  • wish Y would keep up with the numbers... I can get them off "naz directly" if needed...

  • THIS IS "INCREASINGLY GOOD NEWS FOR TESLA"... (more PURE EV entrants to the global mkts...)

    a. the USUAL HYPE ...by guzzler...that TESLA IS GONNA have "new competitors"...WHAT A "CROC!"

    b. in REALITY... ramping up ADDITIONAL PURE EV CARS... just STRENGTHENS TESLA'S "eating MORE of "big guzzlers pie..."

    c. ALMOST ALL of these "LOWER PRICED OFFERINGS "MORE LIKE KANDI" ...WHICH "DON'T HURT TESLA"...BUT THEY DO "HURT BIG GUZZLERS LOWER-END "MASS MKT ICE VEHICLES" ...so "more and more" PRODUCTION of these "lower-end pure EV's"...

    it's AS SIMPLE AS... "the INTRODUCTION of classic ICE honda civics DON'T IMPACT "CARS AT THE LEVEL OF A PORSCHE...

    a. lots of people BUY CIVICS ...and who does THAT IMPACT... It impacts the "lower-end offerings" OF ALL THE REST OF THE "MASS COMPETING GUZZLER MFRS" ...WORLDWIDE...

    b. the "guy who buys a PORSCHE" is STILL GONNA BUY A PORSCHE (well to be completely honest... lots of "PORSCHE BUYER TYPES" WILL "NOW BE BUYING A "TESLA D"... INSTEAD...

    ...so TESLA IS ACTUALLY "EATING THE PIE" OF THE "BIG-GUZZLER LUXURY/PERFORMANCE MKT NICHE"

    c. all this IS "SO TRANSPARENT" ...BIG-GUZZLER is gonna get a "butt-kickin" INCREASINGLY "IN ALL MKTS" ...BOTH "HIGH END LIKE PORSCHE" and "LOW END... like KANDI...

    same "old hype spin" by "big-guzzler fans" ...TRYING TO "MISDIRECT AND CONFUSE THE AVERAGE INVESTOR... "but a bit of COMMON SENSE" dispels the "big-guzzler LOSING vested interest HYPE!"

    SO "TESLA SALES IN CHINA"...WILL BE "HUGE"...

(be be try to keep below ONE MILLION...and with all cars we make... you consumer got "SOME odds" ...THAT YOU "NOT BE DUMMY" who get "one of those"...and if you do ...that BE ON YOU...you musta have "bad karma..." (we got mkt team be studying that NEW AGE karma thing...we gettin' SAVVY with that... "because GIVE UP "HUGE NEW LOOPHOLE" goin' forward... like: ANYPROBLEM YOU GOT WITH "YOUR GUZZLER" ...that be "YOUR BAD KARMA" ....and "don't be blamin' GUZZLER, cetera...

    ......
    me, when I get choice on HULU for "select a type commercial" ...LIKE "PICK ONE OUTTA 3"

    I BE PICKIN' "MCDONALDS OR WENDY'S" ... 'stead of GUZZLER BULLSPIN COMMERICAL...

    the one's who are gonna "sell for tax reasons" already did so in NOV... because of the repurchase rule...

    the REST know the "stock is gonna KEEP CLIMBIN" ...so there's NO POINT IN SELLIN'...

  • flashrob flashrob Dec 17, 2014 10:01 AM Flag

    your presumption...

    some DUMBIE "NUMBER CRUNCHER ANALYST" ...IS HAVINGE A "FANTASY" ...AGAIN...

    AND "PROJECTING DUMB FORECAST" of TESLA SALES DECLINE DUE TO "TEMP LOW OIL PRICES"

    ...AND THEN THE "JUST AS DUMB SHORTS" ...RUN WITH THIS "FANTASY SPECULATION" OF SOME

    "VESTED INTEREST NEGATIVE ANALYST" ...as IF IT'S "A FACT"....

    ...........
    a. people DON'T BUY TESLAs ...because of the "price of gas" ...

    b. saving money on gas... is important...BUT NOT MUCH TO THE PEOPLE "WHO BUY TESLAS"...

    c. the SAME GOES FOR PURCHASERS "OF 500 PLUS HP GUZZLERS"
    ...if your buying "that kind of car" ...OBVIOUSLY ...fuel economy IS "NOT A BIG ISSUE TO YOU..."

