    I thought clickbait was when you are reading a legitimate news article and there's a link for something that appears to be a different news article but it just opens a spam window instead?

    And in other musky news, tesla cut the price of their solar panels by a 30% if I remember correctly from the headline yesterday.

    That's some backwardass countryfuck logic right there.

    this company has no future and these suckers are going to be stuck with cars that don't run when it goes under in another year or two
    This is how: "Musk confidently told investors on the call that autonomous driving will transform Tesla into a company with a $500 billion market cap, these people said. Its current market cap stands around $42 billion. He also said that existing Teslas will increase in value as self-driving capabilities are added via software, and will be worth up to $250,000 within three years."

    He said that. He actually said that his cars will increase in value by 3-400 percent or more in three years. A car. He wants you to believe that an automobile, a thing that always, eventually, goes to zero, will be a hot investment. And this isn't laughed away by investors!

    I can imagine him in the mid ninteenth century, traveling town to town in his horse drawn wagon, selling various cures for common ailments with a carny barker's rap, and, well, succeeding.

    Big trucks and heavily armed can be indicative of other insecurities, like being afraid of everyday society.
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    The fanboys believe anything Musk says and take it even further. This is from the Electrek comments

    This guy thinks each Tesla should count as 5 cars.

    NASA burned a mission ready Apollo 1 capsule with crew during a crew rehearsal mounted on a Saturn IB rocket stack on the launch pad, a system otherwise deemed ready for the mission. There was no engine firing associated with the accident, rather an electrical fire in a pure oxygen atmosphere: stupid design flaws that asphyxiated and burned the crew and module.

    SpaceX blew an experimental hypergolic rocket on an unmanned test model crew capsule flight.

    Test rockets blow up. Mission ready rockets blow up too, but much less often. Space travel is hazardous.

    SpaceX is still way ahead of all their competitors after this testbed failure... and still cheaper.

    And the Beyond Meat IPO boggles my mind as well.

    http://time.com/5582512/beyond-meat-best-ipo-2019/

    Beyond Meat shrank its 2018 loss, while its revenue more than doubled for the second year in a row, according to its filings. Last year, it lost $29.9 million on revenue of $87.9 million compared with a 2017 loss of $30.4 million on revenue of $32.6 million.

    And this company is valued at $3.8b ????

    It's a function of investment dollars available rather than anything to do with discounting cash flows. Liquidity in the system has to go somewhere. It's why homes on the east bench of SLC are all $500-600k now. TSLA worth $30B+. Semiconductor industry sales down 15% YoY yet the semis ETF is up 50% in the last 6 months.

    Bizarro world. It has nothing to do with anything sustainable - unless you are of the opinion that constantly flooding markets with liquidity to drive wealth effect-led consumption is a viable economic policy.

    Personally, I'm really depressed at the short term obsession of govts & central banks. It reeks of desperation imo. They know they'll be overthrown if they let things normalize, so they just keep pushing more and more liquidity into the system. Today is a time where global powers that be are aggressively enforcing a high timeframe preference* on the public. Not a strategy that has produced good results historically, though it looks great before it goes sour.

    *high timeframe preference = instant gratification, as opposed to living below means & saving at individual level

    It was a well timed IPO happening right at the same time Burger King is announcing an Impossible Whopper launch.

    Nat gas makes loads of sense to use as a primary transitional fuel to get away from heavier forms of fossil fuels. Also would bigly help American jobs/investment/defense strategy/etc.

    But let's ignore that and focus investment on insolvent battery companies.
