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

    The joy's of not reading the forum for a few days haha. Here we go! Great to know! Will keep up with it on background, thanks dl003. Perhaps this is a situation where complacency breeds comfort, but I consider Tesla as a safe investment at this point. Even if we go into recession and the P/E...

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

    I wish I could just shadow someone to learn a way to low risk my way into this. I’ve got 1500 shares and have been terrified to do anything. With only a 50k income and being up like 1300-1700% over 5 years I fear I’ll always be too paralyzed to take risk as this is my one way ticket to an early...

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    I really want to get into this but would love to dip into a quick conversation if I had questions, which I will have. A revolving monthly 1% on my 1500 shares would effectively change my life as I've only made 60k in liquid a year for over a decade. Adding a few grand in the coffers would be...

    Poll - Are you waiting for the infrastructure bill before ordering?

    Yeah meant to say Jan 1, 2022. So I wondering it makes sense to somehow delay it to January 1, 2022 and even if the car is delivered after that it’ll be retroactive from then. Just not sure if I should take delivery this year or not.

    Poll - Are you waiting for the infrastructure bill before ordering?

    I ordered a Model 3 in September, with an expected delivery date for December. In October I received a call saying one was available, I wasn't ready, and I declined it. Today I received a call saying one was available, I read rumblings about this Washington stuff, so I declined it. I read that...

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

    At my first million last November, can’t believe it hasn’t been a year and I’m up an additional $364,000. I only make 50k/yr and the surreal feeling completely messes with me psychologically. It’s actually paralyzing, but as I’m paralyzed I’m taking no actions and continuing to hold which...

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

    I’m a video producer, and I run a global video studio, and I absolutely despise every single live event the Tesla runs. I do live programs several times a week and it takes practice to get it right, but it seems like the guys that they consistently hire to run their programs always have trouble...

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

    Some family already came to me with their savings and told me to invest basically for them. I told them I don't offer financial advice because I seriously am one of the most ignorant people when it comes to the market, and the only thing I feel strongly about is Tesla's future 10 years from now...

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

    Thank you for the advice, I will heed it. One of the defenses I keep repeating to everybody is that the money is locked up in untouchable for many years, I know that really is not going to change anything but I’d like to think it slows people down in thinking that I’m not gonna go out and spend...

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

    There’s no doubt there will be downside (already there has been some mentally), but at some point when Tesla is $2000/share and I finally can build my dream house, word is going to go out to anyone that visits. It was crushing to keep everything inside, having no one to talk to, and I know it’s...

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

    My dads from Texas! Love it there. interestingly other than a few friends from high school (graduated 15 years ago) reaching out to congratulate me, it’s been relatively quiet, with the exception of my parents dancing in the middle of the living room that their son had “made it,” it’s a weird...

    Hello ladies [Insert smooth talker voice here]. That would be me, I usually lurk in the shadows but this time my big mouth got my story shared by Kimbal and liked by Musk. What a simulation. Peace and Love y’all. Thanks for the nice comments. Over 1.4 million people saw that. I never shared...

    You're suddenly well off, your lifelong friends are not. Now what?

    To be honest I hadn’t the faintest idea where to start. Your mention of psychologist/therapist is the first time anyone’s ever recommended anything like that to me, so I feel pretty ignorant. There’s also financial execution worries, and not making mistakes there. I’ve rationalized everything...

    You're suddenly well off, your lifelong friends are not. Now what?

    I'm in a similar position. I really wish I had a professional to talk to about this. It stresses me out more than TSLA ever did. Good problem to have to be sure, but it's one of those things. Not only do you gotta think about friends/family's impressions of you, but also once those gains are...

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

    The word "basic" functionality Elon used for level 5 autonomy is a key word here. It could mean under wraps dev build functionality, which could mean anything as far as roll out.

    Musk supposed to take part of this live event. Starting ~now. Dunno exactly when but the event has started. waic.bestv.com.cn Edit: On second thought, it might be around 8:30PM CDT, 6:30 PM PDT. Sorry!

