  • Is The Tesla Electric Car On A Road Called 'Overvalued'? [View article]
    Amen. My thoughts, edzacry! To piggy back on to your response, CISCO makes routers. Routers…when's the last time you went to a 'Router Show' or, went to the neighbor's to admire his shiny, new router in his driveway? We're talking cars…not just any car either. Teslas. There will be new and better models released ever year, offering more and more 'wow factor' with each release. I know from inside the board room, you can't apply a metric to that or, possibly may not even understand it. But, we're men. We like cars. Cool cars and we like people checking out our cars…That's what Tesla sells. They will get the battery cost managed and they will continue to cut the trail for the followers.

  • Google Should Buy Tesla... On One Condition [View article]
    If Google buys or jumps into bed with Tesla I will be very disappointed with Tesla and drop their stock like a hot rock. It will not benefit them, in the long run. Google has lost it's soul. Tesla is brimming with it. I would hate to see the passion and pride that got Tesla where it is put up for sale. Tesla needs to maintain their individuality and integrity. No other auto manufacturer can catch them. They build a compelling car and are doing all of the right things to control cost and make them affordable, without cheapening them. I hope they never change. They are the modern day pioneers. The innovators, the dreamers and the doers. They are Tesla.

  • Apple: Tim Cook's Brilliant Move [View article]
    Wow. Really??? Ever since Jobs passed people have been saying this, "Oh! It's the beginning of the end…" Still they outsell everyone and do it all without Google. Wonder if that's a coincidence?
    You guys need something new to beat on. Your drums are all broken.

  • Short Tesla Motors: Valuation Is Unsustainable, Premium To Peers Is Unjustified [View article]
    "To me Tesla's valuation just does not make any sense, and I believe Tesla's share price should inevitably collapse."

    Why does Tesla continue to be compared to everything from Porsche to Chevy Volt to the Mercedes Smart Car? They are none of them. I think the simplicity of Tesla is what's so confusing. To say their price 'should' collapse is a head scratcher. Is this a wish?

  • GM Just Curbed Tesla [View article]
    Agreed. GM poses as much a threat to Tesla as Solyndra did to Exxon. The battle for the electric car market is over. Tesla has it, as they should! In full disclosure, I drive a GMC Sierra Denali.

  • Tesla: An Idea, A Dream, A Concept [View article]
    Until they Unionize...then they lose control of the company and profit margins are irrelevant. I hope they never take their eye off the dream, if they can stay small and meet customer demands, that would be the greatest.

    Oh, here we go...let the unfounded attacks begin! Tesla is just too good of a Company and will now be beat to the dust like Apple...tired of these manipulators. Good luck, Tesla.

  • Shame On You, Apple [View article]
    Whole heartedly disagree. But, think what you will. I never sat around thinking, 'Hey! If do an excellent job on this project and give the customer what he/she wants, I'll attract some really great shareholders to please!' Noooo...quite the contrary. My goal is the 'customer', (and getting more of them), producing something exclusive, competitive and profitable. Period (x3). I suppose that makes me a failure in some eyes.

    'Repatriating' cash? LOL..the terms we come up with for being over taxed...If only we scrutinized the accountability and practices of the Government's financial dealings the way we do companies in this Country. We've gone mad...

  • Shame On You, Apple [View article]
    This is part of the problem:
    "The purpose of a company is to maximize shareholder value."
    Used to be that companies existed to produce products/services people wanted, needed and were willing to pay for. It was also a passion and dream, fueled by ingenuity and genius. People with the attitude that companies exist to 'please' shareholders have lost that passion and do nothing but help feed the anti-capitalist hatred that is tearing the fabric of this Nation in two. Personally, I think it's a sad testament to how far we have deteriorated. Everything is upside down these days. Nothing is real. Apple is still a company with passion and the fire in the belly to be innovators. The side benefit to that is, people love their product and the shareholders are happy.

  • Shame On You, Apple [View article]
    Amen, F & G.
    All of this 'fair share' stuff seems to be less than fair, when 'Corporations' that fit the agenda get huge tax breaks and 'stimulus'. I don't blame any company that's not receiving hand outs and favored status for doing what's best for themselves. Of course, that just leads to them being demonized and made examples of. Where's the outrage over the tax dollars wasted on GE, Solyndra and God knows how who else. The only thing wrong with Tim Cook is that he hasn't yet really stood up for Apple. It'd be nice to see him call some people on the carpet for the 'doomsday' garbage that get said about Apple, when there's no evidence to support the negativity.

  • When Elon Musk tweets, do people listen? Shares of Tesla Motors (TSLA) are still holding up even though the electric vehicle automaker's CEO tipped off a potential secondary offering of stock yesterday. Though effusive confidence by a CEO is a nice touch, some traders are warning that Tesla's stock price is looking even riskier with the latest development. Look for Elon Musk to give some enticing details on development of the Model X to help smooth over any news of a capital raise. TSLA +0.2% premarket to $37.60. [View news story]
    "Some traders' are always warning of something, because their sky is falling. Need to take some happy pills.

  • Another day, another low-cost iPhone (AAPL +1.3%) report. RBC's Amit Daryanani says his checks indicate a cheaper iPhone with a plastic case and a 4" non-retina display is on the way. He thinks it will arrive in the June/July timeframe, sell for less than $400, and (after modeling various scenarios in a spreadsheet) add $22B in sales and $5 in EPS to Apple's 2014 results. For those keeping score, RBC, Jefferies, KGI Securities, Sterne Agee, and Goldman have all predicted a cheaper iPhone will arrive, but the details they provide vary plenty. [View news story]
