    I cannot buy puts with my account

    Crossing my fingers that I won't look like a loser tomorrow, as I want to hold this for long time.

      this is the way I see it... GAAP is looking for penny. It is an earnings call. 4 cents if the somewhat accurate guessers think they have their numbers right, but they aren't accountants. I can't believe they are sticking with the number of cars sold. It is beyond that. the line is level today because shorts are unsure and so are holders. Shorts are just looking for one pretty significant piece of bad news. I certainly don't see anything that bad right now. Shorts are playing a hunch on numbers/guessing only looking at this quarter and not the big picture. If Apple were to close-wouldn't you buy MS not matter what? EVs are needed. They are a necessity to humans existence on Earth without polluting ourselves to death. Where is the piece of bad news to be seen? Sure the stock is overpriced but so wasn't apple for years? To be a good investor you have to see the vision of the company - the long term plans. Yes this company will be profitable more and more as it grows into the future with logic and reason. I am hoping Elon comes out with a bus model for city transportation-those suc*ers drink gas and are noisy as heck. I see big profits from X-gas guzzler and a lot more with the III as it will hit the whole middle class and that is a huge market. Europe plays insanely high gas prices-NZ too. They can afford these cars and want them. It is just a matter of time, infrastructure and highly organized planning-all of which seem to be going pretty well in my opinion with such a young company.

      Like walking a tightrope without a net . . . it's scary now, but I think you will get across in one piece and look all the more gutsy tomorrow for it. I certainly hope so for your sake and mine.
