Everyone's a #$%$ when you're shorting a stock! You should never believe any of the malarkey in this message board and do your own due diligence. If you can't test drive the car the go to YouTube and watch the video's. A successful person like Musk doesn't create unsuccessful companies and I would never bet against the man. Everything that the shorts say has been going on since I bought the stock at 28/share in 2012 and it's even in a better position today with over 400,000 orders for the M3. It is a good thing to have that many orders no matter how the shorts want to make it look bad.
creephi, the only answer that dignifies your statement, YOU'RE STUPID! "Right now the green house gas thing isn't provable. A piece to a puzzle that may never be solved. " It has been and hypothesized since the 1850's.
I agree. They cut down Musk, they cut down his companies. Nowadays, you have to respond otherwise they think it's the truth.
Don't be stupid should be your motto! Obviously, if it's hotter, and it is, there is going to be more evaporation off of the ocean. I has to go somewhere. Thus more rain and snowfall when it is over land. Why is that concept so hard to understand. Go back to 5th grade science classes!
muchomacho42, why do you want to show your ignorance or stupidity by announcing that? Get out of your parents basement, get a job and quit watching cable!
You can't be civilized anymore because society has turned into Trump lovers, arrogant, brash in your face, eff you mentality. I just got back from the post office and some guy I don't even know is #$%$ about the post office because he's not first in line and that they need to go under. He's third. Wow! And of course the people shorting this stock and others only care about making a buck for themselves. They don't care if Elon Musk has built successful companies and employs thousands of Americans. All they care about is making a buck sitting on their #$%$ doing nothing but talking. All the shorts in every Yahoo message board put nothing up of value except speculation on the most absurd things.
martc1, you forgot to add the rest of the sentence "you need to believe me because I shorted the stock"
Almost all the people that write in the Yahoo Message Boards are shorting the stocks. Go do a random check and you'll see. As far as the institutions go, they have a lot of money tied up to energy stocks and have lost a ton of money. Just hang in there and don't listen to the peanut gallery. I have held on since it was 28/share although all the stupid talk scared me and I ended up having 300 shares less than I had. I expect these cars to be built quickly once they get the assembly line done. I hope the quality and service is as good as the Model S.
oldkenchan, are you smoking dope? Do yo work for a oil company? Where the hell are you going to get H2 from? Oh, from methane so we have to keep putting holes all over the place looking for fuel. Oh, we'll get it from water except we have no desalinization on the drawing boards anywhere and why compete with fresh water which we already have short supply and need it to live. Just so stupid!
jack, do you read very much or research the stock before putting your money down? Go research what happened when the Arab Oil Embargo happened during the 1970's. We were pushing our cars into the gas stations based on odd even numbers of the license plates. Where the hell do you think oil is coming from? And if you're as dumb as Sarah Palin who doesn't think global warming is man made, then it is hopeless in trying to have a dialogue with you!
Here is a couple of clues. NASA has instruments monitoring our Sun and it's activity and has been for many years because solar flares effect our communications satellites. If you know anything about physics you know that it takes a lot of energy to heat water. There are some places along the California coast where the water temperature was up between 5 and 10 degrees Fahrenheit. Do you have any idea how much energy it would take to heat that volume of water. There really is only one source that could do that and that is the Sun. The molecules of CO2 and CH4 absorb the infrared spectrum of the sunlight. Since the activity of the Sun has remained fairly constant but the greenhouse gases are going up, then it is logical. It just amazes me that people like Palin get more attention then scientists that specialize in their respective fields.
Just like a lot of the standards that we use that the government implemented for the sake of standardization the Department of Energy should have had a meeting with manufacturers of electric cars and come up with a standard plug. I suspect what is going to happen in the future is that the supercharger will be able to sense what car is hooked to it and you will pay with a credit card. That's what I would implement. The network is open to everyone but you will be charged for the electricity. The other car manufacturers are so far behind now that even when Elon opened the patents 2 years ago, they still haven't developed a car that has the performance of Tesla or the range, much less a network to charge the car away from the house.
I don't doubt the idea. The problem is how are they going to buy the massive amounts of right a way through to and within the cities. Are they going to build the tubes above ground or under. All of that is probably going to cost more than the actual hyperloop itself.
If wasn't pouring so much money into the supercharger, battery and infrastructure they would show a profit but the dense shorts can't seem to understand that.
Fiat, then just do it already. You moan and groan to the press. All his patents are open! Can your engineers read? Go to the patent office and pull down the electric motor, battery patents and anything else that Tesla moved into the open market! Did you not see the beginning of the presentation on the Model 3? He stated that the CO2 level is at 403ppm and the reason he opened the patents years ago was that other manufacturers could build a nice electric car and to help move it along quicker. But no, you probably didn't watch what your competition is doing so instead you want to #$%$ and moan about it!
