I was interested in finding out what the analysts had to say after this earnings, so I found this:
https://www.cnbc.com/2018/10/25/heres-what-wall-street-analysts-had-to-say-about-tesla-earnings.html

It turns out the vast majority seem to be in some kind of denial. It sounds to me like they just don't like Tesla, regardless of what they numbers show. I thought numbers would convince at least some of them, but it looks like most of them just don't care. I think the bias goes deeper. ...

Has Andrew Left just started a mass exodus of TSLA shorts?

https://citronresearch.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/Citron-reverses-opinion-on-Tesla-too-compelling-to-ignore.pdf

Here’s the thing about Citron and Andrew Left. This is one of the biggest defections we have ever had in the TSLA short world. He’s not just a TSLA short who’s become a TSLA long. Rather, he’s an ideological TSLA short with a large following who’s become a TSLA long. This is important to note, because it...

Blog Post: Part 6 (Draft): Why Tesla needs to show up and win the media war

Some Tesla longs argue that Tesla doesn’t need to win the media war and should just focus on their target market of potential buyers for their cars.  In other words, as long as they have enough people to buy their cars, Tesla will do fine and ultimately win in the bigger picture.
This view is flawed because it minimizes the impact of media in our present hyperconnected age.  In other words, media today...

Blog Post: Part 5 (draft): The Turning Tide - The Unprecedented Campaign Tesla Ought to Launch to Take Back Their Narrative

In my last blog post, I made the argument that Tesla is losing the battle in the media and I gave some initial suggestions on how they can turn the tide.  With any company and product, there’s a certain narrative that surrounds that company and product.  The narrative, in the way I’m using the word, is the cumulative perception of the company and product by the company’s target market and also the general...

Interesting except from Richard Branson's book, "Screw it, Let's do it".

Although Elon has already explored going private and decided it wasn't the right thing to do, I can only imagine the relief Elon would have felt if Tesla actually went private.

If the stock price continues to linger, there's an increased possibility that Elon will re-examine the possibility of going private. However, if Tesla goes private then it's likely most, if not all, retail investors will be left out. And it's...

Richard Branson's advice to Elon Musk (via https://www.cnbc.com/2018/10/09/richard-branson-gives-elon-musk-some-advice-learn-to-delegate-and-get-some-sleep.html ):

Branson said he had sat down and "talked about it" with Musk, alluding to the fact he might have imparted some paternal advice for the younger entrepreneur. He repeated that learning the art of delegation better would overcome "his one flaw."

"Don't feel you have to put out tweets about public shareholders, leave the public game...
