quote:

It didn’t take long for the euphoria to fade.

Exactly 48 hours after Elon Musk triggered a frantic rally with a tweet saying he was considering taking Tesla Inc. private, the stock erased all of those gains.

Doubts have mounted about Musk’s ability to take the electric-car maker off the market, sending the stock tumbling as much as 4.6 per cent to US$353.33 in Thursday afternoon trading, well off the US$420 at which Musk said shareholders would be bought out. The shares have dropped on back-to-back days after having jumped 11 per cent on Tuesday, when Musk vowed that he had “funding secured” at a spectacular US$82 billion valuation.

for a guy who wants people to dump the pump he seems awfully fond of both of those things

(USER WAS PUT ON PROBATION FOR THIS POST)

cnbc says that tesla is actually very good despite being unable to make a worthwhile car because ~~AI~~

https://www.cnbc.com/2018/08/10/tes...ock-higher.html

the stock is actually extremely undervalued!

quote:

This is not a cult stock. Tesla stock is dramatically undervalued based on its leadership role in self-driving cars, including a superior amount of real-world driving data, the only proprietary AI autonomous driving chip and the fact that it is now self-funding on a go-forward basis.

also musk pinkie swore that they're going to be able to keep up production goals and they'll definitely be able to make a profit going forward!

quote:

Musk recently confirmed that Tesla will produce 50,000 Model 3's in the third quarter, an increase of 75 percent over Q1, and reach 10,000 per week in 2019. The dramatically increasing Model 3 production rate will take Tesla vehicles on the road to 700,000 by late 2018.

"confirmed"

guess they're just going to ignore that he says whatever the gently caress he wants to with no real world basis constantly

yep! also a lot of that alpha/beta stuff is apparently based on observation of canines in captivity and misses on behavior in the wild

whether that makes it more or less applicable to human beings is up in the air, depending on how comfortable you are equating society with prison

the alpha wolf guy straightup rejected his work too because iirc not just due to incomplete data and that they were in captivity but also the wolves he was studying weren't even related to eachother

so just hosed all around
