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

    Thought I'd note that NAF (Norwegian AAA) has redone their biyearly range test for EVs. They do this twice a year one for winter and one for summer. They drive all the cars in a long line on a set route of normal highway driving until the car stops. At the longer ranges they start a fairly...

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

    Yeah this is part of our northern transport route and seems to be of breach of the spirit of their contract with the state. If not actual breach. My guess is someone will tell them to figure it out or decide to go bankrupt. They are a state funded ferry service not accepting cars currently...

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

    This is further tightening of some pretty hefty tolls right now to take a diesel car into Antwerp isn’t it or so my family says? So this is continuation of current policy not a large change as such, is what I’m trying to say.

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

    It's the weekend and I thought I'd post some musings from EV nirvana - Norway. I might start to say that my impression is that 3rd party charger networks in Norway does work. There are usually too few stalls and they can get finicky to start, but they do seem miles better than EA in the US. So...

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    A short update from an options newbie. I've sold a lot of CCs the last year. My special tax circumstance means I really don't want my shares to be called away, but as long as I roll or cover the call before it gets too close I'm golden. And since I have no margin, falling share price just means...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    I can add that the Norwegian Foreign Minister has said that this missile launch is a serious incident, but she is waiting for more information. Similarily Swedish military press secretary says they are prepared for any eventuality. So there's no doubt in my mind this might quickly escalate into...

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

    Just to help me understand, when the effective date on the split is 25th of August, should I have 3x as many shares on the morning of 25th or 26th of August. As in is it into 25th of out of 25th? The question could be rephrased to when are the shares officially delayed at my broker?

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    My understanding is that A10 requires you to first establish Air Supremacy otherwise they'll get shot down in no time. And blunt Russia's AA guns is possible for Ukraine, Air Supremacy not very likely.

    Tesla BEV Competition Developments

    I don't trust Edmunds when it comes to Tesla tests... NAF on the other hand, the Norwegian AAA does very well respected range tests. Take a look here: https://www.motor.no/aktuelt/motors-rekkeviddetest-av-elbiler-sommeren-2022/225305 it shows that yes the BMW M50 does 4,85% better than their...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    Norwegian media says at least the Norwegian ambassador has been sitting for 6 years and normal rotation is 4 years. This has been known for Norway for some time. That might be diplomats being diplomatic or might be the truth at least for Norway.

    Ukranian army runs out of bullets? Seriously the wierd thing is somehow someone further up the chain of command thinks this will help? After all as rational beings if this actually hinders Russian progress why do it?

    Tesla BEV Competition Developments

    If anyone thinks Europe is going to reduce EV targets for the European market with the Russia-Ukraine issue needs to get their head checked. With Tesla showing it is possible to build profitable EVs in Europe, with a general green push and a specific anti-Russian anti-ICE push the targets will...

    IBKR SWIFT payment to me delayed several days - anything I can do?

    I assume that is known, but it seems what transfer options you have available from IBKR is based on the currency you are transfering. I tried to setup withdrawels in $ but my bankinformation was never accepted to the biggest bank in Norway. Exchanging to Euros I can du a SEPA transfer and those...

    Just for some reference Motor the magazine in question is NAFs (our equivalent to AAA) magazine. They are fairly neutral and consumer based and have a big impact in the local market. With similar magazines in Sweden and Finland they also do winter and summer tire comparison reviews as well. I...

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

    I thought due to all this discusssion of stop signs I'd give us all a break with Norwegian sales data. Unfortunately there seems to be no sales of Tesla this January, which of course is not unusual. But the crazy thing this month is there were sold 175 gasoline cars of all types out of a total...

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

    I thought I'd update about the EV vanguard also known as Norway/Oslo. As Christine said unfortunately Model Y didn't get a rush of deliveries the last part of december. So it ended the year at 4th place in all models behind Model 3, RAV4-Hybrid and ID.4 Though just a few hundred cars from MY to...

    Since this was his drive, probably the classical car within range of keys. If the car keys are dumped in a bowl right inside the door to the house and not covered with Al-foil then the range of the keys likely leeds to the car staying unlocked. Not specific to Tesla but the same for all cars...

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    Thanks for the tips for me last option question. I did get everything setup and bought a "risky" 1320 strike call and 4 safer 1350 calls. I feel fairly safe as ATH is 1240 after all, but as you say if somehow the stock falls tomorrow morning and doesn't gap up $50-100 I think closing my calls...

    There you go, I learn something every day. Yeah trying not to trigger big tax bills is usually a good idea.

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    Yeah that was kind of the idea but I need to understand what the Wheel actually IS before I can use it. I know what a wheel is but I'm guessing it's not the round thing I have 4 of on my Tesla? And Norwegian tax law is usually pretty straightforward, but I need to be sure I'm not doing...

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    Neither do I, so I need to educate myself both on puts and their tax consequences before I start making big tax plunders. But it seems lots of people prefer selling puts instead of covered calls.

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    My stretch goal is to get maybe $15 000 out of this per year so $500 - $1500/week seems to be decent pay for a realtime course in options :) Thanks for letting me know I've got a decent idea. And yeah I figure I might climb down to 10% or maybe even 5% above as I get more comfortable and a...

