    so YOU suddenly "know MORE than "all the BIG MONEY PROS AT funds like FIDELITY???

    WAKE UP TO REALITY... WHO DO YOU THINK HAS "OWNED MOST OF THE FLOAT" FOR THE PAST TWO YEARS???

  • flashrob flashrob Jan 23, 2015 6:39 PM Flag

    FIDELITY "JUST BY THEMSELVES" HAS "OVER A "BILLION DOLLARS OF TESLA STOCK"...

    LOOK IT UP RIGHT THERE ON "ON MAJOR FUND HOLDERS" ...right on the statistics off the Yahoo TESLA stock page...

    GET SOME "COMMON SENSE" AND LOOK AT SOME "OBVIOUS STATISTICS" ...instead of "such IRRESPONSIBLE AND DUMB HYPE....

  • flashrob flashrob Jan 23, 2015 6:41 PM Flag

    HIGH-FLYERS AND THEIR "STOCK VALUATIONS" ARE BASED ON "FUTURE POTENTIAL" ...not some "dumb stale number crunching" by shorts...

  • flashrob flashrob Jan 23, 2015 6:43 PM Flag

    FOR BIG GAINS IN THE MKT "LIKE TESLA" YOU BET ON "GREAT FUTURE REV GROWTH POTENTIAL... NOT "OLD DINOSAURS LIKE GM...

    SAME THING GOES FOR "BIG OIL"...

    BETTER THESE DUMP PUB POLS... START BUILDING "WATER PIPELINES" INSTEAD OF "OBSOLETE OIL" STUFF...

    this stock IS A WINNER... going forward...

    (I AM THE "BIGGEST POSTER ON THE "TESLA Yahoo stockboard" for well over a year...)

    and I will "write" about this stock ...in the future...

    I am a "paid subscriber" to this site... mainly because the "best knowledge "in the world" about QUANTUM PHYSICS" - on "Gaiam TV" - is available on this site... along with many other great "shows" and offerings...

    I'll get more into some of that... in later posts when I get the time...

  • 15 pubs kinda jumped ship and almost passed "legislation" that admitted that "global warming" had a "manmade factor" to it...

    here's what I posted:

    so you "pubs" don't get "too confused by this GLOBAL WARMING ISSUE..."

    I'll lay it out for you "very simply" with a "scientific test THAT EVEN YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO... to prove... "it's just common sense..."

    a. put a PURE ELECTRIC VEHICLE (Tesla S...for example) IN A TYPICAL 2 CAR GARAGE... start the motor...now "sit on a chair in that garage, with the doors closed... "you following me PUBS???"

    ...after about a half-hour of sitting there in that "closed two-car garage" with the TESLA CAR RUNNING... get up and shut the car off, and back it out of the garage...

    b. NOW PUT a "typical INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE" car in the garage...start the car... sit in the CHAIR...WITH THE CAR RUNNING AND THE DOORS CLOSED...
    ...WANT TO DO THIS TEST "YOU DUMB PUBS???"
    ...oh! ... CALL 911 ...and give them your address, and tell them what you are doing... YOU GETTING THIS "YOU DUMB PUBS"..

    c. SOME CONCLUSIONS about this "basic logical experiment..."

    1. the GARAGE will "warm up a bit in temperature" IN BOTH CASES WITH BOTH CARS...got that "dumb pubs???"

    ...BUT I THINK "BY NOW" you should have a "lightbulb" going OFF IN YOUR HEAD!!!

    2. the "degree of warming" is THE MINOR ISSUE... it's the "pollution" you dumb pubs...

    (see part 2 of this post, con't

  • flashrob flashrob Jan 26, 2015 5:07 PM Flag

    2. the "degree of warming" is THE MINOR ISSUE... it's the "pollution" you dumb pubs...

    living in a "major city" like NYC ...well the "pollution generated by gasoline/diesel burning vehicles" ...impacts YOUR LUNGS as "if you SMOKED TWO PACKS OF CIGARETTES A DAY"...(and that's if you don't smoke!!!)
    ...so IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT "QUIBBLING ABOUT THE DEGREE OF GLOBAL WARMING"...the "undeniable issue" is THE POLLUTION FACTOR... like in "lung damage" ...unecessary HEALTH CARE COSTS... for "millions of CITY RESIDENTS" in cities all over the globe...(you PUBS claim you want to reduce health-care costs... forget Obamacare... AND GET ON one of the "real big issues" that is causing "mucho rising in health-care costs, etc."

