  • Axion Power, A Deep Alpha Opportunity With A Clear Timeline [View article]
    "But it's going to happen with Axion sometime in the next two or three weeks. Axion's IPO will be underwritten by The Maxim Group and broadly distributed to institutional and individual investors. Readers who want to review the prospectus for the public offering should contact Leonard Parisi at Maxim. (lparisi@maximgrp.com)"

    It is less than 3 cents on a pre-reverse split basis now.

    Actually no. GM has a market cap of $51 billion which is way more than TSLA unless you think $20 billion is nothing. GM has gone bankrupt, makes mostly terrible vehicles with all kinds of recall problems and has wrongful death lawsuits pending. Vision? I don't see any. Lots of promises. Remember when they took millions in taxpayer dollars to develop a fuel cell vehicle? They even had a cover story on National Geographic about it. Where is this car? Money down the drain.

    TSLA is growing with a car that many in know say is the best car in the world. Not John L. Petersen of course but Consumer Reports, Car & Driver, etc., count more than he does.

    Is Tesla overvalued? Yeah, seems like it to me that is why I sold, too early I admit. However it is a good company producing a great product. GM? Not so. Axion? It produces nothing but promises. Axion is a penny stock rip off. I never invest in penny stocks. The only reason I even know about Axion is because of Petersen. I tried to figure out why this guy had it in for TSLA and Musk. Well it is not hard to figure out with his Axion connection. He actually thinks Axion and no doubt e-Power are competition for TSLA. That's a joke. I am sure Elon Musk doesn't even know they exist let alone worry about them.

    "Meanwhile those who followed the sage advice to invest in Axion will have lost in the region of 95% of their money..."

    Make that 99%!

    Yeah, the shift will occur in the the unforeseeable future. That's safe. I thought you said everything would be different in 2 months. That was 2 months ago. Now it is some unforeseen time in the future. Handy.

    My prediction and I don't do predictions: Axion will be bankrupt or absorbed into a reverse merger (ePower?) before TSLA goes to 33. Want to bet? Again, I think TSLA is overvalued and that is why I sold. However TSLA has value whereas Axion does not. You see TSLA actually produces something that people want despite what you predicted. Axion, on the other hand, produces nothing but promises.

    OK John, It has been a couple of months. What has changed? Oh, Axion is down even more! Yes, it is worth a little over 3 cents a share on a pre-reverse split basis. Meanwhile TSLA, the stock you recommended shorting at 33 and never have a good word about, is trading at 242!

    Hmm. Kind of like the arrogant and naive demagogues that recommended shorting TSLA at 33, huh?

  • Report : Drop in U.S. sales for Tesla Motors in September [View news story]
    Well to be honest Mercedes is not exactly a reliable car. Having had one I know. Not only not reliable but extremely expensive to repair. I remember in 2006 Consumer Reports said Mercedes was the least reliable car sold in the US. I think they are better now but I haven't shopped for a new car since 2006 so I am not really up on it. Yeah, I keep cars a long time. My 2006 Lexus has 42K miles on it! It's still like new.

    > the other car makers are still better at interior and overall quality

    Well that is possibly true for middle aged men that like that gaudy 19th century French bordello look. Personally I like the clean look of the Model S and so do many people. Of course not all. Taste is personal.

    Yeah, right. People buy high performance sedans like BMWs and Mercedes, etc. to go to the track. I am not sure where you get that. Just made it up I guess. You obviously haven't been to many tracks. Hey, Tesla beat the other sedans in 0-60 so of course you now say it is meaningless. It is funny how LT was defending his precious BMW saying that it could actually beat a Model S with a good driver that knew how to use launch control. 0-60 was important then.

    Wow! That is a change for a guy that said the car was worthless before he ever saw one! So now the Tesla Model S is a game changer? It is forcing the other manufacturers to go electric? Well guess what? That is exactly what Musk said he wanted to accomplish. The guy's vision goes beyond dollars which of course should be a caution to investors.

