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

    I missed it while listening for the umpteenth time from our wealth advisor why we should sell because overweighted. He's worried by a sudden Fed rate hike. Politics will be more determinative in my view.

    When I was a young father, I used to make my own. My kids loved them.

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

    Better "extinguished" than extinct, like wise leadership nearly everywhere. Pogo is right and Godot never comes except in occasional false flags. But at least TSLA is up today. I remember the effort of solace by my first wife's Wellesley roommate: "what do you expect from a day which begins by...

    The Dems should go highest and use one of their reconciliation options—they have four now if memory serves.

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

    Our wealth manager has urged us to take some profits in light of Tesla recent growth (last two years). We moved enough cash to pay off mortgage, without selling TSLA which is still at 90+ percentage of holding.

    Tesla Model S More ‘Desirable’ Than Rolls-Royce Phantom: Study

    I don't want my grey poupon splashed all over my tie.

    Not an attorney but taught a lot of USG over the years, this sounds like a serious challenge to states' rights so is only a remote possibility.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable My public high school was kind of a feeder school for MIT, Buzz Aldrin graduated about four years prior to me and at one point I was impressed the Director of MIT Admissions knew my high school counselor. A Belgian...

    None of this negates the virtue of science understanding by leaders. That vacancy is bad for leaders in business and government, as well as for followers. Who do we hail here? Some of the founders were contributors to science of their day, notably Franklyn, Jefferson in agronomy and...

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

    Why would they want to change attitude on Tesla? Top leadership mostly educated in engineering, as opposed to law, here. That's why they are so much better at business. Cf Harvard Business Sch. "managing our way to decline," several years ago (compared to Europeans). Bezos and Musk–-great...

    I wonder if this macro drop is negative reaction to reversal by government on climate change? Should be the reverse,...oh, the market.

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

    For decades I defined politics as the struggle for control of peoples' picture of reality. So it is in businesses which advertise and pay dividends (bribes for purchase).

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

    Our wealth manager has an "exit plan" for me which he will call about "after Christmas." I've informed him nature already has three scenarios. My wife already knows my deathbed advice: "Don't sell TSLA." HODLAD.

    Unlearning how to read at my age is proceeding apace. Losing mental access to nouns and spelling errors are rampant. Thought you need to know the future. The spell checker here is invaluable.

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

    Through new products, improvement in existing ones (including FSD), new factories, and new markets (say in Asia), Tesla's business should expand 40-50% each and every year. Profits are likely to be more variable and less certain. But SP should always grow. As with everything timing is less...

    I'm curious of what @Kruggerand thinks about this review: https://www.washingtonpost.com/entertainment/books/feline-philosophy/2020/11/24/3749983a-2db5-11eb-860d-f7999599cbc2_story.html I'm aware of the numerical answer by mice. Just a wild guess, is it 24?

    In my case I'm too lazy to learn about short term trading. Been buying since 2010. Early buying is my advice but still buying. (Protected by relatively low income.)

    Politics until Jan 6-20? Or healthcare until 3/21? Hospitals already shot and health care workers stretched to point of death/resignation or near exhaustion. Moderate impact on economy /s. We are 90% invested in TSLA and 5.4% cash or money market. Rest is big chunk of ARKG. MIT Alumni(ae) mag...

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

    Closer to death than most, one occasionally muses about things one has done wrong, even when a non-believer in Judgment Day. One is reminding when my sister and I threw black pepper into our sevenish year younger brother's face as he was innocently standing in his crib one day in 1945 just to...

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

    Can't say for sure, but I can choose whether culprit is informed of reason for action and I always exercise informing. Seems only fair and prudent. There are auto options that can be selected. As a really half-assed mod I have the time to enter personal touch. The real deals, the others, don't...

    There may be a way. Isolated reports of UFOs executing seemingly physically improbable sharp turns suggest, if an actual craft, that an advanced civilization has shortcuted a way to bend space for locative purposes. They call it "pinching space," if memory serves. Hence the term "a pinch in time...

    O I used to think "reality is a(n) hallucination which is socially acceptable" was an original insight until I came across The Social Construction of Reality - Wikipedia which makes the same point less histrionically and, of course, with more authority. I remain convinced shorting Tesla is...

    Near term price action leading up to the Election

    As it stands, the Green New Deal is a wonderful package because its authors took care to consult with all stakeholders. "All" may be too strong. Mind flatulence there.

    Near term price action leading up to the Election

    Your countryman,Thomas Piketty, has shown the folly of trickle down and its handmaiden lower growth. We need an FDR now although he didn't know what he was doing and never primed the pump enough until WWII according to common lore. We know now but the politics are bad. Biden is no visionary and...

    Near term price action leading up to the Election

    That's always a possibility but there should be warning signs and historically the FED has usually erred on the side of caution. If the Dems get their way stimulus will increase consumption at the bottom (higher minimum wage) and jobs for infrastucture. Reeps too, but bias toward tax cuts for...

    Near term price action leading up to the Election

    I can't answer your question but am waiting for a bounce upward to sell some, temporarily, to bracket around vagaries of the election, but not for the reason offered by our wealth manager. He was worried about FED reversing easy money course. I thought that silly because "the FED is the only...

    Old people need to husband energy. Mercifully, sex is the first to go, releasing a lot of energy for survival. Combined with memory loss, the miraculous appearance of grandchildren by a process long forgotten, is surely at least as important as the president's expectation the virus will...

    Here's another mathematical oddity which my limited keyboard cannot demonstrate: did you know that the integral of e to the x equals the function of u to the n? How to explain: I have a 14 year old brain imprisoned in an 84 year old body. My friends already know that.

    That was released, if memory serves, as a rationale after the fact of the bill. Since my Dad was in the heavy construction industry, we were glad. Also glad for Thule since he arranged purchase of all the equipment needed for construction by what I presume to have been a joint venture. He said...
