  • The Bizarro World Of Tesla Longs [View article]
    A couple of comments:
    The Morgan Stanley analyst raised to estimates to lofty levels. MS participated in the original IPO, they beneficially own millions of shares, and they participated in the note offering.

    You don't run out of gas. There's a station on every corner. Unlike your charging stations.

    Big difference between "70 reservations per day and rising" and the company published 50+ reservations per day.