    (by the way MOST INDUSTRY is now out in the "suburbs"...SO MOST "AIR POLLUTION IN CITIES" is DUE TO "GAS/DIESEL GUZZLER VEHICLE POLLUTION!!!")

    there wasn't much we could do before VEHICLES like TESLA S and the Nissan Leaf... made "pure electric vehicles" practical... BUT NOW THAT WE HAVE THAT TECHNOLOGY... we SHOULD BE PHASING OUT "GAS/DIESEL VEHICLES" (and their "lung damaging POLLUTION" as "fast as we possibly can..."

  • flashrob flashrob Jan 26, 2015 5:08 PM Flag

    had to do a part 3...

    so it's NOT JUST ABOUT "global warming" which you can "conjecture about" a bit...THEIR "IS NO CONJECTURE ABOUT LUNG DAMAGING POLLUTION"...
    ...as I illustrated in my "garage running vehicle example"...

    SO YOUR "STANCE ON THIS ISSUE" IS "NOT JUST ABOUT how much of global warming is "man-made"... THE "HEALTHCARE COST associated with "upper respiratory and lung damage" IS WHAT YOU SHOULD BE FOCUSED ON ...for the "tens of millions of CITY RESIDENTS in the U.S...

    get "focused" on that PUBS...

  • flashrob flashrob Jan 27, 2015 5:17 PM Flag

    existing "power generation" like COAL, OIL, NUCLEAR... will all be "replaced by GREEN ENERGY METHODOLIGIES... LIKE "SOLAR PANELS"...

    THEN "THERE WILL BE VIRTUALLY NO POLLUTION..."

    also... the "energy used to CURRENTLY PROVIDED TO POWER A TESLA..."
    is already in place... so just "conserve home-elec utility" use a fraction... AND YOU POWER YOUR TESLA WITH THAT...

    day by day, week by week... BIG GUZZLER AND BIG OIL... continually "LOSE TRACTION"...because just like the:

    a. electrification of the WORLD ...replacing "kerosene lamps" and "candles" THIS CHANGE IS "INNVEVITABLE"...NOTICE "SHORT" I DIDN'T SAY "MAYBE" ... I SAID "INNVEVITABLE"

    so those "in denial" ...ESPECICALLY THOSE WHO HAVE VESTED INTERESTS... ARE "GOING TO "INNVEVITABLY LOSE"...
    I'M EVEN SORRY ABOUT SOME OF THIS... but "unfortunately" YOU CAN'T GO "BACK TO THE PAST"... except in "temporary resistance to REALITY"...

    you are not "battling a LONG HERE" ...you are arguing with "an objective REALIST" who just happens to be BETTER THAN ALMOST ANYONE at "seeing the PROBABLE FUTURE...
    ...YOU ARE TRYING TO FIGHT THE "BASIC PHILOSOPHICAL PRINCIPLE OF "INNEVITABLE CHANGE"...

    yes, I wish I could be "in my twenties again" RUNNIN' AROUND "partying, carefree, thinking and doing STUPID-STUFF... but invevitably... REALITY KEEPS "SOBERING ME UP...."

    fight these "changes if you like" along with Goldman, Barrons...WHOEVER... "no-one on earth" (or group) on earth... is POWERFUL enough to "prevent the impending changes" ...NO MATTER ...WHAT YOU "SAY...DO...THINK... PREFER...WANT"...

    I just look "ahead a bit at the INNEVITABLE" ...(SOME OF WHICH I DON'T LIKE MYSELF) but I can't do anything about it... AND NEITHER CAN "YOU and/or "all the king's horses and all the king's men!"

    that's HOW REALITY IS "RUN HERE"...

  • would I "just sit on piles of cash" in an uncertain "cash economy" or would I start "investing in the MOST PROMISING HARD ASSETS...

    and not "only" Apple...

  • google this:

    /tech/2015/01/31/tesla-cofounder-ian-wright-looks-to-electrify-commercial-trucks

  • I wrote this on Motley... but figured it was useful here, too...

    let's NOT OVERLOOK THIS SIMPLE FACT/LOGIC:

    many people ARE UNDER THE "ILLUSION" ...that ....well "supposin' some new batt-tech" comes out,
    to supplant "lithium ion"...

    WHAT THE "DUMDUMS" don't realize...is that...SETTING UP A HUGE FACTORY...to make a certain kind of product...

    lets' use SKIs for example...

    a. the BIG PART OF PRODUCING SKIs "is having a large "mkt share SKI producing plant"...GOT THAT???

    b. so IF SOME "new type of material COMES OUT" like "high-fiber carbon" or some kind of "new ceramic alloy" OR WHATEVER...

    GOT THE POINT...it's"

    a. easy enough TO SWITCH TO THE "NEWER TECH" ...If YOU ALREADY HAVE A HUGE "MFR PLANT IN OPERATION" making a SIMILAR PRODUCT... got that "dumb shorts???"

    b. SO "TESLA" can just make "loads of other LATEST BATT-TECH stuff" FOR WHATEVER...

