    a contradiction here:

    a. fuel cell vehicles in Japan will carry a hefty premium... so savings are negligible ...if its toward the mass mkt crowd...

    b. like why buy a 30-35k fuel cell... might as well JUST BUY A COROLA OR ALTIMA...etc.

    ............
    THE PEOPLE "WHO ARE IN THE TESLA MKT NICHE" ...want to PLUG IT IN IN THE "GARAGE AT NIGHT"...

    NOT BE DRIVING AROUND "HOPING THE FUEL CELL PLACE" ...that they didn't WANT TO STOP IN ON THE WAY HOME ...BECAUSE IT WAS CROWDED... AND THEY WERE ALREADY "FRUSTRATED IN THE RUSH HOUR TRAFFIC"

    ............
    NOW THE NEXT MORNING...THEY ARE "BLEARY EYED... AND ...HOPING THEY MAKE IT TO THE "FUEL CELL PLACE" ...AND THEN THEY GET THERE and "it's ABOUT AN HOUR LINE" ...

    .......
    GOT ALL THIS "FUEL CELL FAN DUMDUMS"...

    .......
    TESLA guy gets up AND HE IS "READY TO GO 300 PLUS MILES" ...NO "CHARGE STATION WAITS" IN RUSH HOUR TRAFFIC...going to or from work....

    PEOPLE "WHO CAN AFFORD A TESLA ...DON'T REALLY CARE THAT MUCH ABOUT SOME ONE TIME GOV REBATE"

    IT'S "GOT TO BE CONVENIENT ...TOO" ...........GET THAT WORD "SHORTS"

    IT'S A "NEW WORD IN THE TESLA LEXICON OF TESLA ATTRIBUTES".... "CONVENIENT".....CONVENIENT...
    convenient.... C-O-N-V-E-N-I-E-N-T

    ARE YOU "DUMB SHORTS" AND GUZZLER MFRS GETTING THIS THRU YOUR "THICK SKULLS

    probably about 90% of the people who own a Tesla probably won't be doing battery swaps or using Supercharger...

    a. because these people are "plugging in their Tesla" every night when they get home to charge it for the next days commute... all well below the "300 plus mile range of the Tesla"

    b. so 5 days a week most do this... and a weekend spin in the country... that probably won't be "over 300 either"

    c. so maybe one/twice a year...they take Tesla out on longer vacation type trip... and you just do some easy planning and supercharging...

    ............going on vacation NYC to LA...
    I'll FLY CHEAP RT AIRFARE... and "rent a Tesla" from one of those UBER type things...

    afterall...a week to drive to LA from NYC and a week back... YOU WOULD NEED "TO USE UP TWO EXTRA WEEKS OF VACATION TO DO THAT ...PLUS MAYBE 14 DAYS OF MOTELS AT OVER A "HUNDRED A POP"

    .........
    IF YOUR RETIRED "YOU GOT ALL THE TIME TO MOVE ON SUPERCHARGER ROUTES, ETC.

    ...........
    AND WHILE YOUR TESLA is charging... like when I get the AWD SUV ONE...

    WELL I'LL STILL HAVE "MY OLD GUZZLER" OUT IN THE DRIVEWAY if I need to make quick cheap run to "convenience store...

    probably only have to buy "some gasoline for it" about once every few months, etc. NOW...THAT CAR DOESN'T SEE GAS SAVING LIKE THAT... TAKES ABOUT $60 NOW...EVERY TIME I FILL UP IF NEAR EMPTY...

  • flashrob flashrob Jul 18, 2014 4:01 PM Flag

    here's your answer... TESLA could come up with that by just using "insider shares" as collateral for a loan...

    there are many different ways "cross financing" with another big company (something like a stock swap)

    he could do this with "billions" if he needed to...

    when I go to the bank "and want a loan" ...and they say:

    gee...but you don't have a job... you don't have earned income "so than I just show them an out of state bank or somewhere WITH 100 TIMES THE MONEY that I want to borrow...

    a. then I get the loan... and the banker is scratchin' his head because "his dumb rules and thinking" makes him think "everybody must have TO WORK LIKE HIM...

    b. why would I NEED TO BORROW MONEY when I HAVE WAY MORE "ALREADY"...

    c. because DUM-DUM... it may require too much paperwork or it's in an IRA or a foreign country... GOT THAT...lots of reasons "rich people" borrow money...

    simplest of which... LIKE 29% ANNUAL CREDIT CARD INTEREST MEANS "NOTHING TO ME" ...SINCE ON A GOOD DAYTRADING WEEK I MAKE 29% ON THE BORROWED MONEY...got that...

