    Could be valuable. Use them for negative advice. It's hard to be consistently right, and much easier to be consistently wrong!

    saw a couple of items today that are encouraging as far as Tesla hitting delivery target for the year (believe it is 2750-3250).

    first an article where an analyst estimated 1,150 November Model S deliveries...

    and right here on TMC, a new thread. apparently Tesla is looking to see who would be ready for December delivery if their car was produced in time. Reservationists, with 85kwh, some with production numbers up to 8,000, were emailed by the company.

    personally I think Tesla's doing just fine whether or not they hit the range, but reality is hitting the range or not has short term impact on TSLA.

    I sell everyday once the price is $1 above my purchase price. Ironically, the stock likes to fluctuate enough to allow me to buy back the shares at nearly the same price every couple days. No sell limits in the IRA accounts those are in for the very long haul.

    Wasn't that the strategy that sent Lenny Dykstra to bankruptcy? Basically capping gains at $1, but unless you similarly cap losses you're screwed the stock ever takes a long term dive.

    I know that you guys don't have crystal balls, but do you feel its possible for this stock to fall below 31 ever again? I would like to buy more shares, but a price of 33 I feel may be too high. I am long on TSLA and have very little investing experience so maybe I am being picky and should just get a price at 33 since I won't be selling for a few years anyway. What do you guys think?

    Unless there's some news, it may not fall to 31 anytime soon. Why not sell some 31 puts until it happens? You make money waiting.

    OT but it looks to me like he was living beyond his means and got nailed by the 2008 financial crisis.

    "In July 2009, Dykstra, whose net worth was estimated at $58 million in 2008, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, listing less than $50,000 in assets against $10 million to $50 million in liabilities. Dykstra claimed to be a victim of mortgage fraud and lost a house purchased for $17.5 million from Wayne Gretzky to foreclosure.[23] The house is located in the Sherwood Country Club development in Thousand Oaks, California. [24]"

    I am pretty new to investing and puts even more so, never did one. A good suggestion as I understand their premise so I will have to do more research on how to do them and fully understand them before I shoot myself in the foot. Right now I have 257 shares at avg 29.31 so that is a decent amount for my income, heh. Hate to screw it up.
