I think that Tesla's valuation is wayyy too high and they aren't making money. Usually, margins in the automotive industry are thin and very competitive. I think Teslas are really cool, but they aren't a Jeep, or an F-150. They don't have an offering that appeals to a large demographic they could serve. They're too expensive for your average soccer mom. The whole 200-ish miles one a single charge is troublesome for many.

Basically, in a market that should seek mass appeal, they have segmented there market and aren't as efficient as some competitors.

The electric car may well be the future, and when/if it is, there will be many major new competitors. Plus, don't count out the old dinosaurs from making their presence felt in the electric market and entering with years of valuable experience in similar activities.

Elon Musk. With a CEO like Musk, who owns over 1/5 of the shares, it's obvious this company is one he is heavily invested in. Not to mention the fact that we live in a time where green energy and fuel efficient/electric cars are becoming an industry standard. TSLA has already started making progress with electric cars, well beyond the competition. That's not to say we won't ever see any rivals amongst the likes of Honda, Toyota, BMW, Ford, etc. but should the electric car boom, those companies will be behind the power curve that Tesla has created.

Introduction of Model 3... Low cost, High quality batteries for consumer and commercial use... Giga Factory, game changer? Possibly more significant than Model 3?...

Great technology, great execution. Market leader. Oil's got to run out some time, not to mention the whole global warming thing.

It's bleeding cash and losing money.

This new order will require the issue of equity diluting shareholders.

I love Tesla. I think it will be a successful company in time, but the numbers just don't make sense to get into it right now. Considering that Tesla's market cap is roughly 60% of Ford's, simply too much growth is built in. A couple of quick numbers...Ford (149B in sales, 2.6M cars sold in 2015); Tesla (4B in sales, 50k cars sold in 2015).

I believe Tesla will have great success and be profitable, but investors are paying prices as though it has already happened. There are better stocks out there.

Tesla looks to be a good long term play. With promising new battery technology coming out soon to replace lithium batteries the EV car industry will gain lots of traction when range will be doubled. Expect a 500-600 mile range when SSB's hit the EV car world.

I think at some point down the line Tesla could offer an affordable micro EV car that could be a best seller and really springboard this company.

Tesla's six week dump during the market correction from $240 to $141 still left it a bit "frothy" in my opinion, and it appeared the market generally agreed that it had gotten too lofty...but here it is, right back up again in approximately the same amount of time.

Yes, the Electric Cars may have some juice, but as they become more common, the prestige will wear off.
Putting Tesla at 60% or more market cap of established brands such as Ford and GM is just out of WHACK.

The Cash Burn is a killer, and the P/B of 28, even not allowing for the rapid encroachment of other players into the market is rather astounding...yes, growth stocks are rewarded with higher multiples, but not above the possible market penetration.

Target, will reality (or some minor semblance come back or will I be stuck with this one for a long period of time??

Target 20-30 points, with a probably early bank.

I think the recent price dip was a great buying opportunity. This doesn't reflect the price I bought at, but I do think TSLA has a large chance of beating the market in the long haul.

Overbought. Downward revisions in consensus analyst earnings and price targets show downward trend should resume soon.