    SO "WE GET ANOTHER ROUND OF THE "LASTEST LOSER HOKUM from "vested interest" supporters of guzzler...

    ...........
    keep "trying guys"... YOUR DUMB "FORECASTS/ANALYSIS/SPECULATION/..."WISHFUL THINKIN'
    OF THE "LOSING GUZZLER CROWD"...

    well, you KEEP PLENTY OF "DUMB SHORTS" making TESLA LONGS..."RICH!"

  • flashrob flashrob Dec 16, 2014 4:44 PM Flag

    listen to this "piker" on this board... at "your peril..."

    haven't YOU really figured out "that the short dolts" here DON'T RUN THINGS...like look at their advice FOR THE LAST TWO YEARS...

    haven't you figured out "that the seesawing of the mkt"...and how were at 17k ...when global economic factors indicate we should be at "maybe 7k"...

    you just don't GET IT DO YOU?

    well, I'm not going to tell you... you shorts are like the Repub Party... no matter "what they do" or "what kind of majority" ...they have...THEY STILL LOSE... AND LOSE... AND LOSE...

    and WHY IS THAT? ...because they think "they are the POWERS THAT BE"... bad mistake on their part...

  • once FOCUS shifts to RETAIL UNEXPECTED BONANZA...due "temp cheap oil"...THEN DOW/NAZ back UP...and

    the HIGH-FLYERS...will be "biggest gainers"

    ........great BUYING OP because of this ...IN "ALL HIGH FLYERS"...but especially TESLA... and Solar City...

    OH... "GOOD BUYIN' OP" ...AT THESE "SKITTERISH PRICES"...

    BIG OIL... "GETTIN' THE FRACKIN' OF THEIR LIVES!"

    ...BUT GUESS WHO ...GONNA BE "BUYIN' UP BANKRUPT AND WEAK "FRACKERS???"

    .............
    PROBABLY "LIKE "EXXON" ....got that... the BIG OIL COMPANIES... will buy up the "frackers" FOR .10 CENTS ON A DOLLAR...OR SOMESUCH...

    THEN THEY CAN "RAISE THE PRICE OF OIL..............AS USUAL......"

    see HOW this game played...

    ...............
    so enjoy "LITTLE SHORT-LIVED" CHEAP GAS PRESENT... FOR "CHRISTMAS"...

    ..............
    NEXT YEAR... "BACK UP GO OIL BIG-TIME"

    who lose in this.....

    original investors in "frackin'

    ..............
    who WIN BIG.............big AMERICAN OIL (like Exxon)

    because THEY BOUGHT UP "FRACKERS for .10 cents on a DOLLAR...and can NOW sell THE FRACKED OIL...VERY CHEAP...

    BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T have to DO "ALL THE EXPENSIVE INITIAL SETUP...."

    BUT THIS "KIND OF STRATEGY" is probably "too complicated" FOR "MINDS THAT KEEP COMING "UP SHORT!"

  • a. maybe YOU THINK "GUZZLER GOT A WINDFALL WITH CHEAP OIL AND GAS..."

    b. DON'T "COUNT ON IT"...

    it WILL BE "REVENUE TARGET NUMBER ONE OF THE POLS (both Dem and Repub...got empty state coffers THEIR "TROUGH" is startin' to DRY UP..)

    MEANING: YOU GONNA GET "HUGE NEW TAX ON GASOLINE" ...PROBABLY LIKE A "BUCK A GALLON" ..

    this WILL BE ONE THING THE "POLS - both Dem and Pub WILL AGREE ON ...a real "demontration of TRUE BI-PARTISANSHIP...(kind of like when THEY "COST OF LIVING PAYRAISE COMES UP"....just gets "passed" with EASY MAJORITY OF "BOTH DEMS AND REPUBS"...with "few want to make it look good BY VOTING AGAINST...(knowin' ALL THE WHILE ...that it gonna pass "unanimously...

    so CHEAP GAS...not for LONG.... dumb shorts....

    the ONLY CHANCE THE "DUMB PUBS HAVE IN 2016"

    ...IS TO "FIND A "BLACK-WOMAN IN THE REPUB PARTY"....they ought to be able to "find one of those RARE anomalies... preferably "if she got SOME "LATINO-BLOOD"...

    then "they might be able to RUN HER AGAINST:

    a. Hillary
    b. or Elizabeth Warren

    one of those probably be the DEM candidate...

