Hi guys, New to the forum, but I've been an avid Tesla follower and stock owner for the last 3.5 years. I love this company and what they're doing and I find it incredibly fascinating being able to watch their progress on websites like Elektrek, InsideEVs, TeslaMondo, etc. A bit of background about myself - I'm a former Apple stockholder (bought in 2007 and sold in 2014 for a hefty profit). I used that money to pick up my first Tesla shares and I've been accumulating (slowly) ever since. The thing is- I've been doing this in all cash and without leverage. A friend recently told me that if I was so confident about TSLA and it's ability to deliver on its promises, and that the share price would rise, why not just buy in-the-money call options and leverage your capital. Can someone help me understand a bit more about this? Let's say, for example, I have 1000 shares paid for in cash. At roughly $300 per share, my total investment is 300,000. I'm expecting the stock to triple at some point in the next 3-5 years (that's just my personal expectation). So on a returns basis I'd get about 600k in profit from this point onwards. Can someone explain how in-the-money call options work? How could I increase my return using the same expectation (3x in 3-5yr), and what are the key risks I should be aware of in doing so? Thanks in advance for your input.
