  • When To Sell [View article]
    It's true that you can't time the exact bottom, but it sure as heck isn't here at the top.

    There is a far likelier chance that they are right this time because the money spigot at the Fed is finally being turned off. If that doesn't do it, then we'll have higher interest rates next year, and that's a sure stock killer.

  • Update: Luna Gold Tanks On News The Company Will Explore Strategic Alternatives [View article]
    At these low levels there's not much downside left, and lots of upside when the price of gold returns to more reasonable levels. The author has me convinced, but I would need to sell something in order to buy.

    This is the most bullish article on Tesla I have seen from Paulo Santos. A thank you is due from the bulls, so thanks Paulo!

    I would love to be able to specify when an article gets published, but I can't. It's takes hours, sometimes even more than a day, for Seeking Alpha to get around to looking at your submission and publishing it.

    As a reader, I would also like Seeking Alpha to provide a way to filter out comments, and even articles, from people you feel detract from the Seeking alpha experience.

    The best advice I can give is to ignore keef. If nobody responds to a troll, it becomes less fun to do it.

    Why don't you move on to Amazon? Bezos is much more deserving of your criticism than Musk. If you want to stay in the auto industry, then let all those foolish Ford enthusiasts know that Ford stock is going nowhere fast.

    If you want added range instead of added top speed and acceleration, then order the 85D and not the P85D. That's why it's there is because it has the 220 hp motor front and rear.

    Kimbal Musk is a member of the board of Tesla Motors and an entrepreneur in his own right.

    Which is better, a car that warns you that you are about to crash but lets you do it anyway, or a car that actually prevents you from running into things? The answer is obvious.

    While I understand this owners complaints, I cannot sympathize that much because there is a major compensation: higher resale value in the end. When manufacturers make a practice of restyling their cars yearly it is precisely to diminish the value of the older cars and differentiate them from the latest and greatest that are still in the dealer's showroom and not in your garage yet.

    Tesla does not engage in such practices, so despite this owner's unhappiness now, he will in the end receive more money than he would have if he had spent the same amount of money on another manufacturer's car. Tesla not only doesn't change the styling to obsolete the old cars, they actually improve cars that are already in owners hands, and do it for free! Furthermore, Tesla is improving the supercharging network daily, and the owner gets access to them all, not just those that were active at the time he bought his vehicle.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Stocks Fall As Crude Continues Tumble [View article]
    Short term, yes, low or falling oil prices help Americans consume, and American businesses to profit from lower costs. Long term, though, low commodity prices in general, and oil prices in particular, will cause shortages and huge spikes in prices. In the case of oil in particular, this can shock the economy into recession. Already oil prices are less than the costs of some frackers. For the long term health of the economy, there has to be a drastic rebalancing between undervalued real assets like oil, gold and real estate and overvalued assets like stocks and bonds.

  • China/India Gold Demand: 2013 Déja Vu [View article]
    Don't start believing the propaganda just before the banksters have to finally capitulate and allow the market to rise. Gold performs an essential function in the economy: it provides an escape from the banking system for when the banking system becomes too corrupt and is about to fall under its own weight. We are very near that point now.

    It's an absolute lie that nobody can compute a value for gold. It has value as a commodity based upon the cost to explore for it and dig it out of the ground. That is very similar to book value for a stock. Then there is gold's value as a currency. That's being suppressed at the moment, but gold must eventually skyrocket. The economy must rebalance between real assets such as gold and real estate, and paper assets such as stocks and bonds. Either the Dow must come down, or gold must rise, or both, until there is parity.

  • Tesla's 'D', A Disappointment And Huge Financial Risk [View article]
    I agree. People let their expectations get completely out of hand. They forget that Tesla has only a few thousand employees, and not even a company with tens or hundreds of thousands could have satisfied their expectations.

    I respect the improvements that Fiat/Chrysler has made, but Dodge is not now and will never be a car that will compete on an equal footing with Tesla, even when Tesla reaches downmarket with the Model 3. To compare a Challenger with a Model S P85D shows just how off you are in your judgement. You take one metric, blow it all out of proportion, and declare your favorite a winner based on 3.2 = 3.2. What kind of sense does that make?

    Cold weather fears are vastly overblown. I'd be willing to bet that people do actually take their Teslas to Tahoe.
