“The TSLA of cast iron from $418 at the end of the year, to a maximum of $969, on the 4th of January, caused only moderate loss, as a large part of our short position has been structured in a pit spread. Considering the continuation of our positive vision of society, and we have done a good job maintaining a large exhibition of our thesis work, while avoiding big losses at the parabolic move higher.
However, in the wake of the market decline, we expected to be rewarded in our TSLA puts. TSLA does not have a conservative balance sheet, and has all sorts of exposure to the current financial crisis. Luxury car sales of all types are likely to collapse in a recession. We will not know right away, because TSLA of the plant has been closed and the company may apply (without seeing the irony) and that the current demand is greater than supply.
The closure of the factory, it is also inappropriate, because TSLA still has a window in which its Model-3 and Model-Y in the face of limited global competition. The window begins to close, as TSLA has already lost a lot of share in Europe in the electric vehicle market. The next year, the U. s. market, should be in the same competitive manner.
In The first quarter, announced on Wednesday), has raised a host of new questions. For the last several quarters, TSLA has been made that the accounts receivable balances that are difficult to reconcile with its business model – where customers pay before taking delivery. TSLA has given multiple and contradictory explanations. The most recent version claims that it takes a few days for payments to clear the bank, and a little more time to arrive in Europe. TSLA also argued that, because sales are crammed into the end of the quarter, so it is important to know if a quarter ends on a day of the week. In The first quarter and ended on Sunday, and in contrast to previous quarters, TSLA, sales have not been crammed into the last week of the quarter due to the pandemic. Does TSLA prior to the explanation of the correct leg, the days of sales outstanding (DSO) must have plunged. Instead, they have increased.5, The claims remain a source of mystery. To the extent that they exist, it is unlikely that they are explained by TSLA answers.
TSLA product today two plants, which has increased its overhead costs, while usage rates are down significantly in the city Centre. In spite of the effect of product mix and the launch of the Model in the axe, the mill closures in its factories, and the currency headwinds, TSLA only a slight drop in the automotive gross margin (excluding the regulation of credit sales for the quarter. Given the circumstances, it is difficult to explain. In addition, TSLA opens the doors of its factory in China while still in some sort of declaration to lower amortization and general expenses expenses sequentially. None of this makes sense to us, and casts doubt on TSLA in the income statement.
TSLA is not a “growth” stock, it is rather a “story” stock. Just like TSLA leave in its manufacturing workers, fires and a part of the sales force, cuts everyone’s salary), and to renegotiate its rent with the owners, Elon Musk, is days away from almost $ 1 billion of the option, bonus6, due to TSLA maintaining artificially inflate the price of the shares.
The TSLA story” resonated strongly with ESG investors. Relating to the corporate Governance, the insurance industry seems to get the joke. TSLA seemed to be unable to obtain D&O insurance on commercially reasonable terms. Administrators are now provided by the Musk. This creates an obvious conflict of interest that paralyzes the Administration of the ability to reduce Deer behavior that now, he can threaten that if the Council was brought down, and the insurance can not have a value. The Making of the Administration order to meet the Mandarin, by definition, they are not independent.7
Musk overhyped response to the pandemic was the echo of his behavior in previous crises, and is a bit different from its false promises to its customers. For example,an 8 for the last three years, TSLA has sold vaporware add-on, you can have a complete self-driving for thousands of dollars. A year ago, Musk stated that: “when the company’s software is “complete,” it could start to enable TSLA cars to operate as stand-alone “robotaxis” from the mid-2020s. In the fourth quarter, or 2019 at the latest conference call, Musk admitted that “the full functionality by just means, like, he has a chance to go from your home to work and back, let’s say that, in the absence of intervention.”
However, with TSLA’s share price, on the edge of the fortress of Musk with a bargain, he recently used Twitter to double down on the “robotaxi in 2020” of the narrative.9
As President, He was called in Mandarin a “genius” who “must be protected”, which is strange, since TSLA has moved its manufacturing to China. “The President didn’t seem to mind… yet. This could be TSLA undo, like its history, and increasingly depends on China, at the same time less expensive, the manufacture, as well as the consumer demand against a backdrop, or the deterioration of relations between the two countries. TSLA shareholders are becoming huge political risk in betting on TSLA in China,” master’s thesis.
Perhaps Musk behavior offhand, around the pandemic risk to its workforce, and calls on the government to respond to “fascist” – will reveal its true nature to the society in general, and reflected in the share price. Historically, stocks have promotions like this tend to relax in and economic cycles. TSLA advanced about 25% in the first quarter, and another 49% in April, bringing its year-to-date, back to 87%.”