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    I might be going to puts eventually, but I barely understand options right now even though I'm a fairly fast learner, so I'll get started with covered calls and get some experience and then branch out :)

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    I don't believe I have that kind of margin available and I definately don't have that kind of cash. Hence why I'm starting my option experience in something that seems to be very conservative. A secondary benefit of my original idea was that I get actual experience with options while the stakes...

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    I hope the options experts here can sanity check my ideas and assumptions. I've got quite a lot of Tesla shares, enough that Norways 1% wealth tax is eating hard into my spending money from my regular job and regular income. At the same time Norwegian tax laws will tax any earnings with about...

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

    I've been keeping an eye on Tesla sales in Norway, not the least because it's very easy to follow every day through the site Elbilstatistikk everyone knows. Model 3 is of course going to be the best selling car model in 2021 in Norway currently sitting at 11434 cars , above the nr 2 slot which...

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

    I'm enjoying the stats at Registreringer av nye elbiler i Norge as well as everyone. I started looking a few days into the surge of new Model Y arriving in Norway. At that point Model Y was the 23rd best-selling EV in all of 2021 (from starting about the middle of August). And excepting the RAV4...

    Anyone know if the European Model Y and the Chinese Model Y are exactly the same? The charge port differs doesn't it? Anything else? Just to illustrate that the choice to go with European or Chinese productionis decided some time (how long is some - a week/month/quarter ?) before production...

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

    I'm not so sure. It seems the car listed costs 463 000NOK while the listed LR M3 costs 449 000 which I assume is the Freemont one? Christine I assume you did notice the one you listed was slightly used so had a cheaper price because of that? I'm just confused on the pricing here.

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

    Yeah I would say Niedermeyer was right. Musk didn't know all it took to get a full size car manufacturer operational. A wisecrack might even be - that's why he tried. Though looking at Musk taking over running Tesla WHILE he was getting his space company up and running might tell you a thing or...

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

    It seems Norway likely will remove part of their EV incentives soon. Currently we have a center right goverment but there is an election this september. The center-left coalition has a 95% chance of winning says the pollsters now, so it's pretty likely they win. Exactly which party in that...

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

    You are correct that we do have a lot of tolls, though they generally pay for specific road project and are removed when it's paid down. But I think this is a major cultural difference between the US and Europe/Norway. The US are hyper focused on taxes, while Europeans are not. I say that...

    I actually think the Cybertruck is going to sell well in Truck country. BUT not at first. As people say when they show off a Model 3 to strangers, people are blown away on how good and how cheap it is. For not very car interested people electric cars are fast and very expensive and can't be...

    I suppose I should bite. My cheapest (and second) purchase was at $4.40 post split in 03.15.11. Keep in mind for me there is a forex element as well, the dollar then was crazy weak at 5.6 NOK per $. My most expensive one was at $641 done at 12.23.20 though the dollar was a lot stronger then at...

    Seriously this is not a big problem. Look to Norway. ALL new housing has EV charging as an option or as built in. As long as you have dedicated parking in a communal garage (and seriously living with a car without parking at home is really bad) and you pay the cost you can literally force the...

    The interesting question I think is: Is GJ better than the #7333 guy, and how much better is he? Or rather how bad is the #7333 guy?

    The Fully Charged "review" (more a walk-through with pictures/video) highlighted the thin seats and showed pictures. So it seems pretty much a given they are space-effective. If they are comfortable as well is open for debate, half the Tesla seats even are not compatible with my back.

    All discussion of Lucid Motors

    I never said Lucid was a fraud. But you can get the last laugh when all Lucid’s vehicles outsell the Taycan in Norway. My guess a hard never as long as Porsche sells it here.

    All discussion of Lucid Motors

    Yeah the writing wasn’t as clear. I know Lucid is not a fraud, but as a completely unknown brand in Norway and probably Europe they got to appear more trustworthy than this. At least if they want a serious amount of sales outside US. It seems the UAE page is the same as the Norway page too.

    No you can't, or you shouldn't. I tried choosing Norway. And it is true I can "order" from Norway paying about $1000 to reserve a car. Though what I don't get is price or any kind of hint as to when it arrives. I read fluently English, but not even bothering to translate the order page to...

    I can see the case of you don't have to outrun the Bear you just have to outrun Bob over there and you will be fine. And yes if a car product gets too popular it will reach a local maximum where people wants something else. But at the same time the legacy OEM has so much baggage to drag with...

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

    Isn't that the whole point of being an analyst. If Tesla today knew exactly how many cars they would sell for 2021 then it wouldn't be a target but a statement of facts. Anything they say now is going to be guidance or a target. By definition it is uncertain, and by definition any analysts model...

    I can add that the Norwegian version of AAA, NAF, also has decent range tests. Typically done the same way that carwow does them. They also got winter and summer tests for most of the cars. I'm not sure if it's paywalled but try this link: Her er de største rekkevidde-vinnerne Scroll down to...

    There's actally 3 similar ones. And yes the Audi e-tron was the best-selling car last year, not best-selling EV but car, about 9k out of a total of around 150k.

    From a purely selfish standpoint with Norways eyes the good news is they have sold like 3 of the MIC SR+ in Norway. So that will probably not turn into a major problem. The MG ZE EV has had some stories that seems similar to what people have experienced with the SR+ with the LFP batteries...

    I can add that the Norwegian Prime Minister has answered the "attack" in the ads: https://twitter.com/erna_solberg/status/1356666920217567232?s=20 Yes I kind of like that... both that she answers and that EVs get extra exposure
