This seems like pretty close to a reasonable valuation for Tesla. Doesn't make sense to buy without a margin of safety but the execution here has been exceptional. Not without hiccups, certainly, but unbelievable over the long term. The proliferation… More

While it has achieved CRITICAL MASS, it is still NOT PROFITABLE, so one must conclude this company is NOT ECONOMICALLY VIABLE.

Many call Tesla the future of transportation. I tend to agree. Internal Combustion Engine cars (ICE) are inefficient and dirty only converting 20% of the energy stored in petroleum into kinetic motion. Nearly 80% of energy is wasted in heat and noise. Electric vehicles are nearly 90% efficient. ICE cars have over 2000 moving parts. Electric cars have less than 200, with no oil that needs to be changed regularly and no gearbox. Maintenance could eventually be reduced to tires and brake pads at around 30 000 miles.

Tesla is far ahead of the competitors with regards to the battery and drive train efficiency, with their 2012 Model S still holding the longest range at over 350 miles per charge.

Their self-driving software with Autopilot is the market leader with real-world driving miles reaching 10 billion miles as of mid-2019. This data is invaluable and a real competitive advantage against the competition.

My one area of concern is regards to manufacturing and profit margins. Tesla is scaling up fast with Gigafacory 3 in China hopefully producing cars in volume early in 2020. But margins are the model 3 have been tight, which has made it hard for Tesla to be consistently profitable.

2020 will be a key year to see if they can finally be a big player in the car business and produce over 1/2 a million and beyond electric cars at a profit. For the sake of the planet I am hoping they can!

I personally own this stock, and I'm wondering why it is only a 3-star stock in CAPS. Expansion at the NUMMI plant, anyone? Wait for 2012.
