    Go read it. it was either right above or right below the line about the CFO leaving. Engineering in a manufacturing environment is about much more then salaries.......

    They had so many problems engineering the vehicle and by Musks own admission they still do. In the second quarter earnings release they said they spent over 400 million-IN 90 DAYS-just on engineering issue with The X. I am with you, I do not think the X Deliveries will be anywhere near their goals and that fact will be know very shortly.

    If your a trader I would wait until tomorrows close because The Option Boys stepped in at noon for the block. Trend is down so the logical way would buy puts or short near the close tomorrow........only problem with this stock is Musk could tweet something and it is up 12 bucks.....

  • Zero buying. None and at 12:00:15 they moved it up 2 bucks. Time to cash in the puts buyers. Trend is down and volume is up. Play their game and make money. buy the hype of green scam and lose it all.

  • Looks like the 225 is where they put in the block for this week......if you have the ability look at the trading at noon...within 10 seconds it bounces 2.50 out of no where....good to print money isn't it?

    And taxpayer money to boot!! Green Scam=176 worldwide bankruptcy and counting-all of them funded or guaranteed by taxpayers somewhere. California yesterday just doubled down on Green Scam meaning the highest electric bills in the country just went North. Somebody buys a 120K car and gets a tax credit....I thought the Lefties hated people with money?

    Can Obama extend the tax credits?

    What does it matter with Obama/ when has he let the Constitution stand in his way for anything? Green Energy as it is today is a scam and does not exists at all without 1005 government policy and taxpayer money. 85% of Green energy spending and build out is in California or supplying California. why? because the lefty loons who run that state 9 since 4 million Mexicans were allowed to vote 25 years ago) have forced Green energy on their citizens. the fact that California has the highest energy rates in Mainland USA is just the cost of doing the right thing....and of course lining the pockets of Dem supporters.
    So yes, Obama will use an executive order to extend a tax...completely illegal but so is everything he does....

    aftr the fed pumped 90 billion a month in. Good luck with your Liberalism. Make sure you have a lot of hard working will need their money.

  • finplan95 finplan95 Oct 7, 2015 3:13 PM Flag mean like in California where people who are earning money are leaving?
    Good luck buddy....if you ever decide to read something try looking at every history of mankind who goes down the road of the all ends in bankruptcy, despair, despot leaders and mass killings........but it sounded good.
    In Europe, they literally have parades when unemployment gets below 8% because government controls everything....which is why you have 9$ gasoline, 70% tax brackets and a national sales tax of 16% on everything. meanwhile, in 240 years we literally blew by them all. Hey, take a trip to inner city Chicago or Philadelphia one evening around 2 am and see what all that 'welfare' has done for entire societies.....just make sure your will is up to date......

    Where to start;

    it is 3 trillion over budget per the CBO. Why? Because it was a total lie. it was sold as 980 billion over revenue for the first ten year-why-because the law COLLECTED THE 17 NEW TAXES ADDED FOR THE LAW FOR 4 YEARS BEFORE ONE SERVICE WAS ACTUALLY OFFERED. now that we are looking at a true revenue vs cost we see the real picture-it is a financial disaster.
    87% of the people who are on the program are getting it for free or less then 70 a is welfare. Period
    We have had 4 hospital groups and two health care providers buy each other in the last 6 months. why? Because under obamacare they will lose millions as a stand alone company. Just as the Dems wanted.
    We now have California giving Obama care to illegal aliens-citizens of other countries are getting taxpayer $. Just as predicted by us and denied by the Dems.
    The average price increase for people who are actually paying for their health care will be 32% according to the government for 2016. why? to pay for the millions of illegals and forever dead beats who are getting freebies.
    "liberalism works until you run out of other peoples money" Margaret Thatcher PM Great Britan
    Obama has now presided over a double of the national debt in 7 years........but we have gay marriage, Obamacare, and beheadings on the evening news...oh yeah, a 100K electric car with 20K of taxpayer funding.....

  • and has competition at price points lower? and the big one-what other manufacture of 100K plus products also gets over 20K a unit in tax give away and only exists because of government policies?
    move the CAFE standards to 15% lower and get rid of the tax breaks- Tesla does not sell 10K cars a year........
    Just like all things Left-a scam, a sham, and a costly joke. (see Hillary or Obamacare numbers for more info....)

  • Obama to use the Right of the King to give another couple of trillion to the Green Scam Lobby. We have oil and gas now at 305 of the cost of unsubsidized Green Scam which is why it is dying on the vie everyplace the government does not fund it. Over 3 trillion of taxpayer dollars and guarantees so far world wide..........just throw it on the pile with health care, internet, 44 new taxes, 92 million people not working, 48 million on food stamps and of course 300K a year citizens of Mexico and Honduras invading our borders so they can vote Dem in the next election.

    We now have enough oil and gas to export it and still have a 400 year supply....but lets use tax dollars to build junk.....Has to be a Liberal idea.....

