    you gotta be REAL DUMB...

    all the "high-flyers" were GREEN and now they dropped back INTO RED...

    A. THE DOW IS DOWN 93... DUMDUM

    B. you could be making a "ton of money" just daytradin' the volatility" on TESLA...because IT HAS BEEN GOING UP AND DOWN "intraday" WITH THE "DOW FOR MONTHS"...

    C. that's why it's easy TO TELL YOU "NEGATIVE POSTERS ARE "JUST TROLLS FOR VESTED INTERESTS"

    why would you even waste YOU'RE TIME COMMENTING HERE..when you could BE DAYTRADIN' TESLA'S DAIILY VOLATILITY RANGE??? and makin' a small fortune???

    I only look in "once in a whilel" ...if I WAS DAYTRADING THE LAST FEW MONTHS...like I suggested above... I would have made a "ton of money" JUST ON TESLA volatility swings...daytradin' BOTH SHORT AND LONG...very rapidly...

    I do that on other stuff... if I want more money... but I got other more important stuff to deal with than money;..I can always get money... but their are some things... "money won't buy"...pees me off that I got to "pay so much time" on them... but such is life...

  • yep NOW THINKIN' 10.25 A BARREL...

    big oil really "gonna get a beatin' now....

    jyst wait 'til DEMOCRAT "BERNIE or Hillary get in" ...DEM GONNA WIN OF COURSE...

    AND "OBAMA LEGACY" WILL "CONTINUE" FOR "FOUR MORE...

    THE U.S. will still lead in INNOVATION/BIZ PRACTICES AND MARKETING...

    China is "not much of an innovator" they are more like RUN with "new tech" first BROUGHT INTO PLAY IN THE U.S.... for example: cellphones, computers, social networking, etc.

    basically I'm saying "we are kind of WEEDING OUT or "dropping the valutations" of quite a number of "old hat" more conventional companies...

    some of these like a Johnson and Johnson...WELL NOBODY IS GONNA COME IN AND "TAKE THEIR PLACE" ETC.

    so these ARE CAUTIOUS TIMES... you have to look at "a companies growth potential" IN THESE ROUGH RAPIDLY CHANGING ECONOMIC TIMES...

    then there are the "old standards" ...like a Johnson & Johnson...won't see them declining much anytime in the foreseeable future...

    it's INDIVIDUAL STOCK-PICKING...AND "NOT" ETFS OR FUNDS WITH A "SECTOR BASKET" OR "SELECT OLD DINOSAURS"

    shame the "good companies" like TESLA, NFLX, AMZN, GOOG...get caught in the selloff...BUT THEN AND THINGS GET STABILIZED...and the panic eases up...WELL THEY WILL BE THE "FIRST STOCKS" TO "RECOVER"...some of the "old dinosaurs" DEPENDING ON THEIR POTENTIAL ...won't be INVITED TO THIS "2ND PARTY...so to speak...

    that's about what's going on...

  • flashrob flashrob Feb 8, 2016 11:45 AM Flag

    this mkt action is like a "mkt revaluation"...

    a. herd mentality brings the "whole mkt down in general"

    b. that's because a lot of companies are "part of the OLD paradigm"...and some of those "don't have A BRIGHT FUTURE...they will wane...

    c. the NEW HIGH-FLYERS ...THE BIG ONES ...are like TSLA, GOOG, NFLX, AMZN, FB...and smaller newer companies THAT HAVE INOVATIVE TECH/SOFTWARE/ROBOTICS...med devices...
    ...THESE ARE PART OF THE NEW PARADIGM...these HAVE THE "BEST POTENTIAL FOR REV GROWTH....also evidenced by in a "general large consumer DOWNTURN in the U.S. and Europe and Asia...

    well these companies ALSO GET PULLED DOWN "IN THE PANICKY HERD RETREAT"

    SOME COMPANIES should be going down...they are PART OF THE "OLD DINOSAUR PARADIGM"

    all this "won't happen in a few months/years"...for example GM is part of THIS OLD DINOSAUR PARADIGM...but GM WILL STILL BE WITH US FOR DECADES... because "the NEWER tech which IS STEADILY GAINING GROUND...can't "suddenly produce MILLIONS OF NEW ELEC CARS...ETC.

    so all this takes a while...

    COUPLE A "DOWNTURN IN THESE OLDER DINOSAUR TYPE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION STOCKS" who were consumer dependent...but with "problematic goods/services"...well these MANY OF THEM will decline over time...and be replaced by "growing companies" LIKE "AMZN" in retail...which is heavily hurting "bricks and mortar" and TESLA which will eventually lead the way in putting a big hurting on conventional gas guzzler mfrs...

    there OF COURSE will remain A HUGE BASE of companies WHO MAKE STUFF "LIKE GUARDRAILS, TRAFFIC SIGNALS, FURNITURE...a lot of that won't change that much...these companies are well established ...IT'S JUST THAT "THEY DON'T HAVE "MUCH GROWTH POTENTIAL" in a declining consumer economy...of course CHINA is "ramping UP their "newer DOMESTIC CONSUMER ECONOMY'...so there some mkt potential for them there...though the CHINESE can, for the most part ...SUPPLY THEIR OWN "NEW BASE OF DOMESTIC CONSUMERS...

