It helps the long term case but would destroy the stock price

Chances of TSLA going private are actually going up now that the price is down.

Maybe true, but it seems incredibly unlikely anyone with $50B+ would be dumb enough to pay $420 for it, and now that that's the number Elon has thrown out there it's probably going to be tough to get shareholder approval at anything resembling a reasonable price until the stock crashes and burns and shareholders recalibrate their expectations.

I'm pretty certain gwestr is a TSLA bull parody, though based on the stuff I hear from some of the people I have talked to about Tesla's future prospects, I could be wrong.

Going private for a company that absolutely needs capital markets to survive is never going to happen.


Edit: obv there is capital available to private companies but not on the scale a company like tesla would need and also likely worse terms. It doesnt make sense, the idea is only being floated because elon wanted to hurt shorts and now the board has to pretend loke its a real option.


BK seems 90%+ now by end of q1 2019. Its the right move for them now, before they dont have a choice.

Re: TSLA showing cracks?

The claim of lost copper (unreported) seems credible enough. The simplest, least conspiratorial explanation seems like:

-Fully sloppy inventory, production, logistics, accounting, control, etc.

-Employee see an easy opening to steal

-The amounts become large and fencing them requires they deal with organized groups


Musk is playing much higher stakes, seems doubtful this operation went up to any important level of management.

Re: TSLA showing cracks?

I dont really buy the copper/drug stuff, just too many easy ways to steal from a company this size.

Also its a ****load of copper

Re: TSLA showing cracks?

It says copper and other raw materials. If they were getting dense copper, a cubic meter is ~20000 lbs and ~$50k. That's a hell of a lot of work to get tens of millions of dollars out the door. Even if they stole more valuable stuff, if the business model was trading material for drugs, then selling the drugs, they'd have to be selling drugs off elsewhere in epic amounts because gigafactory only has like 1000 employees. What the **** would they do with that amount of cash that the cartel wouldn't just kill them and take it (or drugs) back, or the same for whoever they dealt with locally? Maybe they stole a bunch of valuable ****, got paid like 5c on the dollar in drugs, sold the drugs to known locals, and got the hell out of town. I guess that's possible. But this going up to Musk (beyond something like Musk randomly buying personal use coke from an employee who happened to be doing this) seems super unlikely.

Re: TSLA showing cracks?

i think 'It's like a cyborg with like integrated cyborg thing.' should be their slogan going forward.
