They wanted to burn the shorts. That is why they released the profitbaility guidance first and the lease option later. Looks like their plan worked with stock stabilizing back above 41 for now. There is every possibility that they will do that again.
yes they will. they have already promised an announcement every 1-2 weeks with new items for a total of 5
next is a new maintenance plan, i am sure to even lower cost further (although 600 dollars a year is pretty cheap already), then an upgrade to the super charger network and then a new feature on the model s. what is really unbelievable is that everyone who has bought the car already will have the new feature. it must be software activated or upgrade.
Hi Kj or futurecartsla, can you explain your reasoning for why Profitability followed by lease is better than Lease then profitability release? I felt like it was an unforced error on Elon's part to release the news so close and to hype the second one so much. I would have thought he could have gone with profitability, and then not tweeted about the Lease but used it to stabilize the high price about 4 days after the profitability release- when the stock would begin to see people profit take. In the way he did it, he actually made the Lease news work against the stock, in my opinion.
