    Thanks for reading the article RS. You are correct in assuming they're using their cash for acquisitions. Before this latest acquisition, they were buying back shares. Now, they have stopped that practice in order to make the Modelo purchase.

    Thanks again,
    Gerry

    no jensen, it is not. I stand by what I say in the article and if you would take time to read some of my replies to various posts, you would realize that.

    marshgre, I responded to the GM bailout in several posts, but I'll do it one more time. I was dead set against it. The same goes for the government bailouof Ford, Chrysler or any other mismanaged business.

    Marshgre, read the first statement in your post. I mean really read it
    and tell me what sense it makes. Money owed the government in taxes and not paid is money that has to be made up somewhere. I don't know why this is so hard for some people to understand.

    bresla, I've been hearing your doom and gloom for over forty years. It's the same old rant, spend the money now or "Mother Earth" will perish. How many billions have we squandered, brelsa? Read some of the books written two generations ago warning us of the same thing you just posted. Read them and then tell me this money wouldn't have been better spent feeding and clothing the poor. Your nobility is misplaced, brelsa. Mother Earth can take care of herself, why don't you worry about your fellow man instead.

    The reason that I'm including politics is this discussion is because the nature of most of these posts dictates it.

    Thank you for that input, Steve, It makes one wonder just what a person is buying when he purchases Tesla stock, doesn't it?

    Billiardman, I'm suggesting nothing of the sort. In fact, I'll make you and all the other Tesla car buyers a deal. Take the money you won't be sending to Uncle Sam because of your tax credit and donate it to a worthy charity. How's that sound? You do that and I'll retract my article. I'll eat some crow if hungry kids can eat decent food. How about everyone? Show me some more of that noble altruism that is so evident in this thread.

    Exactly, Wall Street, Remember your Shakespeare? More specifically your Hamlet? "The lady doth protest too much, methinks." You get my point, and thanks for covering my back.

    futurecartsla, The Model S is a quite a piece of engineering, there is no doubt about that. What I don't understand about your post is your statement, "top line valuation versus market cap." Take any company with a market cap of $5 billion, any company that has earnings and perhaps pays dividends. The market assigns that company a value based on its earnings. The market gives it a market cap based on tangible earnings. With Tesla, the market cap is arrived at through pure speculation of the company's future. There's nothing concrete to justify a $5 billion market cap. It's valuation through speculation, nothing more. Next week the stock may go to $100 a share for there's always a greater fool. Just remember futurecarsla, in the short term the market is a voting machine and in the long term it's a weighing machine.

    Glad you liked it, Bucknfl. A juicy dividend makes the wait for share price appreciation rather enjoyable, doesn't it? Thanks for the comment.

    AjitMD, Have you ever heard of Everet Dirksen. He was a politician who once said about federal spending, "A billion here, a billion there, pretty soon you're talking about some real money." It all adds up, Ajit, no matter how big or small the amount. This country can't afford it anymore.

    I was dead set against the bailout of GM. That investment is still in the red. Ford and Chrysler? Heck, let's talk about all the corporations that get government goodies.

    You're absolutely right, the Iraq war was primarily about the free flow of oil. Why do you think so many nations signed on?

    Perhaps if we would've let Saddam grind Kuwait under his boot and jack up the price of oil at his whim, we would all be driving EVs today. Who would you rail at then, the evil electric utilities?
