    I wanted to get a feel for what this board thinks 2013 EPS will end up being. I am predicting $.75 - $1.9.

    Anyone care to share their projections?

    Not sure if I am batshit insane but at EPS $1.9 and $50 share price TSLA has


    This is a VERY conservative P/E. If TSLA trades at 100x P/E we don't need a short squeeze to push TSLA over $100. Is my model overly optimistic? What am I doing wrong or is the picture really this pretty?

    I'm guessing those numbers are not in "Millions of USD".

    might want to fix that - 1.90 eps , $50 share price is something around 26 p/e not 41. took a quick look at your income statement, i think your expenses are running about 60-80 million on the low side.

    Thanks. What's interesting to me is that even with expenses raised about $80 million there is a real case to be made that the stock's fundamental value is upwards of $100. This is what makes me skeptical of my own model. Can the market really wrong by such a large amount?
