Good news for fellow Tesla bulls! "Tesla cracks revenue record and beats estimates, shares take off". 🙌 When did you start investing in Tesla?
Been with Tesla since mid-2019. That is when Elon Musk was constantly challenged for his lofty goals, inaccurate deadlines, and profitability playing into question. Fast forward to 3Q2020, though Reg Creds exceeds GAAP NI, my long-term theses still holds. Superior battery technology and cost-leadership, FSD/software integration, the clout power and cachet of the Tesla brand. Though I hate to admit this, the story of Tesla and its Founder still plays a hugely compelling reason to purchase a Tesla EV compared to the automaker manufacturers. Let us look in decades, not in quarters. I am more excited about Tesla's FSD by the end of 2020, looking forward to it!

Heard Tesla stocks have superb growth prospects. Should I go all in 100%?
Ditto with what the others had contributed. Going in 100% is literally multiplying concentration risk on so many levels. (Market risk, industry risk, sector risk, asset risk, single stock risk). Unless you are fully convinced with the stock, don't go in with the herd mentality just by ' hearing ' that it has great potential. I will play the devil's advocate. I have been vested in Tesla since mid-2019 when the price was around 200~ pre-split. I read news related to it at least once every other day, by keeping up with non-mainstream finance media. Whatever I say below is solely my opinion, and should not be treated as investment advice. There is a stark disconnect between Wall St. and the fundamentals of Tesla . Most, at the very least, 90% of analysts are still viewing Tesla as an automotive company. Traditional Wall St. Equity Research division operates in sectors/industries. I view Tesla as a company that is infiltrating all kinds of industries. Automotive, software, energy (renewables, Solar, Battery), ride-hailing, infotainment, etc. It is hard for traditional analysts to understand Tesla as these sectors are inherently intertwined within Tesla's business model. I see a paradigm shift from traditional ICEV to BEV. During the pandemic, Tesla manages to hit record deliveries, quarter over quarter. Mind you, it was during a pandemic where they had their factory shut down for 7-8 weeks! While Tesla was seeing growth in their deliveries, other traditional ICE manufacturers saw their deliveries and demand plummet. Credited engineers, including Sandy Monroe, had alluded to Tesla being years ahead of their competitors in terms of technology. If you went through their recent battery day presentation, what they are essentially telling us is their planned roadmap to scale up battery production, increasing range and efficiency, and reducing the cost of battery production. These are all plans that Tesla is doing to grow. I am not a material scientist nor engineer. I literally went to read up Battery research papers and listen to engineers rambling away with technical jargon that took me hours to understand. The result was truly impressive, what Battery Day was about. Just a final point before I bore you. What I liked about Tesla is, they barely spend a single dime on marketing. Go YouTube and lookup for Tesla. YouTube personalities, influencers, celebrities are raving over their new Tesla vehicles. Easily a few hundred thousand ~ million views per video. People who bought Tesla will talk to their family and friends about Tesla. Through word of mouth, demand will increase exponentially. That is the power of Tesla. The more Tesla cars Tesla sells, the more Tesla car Tesla sells. I still have a library of bull theses (ride-hailing network, Robo-taxi TAM, solar power TAM, battery patents, etc.) that I had formed throughout my one year plus of coverage. It is now up to you to do your own due diligence, form that conviction, and invest in it. Coming back to your earlier point. No, do not all in Tesla. Unless you have other streams of income that will still keep you living comfortably if Tesla goes to zero. Will be more than happy to talk about Tesla if you like to.

Tesla's shares slid 1% on top of the stock’s 10.34% decline during the normal trading session after “Battery Day". Guess it's time for Tesla bulls to strike? What platform to buy into Tesla?
I've been a heavy bull on Tesla since $200 (pre-split) Let's talk about Tesla for a while, but I'll save you the details on the company, the product and all that jazz. Let's talk about the stock price. - Faith in Musk & Co to achieve Tesla goals. I'm a Tesla Bull because of the maximum potential Tesla can go. They are nowhere near, so there are no financials, no revenue numbers on their Cybertruck, their Insurance expansion, their new batteries or their possible side businesses. All thats left is to trust in Musk to achieve that, and make sure that if he fails to do so, you are not impacted. - Understanding of the cult like nature of the stock Tesla's shareholders are like a cult. There are the super long term investors, fighting wtih the long term shorts. The increase of this group over the shorts caused the large and consistent spike in prices, as long term buying demand increased over long term selling demand. If the situation ever flips, Tesla suffers headwinds on a long term scale, the reverse might happen and the price will stay depressed longer. - The short term price speculations The current buying opportunity your looking at, is due to short term speculators running for the door when the Battery Day didnt announce anything revolutionary. This might turn into a long term downtrend (read before) or a short dip before a recovery (if speculators flood back in). Which group do you belong to? If you are a short term speculator, going in now for the chnance that it will spike is not a bad idea. if you believe in the long term potential + Musk and Co., making use of this chance is not bad too. Disclaimer, I am vested, heavily. I wont lie to tell you that I was disappointed and shocked by the price fall. I will be attempting to buy more if I can.

