  • Tesla Model 3, Chevy Bolt And Nissan Leaf: Not All Are Equal [View article]
    I was following your article 'word for word', thinking this could be one of those rare impartial SA article on TESLA, then out of the blue, you just drop in the sentence:

    "Ideally, everyone would agree on the best standard and that standard is Tesla's supercharger network"

    In 15 short words, you destroy any credibility, as you make no attempt to substantiate or justify such lofty claims.

    Please explain.

    @WulfherSS - the words "blind faith" couldn't be more apt for Tesla drivers. I could probably say the same about long investors.

  • Norwegian makes largest single Dreamliner order in Europe [View news story]
    Boeing are probably giving Norwegian them 'free of charge' given the pair of lemons received from Boeing in 2013. Norwegian had to wet lease some white tail A340s for about a year because of the patchy reliability of their debut 787s

    I keep on reading the word "epidemic" (widespread across several places) when I'm sure the author means "endemic" (specific to one location)

  • Why Tesla Quality Issues Should Concern Investors [View article]
    'I don't know why so many people want to see Tesla fail.' - the last time I checked, SA was a forum for investors not 'battery acid-heads who's only investment in Tesla was 'emotional'.

    If people criticize TSLA, it's not because the want it to fail but because the believe the stock is 'over valued'.

    First rule of investment: check in your emotions at the door.

    The key to the movie theatres' survival is to work with Netflix and not fight it. What Netflix and Amazon is a massive database of their subscribers' viewing habits. No other studio has this wealth of information, if only the theatre chains realised their future lies with the digital age and not with the 1930s business model.

  • What 'Beasts Of No Nation' Flopping In Theaters Means To Netflix [View article]
    Great article - reminds me of John Dahl's 'The Last Seduction' where Linda Fiorentino was all but guaranteed an Oscar nod but for the fact that HBO broadcast it before its cinema release.

    Forget Tesla, after reading your comment I'm going long Alcoa given the amount of aluminium hats that must be worn in the US.

  • Tesla: More Musings On Model S Reliability [View article]
    Neither Tesla, not any other 5 year old manufacturer, will reach Honda's reliability ratings in such a short time and such low volumes. The law of numbers will work against them until they have production numbers in the 100,000s every year.

  • Elon Musk: Apple hires the engineers we reject [View news story]
    Wow, given the large intersect between Apple and Tesla worshippers, what's a fan boy gonna do? Shall we worship at the shrine of Steve Jobs or bow to the idol of Elon Musk?

  • Why Tesla Motors Can Continue Beating Luxury Rivals In Europe [View article]
    "A lot live in apartments with (underground) garages or parking spots" -

    Really, are you serious? Have you ever visited a European city? On a Sunday night when people get back to the appartments for the weekend, it can take 20 mins to find a spot within walking distance of where you live, much less chance of finding one outside your house.

    Introduce a little rationale to your investing decisions and check in your emotions at the door.
