Yep. Typical. It's like when little Johnny wants to jump off the roof wearing his Superman costume because he's sure it'll make him fly. Then an adult gets involved and tells him no. So little Johnny screams, "hater!!"
Really, you're just asserting that anybody who doesn't sign up for your magical thinking and your financial delusion must be a hater. Um, no -- they're just skeptical, experienced, and have some historical perspective.
And you're a sheep by definition -- you've already been fleeced.
Headed the right direction? Have you even looked at a chart? Unless you're trading on an hour-by-hour basis, it's pretty much been a steady march down from $85. It's headed in the right direction only if you're short, or you're a masochist.
... not to mention off 52% from the high. Technical nightmare. If you're long Yelp, it's from blind devotion and because you're drunk on the Kool Aid. It's not a rational hold.
Um, how about this: Narcissist industrialist becomes a kind of cult leader -- asking devotees to believe despite objective reality, and requires the confiscation of personal assets. Because that's a truer picture of what's going on here. Elon Musk is running his own private Scientology look-alike cult.
Oh, me too! It's my hobby! Also, I have a perpetual motion machine I want to show you. Also an HHO water electrolysis engine for my car. Unlimited energy! Oh, also Nassim Haremein gave me a prototype of his Sacred Geometry machine that pulls energy out of "the void" for free! Also Fleischmann-Pons Cold Fusion machine. I have a dozen of them! I've become a millionaire selling free energy back to the power companies. I'd be a trillionaire except that I'm being Supressed by government forces!
There. I hope I've qualified myself to be gullible enough to invest in Tesla.
Except the opportunity costs of not putting your money into some other investment that will actually give you some kind of reliable yield and not expose you to freakish risk. Your strategy only makes sense if you can afford to lose your investment, and you're immortal. If both these things are true, please -- go ahead and go long.
Forward = "this is our guess of how things will go". It's based on a forecast. Ie., more fairy-tales. Keep drinking the Kool Aid. I forecast you will lose your shirt.
Yeah. Stock is down 30% from the high over only a few months, and trending down. Lower highs, lower lows. It's a technical nightmare. You must be smoking ibogaine. You're completely disconnected from reality. Keep going long. I'll keep taking your money.
No, but I can point out throngs of longs in a state of hypnotic euphoria, dreaming of a groovy, carbon-neutral world of sleek, silent cars and hyperloop subways, all overseen by Benevolent Emperor Musk.
Oh, please. Disruption can happen with an app or a smart phone. Elon Musk thinks he's smarter than every other auto maker on the planet. Um, he's not. Not even close. Remember the Tucker? The DeLorean? The rotary engine? All "disruptive" technologies. All defunct. Scream disruptive all you want, this is just another electric car, built on aging battery technology, with a candy-coating of Gee Whiz. If you think Ford or Gm is just going to drop a multi-trillion-dollar opportunity in Musk's lap, you're dreaming.
Look at the sky long enough, you'll see faces. This stock is way off its high, and trending lower -- this is not speculation, it's fact. How do you rationalize that?
