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

    This makes clear that the Model Y LR-AWD is still higher in price than it was for most of 2021. I think Tesla can handle that. Performance Y is the bargain now.

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

    This is a great buying opportunity - for both TSLA and the Model Y I could not get in December (unfortunately, I convinced my brother to buy a Model Y in December).

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

    Prices were literally $7500 less days ago (if you could find a car, I could not). Who is going to buy now ? Prices are going to have to come down like in China, regardless of US rebates (which many don't qualify for). I would then expect an explosion in demand.

    SF Bay Accident Surveillance Footage

    It looks like he might have not responded to the Auto Pilot nags and the car was simply pulling itself over and stopping as its supposed to ? That seems like the simplest explanation. Regardless, there is something wrong with the driver. He could have just corrected and gotten on the gas to...

    This is surprising in light of the posts here I have seen that there is no available inventory ? I am braced for Q4 numbers, please prove it wrong !

    So free speech unless Elon says no. Got it.

    Elon & Twitter

    Seem like Elon is almost trying to show how good Twitter actually was, and how bad Twitter can be if everything was decided by the whim of just one guy.

    Sounds like they were riding in a Model X? Should be some video from the cameras coming.

    What range does the car show at 90% state of charge ?

    Semi seems to be the best Tesla yet. Not sure why there is not more attention, it’s a total industry game changer!

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

    I like the question and your list, but the main factor will need to be an improving macro environment. Covid, consumer, wars and inflation, the same things that have been going on. TSLA is not an island, it’s very dependent on the overall market and can X multiple any market rise.

    Waymo

    Seeing the I-Pace Robotaxis all over Palo Alto, you can't help but be struck by how elaborate the LIDAR and camera systems festooned all over the car appear. The I-Paces look really kinda experimentally kluged together and I can't imagine they are inexpensive either, which does appear to be a...

    Home Charging Efficiency Dropped to 40% with 2022.40.4.1

    When I charge overnight at home in my garage, I consistently get 90%+ efficiency per Teslafi (a little lower when the weather is cold). Got the 2022.40.4.1 software update on November 11th. Charged November 12th, only 40% efficiency - 51% to 86%, 31 kWh added, 78 kWh used. Charged November...

    Power consumption increase - only due to temperature?

    Here is the temperature efficiency for my 2020 Model S Dual Motor (Long Range). As you can see, the efficiency drops near 50% when the temperature gets below 25 degrees F.

    With Cybertruck mass deliveries not until 2024, what else would be a catalyst to move the TSLA share price in the next year ? Gigafactories, FSD, robotaxi, increased margins and ultimately earnings ?

    When assigned BPS shares, I typically: 1) Sell the assigned shares, and then 2) Sell the protective PUTS of the BPS If assigned early, usually puts me a little ahead of max loss

    Not trying to get into a debate, but go look at EV-CPO--there is a New" tab. In some cases, there is more new Tesla inventory than used.

    Elon & Twitter

    Seemingly clever whataboutism aside, the perps at VW are long gone and have been suffering consequences, including prison time and upcoming trials. But does our CEO have accountability ? I think the current TSLA SP does reflect that there are some consequences. I don't believe there is any...

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

    Not sure why you think people are absorbed in media or what that has to do with the impression of the Tesla brand. But the point is your friends and spouse will buy a Tesla, but they likely would have already bought Tesla before. There is, however, there is a segment of people, who used to...

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

    Elon's behavior has also eclipsed the once stellar Tesla brand. Instead of conjuring the image of high tech electric vehicles, Tesla is now about Elon and his antics. Many friends (including my wife) will not buy a Tesla any longer. My wife's eTron GT is also making me rethink the value...

    Tesla replacing ultrasonic sensors with Tesla Vision

    Soon front camera will be required (like backup cameras are today). https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/americas-cars-trucks-are-getting-bigger-are-front-blind-zones-children-rcna52109 Then Tesla's vision will be complete. Well, if they can also have cameras that can see the front wheels . . .

    In the Chicago area and from Chicago up to Minnesota (Rockford, Madison, Tomah, Eau Claire) it's been "Complimentary Session" on all EA chargers for weeks. Not sure what is going on with EA, this can't just be one giant snafu ? We've been road tripping with the wife's e-Tron, and the EA...

    Tesla Raising Price of FSD to $15,000, AI Director States "We Can Build a Car That Never Crashes"

    If they actually made such a statement, very disappointed Tesla is raising the prospect "we can build a car that literally never crashes."

    My 2020 model S with free unlimited charging was just declared totaled by my insurance, is there anything I can do?

