All quotes about Tesla

Michael Farr

Investors were asked to employ a 'creative' valuation methodology. I think that means that when the numbers don't make any sense, one should ignore them and focus on other things. It's like being told to 'ignore the flames coming out of that airplane, I'm sure your trip will be fine.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

This investor group should buy Ford stock. Their governance is amazing. Besides, I already said we'd add more independent members during SCTY merger. Will announce soon, but this group has nothing to do with it.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

Besides, I already said we'd add more independent members during [Solar City] merger. Will announce soon, but this group has nothing to do with it.feedback

David Whiston - Morningstar

The market cares more about the potential new market value of the other businesses Tesla is in than about real profits and cash flow. Right now there is nothing to slow Tesla's momentum. They could pass Honda, too.feedback

Bob Lutz - General Motors

Somehow it's levitating. Elon Musk is the greatest salesman in the world. He paints this vision of an unlimited future, aided and abetted by some analysts. It's like Elon Musk has been beamed down from another planet to show us mortals how to run a company.feedback

Bob Lutz - General Motors

Their upside on pricing is limited. Everybody else sells electric vehicles at a loss. The puts a ceiling on your possible pricing. It's a constant cash drag. They're highly dependent on federal government and state incentives for money. They have capital raises all the time. Mercedes, BWM, Volkswagen, GM, Audi and Porsche are all coming out with 300-mile [range] electric luxuries.feedback

David Whiston - Morningstar

Right now, nobody seems to care about balance-sheet risk. The market doesn't seem to be concerned about cash-flow risk. People are looking at the potential, and the old-fashioned analysis of fundamentals aren't seen as important.feedback

David Whiston - Morningstar

The market seems to be thrilled. The thinking seems to be that this could be the next Amazon or Apple, and people want to get in early.feedback

Alexander Potter - Piper Jaffray

We have driven a Tesla for seven months in preparation for this report, and after conducting investor meetings with the company last week, we're finally ready to take a stand. The multiple will likely exhibit sensitivity to Model 3 production headlines, and any setbacks might cause substantial volatility (a.k.a. buying opportunities).feedback

Matthew Stover - Susquehanna Financial

The market is willing to say I'm going to value you based on what I think your future potential is, and it could be off of what you think they could make selling cars, what they could make selling batteries, what they could make selling solar or what they could make as a mobility company. Everything is on the table, and it's all speculative.feedback

Bob Lutz - General Motors

This is the ultimate bubble, which is doomed to burst. Tesla cars are fine, but the business model is not.feedback

Alexander Potter - Piper Jaffray

Even with all the risks, we think growth investors can't afford to ignore this stock. Our model implies TSLA will miss its 500k production target in 2018, but with deliveries of 750k+ the following year, this hardly matters.feedback

Mark Reuss

No one is going to believe we are for real until we successfully go through a downturn, and go through it well. We have to prove it.feedback

Michelle Krebs - Auto Trader Group

They have no choice but to keep focusing on what makes money, and that's selling pickup trucks and S.U.V.s.feedback

Mark Reuss

We are spending money on the future, whether it is in mobility, autonomous vehicles, artificial intelligence or electrification. Years ago, G.M. was fixated on the next quarter or the next year – and not the next 10 years.feedback

Michelle Krebs - Auto Trader Group

Tesla is viewed as a high-tech start-up driven by lots of stock speculation, while G.M. is an old-line industrial business with lots of institutional investors.feedback

Bonny Simi - JetBlue Airways

Think of it as Tesla of the air. [Or] think of it as an electric bus in the air. It's that type of transformation. We're very excited about where this is going. It's still very early, of course. We now have a seat at the table at what we believe is going to be an amazing change.feedback

Bruce Greenwald

Is Tesla going to dominate its industry? That's the key question. When it comes to the global auto industry, no one ever has, and in all likelihood, no one ever will.feedback

Bruce Greenwald

It's nuts. Investors believe it's going to dominate a market that no company has ever dominated before.feedback

David Salguero

We are on track to begin manufacturing the Lucid Air in Casa Grande, Arizona, in the first half of 2019.feedback

Michael Harley - Kelley Blue Book

One could argue that Lucid, Faraday Future, Karma, Nio and all of the countless others aren't in this to turn profits. Most are simply trying to demonstrate viable electric vehicle technology that puts them in a position to be purchased by an automaker that needs to meet ZEV (Zero Emission Vehicle) regulations.feedback

