Is this another Drama stock touted for year after year against his Nat/Gas hedge Westport who has cleaner fuel Davy’s news letter will be getting a bunch of money back guarantee’s. At least PENNY STOCK FORTUNES GOES BEHIND THE SCENE’S AND GET A SUPPLIER (HUN) . Good reporting Travis! But I would take Huntsman he knows China and chemicals and they have money in the bank and friends in a country that pays there bills, it is Communism but they know what the word budget means and are pretty good at buying Gold that the US is supposed to have in Fort Knox but Ben B won’t let them count it. GATA.ORG watch there video’s and see who there speakers are. What option do you buy there covered cars or covered calls, carbon fiber chassis by Lamborghini, 400.000$ 0 to 60 in 2 seconds or plug in the TSLA 2 years

Great analysis. I’ve had a close eye on Tesla since it IPO’ed, and while the stock has been volatile, somehow it has managed to follow an upward trend. Whenever there are doubts about the company, Musk comes out with a well timed press release or announcement that motivates investors to buy more.
Several sources claim that the ramp up into a car manufacturing process is never without setbacks though, and Musk may be making production volume claims that the company can’t keep. With so many $5000 reservations, the markup of a luxury product, and a glowing car of the year review from motor trend, I don’t think it matters. Tesla has a history of silencing the doubters and I think it will continue to do so.

I have been watching Tesla for a while now but haven’t bought the stock. I am starting to think betting against Elon Musk is a fool’s game.

Elon tweeted that Tesla will be cash flow positive for the fourth quarter 2012. That combined with other information have led some people that follow Tesla very closely to believe that production for the quarter will be 3000 cars. It looks like they’ll be able to hit 20,000 vehicles produced in 2014.

One of the things that is rarely mentioned is that the deposits clients pay for the cars are not segregated from Tesla’s other assets. Tesla’s clients are basically providing Tesla an interest free loan that they can use at their discretion.

The reviews of the new model X at the Detroit Auto-show have been very good so far.

I’ll look forward to listening to the fourth quarter earnings conference call to see how accurate some of the online speculation is.

I don’t like the battery cost aspect of buying an electric car. Here are the costs of battery replacement from Tesla .
“A Battery Replacement Option will be available for purchase soon. The option allows you to pre-purchase a new battery to be installed after eight years for a fixed price: $8,000 for 40 kWh batteries, $10,000 for 60 kWh batteries, and $12,000 for 85 kWh batteries.”
It seems to be you are really not saving anything on gas when buying electric car just replacing the cost of gasoline and oil changes with the cost of the batteries. This will limit buyers of electric cars to enthusiasts . The technology for electric car batteries just is not up to speed yet. I know I will not be buying one. The 55k and up price tag is too rich for my blood.