    THE U.S. will still lead in...

  • when the "mkts cycle" BACK UP...

    THEY WILL BE "LED" by the "high-flyers" ala: TSLA, NFLX, GOOG, FB, BABA, AMZN...etc.

    ........
    shorts like TO POSTURE "as if this were a TSLA issue...this recent pullback"

    all the "high flyers" been takin' a hit...

    ..........
    but AS MORE MONEY "PULLS OUT OF WEAKER OLD DINOSAUR STOCKS" (WHICH IS ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS FOR THE "OVERALL MKT DOWNTURN" ...

    THEN "EVEN MORE MONEY" will PUSH OF THE HIGH-FLYERS...

    because they "have FUTURE POTENTIAL REV GROWTH"... unlike "old dinosaurs like GM...etc."

    some basics:

    a. not likely Elon said he was gonna invent "a helicopter"...
    b. NOTICE the point ELECTRIC...that's very significant...
    c. there are "drones NOW" that are "decades later than the helicopter"
    d. someone HAS PUT TOGETHER A DRONE ...WHICH HE ACTUALLY FLIES WITH...still in basic stages...THIS IS A "VERTICAL TAKEOFF HELICOPTER TYPE DRONE"...

    so ALL THIS "WISHY-WASHY" speculation about "Elon inventin' the helicopter" JUST SHORTS "TRYIN' TO CAST SOME KIND OF "SOUNDBITE TYPE negative innuendo about Elon"...

    typical "short NONSENSE what-if speculation" BY SHORTS..."phony politicians" USE THIS TECHNIQUE as do "most of advertising" ...A "LITTLE BIT OF TRUTH" mixed "with a LARGE HELPING OF "VESTED INTEREST" ...MOSTLY FOR "SELF" BENEFIT...

    like the "old CARNEY-BARKERS" ...sellin' somethin' THAT BY THE TIME YOU "FIGURED YOU BEEN SCAMMED"...well the "carnival HAS LONG MOVED ON"...

    .............
    WELL ELON'S CARS ARE "UNDER WARRANTY" so there ain't much of that possible, etc. etc. etc...

  • flashrob flashrob Feb 7, 2016 1:39 PM Flag

    because TESLA "can't yet produce" TO SELL THAT MUCH IN EUROPE...

    and no point "in startin' to fill that mkt" when YOU CAN ALREADY "SELL EVERYTHING YOU'RE CURRENTLY CAPABLE OF PRODUCING...

    "steady expansion WITHIN THEIR CURRENT CAPABILITIES" is what TESLA is doing...

    their ARE NO "LOTS OF UNSOLD INVENTORY"... and THERE WON'T BE...likely EVER...

    so just "steady annual increase in production" ...then MORE MFR PLANTS...THEN...

    it WAS a test ...YOU "F'N DUMB SHORT"...to see if you shorts "read my posts" and PAY ATTENTION...

    so IT SEEMS YOU DO... which is what I wanted to find out "DUMMY..."

    ......
    all of these conversions and websites global economic statistics THAT YOU SHORTS LIKE TO FANTASIZE ABOUT AND SPIN...

    ARE "BASICALLY ALL AVAILABLE ON THE WEB"...

    yet you "SHORT dummies OFTEN RUN WITH stats" that can be EASILY CHECKED" and found to be EITHER "ERRONEOUS OR ...LARGELY "IRRELEVANT"...

    see HOW "DUMB YOU ARE SHORT" ...MOST OF YOU have been gettin' SUCKED IN and FLEECED out of
    your money FOR OVER "TWO YEARS" now...

    and you haven't IMPROVED yourselves "WITH A LICK OF COMMON SENSE" after all the "regular beatdowns you been gettin'...

    oh well...WHERE WOULD BE without DUMMIES LIKE YOU "TO FLEECE???"

    the BIG-BOYS ...OWN AND or CONTROL most of the stock...

    they "won't LET IT DROP TOO FAR...

    another "amateur SHORT fantasy..."

  • GOOGLE SEARCH this:

    Pump price for gasoline (US$ per liter)

    .....................

    that will give you a site of GASOLINE PRICES WORLDWIDE "BY COUNTRY"

    the prices ARE IN "U.S. DOLLARS PER "LITER"...