Michael Harley - Kelley Blue Book

While each of those start-ups are run by individuals who don't shy from the spotlight, none of those companies are headed by a successful entrepreneur who is continuously challenging, and changing, the world like Elon Musk.feedback

Jeff Schuster - LMC Automotive

Tesla has a target on its back, not only from traditional automakers but also these start-ups. But it'll be a challenge. Tesla now has critical mass and funding.feedback

Jim Cramer

Tesla isn't worth more than Ford. It's just that there are institutions who are willing to pay more for Tesla's stock than for Ford's right now, and that's the key issue here.feedback

Jim Cramer

If any of Bioverativ's competitors seem like they're onto something, this stock could get pounded. We're entering an extended period where we could potentially get lots of good news about the competition, and no real, significant news about Bioverativ's own pipeline. That's not good. Those are the ones who buy Tesla stock every day and many other growth stocks that to you seem overvalued.feedback

Jeffrey Gundlach

With inflation falling in the months ahead, pressure for higher yields is reduced. The bear case will need another narrative because CPI (the consumer price index) will be back below 2 (percent). As a car company alone, Tesla is crazy high valuation. As a battery company - one that expands and innovates substantially - maybe the valuation can work.feedback

Jim Cramer

Since then, justifiably, the stock's been off to the races because that money and the sheer size of the Chinese investor gives the entrepreneurial CEO Elon Musk plenty of breathing room to reach his goal of producing 500,000 cars a year by the end of 2018.feedback

Jim Cramer

The bottom line is this: you need to stop being hung up on the valuation of individual stocks. Right now, Tesla and a bunch of other biotech, social, mobile and cloud stocks are being bid up furiously by these growth hounds. If they're right, they'll get even more money in and they'll keep buying their favorites, no doubt including Tesla.feedback

Jim Cramer

He's not deterred by the losses because he's thinking, Hey, judging by those revenues, there's relentless demand for what Tesla makes. As long as Tesla doesn't run out of money, it can keep making cars and charging a fortune for those cars, so eventually, it will make a killing. Emphasis on 'eventually.feedback

Jim Cramer

Not only that, but given how weak Ford's sales have been this year ... and how many incentives the automakers have had to offer to sell vehicles, it's entirely possible that we're in what's known as peak auto sales. If that's the case, then 2017 could be a down year for Ford. Those are the ones who buy Tesla stock every day and many other growth stocks that to you seem overvalued.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

Tesla is absurdly overvalued if based on the past, but that's irrelevant. A stock price represents risk-adjusted future cash flows.feedback

Eddy Elfenbein

This is where the future is going. All these metrics don't work. All these metrics would have been true a year or two ago, but Tesla has fought the shorts every way.feedback

Rich Ross - Evercore ISI

Regardless what you think about the valuation, this stock is not going to get beat by a spreadsheet. This is a great technical setup, and it's only gotten better here. We now have a very decisive breakout of that trading range; that gets us to $320 in the short term. Let's call it $280 on the high end, $180 on the low end, you tack $100 on top … that gets you to $380 over time. So, [for] Tesla, there's still food on the table here. I still like this stock. In fact, I like it even more on the breakout.feedback

Eddy Elfenbein

Tesla was burning through tremendous amounts of cash; now they have one of the largest companies in the world, the most valuable company in China backstopping them and giving them a foothold into the Chinese market. Tesla's an excellent buy right now.feedback

Andrew Stewart

It's almost like Tesla is positioned in people's minds as an energy storage company that happens to put most of its batteries on wheels.feedback

Adam Jonas - Morgan Stanley & Co. International

In our opinion, Tesla may be downplaying the role of the all-new hardware architecture of the Model 3 in terms of improved occupant and pedestrian safety to avoid cannibalization of demand of the other models (i.e. S and X) that do not have the new hardware architecture.feedback

Neil deGrasse Tyson

I really like Earth. So any space trip I take, I'm double checking that there's sufficient funds for me to return. Also, I'm not taking that trip until Elon Musk send his mother and brings her back alive. Then I'm good for it. Any demonstration of rocket reusability is a good thing. When we fly on a Boeing 747 across great distances, we don't throw it away and roll out a new one. Reusability is arguably the most fundamental feature of affordable expensive things.feedback

Jessica Caldwell - Edmunds.com

A worry on the horizon is the Trump administration's stance on the tax credits.feedback

Jessica Caldwell - Edmunds.com

Sales have been good for Tesla in the last three months, but the Model 3 will be their biggest challenge yet as I imagine most of their company resources are focused on that vehicle.feedback

