    My background is in solar energy and battery tech. PhD scientist who retired at 51. I watched the presentation yesterday and thought two things. One, if he can drop the price of the batter by over 50% in the next few years Tesla’s margins look great even if he want to drop the price of the cars. Two, the mbas on Wall Street and the novice retail investor has no idea what words like “passivation” and “electron mobilization” means. Elon has to talk in little buzzwords and slogans for it to mean anything to them. Anyway, I bought today.

    I dreamed last night that Elon was going to stand up on stage and announce they had engineered the first battery cell that could produce 500000 miles of energy and was planning to design a new rocket that could reach Mars in half the time........Then I woke up.........15k less in my trading account.

    TSLA Stock is currently at a price where a small number of large investors are able to sell their shares to the greater public including the ETF, 401K, and the like at a significant profit. becuase the price is so out of alignment with the stock market averages, they can take their time in order not to cause a panic drop. Once they have unloaded a majority of their positions, it will be up to the retail stock holders to keep the prices up instead of on the insitutional groups. unfortunately, retail holders cannot coordinate well enough and the institutions only need to increase their short positions to generate ALPHA profits (profits both directions.) Tesla is the perfect vehicle for this, a cult following and actually simple tech (batteries and electric motors) that can be made to appear like high tech rocket science. the averageinvestor just repeats meaningless techno jargon but has no real comprehension that battery tech has been around for two hundred years.

    Main takeaways from battery day:

    - 10 TWh of internal cell production by 2030
    - 54% range increase
    - 56% reduction in cost per kWh
    - 69% reduction in investment per GWh production

    Incredible news for long term investors, nothing crazy for day traders.

    I asked my hubby to use simple words to summarize the battery day.😅Here is his report:

    Most important takeaways in the order of importance:

    Battery Production
    Tesla has completely reinvented battery production and design. Conventional process takes following steps
    Mining company mines raw material (ores) from earth
    Extraction company extracts minerals/metals from the ores.
    Processing company process the minerals/metals to produce “High Grade” materials required for battery
    A battery company uses these materials to manufacture cells

    With the new innovations, Tesla has simplified this process
    Mining company mines raw material (ores) from earth
    Tesla takes the ores and process it to include in cells

    This reduction in processing removes middlemen and significantly reduces cost. Since no other battery company has this technology, Tesla is easily 20 years ahead due patent protection.

    Silicon
    All convention rechargeable cells and batteries use graphite in cathode part of the cells. Graphite is nothing but a planar form of carbon, which is also used in pencil lead. Although graphite is common material on earth, silica (sand) is far more abundant. Further, extracting silicon from silica in large scale is well established by semi-conductor industry. Silicon is also not flammable, unlike graphite, which can burn. There are several advantages of using silicon, but has not been used as it can easily breakdown. Tesla has figured out a way to prevent this from happening. If it truly works, then this is an significant step forward in increasing power density

    Integrated Design
    Tesla is utilizing battery integrated in Aluminum frame as a structural material. Most cars are made with heavy material (e.g., iron and steel) to increase the weight. Increasing weight is necessary so that the car does flip or tumble when turning at high speeds (e.g., exit ramp on highways). For this reason, aluminum (which is lot cheaper and lighter) cannot be used. Tesla is using the battery’s weight and density to overcome the weight challenge with aluminum. This significantly reduces cost of structural material for cars.

    Battery Design
    Tesla also completely re-designed the architecture of cell. This again gives them lead against competitors by 10-20 years.

    I think there is a lesson for Musk here. Instead of making a "day" and a big show to let people know about new tech developments, just put out press releases. Why give the shorts perfect opportunities to play with the stock?

    I was about to buy two Tesla Model 3 cars for the wife and me... but now that I know there will be a $25K car in 3 years, I'll make do with the cars that I have and wait.

    Elon mentioned 30-40% growth this year. 367500 deliveries in 2019.

    Anyone with negative money right now? Please don’t worry... Tesla is going to be a trillion $ plus business within a few years. No battery, car or company will be able to keep up with the innovation of Musk and co. I believe this will be a multi trillion $ business within my lifetime. I was slightly underwhelmed by “battery Day”, however after digesting the information I am almost certain my investment will make me a ton of money. Don’t sell and lose, stay long and strong. I use Tesla Daily for some of my DD, here’s a link for anyone who wants to know... https://m.youtube.com/watchv=_hSlLskpttA

    Anyone who wants to battle about the PE?.... I’m not interested, do your research or watch us prosper. I wish everyone well either way, I hope we all make money one way or another! Please don’t make fun of others that lose though, that’s gloating and extremely disrespectful. Fact:- We’ve all lost at something in our life.

    Regards, Rich.

    truth above all
    Absolutely nothing bad was said, 2022 is 15 months away, and although Musk does make promises that don't always happen (immediately) he comes through more often than not. Sure we trade this company but how about an actual long term investment? I believe that Musk truly wants to make a better world, how many other companies can say that? How many American innovative products can make that claim?
    Im gonna stick with this company as an investor.

    Tesla is long term. People are crying because the stock is not going ballistic like it was. Tesla is unpredictable like Elon. Hang with Tesla to get the reward in the future.

    Wait a second. On September 10th I bought some shares for $340 and right now they are about $400 premarket and I am supposed to feel bad? One person said the stock is “crashing.” One problem with living 55 years is you get to see true crashes.

    You people who are saying the stock is crashing need to get a grip.

    Most stocks will go up about 10% in a year. Not 10 days. A stock that is up from 10 days ago has not crashed. In fact is doing amazingly well.

    It seems like earnings may not show a profit, judging by how Elon emphasized how HARD it is to make a profit in times like these. I’m hoping I’m wrong. Did anyone else get that feeling from Elon’s presentation today?

    Leaked Elon Musk Memo Suggests Tesla (TSLA) Has 'A Shot At A Record Quarter For Vehicle Deliveries'

    Leaked Elon Musk Memo Suggests Tesla (TSLA) Has 'A Shot At A Record Quarter For Vehicle Deliveries'
    We recently obtained a new email from CEO Elon Musk to all employees claiming that Tesla has a good chance to achieve a record quarter (Q3 2020) for vehicle deliveries.


    "We have a shot at a record quarter for vehicle deliveries, but will have to rally hard to achieve it. This is the most number of vehicles per day that we've ever had to deliver."

    As we all know, Tesla has been really busy during its quarter-end push. The last couple of weeks are known to be especially packed with California vehicle deliveries.

    One of our readers has provided us with recent drone pictures of the Fremont factory. As you can see, the parking lots are brimming with Model Y.





    "Please consider vehicle deliveries to be absolute top priority. It's also extremely important that we keep factory output as high as possible over the remaining 10 days. This is vital for the California market."

    Tesla is the leader in battery technology. Battery costs coming down, longer range, $25,000 car all means more revenue, dominating the market means more profit.
