About Tesla? You can argue for hours to buy or to sell Tesla . Tesla has been everybody´s D
darling some years ago and now is one of Retail Investors most shorted stocks.

22 % of all outstanding shares from Tesla are still shorted.


Guess what happens now, if ever TSLA might rise only a bit further? TSLA today is at 226 USD. The All Time High is at 285. Each single US-Dollar this stock might go higher mountains the pain and pressure to any shortseller. The rest is pure mathematics.

Tesla acquires a German automation company to accelerate vehicle production
8 comments
by Jordan Golson@jlgolson Nov 8, 2016, 7:01am EST

Tesla has agreed to acquire Grohmann Engineering, a German firm that specializes in automated manufacturing. Founder Klaus Grohmann will also be joining Tesla and will head a new division within the automaker called Tesla Advanced Automation Germany.

Tesla plans to add an additional 1,000 engineering and technician jobs in Germany, on top of Grohmann’s existing 700 employees, over the next two years as the company looks to aggressively ramp up electrical vehicle production at its Fremont, California factory. Tesla has said it wants to increase production from around 80,000 cars in 2016 to 500,000 cars in 2018. Its more affordable Model 3 EV is expected to begin production late this year.

Comment: Tesla´s new Radar Technologie:

First watch this video ...

Tesla’s autopilot new radar technology predicts an accident, applies brakes before crash

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJo2w7Qe...

This video was postet by Elon Musk. How many views you can read? 4.318 until today, Januar 10th 2017. If ever there might be any kind of "failure" any video got millions of clicks in a few hours or days only.

You can earn money from this. Be ahead of the crowd. You see that the upgrade is working succesfully. What did Tesla changed?

- faster chip (what you really can feel or see in this video)
- using radar instead of video cams.

You remember why TSLA failed to deliver 80.000 cars like announced in 2016? It was exactely this autopilot upgrade (hard & software) what cuts the number of delivered cars to 76k instead of 80k.

Watch Telsa to close in it´s ATH at 268 USD. If ever TSLA climbs above this number than short sellers need to buy TSLA stocks to close theire short positions.

Do you know the fact´s & figures? The short interest rate is still 22% - or 35 Million TSLA stocks need to be bought back. This is nothing else than an 8 Billion US-Dollar Stock Buy Back Programm. This 35 Million short sold stocks need to be bought back in a few days only.

Anyway: There are just 160 Million stocks outstanding. If ever Tesla offers any kind of stock split than TSLA can go rise up to 100 US-Dollar in one day or a few days only without any problems.

How?

Powered by 35 Mio. outstanding short sold stocks.

Elon Musk: Model S 'ludicrous' speed about to get more ludicrous
Published: Jan 12, 2017 2:00 p.m. ET

Tesla Motors Inc. TSLA, +0.16% CEO Elon Musk tweeted earlier Thursday that early results around a software "Easter egg" are "promising" and could enable a Model S equipped with "ludicrous mode" to go from zero to 60 miles an hour in 2.34 seconds. The mode currently allows the priciest Model S trim to achieve that same pace in 2.5 seconds. The boost would take the Model S around the same accelerating speeds of ultra-luxury cars such as Porsche's 918 Spyder and the concept car Faraday Future unveiled at the CES technology conference last week.

Actually the short interest rate in Tesla is 22% or 35 Million Stocks. 99,9 % of those stocks have been sold below 268 USD. If ever TSLA might rise another 30 USD than Investors need to cover 35 Million TSLA stocks. To buy this sold stocks back investors need to pay 8 Billion US-Dollar.

Renault reports record 2016 sales, expects further growth

Gilles Guillaume
Reuters
January 17, 2017 12:35 CET

PARIS -- Renault Group reported record sales for 2016 thanks to growth in Europe and in overseas markets such as India and Iran, and it expected more progress this year.

Sales rose 13 percent last year and vehicles sold in 2016 topped 3.18 million vehicles - a sales record, the automaker said.

"Our strategy of product range renewal and geographic expansion, under way for several years now, has proven to be successful. It enables the Groupe Renault to progress significantly in terms of volume and market share in every region," said Thierry Koskas, member of Renault's executive committee, in a statement.
Renault's figures painted a similar picture to that of rival PSA Group which last week also reported higher sales, with the lifting of international sanctions against Iran boosting PSA's sales there.

The Surprising Reason Tesla Could Jump 25%
Donald Trump, once seen as a Tesla foe, may become its biggest fan, says one analyst.
By Emily Bary, Jan. 19, 2017 4:34 p.m. E

Perhaps Donald Trump will eventually add a few Teslas to his motorcade.