Christian Hochfeld - Agora

The industry is at a crossroads. German car companies have had their heads in the sand. They cannot compete with companies like Tesla, or with China, which will determine the future markets for the car. The Chinese market is 23 million cars a year. In Germany it is 3-4 million.feedback

Todd Gordon

If the trade doesn't play out, no problem. We're not going to have max loss of premium; we can contain some of the capital that we've outlaid and salvage some of that premium.feedback

Todd Gordon

We look to be breaking a range in Tesla, and it looks like with this next leg up in the bull market, Tesla can get us done. Options markets are pricing a 68 percent chance that Tesla will be between $317 and $240 at the expiration of the [May options] we're looking at.feedback

Adam Jonas - Morgan Stanley & Co. International

Our work on used car value is focused on the technological obsolescence of the 250 million cars on US roads today – $2 trillion worth of cars. Tesla's cars can get better because they can learn. They put in that equipment so that the vehicle five years from now is much more superhuman and much better than the one that is just learning and watching right now. Our used car thesis is that in a five-year period, we are running scenarios of used car value being off by as much as 50 percent.feedback

Kevin Carter

If it weren't for Tesla, I don't think the state of the electric car market would be anywhere close to where it is. Everyone is working on the electric car now, and almost everyone's working on the self-driving car, but the actual hardware of it [is made primarily by] BYD, Tesla. Who knows how this plays out? There's lots of things getting stirred together in this pot, lots of players, lots of money.feedback

Brendan Ahern

In general, Tesla's done very well in China. There's a lot of effort in electric cars in China to help address the pollution issue.feedback

Adam Jonas - Morgan Stanley & Co. International

We think that Tesla is morphing into more of a transportation company using vehicle machines sold today as a funding strategy to become something much much bigger, not tapping into hundreds of thousands or millions of cars, but more billions, hundreds of billions of miles.feedback

Adam Jonas - Morgan Stanley & Co. International

Well, we think the electric cars for private use really are ... for human driving pleasure for wealthier individuals. That's why it's so important that in the shared model where you're not driving 10,000 miles a year, but 50 or 100 in a fleet operation, then the economics of electrification you can get that pay back period under three years. That's the game changer – shared.feedback

Adam Jonas - Morgan Stanley & Co. International

We think the Model 3 will feature hardware and software that provide a level of active safety that could significantly lead all other cars on sale today and could, if the company achieves its goal, be an order of magnitude (i.e. 10x) safer than the average car on the road. According to nearly every OEM we talk to, safety is the number 1 determinant of car purchases. Look for safety to be the 'ah-hah!' moment for this car due to launch this year.feedback

Adam Jonas - Morgan Stanley & Co. International

Vehicle safety is even getting more attention in social media and from regulators because of the spikes in fatalities, up over 20 percent in this country over the past two years. It seems like the only thing progressing faster than the pace of machine learning is the pace of human unlearning. We're getting dumber faster than the cars are getting smarter.feedback

Marco Smit

We have plenty of space to build such a factory, our two seaports (Delfzijl and Eemshaven) supply infrastructure, we are close to big markets like Germany. In the Netherlands Tesla can make profitable tax deals and most importantly for Tesla, we can supply green energy.feedback

Peter Rawlinson

Ultimately we can generate up to 2,000 new jobs directly and maybe five times that number indirectly as a consequence of our plant in that state. Because the electric powertrain is so compact … we're able to tease out more space within the car package to make it roomier on the inside, and much more comfortable and engaging an environment for passengers and driver alike.feedback

Fred Ligouri - Chevrolet

If you look back at any of the awards the car the won, look at some of the early customer enthusiasm around the car, look at the dealer enthusiasm around the car, Bolt EV is on track to bring a lot of new buyers not only to the Bolt EV nameplate, but also the Chevrolet family.feedback

Colin Langan - UBS

This is at the low end of the $1-2bn we expected and could imply another raise later if the Model 3 is delayed. If the launch is delayed (note the Model 3 beta prototype is not yet approved by the board), cash burn would be worse, putting them close to the $1bn cushion they need. Liquidity and cash burn remain key near-term risks, and investors may grow weary of continued raises as this is the second capital raise in a year.feedback

Genevieve Cullen

The program does what it was designed to do. It creates jobs, it promotes U.S. manufacturing and it helps build our lead in the global advanced technology race. Those are all things that this administration supports.feedback

