Ha, funny to be called a muskateer. Never owned a single share of Tesla stock, nor do I think they even build the best EVs. I do own a 3, but for more ulterior motives than anything.

Yes the auto sector got wrecked last year. You can plot similar lines on GM's or Ford's 1Y charts.

Tesla 1Y chart is now inline with legacy automakers like Ford.

Tesla (-36% y/y)
Ford (-32% y/y)


This move was predicted a week ago.

Except for the X... something about the shape of that one doesn't sit right with me.
Model S is attractive. 3 and Y overall are just meh, not ugly. G8x are ugly.

There's dumpy-common ugly and flashy-blingy ugly and thought bmw and tesla designs are falling into ugly categories there's a difference.

Well the G8x is $20k+ more, I would hope it looked more expensive.

You're right. It's a rarity. I think I was just happy to see it. Anyways looks are subjective let's move on.

But WAIT! Was that prediction just media FUD?!?? Who's to say what's what? with all this FUD it's so hard to say right??

My point is, why are you surprised being called a Muskateer?

When you're repeating all their self-evidently silly propaganda lines, which is what they all do, of course you're a Muskateer! even if temporarily so, assuming that's possible ...

Do you not want to be a Muskateer? Cause then you're gonna have to start thinking for yourself and focus on, you know, facts & stuff.

I agree with the video, it was oversold. Yes I believe all the Twitter/Tesla FUD in Q4 was feeding the downswing(creating an oversold buying opportunity, now it is up 65% in 1 month). I guess if that viewpoint constitutes me being a muskateer...do I at least get a Tesla or SpaceX tshirt in the mail?
