Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) is on watch after CEO Elon Musk told CNBC last night, "I think our stock price is kind of high right now, to be totally honest."

Investors "sometimes get carried away" with the stock price, Musk said. "If you care about the long term, I think the stock is a good price. If you look at the short term, it is less clear."

The CEO made similar remarks last November when the market cap was ~$15B; the valuation now is ~$36B.
