    Long-Term Fundamentals of Tesla Motors (TSLA)

    If only there was a visionary in charge of the company with a clever and agile team behind him and a track record for finding smart and consumer friendly solutions. Alas, the stock is probably doomed, since our internet forum cannot agree on how to fix this issue... :wink:

    European SuperCharger rollout updated

    Thank you! But I don't have a Chademo adapter. I have decided I will charge to 100% at Vienne SC and just manage the power consumption to make it all the way to Brive SC. It is 388km, so if I keep to 100 km/h I should make it with a margin.

    This must be an application for Tesla batteries: Launching NASA spacecraft

    http://www.popsci.com/technology/article/2010-11/nasa-engineers-propose-combining-rail-gun-and-scramjet-fire-spacecraft-orbit As I see it, NASA will have two basic options for the electricity requirements here: 1. Beef up local generation capacity so that there is spare 180 MW whenever they...

    Long-Term Fundamentals of Tesla Motors (TSLA)

    I can only support this with my own experience. Me has one Leaf and one Tesla. I frequently travel for business and get nice rental cars (high end BMWs, Mercs and such). While I look forward to trying these "wonders of engineering", I always end up frustrated and disappointed. My Leaf is at...

    Tsunami update (of hurt)

    I don't think you mean "naked short" in the way that term is usually meant. A regular short position means I went to someone who had shares, borrowed those shares from that person and then sold them. A naked short means I simply sold shares without even having access to any (see: Naked short...

    Total short losses 26oct12 - 27feb14 (close): Trading: $5,985 million Interest paid: $275 million Total losses from shorting: $6,261 million Note that these are only the losses in the common. It is fair to assume a lot of shorting has taken place by means of options as well, in particular...

    Tsunami update (of hurt)

    Yeah, will have to do yet another Tsunamometer soon. I think I'll wait for the next release of short interest, though.

    Short-Term TSLA Price Movements - 2014

    OMG. The Pain this squeeze will cause. Shorts have more than 4x the exposure they had before the Q1'13 earnings squeeze: Short interest on April 30, 2013: 27,501,901 shares @ $53.99 = $1.5bn Short interest now: ~29,639,877 shares @ $217.65 = ~$6.5bn

    Tsunami update (of hurt)

    Mario, I am using a very simplified methodology. The short interest is updated every 14 days. I take the stock price at the start of that period and subtract the stock price at the end, and multiply with the average of the starting and the ending short interest for that interval. That is...

    Long-Term Fundamentals of Tesla Motors (TSLA)

    The most brilliant thing is how they score a lot of publicity and goodwill with the announcement that they are sticking to the same pricing policy as before. :-)
