Tesla sells $1.8B of bonds(NASDAQ:TSLA) says it raised $1.8B, $300M more than expected, at a 5.3% yield in its first traditional bond offering, marking a vote of confidencein the company and another sign of investors’ appetite for corporate debt at a time when government bonds provide meager returns.
