    What other tech stock to consider?

    PTRA went public June 15, 2021, down about 63% since then.

    What other tech stock to consider?

    Well, if you zoom out it doesn’t look so great. I made a small investment since I believe the future for EV busses is good and the company seems to be generally well run and expanding.

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

    TD Ameritrade has postsplit price but still showing pre-split share balance. Portfolio value is down 77% this morning 😳 yes, still a bit glitchy, my overall account balance is now correct but my TSLA shares show a 207% one day gain

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

    This also benefits customers in states like Virginia that charge a yearly personal property tax on the value of the vehicle. This is typically based on the cost of a base model without options and can be quite substantial over the life of the car.

    Virginia Anti-icing Legislation, EV Law

    There is a new law that goes into effect July 1, 2022 to discourage non EVs (or EVs that are not charging) from occupying a space reserved for EV charging. The law seems pretty lax (max fine $25 and localities can't exceed that) and it requires the space to have a sign that includes the words...

    Virginia - New Dominion Energy Time-of-Use Plan

    We also were on the old pilot program, called the whole house + EV plan, choosing not to go with the separate meter due to additional installation costs. It was essentially a Time of Use plan for the whole house so we shifted to cooling the home and running appliances more off peak. However when...

    Model 3 Trunk Button Stopped Working

    So you bought a Model 3 in the first Model year of production and discovered problems related to build quality. So now you are going to purchase a brand new model vehicle from Rivian a new company out of frustration?

    thoughts on Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus Elect for Model 3?

    Depends how you drive it. If you’re doing frequent 0-60 runs or driving with extreme cornering then you might appreciate a more performance tire. Otherwise probably fine.

    thoughts on Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus Elect for Model 3?

    At the moment, tire rack has the 18" in stock but not the 19"

    Insurance rate increase

    My Progressive auto renewal premium in Virginia just jumped 25%, no claims/violations/credit score changes and I have multiple policies with them for several years. I am considering the switch to Tesla's product, I wouldn't mind the link to safety score if the safety score wasn't so bizarre...

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

    Not a good deal for TWTR investors (which I am not). I can only imagine the lawsuits on this “funding secured “fail.

    What other tech stock to consider?

    Any thoughts on Proterra PTRA? They seem to be an EV niche that Tesla is not currently addressing with municipal busses and supplying batteries for other vehicles like delivery vans etc. Seems like they have had decent revenue growth. Stock is sitting at an all time low.

    Rappahannock Electric Cooperative (REC) EV Pilot Program in Virginia

    There is a new EV Pilot program from Rappahannock Electric Cooperative (REC) which services parts of Virginia. It is a simple time of use benefit with a $7 per month credit applied if you agree to charge your EV off peak which they define as 9pm-5am and 10am to 2pm year round. This is limited to...

    Service Center Sterling VIrginia

    Sorry to hear that! Can you elaborate? I would say given the 19 month gap since the last post on this thread, nobody else has felt the need to post a bad experience (or a good one for that matter). Hope your experience was an exception to the norm, I personally haven't needed service recently...

    Tesla insurance is now available in Oregon, Virginia and Colorado.

    I was able to get a quote after deleting and reinstalling the app. Came out to $50 more per month than I pay with Progresssive for similar coverages.

    Yes, I also had to delete app and reinstall to get the quote. $50 more per month than I am paying now for Progressive. Hard pass.

    Model Y Repair Experience (Tesla Insurance)

    Man stories like this make me want to have a spare Tesla on order just in case. Long (7 months!) wait for repairs only to then have to wait who knows how long for a new build.

    Tesla Insurance Safety Score For Multiple Cars?

    Do both Teslas have FSD?

    Tesla insurance and the yoke

    I get the big brother factor but the counter point is the price point. Sure for a 5% discount totally not worth it. But what if the discount becomes 50%? I think this insurance score is in it's infancy, the crudeness of the safety score makes it seem a poor assessment of insurance risk (like...

    NADA Official Car Guide using VIN and Virginia Personal Property Taxes

    Yeah, I've owned 3 Teslas in Virginia since 2013 and the assessments are sometimes questionable, might be worth an inquiry to your local tax assessor. First of all, most vehicles are supposed to be assessed on the base model with no accessories. Traditional cars picture the optional upgrades...

    Could he purchase on margin? He’s got plenty of TSLA for a securities backed loan etc.

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

    Great summary and I agree. However, I recall several years back Tesla was periodically reducing prices of some models. At times it seemed to correlate with a transition to a new trim line/feature (in order to move the older stock) but as an investor, I recall a sinking feeling that I was...

    What other tech stock to consider?

    I follow iShares China Large-Cap ETF ( symbol FXI). Currently trading at multi-year lows likely due to geopolitical events (theory that a Russia-like power grab with Taiwan or excess allegiance to Russia in regards to sanctions/supplying other support could result in further weakness in Chinese...

    WaPo article not written by Faiz Siddiqui so I clicked and read it. https://www.washingtonpost.com/climate-environment/2022/03/07/biden-epa-heavy-trucks/ No mention of Tesla in the article about the Biden administration's efforts to reduce heavy truck pollution (though I think that's a truck...

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

    I agree, unfortunate tweet with expected short term impact on share price. As for the longer term effects on Tesla's brand, Hitler literally helped VW get started in Germany and most people seem to have gotten over that.

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

    Another Faiz Siddiqui Tesla hit-piece in WaPo, he's been on a tear this week with anti Tesla FUD stories so I'd say peak FUD is near. Also, please try not to click on links to his articles as I can picture Bezos giving him a quarter for each one.

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

    Ha, joke's on them since there seems to be zero correlation between Tesla's actual financial performance and short term movements in the TSLA share price.
