are you saying the average person will begin buying their family car a year or more in advance and have no way to get rid of their old family car. TSLA is a fad for rich people who want another toy or two. That is it. Until they can provide a lot full of cars at dealerships for people to see, touch and drive home that day after trading in their own old car, this is nothing but a dream in analysts minds that will go poof one of these days.
you mean like a "toaster" or coffee maker. Does the car have a 110 outlet to run those devices off of batter power as you drive down the road. Maybe we even get a flashlight since the car has many "batteries" to light it.
at least AMZN made a profit but after many years. They sell to masses so they can raise revenue as they go. TSLA will likely never sell to the masses which is its Achilles heel. If they sell to masses, they cannot service them. If they don't sell to masses, the company is a failure. Either way it is a crash waiting to happen
you folks with your heads in the clouds (or somewhere else the sun never shines) are excited when sales rise 50%. Do you not realize annual growth needs to be close to 200% per year to get to 500,000 cars per year by 2020 (only 5 years from now). The model 3 (if ever released), cannot sell that many more cars as it would have to be a tin can junk car to be priced as promised (not that the promises are ever met at TSLA dreamland).
they lose on each car and they do sell a few more cars along the way, so that number should keep getting higher which is much like running a government (sounds familiar). No wonder Obama likes this type company. It is like a government finance operation
Considering they lose $4,000 - $5,000 per car, they likely would hope they don't sell any next quarter so the only expenses will be fixed costs?????
you would be very wrong. Accrual basis firms do not expense costs to build a product one period and then reflect the sale income in a different one unless they are violating all accounting principles known to man for publicly traded firms.
so you mean it is really as bad as we thought all along and it is not getting better as was required to keep company out of BK
Hillary probably drinks same Kool Aid and likely will still give more money we don't have to the Tesla fans Since she is against anyone who makes money (except herself of course), I would think she would want to put TSLA on its own and let people pay more for those non essential cars costing so much That would be fun to watch if she can be against drug companies and anyone else who makes money, she should be against Musk taking money from the government with credits
they might be about to crank out large number of Model x but if no one wants those gadgets instead of a regular dependable SUV, then they cannot justify building extra ones
you will need some downgrades to get the ball rolling down hill for stock price. Somehow the lemmings keep it from falling by continuing to follow their fearless leader without question about his ability to carry out lofty goals when he continues to miss guidance.
at this point it will take a long time to produce 500 Model X as you imply in your note
Some of the cars in copart or other lots do not appear to be badly damaged while others are torn up. Why are those mildly damaged cars in copart and not repaired and put back on the road? Are they just so hard to fix that if you have a fender bender, it is toast? Anyone here have more information on these cars.
the loons are eating it up as TSLA is up again today but at least not really much more than the markets
they supposedly sold about 6 model X. That does not leave all that many Model S needed to reach the new lowered guidance
are you a lonely person. It seems as if you respond to your own messages as many times as all other responses you get. We do feel sorry for you
