Tesla Motors, Inc. (TSLA) Message Board

    You mentioned that you hoped Elon would be thankful and humble, well: "I would like to thank the Department of Energy and the members of Congress and their staffs that worked hard to create the ATVM program, and particularly the American taxpayer from whom these funds originate," said Elon Musk. "I hope we did you proud."

    • Elon makes mistakes, I admit that. But, he is a FAST learner. His agility is impressive.

      I'm so torn on what Tesla is worth as a stock this summer. I see lots of risk, but I also see tons of upside. Unlike the shorts I don't think Tesla is some dog going down, but wow $80 - $100 is not cheap.

      • I understand. It is hard to value a company that has game-changing technology. I have to look at what it would take for me to purchase one, and from there it helps me see what my gut feeling is telling me over the long term. That is: What would effect my being able to purchase a Tesla? and I'd have to say: cost, infrastructure, holding it's value, etc. I don't think cost is a factor for many because there are so many people with wealth - (not me, but they are out there,) and the infrastructure is probably the biggest.

        I know of alot of people that use their cars just for commuting, but if I could use it anywhere I'd want to go, thet would be the biggest hold-back. Crack that, and it's to the moon. When you look at the stock on a cost of $90/share, it may sound expensive. But think about a split, or 2, or more and what is that worth in the future? Think Apple at $45 before how many 4:1 splits and then to $700. I thought it was expensive then and never bought - but hindsight...

      • There's enough execution risk, as demonstrated by delays in Model X, that a price in the 60-65 range is warranted before we see Model X roll out
