The battle over Tesla Motors (TSLA -0.5%) hums right along with analysis seemingly strong on both sides of the argument. Deutsche Bank highlights the pie-in-the-sky worries on the name by calling out 78% of its estimate for TSLA's net present value uses cash flows from 2020 and beyond, while Jefferies notes even modest forecasts for growth in the EV market point to steady revenue for Tesla in the future. Shares have settled into a narrow trading range over the last few weeks with visibility on Tesla's production numbers for 2013 still cloudy.

    Vico Confino says both naysayers and yeasayers may be right about EV's and especially about Tesla.
    Just imagine for a moment that hysterical drilling for oil in the USA hits a 100 million barrel well ( or higher).
    How do the numbers crunchers realign their forecast for the EV's
    Just curious.

    Considering the amount I have invested in TSLA, whatever happens to the company the 'boom and bust' stock price is worth it in entertainment! And working in technology over the past 50 years taught me it is foolish to predict something cannot be done based on current knowledge. The PBS program NOVA offers many examples of cutting edge technologies that will make the 'impossible' cheap to buy later on (cell phones and iPads were impossible not too long ago). And if Elon Musk is half the courageous visionary has has been so far then my TSLA investment will pay off.
