I just watched the live stream.

Honestly, I am impressed yet again. A lot of negative press today on Tesla, but in reality, they've been very creative in many ways with these new systems. The "summon car", auto-park (with you outside), and obviously the technology they are using for the lane keeping and crash avoidance is far superior to anything else available.

I also liked the "resistive steering", in other words an active feedback if you are steering into something dangerous, but it will allow you to retain control.

It seems a lot of people are panicked about liability.

Elon himself mentioned you may only use the "summon car" mode on private property, which clearly sounded like a liability clause.

Has anyone found any statements by Elon or Tesla that speak directly to insurance liability or Tesla's own liability with regards to the automated driving systems?

Market disappointed that we'll still have to use our hands and make decisions while driving.(most of the time) Holding long term core position, looking for test of 40wk ma. Will consider adding there, or exiting on a weekly close below.

Elon Musk

I'm a big fan of Elon Musk, this interview below is really inspiring and interesting for anyone who isn't too aware of who he is or what he's about, I'm not sure how a big a celebrity he is in the US, in the UK most people haven't heard of him.

Tesla: Why So Bearish?

Summary
  • Analyst non-GAAP EPS estimates continue to decline.
  • Is a Q3 non-GAAP loss possible?
  • Falling estimates makes a beat easier.
  • Markets have settled down. It may be time to buy.
  • When it comes to Tesla Motors (NASDAQ:TSLA), profitability is one issue that continues to plague the company. This is an item that I've detailed over time, and one that I said is most important currently. Recently, we've seen analyst EPS estimates continue to decline, and they just hit two key points. Today, I'll discuss why the view of Tesla is becoming more bearish, and why this could be a reason to buy shares.

Q3 hits the flat point:

The company detailed in its Q2 investor letter how it expected to see marginal non-GAAP profitability in Q3. This is due to a couple of factors. First, due to a production shutdown, the company only expects to deliver 7,800 vehicles in the quarter. Without the shutdown, that number would have been about 9,500. As a point of reference, the company delivered 7,579 vehicles in Q2. We'll find out the actual number when Tesla reports on November 5th.

With the company only expecting another 200 or so more deliveries, that obviously means revenues won't be tremendous. When Tesla reported Q2 results, analysts were looking for more than $996 million in non-GAAP revenues during Q3. Currently, analysts are looking for less than $894 million. The reduction is obviously due to less vehicle deliveries. In Q2, Tesla reported non-GAAP revenues of $857.5 million.

With revenue estimates coming down by more than $100 million, you had to figure that non-GAAP EPS estimates would drop as well, and they have. At the Q2 report, analysts were looking for a profit of $0.30 per share on a non-GAAP basis. Tesla stated that it expected its non-GAAP automotive gross margin in Q3 to be consistent with the prior quarter. Additionally, R&D expenses were expected to be up 20% sequentially, with SG&A expenses up 15% sequentially. Also, the share count rises by the quarter, and that hurts the earnings per share number.

Currently, analysts are expecting Tesla's Q3 non-GAAP EPS to be zero. We've hit the flat point, and that's fairly important. Even in my latest article, forecasts called for a penny profit, and now that is gone. If we get any more estimate cuts, analysts will be looking for Tesla to report a non-GAAP loss in Q3. However, there is one good piece of news here. As estimates continue lower, it makes it easier for Tesla to beat. In the table below, you can see how Tesla has done a good job of blowing away estimates over the past year.

Significantly Improved Leasing for a Tesla with US Bank | Blog | Tesla Motors


Quoting 
Tesla is pleased to announce that US Bank, which has a much lower cost of capital than us, is now offering very compelling leasing for Tesla buyers in the United States. This will lower monthly lease payments by as much as 25% on a new Model S. Detailed info here.

Leasing now also comes with the Tesla happiness guarantee. If you don't like our car for any reason in the first three months, you can just return it and your remaining lease obligation is waived. The only catch is that you can't then immediately lease another Model S. Upgrading early is no problem if you want to do that, but there is a pass-through fee to cover the new vs used value difference.

As always, leasing a car with Tesla involves no signatures or paperwork, unless required by your state DMV. You just read the super simple terms & conditions on the center screen, tap once and it is done.

Also, there is no need to come to a Tesla store to order our car. It takes less than 5 minutes to order a Model S at the TeslaMotors.com website, just like any normal buying experience on the Internet. You enter your info, specify when you want the car to arrive and it will be delivered to your local Tesla service center for pickup. If one of our service centers isn't conveniently close, we will deliver it directly to your home or business location anywhere in the United States.

- Elon

I love this guy, and his company.
