Tesla five-year credit default swap hits highest price ever


NEW YORK (Reuters) – Tesla’s (TSLA.O) 5-year credit default swap TSLA5YUSAX=MG hit its highest price ever on Friday, the morning after it was announced that the Securities and Exchange Commission was suing the company’s Chief Executive Elon Musk and pushing for his ouster.

It cost $299.1 to insure $1 million of the electric carmaker’s debt. That suggests credit investors are becoming increasingly concerned about the prospect of a default.