Michelle Krebs - Auto Trader Group

It helped move them to the next step. It wouldn't be devastating for this to go away because it came into being at a very different time.feedback

Jim Cramer

I am concerned that Dorsey's a rich part-time CEO. He is also the CEO of Square, which is really pretty ridiculous when you consider how poorly Twitter is performing. Maybe his buy is much ado about nothing. Let's put it this way: neither man needed to buy. But with both, I want to wait and see because neither company's making money and there's a lot more that could go wrong with these two companies than the others we have gone over.feedback

Mike Cannon-Brookes - Atlassian

Someone's got to plug these things in, connect it to the grid, do the maintenance, plan the facility, do the economics, there's a lot of other pieces here that need to happen.feedback

Mike Cannon-Brookes - Atlassian

I don't know what the definition of 'politics sorted out' was, there wasn't really a plan there, but we've now had the various premiers and the prime minister talking to Elon on the phone talking about storage. I don't think it will be challenging to get the funds for at least one, if not more, large-scale battery installations.feedback

Jim Cramer

You'll notice that on January 5th, right as this rally began to heat up, we got exactly the kind of crossover Boroden's talking about: Facebook's five-day exponential moving average, the blue line, went above its 13-day exponential moving average, the red line. Since then, the stock's been red-hot, running more than 20 points. For Boroden, that's a classic sell signal, and if you'd followed it, you would've been able to get out of this stock when it was still in the $270s, roughly 20 bucks higher than where it is now.feedback

Jim Cramer

But every now and this methodology will guide you to a sustained bull run like we've had in Facebook and Apple, or you'll sidestep a sell-off like the one Tesla was getting hammered by, at least until today.feedback

Jay Weatherill

Today, SA takes hold of its energy future. We have a national electricity market which is failing not only SA but failing the nation. We want as much local content as possible. We also need to put in the balance the reputational effect of attracting an international player of the size of Elon Musk to SA. These are all things that we are going to balance.feedback

Jon McNeill - Tesla Motors

Even though we reduced part wait times, we continued to dig into the body shop complaints. What we found was astounding – cars sat at body shops for weeks and sometimes months before the body shops took action and, more often than not, the body shops blaming Tesla for parts delays were the very shops that hadn't even ordered parts or started the repair. We are applying brute force to this immediately.feedback

Oliver Yates

We have been talking with a number of large-scale battery providers about potential storage solutions, including in South Australia. To the extent Tesla is interested, we'll also talk with them.feedback

Roger Lanctot - Strategy Analytics

You have a lot of car companies trying to design cars to be better suited to automation, which means they're more attractive to hackers.feedback

Jim Cramer

Given that GM is selling its money-losing Opel division, I couldn't agree with Moreno more.feedback

Peter Carlsson - Tesla Motors

We are not competing with Tesla because they are not going to sell batteries, but we do share a very strong vision which is that it is hugely important to accelerate our society away from its addiction to fossil fuels.feedback

Peter Carlsson - Tesla Motors

I am very optimistic that we can attract both industrial investors as well as institutional investors. We hope to close the major investment in just over a year, but we have already begun talking to companies and institutions that could be leading players in the process.feedback

Paolo Cerruti

We are not going to fill the plant only with automotive. Not because we don't think it is possible, but we don't think it is a good idea to depend heavily on one vertical, and only one.feedback

Colin Langan - UBS

So for full adoption of EVs in the future, some consumers will need to rely on these networks.feedback

AJ Vandermeyden - Tesla Motors

Until somebody stands up, nothing is going to change. I'm an advocate of Tesla. I really do believe they are doing great things. That said, I can't turn a blind eye if there's something fundamentally wrong going on.feedback

David Tamberrino

We expect to see pressure on shares as we progress through the year, as cash burn intensifies and the ramp of Model 3 volumes proves to be slower and flatter than assumed in guidance/consensus.feedback

Jim Cramer

The stock would have been up today if it weren't for these comments. Musk is prepping you for a secondary though, and it sounds like the street will be very ready after that last home run off an offering. In true Elon Musk style, he didn't exactly put to bed the notion of merging Tesla and SpaceX. Given Musk's legion of fans, they would probably cheer if he combined cars and rockets, too.feedback

Colin Rusch - Oppenheimer Holdings

This is an incentive-driven story, and we have to look five, 10 years out. But at some point you have to come back to reality. Are you generating real returns on capital? The real story is about whether they will get the Model 3 out on time and what the leverage is.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