    CARS, TRUCKS, BACK-UP FOR SOLAR...laptops, flashlights...etc...etc....etc.

    AND "TESLA WILL BE ABLE TO "DO THIS QUICKLY"

    because they "already will have A GIANT GIGAFACTORY" ...ALL "STAFFTED/SET-UP...AND OPERATIONAL...

    get that "short dumbies???

    your "concepts" of "quantum physics" are VERY RUDIMENTARY... "AS ARE THE CONCEPTS" OF YOUR WORLD'S GREATEST SCIENTISTS...

    all your "little number crunching" (though the math is good...) is based on "very limited concepts and mental capabilities."

    imagine how different things are perceived, comprehended, etc...."when you are focused on such concepts" with, for example a "300 plus IQ" (it's actually something much more than "limited IQ"...but you're not capable of understanding what that is all about and like...) ...so anyway... "everyone on this planet" is really "rather limitied" when it come to larger "metaphysical type issues" ...

    you can "pretty much scrap" most of your theories:

    a. there is "no such thing as the "big-bang"...
    b. your technology is "rather primitive" ...is useful for "engineering-type stuff" ...mostly "just on earth"...
    ...think of it like "Newtonian Physics... works for cannonball calculations, and "laws of physics" which work - like you think - BUT ONLY in the vicinity of earth...(like gravity)
    c. both concepts of "creationism" ARE WRONG... both Darwin... and your "limited IQ" concepts of the Bible...
    d. the Bible does have some "super info" but your "best and brightest theologians, philosophers, and scientists... aren't "advanced enough to comprehend it..."
    e. there are some "humans" (like flashrob) who have some access...
    f. there are ways to "vastly exceed the speed of light" (and the speed of light is NOT A CONSTANT...just appears that way to you and your instrumentation...
    g. you WILL NEVER FERRET THESE LARGER MYSTERIES OUT... (LIKE HIGHER DIMENSIONS AND MULTIPLE UNIVERSES, TIME-TRAVEL, ETC....because all your "tech is composed of 3rd density MATTER... and cannot EVER be used to "perceive higher density (you incorrectly refer to these as dimensions) ...

    so it's basically... "your TOO DUMB"
    AND
    what much of you are curious about REQUIRES being "off the scale smart" by your standards...

  • flashrob flashrob Feb 3, 2015 3:11 PM Flag

    just a "small part" of flashrob's background... since you asked...

    a. Proposal Analyst for a "defense contractor" ...gov div...weapons systems... jets, subs...
    that's kind of like "project mgmt" ...on phone routinely for "engineering issues" with Grumman, Lockheed, McDonald Douglas, etc.

    b. Hi-tech comp sales... networking MSFT NT... Novell networking... clients like NASA, CIA, Air Force... training with HP, Msft....etc.

    c. Military... battle plans... classified... so that's all you get on that...

    d. Mgmt Air Cargo ...major airline ...ran freight opns... offered to BE IN CHARGE Fed/Ex opns at Newark Airport...

    e. DAYTRADER... self-taught... 10k profit days occasionally...still do that if I need money... haven't worker in years...

    .................
    specialties... way above what is mentioned above... paranormal...quantum physics...dna modification...
    ...............
    does that give you a "bit of an idea" ...I'm mostly working on the dna and quantum physics stuff these days...
    .................
    so though I am a "super new-ager" ...that's how most would classify me... I have a fairly extensive background in things like "remote viewing" (that's what the military used for psychic spying if you want to look up "project stargate" ...it's even on wikipedia...

    so there are "lots of things" the average person knows little about... that I know "lots about..."

    flashrob (just since you asked... I told you a "little of the lightweight level stuff I'm involved in"

    ...oh, by-by-the-way... IT'S NOT JUST ME... there are "whole large networks of people" ...many way more adept and knowledgeable about these things... I mostly just dabble, etc.

  • when you read this article...PARTICULARLY pay attention to the "posts"...ONE GUY TELLS YOU WHY HE IS SWITCHING TO "TESLA X" ...already has one ordered... and HE ALREADY HAD "like hybrids and or LEAF" and THEY DIDN'T CUT IT FOR "COMMUTING!!!"

    so "google search" this:

    34029-tesla-motor-model-s-outsells-nissan-leaf-for-second-consecutive-month/

    flashrob

  • so while "most SPECULATION" and conjecture about TESLA is factored on "what you get from the public media"...well, apparently there are "all kinds of things and RELATIONSHIPS going on BENEATH THE SURFACE...

    meaning... now you probably "get some idea" of WHAT THE PRO BIG MONEY INVESTORS...based their valuation of Tesla on... THEY HAVE A "LOT MORE INFO THAN YOU HAVE ACCESS TOO..."

    the "public media" stuff... is "mostly soundbites and a lot of back and forth "GREATLY LIMITED DATA"...

    often when you work for a "high end company" THEIR IS A LOT MORE DATA being discussed and maneuvered at "higher levels" of company mgmt...

