Stock commentary site Tip Ranks looked at trades made by insiders in the a year ago and found Tesla CEO Elon Musk to be top dog on its leaderboard for biggest gains among most volatile trades in 2016, topping business magnate and investor Carl Icahn.

Writing back to Bria via her father on Twitter, Musk wrote, "Thank you for the lovely letter".

Her letter was for a school project, but unlike many letters to celebrities or other figures children admire, it bore fruit.

Responding to a letter allegedly written by a 5th-grade child, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has agreed to hold a competition for fan-made commercials. The victor would have their commercial aired, she wrote, and also receive some other perks like a year of free supercharging or a special Model 3 Easter Egg.

Right off the bat, Musk's tweet seemed overly optimistic, if not downright absurd. "That sounds like a great idea", he added.

Lent is a time to prepare for Easter
Ash Wednesday is the traditional start of the Lenten season, that includes the 40 days that lead up to Easter Sunday. The words spoken during the imposition of the ashes are "Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return".

Musk brags that the company has so far spent nothing on advertising - in direct contrast to the millions spent by traditional automakers to move customers into their cars and out of their dealership lots. Earlier, we had been faced with the glaring problem that solar panels atop the vehicles don't generate enough electricity to power much of anything.

Musk tries to make an "us vs them" appeal to squash support for a unionized Tesla, something that could decimate the company's ability to mass produce its luxury-priced electric vehicles. One features a caveman struggling to make the first automobile - before discovering the revolutionary Model S.

Bria said she wants to be a politician when she grows up and spread the word about clean energy. I hope that when I am older I can drive a Tesla.

Musk had also refuted allegations from a Tesla factory worker who said that long hours had forced most of his team to go on medical leave about the same time.

"She was pretty shocked", her dad Steven Loveday told Fortune.
