  • Alibaba: Are The Risks Worth The Rewards? [View article]
    Nothing wrong with paper money if its backed by gold, or anything of real value. Instead of being printed out of thin air by central banks.

  • Update: Tesla's Nevada Gigafactory Announcement Squeezes The Shorts With New Highs [View article]
    Who will the big ICE auto companies be buying batteries from for their electric versions. Tesla will be making more batteries than all the battery companies put together - the same companies who will soon no longer being able to supply Tesla's growing battery needs - never mind all EV makers.

    Maybe, but the strong possibility that these "way in the future profits" will be sky high, more than makes up for the fact that they will be "way in the future". How far into the future is that anyway? 10 years, 20 years?

    Companies can be in debt and still be profitable - as long as they are able to repay the monthly instalments on their loans every month with money to spare / re-invest afterwards. When companies cannot afford to pay the instalments on their debt, or if their creditors decide to call in there loans all at once - THAT is when they are no longer profitable. Almost all companies have debts as profits are not always high enough in the short term to make big investments, or expansion possible.

  • For Tesla, 3 Factors Have Shifted Momentum [View article]
    Even if the stock goes back down to $40 a share, it will probably not remain there for that long and will eventually return to these levels as Tesla is a technically sound company with a good business model and excellent leadership shaking up a brand new industry and changing the world. I don't think there is much chance of them failing at making Tesla succeed, so long term, you don't have to worry much about the stock price!!!

    It will also take years for battery supply issues to become a problem for Tesla. Start looking at both sides of the story for once.

    ...and you don't think think other suppliers would love to invest a lot, knowing they have a market selling new batteries to Tesla? Even if Tesla had to invest in a huge battery factory, long term it would be a worthy investment. No more battery middlemen, all profit to Tesla on battery sales and car sales as well!!!!!

    Their "network" will cover almost the entire United States by the end of the year, so stop talking rubbish. Toyota, BMW, GM don't want to eat into their regular ICE vehicle sales too much... so I say - what threat???!!!

    Panasonic have traditionally made small, lithium ion batteries for small electronic appliances - NOT elecric vehcicles requiring hundreds of them in a 'battery pack' PER SINGLE VEHICLE. This is why there is a LONG TERM "shortage" of these types of batteries. Tesla is piggybacking on Panasonics existing small cells and joining them into a large 'pack' and thus Panasonic was not prepared to supply anything more than about it's current demand for small batteries, all used in small appliances only. Tesla is one of the safers cars in the world, so you don't know what your talking about.