    I make money with "my money" AND BORROW MORE and make money with "their money" AND GIVE THEM their "low interest rate cut"...

    they could be like me... not work... and make lots... BUT THEY DON'T GET "HOW YOU MANIMPULATE" MONEY... so I guess "they should keep their job...and their dumb thinking "like Tesla shorts" on this board...

    but the way "I'm a huge frequent SHORTER myself ...BUT NOT ON STOCKS LIKE TESLA...

    I short the other "garbage conventional number cruncher stocks" like the ones going down BECAUSE THEIR REVS KEEP DROPPING IN THE GLOBAL RECESSION...easy to see they are steadily LOSING MKT SHARE...because of consumer decline (they can keep earnings up for a few quarters because of COST CUTTING LAYOFFS...but you can only "stretch that technique out so long" before it's over...

    and then your "inflated stock price tumbles" THAT'S WHAT YOU SHORT... and you do it with OPTIONS for leverage... pretty easy all this...

    so I wouldn't be worried about the "back-burner side issue of TESLA earnings at this point in the game"

    I'd be worried if I was a conservative investor in "big guzzler"

    a. huge RECALLS...LAWSUITS...fast becoming obsolete "chain supply" of ICE auto parts...huge pension liabilities....

    b. LIKELY POTENTIAL OF "RISING GASOLINE PRICES" because of the "mid-east" and all those DIFFERENCT FACTIONS fighting each other...plus "maybe the back-and-forth control or military targeting/destruction of MID-EAST OILFIELDS... and maybe you think WE GOT OIL ... - remember the global pricing of OIL is based on TOTAL SUPPLY AVAILABILITY... if there is a "big decline in MID-EAST OIL being "consistently available, etc." THE PRICE OF GLOBAL OIL will "ramp up" BIG TIME... AND THAT MEANS "GASOLINE PRICES" GO UP "BIG TIME TOO"...doesn't GUZZLER NEED "GASOLINE"...NOT LOOKIN' GOOD FOR GUZZLER....

    BUT "LOOKIN' BETTER AND BETTER FOR TESLA"...

    so earnings at this time IS A "small POTATOES issue" ...compared to the "guzzler competition's ISSUES...

    earnings with TESLA "at this state of their ramping up worldwide takeover of the auto industry"

    are a "secondary BACK-BURNER ISSUE..."

    BIG MONEY "ALREADY PLACED THEIR BET ON TESLA"...AND ELON...and his other companies Solar City, and SpaceX ...they'll RAMP WAY UP TOO... but TESLA is Elon's CENTER-STAGE offering for now...

    so EARNINGS "just aren't a big-deal AT THIS STAGE OF THE GAME...

    like when Henry Ford UNSEATED THE "HORSEY SET" ...IT TOOK A WHILE (YEARS) before HE COULD SHOW "REAL PROFITS" vs. his "intial capital investment"

    TO HAVE "FORD'S MASS PRODUCTION INNOVATIVE PUSH... BEGGAR THE "ENTIRE VESTED INTEREST "HORSEY BOYS"...

    where are they now??? seen any "stagecoaches" lately (maybe at Universal Studios in Cali)...

    or "milkwagons" or blacksmiths, or stables... THEIR STILL ARE A FEW "BUT THEY AIN'T HEAVILY INVESTED IN... especially by the "VESTED INTEREST HORSEY SET"...who LOST THEIR SHIRTS AND PANTS, TOO....

    it IS RELATED...

    a. because spaceX has to do with Elon not depending on Tesla for money... try that

    b. IS THE "PRICE OF OIL" unrelated to TESLA ....ALSO??? (like the price of gas)

    c. are "economic and pollution" issues in China unrelated...

    d. are "bubbapubs" (and how they do in TEXAS elections) unrelated??? those are the "car dealer buddies, etc."

    so MY POINT is - though it may SEEM unrelated to you... IS THAT IS "RELEVANT AND RELATED TO TESLA"...YOU HAVE TO SEE THE "BIGGER PICTURE...

    like Russia supplying U.S. "space engines" ...THAT WILL HIT THE DUMPER with this Malaysian shoot-down...

