Elon Musk is giving a lesson in 'Investing 101' -investor

"There is a lesson for retail investors in Elon Musk’s recent sale of TSLA shares. No matter how good a company is from time-to-time booking some profits is an important portfolio risk management strategy," said Zaman.

Musk recently made two sales after a Twitter poll last weekend. He sold $5 billion worth of stock and then $700 million, according to regulatory filings.

The stock-sale came as Tesla shares vaulted to a more than $1 trillion market cap.

Shares of Tesla are up 45 percent year-to-date.
