    There are NO earnings results that will please the street

    If they show a profit, it will be smaller than last Q. If the show any loss, the stock plunges, even though its expected to lose money. And if it misses, LOOK OUT BELOW. 40 pt haircut in a day.
    I think 145 area is absurd for a company that makes almost no money. It must correct. Expect to see 110 area again by the end of the week.
    Keep in mind, it would have to show a 25 cent profit for the next 5 years just to balance out all the losses it has seen in the last two years.

    • Take a look at the beloved FSLR after earnings tonight. LNKD was an anomaly.....I think TSLA will take a huge fall tomorrow night.

    • You are correct. How can this be worth 4 1/2 times what GM is worth and 10 times what ford is worth? The stock is selling higher than Toyota also. I know it has to do with the number of shares and all but 145?......really?

      • I bought put options today, but I need to give you this quick lesson, so you don't sound like a brand new investor. The share price has nothing to do with the value of a company. Companies don't issue the same amount of shares, so a company that issues a small amount (TSLA) can have a higher stock price, but still be less valuable than a company with a lower stock price that issues a huge amount (GM).

        Look at the MARKET CAP...

        GM - 49.77 BILLION
        F - 66.95 BILLION
        TSLA - 16.43 BILLION
