Surfboard sales up q/q.

+10% in AH for TSLA, maybe because Musk didn’t say anything crazy.


#594

Nice prediction


#595

Wow I was off by two days! Or spot on since it was “about” three months.

YoY is only up 16% eps. Looks like Apple’s a little more expensive now since that was “same price at 30% growth”

Fun to watch TSLA today… what a circus. Just halted.

I wonder if the SEC lawyers will call him to task on this one. I don’t think the CEO gets a free pass about “joking” about taking the company private. If he’s serious, I look forward to his disclosure on the funding he says he’s secured. If he’s not, I look forward to the market manipulation charges.

He just tweeted again about it:

Shareholders could either to sell at 420 or hold shares & go private

TSLA stock halted. Probably won’t be able to trade again until he makes the appropriate PR or disclosures about that tweet/offer.

Edit: resuming at 3:45 today.

TSLA coverage



#601

Here’s a good one from the BBC:


#602

TSLA took some profits around $355 on the shares I sold into the buyout madness, er enthusiasm. Still holding my (underwater) shorts from previously.


#603

I wish Elon would spend more effort making the company profitable and less on bizarre financing strategies.


#604

NYU finance prof crunches the numbers of TSLA and goes through various scenarios regarding their going private.

Sounds like it’s primarily the Saudi Wealth Fund backing this.


#606

Or maybe not. Who knows?


#607

Reality Show is a good description of the Tesla saga. I have some very smart folks around me all going gaga over it but I can’t find a scenario for their success long term.

… yup, who knows. I been wrong before


#608

Time for the board to start worrying about their director’s liability insurance and throw Musk under the bus. I’m hearing he’s going to “take some time off”.

This probably isn’t good news either.

This site is obviously in its death throws. What other site do you all post at?

Reddit, bogleheads
