Having a lot of money doesn't make someone intelligent. He is a foolish rich man who is not as intelligent as most people think. On-line payment is not grand original idea. It's been around ever since webpages been around. Electric car? Also not a grand original idea. Just because he has money to invest in such ideas have made it work. I don't consider that genius. Just money making more money. But now he thinks he is really a genius. What a joke.
You seem to be a bit on the stupid side. First off, if you're going to bash someone spell their name correctly. I shouldn't even need to mention PayPal, Space X, the sterling reviews of the Model S to make it clear this is a highly visionary and successful individual. Your post is that of a rambling buffoon.
You are WAY off. These guys are not "a bit on the stupid side". They are COMPLETELY on the stupid side. ;-)
One more thing: Elon put every dollar he had into Tesla and SpaceX. To not admire someone taking that kind of chance, creating many jobs in the process, says EVERYTHING about these guys and the probability is high that in fact they are more dependent on the government than the average citizen.
The real genius is the guy who made the paper clip. Sun tan lotion. Airplane. Light bulb. Something new that did not exist before. Making On-line payment, Rocket, Electric car? That's just business. And he thinks he can come up with original mode of travel. Hyper-loop? What a joke. He should have just kept quiet.
(( Electric car? Also not a grand original idea ))
GM used an AC motor in the EV1. That was 20 years ago.
Elon invented nothing here. He just put more content in an EV, which made it expensive, so he sells it at a loss.
This stock is going to Hyperloop down to the bottom.
And don't forget to charge your Tesla if you got hyped into getting one. Don't forget to charge. Every single night. And also get a generator in case power goes out. And fuel to run the generator. And make sure you don't go further than your allowed miles per charge. Carry a back up battery just in case. Have a nice trip.
