I'm a small retail TESLA investor and a die hard ole fart "MuskRat"...!!!
It's not difficult to see, what appears to be a strong negative downplay bias on "the street". Professional analysts using terms like "hype" in place of 'projections' and posting ridiculously LOW valuations..? Consistently falling back on.."the competition is 'hot on the heels' of Tesla." Like two years out with production is deemed "competition"...? It assumes of course, Tesla does NOTHING for the next two years while it 'waits' for the 'competition' to actually get close. Personally...I see this under-valued PR as a GOOD thing. Yes, short term it suppresses prices...but it allows more time for retail investors like myself to get invested. A strong loyal retail long term investor base reduces volatility and increases stability. The institutional investors will come...they follow 'value'. They can't help themselves...
It makes me question WHY the downplay devaluation knowing they are misrepresenting the company they work for and the investors they represent..? Is it...?
1. A coordinated and concerted effort to suppress Tesla stock..?
2. Analysts using the same outdated and irrelevant industry model projections for EV that ICE manufactures have been using for defining THEIR profit projections...?
3. ...are they being 'bought' or blackmailed, because they seem to be otherwise intelligent people..?
The SnP seems to be playing by the same handbook as it meanders around, kicking tires, trying to decide if Tesla is ready and worthy of their "invitation"...?
Questions...? Does Elon have a 'say'...yes or no...as to whether or not he CHOOSES to accept, decline or post-pone their invitation at the time it's being offered...?
Can he defer his 'inclusion' to a future time of HIS choosing...?
Is it simply 'assumed' the 'invitee' will automatically accept..?
What would happen if Elon 'post-poned' Tesla's 'inclusion'..? An indefinite 'delay' may very well redefine their sense of 'urgency', value and demand, particularly if the stock is trading higher in a 'better market environment'. As a long term retail share holder, I'm ok with delayed gratification. This 'not yet' strategy would be novel shift of power..and lift some eyebrows...or is this being TOO disruptive..?
...I've never seen Elon shy away from an innovative disruption strategy in the past...? Yer doing an amazing job Elon. Take care of your body and your health. Balance is conducive to the long term. I wish you peace of mind and good health, your prosperity is assured...!
...THANK YOU...for helping me to assure mine...!!!
