    Competition is good for everyone including Tesla. It does not get more mainstream then GM, Hyundai, Nissan, Jag and Porsche. The fact that the newer EVs are not ugly means that they actually want people to want them. This mainstreaming will only help the leader, which is Tesla. Also, every car these competitors sells is one less icev that they sell which makes them far less profitable short term, though I think they are making the right long term decision. Tesla can't do it on their own, they need and planned on competitors being dragged kicking and screaming into EVs. This is what happens when their flagship cars drop in market share. It forces their hands.

    Formidable threat based on what? That it seats up to 7? That you can load it up with more Ikea than you can a minivan? That it'll have OTA updates that make the car better as it gets older? Or just that it's a sportier looking car?

    Branderiz was an opportunist. He came to SolarCity from SunPower on 10/24/16 after SCTY burnt through four CFO's in five years (Bob Kelly, Brad Buss, Tanguy Serra, and Radford Small)

    Brandriz' ISOs, non-qualified options, and RSUs did not begin to vest for a year. The RSUs had a zero basis, and the ISOs and non-qualified strikes were $181.45. Once those vested, he sold with both fists. Shares sold from his Form 4s:

    9/5/17 99 Shares
    10/24/17 1,736 Share
    11/10/17 1,736 Shares
    11/27/17 1,736 Shares
    12/05/17 4,808 Shares
    1/24/18 1,601 Shares
    2/26/18 401 Shares
    3/8/18 1,201 Shares

    Those grants do not expire until 2026.

    The Mission E suicide doors will likely badly injure passengers during a T-bone accident. Lots of bears will soon have suicidal thoughts once Tesla hits 5,000 M3 per week.... perhaps Porsche is targeting this crowd of buyers?

    By the time the mission E hits production, Tesla willl be on track to produce 400-500k units per year, with Porsche targeting 20k, without a supercharger network, and no GF to compete. The fact that the Mission E has zero autonomous capability will also be a huge disappointment to many. For those who are big on safety, those suicide doors is a big no-no.

    Holy cow! That’s about $4.5 million!

    I don’t know how many were RSU and how many were ISO, but that’s— at minimum— $2 million above and beyond salary for less than a year & a half of work.

    Hopefully today’s job report will be taken well, otherwise I believe we may dip below $320 again.

    Doubt it. Does anyone here really care about the CAO leaving for personal reasons?

    Yea, which is why we're down 2% premarket, after having underperformed in every period imaginable for the last nine months, even though one of the highest growth periods in the company's history is right around the corner.

    Let them have this battle; we'll win the war.

    Exactly. Especially around a time when there’s literally no good news. You should see how active shorts were on Twitter after hearing this news. But that was an excellent job report though. We are saved. Let’s see if everyone can brush past this and take SP to close above green today.

    "we're saved?!" o_O From what? From a bunch of measly bears? I don't think you realize the three-year period of hyper-growth Tesla is about to enter with Model 3, then Semi, then Tesla Energy, then Model Y. Did anyone even know who the CAO was before last night?

    I meant for today. I have no doubt in Tesla for the long term whatsoever needless to say. LOL but you are absolutely right. No one knew who he was.

    Well, I actually don't like the jobs report.

    Just trying to have one of my rental properties painted, quotes were almost double what I normally pay. Labor is getting hard to find. The days of inflation are returning! Mark my words!

    I remember 18% interest rates on home mortgages. Those days will return !

    I for one will be BFTD today. Not an advice. Though I will have a very quick trigger. If things are not flowing, ill be all out and waiting again. Hoping this thing will find its local bottom and have a nice face ripper into the close. its been a long time. I think Max Pain was 340, though it changes every day. Again, not an advice.
