  • Tesla Remains A Buy [View article]
    If I want to build a rocket ship, it needs fuel. Where does that fuel exist? In the case of $TSLA it's batteries fueled by electric power. There is an abundance of electricity, but there is not an abundance of batteries. Pure and Simple.

    shark..it's part of the discussion missing from the room, but it's the elephant. Listen to last conference call...."more granular details will be provided". Granular is code word for fine print.

    All good comments, and great article. Again...how are they going to build a battery factory and what impact will it have on current share price?

    qtr...would you wait until after 1st earnings report? I agree on the long term, but best to wait then go directional or straddle? I expect IV to implode one way or another into Feb.

  • S&P closes above 1800, Dow finishes seventh straight weekly gain [View news story]
    $SPX, had to take the time to recheck, but by my count SP500 finished 8th straight week up through close today, next week is week nine. I don't bother with DOW, but think $SPX number is equally if not more important.

    Headline news in "battle ground" stocks works both ways. Tough to anticipate.

  • Tesla Motors' CEO Discusses Q3 2013 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    bery..sorry for the purposeful delay. The awful part was that they are going to do HUGE things in 2014 (no specifics). I've worked with very brilliant scientists/salesman over 30 years. The best of the best always use other peoples money, and are very wonderful people and wonderful salesman...but they have to use other people's money. The Red Flag was raised when listening to this conference call. It was almost like movie promotion. They will not be able to achieve the height of their imagination without lots and lots of money. Dilution of stock shares will pay for their dream, and future book/movie tours. That's about as simple as I can put it.
    While TESLA (the company) is a great endeavor, I'd rather work with them because it would be fun and challenging. I would not buy stock from another stock holder through some misguided idea that I had ownership in the company. That ownership in stock shares will be diluted in 2014..guaranteed.

    Regarding the conference call, it was simply awful. I have no idea what these guys are trying to portray other than pure disdain for any owners of $TSLA stock. It's quite honorable in a way.

  • Fed boosts speculation about tapering by year-end, stocks slide [View news story]
    No.. it's not. If you think for a minute that BB was going to announce anything earth shaking into the retail season, then you're sadly mistaken. Expect the same in November. Buy a clue.

    I didn't see or hear anything "hawkish" about the release today. Pathetic and misleading headline. Sorry. Let's try to keep it real.

  • J.C. Penney pops after Ullman reaffirms sales guidance [View news story]
    This Reuters misquote went on all day before a correction came out. Misquote still being parroted on some newswires. That said, I'm not sure the market really cares. There is so much bad news out there, any positive news at all was bound to give this stock a bounce.

  • Icahn lowers Netflix stake to 4.5% [View news story]
    One week's worth of gains wiped out. Not exactly what I'd call bubble bursting, not yet anyway.
