    Just came across this thread. Wow, I'm glad this exists, and people aren't putting these types of posts in the investor discussion 🤣

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

    I bought some today at $180.25 and thought I had a deal. Of course it continued lower, but... I feel good about it. I've got about 10% more now than I had in May... I've been buying all the way down. Despite its fall over the last year, my TSLA stock is worth 14x what it was worth when it...

    HMMM OK the market averages have turned upwards over the last 5 minutes but TSLA still falling like a stone

    Higher lows, though. Another day ending slightly down or neutral

    TSLA is down 3.26%. Not sure it's that unusual/Elon selling based on this:

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

    Any time the media trumpet "Tesla growth rate falls below Elon's promised 50%" we should remind them it probably wasn't a promise and more importantly, EM talked about an average growth rate of 50%. So far since his original guidance, Tesla has exceeded 50%. But it's perfectly OK to grow at...

    TSLA went from $25.16 to $11.80 (46.9% of the high) between December 2018 and June 2019. Many here sat through that and it didn't feel good. But look what happened later. TSLA is currently at $193.32 which is 46.6% of the $414.50 ATH. So just a hair under the previous drop. We have been...

    Don't stocks typically rally after an election? Due to all the "mystery" getting replaced with "clarity" ? Asking for a friend 🤣

    Just did a quick survey of wait times on Tesla's website. Everything is available in November 2022 if you select higher trims. But for base models...: S base spec November 2022 3 base spec November 2022 (LR not available to configure, but lots of new inventory to choose from) Y base spec...

    Tesla were calling up people who had ordered Model Y Long Range to see if they would want an Austin-built standard range instead, for a bit less $$$. Without getting too specific about the car's details. (279-mile EPA range was known) I think the act of finally putting it on the website...

    Interesting sentence in that article: "The Tesla Model Y was the top selling automobile in the world in September."

    Is it correct that Toyota is nowhere to be found on those charts? What a change. Newcomer Tesla is the world's largest carmaker and Toyota isn't even getting its own name (hidden somewhere in "others")

    Naturally Tesla has to say the new colours are not available out of the other factories for technical reasons. If they say "we're working on adding them, we think they'll be available in about a month" - great way to soften demand!!! Expect the new colours to become available everywhere else -...

    The goons do understand this. The investment media works by gambling that casual investors don't do enough research... and take headlines and first few bullet points as the truth. Investors who really understand Tesla don't believe this nonsense, or fall for these games over and over and over...

    TSLA climbing nicely, looks like someone big has decided to get in before the ER Oddly... the 1.2 million stock volume spike has disappeared. You gotta wonder how accurate Fidelity Active Trader is, when it shows 1.2 million stocks traded and then something else 5 minutes later

    The overhang is that EM might sell stock. Once that is out of the way, we don't need to think about Twitter... it has nothing to do with Tesla - unless TSLA bears are able to connect the two with fictional FUD.

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

    Fair points... maybe worth mentioning that the Semi that was revealed had some sort of drag reduction panels on its sides, between the tractor cab and the trailer. These are now gone. Which won't help the aero.

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

    Tesla has sold Model 3's in the $35,000 bracket, well below the industry's average vehicle transaction price, and has had to raise prices due to COGS inflation and the ridiculous demand which we all know has led to wait times of over a year. To say Tesla is "content to occupy the higher end"...

    RE: Semi... it was revealed 5yrs ago and the presentation at that time said it would cruise at under 2kW. Since then, Tesla's motors and power electronics have become more efficient. Plus... didn't they go from a 4-motor setup to a 3-motor setup? It's the same system as Torque Sleep in the...

    Mr. Bull here... Tesla has an enormous earnings report due in 12 calendar days. Moody's will probably alter their rating after that. I'm expecting TSLA to do much better after that. Wouldn't be surprised if it rallies next week off of this oversold position. I don't think they will give out...

    How come Ford is allowing Foxconn to produce a Model B... but won't allow Tesla to produce a Model E ???

    Ford F-150 Lightning base model gets its second price hike even before it is one year old. Now starting at $52,000 🤣🤣🤣 The $39,000 base price was b.s. as I had suspected Perhaps worth pointing out that Ford's stock F is at exactly the same price where it was at 12 years ago when TSLA went public.

    Where were you between December 2018 and June 2019??? TSLA fell from $24.79 ($372-ish before any of the splits... pretty darn high) to $11.80 ($177-ish). That was pretty brutal

    Woah... too much way, WAY-OFF TOPIC stuff in this thread (the Ukraine/EM Twitter thing) People who claim all the non-Tesla stuff that EM tweets about are relevant to TSLA are just as bad as any bear making up reasons to diss TSLA. We should be setting an example here and making sure we...

    Sorry Krugerrand... as soon as I saw this the other day (link below) I wondered where they were getting the data from, why they were depicting it in the same way that Google Maps does when depicting the chronological usage of retail stores and businesses, and if there would be any expansion of...

    Very impressed so far. We have been watching Boston Dynamics videos for years. Tesla is catching up to where Boston Dynamics is now... at an amazing rate... and obviously Tesla will soon pass them by, 'cos Boston Dynamics don't have mass production expertise or FSD/AGI computer. This is...

    They do have two massive new gigafactories ramping up, both of which are singularly dedicated to producing what is about to be the world's fastest-selling car. Doubling the number of factories producing cars. Does that not count for anything? It's not exactly like the phrase "all things being...

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

    Very funny. When Tesla sales really start to fall because competitors are winning buyers with their larger variety of models... Tesla can easily release into more segments. Sure, I would like to see something to rival (for example) the Suburban & Escalade. But it doesn't sell enough to bother...

    I really do not know why the Berlin deliveries effort is trying to "crunch" at the end of the quarter. Tesla The Company is so big and successful now that they don't need to impress at the end of the quarter. I mean, let's say there's gonna be a YoY 70% increase in deliveries, and it will be...

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

    Sorry to break in and talk about TSLA :) nice to see some 3% relief after that brutal prior week of macro pain. TSLA is still stuck in a range it first entered in July. Hopefully next week we will emerge out of that range. I realised no-one will be attributing any TSLA climbing next week to...

    What we should expect from AI Day 2022 is... Monday morning's media to claim the event was underwhelming. A bust. Not measuring up to the hype.

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

    Seems as if waiting lists aren't getting longer. Perhaps Tesla has found the right balance between massive, UNFAIRLY FAT profits and actually reducing demand for its cars. Now, as factory output increases, they can start to pull demand levers. (Not talking about advertising... ewwww!!!)...

    Woot! Was able to buy in around $296 and $295. All set now for the Q3 deliveries announcement.
