    Wondering what anyone elses thoughts on the car manufacuturer are.

    They have some major investors backing them up 2

    Mercades 10% stake when they purchased in 2008

    I have been following Tesla since they received a patent for their curved solar panels.  The roof of the car is a solar panel.

    They need to diversify into more vehicle models, I would be optimistic about the future of Tesla motors.

    TSLA kind of tickles the imagination. It seems like a stock that a lot of people would like because it is a cool company.

    However, with a market cap of 3 billion and forward projected revenue of under $150 million.  It's market cap is 20 times its revenue.  It forward eps is -$2.00 for 2011.

    I think it is a real cool stock.  The question is how many years will take for a person to double their money with the stock.  I have not studied the financials of car companies but I do know that margins will be small.

    To get up to other automobiles PE's, TSLA will have to increase its sales 20 fold I would suspect.

    I would wait on this one.  This could be the dud of the century.  I would wait for at least better potential bookings.  Right now with its current sales, it will not be a good investment.

    Those are the fundamentals.

    Right now I would stick with value like COP, FCX (If you think it is high now, just wait as long as copper is high they will make bank.)

    Other good miners are GG, SCCO, SLW........These are a bit risky except for SCCO.

    Look for value in companies like BA or CAT if you believe there will be a recovery.

    A couple of good ETF's are OIH and XLE.

    I would research these aforementioned stocks.  As far TSLA, they are many years off.  I don't think this is a good entry point.

    Please note that these are for entertainment purposes only and you ultimately bare responsibility for your own investments.

    As an investment, the company's fortunes are entirely dependent on what deals they can make with other huge companies. On their own, it's a pretty terrible long-term investment, because there just isn't a big enough market for their cars to justify their spending. All of that changes if they can get a big car company to invest a giant stake in them and ramp up production, which should drive down marginal costs and allow them to lower the price to reach a broader market.

    This is not the type of car company that could have started without a lot of money (apparently the guy who started Paypal and sold it to eBay had a lot of pocket change), and it's the type of company that probably won't see profits for a long time without some outside help with production.
