  • Tesla Investors Are Ignoring What Elon Musk Really Said About BMW [View article]
    BMW is investing a significant amount of money deploying outdated technology, that BMW isn't personally managing. Tesla is directly handling the deploying and management of its Superchargers, and is building and overseeing the deployment and management of its "destination chargers"

  • The 3 Tesla Secrets [View article]
    Two interesting things I noticed. 1) Tesla has not received "real" upgrades in the past 3-6 months, even though they are guiding for much better than expected earnings. 2) Shorts are naked.

    This will not end well for anyone short who is not perfectly hedged. http://bit.ly/YVpV92

  • Tesla's Aggressive Financing: Revolutionary Or Shortsighted? [View article]
    First off, Apple does offer financing for the iPhone in many countries. Secondly , comparing a $1000 device to an $80,000 device is a bit silly. Tesla's move to offering financing was very smart. The Model S does offer tremendous long term savings, over a comprably priced ICE car and financing will help it reach the market for a $30-50,000 car. I recommend you check out my article on the real savings of the Model S. I think it will give you a greater understanding of the real cost of a model S. http://bit.ly/YwQZ1Q

  • Google's 'Project Glass': An Over-Hyped Hobby [View article]
    Google has demonstrated they are able to make a cool concept, capable of integrating with their existing services, that utilizes some forward looking software, and manufacturing techniques. They are hyping this concept as an invention that is suitable for the mass market. I don't believe it is.

    What do you base this statement on?

    @Frank

    The last 20% likely takes about as long as the first 80%, implying BMW's "fast chargers" add a maximum of 60-70 miles per hour vs 58 miles per hour for Tesla's detination chargers. Tesla's destination chargers cost ~$1000 each vs. ~$6000 for BMW's.

    There is a difference between "continuing to lose money" and investing in increasing factory production, and future product development.

    @TFTF

    Statement from Toyota:

    "There are still possibilities in certain areas of their operations especially in North America where we may find common ground," said the executive, who declined to be named. "It's not like we have severed our ties."

  • I Justify My Tesla Purchase With This Analogy [View article]
    I couldn't agree more!

    In my opinion, Tesla has the potential to head much higher.

  • Tesla May Be Undone By Window Undressing [View article]
    I agree that one of the main reasons Apple has sold off almost every day in June was window dressing. I was also thinking that one of the reasons Tesla has risen so much in the past week was window dressing, and wouldn't be surprised to see a sell off early Monday. However, if Tesla does fall due to "window undressing" I think it will be a great buying opportunity, and will jump back by the end of the week. http://bit.ly/11Rs8WH

  • Will Tesla Motors Need A Second Factory? [View article]
    We shall see. Global demand for the Model S is currently well above 21,000 per year, and is very likely to increase :)

  • A very bullish presentation from Longboard Asset Management helped Tesla (TSLA +7.4%) rally today. Calling Tesla the auto industry version of Apple (others have made that analogy in some form) due to its brand, management, and disruptive impact (among other things), Longboard predicts shares will hit $100 within 18 months and $200 within 5 years. The firm expects Tesla to grab 80% of the global EV market, praises the company's engineering skill, and expects a heavy short interest (44% of the free float is shorted) to help fuel a rally. (slides) Update: SA commenters report having seen Longboard's presentation earlier. However, it was only today that it received media coverage. [View news story]
    It's possible today was the first time a major website reported on the presentation, but I came across it on a forum about two weeks ago. http://bit.ly/10oiaYA

    That presentation was released weeks ago. Note the April 15th date on the first slide. I think the squeeze might have something to do with investors realizing they are about to miss the boat. http://bit.ly/11Rs8WH

  • Tesla Motors' Amazing Future Earnings Potential [View article]
    pat1000, I wrote this article to make a comparison between Amazon, a company priced for perfection, and Tesla, a company growing rapidly, that is barely priced for next years earnings. I don't believe any investor should buy a stock purely due to the facts and figures that reflect a companies current performance. Anyone "investing" should use projections for future earnings, other wise you are almost certain to miss every growth story. Anyone investing should look at least 1-2 years into the future. Tesla is a hyper growth story, and thus requires looking a bit further ahead.

  • Tesla Motors' Amazing Future Earnings Potential [View article]
    The thesis of my article on Amazon is that everyone who owns the stock is aware of the fact that Amazon is not currently profitable, and is willing to price in the future, when they expect it will be. In the case of Amazon, I do not feel a long position is a wise idea, as a lot of things are priced in. Amazon falling in the "near term" will not be because the stock is a bubble. Were Tesla priced like Amazon, with the future "priced in" ahead of time, I believe the stock would be much higher.
