He's been short this stock this year. Concerns are massive negative cash generation, along with major players entering electric vehicles. Tesla won't own the space. It had the same market cap as GM at one point even though they were producing the same amount of cars in a year that GM produced in a week. First mover advantage that is slipping away.

Own their debt through their bonds? No Tesla at all. They carry a a lot of debt and chronic production issues. Meanwhile, other carmakers are catching up like Porsche.

He buys and sells Tesla. A good trading stock. He treats it as an opportunistic holding. He has no idea right now where it may be going right now. When it comes to autonomous cars, he would prefer buying into Google.

Their e-cars are better than any of their peers. But there's a lot of cash burn in this business. It's hard to grow this business, and to grow Tesla needs to sell huge volumes. Musk has a massive edge over his peers; he designs beautiful cars. They could survive in this space and do well, but Musk, a visionary, needs somebody to run and grow his business.

There used to be profit expectations but then they had the worst quarter at the beginning of this year. They have run out of the full tax credits in the US. There are a lot of other competing electric cars coming on the market and they get tax credits. The playing field is more level in Canada.

[Water comes through their cars in a car wash?] He read this news item and has no idea whether it is true. The bigger issue is if you want to hand your money to this one's CEO? He has not been a good manager and not a good steward of your money. A lot of investors are throwing in the towel.

He is not a fan of the car from the point of view of performance. There is a lot about the body design that he does not find to be comfortable, however he does not take personal concerns into account when analyzing them. This company has needed to raise capital over and over again. If they are not generating free cash flow, then he cannot evaluate it.

Not a tech analysis stock. It's a person who's smarter than most, but can't get out of his own way. He's the wild card. He's dug his own hole. In need of someone else to run the company. Swings like crazy. News driven constantly. Not a hold. You have to jump in and out.

He does not normally short stocks -- but this is one he would short. It trades at a ridiculous multiple. Musk is crazy. There is growing competition in the space. It will take a lot longer for electric vehicles to become mainstream. They are too dependent on the slowing Chinese economy. Their bonds trade only 85 cents on the dollar. Long term this company may not survive. He would not go near it.

If you hold this, put a stop loss on this name. It has fallen below its 200 day average. It is a great product but there is a lot of competition. He doesn't know if the company can be profitable. The next support level is around $150.

It broke below $240 which is bad, and the next level is $193. It needs to break above $240. Tesla has gone in the opposite direction from the overall market in 2019 so far.

China a threat? This is way outside his space that he invests in. Their cash burn is very high. A very volatile stock with questions on debt and cash flow. The thought is visionary, but it is not "investable" from his perspective.

We became accustomed to the discussion is around the survival of Elon Musk as a CEO. He believes this is a company that is going to survive in the future. He drives a Tesla. He owns it in the aggressive portfolio. A very small position.

This is a really exciting company. They announce the model 'Y' tonight which is their SUV crossover. It will be a rollercoaster. Their strategy is to 'lean' into the risk to get explosive returns. He loves what they are doing, but he has concerns about their corporate governance. He is willing to bet the farm.

When you go to work, why park your car when it could be going around doing drive hailing, or making deliveries (self-driving). You could make enough money from this to make the monthly payments. They are getting rid of all his stores and you will have to buy the cars on-line.
