    2017 Investor Roundtable:General Discussion

    I think from a guidance perspective, the letter and call were both great. However, from a financial perspective, there is (and always has been) one glaring concern for me: SG&A costs. This quarter SG&A amounted to over 29.6% of revenues and almost totaled more than their gross profit after the...

    Exactly. He also said "It would be really big news if I start (elaborating) here." His body language alone gives the sense that it's going to be huge news. I think it's very likely that they are going to announce their own ride-sharing platform based on autonomy.

    Exactly. They are basically saying "if we overcame all of these obstacles, the future shouldn't be that difficult in comparison." At the same time they're countering the bear argument that people constantly shuffle through important positions by featuring employees who've been with the company...

    Official: TSLA Shareholder Meeting 2016 Questions

    Model S driver filmed sleeping in traffic!! Calling All Forum Safety Nannies!!

    This is great free advertising. I've seen this video shared on my Facebook feed more than any other single Tesla video I can remember (M3 reveal is close) and it's truly surprising to many.

    Tesla driver caught sleeping while Autopilot steers On the topic of Apple/autonomous cars, I thought I'd share this article since it hasn't been posted on the thread. Just goes to show how far autonomous technology really is today. As avid Tesla followers, most of us have a good understanding...

    Cadillac has ended production of its electric car after just 2 years So much for the bear case that Tesla is a goner once other big auto companies start putting effort into EVs. Not as easy as you thought I guess.. wonder how many of these "Tesla killers" will be discontinued before making a...

    Short-Term TSLA Price Movements - 2016

    Tesla up to 29,311,876 shares sold short as of 05/13/216. This is the first increase in shares sold short and the highest recorded amount since March of this year. This is after their Q1 ER, which further proves the market's skepticism around the company's projections. Due to poor execution...

    I'm really looking forward to the shareholder's meeting, but I'm not expecting any positive news not stated during the CC. If they had any serious, stock moving information to unveil, I feel like they would've either said it during the CC or delayed the capital raise another month or so. Just my...

    I know what you were replying to, and I stand firm with my claim that Tesla increased Model S deliveries, year over year, in each individual quarter since the car was released. When looking at deliveries, you must look at them year over year (comparing this year's quarterly data with last year's...

    Will happen slowly over the next few weeks - does not happen all at once. MS deliveries have increased each of the past two years by over 50%, and continue to grow year over year. This won't continue, but demand/deliveries still growing at a large clip, as evidenced by Q1'16 MS deliveries...
