Just sell well OTM calls when there is a good pop (say 280) and then take it off when it drops again. Selling premium usually ends well if you are watching it.
Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas and the company is complicit in causing a short squeeze. This is an illegal activity that drove the PPS up to $250 which was the price they wanted to float the Sr. Note bond at. That it is down 10% does not compare to the $100 point rise from $150 in the fall where it was already overpriced and was starting to factor in the 2017 "imaginary sales growth" that the "analysts" were already trying to talk up ahead of all this. CEO Elon Musk said that $160 price was more than they deserved and they would work hard to earn it.
Have a good weekend and wonder what level of trust you can give to a stock and CEO who is overseen by wall street money managers.
Ugly? Ever see the styles the young people are sporting these days? And in Europe, their taste doesn't match the USA in terms of looks and product. It may actually be a good looking style for many people. It is doing quite well selling in Europe so far.
They haven't yet cured death yet. And "untimely"? What is that, really?
There is only one cure for death and it doesn't come in pill form.
You should have sold calls to expire them worthless. Buying puts is not really a good plan unless you bought 250's on Tuesday at the open.
Different? :) Some have guessed that this is a hail mary where the underwriters just got Musk to post twice the value of his Trust's shares as collateral. He already owes GS $275M and MS something like $25M or more for personal loans.
It's distribution month - keep buying! Fund managers sending special gifts to anyone buying more than 200 share blocks.
Just lowered price in Germany by 7,000 euros for base model.
Jan sales 30, Feb sales 66.
May help sales a little while cutting into GM.
There is wording in the financial documents of Tesla that says they can recognize revenue if the sale is a certainty. Sure is if the owner is already making loan payments. Could be that this type of thing was done in December to bolster the sales in EU countries to get 6900? If true, it is a face-palm situation.
It can happen once more details of the sales by region are made clearer but the firm does a good job of keeping that quiet. Very quiet. Reminds me of 1999 all over again. Look at the max-graph of BLDP and FCEL among others.
Conversely this means one thing. N.A. sales in 2014 will be down at least 30% from 2013. From 17,500 to about 12,000. Guidance of 35,000 for the world in 2014 and N.A. sales in 2013 of 17,500. Reservation rate was 6:1 for N.A. : EU through mid 2013, at least. So, with N.A. sales looking to be a descending rate, the latest news is "leasing, more service centers and sales galleries in Europe are to be built". This is CapEx and OpEx expansion. They will be needing that new money that just came in.
Simple math of X + 2X = 3X. (35K / 3) = under 12.
What finance writer will do simple 3rd grade math and write the next Motley Fool article regarding this? This is why they do not give guidance or reservation numbers by country. So they can move the cups around with the pea under it and keep the guessing going. No other auto company hides sales numbers in this manner. The stock/bond underwriters want them to keep the transparency low. Huge risk in actual details.
