    Yes, I guess that is true - the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results - the Tesla bulls are insane and so are the Tesla bears - each is getting the same results - the bulls get more as the bears get less -

    The question is with 33% short, how does this end?

     

    Are there "super trees"?

     

    lol

    Tesla is 33% short, but 60% owned by institutions. Short squeeze anyone?

    I agree with Joe23. Take advantage of TSLA volatility. Then take your money and run. Do not forget covered options are available weekly. This is the time to make some money before bubble bursts. Bottom line is do not be too greedy.

    A company that sells ~6000 luxury toy cars to the affluent per quarter, helped by subsidies and perks the average taxpayer has to work hard for to fund them... when will this insanity end?

    Tesla is not so easily dismissed. It will be around longer than Ford and GM.

    Parabolic is where we are in TSLA now. Like a rocket ship there is not enough fuel, despite the percentage of shorts in the current float, to propel this baby more than the end of this week. Its not how far but how long before she retraces big, 30-50% of THIS move.

     

    Advise: As a technical analist for over 59 years, you need to start buying puts that expire next week and some that even expire this week. (since the stock cannot be borrowed easily. Fundamentals are least important here. Timing is everything.

    Sorry Doc, I don't see even a hint of sputter in this rocket. It's headed for Mars.

    Parabolic is what we have here technically. Not enough rocket fuel, even with the short percentage interest at over 30%, to propel this rocket more than two more days....its not how far but HOW LONG in time this can continue. The higher and quickly she rises the more the forces of gravity come into play. Forget fundamentals...they are meaningless at this point in time.

     

    As a technical anaylist for over 59 years, I say by week's end you get an equally severe drop of 30-50% of this weeks advance. So stand back, buy puts on a scale basis as she continues to rise...starting right here..., the higher she goes on this final throw, the more puts you buy.

    Except that's what people said last May. Good luck with not understanding how Tesla disrupts industries with a superior product.

    Do you know what happens to a stock price when it is 2.6x the earnings growth of the underlying company while the price to sales ratio is over 15?

     

    Either the pace of Tesla's earnings will have to double or the stock will have to take a 50% haircut to justify the current price.

     

    A new BMW 5 Series is a nice, high quality car but, according to TSLA longs, paying $390,000 for it is justifiable.