    So, MORE SWING TO "SPACE X"....is a "no brainer"

  • a. we all know Solar City is looking good...

    b. we all know Tesla is DOING FABULOUS...

    c. and HERE'S WHAT I SEE COMING...

    1. when the IPO comes out on spaceX ....it's gonna go thru the roof...

    2. spaceX is already being used to successfully supply the Intl Space Station (took over from NASA)

    3. AND NOW "IT'S LOOKS LIKE RUSSIA gonna be takin' SOME "HUGE HEAT for the Malaysian Airliner issue...

    SO "POLITICALLY and economically PUTTIN' PUTIN FEET IN FIRE... well THAT MEANS "VAST POLICTICAL SUPPORT FOR "SPACE X"...

    so IT'S COMIN' (and of course the 3 companies will have quite a bit of CROSSOVER, etc.)

    so here come "that FUTURE...

    oil refineries ARE NATURALLY "PRIME TARGETS" of "opposing military forces"

    meaning WITH THE WHOLE MIDEAST ...uncertainty ALL THESE "SEPARATE CONFLICTS"

    a. Russia vs. Ukraine (EU)
    b. Syria's Assad vs. fundamentalists
    c. Iraq (Sunni ISSA vs Shia (former U.S. backed)
    d. some stuff going on in Libya
    e. Israel vs. Palestinians in Gaza
    f. Iraq vs. Iran

    not to forget VENEZUELA... "big chunk of OIL there..." "middle class Teaparty like Repub biz types VS. poorer and lower-classes (legacy of former Chavez NATIONALIZATION of "western oil operations and profits from Venezuela)

    NO ..."IT DON'T LOOK GOOD FOR "BIG OIL"

    yeah we got some BUT GLOBAL SUPPLIES ARE SHAKY ...because WHO GOING TO BE CONTROLLING THEM NEXT WEEK/MONTH/YEAR...

    Russia has a lot of OIL ...but with the "Malaysian Plane thing...not lookin' TOO GOOD FOR THEM...well that has big impacts on their oil exports...

    Iraq/Iran/Israel... AND IF THEY STARTING "LOBBING MISSILES AT EACH OTHERS "OILFIELDS" AND ELEC UTILITIES... (typical type MILITARY tactic...

    well IT ALL AIN'T LOOKIN' "TOO PROMISING FOR THE "AVAILABILITY AND STABILITY OF THE PRICE OF OIL...

    .....MEANING "GASOLINE PRICES" likely TO RAMP UP "BIG TIME"....WORLDWIDE....

    plus here is U.S. POLS ARE BROKE IN MOST STATE GOVS...AND FED GOV TOO...SO "WANT PUT HEFTY TAX INCREASE ON GASOLINE...ONCE THAT STARTS...THE "MILK THAT COW FOR DECADES....''

    ANYWAY...ABOUT LIKE THAT "IS MY TAKE"....

  • here's the SIMPLE REALITY...

    TESLA'S "ACTUALLY HAS SUPERCHARGER STATIONS" ALL OVER THE WORLD and particularly in the U.S. at this time "

    a. Tesla has "over one hundred charging stations already built...

    b. imagine if "one franchize biz" ...say a McDonalds was competing with a BurgerKing...

    c. Now imagine that McDonalds ALREADY HAD A NETWORK "IN PLACE" of existing FULLY FUNCTIONING restaurant locations across the country ...

    d. and that BurgerKing HAD A HANDFUL ...

    e. NOW IMAGINE THE COST AND "TIME-LAG" OF in this case BurgerKing TRYING TO COMPETE with McD's on "NATIONAL SALES"...GET IT...

    f. any POTENTIAL COMPETITOR for "supercharging" is SO FAR BEHIND TESLA...and TESLA is "not slowing down" THEY ARE BECOMING THE "MCDONALDS" OF SUPERCHARGING...

    it's EASY TO SAY ...well someone WILL DO OR COME UP WITH SOMETHING ELSE... the COMPETITION TO TESLA has "YET" to even "agreed to standards" and types of charging...

    plus the HUGE EXPENSE AND COMPLEXITY...leasing/buying land...elec utilities...gov/state regulation...etc.

