  • SolarCity Poised To Benefit From Tesla Gigafactory [View article]
    So, put the solar panels on poles above the trees. We are currently driving all over Kauai and seeing panels on poles, cell towers and roofs everywhere. But, you will say, "That's Hawaii." Ok, then we will be in Vermont next and friends and neighbors there are converting to solar daily (and saving a ton of money on energy bills.)!

  • Apple - The Most Important Variable [View article]
    I am not a certified stock analyst. I am just a grandmother who bought aapl back in the 90s for $12 a share. While I do agree somewhat with the author BJFlicks comes closest to
    my own assumptions about this stock. My stock is paying for the education of my four grandchildren as I speak. Obviously, I am grateful. Putting it mildly, I will not be selling my aapl stock anytime soon. I have stayed with them through thick and thin and plan to continue staying with them even when so many stock analysts caution us to sell. Somehow I don't mind paying my share of the capitol gains tax.

    Gee, I don't know where you were when AAPL was $22, however,

  • GM CEO Dan Akerson has created a small team to study Tesla (TSLA) and the potential threat it poses to the auto giant. Vice chairman Steve Girsky: "[Akerson] thinks Tesla could be a big disrupter if we’re not careful ... History is littered with big companies that ignored innovation that was coming their way." Akerson has been busy trying to speed up the pace at GM implements new technologies, and promised in March GM would launch an EV with a 200-mile range. Meanwhile, Tesla is working on lowering charging times at its supercharging stations to 5-10 minutes from 20. CTO J.B. Straubel cautions "it’s not going to happen in a year from now." [View news story]
    Together we have lived 150 years on the planet and one recycling bin at a time we are trying to insure that is sustainable for our children and their children, etc. In March we decided that it was time to replace our 2004 Prius so we went to the dealership, drove one and almost signed the contract. We thought, "The Prius is okay but, just for fun, why don't we test drive a Tesla first." We did and we fell in love with it.
    Ordered one on the spot with delivery promised two to four months in the future. That was okay. We went on vacation.

    A couple of days later.....first week in April, 2013, we decided to buy a little TSLA stock. And, a few days later we bought a little more, etc.

    While we were still traveling we were notified our car was ready for delivery. Two days after we flew home we picked it up in Bellevue.
    That was just six weeks after the order was placed!

    During that 150 years on this planet we have driven, Fords, Oldsmobiles, Cadillacs, Porches, BMWs, Audis, Toyotas, Hondas,
    etc., etc., Listen to me carefully now. Nothing compares to the
    Tesla S! The entire buying experience was elegant and easy. But, the care itself is pure levitation!!!!!!!

    P.S. On the afternoon we picked up our Tesla we could have sold our
    stock and paid for the car in cash at twice the price it cost.
    Our kids and grand kids are looking forward to driving it during their next visit. Grammy and Gramp
