Also Model X's are coming and in quantity too. Cap ex is high due to the fact they have effectively doubled up the number of cars they are able to produce.
No unions. So no legacy pension funds. Workers are probably shareholders too.
Power wall effectively made a new company inside Tesla. They can now sell what they don't use for automotive for stationary batteries.
Gigafactory gives Tesla independence from outside sources and that this is too critical to allow another company to have control. Perhaps the biggest barrier to entry into the EV market is the battery. So it is laughable when they talk about competition in the EV market since Telsa's one year production at full tilt would take every Lithium Ion battery produced in a year world wide. By the time the competition comes around Tesla will be on the Gigafactory 2 and 3. The Power wall will make economies of scale to happen much much faster.
Stock has been basing for 8 months now. The bigger the base the better the case. New equity will be raised when stock hits a new high. That will be ear marked for Model 3 and Gigafactory 2.0 and increased production of Model S and X.
Tesla rolled out its company quite logically. They needed the model S for the supercharger network. This network will service the Model X, Model 3 and any other model they come up with in the future.
You can't roll out a $30000 car and afford to build that network. Supercharger network will just be additive.
The stone age ended not from a lack of stones. It ended because something better came along.
It is going to be very very hard to cover the 25% overhang. There is 102% tightly held shares. If they don't sell then it all comes down to how much money can the shorts lose. As long as Tesla keeps executing the barbecue will continue. Well done Tesla. Make the shorts well done.
The author of the latest article from logical thought or rather flawed thought titled "Why A Profitable $35,000 Tesla Model E Is A Pipe Dreamat Seeking Alpha(Sun, Feb 23)".
This is flawed. He took a $59 K price tag for a S60 and then subtracted $$13K off of it. His answer was $47K. Well that is flawed right there. TSLA margins are 25%. Therefore that has to come off right off the comparisons unless you want a $35K car with $15K profit margins. So we take the 25% off. That leaves $45K. Then you take the $13K off leaving $33K. The margins will be tighter on the $35K but not impossible as they get better at producing. But this is a major flaw in the author's logic.
The wiring is the issue with 100A. You need the right gauge wire for that. The tesla charges just fine with a 40 A oven outlet. The wire is cheaper too. You can easily charge up the model S with an oven outlet.
Lone_Ranger. This counttrarian is a genius. He believes I should leave my model S adapter attached to the car. Yes pure genius. I should drive around with a cord hanging out of my car. Maybe I should attach a can to it for noise. He probably sweeps the floor at Best Buy.
You know what. You are right. I should leave my car adapter plugged in when I drive around. Why didn't I think of that. Gee. Every car sold by Tesla comes with a cord adapter that fits basically all plugs. Elon Musk should just quit and TSLA should hire you. Gee. You thought of everything. How much range could I get with my Model S if I left it plugged in? Well the cord is only what 8 feet. You are a genius. You have solved all the problems by leaving the car plugged in even while driving. People like you always have to be right until life beats the #$%$ out of them.
Yes and if you the TSLA has no power then you don't have a backup plan either. How does an electrical grid determine what is a TSLA and what is say your oven or fridge???
My adapter is always in my car. The model S has so much trunk space there is no excuse for not leaving it in the car.
Before Tesla were there any electrical fires caused by arcing or bad workmanship? I guess electricity is dangerous but so are candles.
Having owned a BMW, I agree with your statement. Every time BMW touched my car it costed $1500. No matter what the repair was. I own a Model S and it is by far the best car I have ever driven.
The Tesla Model S has the location of the super chargers. They also update whether they are available or not. If there is more demand they will build more.
The volume was well over 2 times the daily average. Technically this is very bullish.
The Chart has a cup and handle pattern. This is very bullish.
The Precious metals are over sold. Gold is going to stage a comeback to $1525 in the not too distant future. Silver will get pulled up along with it. Therefore SLW is the place to be if this happens. There is a reason and rationale for today's rally. Do not for one minute think I am a hypester. I am not. I'll turn on this thing if I think the run is over. It will test $28-29 which is the long term resistance line. However this is really not up to SLW. It is more up to the price of Silver and Gold. Seasonality is currently favouring those 2 to go higher and they are way oversold. Also the sentiment on the precious metals is putrid. I like to buy putrid and have been here in SLW for a while.
Okay. Here is the exact quote taken from the earnings release. There was a $4.5 million charge applied to the 20 cents a share earnings. See below for release. Actual earnings from operations were 35 cents a share.
Earnings and Operating Cash Flows
Net earnings in the second quarter of 2013 were $71.1 million ($0.20 per share), compared with $141.4 million ($0.40 per share) for the same period in 2012, a decrease of 50%. In the second quarter, a charge of $4.5 million was taken as a result of refinancing the Bridge Facility. Cash flow from operations in the second quarter of 2013 was $125.3 million ($0.35 per share1), compared to $172.9 million ($0.49 per share1) for the same period in 2012, a decrease of 28%. Earnings and cash flow were impacted by lower gold and silver prices, as well as increased costs due to an increase in gold sales, as noted above.
I sifted through SLW's earnings report. This may not have been a miss. They took a $4.5 million dollar one time charge for getting rid of some bridge financing. Without that charge the earnings were 35 cents a share from an operational standpoint. The analysts would not have factored in that one time 4.5 million hit.
Everyone should put the guy on ignore. What you do is under "Flag" there is an arrow. You click on the arrow. Then there is a choice of ignore user. This way this guy will continue to show the world he is an idiot and continue to talk to himself. If you notice he only replies to himself. That lone negative to your comment came from him.
Option market makers are real thieves. They play with the equations to screw the buyers. I hate them so much I no longer play. Even when you make the correct call they #$%$. If a market call goes against you they #$%$ even more. So you stay out of the options unless you are real sure you can catch them off guard. All the theoretical books in the world do not mention how a #$%$ market maker operates. They are the true #$%$ of the earth and the only winning move is not to play.
The money has gone to money heaven. The biggest trick was convincing the public that Facebook is needed. The truth is that it isn't. There is so much cyber bullying, garbage going on that this thing won't survive for much longer.
