  • Chinese media attacks Starbucks over prices [View news story]
    only old or stupid ppl still watch/read and give a crap about any form of official media in china, especially CCTV. starbucks' customers in china are mostly the younger generation (based on my experiences most customers are under 40). yes its way overpriced in china but they dont rly care, CCTV wont change their mind either

  • Investors Are Buying A Pig In A Poke With Tesla Motors [View article]
    Yes i3 is a joke regardless of its price. Here is my reasoning.
    We are at the toddler stage of EVs. This is the time to attract early adopters. Wealthy people will become early adopters way more likely than an average income person for a lot of reasons (better critical thinking, strategic and future vision, financial freedom). Do you think they want an average i3 or a great tesla? Theres no disputing the quality difference of the two. Additionally, these people dont care about getting the best bang for their bucks. So probably a model S/X. So first big problem with BMW is either they cant produce a good EV yet and/or they are just going in the wrong direction.
    What happens next will be a lot of model S/X gets on the street but not many i3's. Moreover, tesla cars will get way better reviews while i3's will just get mediocre reviews. This will convert to a reputation lead for tesla.
    So until some major player makes a stunning entry into this market I shall remain bullish on tesla long term.
    Anyways, good luck trading.

    i3 was a joke, as a potential challenger to tesla from a high-end german manufacturer. That just shows the technological lead tesla has on other "big players". Couple years later you are gonna be facepalming if you don't cover soon (by next quarter).
    Good luck trading.
