    I'm not really sure if Tesla fits into normal "car sales" cycle due to they don't seem to have "year" cars. But isn't Q2 one of the lower historical quarters? Q4 is the highest volume b/c of "new year" cars being released?

    So they just beat their highest Q4 volume in a slow quarter?

    How is $TSLAQ taking this Gallant Knight ? Lies? Faking the numbers?

    Q4 was highest becuase they had a $7,500 tax credit that expired on 1.1.19

    Their $3,750 tax credit expired yesterday and is now half of that.

    they delivered a lot of cars. let's see how much money they made.

    once again, i don't have a position in tsla. i may initiate one tomorrow though

    Delivering a lot of cars is good news for Tesla. Now if they can stop giving away heated seats just to turn them off later maybe they'll actually make money.

    I assume that's 2020, not an execution date in 2 days

    2 days

    If those were in 2020 they would cost $50.50 not $2.45

    i am old enough to remember the stock popping up 10% AH and opening up 7% when they hit 5,000 mode 3 per week and the stock ending the day red

    Let me get this right. You bought 50 lots, right?

    So you spent 50*100*3.45 =$17, 250

    It's currently trading at 238.50,so you're out of the money. You need dit to hit 237.50-3.45 (put cost) =234.05 to break even.

    Right? So you really need it to go down 2.7% to break even, anything more is good.

    Or, if the stick falls off its 7% surge today, you could sell the option later today for more than 3.45, right?

    I wonder about the market close and no news it it'll stay kind of flat.

    Opening up 7% from yesterday is a pretty big jump and there still is negwnees today about deliveries ain't the end all be all.

    A lot of stocks that jump will fall back a little. I think you could be in the money by the end of today... Still absurd risky

    That's why I said he went from one extreme (holding for a significant amount of time) to 48hrs.

    Cmon dumb dumb

    He said he learned his lesson from holding it for a significant amount of time, meaning he wouldn't do it again, so holding 2 days lines up with that.

    I may be dumb but I can read.

    Yes, I know. That's exactly why I said it.

    He went from long term I hyper short term. That's changing extremes.

    Remember when you claim I argue with you just bc it's you?? I'm pretty sure that was you just projecting. No need to hop on that white steed for GK, we're having a nice conversation

    He was not extreme long term yesterday. In fact, he said he'd learned his lesson from it. He didn't change from yesterday to today.

    I'm not arguing with you, just pointing out that this post was wrong. Nothing changed from yesterday to today.

    Yesterday he said he'd learned his lesson from holding for long times.

    Today he bought 2 day puts.

    What changed from yesterday to today?

    Nothing

    i actually bought around 237.5 this morning so i'm about even.

    would be very happy if it dips into the 235s. i will probably sell today if that happens.

    You could have just said "I read his post from yesterday wrong" and avoided all of this. Admitting you're wrong isn't in your DNA though.

    Please tell me they included deliveries to dealerships abroad in the 95k delivery number

    That would be amazing and also a reason why like 3 VPs left over the last 7-10 days

    In Broward county we raised taxes 1% (6-->7) in order to build an express lane that will charge tolls.
