    Where is the choice that says 'because of all of the above, I had no choice but to invest'???

    My thinking was that if I gave an "All of the above" option, fewer people would make a choice.

    But for me, it was the overwhelming 'all of the above and more' that made it impossible NOT to invest.

    I think the only reason to invest is to make money, by definition. The first 3 choices are why it's a good idea to invest in TM, but not the reason to invest.

    Agreed. Data point: I never directly bought a stock in my life until I bought TSLA back in January, I only invested in mutual funds. It was the amazing potential and belief in what TSLA was doing that gave me the idea that I should buy stock in the company. My idea was if the company did well I'd be able to afford to get one of their cars in 4 or 5 years. 6 months later...

    I hate it when the "poll results" don't agree with what I believe. :)