    YOU MULTIPLY THAT PRICE BY: 3.78541 ...WHICH IS THE NUMBER OF "LITERS IN A GALLON"

    ........
    a. pay attention to the country this is in ...is it AN UPSCALE TYPE PLACE ...like a western European country or like a Toyko or Singapore...

    or is it backward like "3rd world" ...for example "in Venezuela" THE PRICE OF GASOLINE is about .10 cents a gallon...or at least it was ...when I was thinkin' of goin' expat there...

    or Iraq ...used to be the cheapest at .05 cents a gallon... a few years ago... wouldn't want to live there anyway...so I don't think Elon gonna chase that "kind of mkt, etc."

    ...............
    so just google the website I referenced ...and you can get "up to date gasoline prices" for the forseeable future...

    so thinkin' gas is like 1.92 in the Netherlands...IT'S OVER 6 BUCKS A GALLON...

    1.92 a LITER is probably "what you saw short...AND RAN WITH...WITH OUT CHECKIN' OUT THE DETAILS..

    (A LITER IS SLIGHTLY SMALLER "THAN A "QUART")

    my computer wifi OCCASIONALLY "SLOWS DOWN" ...when the "save file" feature auto-activates...

    "and BRIEF EXCEPTIONS due occur... like "4th of Jul" and Christmas...etc.

    SO "A TESLA PULLBACK" especially since "it's OVERALL MKT DECLINE DRIVEN" is NO BIG DEAL...

    PRETTY SOON "WE'LL BE RAMPIN' BACK UP...with the "high-flyers" LEADIN' THE CHARGE...

    ..............
    just look at THE AMOUNT OF TIME "TESLA SPENDS ABOVE 200" in the last year or so...and the amount of time it spends below 200...

    that's REALITY shorts...

    ...........
    so THIS IS JUST ANOTHER GOOD "BUYIN' OP" ...just watch...

    a. you see declines in mkts ...slowin' down...

    b. then some "keepin up" meanin' THE FREIGHT TRAIN BE "CHANGIN' BACK IT'S DIRECTION"

    c. then THE HIGH-FLYERS be "leadin' THE CHARGE"

    ...THAT BE WAY OF IT...

    OH... MOST OF MY LAST ...GO FOR "TEXASS" TOO...

    except TEXAS...at least got "great GENUINE SOUTHWEST MEXICAN" FOOD...

    ....my brother live in San Antone (but he a transplant stockbroker from up here) big bank/broker ...you would know the name... so he only there because of "big bucks" ...

    I been their ONCE... "but only once" AND THAT WAS "ENOUGH"... "godawful" heat in SUMMER...

    and "now floodin' all over the place"... but he live "high on hill" BUT HE SOMETIMES can't get OFF HILL...because "surrounded by WATER"...but with "hi-tech COMPANY STILL MAKE HIM WORK FROM HOME" ...etc.

    I could live there free...BUT "NO THANKS" ...I stick with "northwestern JERSEY"...it costs a lot more...BUT "WE GOT f'n TREES on OUR HILLS"... (I live in those hills...historic town nearby...f'n beautiful low population density area...view of woods/hills/TREES ALL OVER...outside my window...in fact in every direction from house...plus got maid...my brother don't even have that...although somehow he got "ex-wive to come over regular to clean house" (he an operator...I give him that...I got to pay my maid...)

    one thing "he have to work" ...I don't... so there's that, at least (I sometimes think he feel...life a bit unjust like why "he have to work" and I don't... and he supposedly "doin' all the right stuff/ways to live high-life...I just tell him" people who "he subscribe to...ONLY THINK they know how stuff work in world...etc. etc. etc.

    oh, well I'M not exactly bored today... but enough TIME wasted on "combatting short-drivel" ...

    hey...SUPERBOWL SUNDAY... I'm thinkin' Carolina...but you never know...

    got to do Walmart before that...need some stuff...and since A&P went bankrupt...store on MAINSTREET...well Walmart on top of hill...that be closest big place for grocery...EXCEPT for Shoprite next to it...but that always crowded ...they deliver...but need to get out for "short change of scene" so I probably go to Walmart...

    it SUNDAY anyway...so I ramble on a bit...

    THE "OLD BLUE BOXES" FOR MAKIN' PHONECALLS...

    a. and WHERE IS THAT NOW???

    b. like we don't EVEN MUCH USE LANDLINES... (except people in offices still do for their biz calls)

    c. like I HAVE "UNLIMITED VOICE/DATA/MESSAGING" ON MY CELL plus "hi-speed WIFI" (thanks to Comcast Xfinity...there are hi-speed wifi in almost every built up area...I don't even use "the at&T DATA" unless I'm way out in the "sticks"...got it turned off most of the time" ...does work good whenever there is no wifi signal... tip don't run both at same time...confuses the phone, etc.)

    d. I think we still got a "landline" at home... but I don't even know where that phone is...or the msg recorder...EVERYTHING IS "CELLPHONE" FOR EVERYONE AT MY HOUSE...like I can't hear the "landline" when in my car in the driveway for example...

