Tesla: Trying to Put the Auto in Automobile


Tesla – a car company, or not. If you believe it is, then you won’t go near this valuation. If you back the story that this is a technology powerhouse with a bright future in autonomous driving, then you just might. As we cover in this research report as a pre-cursor to the next quarterly earnings release, the economics around the automotive business have deteriorated sharply. For Tesla bulls, it’s never been more important for the FSD thesis to come to the fore.

Magic Markets Ep160: Tesla and Volkswagen


From shoes to cars – in this weeks podcast, we tackle Tesla and Volkswagen. After some important debate on whether Tesla makes ugly cars or not, we got serious about the financial performance. In the interests of a more balanced view, Tesla-permabear The Finance Ghost stayed away from that company and let Mohammed Nalla cover the Cult of Musk.

The recent financial results are important of course, but Tesla bulls are in this stock because of what the future might hold.