    .............like in "two years" Tesla Supercharger Stations... will probably be like "electric HESS type gas stations"...ALL OVER..

    AND ...ALL THOSE "GUZZLER MFRS" ...will have to over CHARGING RECEPTACLES "ON THEIR "TESLA S TYPE CARS"... AND "TESLA WILL BE THE ONLY LARGE SCALE "SUPERCHARGING NETWORK..."GLOBALLY..."

    well "get used to THE NEW "REV GROWTH" way of evaluating companies...

    that's why COMPANIES like AMZN... with 5x Tesla's MKT CAP... don't show much profit... BUT JUST KEEP "EATIN' HUGE CHUNKS" OF "outfits that got CONSIDERABLE "BRICKS AND MORTAR" OPS, etc.

    good-earnings MEAN SQUAT...if they are "due to downsizing, reduced mkt share, competitors having a negative issue...

    it's ALL ABOUT "REV GROWTH AND EXPANSION"...THAT'S WHAT COUNTS...(and Wall St. knows this...and that's why the "hi-fliers" ARE THE "HIGH-FLYERS!"

    oh...AND OF "COURSE" ...TESLA ...too

    I would feel "safest WITH THIS "AUTO STUFF" IN A TESLA... simply because EVEN IN LUXURY CARS...TESLA is "a bit more ATTENTIVE TO FINE-TUNING" and makin' sure "things work" ... EVEN BETTER THAN COMPETITIVE "LUXURY CAR MFRS"...

    TESLA may not "be perfect" - NOBODY IS - so, everybody has an "occasional hiccup on an issue"... IT JUST SEEMS TO ME THAT "TESLA" has "a lot less of those negative hiccups, THAT SEEM "PAR FOR THE COURSE" WITH "MANY BIG GUZZLER MFRS," etc....(especially ones with MORE RECALL ISSUES than cars they produce on total for a year, etc.

  • MOST people are under the ILLUSION that "falling oil prices" ARE A BONANZA FOR "BIG GUZZLER CARS"

    "NOT TRUE"... yeah, a bit in the U.S. FOR THE TIME BEING... but then WHEN THE "GOV" raises GASOLINE TAXES ...AND THEY WILL... startin' later this winter... (LIKE PARTICULARLY "STATE GOV COFFERS" ARE are practically empty... most of that "temporary UNTIL AFTER CHRISTMAS RETAIL... GIVE THE "LITTLE-GUY" A "LITTLE BREAK" ...

    well when CHRISTMAS SEASON SALES ARE OVER"...(BACK UP WE GO IN GASOLINE PRICES...even if OIL PRICES ...continue to decline for a while...

    try this article ABOUT GAS PRICES "CURRENTLY IN IRELAND" which is a EURO currency user and part of the European Union...

    GASOLINE PRICES IN IRELAND - CURRENTLY HAVE DROPPED ABOUT ".50 CENTS A GALLON" ...so ...SHORTY might think... well with a 28% drop in the price of oil... $8.00 A GALLON EUROPEAN PRICES FOR GASOLINE - using simpleton extrapolation" would mean that PRICES FOR GASOLINE IN IRELAND SHOULD HAVE DROPPED "OVER $2. A GALLON... but they didn't THEY ONLY DROPPED .50 CENTS... and Europe will probably "eat that up with a gasoline tax increase" like OUR STATE GOVS will be doing here in the U.S.

    that's because...all these POLS worldwide... HAVE PRETTY EMPTY COFFERS... for their "pol spending" etc. (and gasoline tax - SINCE "JOE SIX PACK" IS ACCLIMATED TO "HIGH PRICES"...WELL THAT'S WILL BE "TARGET NUMBER ONE" ...to raise "money to fund all these POLS "throw money around PORK-BILL type spending...for them and their LOBBY BUDDIES, etc...

    anyway GOOGLE THIS:

    despite-fall-oil-costs-pump-prices-remain-aa-blog/

    and as "Ireland" is pretty representative of "gasoline pump prices" for most of the EU COUNTRIES (NORWAY is even $10. a gallon...20% higher than the rest of Europe... even though they HAVE A LOT OF THEIR OWN OIL... GO FIGURE...)

    SO GOOGLE THIS FOR SOME REALITY:

    despite-fall-oil-costs-pump-prices-remain-aa-blog/

    ...so EUROPE will still HAVE "many switching to TESLA" - as fast as Elon can make them -
