    TSLA Stock: Analyst Issues Brilliant Takedown of Tesla Motors Inc

    My analysis: This is yet another financial analyst who is trying to understand Tesla as just another car manufacturer. He points out the ridiculously high P/E ratio and "a market cap bigger than Mazda, Fiat, Ferrari, and Porsche combined". He points out Tesla's inability to meet production estimates in the past. If you're interested in TSLA as a short-term investment, and are counting on Tesla meeting quarterly guidelines, then this analysis is spot-on, and you should avoid owning TSLA.

    HOWEVER, if you believe Tesla is about to up-end the entire automotive market, then ignore this type of analysis. You don't care if Tesla doesn't meet their quarterly guidelines. You don't care that they've just gone further into debt to finance the Model 3 rollout. You think that Tesla is going to drag the other auto manufacturers kicking & screaming into producing almost-as-good EVs themselves. Then grab some TSLA and hold on for the long-term.

    And many analysts don't honestly report the effect of Tesla's guaranteed resale value program. They put on an unwarranted negative spin! It is shown essentially as a liability when in fact actual values now exceed the projected values. In fact it has no impact yet is repeated called a big unknown liability by naysayers.

    Right, They have no vision. Tesla has always had the vision that their cars could be the best of any vehicles with any fuel. With their safety they have done that and more. Their AP Auto Pilot is ahead of anyone. The Super Charger Network is the fastest and best in the entire world. When you add in the GigaFactory and PowerWall they have it covered. The fact that the GigaFactory is the 2nd biggest factory of any in the World and runs on 100% Renewable Energy with Solar PV and Wind is just another amazing progress mark in a clean world.
    I'm long on Tesla stock and it will keep growing for a long time to come. A few slanted news stories makes it go up and down but the long term value is there. No other company has done so much is such a short time.