According to our financial plan, no capital needs to be raised for the Model 3 but we get very close to the edge. We're considering a number of options but I think it probably makes sense to raise capital to reduce risk.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

I think it makes sense to raise capital to reduce risk.feedback

Mark B. Spiegel - Stanphyl Capital Management

That growth story's over before the massive luxury electric competition arrives, which happens in like 12 to 18 months. Tesla is spending about $80,000 to build each car now. There is no way in the world it will be able to build and sell a Model 3 that starts at $35,000 without losing a ton of money on it.feedback

James Albertine - Consumer Edge Research

The vertical integration here is what GM and Ford were 100 years ago and why they worked 100 years ago. It's why the Model S is the Apple iPhone to everybody else's competitive dynamic here on the electric vehicle front.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

We also understand manufacturing a lot better than we did in the past. There are really only disadvantages for someone to want the UAW.feedback

Brian Johnson

The recent run-up in Tesla stock has less to do, in our view, with anything around the near-term financials, and more to do with the nearly superhero status of Elon Musk.feedback

Jack Nerad

I would think one thing a lot of people of might largely ignore is the leap it takes – and it is a big leap, across a gorge really – to go from being a specialty manufacturer of high end electrics to being a high volume seller. You have a lot of spinning plates. Actually building the car is not the most difficult of tricks you have to pull off.feedback

Mike Khouw

[Options prices have] gotten cheaper interestingly, and that's just because the stock hasn't done much on earnings lately. If you were to try to reach and press a bullish bet, wouldn't it make more sense to use the options and spend $2, $3 than reach out for the stock and pay $280?feedback

Mark Cuban

I'm willing to bet that these companies building new plants ... this will lead to fewer people being employed. People aren't going to have jobs. How does [Trump] deal with displaced workers?feedback

Dennis Williams

It's uncharacteristic of Elon to attack his employees without knowing the facts.feedback

Colin Langan - UBS

We struggle to understand the run-up, particular as Q4 deliveries missed, though positive spin on the Musk-Trump relationship, reconfirmed Model 3 launch timing, and expectations of new reveals (including more autonomous features) are likely factors. We remain cautious with expected accelerated cash burn ahead of the Model 3 launch … [and] negative earnings revisions with the inclusion of SCTY.feedback

Ronald Baron - Baron Capital

Forty percent of the electricity in the United states is used by single-family houses. If you put a [Tesla] car in the garage, that car uses 30 percent of the electricity of the house. In order to sell the [electric] cars you have to ... have an increase in power.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

Over time I think we will probably see a closer merger of biological intelligence and digital intelligence. It's mostly about the bandwidth, the speed of the connection between your brain and the digital version of yourself, particularly output. It's mostly about the bandwidth, the speed of the connection between your brain and the digital version of yourself, particularly output. Some high bandwidth interface to the brain will be something that helps achieve a symbiosis between human and machine intelligence and maybe solves the control problem and the usefulness problem.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

Tell me the story of your life and the decisions that you made along the way and why you made them and also tell me about some of the most difficult problems you worked on and how you solved them. People that really solved the problem, they know exactly how they solved it they know the little details.feedback

Jose Moran

A lot of workers believe we have a right for union representation and a right to represent ourselves and our own interest. We don't believe the company is doing that for us. A lot of people have been ... shaking my hand, congratulating me. Glad that someone spoke up. Tesla workers are fed up.feedback

Jose Moran

Employees "spend more time at work than at home.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

Our understanding is that this guy was paid by the UAW to join Tesla and agitate for a union. He doesn't really work for us, he works for the UAW. Tesla is the last car company left in California, because costs are so high. The UAW killed NUMMI and abandoned the workers at our Fremont plant in 2010. They have no leg to stand on. Total compensation is higher for a given level of seniority when factoring in stock grants.feedback

Jose Moran

Many of us have been talking about unionizing, and have reached out to the United Auto Workers for support... But at the same time, management actions are feeding workers' fears about speaking out. Recently, every worker was required to sign a confidentiality policy that threatens consequences if we exercise our right to speak out about wages and working conditions.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

Our understanding is that this guy was paid by the UAW to join Tesla and agitate for a union. He doesn't really work for us, he works for the UAW. Frankly, I find this attack to be morally outrageous. Tesla is the last car company left in California, because costs are so high.feedback

Ben Kallo - Robert W. Baird & Co.