    SO BLUEBOX EXAMPLE???? typical "thinkin' of you SHORT in the brain types"...

    get WITH THE "NEW TECH STUFF" ...lots of OKIES probably still "got landlines" AT THE "OLD FARMHOUSE, etc." ...

    hey WHY DONTCHA "MOVE THERE" ...so as you "won't SEE "TOO MANY TESLAS" ...besides you BE MOST LIKELY BUSY IN "OKEE-VILLE"...
    ...what WITH ALL THEM "NEW-FANGLED EARTHQUAKES" plus the "flood damage and hailstones" ...I probably wouldn't want a TESLA there anyways... likes "hailstones, earthquakes, flooding rivers" DON'T DISCRIMINATE...ON "WHAT VEHICLES" THEY DAMAGE, ETC.

    yeah...BUT THE PROBLEM FOR GM... "havin' MORE EXPENSIVE RECALLS AND LAWSUITS" ...that erode their profits...

    meantime TESLA keeps "growin' and PLOWIN' THEIR POTENTIAL PROFITS BACK INTO" replacin' GM inevitably...

    why THEN is GM AND FORD stock where it is COMPARED TO TESLA'S STOCK...

    BECAUSE "THE BIG MONEY" INVESTORS ON WALL ST......no "TRUE FINANCIAL REALITY"...

    STOCK SPECULATION ...IS ABOUT THE "FUTURE MOSTLY" ...even concern about "present earnings" ...well if even that was the case ...why is GM stock WHERE IT IS...

    so even "with this TEMP SETBACK in the mkts"...MOSTLY DUE TO "IGNORANT HERD PANIC FACTORS"...well TESLA EVEN AT 160 is "MULTIPLE OF GM STOCK" ...now WHY IS THAT "SHORT???"

    THE "BULK MAJORITY" OF TESLA OWNERS...

    "RARELY" ...GET THAT "YOU DUMB SHORT" ...I'll SAY IT AGAIN... "RARELY HAVE TO USE A SUPERCHARGER STATION...

    because THEIR TESLA "CHARGES UP OVERNIGHT IN THEIR GARAGE"

    TO GO "AND IS GOOD FOR 300 MILES OR SO"...

    even if your a "leadfoot in TRAFFIC CONGESTION AND AT EVERY STOP LIGHT"...

    WHO "COMMUTES 200 MILES" ROUNDTRIP TO WORK... which is mostly when YOU DON'T WANT TO HAVE "TO STOP" ...LIKE AT A GAS-STATION during RUSH HOUR COMMUTING TIMES FOR MOST...

    YOU SHORTS "ACT LIKE EVERYONE HAS NO COMMON SENSE" ...the LOGIC IS SO OBVIOUS...

    ..............
    the small minority of TESLA OWNERS who "need to use a supercharging station" ARE ONLY PROBABLY GONNA DO THAT "WHEN ON VACATION OR A WEEKEND SPIN" ...in which case ...they will probably just be takin' a LUNCHBREAK...and "stretch their legs a bit" before RESUMING THEIR NEXT 300 MILES...

    so your POINT about "supercharging waits" is IRRELEVANT for TESLA...

    in fact the TESLA COMMUTER... don't even have to "waste time and bigger money" STOPPING AT GAS STATIONS..."AT ALL!!!"

    if he gets "nostalgic" for the "smell of gasoline" and WAITING AT THE GAS-PUMP...

    HE CAN "TAKE HIS GUZZLER" once in A GREAT WHILE...

    ..........
    ONE OF THE MAIN THINGS "YOU GUZZLER FANS" seem TO FORGET...

    IS "PEOPLE WHO CAN AFFORD AND HAVE A TESLA" ...like PROBABLY HAVE A "GUZZLER OR TWO or more AT HOME... so like if they have to RUN OUT TO THE CONVENIENCE STORE... AND THE TESLA IS CHARGING...

    WELL THEY "JUST BURN A LITTLE GAS" FOR THE "SHORT MILEAGE TRIP" TO GET MILK OR BREAD...

    ...............
    GET IT "SHORTS" ...when I GET MY TESLA (I'LL STILL HAVE A GUZZLER FOR THAT"...

    the only reason I don't already have a Tesla... is I only "put about 100 miles a month" on my current HYPO-PERFORMANCE-GUZZLER...

    I just have too much to do...and I'm past that stage of "washin' and cleanin' the car every Saturday"...

    I just have too much other stuff to do...if and when I get the time...TESLA is a comin' for me, etc.
