    Summary of TSLA Earnings Release and Conference Call

    Here is summary of what is really going on (for the longs who are too clueless to be able to read between the lines):

    1. TSLA needed to gin up some type of "agreement" with Panasonic before earnings were released in order to try to pump the stock price, so they issued a PR that basically says nothing. The terms of the deal were not disclosed because TSLA does not want all of the lemming longs to know how #$%$ they are and how little Panasonic is willing to commit to the gigafactory (rumored only $200MM).

    2. TSLA's CEO thinks that he can control whether fuel cell vehicles will ever be successful. How? Because he's Elon Musk (aka Ironman) and controls the universe, that's how. Facts be damned - it's Musk's way or the highway. Unfortunately for Musk, that's not how life works.

    3. TSLA's CEO thinks that if the gigafactory doesn't get built everyone on the planet is in dire and imminent peril from - GASP - carbon dioxide!!! You know, the stuff that plants breathe in order to live - god forbid that we have enough of that stuff! Another example of how deluded and what an egomaniac Mr Musk is.

    4. TSLA is blowing through money like crazy - but won't disclose any info on how much capex they plan to spend. Why so secretive? No doubt they think the lemming longs will flee the stock once they figure out that TSLA will never turn a real GAAP profit and they will never see a dividend in their lifetimes.

    5. TSLA's CEO and CTO appear flummoxed whenever any analyst dares to question whether EVs will ever get to price parity with ICE vehicles. Why is this? Maybe they secretly know it will never happen - or at least not soon enough to keep their supposed empire intact.

    Listen to the call, read the earnings PR - then read between the lines. Things are going south for this company quickly. They are burning through their cash and levering up - it's an increasingly dangerous situation for shareholders. Any long with a brain should be able to see this.