    ...........
    so it's advisable to "use common sense" ...YOU ARE "NOT AN INSIDER..." AND THE PEOPLE THAT ARE "KNOW AND BASE THEIR STRATEGIES" ON A LOT MORE THAN "YOU HAVE ACCESS TO...OR SPECULATE ABOUT...

    WONDER WHAT OTHER "UNDER THE COVER STUFF AND SURPRISES" ELON can spring on you...

    Apple and Tesla swapping "hi-end talent" ...geez this is "just coming out now" and MOST including "analysts" have been "apparently unaware of this" 'til now... SO HOW ACCURATE "COULD THEIR ANALYSES BEEN" WHEN THEY "DIDN'T HAVE ACCESS TO THIS KIND OF INFO..."

  • flashrob by flashrob Feb 6, 2015 10:31 AM Flag

    a. hey WOW... KATY PERRY did a "great job" on the Super-Bowl "half-time show"...
    I had "heard her name" over the years... but never really knew "who she was and what she was all about...

    WOW is she talented and pretty, too...

    b. BUT HERE'S A SIMPLE POINT... "looked like Seattle WAS GONNA PULL IT OUT AT THE LAST MINUTE"...

    BUT "SEE WHAT HAPPENED" didn't work out for them...

    the "same goes FOR BIG GUZZLER AND BIG OIL"... IT "AIN'T GONNA WORK OUT FOR THEM"

    TESLA will inevitably WIN...

    ..............
    think about WHY ...when "most big guzzler supporters" KEEP TELLIN' US "TESLA HAS NO FUTURE...ETC."

    WELL...THEN...WHY "ARE THEY SO CONCERNCED ABOUT "TESLA???" ...why are there so "many OBVIOUS" supporters of theirs... constantly NEGATIVELY BLASTING "TESLA" ...on many boards and financial sites...

    why pay "attention" to a company THEY CHARACTERIZE... as a "minor doomed to fail player"...

    HELL TESLA "HAS SMALL NUMBERS"...YOU THINK THEY WOULD BE FOCUSING ON "OTHER BIG PRODUCTION COMPETITORS...

    but KNOW... is all "about TESLA" ...why??? BECAUSE "TESLA" gonna "kick their butts" ...no matter "who and HOW BIG they are... that's WHY!

  • and you know this "is JUST THE BEGINNING" ...remember the cigarette tax...

    when "pol wallets and state budgets" get real thin... what do POLS DO... find a "cash cow" and this is a "whopper with a lot of potential"...

    I expect this is "just the slip in real slow and gentle to the consumer"... don't want to SCARE/UN-NERVE THE GUY IN THE STREET... (besides this... with all the well closings and refinery strikes... well that WILL BOOST "GASOLINE PUMP PRICES, TOO" ...no matter how much cheap oil there is....

    Resale on a new Tesla S after 2 years

    by cspanosmwc Feb 9, 2015 9:00 AM
    flashrob flashrob Feb 9, 2015 10:18 AM Flag

    ALSO ...WITH LESS MOVING PARTS...

    like the "original electric dynamos" at Hoover Dam are "still running AFTER ABOUT 85 YEARS...

    .........
    MEANING ...TESLA ... used gonna probably CLOCK "well over a MILLION MILES"...without expensive repairs by comparison with "guzzler fluids and hundreds of other parts WEARING OUT...

    ..............
    SO "TESLA" USED... SELLING (you had plenty of money to buy the first one...so not that "big a deal to you..."

    and BUYING ..."SUPER DEAL FOR PURCHASER..."

  • usually happens "regardless of earnings" ...the stock starts climbing again...

    so this is a "good buying OP"...

    and pretty soon... BACK UP "OVER 200" ...as usual... REGARDLESS OF EARNINGS...

    .........
    rev growth looks good... and "less people buy new cars IN WINTER... wether in China or Europe...

    .........
    plus Elon comin' out with some "new batt tech stuff" ...I think on "mkt watch" or somethin' ...

    ........
    well whatever... HEY BY THE WAY... does GM Ford always have "positive quarters???"

    .......
    ALL COMPANIES HAVE "negative quarters" BUT IT'S ABOUT "OVERALL REV GROWTH EXPANSION AND PROMISE...

    that IS what TESLA is "all about" ...AND BIG MONEY FUNDS KNOW THIS...
