Elon Musk takes the stage at Tesla Inc.'s annual shareholder meeting Tuesday with the gap between the fervor of its fans and the doubts of its skeptics as wide as it's ever been.
The annual meeting usually functions as a chance for some of Musk's most adoring devotees to bounce ideas off the CEO and pick his brain.

An activist group has mounted a campaign against several members of the board, while an individual retail investor is pushing for someone other than Musk to be chairman.
Here are five key things to listen for when the meeting gets underway at 5:30 p.m. Eastern time/2:30 p.m. Pacific.
