Musk dreams of machines that build machines. Of factories that operate at 5 times normal speeds. Of solar integrated with batteries. Of self-driving cars.
What an airhead.
The Shorts dream of Steam Engines. Yawn.
By the time VW etc. build their first Gigafactory clone, TSLA will already be producing the Model S, Model X, Model 3, Model Y, the Semi, and have plans underway for a Pickup Truck and an EBike. PLUS TSLA's self-driving technology will be ready for the roads. $1,000 stock, easy.
Sun disappears - Trump to blame.
In a blatant bid to torpedo the solar power industry (while rewarding his oil-producing buddies) Trump caused parts of the western US to go totally dark. CNN says blacks, women and gays and are being harmed the most.
Speaking about Tesla debt.....................
Today Gerbils and Undesirables came out of burrows in show of force and slowly but surely are approaching the state of Insane Jubilation [ BTW accurately predicted several days ago by Kapitan] thus increasing crucial Correalatio Index *.
Anyhow, vast majority of Shortrashains keep presenting one sided data about Tesla's debt , which allegedly will lead to Chapter 7 in 2018 [according to not very bright Stoofie Fubar Akbar's prediction]. I would advise them to take a moment and analyze how Tesla's capital structure stacks up against other domestic automakers . Please check and see what current Total Debt/Total Equity, Total Debt/Total Assets and Total Debt/Total Capital ratios looks like and let us know what you think.
PS I welcome opinion of Stooge # 1 [Scholar Akbar Skooktor ] or even Stooge # 2 rynsalmonella [ this one as long as he refrains from writing "great post" right after Stooge's # 1 post] PS2 LOLZLOLOLO !!!!!!!!!!!
*Correlatio = Collective Emotional State of Shortrashaians x Total Short Interest / TSLA Directional pps Movement
Charging a TSLA raises your Electric bill- Some going up 100-200 per month or more Sorry but Electricity is NOT free
I've been asking for years for the zealots to say what they do for a living. Aside from Leroy, no one has answered. And his answers were lies. Folks, it not a State secret. Saying what you do provides a frame of reference. Instead of posting garbage, at least you'll validate your experience.
I'll ask once more for you folks to reveal your work background, without names, without specific companies. How difficult is the question? Come on! Be civil.
Now that Musk says that Tesla's cash flow won't turn positive till at least 2025, Tesla bonds are a sure thing.
Why is it dropping? Did they release the Model 3 to some real customers finally?
Time to mute fast fire
Musk, don't worry about the competition from the likes of BMW, Mercedes and others in the electric car field. The Killer Robots will take care of the competition.
Can someone clarify this: when I bought the laptop it used to run on battery for 5 hours straight. For the first year I didn't notice much degradation. After that it started to last shorter and shorter and 3 years, it now runs only one hour on batteries. I noticed the same for my phone. Aren't these the same type of batteries? So am I to understand that Tesla batteries will not degrade year after year and last less and less long between charges?
In 2016, Ford sold 820,000 pickups alone. Tesla stock is over valued. It will snap back. Like a rubber band.
Did anyone see the video on YouTube of the new Tesla Electric Boat, kicking the #$%$ out of the infamous water skiing squirrel? Not only hilariously cute, but good for another $2B in Market Cap.
Well that spike was fun ( and predictable) now we can reduce the long and slow grind down.
Tesla is getting better at building cars. Unlike early versions of the Model S and X, the Model 3 is built to be a daily driver, with plenty of cupholders, door pockets, and console storage. The materials of the arm rests and doors feel ready for abuse. And the stitched synthetic material used for the premium seats is different than leather, but not inferior. BMW and Mercedes should be concerned. This automobile is clearly targeting their market. Since Musk handed over keys to the first 30 cars on Friday, I’ve heard a lot of people trying to compare the Model 3 to GM’s all-electric Chevy Bolt (known as the Opel Ampera-e in Europe). Although they’re similarly priced and both run on batteries, the parallel ends there. The Bolt is basically an economy gasoline car that’s been electrified; the Model 3 is, well, something altogether different. Last year I wrote about a subculture of Tesla drivers who go camping in the back of their cars. It sounds crazy at first, but the car’s massive battery can maintain perfectly controlled climate all night while only losing about 7 percent of the car’s range. With the glass canopy overhead and the view of the stars, it’s a great way to enjoy national parks without the bother of a campsite. I tried it myself and loved it. Another indicator of Tesla’s battery and efficiency improvements is its weight. It’s only 150 pounds more than the Mercedes C-Class, even though it’s actually a smidge bigger and has more passenger and trunk space. Five years ago that would’ve been impossible. The car has the best storage room in its class—15 cubic feet divided between the front and rear trunks. But for anyone hoping to use the Model 3 as their sole means of transportation, the biggest hang-up might be the trunk’s opening. I brought a tape measure with me, and the opening measured 18.5 inches tall and 42 inches at its widest. That’s pretty standard for a small sedan, which is to say, not great. Most Americans have grown accustomed to larger SUVs and crossovers, and the utilitarian hatchback has been embraced by Europeans for ages.
Tesla is over 8 billion in debt. Other car companies aren't going to sit by and let tesla take market saher, so Assuming no cost overruns or recalls, I think Tesla's profit margin will get squeezed to at best 5% per unit sold. That would mean, that Tesla would have to sell 4-4.5 million model 3's to cover their debt. That will never, ever happen
Rick for Real
Hello Pete, Been trading for many years. Followed the financial markets since grade school. Worked in the private sector for many years before trading everyday. I have an extensive motorsport background. I think T is insanely overvalued. A good start of the problem list is, Price to Sales ridiculous, Carry Forward Loss building, Recent Junk Bond sales already trading under water. Production Growth needed to swim out of debt with a cheaper unit is a pipe dream. Tax Incentives evaporating. Flood of more cost efficient competition growing. If that makes me a zealot, I'm all in. Others here can add to the bear debate. Good luck.
It seem apparent that Elon has selected the number one reason for delay in Model 3 production. We're being setup to accept the ole' "Killer Robot" excuse.
Their new bonds are already Junk and Underwater. Short this toilet paper.
People falling over each other to get into this thing 30 minutes ago and were already looking at going red again.
