noithing Elon does will succeed, end of story. Certainly not by Tesla doing it. All he does is make big announcements to gain a gorrillian shares for things Tesla will never do

he think we are living in a computer. if you don't think the stakes are real, you are going to do some really dumb things. which explains spacex, tesla, and solarcity.

Tesla is promising though.

His companies are fucking amazing.

Having said that, Musk scares me.

His mouth is too big and he almost invites enemies. He needs to stfu and get shit done, like Bezos.

Tesla is grossly overpriced, the company is up to the neck in debt, hasn't made a profit ever and is certainly not going to make a profit in the next 5 years no matter what Musk says. The stock survives on pure speculation and "Irrational Exuberance".

Elon has big ideas but he's all over the place trying to live up to his image and he's going to end up crashing. I see Tesla being bought out in 10 years or so, while SpaceX will be perhaps his only surviving company. Solar City is a bad idea.

That being said I am buying Tesla (in my uni simulator) because it will rally in the next few days especially if the deal doesn't go through.

Actually it didn't. He had a 32 million dollar revenue stream. A revenue stream is not profit. It just proves that there is some money in there. He has 3+ billion in debt. 32 million is nothing.

waaah his company is now out of debt but I still don't like his attitude waaah
