+ Watch TSLA
on My Watchlist
stock price has far overshot both intrinsic value and growth potential for this company. Stock price will have to contract from recent high.
This stock will never go down ever again!!!
Market Cap is overvalued....... but that's what I thought when the stock price was in the 40's
Don't manufacture enough to justify buying the stock at an inflated price
Tesla2013 sales: $1.7 billionloss: $170 millionmarket cap: $31 billion Ford2013 sales: $147 billionprofit: $7.2 billionmarket cap $60 billionConclusion: A $31 billion market cap for TESLA is a fantasy!
Tesla will benefit as the leader in the disruptive introduction of the electric vehicle. They also may help drive adoption of carbon reducing technologies through their battery operations, which could be a business of it's own.
Love the company but the stock is trading at cray cray valuation. P/E at 1200 and trading at yr 2020 estimates, I find it hard to initiate a bid at these levels. With an enterprise value half of GM and Ford, but with significantly less output, infrastructure, revenue and earnings; I expect that price depreciation will follow for the coming year. Maybe once valuation has settled at a more reasonable price then I will consider bidding for this stock. But for now it is gone too far too fast in its exuberance.
Over hyped, overpriced, over loved. I may be early but I know I'm right.
Great product, great company, but today's evaluation is based on what it might be 15-20 years from now. There are many things that could derail the company before that time frame. Passenger car sales is a highly competitive market.
It has finally occurred to Monkey that maybe one of the reasons God gave you opposable thumbs but no tails is to ensure that you'd have no option besides hand-wringing, regardless if times are bad––"the Fool recommended this stock three weeks ago and now I'm down 18%! Lies! Cold War! The Fool is messing with our precious bodily fluids!"––or just so-so––"Why hasn't this stock done anything!? I want it to do something!? Anything?! Even if it started hula-hooping in place would be better than its current dust-gathering proclivity"––or even when the news is great––"Telsa is doing extremely well; the company is looking to expand into even more markets at greater efficiency and increased operating margins, which means I need to sell as fast as possible, doesn't it? I gotta do something!" And all this because all y'all don't have a tail with which to go for a nice gentle swing through the jungle on a sunny day.Monkey's attitude, you ask? Well, since I live in trees, things like trees are important to me. And since I breathe air, that is too. Also, I have many polar bear friends, and they appreciate having a home on their ice fields, as opposed to say, not having a home. Also, I don't like it when it keeps getting hotter and hotter, prolly cuz I'm slightly hairier than some of you pasty baldies. Monkey had someone read him this book once, titled Eaarth, written by one of our foremost climate change scientists Bill McKibben, and the point of the book's title (and contents) is that the Earth we had known for thousands of years is already gone. As in, it's not going to go to hell in a handbasket 'soon' unless we're careful; rather, it's already gone past the threshold of life-and-death seriousness and unless we begin to dramatically focus on the problems associated with climate change, all the stocks you're buying for your children and your family won't be worth very much when nobody is even around to play valuation games because they're too busy floating on rafts. So maybe try to imagine the headlines: stocks drop 97% be because, um, planet Eaarth is now a bit too uncomfortable and there isn't an air conditioner powerful enough to cool down Wall Street so that the young stock brokers can't exactly concentrate straight on placing any trades, so we hope you have a lot of spare Ramen in your Worst Case Scenario closets. Also, the Mets lost a nail-biter, 2-1 to the Dodgers last night." So Tesla has had an amazing run, stock-wise. But Monkey has thought and continues to think deeply about what special select companies he wants to keep in his portfolio for the long term––the genuine long-term, folks, and that is a way separate question from stock price itself which does not affect the company. Yes, money and value is important, but long-term, Monkey thinks we need a planet on which to live for money to even have any meaning. And what single company seems to be doing more––visibly, unabashedly, exponentially, brilliantly more––than Telsa? You humanoids are in such a deep state of denial about the magnitude and gravity of our planet's well-being that out of so much fear you won't allow yourself to think big-picture. And so you worry about stock price. But Monkey needs his trees to still be there, and that's why he's not selling a single share.
Can't beat them, might as well join them .
31.0 Billion market cap, yea OK lol i laugh at those who have paid in the 250's for this stock. This stock almost shows the market is one big controlled joke.
hard to do in real life. But this is a CRAZY valuation. Went & checked it out in the mall, and it is a way overpriced car. A handful of people can afford this type of luxury.
I like Elon Musk, I like Tesla, and I like what it stands for, but this is NOT worth half as much as Ford/GM, it just isn't.
Although Tesla will have success in building a joint battery factory and selling great cars to a increasingly interested public, even the rosiest outlook doesn't justify a price over $200 / share this year. The fundamentals are pointing to a large downside risk; the increase of late is purely momentum players.
Valuation.. Could probably run for a few more months, but this is getting crazy
Priced beyond perfection. Someday Musk will leave for a more interesting venture.
After today's huge price jump, I looked at Tesla's market cap: $31B. More than half the market cap of Ford! I do a lot of driving; I've seen a grand total of ONE Tesla vehicle on the road here in central California. Maybe Tesla will deserve this valuation in twenty years, but not today. It's a great car, and a great company, but you are nuts if you think you will make money buying the stock at this price. It would take a number of miracles. The biggest problem is that there are dozens of car companies bigger than Tesla, and none of them is going to sit there and just watch someone else take over the market. Tesla will have to compete with many other brands. It would have to remain number one in this fiercely competitive industry for a very long time just to make ANY money at today's stock price. I would not make that bet. At $25, it would be worth the gamble, as you might make ten times your money in twenty years. Still lousy odds, really, but acceptable. But if you pay $250 now, you are counting on an enormous amount of luck to maybe get $250 back in twenty years. Take a huge risk to break even after decades? No thank you.
