The funny thing is, the shorts think I need full economic payback to buy this.
At $5000-6000 "out the door" price, I'd buy this JUST as a backup system for my house. Peak hour savings are a bonus.
I just thought of something else, until the gigafactory comes online, the batteries won't qualify under NAFTA :'(
no keef, it's still impossible for you to have over 100% gross profit....
To make 500% gross profit, it would mean you would need to sell something for $100, and somehow make $500 on that the $100 sale.
You, and all your buddies, know absolutely, NOTHING.
what kind of IDIOT would listen to anything you have to say?!?!
HAHAHAHAHAH They deserve whats coming to them if they do!
it's funny you guys don't get it! Do you realize how cheap Tesla must be getting batteries for??!?!?
That's the biggest part of this announcement! Now we know!
""""We're excited to roll out a 4.8 megawatt hour pilot of Tesla’s energy storage batteries in our US West (Northern California) Region"""
I've come to the conclusion that there were no real investors in that thread other than me and dino....impossible they could lack such basic knowledge and have the ability to trade on margin, I just don't believe it. Bunch of shills, all of them.
"""meh, as I go back and try to follow the thread back through the labyrinth, i see that keef spoke of gross profit, so he was right (and I was too). Sorry, future, but gross profit can certainly exceed 100%."""
I don't know whether to laugh, or cry..
dude, GROSS PROFIT and GROSS MARGIN are the same FRIGGIN THING!!!!
seriously though Keef, once you figure out why Gross Margins can never be above 100% you'll have learned something today!
