Welp, covering expiring 290s yesterday was unfortunate. At least still have Jan 19 200s and Jan 20 100s

Re: TSLA showing cracks?

This whole thread seems like nonsense at this point. I think everyone forgets that this company wouldn't even exist right now if the market weren't in a ten year GOAT bull run. It arguably may not have existed long before now.

Yeah no kidding. Was a good cover though. The CAO leaving so suddenly was pure luck. Time value bleed was the most likely outcome.

No reason you can't reenter today. All sane money is dumping.

Re: TSLA showing cracks?

1. TSLA is hot garbage whose ultimate value is $0.

2. I could see it bouncing to 300 here just based on short covering and technicals. At some point, the bad news has to slow down. They're not going to lose 2 C-levels every day. Their Q3 numbers are probably going to be enough of an improvement that bulls can imagine a pathway to profitability.

3. That said, I certainly wouldn't exit longer-dated puts here. Just saying there's probably going to be a better entry. Of course, I've never seen the CEO of a major company have a psychotic breakdown, so the timeline of its collapse is hard to predict.

Are you actually serious? This is one of the dumbest comments I've ever read that was meant to be serious. It's twice as dumb because of the arrogance.

In which ****ing sense does it catch up with Musk? You guys are only talking, because he (for his very own reason) is not raising money by selling equity. You guys would be quiet if he had $3bn more in the bank - let alone $5-10bn.

You really think this is the most probable reading of the evidence at this point?

Outrageous, seriously pissed off Elon didn't inhale. Stock should be crashing on that news alone. Rookie mistake...

If you think it's dumb, then please explain why. Also, explain the arrogance part as well, because I'm not really sure what you mean by that.

Re: TSLA showing cracks?

A thesis floating around is Elon should want his shares margin called (starts at 232) to repay his loans, because he cant sell right now likely with SEC/MNPI


If TSLA has to file BK before margin called he would likely be liable for his personal loans and have to liquidate other assets (spacex shares)


It makes a lot of sense.

I mean if this all ended with Elon someone saving himself by screwing the cult, it would just seem so fitting.


The movie/mini series would be so lit too.

Are the inhale posts jokes? I dont think anyone cares if elon smokes weed. I think people care that he is dumb enough to do it on a live stream.

I was joking about him inhaling but honestly it isn't a great sign to do it on a stream and not even know how to do it properly.

Re: TSLA showing cracks?

Hypothetical scenario that I give a ~10%-20% chance of happening in the next few months:

How do we think the market will react if Tesla gets a capable #2 to Musk to help manage operations? Seems that would be a pretty huge positive for the stock

How do we think the market will react if Tesla's board ousts Musk? Price crashes significantly further right? I think this scenario has a ~2%-5% likelihood in the next few months.

I get that ultimately the thesis has more to do with cash/debt at this point but these are also in play and will impact the price.