    Elon also made a comment about the stock being 'so high' in december and nothing came of it. Wouldn't worry about it. '

    After having listened to the TSLA Thirdrow podcast, I can say that I didn't learn anything new other than Giga Berlin isn't just a copy of Giga Shanghai - it'll have a new paintshop where it'll incorporate some 3 levels of paint to make the paint look more 3D and "pop" more and that paint tech...

    Papafox's Daily TSLA Trading Charts

    Not to be rude, but posts unrelated to Papafox's daily trading posts are usually done in the other threads such as the roundtable. If there is a specific point that you guys wish to discuss, I believe Papafox stated you can simply tag him in those threads, thus keeping this thread mostly free of...

    I’ve been a lurker and avid reader for 4 years, but without them and the great quality posts they provided I only check this forum for Papafox’s daily reports now. Way less substantive discussion happening here these days imo.

    What's happening in news? All pre-market hours were negative now we're swung majorly in the other direction. Can't find anything.

    I'd have to imagine the person(s) selling all were in on it together. That was just wayyyy too many sell orders in such an instant of time.

    Same almost. Am 32, been in TSLA for 3 years, 280k unrealized gains currently, staying until goal met of at least 500k post capital gains, never owned a house & always owned 20 year old beater cars. Debating buying house + Model Y with gains, but so many things to consider I'm paralyzed into...

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

    It is very possible that this may be the case. I follow a lot of the channels that participated in the interview, and very few pieces of information have leaked or been talked about, which I find to be very interesting. Many of those people met Elon for the first time and you'd think they'd be...

    I'm interested to know what is holding them up, as I edit multi-cam footage regularly and usually can get a 2 hour program done in an afternoon easily. Might be some non-video related issue, perhaps they had to send it to Tesla IR for approval for publication idk.

    Only closed down 0.66% ($378.99) on the day the EV rebate bill basically died, not too shabby.

    Correct. I wish I saw the look on their faces when that verdict was read.

    Unsworth Vs Musk defamation trial

    Loved how Elon managed to trick the media on his way into the courthouse using a decoy car. Can't believe the TeslaChart guy flew down just to witness the trial, his level of obsession is kinda scary and I'm glad Elon surrounded himself with security today. Looks like Elon's team had a superior...

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

    If Tesla can crack 100,000+ orders overnight, I think it would benefit them to say so to curb sideline/lazy analyst worries and/or to combat the coming spooled media narrative queuing up to spam throughout the entire day.

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

    I ordered one, also did not receive an email. I agree felt the presentation was short, lacking details about some of the features listed on the website. Only thing I don't care for is the roadster steering wheel.

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

    Which is fine, because their friends might not be as do-or-die as they are, but become interested in the fact that it's electric, do a google, and choose a Tesla vehicle that is superior in every way, then they talk to their friends like 99% of all Tesla owners do and recommend they buy a Tesla...

    Market politics

    My Democratic Governor (Wisconsin) line item vetoed Tesla being able to sell cars in Wisconsin. I'm still shocked by it, but I shouldn't be, the fossil fuel industry can corrupt anyone. Most D's talk an environmentalist game, but when the rubber hits the road I'd be weary.

    I don't know much about Ghost from Twitter, is he someone where if he says something regarding something Tesla related, we can believe it to be objective and trust worthy, or is he someone with a heavy bias? I've seen him post here and there but not enough to know how much weight to put into...

    Tesla Energy and utility scale projects

    I apologize if I've come to the wrong thread and missed out on any specific conversations that might have answered this but: Musk stated they plan on getting to 1TWh of battery production. At 28GWh of production today, Panasonic wavering on future investment, and (to my understanding) no known...

    It's easier when, like me, owning 300 common stock since June 2017 and only seeing red for 28 months :) The ups and downs mean nothing and make you numb to everything.

    As to the reason of why you changed your mind: 1. What specific line item are you correcting? You won't say. 2. What are you giving back? Based on the (public) evidence that changed your mind, you've refused to give anything but a change of opinion. 3. You haven't told us anything to be...

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

    I at least hope they have a plan to get S/X production/deliveries up to the 25,000+ level. Personally not confident a minor change here or there will bring in 8,000 new orders per quarter. Obviously I haven’t been reading as much as I should from TMC as several people apparently have been...
