dealers / manufactureres do something like the deposit to latch down clients for limited edition specialty caras. The Model 3 is "supposed" to be mass market. One never (I repeat NEVER) has to do that for a mass market car for which TSLA Wants to sell 500k of those junkers per year.
very few people want to o r will put down $1,000 for a car they cannot get for a couple years. Only the blind TSLA lemmings.
of course it is. No one really wants the car (in large numbers) so to make a splash to keep the pig from completely getting slaughtered, he has to entice more of the lemmings to sign up. More will pay the $1000 to say they have a reservation and EWON can tout how many people signed up. Interesting sign of a ponzi scheme or some scam type.
scottrade has no shares to short today. Do you see that at other firms. I just tried unsuccessfully. I can understand why. Hate to buy more puts after selling yesterday for a nice profit as they are quite expensive. Wanted to sell short to have enough time for the implosion to take shape.
I was surprised he did not kiss up to her. He did not want to answer her questions either on the call last night
pinnocchio II. He must have quite a woodie today (nose) after saying that. I am sorry markets are down so much today as it would have been a great time to buy more put options if TSLA had flown as high as a falcon today.
How can they claim their Fremont factory is second biggest building footprint in world and Gigglefactory to be largest. The third is a flower plant in Netherlands (did he say Tulip panic factory). You have to be kidding me that someone else does not have larger factory footprints?????
EWON said he does not want to get that granular about Model X current run rate. In other words, they are no making many and don't want any of us to know so they will not tell us untli they are forced to do so? Terrible story that gets worse. The rise tonight will give shorts a chance to work their magic tomorrow or soon.
love it. I was hoping firms would stop insuring the wheel launchers sooner rather than later.
What a blowhard. Does anyone really believe a word he says. I guess so after looking at the stock price AH. He said TSLA might not build a car like Model X again. I am sure not. It is a piece of junk. They cannot even build enough of them to have it in showrooms, have magazines write about it, etc. They are trying to suppress demand. No one wants it anyway when they get hit by the falcon doors.
trump is sincere albeit brash. EWON is a scam artist like snake oil salesmen from circus of days gone by
needs to be at least 5 times that high for company to have any hope of being financially viable. That guidance is still pathetic
i just got out of meetings and saw that the lemmings are pumping TSLA higher after hours as they did last quarter. Glad I sold my puts on a wild hunch. Just luck I guess (at least for once). I assume they burned more cash than the US government can but have not had time to digest the report.
I assume it is because they claim they will sell / ship 80,000 caars in 2016. They want to be able to sell more stock so they have to pump it uu somehow. Might be a good new opportunity to short it / buy puts after selling my puts right before market closed. I figured the lemmings would push it up in AH session as they did 3 months ago
I saw a clip on CNBC or some site linked in Yahoo about Oppenheimer analyst having a huge price target. He looked like he had been drinking some laced Kook Aid but will be interesting to see if it can bounce after the Musk Piper has his say in the conference call He is sickening to listen to The company in its current equity format is not viable. It is just whether it can succeed as a niche market car for a few thousand cars per year with new capital.
I can see that after a 1 for 10 reverse split. You have it about right
isn't milk price government controlled in many states to make sure the farmers don't dump fresh milk when the cow makes it. It is cheap here in FL compared to what it was
I don't want to steal your thunder but I have said this all along. Only big difference is that DeLorean can be kept on the roads as some parts were interchangeable with other cars. TSLA is nothing but a lawn ornament in the making when it shuts down. Parts will not be available. People would have to sink a real engine in the front end???? LOL Guess people can try to sell the wheels for salvage but rest of the car is not worthwhile once parts go away
