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

    Haven´t seen this being discussed here, Tesla raised their Capex guidance by $0.5B to $1B per year for the next 2 years. That is most likely why they raised the ~$2B in stock recently. This may or may not be related to the recent rumors about a new Giga Factory planning, potentially in Texas.

    TSLA Market Action: 2018 Investor Roundtable

    Fast charging comes at the cost of reduced lifespan of batteries, at least with the current technology. So competition may be able to charge faster but will likely see much higher battery degradation. This may turnout to not be a problem for companies such as Nissan since their costumers are now...

    TSLA Market Action: 2018 Investor Roundtable

    If you were hoping to have a boring day with TSLA, this is not the day. TSLA has been up when NASDAQ was down these days. Today NASDAQ is up and TSLA down, with relatively low volume. What's more interesting is that it seems that TSLA does not move according to news anymore, there were some...

    It seems a little too early, since the configurator did not yet open in all European countries, and there are a lot of people that are waiting to order the P and Awd long range model.

    TSLA Market Action: 2018 Investor Roundtable

    This was the highest volume move since 29th November according to Yahoo Tsla charts. Considering the stock level I would say there was some short covering done this morning, possibly a margin call.

    Referral code model 3 in Europe

    I have read in facebook that Tesla is aware of this problem and will fix it in the future. Maybe there will be an option to add it later like there was for the Model 3 launch in the USA, where some people could also not use a referral code.

    The stock is still holding near 370 in the premarket +6-8 (1.8-2.1%), which is a little more than double the % gain from yesterday trading day +3.36 (+0.93%).

    There may or may not be something going on with the market, specially with shorts being forced to cover since some brokers seem to not have shares available to short. But if we look back one year, Tsla was trading at this prices in the anticipation of the Model 3 ramp. Today, the ramp is...

    RWD 1st Snow Driving Experience with All Season Tires

    I can't recommend winter rated tires enough for people driving through snow. They make a superb difference specially in the case you need to do an emergency breaking if for example someone gets stuck in front of you unexpectedly.

    An example of a Model 3 partially covered in Ice, there is little difficulty opening the doors. There is no visible ice formations behind the door handles. Jump to 4:39 for the relevant part. So that one blogger that decided to make a video and try to spread it as a wild problem is in my...

    TSLA Market Action: 2018 Investor Roundtable

    There are plenty of cases, in Twitter for example, of Model 3 owners in Canada that do not have any issues with door handles freezing nor windows getting stuck. But none of them washed the car and left it to dry in the cold so that ice would form behind the door handles either... So it may be a...

    Kimbal sold me, I'm not American but I will planting 2 instead of 1! I wished I could keep my posture while doing the same, but it was so hilarious I could not contain my laugh. Tesla board seems to be getting along well, which should be good for the stock.

    Should europeans wait for AP3?

    This applies not only for the Model 3 in Europe, but for every Tesla in any part of the world. If you want/need the car now, and you think the price for what Tesla is offering at the moment is fair/worth to you, buy it now! Otherwise you will always end up waiting for the next big thing, because...

    [CONFIRMED INCORRECT] Performance price raised again, now 69k base includes PUP still

    So will people now complain that the price changed, and send Tesla a 5000$ check so that they don't feel like they bought a car cheaper than they should have? :D

    So Yahoo has this new (at least to me only appeared today) graphic in the TSLA section. Can someone explain to me where the strong dividends rating comes from? Feels like I have been cheated all these years and someone is keeping all the dividends to itself! :eek:

    TSLA Market Action: 2018 Investor Roundtable

    That may be true until they unveil/start producing Model Y. Then the cycle repeats. "Tesla won't be able to produce the Model Y". "Ok, but they can't make it at a profit". "Ok, they can make a profit but they can't ramp production". Replace with Model Y with the Semi or pickup. This was true for...

    TSLA Market Action: 2018 Investor Roundtable

    Not all shorts are dumb, they are most probably doing it for the money, they won money by riding Tsla down and will make more by riding it up now. My impression is that they will ride whatever makes them money in the future, getting back to short Tsla if the FUD intensifies or staying long if...

    A big part of America wants Tesla to fail. I don't know if it's feasible or even practical, but in my opinion Elon should consider taking Tesla to a country where it would be supported and protected against endless manipulations that have been made trough the years. This way real investors could...

    NHTSA Rating results in for the RWD Model 3: 5 stars

    If they did record the rear crash test, they probably used the same machine as the side impact one. The metallic machine is very different from the impact of a car which has a plastic front. I have seen impacts at 40+mph where the car in front only got scratched while the car that impacted got...

    Why Tesla will be out of business in 10-20 years

    I have been hearing this story for years, what surprises me is that now Tesla is 10-20 years from being out of business instead of the usual 5 years away. Guess they were using Elon's timeline all along :rolleyes:

    Will prices drop soon?

    From Model S example, the prices will go up over time as well as the number of features included. For example Tesla Model S 40.

    Will prices drop soon?

    Tesla has only been producing the higher optioned versions of the Model 3, and selling only in North America. There are still many regions waiting for the Model 3 to launch, and there are also the non optioned (specially the non premium interior) and the standard pack versions to be produced, so...

    Portugal

    I believe you were already answered in the Portuguese Facebook Tesla Owners Club. In any case if anyone wants to know, the answer is that you have destination chargers available at shopping centers, the docks, and Ikea. Some people there may also be available to lend you their mobi-e card

    P3D VIDEO!!!

    I can't blame him. If I daily drove a Model S P100D I would probably not be that much excited about the Model 3 too. And if he daily drove the new Roadster he probably wouldn't be that much excited about his P100D anymore.

    I have no experience with the mobi.e card, but the NIF is the same as VAT number, which every European citizen should have, so you may try to use your VAT. If that does not work I can send you mine trough private message.

    Banning Shorts

    Then the title of this thread should be updated, and when FUDsters are banned they shouldn't be defended accusing the forum of being biased and against short sellers.

    Banning Shorts

    My impression is that the term is used more to denote long term investors in this forum, but that is still correct. In case he is referring to traders then neither being short or being long implies rooting for the company to fail at a surface level. However the attempts to spread misinformation...

    They clearly state in the last 7 days, so it does not matter if you count Monday to Monday, or Saturday to Saturday, 7 days are 1 week worth of production.