We are buyers ahead of Q4 results. We expect updates on the Model 3 and Gigafactory production ramps on the call, which we believe will drive shares higher. We expect less focus on the SCTY acquisition, although there may be short-term noise as expectations are calibrated. We believe the Q4 report is another de-risking event, and recommend investors own shares.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

Many in America don't realize how proud they should be of the legal system. Not perfect, but nowhere is the cause of justice better served. At my request, the agenda for yesterday's White House meeting went from not mentioning the travel ban to having it be first and foremost. In addition, I again raised climate. I believe this is doing good, so will remain on council & keep at it. Doing otherwise would be wrong.feedback

Dmitri Dolgov - Google

This four-fold improvement reflects the significant work we've been doing to make our software and hardware more capable and mature. And because we're creating a self-driving car that can take you from door to door, almost all our time has been spent on complex urban or suburban streets. This has given us valuable experience sharing the road safely with pedestrians and cyclists, and practicing advanced maneuvers such as making unprotected left turns and traversing multi-lane intersections.feedback

Dave Zuby

We expect that the BMW engineers are working on improving the rear crash protection of the seats and look forward to testing those when they're available.feedback

Michael Ramsey

This is just more evidence of the gulf between Waymo and all other companies in terms of testing and execution of self-driving systems.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

Amortizing this capital cost over 20 years and adding daily operational costs gives a total of $20 USD plus operating costs per one-way ticket on the passenger Hyperloop.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

This may sound surprising coming from me, but I agree (that) Rex Tillerson has the potential to be an excellent Sec of State.feedback

Adam Jonas - Morgan Stanley & Co. International

To the extent the new administration prioritizes the creation of valuable, innovative high tech and manufacturing jobs, Tesla stands at the epicenter of that. That Trump would be relying on Musk as an adviser has come as quite a surprise to many people. I don't know what kind of multiplier you put on that, but it's a significant boost to the economy.feedback

Andrew Hughes - Credit Suisse Group

I want to believe that Trump won't kill solar. But there's still a lot of uncertainty. The big question: Will he take away the tax credits?feedback

Andrew Hughes - Credit Suisse Group

The jobs data is a compelling argument in favor of the tax credits.feedback

Dan Nathan

Options activity [Tuesday] was very short dated.feedback

Jim Cramer

That's lunacy. I am waiting for Netflix to get to 200 million viewers … If they can get to 200 million, then the stock is a bargain even up here at $138.feedback

Jim Cramer

Both Netflix and Tesla, like Amazon, require you to think outside the box of traditional fundamental analysis in order to accurately value their stocks.feedback

Bryan Thomas - National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

We are very concerned that drivers operating these vehicles have a good understanding of the capabilities and limitations of these vehicles.feedback

Kazuhiro Tsuga

We are deeply interested in Tesla's self-driving system. We are hoping to expand our collaboration by jointly developing devices for that, such as sensors.feedback

Jim Cramer

This stock deserves to be much higher, but the current management doesn't know how to unlock value. A lot of value was locked unfortunately by David Crane, the previous CEO who had a grand vision – not unlike [Tesla CEO Elon] Musk – had a grand vision for solar. But solar turned out to be not that great for any of these guys.feedback

Qu Lijian

I only considered BYD and BAIC. I definitely can't afford the 300,000-600,000 yuan price of a luxury-style Tesla or prDenza.feedback

Thomas Deser

Burning money as a result of the market and technology not being ready is unlikely to be rewarded by shareholders.feedback

Graham Evans - Evraz

Tesla doesn't really have anyone to answer to, they are independent. (But) I think that further out the big (automakers) are in a better position to capitalize because of their more extensive resources.feedback

Lisa Jerram - Navigant Research

Development is underway on these chargers so there isn't a leader at this point.feedback

Michael Cohen

From Brexit to Trump's election, polling models and analysts were frequently surprised in 2016 by political events that had seemed remote. We define a commodity 'black swan' as an extreme event or dynamic that market participants, including ourselves, are not currently pricing in. We assess several black swan threats to the supply, demand and transit of commodities that could potentially move markets in 2017.feedback

Michael Dempsey

I don't really know what they could release other than a fully autonomous car with 500-mile range. I think if they can show that they can manufacture a vehicle that's on par with Tesla at less than $100,000, then that would be enough. I don't know that it's possible.feedback

Ben Kallo - Robert W. Baird & Co.