The “surprisingly supportive political environment” is one reason why Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas just upgraded Tesla Motors shares to “Overweight,” recommending that clients buy the stock. Jonas thinks it could rise to $305, 25% above current levels.
While investors initially worried about Tesla’s prospects in a Donald Trump presidency, the stock is up 35% since early December, including a 2.3% gain Thursday, bringing the stock to $244.
Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk is a strategic advisor to Trump and is doing plenty of things that probably make the president-elect happy, like employing 25,000 U.S. workers and building what the company hopes will be the world’s biggest factory. “While we cannot explicitly apply a monetary value to this relationship, we believe this level of coordination with the new administration could actually evolve into greater strategic value than with the prior administration,” Jonas wrote in a research report Thursday.
Tesla got some other good news Thursday, when federal regulators closed an investigation into Tesla’s autopilot features, without finding Tesla at fault for a fatal crash last May.

Reuters) - Tesla Motors Inc (O:TSLA) changed its name to "Tesla Inc" as Chief Executive Elon Musk looks to transform the Silicon Valley firm from an electric car maker to a diversified energy products company.

In October, Musk unveiled solar-powered roof tiles that eliminate the need for traditional panels and a longer-lasting home battery illustrating the benefits of combining his electric car and battery maker with solar installer SolarCity Corp.
Tesla won approval in November from its shareholders to acquire SolarCity, for a stock swap deal worth about $2 billion, in which Musk was the largest shareholder.

Qoute: While investors on Wall Street debate whether Tesla's ambitious transformation from electric car maker to sustainable energy company will pay off, its industrial power packs are already having an impact on at least one state.
In Hawaii, the Kauai Island Utility Cooperative (KIUC) is now drawing energy from 272 Tesla power packs to provide electricity after dark. While the island previously relied on solar and other renewable energy during the day, it had no way to store the sun's power after it went down.
Using stored energy from Tesla's power packs is expected to save KIUC 1.6 million gallons of diesel fuel annually, which has traditionally been the way the utility generates power after dark.
Tesla says the power packs will cut KIUC costs per kilowatt hour from 15.5 cents down to 13.9 cents. The 13.9 cents is a fixed price for the next 20 years. Source: http://www.cnbc.com/2017/03/08/tesla-bat...

Quote: Tesla said it delivered just over 25,000 vehicles in the first quarter, up 69 percent from a year ago and a new record for the electric-car maker. The figure beat analysts' expectations that Tesla would deliver around 23,000 or 24,000 vehicles, and came after Tesla missed delivery expectations in the fourth quarter. It also put Tesla on track to hit guidance of 50,000 vehicles to be delivered in the first half. Tesla said 13,450 of those vehicles delivered in the first quarter were Model S and 11,550 were Model X. The company said an additional 4,650 vehicles were in transit to customers, which would be included in Tesla's second quarter numbers. Telsa cautioned that the final numbers could vary slightly, by up to 0.5 percent. Tesla shares closed Friday at $278.30 on the Nasdaq, up slightly from the previous day's close.

Quote: "Elon Musk mocks short sellers after Tesla stock surge"

By Noel Randewich
(Reuters) - As Tesla Inc's (O:TSLA) strong quarterly vehicle deliveries sent its stock to a record high on Monday, Chief Executive Elon Musk took a swipe at traders betting the luxury electric car company is on a road to ruin.

"Stormy weather in Shortville ...", Musk tweeted after Tesla's better-than-expected quarterly vehicle deliveries announced on Sunday sent its stock surging 5.8 percent.

Tesla said it delivered a record 25,418 vehicles in the quarter ended March, a 69-percent increase from last year and edging past Goldman Sachs' forecast of 23,500 vehicles. The Silicon Valley car maker in the past has missed production targets and its newest figures allayed fears of setbacks ahead of the hotly-awaited launch of its Model 3 sedan later this year. "This beat shows that they are managing production better," said Ivan Feinseth, an analyst at Tigress Financial Partners. Monday's surge in Tesla's stock gave it a market capitalization of $48 billion - surpassing Ford Motor's (N:F) $45 billion value and just below General Motor's (N:GM) value of $51 billion. Musk is correct about the misery suffered by those betting against Tesla, a popular trade on Wall Street where skeptics say the company is in danger of being overtaken by older, deep-pocketed manufacturers like GM. Tesla proponents, meanwhile. are betting it will become a carbon-free energy and transportation heavyweight. So far in 2017, Tesla short sellers have suffered paper losses of 27 percent, equivalent to $2.25 billion, according to S3 Partners, a financial analytics firm. To limit their exposure, short sellers have been trimming their bets against Tesla by buying back some of the shares they shorted. But since the stock has risen quickly, up 38 percent in 2017, their overall exposure to Tesla has grown. In the past two weeks, traders have reduced the total number of Tesla shares shorted by around half a million to 30.4 million. But since Tesla's stock has risen, the total value of short bets against Tesla has increased to $8.46 billion from $7.95 billion, increasing traders' overall risk, according to S3 Partners. "Shorts are rebalancing their exposure on this thing on a daily or weekly basis because it can pop so quickly," said S3 Director Matthew Unterman. Source: https://www.investing.com/news/stock-mar...
