  • European stocks waver ahead of Greek vote [View news story]
    Tricky, here is the explanation of IMF fraud that you requested above.
    My source is Bill Black, an associate professor of economics and law at the University of Missouri Kansas City and a white collar criminologist and former financial regulator, and author of the book The Best Way To Rob A Bank is to Own One.

    Here is his interview on Greece:

  • European stocks waver ahead of Greek vote [View news story]
    This entire Greek crisis was a Goldman Sachs/IMF scam from the beginning.
    Yeah, Greece may have been bad at public spending of tax payers money, but that just means they will fall first to the loan sharks, before Italy and the others who are not much better off, but their turn is still coming and their citizens also don't deserve it.

    Once again the public are being made to pay for the corrupt government and their banker buddies, at least the new government has the balls to say enough is enough, we literally cannot pay back any more than we have because the loans were unpayable from the beginning (previous regime).

    And no, it's not the public's fault for voting the wrong party into power. The media lies and influences votes in every "democracy". There are also limits to just how much power the voters are given. At least the new government is giving them a referendum now. The IMF and wall street bankers can go to hell, they screwed America as well remember!!!

    60 percent unemployment and most pensioners below the poverty line. Yeah, those greedy Greeks!!! More like greedy IMF and previous Greek government who together hid Greek debt in order to join the Eurozone and get more loans to pay the loans they currently couldn't afford to pay back. As always, blame the banks and the politicians, not the people (except for the ulta-rich of course).

  • Tesla takes out $500M-$750M credit line [View news story]
    "Guess cash flow positive is out of the question." - yes, for a expanding company, planning lots of further expanding. They probably used existing cash flow to expand and now need money to replace that cash flow. If they simply chose to stop expanding tomorrow, all would be rosy immediately. But they are more forward thinking than that.

  • Here's Why I'm Buying SolarCity And Selling First Solar [View article]
    Whose side, you make perfect sense and I agree. Too bad others are so short sighted they cannot understand such a simple concept. Or maybe they are just short (ing) the stock.

  • Here's Why I'm Buying SolarCity And Selling First Solar [View article]
    Which would you invest in? A big solar company sacrificing short term profits for long term growth, or a different big company sacrificing long term growth for short term profits. I think SolarCity hasn't been around as long as First Solar, so maybe slight disadvantage their as far as track record, history, reliability factor, but otherwise fairly low risk by now, with massive growth history and growth potential. First Dollars cadmium telluride cells run some risk of loosing the race against silicon cells technology wise as well, although they have done a kind of OK job of keeping up so far.

    Even before buying a solar manufacturer, SolarCity was more than just an installer. They were a leaser of panels to the large majority of people who otherwise could not afford the upfront costs. Kind of like a bank, although a bank "leases" money and charges interest, while making little money short term, but a lot of money long term. Almost the same with SolarCity, except now they have diversified and become vertically integrated by buying a solar manufacturer.

    People on the comments must also difference between real losses and those which are a result of cap ex expenditure for massive growth in a company that's relatively new. SolarCity was not a manufacturer until recently and could and do finance of solar projects, or residential solar leasing do be more precise. So they could just pick and choose which manufacturer they wanted to buy panels from and not get involved in the bloody price wars. They only recently bought a manufacturer to secure a stable supply as they are predicting a general supply problem worldwide soon as the glut is somewhat over now. They can still buy panels from anyone though.

    I tend to agree with is article, although not completely. The off grid abilities that solar city can offer (solar plus storage) are currently limited, although they do exist for certain customers and regions and are set to expand rapidly in e next few years with battery economy of scale and tech improvement driven price reductions. PS. Tesla does have an advantage over other battery PACK storage providers in at battery packs are a "byproduct" of their electric car business and will have the worlds biggest battery factory in just a few years.

  • Tesla's Powerwall Adds Unmistakable Value [View article]
    Why should Tesla stop growing right now, in order to be profitable like the bigger auto companies as you expect of them?...and then forever remain at about the same size, never big enough to really compete with them?

    Portatopia, your reasoning continues to be completely flawed even after you've been reading numerous comments that are similar to mine on here.

  • Debate stirred up over government incentives for Tesla Motors [View news story]
    If it is true that Musk has "...given money to the Democrat Senate Campaign Committee" as "billjac" stated above, then that could be suspicious/immoral, but then again, if all the other automakers are doing the same, or to an even larger extend, then I kinda understand not wanting to be left out in the cold. Especially when there is so much legislation that exists and should be removed which unfairly denies Tesla Motors the right to sell direct to the public by bypassing 3rd party dealerships. Maybe he's also trying to grease there wheels there a bit.

    PS - a bit off topic, but on the issue of profitability at Tesla, as many have already stated, Tesla could if it wanted to be profitable tomorrow by cutting it's CAPEX spend in company growth. So to say it's not profitable is technically correct, but a little disingenuous.
