  • 3 Billion Reasons Why Tesla's Gigafactory Will Be A Bloodbath [View article]
    Long time no see John. (I have not commented overall on SA because I don't have the time.)

    John you seem to know everything, but you don't have everything.

    You remind me of my finance professor in college. He gave me an "F" on my midterm, because I didn't solve his problem his way he taught in class. I did solve the problem another way, came to right answer, and shown the work. He still gave me no credit. He had a Masters in Finance, but he was no "master of finance." He reminds of you, plus he kinda looks like you too.

    I was better off listening to Elon at the June 2012 shareholder meeting (when I asked him the question about the Model S sales), then taking your advice here and there, thereafter. I had some gains, but I was better off holding the stock.

    By the way, I recently bought in again at $194, after my original buy at $24. Again, you will give me a reason to sell, but I am not going to listen anymore.

  • Morgan Stanley's Tesla Thesis Is As Flawed As They Come [View article]
    Your thesis is more important than a broker's thesis. My thesis is working well on Tesla so far.

  • Deciding When To Short Tesla - Part 4 [View article]
    Forgot about shorting stocks. If you don't like a company, don't pick up a share.

  • Tesla: When Do The Shorts Give Up? [View article]
    Buffet would rather buy Ford or GM. I will buy Tesla though. 10 years from now, Tesla will give a better return of the three.

    Here is a Warren Buffett 1999 video, you guys should watch, especially you younger investors.

    I believe he would at $250. If things go right, Tesla one day will be at $2500. (A Ten-Bagger from today) Futhermore, I bought in again at $194 and have I no problem "holding forever."

  • Tesla: When Do The Shorts Give Up? [View article]
    I don't comment much because it can lead to unproductive use of time. I rather be creating, than talking about it.

    Elon Musk is confident enough. He is a super-superior left brainer (super genius), with I believe, a superior right brain (genius). Many of your academics are more left brained than right. They might be good operators (left), but not that good philosophers (right).

    In terms of Warren Buffet, well he did say "be a partner in a good business." Long-term that is the best option. I intend to do that.

  • Tesla: When Do The Shorts Give Up? [View article]
    In their foolishness, it seems the "shorts" will never give up. I tried to write an article on it, but SA passed, so I posted it on my blog site.

    "You Bet Against Elon Musk, "Super Genius", And Lost! Twice!" - The only way you are going to win that bet is that you were a "super genius" yourself and none of the shorts are.

  • The Next Tesla Or SolarCity [View article]
    Correction: Mostly accurate on "Buy" recommendations. Much better than a typical analyst who gets paid regardless of right or wrong.

    "blatant self-promotion of your articles, not the negative tone." To set the record straight, I requested the last comment be deleted. I moved my blog postings off SA. They don't deserve my genius.

    By the way, my "Buy" recommendations were 100% accurate. Too bad your buddy John P wasn't. I recommended buying Solar City at $16 and Tesla at $35. Thank You very much.

    The Next Tesla or Solar City? I am building one myself.

    Cheap Tom. I see you want the positive, but not the negatives ones. Have fun with that. I am out of here.

  • Tesla Motors (TSLA) demonstrated its new battery-swapping technology last night at an event in California. The automaker is building the service into its supercharger network and claims drivers will be in and out of the EV stations with a fresh battery faster than drivers refilling at a gas station. [View news story]
    Elon Musk is at least 1 step ahead of the critics. That is why he is rich and his critics are not.

The investment firm thinks Tesla is creating a "new industry" with its electric vehicles boasting solid performance and muscle. [View news story]
    It is funny how analysts upgrade after it has gone up and then downgrade after it has gone down. The real analysts make the call before, not after the fact. I guess that is why anyone can be an analyst.

  • Tesla Q2 Preview: Huge Upside Potential For Results And Guidance [View article]
    Yes, Tesla should be able to meet or exceed estimates. But I am no analyst, I don't try to be. As long as their demand for your product, you stay in business.

  • Tesla At $97: How Many Cars Does It Need To Sell? [View article]
    There is too much focus on short-term price. Tesla will be able to sell every car they make. Now put a price on that.
