Default TSLA

So TSLA has had a nice move since the S&P announcement. Will it spike a bit more on the effective date when the associated index funds have to own it? Or will that already be priced in?

Who knows? I own a single share as a lotto ticket, my only b.s. speculation in our portfolio.

I'm not invested in TSLA, I'm invested in the Tesla cult continuing to drink the kool-aid.

Cathy Wood could be right and this thing could be a 20x bagger from here. It's a pretty devoted cult. They can slap together shitty cars in tents, scare off in-house counsel repeatedly b/c of rampant fraud, spit in the SEC's face, etc. and the cultists just buy in even more.

Invest all your retirement funds in TSLA now. Timing the market always works well.

Approx 95% of my investments are in broad-based index funds. I bought TSLA for "entertainment" purposes, if you will, joking with my family that I was hoping to realize a gain sufficient to pay for a Tesla car. It's more than tripled since I bought it, but not enough to buy the car yet.

Excellent! I'm $160-ish.

I saw where Tesla has changed the truck production factory from 8/hrs a day to 24.

I hope I get mine in 2021 but will just have to wait and see

Years ago, I bought 1000 shares of Solar City. A few years later, TSLA bought them out with all stock, and I got a whopping 88 shares of TSLA for my 1000 SCTY. I later bought 12 more shares, bringing my cost basis to just under $400 per share. For years I sold calls at 400 any time there was money in them, until one of the big run-ups finally returned my $40,000 to me. I have never looked back.

Do any of you guys really think we are going to electric cars, and wind/solar power in the next 10-15 years? If not, unless you are very young, why would you invest in this company at current valuations?
