Kobode: Maggie says: "With Tesla's insight (I assume he means the current company and not the original Mr.Tesla) ... it was now possible to make an electric car that would raise the bar for performance/civility/cost in cars." I suppose it does when compared to your example 1,000,000,008! So give him a silver star. But for the rest of the car world Tesla is simply irrelevant with respect to the bar for performance/civility/cost. There has never been any indication that the engineers, the marketing departments, or the finance departments of Audi, MB,GM, BMW, Lexus etc. have spent more than a minute considering the flamed S. And if sales in California are any indication throw the consumer in that list too.
LOL Kbdodie... Hold on for just a wee minute. We need to be very clear that you are talking GAAP numbers. Not the other stuff that comes from the barn via Eloon. (And I double dare any long, short or medium to predict a GAAP profit.)
LOL. DumbsterJuiced. I just gotta ask. What juice are you on? And where did you get it? Did you ever read about the side effects of taking it?
LOL.snickers.. You make it sounds as if Tesla were a high-margin company that makes money, has profits to reinvest, and dividends to pay the shareholders. Earth to Jon, Earth to Jon. We have a winner here.
LOL I've been away for a few days... but Keefster is this your new moniker? Too bad that Eloon can't change the fortune, failure and frauds of the company with such facility.
LOL satansgoodmessage... You make a point that is forever overlooked. Panasonic is in business to make a profit, and they aren't going to sacrifice any margin just because Eloon has Giga plans. Panasonic will do exactly what is good for Panasonic. They will commit to the Giga only if it makes them more profits. And if it doesn't make them more profits thhe will never do it. But then again we need to remember that profits isn't a word that Eloon is familiar with.
LOL decoyoung I love it. You take me back to my early years when I believed in GAAP, audit reports, the SEC, fair markets, and eagerly awaited the pronouncements of CEOs. That was just after I lost faith in the tooth fairy.
So when the spoof does end up on SNL you know what they are spoofing. http://finance.yahoo.com/news/cramer-teslas-musk-snl-163236815.html
(Well some of us think this after each quarters' call, so this is about the tenth time. But it's now hyperbowl squared, quadrupled and squared again. And we haven't even got to the real half-time show when he shows his #$%$. Could you put that past Eloon?)
LOL. KB! This just needs a good ol' bump to keep it square and centre, because Eloon has proved again that he doesn't know how to square his circle.
LOL If i didn't suspect sarcasm you would have immediately won the Stupid Award of the Day.
LOL. jmcv.. Instead of just quoting "They" let's be critical of what "They" said. So it's about the savings being obtained from having a factory in the USA as opposed to in the far east. Hm. So the economics of the last forty years has somehow changed? Does this mean that the USA will start importing factories again. Please, please. Factories have been our best export for years. That isn't going to change cause of Eloon's GigleFactory. And secondly if bigger batteries are better then Panasonic would probably produce a pile of them already. In the far east or at whatever factory they thought was best. But I can tell you what the magic ingredient is... That's the stuff that Eloon shovels to the "analysts." I won't deny him credit for that.
LOL. Farmboy.. you actually "added more shares" to your existing position? Well I gotta go with BC's analysis. You are an idiot. Infact I would say 190/30 * idiot = 6idiiot.. Think of this as a new measure of standard deviation for use as due diligence by brokers. You have to be at least a 6idiot before you can go long TSLA.
LOL. easygoing. You also win the mixed-metaphor prize of the day! Wheels coming off a thing that sinks - that and Apple's theft will keep Eloon up at nights.
If Apple buys TSLA it would only be after BK. And they would only buy what is relevant to their computer, telecom, and watch business.
LOL "Tomorrow, tomorrow. The sun will come out tomorrow." Gosh what a catchy phrase; maybe I could turn it into a musical! But certainly not ito investment advice or speculating ideas.
LOL. Eloon was absolutely right! He was right for a change!!! He said there will be no profits before 2020. None. Nada. Niet! So take that to your bank and smoke it. It's not only a joke it's a scam ( to quote a notable Tesla commmentator.)
