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

    I think you overstate your case. I think that Americans who have accumulated funds in a tax-deferred account could trigger a 1-time tax event for more than $7,500 possibly by withdrawing as little as the amount needed to pay for the car itself. This makes the Tax Credit a DOUBLE-DEMAND Lever. :D...

    Lol, it's only 372 mi (599 km) from New York City to Montreal, Quebec. A Model Y LR will do that with just a long lunch stop at an L2 charger... I'd love to see his task for writing this story... Luddites. :P

    Yup. Except for the 18650s in Models S/X. And the LFP packs in the Model 3 Std Rge... and perhaps for 3LR also, given that the website was recently updated to show just $3,750 IRA tax credit for that LR Model going forward. ;) EDIT: Apparently the IRA credit is in flux: (but is still most...

    This might be accurate in a Market which does not allow Market Makers to create arbitarily large numbers of naked short shares. Instead, the supply of TSLA available to sell on NASDAQ is inexhaustible. There can be no rational price discover in such a market; only emotions driven by market...

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

    Fun Fact: in 2022, TSLA traded 21.8 billion shares. Elon sold, what, 40 Million shares? (not ez to google). That'd be about 0.183 percent of TSLA shares sold by Elon over 12 months. So [INSERT WIZARD OF OZ MEME]... :P Meanwhile, 104.0M shares traded today by halftime: Cheers!

    Do you track your CAGR? I've been invested in TSLA just over 5 years now, and as of yesterday my CAGR was 59.7%. This exceeds my expectations from back when I made my initial investment, which was that TSLA would pace the growth of Tesla, which famously targets 50% growth over the long term. I...

    Exactly! You'd need to use 497/531 = 93.6% of the old NCA (Nickel) LR battery capacity to equal the new LPF (Iron) LR battery. Do that regularly, it's gonna leave a mark... ;)

    Umm, you might want to employ another idiom of speech, using this one is kind of an "own goal": "Sticks and Stones..." is a children's rhyme used in defense against name-calling and verbal bullying. Hence, "...words will never hurt me." could imply that LLMs are inherently less dangerous than...

    IRA: Sell your Made-in-USA bty/cars in Canada, receive no production credit. Sell Made-in-USA in the USA, get production credits for the batteries and the Consumer gets ↓ sticker $$. BTW, Troy, Michigan is the home of GM Headsquatters. Jus' sayin'...

    Okay (since you like math), move that $23.6B in new capital to TSLA's order book over 10 minutes, and see how it affects the clearing price.

    Marching to meet the Upper-BB for the Closing Cross: That's still a "win", so long as we can break the connection to the 200-day SMA.

    Could well be. Given that Elon used the plural team(s) I'd put less weight on the 1st 2 choices, given that there are likely just one such team each for all of China. Something like "Service and Delivery Specialists" might fit, too. Lol, damn 3LA's... Cheers!

    Pardon, anybody know what the 3-letter-acronym "SDS" means in regards to Tesla China? As in "Tesla China SDS teams"? @elonmusk "Congratulations to Giga Shanghai & Tesla China SDS teams for their excellent work overcoming many obstacles over many years!!" /Twitter (1 hr ago) TIA.

    "Unboxing" primarily means changing from a traditional linear assembly line to a "star" topology (one where all the components are assembled into modules separately, then come together just once as the final act). Fremont's paint shop will not be well suited to "unboxing", it's setup for the...

    I think I found your $10 million in TSLA shares... Oh, WAIT! Yeah, that's 22.76M SHARES traded during the 4:00 o'clock minute. I haven't seen that level of volume at the Closing Cross (>15% of the total Daily volum) except on a day like the S&P 500 Inclusion date (Fri, Dec 18, 2020). Cheers...

    Good point. I remind the Jury of this Marketwatch article published when TSLA ↑ $300: (just before the Q4 slump) Tesla spent 864 days as Wall Street's biggest short bet. Now it's Apple. | (Sep 15, 2022)...

    I hear ya. WallE has priced in just 6M units/yr autoproduction by 2030, we'll hit 20M (that's 3x right there). Tesla Energy will be about the same size as Tesla Auto, but is currently less than 10% (so that's another 5x vs today's SP). Then, per Elon, Tesla Bot will be larger than the rest of...

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

    Yeah, that's deliberately misleading. TLSA was $202.69 intraday on Apr 03, 2023 (and over $200 many other times since September) As you can see in the 200-day chart above (↑), the TSLA low in the entire month of Sept 2022 was $260 (shortzes pounced on TSLA before AI Day 2 on Sep 30, 2022 to...

    IIRC, Tesla vehicles ASP was ~$47K in Q1. That's unlikely to increase to $50K given the current FED interest rates policy. Further, Tesla is in the process of releasing more Std Range versions of the Model Y, and "Project Highland" (Q3?) will almost certainly boost sales by reducing prices while...

    Exactly. All the metadata would need to contain is an exemption for the specific 'freakout' condition per location that Tesla gets as feedback from the fleet. Over time, this results in fewer freakouts, and a better user experience. Cheers!

    Some of the examples cited in that twitter thread are the result of Tesla updating the map/routing metadata on their servers. This results in a better experience because of advance information on traffic controls, lane layout, and especially any changes from existing (static) map data. This is...
