Tesla has hit the ball out of the Stadium. 420,000 pre-orders with deposits just the new Model 3. By the time ztesla starts to deliver them in late 2017 there will be well over 1 million pre-orders.
This company is ramping up faster than anyone expected. They will be profitable by late 2017 and making boatloads money by 2018
flip side of higher Yen hurts #$%$. exporters. They are already getting worried in China n #$%$an n Germany, TRUMP wont let asian exporters continue rip off USA by artificially low Yen.
For only $10 billion, mere 5% of Apple's Cash-Hoard, Apple can set up a New Co. to KNOCK OFF AMAZON's Operation, making a deal with Sears and Macys to also open warehouses around the country for also on-line selling of goods. Amazon's total positive cash-flow since going public in 1996 is only $5 billion. The entire company can be re-created for less than $10 billion -- and Apple can do the Logistics Software to make another Amazon, better than Amazon did it.
See my earlier post "RESCUE APPLE WITH ONLY $10 BILLION" of its capital, in a deal with Sears and Macys, to knock off (and improve upon) Amazon's non-proprietary warehouses and logistics and low paid order-picker personnel operation.
$10 Billion is a pittance for APPLE, only about 5% of its $235 Billion CASH-HOARD.
But its 2X Amazon's total Pos. Cash-Flow since it went public, abut equal to 1 - 2X Amazon's Book Value (stock-holder's equity). SO FOR $10 BILLION, APPLE COULD INVEST IN A NEW COMPANY TO BE FORMED WITH SEARS AND MACY's TO COMPETE WITH AMAZON, BY SETTING UP WAREHOUSES STAFFED WITH LOW-COST SHIPPING LABOR (as Amazon uses) AND COMPUTER SY SYSTEM TO RUN IT BY APPLE STAFF (which would be better logistics software than Amazon probably has -- because they would start with analyzing what Amazon already has and improve on it, just as the Japanese always did vs. American tech. cos.) FACT: Amazon has 0 "proprietary". Amazon is merely shipping warehouses and online website for ordering and software for managing logistics, and low-paid near min. wage order picking employees. SO RATHER THAN BUY BACK $250 BILLION APPLE SHARES NEXT 4 YEARS, Apple should use just $10 billion to make a deal with Macys and Sears to make a New Online Retailer Nationwide BETTER THAN AMAZON.
Do they report soon, after Apple's new car project has more hints.
Or what about BMW and Toyota's tech. and projects in Electric Cars?
You don't expect the Japanese to let Tesla take/steal more than a niche-segment of market share in Electric Cars do you? After all, the Prius is mainly an electric car.
this time I agree. FBI can now break open everyones IPhone Data, means lower Apple sales.
before the big oil price decline, X was between $25 and $120 the prior decade 2005 to 2015. Check it out. So the low end $25 already discounts problems.
Where it traded from 2005 to 2015. Watch and learn. Don't even think if selling till its $50, which.it will be in two years after enough excess steel capacity is finally shuttered in Asia.
Qtr ended 9/30/2015. $822 million more than covers 1 years debt-service-interest-expense on entire $20 billion borrowed by FCX at its average 3.7% cost of capital, that is bar wi interest rate it pays on borrowings.
