    I'm long on TSLA and $150 sounds great! This speculation is for mid-2015, does it have much chance of going much higher than that after 10 years? Or just really slow incremental gains?

    On a domsestic EV forum we have one investor who has claimed something like this since 2011. I think he also has direct knowledge of hedge funds that are playing TSLA, but then againhe claims he's making money no matter if it goes up or down...

    well yes, they all do; and it can be true; the problem is they make a lot less than a long if it goes up; and a lot less than a short if it goes down;
    anyway- it's a good theory and might have some merit- a fellow long on a different board (Nicu) points out correctly though, the magnitudes don't add up as option call open positions of 7million are no where near short interest of 32million;
    so it does make some sense in theory, but I'm not sure it's the major driver

    StephenM- looking at potential numbers; if Gen III and on really fire on all (no)cylinders, it could easily go into mulit-hundreds level in out years