    This is the first time I have ever heard you say anything good about the car, the company or the CEO. Of course I don't read everything you write. It is too depressing.

    Don't worry. It will go lower!

    I hope your right this time around.

    >I hope your right this time around.

    When has he ever been right?

  • Is Elon Musk The New Henry Ford? [View article]
    Really you don't recall government help toward industry then? You obviously were not a history major. I think you should read a little about the big industry of the day, railroads. They had plenty of government help with the land grants that we live with today in the West with the check boarding. That is how the railroads were able to push rails from one coast to another just four years after the Civil War. An amazing feat really but not without cost financially and socially. Not to mention the whole West was settled with the help of government land grants through the Homestead Act which could be called the agricultural industry. Read about it. Government help is nothing new.

    When there is a goal to reach the government can push it and has. It certainly is nothing new. It works but it is abused too. That is without a doubt. We see it all the time here in Washington state where we produce more hydroelectricity then we use, a large portion of which is exported to everywhere from British Columbia to California. Yet there are subsidized wind farms popping up everywhere. One, the Wild Horse Wind Farm with 149 turbines produces a fraction of the electricity of a dam less than two miles away on the Columbia River even when the dam is not producing to its full capacity due to damage. 149 ugly wind mills that we don't need, or shouldn't need if our electricity stayed home.

    Well I for one am not of the sky is falling global warming crowd. In fact I am not certain that it exists, at least not to the degree that some claim having spent a lot of time on and in the polar ice pack.

    Still, I like the idea of EVs. I want us entirely off dependence on foreign oil now and forever. Pollution is real too even if you don't think global warming is and EVs do not pollute to the degree that ICE vehicles do especially where I live where the electricity comes almost entirely from renewable sources.

    I really think the hatred comes from jealousy. I see it all the time here where there are a few self-made billionaires. People hate them even though they made their money creating things not playing with stocks and such like a lot of hedge fund managers. Microsoft, Starbucks, Amazon, and even Costco are the constant targets of destain for some reason. The only reason I can think of is jealousy from people that can't stand that others have actually dome something with their lives while they have done nothing.

    Tesla and Musk have done something, something incredible. The Model S is a successful car. The comparison to to the Delorean is ludicrous. Whether Tesla is successful longterm remains to be seen. However, Musk certainly has changed the way we see what can and cannot be done with an EV. Do you know of any dissatisfied Model S owners? I have never met one. You ask them how they like the car and they can't shut up!

    Yeah, a lot of bashers on here point out the faults of the car but their opinions really don't matter since most have never even driven one and they certainly don't own one. The owners opinions matter and it is one of the most praised vehicles by owners ever. Yeah, a lot of it is cult like hype but still it is real.

    I am on record as saying that I think the stock is overvalued and indeed I sold, sold too early at 181. Still I would not bet against this company and I wish it all the best.

    There have been a couple of bashers on here urging people to short at 33 and 90. How are they doing? Who has been right and who has been wrong? It will take one hell of a dip to get it back to 33 where John L. Petersen Esq. said to short. Ever notice he has disappeared?

    "I would have thought that in these days of high unemployment and the prevalence of low-paying McDonald's sort of jobs, where big money is made from hedge funds playing with numbers and accountants dreaming up tax inversion schemes, Americans should be happy that an entrepreneur is investing in manufacturing in the US and providing well-paying jobs for the American people."

    I have often wondered that same thing. Why the hatred? Jealousy? There seems always be people that hate to see success in others and would like nothing better than to see them fall. I never understood that but it exists.

  • EVs Winning Is Not The Same As Tesla Winning [View article]
    You have to be kidding me! There was drug dealing, prostitution, anything you can name going on in the plant and the UNION protected the guilty employees. They shut the plant down because it was a disaster to both GM and Toyota. Tesla hired back many of the same employees but not the trouble makers that the union protected.
