  • SolarCity Acquires Silevo: Is Elon Musk Green? [View article]
    Does anyone notice that the author made several grammatical errors in his article? If a person can't spell check a simple article, how much faith can we put in their research abilities when discussing a potential investment?

    SCTY is a progressive, innovative company that has a tremendous amount of growth potential. An investor should ask themselves if they believe in Elon Musk and has his other businesses done well in the past. I'll put Elon's wallet up against any naysayer any day of the week. SolarCity is a steal at these stock prices! Long SCTY.

  • Why The CEOs Of Tesla/SolarCity And BYD Need To Have A 'Giga Factory' Chat [View article]
    I really like the author's "thinking out of the box" perspective.

    Tesla and SolarCity have sooooooo much future potential of what can happen down the road it's crazy silly! I wish all these day traders would get out of both of these stocks and let some long term growth happen. These companies will be powerhouses in the near future. These young traders have lost all perspective (or just don't understand because they've never built a national/international company from scratch) of what it takes to build a solid long term company; they just judge by if a company missed or increased this analysts EPS by so many pennies each ER.

    Tesla and SolarCity will be around for a very long time - Very bullish, buy while it's cheap!

  • SolarCity: 4 Different Insiders Have Sold Shares This Month [View article]
    Thanks to the people that are commenting/educating readers that these are 10b5-1 planned sales that happened long in advance.

    It's unfortunate that everyone posting about insider selling is not educated on 10b5-1 sales. It has nothing to do with the current stock price. Think about it, wouldn't all of them sold just 45 days ago when the stock was in the 80's inside of 50's? Think about it! SCTY - $95 a share in 6 months.

  • SolarCity: No Way To Justify The High Valuation [View article]
    Article has good numbers and evaluations. The only question that is really unanswered is below.

    What is the net worth of the author?
    What is the net worth of Elon Musk?

    Let's see where SCTY is in 12 months on the numbers. Innovative companies never match up with beginning valuations.

  • SolarCity's Operating Leases Will Lead To Lots Of Future Cash [View article]
    Bravo! Excellent article. What has happened to investors buying for long term growth? It seems like everyone is a day trader these days and is looking for the quick buck. When innovative companies are in the forefront, naysayers can line up around the block to tear them down. My money is on Elon Musk and his companies that are game changers in the industry.

  • Solar City (SCTY) - The Emperor('S Cousins) Have No Clothes [View instapost]
    There are so many comments back and forth on this SCTY article. I may be a little simple and old school, but by simply doing some background checking of how correct Copperfield Research has been on past articles with other companies that will tell a lot.

    If what they have reported on other companies in a negative light (comparable to SCTY) and it turned out true, then I think Copperfield Research is definitely worth a serious listen. If what they'd said in the past has not been on the mark, then simply hitting the delete button on this article is all the time needed. This is simply about facts, not biases.

  • Don't Fall For The Hype On SolarCity [View article]
    Maybe the author can tell me if I'm off base on this. If we break this down to a 10 year old child's mentality, maybe it's easier to explain how the earnings work. The company has to pay out of their pocket for the upfront equipment expense and installation costs. This model of business entices consumers to sign up because in the past the consumer had to pay this upfront out of their pocket. Hence this new way of doing business is Bringing on many new customers. Not to mention the consumers cost for electricity is lower than it use to be solely on thr grid. So SolarCity has to sign up enough customers to to actually have the consumers contract payments exceed the outgoing cost of equipment expense. When they do this, that's called cash flow positive. The company will get to this point and when the equipment and install costs are paid for then the real cash flow will be happening. One thing I would ask anyone who is talking with uncertainty about SolarCity, have you spoken directly to any of their customers? Seems silly, but real business professionals go right to the source because if you don't have happy customers you won't be in business very long. Before I invested 6 figures in this company I did just that, I spoke to over 25 customers in all the states that SolarCity services. How many customers did the author speak to about SolarCity? SolarCity is a new way of doing business and this scares people who don't know how to think outside the box. SolarCity is for the long term investor and people that actually wish to make an impact on global warming and foreign oil dependency (nobody ever really talks about this aspect of it). Long SCTY.

  • First Solar Takes A Small Step Back, But Solar Is Still Strong [View article]
    If you go back in time, almost every company that worked to create an innovative change had 100 to 1 against them that they would fail. SolarCity is doing what Tesla is doing, it's laying down the groundwork how we do things. It's been 10 years and Telsa just reported a profitable quarter. As chairman of SolarCity, my money is on Elon Musk. Sometimes in life there is no charting available, just a roll of the dice. I bought in on day one of trading at 12.05 and I've been listening to the naysayers all the way to the bank. My bet is the stock is heading over 30 after earnings.... that's my roll of the dice. Good luck to all!

  • Another day, another gold miner gets hammered: Yamana Gold's (AUY -7.7%) Q1 results disappoint despite a pledge to cut costs by $100/oz. by midyear and $150/oz. by year-end. AUY will be tested not just by falling gold prices but also by copper prices, Cowen’s Adam Graf says, noting AUY's Q1 cash costs jumped 31% Y/Y partly on lower copper credits generated from lower copper sales volumes. [View news story]
    AUY is a solid nimble company that is MAKING money. Long AUY
