wrong. You've been added to my ignore list. Enjoy covering your shorts.
To all those in doubt. Here you go-I can't disclose the number in the factory as I would get arrested but here is the publicly known numbers:
If I remember correctly, Tesla delivered 6900 cars in the last quarter of 2013. However, their guidance for Q1 2014 was 6400 cars; they said the decrease would be due to completed cars "filling the pipeline" for China deliveries (i.e., a good number of cars would be completed, but on a cargo ship to China). Since then, I have seen analysts comment on the lower expected delivery number without realizing/remembering the reasoning....but I digress.
I've now seen a few estimates for Q1 2014 deliveries, and while I don't know the original sources of these numbers, things look good. Here's what I've got:
- 2000 cars delivered in Norway in Q1, with nearly 1500 in March alone (that was publicized in several places)
- 4700 cars delivered in the US in Q1 (LA Times: http://www.latimes.com/business/autos/la-fi-hy-tesla-sales-slow-20140408...)
- I'm guessing that there were probably at least a couple hundred deliveries in other areas of Europe, Canada, etc.
- Total estimate, assuming the Norway and US numbers are accurate: 6900+
Tesla should be way over their 6400 guidance.
You can try to rationalize it any way you want but the bottom line is investors what profits. Tesla can do that with Gen III and pay out about 25% of their profits with Gen III sales. Every investor should know by now that evaluation means absolutely nothing. Zip.
Tesla Motors offers electric vehicles that consumers and companies are opting for over other luxury vehicles. The company is ready to start shipping its Model S sedans to Chinese buyers. The stock has been pulling back and is currently trading sideways. Over the last four quarters, earnings have been mixed while revenues have been rising, which has left investors pleased. Relative to its peers and sector, Tesla Motors has been a year-to-date performance leader. Look for Tesla Motors to continue to OUTPERFORM.
Thanks... I put you on my ignore list and reported you. Thanks.
I see you're ultra worried about your naked short. Enjoy.
Gen III will have average price of about 47k
X ave price will be 60k
S ave price is 79k
Truck will be 47k just like X base model.
The driver ran out of juice because he didn't plan ahead. He even admitted it. Get over it. Enjoy covering your short.
The problem here is the owner not the car. You need to plan. If you can't live or in this case, plan your drive then you shouldn't buy one. You're too dumb.
OMG...you are lame. You just support Icahn's bad judgement and following his skin. I'll bet all my money he also has a huge short position to cover himself with his Apple stock. 700-600-500 see a trend here?!
