"consider that investors have turned their attention to steep growth rates rather than yield – stellar growth that is being offered by the new kid on the block, XPO Logistics, whose revenues have surged to $2.3bn in 2014 from $279m in 2012, fuelled by acquisitions. Meanwhile, relations between the two companies have never been easy."
Gee, that makes it even worse, revenues up 7 fold and can't make any margins- are they giving it away for free? Reminds me of Feye and all their hype. Still can't make a profit. I will only invest in money making companies. Look at appl margins. Then look at amzn, spotty revenues & pitiful margins.
Things I look at:
Profits verses debts
Profitability and margins, with return on assets are bad!
Profit Margin (ttm): -1.80%
Operating Margin (ttm): 0.23%
Return on Assets (ttm): 0.18%
Return on Equity (ttm): -3.78%
Why Tesla's Powerwall Is Just Another Toy For Rich Green People
All the breathless coverage of Elon Musk’s Powerwall battery brouhaha last night is missing the most important thing: a sober discussion of real-world costs. So let’s take a look at the costs and see if this world-shaking, game-changing innovation really makes any sense.
Musk said Tesla’s 7 kwh capacity battery would cost $3,000, while the 10 kwh capacity one would be $3,500. (That doesn’t include the cost of an AC-DC inverter – about $4,000 — plus professional installation.)
Sure like everybody else I want to save some money and have a backup system at my house, but when will it pay off and get most people of forward it to begin with. But most of all this company is bleeding money unbelievably and to get enough revenue to even consider present day Market cap might take 20 years, if ever.
Even Kramer says this company is way overvalued. By the way I am not short.
Oh and can somebody tell me how much the solar panels would cost to this kit?
