Elon Musk made a splash in 2019 when he joked about Weed’s special day after Tesla’s stock hit $ 420 per share. So he could be slightly disappointed that SpaceX’s final round of stock funding fell below the mark at $ 419.99.

In 2019, Musk celebrated the great success with a cheeky tweet: “Whoa … the stock is so high, lol.”

It was far more celebratory than after his cannabis-inspired tweet in the summer of 2018, which reportedly landed him in hot water with the U.S. Securities Exchange Commission. “I’m considering taking Tesla privately for $ 420. Financing secured, ”he tweeted at the time.

Though the final round of funding for SpaceX, which closed last week, didn’t hit the $ 420 per share mark, it reached staggering highs in itself.

The company raised $ 850 million, according to CNBC, which helped bring the company’s valuation to $ 74 billion. That is well in excess of the $ 46 billion valuation made after the funding round closed last summer, CNBC reports, citing contributions from people familiar with the funding.

Although Musk didn’t tweet about the stock price this time around, he noted in a tweet this week that the deployment of 60 Starlink satellites has been confirmed. Starlink, developed by SpaceX, is high speed, low latency broadband internet.

Musk was last seen on cannabis news when he said on a recent episode of the Joe Rogan Experience that he thought CBD was “wrong” and questioned its effectiveness.
