HP has identified the consumer 3-D market as negligible and unprofitable. You're out of luck Izzy.
A LIE. Whitman was very, very clear. HP is developing their 3-D printing capability in house. They are NOT buying a 3-D printing company. And they have identified the profitable sector as being the enterprise business and NOT the consumer business. DO NOT believe bridgegod.
The actual numbers are still very bad and have been for some time. Interest payments have skyrocketed - $100 million a quarter now. But it's a great stock for gamblers hoping to make a quick buck - betting on up and/or down moves. The pumpers really aren't interested in numbers. They've made an upside bet. Some of them are winning and some aren't. The stock was at $10 last December, again in mid-May, and again now. In March it was $5.

That's true and it's a pleasant ride. Not too much of a test for a Tesla though - parked on a ferry. But much safer than trying to drive one 2200 miles and having it break down thousands of miles from any Tesla service.

If you actually drive your car you have to go through British Columbia and the Yukon before you hit Alaska. From Seattle to Anchorage in southern Alaska is 2200 miles by road.
Not if you thought it would make only $100 per year forever. In fact if you want to assume no growth would you pay even $1100? $700? $500?
