      August 8th was the day after funding secured - you had some excellent prices to sell at near all time highs as your risk....

    I would rather short actual frauds, like Marc Cohodes, than to go against Elon and all his followers. Risk/reward is too unattractive. Also beware of confirmation bias (on both sides).

    No brainer. Longer term put spread works on this too with lower cost.

    I'm a millennial in San Diego. Out of all my friends and colleagues, I'm one of the few that dislikes Tesla and Elon. When I tell them that Tesla has not made a profit they don't believe it and they think Elon is a god. I believe once other car companies make a truly bad ass looking electric car because nowadays people want EVs that are cool --- Not Prius' and Volt's. In my opinion, when you see multiple attractive females or males that are 40 and under driving a non-Tesla "cool" looking EVs. Then its the beginning of the end of Tesla's marketing and branding scheme that has propped up the company for so long. A good indicator for those that don't live in an area where people drive a lot....keep an eye on Instagram Hashtags for the new cars that will be coming out to see which ones are trending the most. That being said Social Media Analytics will determine the true demise of this stock and find the next up and coming new THANG that millennials will want to take pics with and post them on IG, FB, Snap, and Twitter --- because the only thing is important in life now is how many freaking likes you can get..... AND Currently TESLA has been winning that game. Disclaimer: I drive a lifted 2015 Ram 4x4
