    It seems odd to me that with Tesla there is all this press and focus when it is really not much of a story anymore. Afterall I suspect most of us are mainly making money in the stock-market and by reverse extension in individual stocks. The money in Tesla has been made, and while it's still any interesting story in an overall sense, it's history. Take your profits or some of them, perhaps short it, but just focus on something else to make money. Hardly anyone did stories on it before it catapulted x5 into the stratosphere, but now there is a story everyday on it.

    Tesla has a head start, and a great car, no current competitor can get much more than 1/3 of their range, they are building out their super-charging networks, which no one else has, and are getting ready to produce the model x, a year or so from now 4th quarter 2014. The bumps in the road John refers to, have been largely rolled over, though there will still be twists and turns along the way.

    Sure if you want to buy or sell or short it go ahead, just realise that it is now a story that is out and everyone knows about it. It's history. It's something commentators will point to to illustrate some argument they are trying to make: remember when Tesla went from 30 to 190 in 6 months...but oh you caught me monologuing.
