focus shift affect Tesla? Troy believes the same questions of time, focus, and energy will apply to SpaceX.

Rashad Bilal then offers a power ranking of Elon Musk's companies for the next decade:

1. Neuralink

2. Starlink

3. SpaceX

4. Twitter (X)

5. Tesla

Why is Tesla ranked so low in Rashad's view? He argues that while Tesla was once synonymous with electric cars, the competition has caught up. What makes Tesla special in a market now flooded with electric vehicles from various manufacturers?

Troy raises an important point about the role Tesla has played as a funding arm for Musk's other ventures. Can Elon continue to fund his ambitious projects without liquidating Tesla shares? Rashad believes Musk's ability to raise capital is unparalleled, regardless of Tesla's performance, thanks to his reputation and connections worldwide.

As the discussion continues, the hosts explore the broader implications of Musk's diverse ventures, including the groundbreaking potential of Neuralink and the essential services provided by Starlink.
