    Congratulations to those who jumped in last week, this thing's going insane. Those who are long stock, I definitely recommend buying protective put as Tesla's been notorious for having massive pullbacks. $721 now... wow!

    So my #1 rule is NEVER to buy when a stock is up. Am I crazy to think that I am begging for Tesla to drop drastically so I can buy more???

    Panasonic reported a profit in Q4, largely thanks to it's giga Nevada operations.

    Puts in Tesla with the stock at $738, something I usually never do but I can't resist with it up at this level.

    Tesla going to be a lot higher than 1200 in my opinion. May take a year or two but it has a Jobsesque appeal written all over it. But I agree that before that happens it will inevitably fall at a point or two

    Tesla now over $760.

    I shouldn't have pulled a third mortgage on my house to short Tesla.

    Passed $770.

    That is 420% in 3.3 years for the original tranche.

    I will share an investors perspective on owning Tesla.

    I feel I have a reasonable handle on Tesla from the perspective of technology, strategy, and (to a somewhat lesser extent) business.

    I don't have much of a clue what the stock price is going to do today, tomorrow, or the day after.

    My entire strategy is to find a company that I believe in, make sure there is value in buying it, and then holding for ten years.

    The couple of short term moves I've made on Tesla have been luck and opportunity to move some capital into a more fundamental portion of our portfolio. Tesla is not a primary holding for us.

    The way it's turned out, I left a lot of money on the table by not sticking to the long term plan. I don't regret those moves but they were far, far less profitable than holding.

    I have returned to the long term Tesla plan with our Tesla position. I will focus on technology, manufacturing, business, etc. Most of all, I will just hold.

    The stock trades up to $800 tomorrow I'll buy a couple of two-week options put contracts. I'll sell out once I get 100% profit.

    TSLA passed $810 overnight.

    Currently at $806.

    This seems like an epic short opportunity but with Tesla, it's tough to know what a stable price will be.

    We are going to find out how debt conversion will impact the stock price.

    Chinese market pullbacks and giga Shanghai shutdown seem to have left Tesla entirely unaffected. That is a head scratcher.

    Meanwhile, the Chinese stock market has stabilized.

    Tesla is still at $885, 15 minutes before the start of trading.

    I share your view there is probably an epic short in here, somewhere. I have no idea what is going on. I've considered the possibility an ai investor has run the price up.

    Whatever happens, remember: No one ever lost money betting against Tesla.

    :D

    Recent pictures confirm the model Y has a cast frame. As I understand it, this will knock 20% out of the GA process.

    Keep in mind, general assembly is not the entire build. GA is where sub-assemblies are out together to complete the car.

    Still, this explains why the new GA5 at Fremont is so short.

    It's clear, the strategy is to increase the complexity of sub-assemblies to improve the efficiency of GA lines. In particular, S/X general assembly has a ton of room for optimization. I would expect a whole new platform for these two vehicles in the next two years. They don't need the platform for S/X production but they need the factory space for 3/Y production.

    As Tesla tightens their production processes, they are making the barrier of entry into bev production higher. At this point, I wouldn't want to own Toyota stock and I'm extremely skeptical about Ford. I would bet on BMW not making it in 10 years.

    GM is on the right path. I expect Tesla and gm will be the major american auto manufacturers in 2030.

    I'm over 50. I am likely the most boring person you would ever meet.

    ... And I just followed "Negrostockdamus" on StockTwits because I respect his insight into Tesla.

    What the..... :D
