  • Something Rotten With Tesla? Doubtful  [View article]
    Just curious, and how is that any different than Chevrolet's selling, or whatever the correct term is, to a Chevrolet dealership? Of course we don't want to call the Denmark subsidiary a dealership, but for one minute if it functions like a dealership then it is absurd to think that Tesla would not leverage it just as Chevrolet leverages it's dealerships.

    Clearly the Denmark tax czar, on hindsight have you, sees no problem with teslas registrations and clearly no one on this SA board, unless you're delirious, has any clue what he based his conclusion upon. Nonetheless, he deems it legal therefore no conspiracy.

    And why pray tell, have there not been any retractions w/r to the baseless tax evasion comments, are we really that childish on SA that we can't admit when we make mistakes or baseless accusations!?

    Lastly as a shareholder kudoes to management for anticipating the tax changes in Denmark and getting cars in the channel. Kudos to management for having the balls to make a decision, albeit controversial one, given the social economic changes happening in Denmark. Indeed, this could be a blackeye as in increasing inventory, or it could be a major coup as in some lessor leveraging the situation. Either way now it's been shown to be perfectly legal, end of that straw argument.

  • Disruption in the auto industry from east to west  [View news story]
    See mypost above I give at tungle7 some assistance, but the point is you are absolutely correct on the 200+ mile range.

    Even if you consider MPGe there are a few north of 110, like the Chevy Spark oreGolf, but none in the same performance class as the Model S, the i8 although sexy only comes in at 15 miles and 76mpge

    But is MPGe a good comparison, it's derived by an EPA fixed formula for cost per kWh and gallon of gas.it appears to me MPGe is only useful when looking at sticker prices because globally, let alone in the USA your costs WILL vary!?

    Er... You didn't read his comment very well, what 200+ range car exists today? Only two Model X and S. Sure the Bolt has a mule out there, but I'm quite sure WFA meant production cars. IF you charge a Volt every night you may get whatever but range on a single charge is only 53, the i3 and B-class may get you 90, the eTron (newest comp?) 31, but let's get real the only EV that even came close was the RAV4 at 92, but it had a Tesla drivetrain!

    So read better or do your own DD

    RoseNose, what are your thoughts about a prolonged bear market, or cantankerous like Finici supposes?

    I've thought of those questions too, here's my thoughts, am I in the ballpark? I'm sure I'm oversimplifying.

    Letting go of 25-50% of a position to reinvest ... Closed community of stocks? The letting go is based upon the High/Low window yes? Isn't the answer about the dividend income? So if a stock in the portfolio meets the income requirements and the High/Low rules of thumb then it's a candidate otherwise there are other income producing stocks to choose from that are not at their 52 week high.

    Cantankerous bear market ... Yah, since the buy window is always below a 52 week high there's always room to go up, and the 52 week low limits the loss, and given the "high dividend yield" there's always the potential to break even.

    I don't think you were getting grief Bikerguy, and I agree with 209, there's nothing wrong in asking the question.

    For what it's worth, know that I'm satisfied with RS answer, "I do own most of the stocks myself ( I cant own everything all the time!)"! Which makes him even more real and genuine to me, because isn't that the answer we should all have? The difference is the model portfolios I'm dancing with on Morningstar.com are simply that ... on Morningstar. RS displays his for us to see and I am just like him, 'I own most of the stocks myself'. But in my case sometimes it's a couple of years after working the bugs out of my "system" that I jump in, and others whoa only free cash holds me back. :)

    Actually it's about 20% of my portfolio. But that's because I gave up on selling and reallocating and decided to just let it ride.

    Did you really read those paragraphs? That was exactly the authors point that the coming collapse of China is not going to happen the day they're actually represents a rising consumer class look again at figure one.

    At the author, your "figure one" is an amazing and compelling chart. It depicts a China that folks in the west refuse to visualize. In essence China the Consumer has awakened. The old memes will take awhile to die, some of that is prejudice and some is just an inability to balance a reality of the shrinking lower class and caste, with the rise in the middle class. Sounds vaguely familiar!?

  • Tesla: Why Model S Reliability Will Have Negligible Impact On Sales And Earnings  [View article]
    Excellent observation Mark! And this is why those who think the impact is going to be substantial are wrong they don't understand what the real "drive train" issue is. Many commenters keep referring to the engine as analogous, that's just wrong thinking.

    Great article, long TSLA