    SO IT'S A "NO-BRAINER"... by the time ANY COMPETITION COMES UP WITH SOMETHING... it will be LIKE SOME "NEW FAST-FOOD BRAND ...trying to go "HEAD TO HEAD with already ESTABLISHED AND ALL OVER THE PLACE MCDONALD'S FRANCHISES...

    SEE THE "COMMON SENSE" OF MY ARGUMENT ...IT'S "TOO LATE FOR THE COMPETITION..."THEY ALREADY "LOST" TO TESLA....

  • flashrob flashrob Jul 17, 2014 2:56 PM Flag

    get that "dumb earnings" #$%$ OUT OF YOUR NUMBER CRUNCHING HEAD... YOU DUMB SHORTS...

    if it was EVER ABOUT "IMMEDIATE EARNINGS" IN THIS "TESLA SWEEP OF THE WORLD"...TESLA WOULDN'T HAVE EVER "WENT OVER 200"

    investors are in this NOT FOR IMMEDIATE EARNINGS... BUT FOR "STEADY STATE TAKING OVER THE WORLD BY PURE ELEC QUALITY, LUXURY...PERFORMANCE ELECTRIC VEHICLE...

    GOT THAT SHORTS... "it's NOT ABOUT EARNINGS" AT THIS TIME (IT IS FOR A GM, FORD, OTHER WELL ESTABLISHED GUZZLER..."BUT NOT FOR TESLA" in these EARLY STAGES...

    IT'S "THAT SIMPLE WITH TESLA STOCK"....

    APPLY THAT "EARNINGS NUMBER-CRUNCHING YARDSTICK TO A GM, FORD, TOYOTA...the rest of the "guzzler crowd, etc."

    it's RELATIVELY MEANINGLESS with respect to TESLA at this stage of the game...

    the game wherein YOU HAVE A RINGSIDE SEAT TO SEE "TESLA" UNDERMINE ALMOST "ALL GAS GUZZLER MANUFACTURING...WORLDWIDE....

  • worried about the "price of TESLA stock" are you Alpha writer???

    what YOU SHOULD BE ASKING... "IS IT PANIC-TIME FOR "BIG GUZZLER"...

    like GM with their "tens of millions" of RECALLS... plus HUGE LAWSUITS...

    ...and dumb conservative "misled by feelgood conventional analyst NUMBER CRUNCHERS" ...that keeps gm (other guzzler) stock "afloat" somewhat...IN THE FACE OF DEVASTATING "BOTTOM LINE REALITY"...

    how long before "THESE MISLED INVESTORS" ARE GONNA LOSE FAITH IN GM, and the rest of the "guzzler crowd"...

    and NOT RECOGNIZE THE "HUGE GROWTH POTENTIAL PARADIGM SHIFT" OF TESLA... which is based on "THE WAVE into THE PURE EV FUTURE" INTO
    "HIGH QUALITY LUXURY, PERFORMANCE...AND "SAVING BIG-TIME ON EVEN HIGHER GASOLINE PRICES IN THE FUTURE... (which BIG MONEY WALL ST FUNDS...ALREADY KNOW and that's why they OWN 2/3 OF TESLA STOCK...AND WILL KEEP THE PRICE UP...think they are gonna let a "collection of "spin-doobie-dumb" shorts...determine THE VALUE OF TESLA...

    the biggest cults ARE "DUMB NUMBER CRUNCHING" theories...

    AND CHINA "that ADVOCATES GROWTH TYPE POTENTIAL"....well despite "all the NUMBER CRUNCHING forecast for failure "by western vested interest FINANCIAL NUMBER CRUNCHERS"

    CHINA has been "enjoying a GDP OF OVER 7%" all during the global recession IN THE REALM OF THE "OH SO GREAT NUMBER CRUNCHER U.S. AND EUROPEAN ECONOMIES"

    the WEST would consider GDP OF 7%...highly inflationary... SO "SO MUCH FOR THE BRILLIANCE OF THE "DUMB U.S. AND EUROPEAN TYPE ECB NUMBER CRUNCHERS...

