I don't think it will run counter the market and I think our markets will just follow Europe which will probably be back up and new money will probably jack the market up on the first day of the month.
I doubt it as these tweets started with Reed Hastings of Netflix a few years back and they said tweets were OK. I'm not sure of the specifics but it passed Reg. FD.
and if it's like the past, 2020 earnings projections will decrease over time dramatically.
JB knows Wall Street and how to control the stock with his pals.
Check out the days whenever drones are in the news in one way another for AMZN.
I believe it's a code word for the usual collusion. Drones = the stock goes up.
Musk said after a previous tweet that he was not trying to move the stock. After yesterday's stunt he is once again exposed as a liar.
He knows darn well and has stated previously that they will still need to go back to the debt market, which could also mean a secondary.
He knows darn well the stock price matters and I guess he can read a chart also.
No position but would only short or buy puts unless this were a heck of a lot cheaper.
Sorry, Two separate items in my same sentence. the CEO's shares have remained steady. He owns nearly 22% of the company. That's a positive.
The restricted stock units were awarded to either board of directors and people at the company and they are very modest awards. In most cases only 3,500 shares. These days company's generally compensate a lot more than that. That's a positive as they are not giving away the farm to insiders and people on the board.
Neither of these items have anything to do with the performance of the company but the first items shows the CEO is looking for share appreciation before he sells any substantial amount.
I do think that guy is full of bunk. The only thing that I could find from very recently was the CEO's 13G/A which shows he has held his shares over the last year and in Feb. there were some form 4's with an additional one in March that were all very, very modest Restricted Stock Unit awards.
I actually find the modest size of those to be refreshing.
I think jmcvicker has it right. It kicked off the algos but it will stick for a while most likely?
They need to defend their stock because eventually they'll be back for more debt and or further dilution.
I noticed that the tentatively predicted date for earnings isn't until early May so this announcement will occur before then.
He did they just mentioned it on CNBC. New product announcement on 4/30, 8 PM (not sure of time zone). Not a car. No but he doesn't tweet to pump the stock. Not at all. Kick save by Elon. I have no position but these allowable tweets are a joke.
I just looked up the CEO's holdings and whatever sales he may have had would be quite small relative to what he owns.
His last 2 13 a/d's show he held virtually the same number of shares this year as this time last year.
Not sure what this poster is up to.
The CEO is currently committed with his wallet and quite substantially since he owns almost 22% of the company. Say what you will and I have, the guy holds a ton of shares and expects to succeed or to build the company to be bought.
Bingo! He wasn't math major, Nope, not a finance major. Not an engineer. Not a rocket scientist. Liberal Arts? Who knows and who cares.
Let me correct myself you are here often saying nothing and nothing about hard and fast numbers, aka math much, other than deriding people. What did you think of the latest David Trainer article on Netflix?
Without even cheating NON GAAP accounting can be very liberal. GAAP should be looked at IMHO. Some companies have huge gaps between GAAP and NON GAAP while others don't for various reasons including higher or lower levels of stock based compensation.
In the longer run FCF is what matters. This has little to none but that's mostly because they are expanding as quickly as they can overseas.
Absolutely, at least from domestic companies who also know that's where any profits currently are.
Meanwhile, this is running red outside of the states so if they get hit hardest in the most successful market then what?
The profits will magically be there in other places?
Math matters. Finance matters. Debt ratings will eventually matter.
We are starting to see a bit of consolidation in the overall market which is typical in a late stage bull and they are often irrational mergers, i.e. AOL-Time Warner. I wonder if this gets a crazy bid at some point.
The item referred to was posted by someone else first and I responded even after I had already read it the day before. It was also not an opinion piece but was posted by an SA news editor on 3/26, that was Thursday. The information is directly from the filed 10k.
The ramp up is good as long as they sell lots of machines and start to turn a cash burn toward being the opposite.
Bad management can make or break a company. Hopefully, for your sake and the other longs the CEO has the right C-Suite now and he is up to the job.
I'll still say it, although others will say it's not necessary. buy outs often happen in late stage bull markets and often they are not rational ones. A buyout, well thought out or not would not be the worst thing to happen here if there is a decent premium.
Why, because then no one has to worry about ,management executing.
I saw that too on Seeking Alpha. One person commented that they had a similar warning in their 10k last year but I got the impression that they did not say anything about changing the IT system and adding more financial personnel.
Not buying this with my money.
