  • Tesla: Something Is Rotten In The State Of Denmark [View article]
    It clearly shows how desperate they are to sell their cars. They have exhausted the backlog for model S and now it turns out sales increases are hard to come by, just like GM or Ford.

  • Tesla Motors downgraded by CLSA on short-term concerns [View news story]
    Sure it's a great car. But at what price? Despite the fact they are selling it at a loss, few people can afford a $80000 car. These billionaires talk about it like it's pocket change. Only to them!

  • Kandi Delivers A Sweet Year But Stock Goes 'Sour', Tesla Shocks On Downside, But That's 'OK'? [View article]
    What about ownership rights as a shareholder in a Chinese company? The Puda Coal CEO sold the whole company and kept the money to himself, and the American shareholders could do nothing.

  • The Oracle Of Bogota: Why I'm Bullish On Grupo Aval [View article]
    How can you publish and article like this without talking about valuation? Whether it's a buy or not depends on valuation. What is the P/E, P/B etc.?

  • Does Tesla Motors have a China problem? [View news story]
    In Germany, Europe's largest market, Tesla sold 57 cars in January, down from 165 in December. In Norway, sales were also down 47%. So if China and Europe are very weak, why would the US be strong?
    Musk expected 800 sales a month in Germany for 2014. Telsa sold about that much for all of 2014.
    He lives in a fantasy world, together with his cultish followers.

  • How The Tesla Investment Case Had To Suddenly Change [View article]
    Tesla sales in Germany January 2015: 57 (fifty-seven) versus 165 in Dec. 2014. The goal was sales of 10000 per year. Norway is also down by half. So China and Europe is terrible, why would the US be great?
    Europe has very high gas prices due to taxes, so electrics should be relatively more popular there. Instead, they are rapidly losing market share plus you have may new entrants.
    All we know about the US is that Musk is not talking, so draw your own conclusions.

  • How Would A Portfolio Based On The Most Followed SA Stocks Have Performed In 2014? [View article]
    If you look at smaller cap stocks, the underperformance becomes much more dramatic. CUR was hyped again and again when it was much higher. Tons of smaller oil stocks recommended here are down 50 to 60 %. GILD was seemingly everybody's favorite and vastly underperformed the last few months. There is only one solution: invest only in index funds.
    Why did SA remove the performance records of all authors? Because it is terrible!
    The market price reflects the consensus of what the fair value is. The authors who disagree with that are mostly wrong, since the consensus combines the greatest wisdom of all market participants. It's the same is science. The consensus is usually right, the few crackpots who disagree and have their own pet theories are usually wrong.

  • Good Riddance To QE: It Was Just Plain Financial Fraud [View article]
    QE has saved the government hundreds of billions of $, as the profit of the FED ( 80 billion a year) is remitted to the government.

  • Good Riddance To QE: It Was Just Plain Financial Fraud [View article]
    "In the more wholesome time before the FED" we had one depression after another, as the financial system was on autopilot, without anybody at the steering wheel.
    That is the situation Mr. Stockman and the rest of the doom and gloom crowd wants to go back to. These people are usually gold bugs and are having their just desserts handed to them.
    You would think it dawns on them that their theories are wrong, with the collapsing gold and silver price, not the collapsing dollar. But no, they never learn.

  • Ackman Bets On $100+ For Fannie And Freddie - New All-Time Highs [View article]
    FNMA borrows huge amounts with an implied federal guarantee, which means lower interest rates. If the government stops giving this guarantee for free and charges retroactively say 60 basis points for the guarantee for all these years, shareholders will be wiped out.

  • Ackman Bets On $100+ For Fannie And Freddie - New All-Time Highs [View article]
    The bear case says if the government charges 60 basis points guarantee fee for all debt issued by FNMA with the implicit government guarantee, there will be nothing left for shareholders. Because without the government guarantee the interest rate would be much higher.
