YouTuber Earns Praise After Questioning Elon Musk During Tesla Earnings Call

Why Elon Musk and Warren Buffett Are Suddenly Trolling Each Other Over See's Candies

Billionaire investor Warren Buffett said Monday he respects the efforts of Elon Musk , head of electric auto maker Tesla (TSLA).

Is Elon Musk Really Starting A Candy Company? The term "moat" in the investment parlance was established by Buffett.

So whether or not Musk actually intends to start a candy company, the key is to never underestimate the man's random claims.

One Twitter user also urged him to "just make Westworld real" because as the user claims, nobody wants candy, electric cars or rockets but Musk swiftly shut him down. In a series of tweets, Musk announced his decision and made it clear that he is serious about it.

Last week, CEO Elon Musk insisted repeatedly that Tesla doesn't need to raise more cash.

Warren Buffett is the proud owner of See's Candy, which is touted as a prime example of successful moat-use.

Buffett, whose Berkshire Hathaway owns See's sweets, was responding to a shareholder's question about whether he agreed with Musk's views about so-called economic "moats," a term Buffett coined in a 1999 Fortune article referring to a company's wide competitive advantages. Moats, a competitive buffer between one's business and the rest of the competition, have historically been used by Warren Buffet. Musk himself said Tesla would be evaluating the positions of contractors that work with Tesla, but aren't officially Tesla employees, when he spoke on the company's first-quarter conference call last week. The legendary investor said that "Elon may turn things upside down in some areas". It's hard to determine what his actual plans are, as Musk has proven to be quite unpredictable in the past.

As for whether the investing duo will respond to Musk, it's unlikely they even took notice of his tweets: While Buffett has a Twitter account, he has tweeted exactly nine times, and not since the 2016 Berkshire Hathaway meeting two years ago.

However, while all that has been largely technology related, now Musk has taken interest in the food industry.