    WSJ article - Tesla Is a Compliance Company

    Oh don't worry, The Dems will attach solar/green giveaways to every bill like:
    Kindergarten funding and solar act
    Safety for Kittens and Green Enhancement Act
    Food for Children and Solar Security Act
    Housing for Veterans and EV Development Act

    No where will it mention the over 1 trillion of taxpayers $ worldwide that has resulted in over 400 bankruptcies andan energy source that is 50% more expensive on its own 2 feet.

  • Who can forget The Magic Tweet from Elon on a Sunday just as the stock was in a down trend and about to take out 18 month support......remember, he had news so good he had to alert us on a Sunday but not be able to tell u for 10 days. And when the market opened on Monday it rallied for 10 days....then sold right back when the "news' was the S would now have a low fuel light.......7 days later another tweet....this time a 4 day wait for a 'batter'......that drove it up 70 dollars.

    I do not know why any ceo of any company bothers to have earnings announcements when you can just tweet your way to riches Of course it probably helps f you can have lunch with Obama 4 times a year like elon.....

    TSLA Can't Execute; Musk is not the Founder

    finplan95 finplan95 Aug 6, 2015 9:45 AM Flag

    All true but Obama is president. so there will be no investigation, no stoppage of taxpayer give away, no accountability, no let up on pushing gas mileage average higher that forces manufactures to make EV vehicles despite no demand-and most importantly-no chance in hades of this company making any money for the next 3 will be the GOP Congresses fault when it collapses because they stopped the Green Scam tax boondoggle.

  • But, this is Green Scam and Team Obama has put the word out: Sue or mention anything bad about Green Scam and you will get the same treatment as the guy who made that video about Benghazi.
    This company tweets, twirks, lies, spins, embellishes, and flat out deceives while spending 400 million every 90 days with no end in site. and in they are collecting over 2 billion a year in tax dollars in one form or another-it is a scam funded and supported by the Big Scam in Dc. But
    If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor. Period.

  • And it isn't just the tax breaks. Libs always use misdirection in any policy they push. Pick one-I will explain. but today it is Green Sam and EV cars. Why are manufactures making EV cars when there is no demand, oil is dropping in half, and nobody makes a dime? Because Obama raised the CAFE Limits for fleet fuel mileage. The way it works I like so: If the standard has to be 45 mpg by 2025 that means the AVERAGE FOR THE FLEEET has to be 45 and NOT the average of the cars actually being sold. what's the fastest way to meet another losing liberal idea?: Mae an EV car that averages 100 MPG. this allows you to sell couple of pickup trucks and SUV's that people actually want and that the car companies actually make money. doesn't matter if they only sell EV cars....and trust me they are praying that is all they sell because they lose thousands every time one goes out the door.
    Now TESLA sells only EV's so they are completely dependent on government for everything. ths is why they sell over 80% of thir vehicles in California-because Cali adds an additional tax give away. Also why on the Great is pushing for another 30 mpg added to the average CAFE standard...........ut is a scam pushed on us by the Left like everything they do. Obamacare, gay marriage, control of the internet, bringing in illegals by the busload......all polls are against the Dem side and this is why they currently hold the fewest elected seats across he country in 100 years....they have taken landslide losses....but it does no matter....they are Liberals....they know better....and you have plenty of money left they can take.

    You need to wake up...this is how the Left has destroyed ever culture it controls. Obama today will get rid of coal and is nullifying Nat gas bygiving "credits" to state who go to Green. Meaning, California will be bailed out for its huge electric bills by everybody else. How it works. The greatest disappointment to team Obama is they were sure by now gasoline would be 6 bucks a gallon at least....then those damn oil companies found all this oil and gas. Guess they will just have to stop it with Executive Orders/////like the Founding Fathers wanted....right?

  • finplan95 finplan95 Aug 3, 2015 4:09 PM Flag

    At a cost of 4.9 trillion and growing? it was 'sold' at 980 billion remember? It is a welfare program plain and simple. 40% of the "new" insured are people who had policies they liked but were told by Obama that they are no good and they had to "buy" obamacare-and he counts them as new policies!!! 85% of the rest pay nothing for their health care.
    Obamacare is at a 39% average support level since it was placed around the necks of taxpayers-which is why the Dem Party now holds the fewest amounts of elected seats in the last 95years.

  • Car companies reporting huge sale of pick up and SU's and making $ as oil prices slide. We could blow the roof of his economy if Team Obama got out of the way. Instead, he announces today that your electric bill is getting ready to explode and e has found a way to bail ut California from its 400 billion deficit from illegal aliens and Green taxes. His plan gives "credits' to stats that have moved to Green already. So that means the country is going to pay for California where the Looney Let Starts everything. Anyway, in the time it took me to type this Ford sold more F-150's and Explorers ten Tesla will sell cars in the next 18 months........