We believe TSLA's energy storage business and growth opportunity is not currently reflected in share prices. We believe TSLA battery sales are accelerating, and we should see additional benefits from the battery production ramp coinciding with the launch of the Model 3. We are highlighting TSLA as our best pick for 2017.feedback

Frank van Hoesel

But then the car already was almost stopped. The car was quicker than I was.feedback

Frank van Hoesel

I feel pretty safe knowing that the car stopped for us. He's part of the reason that our car stopped, so…. Well not part of the reason – he's the reason.feedback

Kim Pil-soo

The rule is meaningless. We have kept telling the government they should remove it.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

Ironically, if all incentives and subsidies were removed for Tesla, Tesla's competitive position would increase, not decrease. We do believe there should be government incentives for electric vehicles, but we believe they should be there for the good of the industry and to accelerate the advent of sustainable transport – not because Tesla needs them.feedback

Annette Winkler

I don't think people are choosing electric cars only because of subsidies.feedback

David Reichmuth - Union of Concerned Scientists

The brief answer is that we don't know what will occur with a Trump administration and electric vehicles.feedback

Lyndon Rive

It reinforces to any policymaker or regulator that when you're making the rules, consider that the voters voted for competition and energy choice.feedback

Don Hall

Look at the many other industries that have been attacked and have changed dramatically. Our industry is next. It's on the hit list. But we can do something about it.feedback

Sota Nagano

Another pillar of our business is leveraging this technology for our own line of cars, and applying it to third-party [clients].feedback

Sota Nagano

Every one of our customer has a different agenda … and all have different packaging and requirements in mind. It does not directly compete with what we have, [instead] it puts us in a very unique position.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

The apples-to-apples comparison compared to a regular roof will be at least at, and we believe slightly below the cost of a regular roof, and the electricity is just a bonus.feedback

Keith Ahsoon

We rely on that boat for everything, including importing diesel for the generators for all of our electricity. Once diesel gets low, we try to save it by using it only for mornings and afternoons. Water systems here also use pumps, everyone in the village uses and depends on that. It's hard to live not knowing what's going to happen. I remember growing up using candlelight.feedback

Keith Ahsoon

This is part of making history. This project will help lessen the carbon footprint of the world. Living on an island, you experience global warming firsthand. Beach erosions and other noticeable changes are a part of life here. It's a serious problem, and this project will hopefully set a good example for everyone else to follow.feedback

James Albertine - Consumer Edge Research

You can tick them off the list. They're further along and in a better cash-flow generating position than people think.feedback

Theodore O'Neill

This is going to be a tough one for the sell side. I'm an industrials and auto analyst who doesn't really know the solar market. It's [also] going to be an issue for the SCTY analysts who don't know the auto side of the business.feedback

Efraim Levy

There are often a lot of promises without delivery, at least on time.feedback

Efraim Levy

Elon Musk is clearly a force for change, but we think TSLA shareholders will see rewards delayed.feedback

Cory Honeyman - GTM Research

We will never see residential solar grow at the rate is has over the last four years.feedback

Angelo Zino - Piper Jaffray

It's great for SolarCity. It doesn't look as great for Tesla shareholders at this point.feedback

Colin Rusch - Oppenheimer Holdings

Residential solar plays will see lower volumes on more challenging regulations/slower demand due to extended coal facility lifetimes.feedback

Colin Rusch - Oppenheimer Holdings

[Donald] Trump's surprise victory last night, in tandem with Republicans maintaining majority control of both houses of Congress, constitutes in our view a material negative for the majority of our stocks under coverage.feedback

Colin Rusch - Oppenheimer Holdings

We expect shares broadly to trade off today at higher magnitude than equity indices and believe the election outcome injects significant policy uncertainty into the growth outlook for multiple verticals, with solar/alternative transportation plays the most impacted.feedback

Jay Leno

Here's a guy building an American car in America using American labor and paying them a union wage – the whole bit. Why are you not rooting for it to be successful? I don't quite understand that.feedback

Jay Leno

We're becoming like the British. We like noble failures.feedback

Jay Leno

It's a tough business to get into. And the fact that Tesla is making a go of it – and quite successfully – I think is impressive. It should be applauded.feedback

Carlos Ghosn - Renault

But I think when you have a technology that brings so much benefit that I don't think people are going to drop off … after one problem.feedback

Tasha Keeney - Ark

(Electric vehicles) are the way forward. Tesla is in a really good position with 30 percent of the market. We don't see that changing.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

I think the timing is just right, if not, I mean frankly, we may be a little late. I wouldn't say that we're early. It is really an accident of history that the companies are even separate.feedback