    Yeah, that was quite the Fail if FSD was engaged and driving. It's never going to be for me until I can completely check out and feel safe enough to take a nap. These types of unnecessary errors and bugs need to be greatly reduced and eliminated entirely. Meanwhile, as long as I am in the...

    My 2020 model S with free unlimited charging was just declared totaled by my insurance, is there anything I can do?

    What a bummer. I have a 2020 with FUSC and it would suck to lose it, but I think I would try to get some diminished value and move on. I have home charging and even though I drive 30K miles a year and take road trips, I only value FUSC at $800 a year.

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

    Yes, cutting 10% is something all mega-sized companies can, and probably need to do. Tell me why this is not helping, the stock price ?? The most likely reason is Elon's insistently childish tweeting style about his "feelings" being "super bad" about the economy, a dour prediction about the...

    I agree with the need to work in an office for most jobs. But does he really need to deliver the message this way ? Seems like a once great leader is letting things go to his head and starting to lose it.

    Good thinking, no Twitter, let's wade in with politics. Only feeding my friends who recently decided that they will never buy an Tesla. Dems don't drive as much anyway. Maybe its a genius move to switch more Repubs to Tesla. Why are we even talking about politics ?

    I dunno, my in-laws have an Insight . . . it's a nice car, but, how to put it, not exciting. They are 82 and 80 yrs old and I think Honda is discontinuing the Insight ?

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    Have you looked at rolling for a debit and selling calls at the same expiration to offset the cost and margin ?

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    FlamingPIG had a similar question that I responded to. https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/posts/6429144/ You can generally keep rolling for premiums/improved strikes if you are not using spreads. You do need to catch up with the SP eventually (very possible with TLSA) and it can tie up your...

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    I think it's very possible to roll CCs for some time. When TSLA hit $890s the week before Christmas, I had CCs in the$ 900s, which quickly went ITM. My cost basis for shares is very low, so I began rolling for strike improvement (and small premiums) as the SP rose up to $1200 after the New...

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    I have been rolling since January earnings 3X -p950/-p910 expiring this Friday 18 FEB. With the SP at $860, I am considering closing it out this week and just taking near the max $12K loss. If I were closing and taking the loss on -p950/-p910, any reason not to open up the IC by adding 30X...

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    You also don't have to roll all your BPSs, maybe leave a few shorter term? If you roll your BPSs out, you can make some of them an Iron Condor and sell call spreads at the same expiration for no additional margin as long as you stay within the same spreads and contracts. You can't lose on...

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    A bit conflicting here what is riskier, BPS or BCS. Seems when TSLA was shooting up, BCS were riskier as the SP was generally rising. With the macros now turning negative and the SP retreating, BPS are riskier now. Is it really as simple as they are about the same, just depends on what the...

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    Thanks, going far out would take away some stress and still have margin to work with for the rest of the year. Another question, is if the -950/+910 is rolled out to 18 FEB for a -$1 debit, I could make an Iron Condor with a matching credit spread -1040c/+1080c for +$3.47 to to pay the cost of...

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    Yes, you are all correct. I have the margin, but if it all went to max loss, it would be too painful. I wasn’t considering it could drop that much by Friday. Can’t take the risk. Taking loses, when you still have tools, is the hardest part of this.

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    Can anyone help with this question. I have 4x BPS 11 FEB -950p/+910p, that looks like can be rolled FORWARD to 4 FEB 22 and widen to -920p/+800p for $1 credit (with the SP at $905). (A) If the SP finishes OTM above $920 at expiration 4 FEB (Friday), all good. (B) If the SP is the same at...

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    I imagine those cc1200 could be rolled to keep the covered shares until they could catch up with the SP ? Also, what about adding BCS to make an IC with a pretty wide BPS -1040/+770 that was rolled out to 16 Sept 22 ? TOS will not require any more margin (as long as the expiration and spread...

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    Are you saying close half (50) the positions, with a possible max loss of $1M (50X$200)? Then, there are two months to possibly save the 4/14 1000/600 if the stock price recovers >$1000 or by getting a better roll if SP is greater than the midpoint ($800). I guess that is realizing a possible...

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    After a brutal month, I am realizing this (80% OTM, 5 DTE, $100 wide spreads, close at 80%) for $1 may be the only safe way for me to trade options. Yoona - One question I have, is how many contracts of these 80% OTM/$100 wide spreads would you do with a $100K in your account-would you do 10x...

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    $700 SP . . . that is brutal, now I understand why you are talking rolling to December. I am hoping there will at least be a relief rally (even if short-lived) that will bail out my -1050p/+780ps for 4 Feb 22
