Even I thought a buyout will make this fly, but I doubt if google will buy. It might start
to nibble with a few billions, taking a stake in it. Elon is not stupid not to invite Page or Brin and
talk about it.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Their biggest (most realistic) worry for shorts is a pre-earnings guidance update, followed by a blow-out sales number, investments from other companies (goog, daimler, etc), is possible.
If Google had made a car it would be the Model S, but with Autopilot, and android for the giant nav screen.
If Apple had made a car it would be the Model S but with an Ipad for the nav screen.
Yahoo! has no business makeing a car. Please Yahoo!, what you did to mail was bad enough.
Both Google and Apple have tons of cash. If tumblr and instagram are worth a billion dollars as a buy out, how can Tesla only be worth 10? Captive rich with a 12" tablet to sell them stuff. Oh, just wait on the money stream for that. What will be in the Tesla App store?
Because (1) Google hass got $50 *billion* cash (and its "burning a hole in the pocket"), Apple and Yahoo roughly the same, (2) CEOs of these companies are buddy-buddy with Musk and (3) they're all in Silicon Valley where (as everyone knows-?-) *all* innovation takes place. Lots of shooting from the hip in this stock.