    CHINA IS "REALITY OF FUTURE "GREAT GROWTH POTENTIAL VISION"

    think about all this...TOO BAD FOR GUZZLER ...THEY ARE GOING TO "LOSE AGAIN"...

    to BIG GUZZLER "better scrap this DUMB IDEA" of going against TESLA with this "hydrogen fuel cell" potential...IT WOULD WORK IN A "VERY LIMITED WAY" SIMILAR TO THE WAY IN WHICH "EDISON'S DC ELECTRIFICATION" MIGHT HAVE WORKED...

    BUT IT IS "TOO INEFFECTIVE AND COSTLY A CONCEPT" WHEN TESLA "ALREADY HAS A MUCH BETTER, CHEAPER AND "SAFER SYSTEM" then even "liquid gasoline" vehicles ...which were very good UP UNTIL "TESLA CAME ALONG WITH AN EVEN"

    BETTER, CHEAPER...........SAFER...........and MORE ECONOMICAL ......AND HEALTHIER FOR OUR "LUNGS AND ENVIRONMENT SYSTEM...

    TOYOTA ...and other BIG GUZZLERS... better DROP THIS "DC LIKE EDISON" IDEA...

    GO BACK ...AND REINSTATE THEIR "RAV 4" LIKE IDEA ...OF PARTNERING WITH TESLA...

    AND THE BIG GUZZLERS "THAT DO THIS DEAL WITH TESLA" WILL SHOW THEIR SMARTS... AND NOT BE "LED ASTRAY" BY THIS "INEFFICIENT HYDROGEN FUEL CELL TECH" JUST BECAUSE "THEY HATE THE FACT THAT TESLA"

    OUTDID THEM ALL... IT'S ABOUT LIKE THAT... GOING FORWARD...

    SO WATCH THIS "HYDROGEN FUEL CELL THING" BACKFIRE BIG TIME... ON THOSE WHO "TRY TO GO WITH AN EDISON LIKE DC IDEA" AGAINST THE BETTER "AC ELECTRIFICATION IDEA OF TESLA...

    WE KNOW "HOW THAT STORY" TURNED OUT...

  • this is like the "old bs paradigm thing of ELECTRIFICATION back in the early "twentieth century"...

    their really wasn't much of an argument about the need for electrification and moving away from candles, kerosene lamps to light your homes, etc.

    the argument was about "who system was going to be adopted and prevail"...

    a. on one side was "brilliant inventor THOMAS EDISON" ...who advocated DC electrification and had a lot of VESTED INTEREST VENTURE CAPITAL BACKING... he had credibility because of his "other great inventions, etc." and he had many BIG CONNECTIONS AND DEALINGS with the POWER VENTURE CAPITALIST TYPES...

    b. on the other side...you had NIKOLA TESLA (an employee of Edison) WHO CAME UP WITH "AC electrification"...

    c. the DIFFERENCE WAS... the "BETTER IDEA" was AC ELECTRIFICATION...
    ...DC ELECTRIFICATION ...could WORK FOR SHORT DISTANCES like "no more than a hundred miles" AND WOULD BE VERY INEFFICIENT AND COSTLY...

    d. but the RUB WAS... EDISON WAS A "BIG EGOTIST" AND DIDN'T LIKE THE FACT that TESLA'S IDEA for electrification WAS FAR SUPERIOR AND MUCH CHEAPER...and "didn't have THE HUNDRED MILE LIMIT...

    e. SO WHO WHO... TESLA OBVIOUSLY ...much to the "chagrin of Edison and ALL HIS VENTURE CAPITALIST BUDDIES...

    f. George Westinghouse CAME IN AND SUPPORTED TESLA ...and they did the NIAGARA FALLS POWER GENERATION based on TESLA'S AC electrification... AND NOT "EDISON'S DC weak system, etc."

    g. so even THOUGH "EDISON gave us "many other brilliant inventions" light the LIGHTBULB AND MOTION PICTURE PROJECTOR...etc.

    EDISON "was DEAD WRONG" about ELECTRIFICATION USING "DC SYSTEM"....

    AND SO IS "GAS GUZZLER" thinking HYDROGEN FUEL CELL...

    some limits of fuel cell thinking (similar to the BIG BOYS thinking DC was better because it WAS PROMOTED BY EGOTISTICAL "EDISON"...

    more continuation coming...
