    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Maybe an unpopular opinion but I don't agree with this statement at all. Do I want a better world for my child? Yes Do I want to see Tesla succeed? Yes Do I think Tesla is doing overall good for society? Yes Do I only invest in Tesla to make money? 99% Yes, the other 1% is because I believe in...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Then it is too late...it isn't about buying back at the lowest prices, it is about buying back at strategically advantageous prices. To be clear, I'm not sure which side of the buyback argument I fall on but if Tesla does want to do buybacks I wouldn't have a problem with them doing it now.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    "Be fearful when others are greedy, be greedy when others are fearful" I was greedy in 2013 I was greedy in 2021 I am greedy now only time will tell but hopefully I get 2 out of 3 right

    Supercharger - Mammoth Lakes, CA - Community Recreation Center (approved by city Feb. '22, 12 V3 + 4 L2)

    Pretty sure my Tesla is under there somewhere... On another note, charging my 2022 LR Model 3 in the cold was much faster than charging my 2018 LR Model 3 at the existing Mammoth supercharger.

    Supercharger - Mammoth Lakes, CA - Community Recreation Center (approved by city Feb. '22, 12 V3 + 4 L2)

    I was up there last week and zero signs of the new supercharger. The snow was incredible though, fresh tracks all day long on Thursday.

    Supercharger - Mammoth Lakes, CA - Community Recreation Center (approved by city Feb. '22, 12 V3 + 4 L2)

    I have a feeling opening day will be a little sooner than next Friday. Trying to re-arrange my work schedule to hit it early next week. Chair 1 (or maybe 6) was spinning today on the webcams. I also find it very hard to believe that the new one is open considering the map on tesla.com has...

    Serious question with a slight bit of snark. Are you an MBA @Xepa777 ?

    Sold all my FB in June of 2018 and dumped it all in to TSLA. Wow what a great decision that was. I didn't like the direction the product was going and just thought it could only go downhill.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    You are thinking way too logically! Wouldn't a compressing P/E that is below 100 on a company that is growing at about 50% per year make the stock price go up? Apparently Tesla was only a good bet when it was losing money, now that it is making money hand over fist everyone wants to sell the...

    Model Y Tow Hitch: 2 Questions

    No, the 80% rule doesn't apply to any car or truck, you are just fine towing up to the recommended maximum. Otherwise they would have made the recommended maximum 20% less. Not sure where you heard the 80% rule but that is silly. I will say, the heavier the load the more dangerous it is so use...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Very good points, Tesla is a profitable business and they need to keep it that way (and most on here, including me, are betting they do with skin in the game). I think we are saying very similar things with some nuance.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Close but not fully accurate. I think a better way to put it is Tesla wants to get the most number of cars on the road to accelerate the world's transition to sustainable energy. I'm reaching a bit with the following statement but seeing Tesla's margins I actually believe they want to sell...

    Thanks for keeping us on topic in the investor thread...🙃

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    What does this have to do with investing? I think I've got a case of the Monday's, came here to see the happenings around the stock price and the fact that my phone screen actually does still have the ability to show green colors and it's all posts about the war and off topic. Thanks in...
