Elon Musk… I find hard not to sympathize with him. This man is a great visionary of our modern times.
But you have to step into all the financial mechanism Tesla has behind its high tech cars. And there, unfortunately it is not all high tech and shiny…
I could say Tasla has one of the most fragile and chaotic development strategy. Their debt is huge, stocks sky rocket unrealistically (see P/E), and Tesla keep spending money on diversity. It is like a professional swimmer will try to gain Olympic medals on swimming, diving and water polo… It is achievable but with what probability?
As you already know, Tesla acquired Solar City and other renowned electricity related companies. All that with 500.000 car preorders pushed to 2018 due to lack of production capacity.
Dear Elon Musk, I don’t own a Tesla car and I don’t intend to have one in the near future because I rather preferred to invest in Tesla stock (TSLA). Me and other thousands of investors still trust your judgement, but we also know how a solid business works. Please do not push us, otherwise we’ll send the Tesla stock price to the bottom of the grid!
