  • Maybe Tesla can cut some costs here and use the blood that is being let right now for their 'new red color' instead of paint...

  • Maybe nobody will sell and the shorts will see their dreams evaporate, my plan is to hold and buy - use your own blood

  • If it gets down below 32$ I'll probably take a small position honestly. Musk has all but guaranteed that Q1 will be profitable which should send shares back to high $30's.

  • Meh, I'm long on TSLA since $25. Definitely a Buy and Hold, but that doesn't stop me from selling 1/3 of my portfolio at the tops or after good news creates gains, and then buy back in once the shorts and skeptics bring the stock down after getting a hold of some "bad" news. At this rate, the profit being make from the volatility will be enough to cover the other initial 2/3 investment. Keep the swings coming! :)

  • The only thing Tesla has going for it is Musk. the valuation per car sold its totally nuts and the company will never grow into its valuation. Is it just me or has Musk disappointed pretty much every quarter?

     

    I broke my one rule last week and doubled down on a short that turned the wrong way on me (my feb 16 options died a slow painful death) bought some march 16 - looks like i was right, just wish it had happened sooner. it will probably stop around 29-30 which will return 250%.. good day...

  • Sell Sell Sell!!! Let me buy lower!!! I wanted to buy yesterday but I'm lucky my IRA didn't let me use cash just transferred the day before. I'm going to make a fortune on this stock when it goes up 500%. Not a question of if, but when. When the price goes down on the next model, who isn't going to want a car that is faster, more responsive, and much more efficient than an ICE?
