    I had (have) higher expectations. But with today's dip, the question will be what is happening to the SHORT population. Regardless, holding TSLA is better than not.

    cnbc: jim cramer calls elon musk 'a big thinker, who makes the rest of us seem like lilliputians'.

    cramer says it's not just about cars, it's about the future of energy.

    I’m impressed at that insight, from of all people, Cramer!

    You give him too much credit. He's mostly an entertainer with a large rear-view mirror. Most would do better to ignore his advice, even though like a broken clock...

    he admits that he wasn't a tesla or musk fan until his wife purchased a model x and he drove it.

    he is entertaining though. investing advice? he's no worse than me :p

    even tho i'm no fan of Cramer - try reading his bio on Wiki. You will come away impressed. He has quite a bit more substance than the average person in the know would EVER believe. For example, while attending Harvard Law, he made enough (buying/selling stocks) to pay his way through school and was at the top of his class, magna cumlaude.

    Curious news:
    1. Thursday unemployment numbers are up and the market goes down.
    2. Wednesday Musk pleads for skilled employees.
    What is wrong with this picture? NOTHING!

    I really don’t care for Cramer. However, for a media personality to be able to change their mind and then tell the audience why (without some face-saving lame excuse) is rather impressive.
    Yes, it is sad how low that bar has become :confused:

    He also made the most insightful comment I have heard from anyone who isn’t a perma-bull.

    I still won’t be following his stock advice, but I won’t begrudge him following mine :ROFLMAO::p:ROFLMAO:

    The Dow dumped 200 points today. Not so with Tesla.
    Myopia; only being able to see things up close ..... just like looking up close at the past few months of Tesla price? Instead of stepping back 10 years?

    I really like this roller coaster.

    Long term: rocket. Day-to-day: rollercoaster.

    How about we settle with “rocketcoaster”.:D

    my friend just picked up 10 at $1,645, thinks it's better to buy now rather than after

    Seemingly a lot of people thinking that right now. I don't hate the price right now, but I'm currently a little overexposed in it the way it is.

    I have a sell order for a small lot at ~$2,000 but I’d bought at ~$300. My expectation is a ‘dead cat’ bounce in TSLA price after the split.

    In reality, other than ‘weeding’, this might be an expensive time to buy. I can safely take profits and hold until prices become more reasonable with expectations. When Berlin and Austin begin building the interiors, half of my remaining 401k goes into stock distributed between TSLA, gold mining, and battery element mining.

    When you said some magic words:
    It reminded me of post #39 earlier in this thread.
