This video article features Tesla, Zillow, Facebook, Yelp, and LinkedIn.

The New York Stock Exchange recently updated its stock market margin debt data, and it looks like main street and Wall Street are both continuing to dump millions in borrowed dollars into the stock market. History shows us this is typical market behavior when you have big-name companies like Tesla Motors , Zillow , and Facebook rising more than 100% in a year, and the S&P 500 hitting all-time highs.
