  • Have Tesla's Sales Hit The Skids? Probably Not [View article]
    The Miami showroom is mobbed. Getting into the car takes a while, it's always so busy with somebody checking it out. . The interior is awesome , and everybody seems thrilled.

    The misinformation to discredit this company has no limits.

  • Tesla Is A Hedge Fund's Dream Stock [View article]
    Elon buys his secondary and then talks his stock down. I have never seen anything more stupid from any CEO. If that is not stupid enough, he then goes and builds the best rated car ever and the safest car ever. Beyond stupid.

    He then pays himself a 1 dollar salary. Again stupid stupid and stupid. He then builds the most polluting car ever, this man must be stopped.

  • How Quickly Can Tesla Fix Its Problems? [View article]
    Eventually every tesla on the road will catch fire according to the smartest shorts. Ford is the only car company worthy of making cars because their p/e is 10.

  • Why Long-Range BEVs Are An Economic, Energy And Emissions Abomination [View article]
    Burning 87 million barrels per crude oil per day is way more efficient and cleaner for the environment . Cigarette smoking is even healthier than otherwise.
    If you like your plan, You can keep your plan . Period.

  • Tesla Vs. Competitors: More Pain Ahead [View article]
    ford's return of capital probably does not exceed its cost of capital, for a mature industry that is a problem. No pricing power and huge debt don't exactly help.

  • Tesla: The Business Vs. The Stock [View article]
    As production increases , margins expand even further, hence if they produce 4 times as many vehicles , profits expand more than 4 fold.
    Fixed cost are spread over a larger number of cars.

    On 80,000 cars I expect them to make 10,000 net profit per car, for a total of 800,000,000 total. At a p/e of 30 to 50 you get the market cap.

  • Tesla: Is A 25% Drop Reason To Buy? [View article]
    Daily world crude oil consumption is about 87 million barrels, at $100 per barrel that equates to $8.7 billion per day. What is a billion or two to build a battery plant, nothing in the context of the market we are dealing with. Elon may well issue shares just to raise the money, and I predict the shares will be oversubscribed .

    The mind that can invest in ford, can never understand the logic of the one that invests in Tsla's disruptive technology.

    A cat does not understand algebra.

  • Hey Bears, Is Tesla Cheap Enough Yet? [View article]
    Tesla was priced to ramp up production, where economies of scale kick in, when battery capacity is limited that acceleration comes to a halt.

    Any hint of battery capacity expansion is the end of the down cycle in the stock .

  • Tesla: I've Taken A Position [View article]
    Given the engineering skills of the space x team, this is a trivial matter to correct cost effectively . If the structure is vulnerable beyond a reasonable doubt, Elon will fix it.

    He will turn a negative into a positive . He is beyond clever, the only CEO I ever heard talk his stock down and that buys his own stock in a secondary offering.

    The shorts may be right temporarily but eventually Elon will prevail.

    Twitter,
    That wonderful company is worth already 33 billion based on an advertising
    Model. The insiders are selling out. What conviction.
