    Blog Report: Tesla’s Plan for a Chinese Factory in Trouble

    My view based on observations I’ve made about Tesla in China. Tesla already works with some Chinese suppliers and employs a good number of people directly and indirectly in numerous Chinese cities. It’s very possible Chongqing or Tianjin might be the cities Tesla is eyeing for environmentally...

    2017 Investor Roundtable:General Discussion

    Your snarky response is not appreciated. My posts fit in both sections. General investor discussion is actually more appropriate since my posts have more to do with stocks and stock market manipulation than the economy.

    Okay. Have most active members who post things that aren't being discussed everywhere gone on vacation, or has the discussion become so one sided that insightful comments are being mostly ignored? I love Tesla and love these moves, but anyone who doesn't think it's a big problem that the broad...

    Beginning to wonder if it's a conincidence that Trump has Tweeted lies or carefully tailored posts every time the market looks like it might end down. The broad market and VIX should have ended down 1%+ based on fundamentals, being way overbought and the many impeachment worthy events Trump did...

    The market can only stay rigged for so long. At some point, the critical extremes are hit, and everything stops working. I love Tesla, but Trump, the FED, GS, or some large MM are toying with the entire market, which will be very bad for all stocks, when convergence occurs. Surprised no-one...

    Hi everyone. It's been a while since I posted. I've been waiting for a good opportunity to say something that isn't already being said, and I think today might be that day. 1) Spicer Resigned today. 2) People have forgotten Trump is still facing 100+ lawsuits. 3) If Trump fires or attempts to...

    If Trump used this approach, the cost for the US to issue new debt would skyrocket, and it would be disastrous for the US economy. Also, a downgrade would almost certainly follow.

    Just read Trump's claim that he will reveal a plan for sensible comprehensive tax reform on Wednesday. I suppose this "plan" will be just as viable as the half baked "alternative" to Obamacare, that Trump touted and continues to tout as a brilliantly thought out idea, that in reality was a...

    As the April 28th deadline approaches, the GOP is promising there won't be a government shutdown or default. The media is beginning to discuss this, but appears to believe the GOP has a plan for comprehensive tax reform and raising the debt ceiling. I'm far from convinced. Did Fox really say the...

    Maybe Elon's saving it, and a number of other items that can be announced if the broad meeker suffers should there be a government shutdown? The more I read in the news, and the closer we get to April 28th, the more convinced I am that a government shutdown of some sort will happen. The...

    Isn't it convenient how every pundit and journalist in the world is thrilled to flood the news feed with "Tesla issues recall" (Ignoring the word "Proactive"), but only a few people wrote articles about "Tesla owner walks away unscathed after driving his Model S off a 400 foot cliff"?

    Total cost to Tesla for this recall? Probably nothing. Since this part is from a third party supplier, the supplier is likely responsible for all costs associated with the recall and replacing the part, Number of incidents resulting from this problem? None. Also, if I understand the potential...

    It's very possible Apple already owns a stake in Tesla. It wouldn't necessarily be material and therefore require a disclosure due to how much Apple makes and how much cash Apple has. It would be crazy for Apple to buy Tesla. It would make a lot more sense for Apple to invest in Tesla factories...

    Read the snippet very closely. 1) "Reported" chemical spill. 2) Several people reported feeling sick. (To be seen if they are sick) 3) Portion of factory closed as a precaution. (Proactive response to a potential problem that might not be a problem at all.)

    The person getting way too much press today who is trying to get Elon to "dump trump" should sell his Tesla stock, or back off. Even if Trump ignores everything Elon says, it's a strong positive that Elon is on his advisory council, and there are many reasons to believe Trump is listening to...

    I'm still very nervous about what will happen on April 29th, and am hopeful Trump won't do anything too crazy before then in an attempt to create a stand off with US debt holders.

    Can someone please ask Elon on Twitter when we will find out pricing for Tesla Roofs? Walmart currently pays millions for every Electric Truck they use (if they are still using them?). If Tesla can produce a Electric Truck, even if it costs $500,000 - $1 million, it will be a bargain for large...

    They haven't announced pricing, as best as I can tell. If they have, please post a link. The ITC will reduce the cost of a roof by thousands. If the price (before ITC) is comparable to the cost of a new roof, almost everyone installing a new roof will buy a Tesla roof.

    Today was a bear raid on a bad day for the broad market. Seriously, why the heck would Bob Lutz, and the CEO of Ford speak about their view about Tesla on the same day?

    This video from 2011 does a great job explaining what the CIS is, and provides some context what is happening today.

    Yes, yes, and absolutely yes about the debt ceiling being a big deal. I don't know if the US will default. It concerns me that no-one is asking that question. It's also possible that some unpredictable event will happen in the next few months. The US government has already quietly implemented...

    I hate conspiracy theories, but I think this might have merit, and reflects some of the concerns I mentioned in my past few posts about Trump's use of diversions. Does anyone honestly think Trump used $100 million of missiles to launch an attack in Syria? Irrespective of whether or not the...

    Long term, Tesla is either worth $100 or $2000, according to Goldman Sachs. Take your pick. This doesn't mean Tesla won't follow the broad market when the broad market returns to reality. I strongly encourage everyone who is long to exercise caution. The next few weeks are likely to be very...

    Worth noting the yield on T-Bills has been significantly increasing. There is another Treasury auction on March 30th. Last auction raised ~$400 billion, a third of the tender offer, almost all of which has been used to keep the debt Ceiling from being breached. While everyone is busy taking...

    Just came across this snipppet about the US Treasury issuing a lot of bonds at a fairly high price. Also, this might mean the US Treasury is running low on cash, after using reserves to avoid crossing the debt ceiling, ($20 trillion.) There is another auction tomorrow that might cause it to...

    You think it's a good idea if the government were to shutdown for 6 months out of the year??? Are you joking? It would be a terrible thing if the US government simply stopped spending money. They want to shrink government in all the wrong places (education, environment, federal land), expand...

    For what it's worth, Bollinger bands are basically a form of standard deviations. The longer Volatility remains subdued, the more bizarre volatility will get when it returns.

    Your point is not valid. Tesla is part of the broad market and therefore my comment is related to Tesla. Also, your post was entirely focused on Trump.

Last year Goldman Sachs said Tesla is either worth $100, $1000, or something like $3,000...
