It's been awhile since I posted an Instablog here on Seeking Alpha, preferring instead to share my ideas with paying subscribers to my trading services. It is the proliferation of anti-Tesla articles and idiotic comments thereunder on that has brought be back to posting.
With what I figure is roughly about 10-1 TSLA bears to bulls on Seeking Alpha, we have a screaming long term TSLA Buy Signal. Notwithstanding interim declines of anywhere from 5-20% in the shares, TSLA is about as close as it comes to Amazon in the late 1990's. That's when everyone hated both Amazon shares and its CEO, Jeff Bezo's.
...A profile published in 2013 described a 1982 Miami Heraldinterview he gave after he was named high school class valedictorian. The 18-year-old Bezos "said he wanted to build space hotels, amusement parks and colonies for 2 million or 3 million people who would be in orbit. 'The whole idea is to preserve the earth' he told the newspaper .... The goal was to be able to evacuate humans. The planet would become a park.
This second paragraph is especially poignant as it correlates well with the vision of Elon Musk, the man who wants to take paying passengers to Mars (albeit not in my Model S you don't).
So where is TSLA on the AMZN trajectory?
Say what you will about profits and sales and tax incentives, but the similarities are striking. A company led by a visionary that is losing money on every product that it sells. Who else comes to mind? Yes, Steve Jobs. How did his vision turn out?
How To Trade Tesla's Coming Ascent
Every TSLA Buy Signal in our trading system HAS to be bought. Those bumps along the road, those 10-20% declines in stock price along the way will be alerted to early enough in their descent to by our algorithm to sidestep most of them. As the shares shed the downside and turn back up, the new Long trend will be identified and Buy Signals will begin kicking in. Take them, no questions asked. The ride will be exquisite...just like the car, just like the reusable rockets to Mars. This is the future of transportation on a scale that is just beginning make itself known to man, and to investors who have the vision to see it.
This is how we dodge potential steep declines. The algorithm smelled out a decline coming on this 240 minute price chart in late June and we exited at about $356. As of now, we will get back in above $350. No, we didn't save the much on the decline, but nor did we risk be in anything worse than has happened so far.
