    A well-written article saying the billions in investments by Tesla Motors is justified:

    Why Tesla Motors Is Worth Every Penny of Its Net Losses -- The Motley Fool

    I'd say it does a good job putting TM's net losses thus far into perspective, comparing them to others in the industry, and beyond.

    "... Tesla has indeed burned through quite a bit of cash in the 13 years since it was founded.

    But it's worth it."

    Great article indeed. I find this article in view of the SCTY merger news very interesting. Sure, TSLA will have to invest more money and incur short-term losses to make the merger work, but longer-term the reward will be great. Billions today in return for a trillion (market cap) tomorrow.

    Unfortunately, the writer of these balanced and well-researched articles will probably no longer write for the Motley Fool.

    But I'm glad he already found a new job so quickly:

    Maybe some of you heard of his employer. Tesla Motors.