Just wondering, are there any up and coming Chinese Tesla competitors?
Hey Anon! Well, of course there are! Investors are actually pumping billions of dollars into Chinese electric vehicle (EV) companies and start-ups as they seek to out the next Tesla. Here are a few more prominent ones and the latest news revolving around them. ! Disclaimer: Information accurate as of 23 September 2020. 1. XPeng Inc (NYSE: XPEV) On 26 Aug 2020 (SGT), Xpeng, an EV startup backed by ecommerce group Alibaba , raised $1.5 billion through an initial public offering (IPO) in the U.S. Their shares soared more than 40 per cent on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in a day. ! Source: Google Xpeng was founded in 2014, led by former Alibaba executive He Xiaopeng. Alibaba was an early investor in the EV startup since December 2017. Xpeng produces two premium electric vehicles, the G3 SUV and the four-door P7 sports sedan. P7, which launched at the end of June, is a rival to the Tesla Model 3 in China. A third model is expected in 2021. 2. Li Auto (NASDAQ: LI) On 30 July 2020 (SGT), Li Auto, a five-year-old EV startup, raised $1.1bn on the Nasdaq through their IPO. Li Auto’s shareholders include online services delivery giant Meituan Dianping and owner of TikTok, ByteDance . ! Source: Google Following the listing, the company's shares rose by more than 12% over the course of the week before dropping to all-time lows in mid-August. The company's share price gains on 26 Aug came after investment bank Goldman Sachs and Bernstein Research analysts expressed their confidence in the stock and urged investors to buy Li's shares. Li Auto is founded by serial entrepreneur Xiang Li, and is the first company in China to commercialise what is known as extended-range technology for electric vehicles , aiming to help solve the problem of a lack of charging infrastructure across China. 3. NIO (NYSE: NIO) NIO made its debut IPO on the NYSE in September 2018. Tencent, Chinese multinational technology conglomerate and owner of WeChat had invested $510 million in Nio before its IPO. A year ago, the NIO was bleeding cash at a rate that many analysts believed could prove fatal. ! Source: Google In April 2020, Nio received a $1 billion cash infusion from state-owned entities and it’s Nio’s shares jumped more than 14%. In June 2020, Nio said it expects to raise up to US$344.2 million from a new share sale of 60 million American depositary receipts, which would be its first offering of shares since its listing in 2018. In July 2020, Nio surged 13% after reporting July deliveries skyrocketed and in August 2020, UBS analysts upgraded the stock , raising their price target dramatically from around $1 per share to $16. NIO Inc was founded in 2014 by Chinese entrepreneur William Li and has gained more than 230% year-to-date . 4. WM Motor Technology Group (Not yet listed) Chinese start-up WM Motor Technology Group, backed by Baidu just completed a 10 billion yuan ( US$1.5 billion ) Series D round of fundraising . This is especially significant because the investment exceeds those raised by its competitors Nio, Xpeng Motors, and Li Auto which raised between RMB 15 billion and RMB 20 billion before going public on US stock markets. WM Motor was Founded in 2015, manufactures and markets affordable battery electric vehicles under the Weltmeister brand. WM Motor is reportedly planning to file for a listing on Shanghai’s Nasdaq-style STAR Market in early 2021 . // If you are wondering about Tesla’s battery day 2020 and how it might affect its stock price, here are some thoughts! Hope this was useful for you!

Tesla

Which platform do u guys recommend to buy shares such as SIA, Tesla?
I currently use saxo capital markets as my main broker to trade US stocks and SGX stocks. And I have made and indepth tutorial video on how you can start using saxotradergo brokerage platform. I use DBS vickers to buy stocks using my CPF funds. BUT! You are lucky that you just started because TD amriterade just started thir promo for FREE commission!!! YES free commission. Oh and im not advertising it or anything, im just excited. BUT they take forever to reply or open accounts. Some of my youtube viewers emailed me and asking me if my account is opened or not they say it takes at least 3 weeks. So bottom line, if you can wait, use td ameritrade. if you cant, apply for saxo capital markets brokerage. its quicker.

