Do you realize how long that question has been going on? I bought in at 28 and bailed at 150, only to buy back in again at 158. The shorts are wrong on this and it doesn't take much deduction to see where this is all heading. But the shorts refuse to look to the future and instead just want to bash. That sell at 150 cost me 200 shares that would be worth a lot today since it is about 120 points higher! I don't listen to the shorts at all anymore and bash them for their analysis which has proven to be wrong.
The shorts are getting dumber and dumber. They are starting to sound like the people on Fox News just spouting random stuff to make some stupid point.
Hey Lee, you need to take some physics lessons about energy. The electric motor is superior for transportation and is multiples better than internal combustion. Most of the internal combustion energy is dissipated as heat. It's on the on order of 75% wasted energy. Anyone who remembers the smoggy days of the Los Angeles basin and the Bay Area in the 1960's knows how bad the smog was. Electricity is far better for transportation and efficient.
Couldn't agree with you more. I did exactly the same thing but didn't serve in Vietnam. Just missed it but did serve my 4 years in Minot, ND which wasn't that great. But I've been long with this stock from 28. I did my analysis, drove the car, read all the literature from all the car magazines. Read about the technical details and also drove the Roadster and the S. I was amazed at how quick it was. But these people who are shorting the stock have done neither. They base their decision solely on numbers not realizing that many companies that exist today were so close to closing in their formation. Intel almost didn't make it in the early 80's and IBM bought 25% of them. Chipotle was rescued by McDonalds and owned 25% of them too.
keef, ballcoach, kbodie have been flagged as ignore. I reset the browser and that's when I realized how much baloney they put in the message board. Always the pessimist and crying foul. Ignore these guys because they are wrong, wrong, wrong. Been long since 28 and got out at 150 only to buy back in. Cost me 200 shares though. Don't listen to these guys because they've never driven the car and refuse to believe independent car tests or safety ratings or anything about good about the car. All they care about is trashing the car and Musk just so they can make a buck.
Yep, I did the same thing to Qualcomm and Mosaic years ago. I was right and made tremendous amounts of money. The only problem was getting out before the downturn.
Maybe you should take that broom handle and put it where the sun doesn't shine with that camera attached! You are the king of GoPro!
I think it will happen when they announce the date for release of the Model X. Until then I suspect it will see saw back and forth. Any announcement on the increase in battery mileage will push it higher too. I'm surprised that it has held its ground this week with no news. Usually the shorts are able to push it down 20 or more points after hitting the high. But if I was a short I wouldn't hold on this very long if it starts moving up. They could get crushed.
All the chat rooms do! Every once in a while there is a tidbit of worthwhile information but more often than not the shorts are in the boards making up stuff with phony analysis.
I ask myself this everyday! Why do the shorts like keef and ballcoach keep bad mouthing Tesla? They've been saying it since I bought the stock in the 28's. All the shorts do is bash. The facts they so espouse are so minor but they like to blow it up into a major event. From tire wear to drive to battery fires after hitting something at high speed. All malarkey.
The shorts are the same in every message board. Do your own homework and don't listen to these people! The shorts in the Tesla board cost me a lot of shares because I listened to their reasoning, no more. All of the stock market is a gamble unless you have strict enforcement of rules.
The shorts keep putting bogus things up. DON'T LISTEN TO THEM! Take it from me. I'm out of about 250 shares because I sold and bought back in at a higher price. THEY WERE WRONG THEN AND STILL ARE TODAY!
driving_miss_daisy, you forgot to finish the headline. It should have read."Do Not Invest In TSLA At These Levels because I shorted the stock and may lose my house" I'm so dumb for shorting stocks but can't help it because I'm a pessimist at heart.
Ballcoach, if I'd followed your advice I'd have been broke by now! But I suppose if you keep harping on the same thing you'll be right eventually. Just as a broken clock that is right twice a day!
Just stop with the fake analytical analysis of Tesla. Your constant whining and complaining does nothing to the people who want to see this company succeed. If you don't like the stock then don't buy it. If you short it, fine. Do it for your own reasons and quit trying to drag everyone else down with you and acting like you're the savior of anyone buying long.
