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

    Just celebrated 18 months sober yesterday, after 40 years of continuous drinking. Kicked an additional addictive habit along the way. I am a new, better person. It was worth the hard work. Congrats on taking the step!

    Sounds like great not an advice so we went ahead and took it :)

    I think they would e-coat the BIW first. Then no corrosion issues.

    They have had their moments of glory through FUD and have celebrated. Not a sustainable celebration however. Now it's our turn to celebrate, and it will be sustainable in more way than one. :cool:

    I didn't think we would have any meaningful MMD today, but sorta glad we did. Just used up the last of my dry powder. :)

    I was always taught "3 lefts makes a right" but 3 of him is a horrible thought with this creep people call a snake. We need a different animal to describe him, snakes are good; an essential balance in nature. You know, eating rats and that sort of stuff... Looks like some rats are getting...

    Papafox's Daily TSLA Trading Charts

    Looks like a change to their strategy, with the flip. Amazing that they get away with this, and constantly repeat the cycle. I enjoy seeing these real facts come out to a big audience from those who almost always tell lies. Profit by lies is their only motivator, and they are not good people.

    Looks like a real not-a-fake-bankwupcy is going to happen... Hate giving them clicks but this one is worth it Faraday Future lays off part of its workforce, cuts wages of the rest Edit- I thought that was Bumbleberg, ok to click for all

    TSLA Market Action: 2018 Investor Roundtable

    (Pre) Market Action - - Smallish volume, but interesting cap at the top with 262.0000 as a ruler-flat number. And then a quick punch in the face to go back up when some biggish sale took it down to 258.0100 Not enough market knowledge to say what went on, but it is interesting to watch this sort...

    Minor clarification... e-coating is not electrostatic like powder coating. There are no high voltages (like 6-10kV for powder) involved. It is more like anodizing or plating. Fairly high currents in the rectifiers for e-coating (all DC) unlike powder application where those power supplies are...

    Major Colision Repair, Whats your experience?

    "It depends" is the answer. Sounds like the hinge may have pulled a structural member a bit out of whack, lots of lever there. Did you look at the parts list cost and what items the labor was? Recently got my S back from the repair shop; big deer hit drivers side front. I thought around $8K in...

    Yes. From the article- "Most dealers have their entire net worth sunk into a dealership so it was important for us to know what's going on,"

    Yup! And my "Lucky Thirteen" hit very near that dip :cool: Not much powder left, but grab whatever I can

    TSLA Market Action: 2018 Investor Roundtable

    Yeah, if the MMD is over. Last time I predicted something it went opposite. What to do???
  21. WentOffGrid

    TSLA Market Action: 2018 Investor Roundtable

    Hope MMD has ended. I finally got the timing close to pick up more shares. Dry powder just arrived last night :D
  22. WentOffGrid

    TSLA Market Action: 2018 Investor Roundtable

    Stay calm... this is only a test of the MMD, just 4 minutes early.

    TSLA Market Action: 2018 Investor Roundtable

    Volume is way down, less than half of normal. Does not appear like there was any meaningful short pushes. The stock is a bargain. People are buying it up in the face of a down market. My uneducated guess

    Macros down (except gold :p), TSLA up .4% :)

    Low volume pre-market pojama trading, ~31K shares. Spikey too.

    Well I for one am an exception to what you wrote and I take offense to it. And no, I am not looking for anybody to feel sorry for me, I simply did (do) not know what I am doing. You are tarring everybody with your brush! The first time I bought ANY stock was after The Tweet. (Imagine, THIS is...

    Me too, I am not good at this... but by staying long, a few $ should not be significant enough to worry over. Looking at it continue to fall still makes me angry even though I know darn well it will go back up to new levels. :cool:

    Just added some hay to my long pile! :) Been saving some powder for $298, after the delivery numbers I didn't think it would get that low. Love that MMD (sometimes...)

    Computer History and Advocacy Thread

    My business in 1983 ran on a CBM256 with quad-stacked 8050's wired with IEEE-488. Fun times! Related to the history part, I collect core and other cool old tech. IBM 700 series, Russian, etc.

    Wish I knew what dip to buy at. Can I borrow somebody's crystal ball??? This stock gives a new meaning to volatility... Already been cut with that falling knife before. I have plenty of dry powder coming, liquidating other things because this is too good of an opportunity to pass up. Stay...

    The battle for $295 is raging.

    TSLA Market Action: 2018 Investor Roundtable

    Wow, what a big jump up in a small period of time. If it holds/goes higher, you will definitely see shaking in those shorties.

    That happened to me around the same time out in AZ. My car was badged a 75 but the price was a 60. They wound up changing the badge. I still enjoy the faster supercharging and money to buy more TSLA

    Already hocked the farm at $279, too late for me. Got cut with that friggin' falling knife. Again. <sigh> when will I learn? But on the bright side, there is plenty of up side. Just wish I could buy more at these lows.

    General Discussion: 2018 Investor Roundtable

    MB's engineering team is one of the best in the world. Unfortunately for them, the product management team is guiding what they do. And Zetsche is who guides product management. Time to market being a forced constraint, they are not looking at this with a truly long-term view. Just throwing $B's...

    Have been picking up shares at dips on the way down, to help make up for when I bought at $350. Looking at my average price going down makes me feel warm :) especially when the long future is bright! I recently got a boatload (well, a really big container ship load) at $285 and if it goes down...

    Tesla is an Undervalued Growth Juggernaut

    A whole lotta CAPEX is needed for those sorts of numbers. Takes expensive factories (and expensive IP) to make the best transportation. But that's one of the reasons I like TSLA, and why I will always be one of the longs... they invest in the type of infrastructure that I believe in!

    ISS had a leak caused by Russian orbital module

    Looks like the fix worked. It's held pressure perfect. "Flight controllers at their respective Mission Control centers in Houston and Moscow worked together with the crew to effect a repair option in which Soyuz commander Sergey Prokopyev of Roscosmos used epoxy on a gauze wipe to plug the hole...

    Bang-BOOM! Took a big-caliber shot at 293 with all the powder I had. "Hope is not a strategy, but it is the only thing that made sense to me this morning" -Bob