$449 Tesla Buy or Wait?
Hi there! I think your answer lies within your question. If you are in for the long-term, then you shouldn't be contemplating whether to buy now or after Battery Day. I understand that you want to get in at the best price possible to maximize potential gains. However, that is extremely tough to do so. Unless you have a crystal ball to know where prices are headed leading up to Battery Day, then good for you. Otherwise, I recommend starting DCA-ing now leading up to Battery Day . If what you predicted is true, at least you can get in during the pullback. The conundrum with every stock investor is whether to buy now or later in hopes of a pullback. I was once in your position. My best advice going forward is to compile a list of investment theses, backed with evidence and data. You can watch videos on YouTube (HyperChange, Chicken Genius Singapore, Solving the Money Problem). They provide information and interpretations which may reinforce your thesis. I would recommend avoiding mainstream finance media (CNBC, MarketWatch etc.). Their view is horrendously narrow and short-term. I am glad that you will be holding onto Tesla for the long term, 5 years or more because that is when your theses will eventually playout. Remember, everything in the short-term is noises and wild emotions , including the build-up hype for Battery Day. $449 or $320 (Sept Lowest), doesn't really matter in the long-run. It is going to look like a typo on your charts in the future. I will end off with a quote by Baillie Gifford, Tesla's second-largest shareholder, ' Actual Investors think in decades, not in quarters '. _ All the best!

You should have seen the recent increase of 12% within a day. It's building the hype of Tesla battery day where Elon musk promises something big. it will be a stock for trading but definitely not for long term holding.

TESLA price will increase or pullback when Battery gets nearer?
If you have conviction in Tesla, you may wish to put more but do note that Tesla is a momentum stock, it has high volatility so you need to have the courage to hold if it drops. I bought some shares at $480 when the stock just split and then it plunged to $330. But for the first time ever, I'm so happy seeing a stock price dropped. I bought more at $350 and then at $400 yesterday. Haha. I'd like to get some more, but no more cash 😆 As shown by my personal experience, remember, not to go all in. After Battery Day, how the stock price will perform in the short term is anyone's guess. If you're holding long-term, the volatility will spread out over time and I'd see more gains as revenue pour in for Tesla. Elon is one of the greatest CEOs in the world (and he's damn funny too 😂 just follow him and read his tweets...epic) If you want to build up conviction, I'd suggest you can follow heydave7 (He invested in Tesla when it's at USD 30 per share then and still holding till this day) or Chicken Genius Singapore. Both are long-term investors who give insightful explanations into Tesla on their YouTube channel / Twitter. You can diversify into other great companies which has a lot of potential too. I also invested in other companies. At the moment, Tesla is not my top position. As always, please do your own due diligence.

Esty got in to S&P500 but Tesla did not?? Oof. What a blow to Tesla... Would you still want to invest in the latter?
S&P500 or not, it doesn't affect the fundamentals of Tesla, its vision, mission, and business model. In fact, if Tesla was included in the S&P500, the only implication is Funds/ETFs replicating the S&P500 are obligated to snap up Tesla shares. That is all . Nothing fundamentally changes to their overall business. I am personally vested in Tesla. Sharp falls like this only makes me smile. Because I am convinced that the stock falling for the wrong reasons: 1. Stock split (doesn't change the fundamentals) 2. $5 Billion offering (smart move to raise capital at high valuation) 3. Second largest shareholder shaving positions (inevitable, they have regulations to follow as they have fiduciary duties) Every sharp fall is like a black Friday sale for me. I will be glad to accumulate positions. Why so? 1. Safest vehicle tested 2. Largest data lead in FSD 3. Lowest cost of ownership 4. Massive supercharging network 5. Superior battery technology 6. Infotainment 7. Energy storage 8. Solar roofs 9. Robo Taxis 10. Autonomous Semi Fleet 11. List goes on... I'm entirely convinced that Tesla will be the future. That's why such news doesn't spook me. Nevertheless, if you are interested in Tesla, do your DD before making any decisions. Don't invest solely on emotions (FOMO, FUD). For now, I am a massive Tesla bull, and I believe in Elon Musk.
