    Ex-dealer claims Tesla is no match for BMW. Why is the stock up today?

    Is there something that this ex-BMW dealer knows that we don't? Good that I know a thing or two about BMW's. He is full of it.

      you're going to tell me that Tesla ... will penetrate the auto market more forcefully than ... BMW, who ... a full array of models to reach every segment of the luxury market?

      • LOL! You conveniently left out my comment about, and I quote, "...both Mercedes AND BMW, who both have a full array of models.......". You honestly think Tesla will outsell both the S Class AND 7 Series combined in the first year? That was also part of my post. Then again, it appears being transparent and truthful are not qualities you possess.

        Now, if you can make a stretch out of what I actually said to infer Tesla is no match for BMW (Which I DID NOT say!), then you truly are a mystic!

        Oldtimer, for a guy who professes to be some sort of financial expert, I must say it appears you were never near a logic class in college!

        Oh, and thanks for the dig about me just being a high school graduate. Is there any part of your brain that resides in the 21st century, OR at a 12 year old level?

        Now, how about YOU answering at least the first questions I asked you yesterday? Saying I didn't answer you is a lie. We both know it, Mr self-proclaimed Cash Flow expert!

    • I'd like to know where I ever said Tesla is no match for BMW? Does ANYONE have a link?

      Didn't think so!

    • As a BMW owner and fanboy, I will say Tesla is just as good if not better. Both are great companies, but right now Tesla just has that spirit and excitement that makes it much more appealing.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • Actually BAMXy (BMW listing) barely kept up with TSLA since IPO. BMW is an interesting company and pedigree. The majority owners are descendants of Magda Goebbels, the infamous #$%$'s wife, but by a previous marriage. They made a ton of money outfitting the German U-Boats with advanced batteries during WWII, etc.

      BMW is better run than Mercedes. However, if there is paradigm shift to BEV due to cheap hi capacity batteries, it remains to be seen who will be the leaders. Like with Kodak that dominated photography for almost a century, till digital photography took over.

      I think the mass market BEV revolution is probably 5 years away based on what Envia, CLB, etc are developing.
