The general consensus is changing from "Ludicrous" to just plain "Silly" for Tesla's design ideas.
..How many states have charge stations? What does a charge station cost to build? What mechanical strains occur with the "ridiculous" acceleration startup? What performance on crash tests? What manual backup when automated doors, gull windows, brakes, etc. fail. What do the assembly robots cost? And on and on with this unproven design zooming off the assembly line by the half-dozen.
And not worry about tomorrow.
over 9%. And it is recommended by Seeking Alpha (I just stumbled on...not a promoter) as one of its
current "Dividend Dogs"....solid company, high divs, low quote. I"m heavy in the stock, and added preferred.
Even incredible Model X success cannot justify the goals in the 300+ areas.
VW's diesel deceit puts all major automakers in a bind: they much junk that class of vehicle and replace it with something else. That else will be massive world competition for TSLA...whose unique glamour will be gone long before it can put its EV into mass production (if that ever was to happen anyway).
TGH, as largest container lease company, will outlast competitors, has cash and apparently good management with faithful shareholders. Chart would seem to have reached a 55-day cyclical bottom
today 9/21/15. Analysts have become reluctant to support solid fundamentals in this momentum Bull
of 8 years. But I'd say (and I've watched the Mkt (what's left of it as a freespirit) for 5 decades. This
seems a solid fundamental buy to me in the 15s.
Brokers seem reluctant to support it further for their fees from the banks issuing new LGI equity. I did
cover most of my shortsale loss in the low 28s...moved to SPF, which has dropped a much larger percentage on the new, discouraging home sales statistics. But probably won't see 23-4 in LGIH soon, unless the Mkt does its big drop in Oct. Another surprise in homes shortselling, by the way, you might have seen: SBY had bought a few thousand foreclosure homes to rent before selling later for BIG GAINS...instead, they are making the BIG GAINS now on skyrocking monthly rents...won't have to face the renter depreciation damage from all that for quite a few years (when it will be catastrophic to their shareholders). Meanwhile, I have to cover that short at a tiny loss...hadn't expected rents to nearly double in a few cities!! Live and learn.
...sounds great for Shorts, huh?! And from certain charting and hyping perspectives, it could just be true.
You know what happens in Oct/Nov after an unexplained huge fallout in the averages?! (remember -1000pts?). Anyway, a nice counter comment to all the new model hype.
BUT....BNED is, like BKS fighting insidious eps losses. And if it behaves like BKS, BNED has another 15% or so to fade as an upstart stock.
...hard for any truly intelligent person to take in all the hype behind such ventures as Musk's.
I believe you!...especially in a long Bull PEs of vital cos. get elevated. And I made a BIG mistake shorting LGIH: I didn't do my research...just thought the oil layoffs would hurt Houston area. I'd shorted, profitably, several Builders who refused to build homes that could sell for less than $200-250K in "poor" markets (like Tucson or the South). Surprise!: LGIH was doing exactly that: selling decent starter homes in the $180Ks! And now LGIH is being supported by Deutschbank and JPMorgan so they can market its new shares. I've had to cover at a large loss, after having a brief short gain when LGIH dipped below 18 ln July before eps. Research is critical. I neglected it. And I thought I was "experienced" in Builders after a string of Shorting profits. One word of caution to you, in return: After the bankers get added LGIH shares marketed..perhaps by lifting quote briefly into 30s, the general Mkt weakness could bring it down, along with everything else. High home sales are unlikely to continue thru the Fall.
Thanks, lestah...I DON'T like losing...and certainly have so far, shorting LGIH. I did see the 75% sales jump...that's what I meant by the stock jumping (because of it) to a record high..and being an unseasoned builder...young and aggressive with a high PE. What I didn't know is today's news: that LGIH has entered into banking contracts with Deutchbank, JP Morgan, etc. to sell lots of shares (dilution) and aggressive expansion. Sadly for me, this means lots of institutional support to earn
all those share sales fees. I'd hoped to limit my loss at a 23-4 drop. Now, it looks like LGIH could
still climb (as long as this Mkt poses as a continuing Bull)...only to fall back into the teens (but much later) due to overaggressive building communities expansion. Hard to know what to do now. Maybe just switch to another less aggressive builder whose stock is too high today.
Chart fails (so far) to even break the downtrend line formed by highs in 285s..then 270 peak..then 260..then low 250s. It'll take a great Musk TV appearance to top this downtrend line. But what does a chart know?
Well "Fadding" could be appropriate for Tesla's electric models...but I meant "Fading"