James Albertine - Consumer Edge Research

The why now, the why use Tesla equity if you do believe, in fact, it's incredibly discounted to the opportunity in the long term, that argues that you are paying even more for SolarCity.feedback

James Albertine - Consumer Edge Research

It is such a long-tailed story in terms of consumer adoption, we see a hard time sort of arguing for the payback here in the near term and many, many investors … sort of need that confidence in order to invest today.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

We are going to do hundreds – if not thousands – of deals of that size and bigger. Are we going to run them all through the independent committee?feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

It was getting clunkier and clunkier to do these joint deals. It took us months to vet that through our independent board members of both companies, and confirm that it was an arm's-length transaction, and it was just very unwieldy.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

You really need product integration. You want the solar panels and the batteries to work seamlessly.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

If you have solar panels, batteries and electric cars, you have a complete solution to a sustainable energy future ... it's just critical that all three pieces are there.feedback

Ronald Baron - Baron Capital

I think in this investment from here in the next 15 years, we can make 30 to 50 times our money.feedback

Ronald Baron - Baron Capital

[But] it's risky. Initially they have to prove the concept; then they got to prove they can make them; [and] they got to prove they can make them profitably.feedback

Ronald Baron - Baron Capital

With Tesla, nobody wants you to succeed except for the people who buy their product. The car dealers don't want you to succeed because the [Tesla] cars don't need service. The unions don't want you to succeed because Tesla is remaking the way you make cars.feedback

Ronald Baron - Baron Capital

That represents 1.5 percent of our assets. The stock was $33 when we started to invest.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

I don't think this is the finest moment in our democracy. I feel stronger probably about the fact that he's not the right guy. He doesn't seem to have the sort of character that reflects well on the United States.feedback

Jay Leno

First, you had anti-lock brakes, then you had lane departure warning lights. It's just another thing to protect you, that's all.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

It consists of a really appealing solar roof, then combine that with storage and with electric cars, it's an obvious three-part solution. We want it to look better, last longer, provide better insulation and costs less all things considered than a conventional roof.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

The goal is to make, to have electric, you know, solar roofs that look better than a normal roof, generate electricity, last longer, better insulation and actually have cost and installed cost that is less than a normal roof plus the cost for electricity. This is sort of the integrated future. An electric car, a Powerwall and a solar roof. The key is it needs to be beautiful, affordable and seamlessly integrated.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

Sometimes the solar roof is positioned as a competitor to utilities, but we are actually going to need utility power to increase, and we are going to need local power generation. Because if you transition all energy to electric, that roughly triples the amount of electricity that is needed. So you need about a third for transport, about a third for heating and about a third for what we currently use as electricity.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

I want to make sure people appreciate that the solution is both local power generation and utility power generation, it is not one or the other.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

If you have a solar roof, and a battery pack in your house, and an electric car, that is something that scales worldwide. You can solve the whole energy equation with that.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

The whole purpose of Tesla is to accelerate the advent of sustainable energy.feedback

Stacey Gilbert - Susquehanna

There is no real directional sentiment and investors seem to be less interested in the former big movers like Twitter, Tesla and Apple.feedback

John Fichthorn

It's a Tesla quarter, right. That free clash flow is not free cash flow you can take to the bank. They extended their payables by over 600 million dollars. They worked out some inventory, they dropped their CapEx dramatically. That was a one quarter blip.feedback

Ryan Brinkman - JPMorgan Chase & Co.

In all, while 3Q was a better quarter, we would characterize it as only modestly better.feedback

Colin Rusch - Oppenheimer Holdings

We expect bulls and bears to see support for their theses in this quarter's report.feedback

Ryan Brinkman - JPMorgan Chase & Co.

We feel the difference clearly relates more to the change in accounting than it does to [average selling prices].feedback

Ryan Brinkman - JPMorgan Chase & Co.

A good quarter – but not as good as it looks; We remain cautious [on Tesla]. Tesla reported 3Q16 earnings yesterday that at first glance appear to represent a very strong beat to consensus and JPM estimates across all metrics. However, we see one reason why the 3Q16 earnings report is not as good as it looks, and another reason why it might not be as good as it looks.feedback

Jeffrey Osborne - Cowen and Company

Management asserted that it would not need to raise cash, but our model forecasts Tesla ending 2018 with $575-million, which we think is too close for comfort.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

Things are looking good. It's not to say there could be some darkness ahead ... (but) it's overall looking quite promising.feedback

Brian Johnson

The positive optics in this print ... and likely lower-than-expected SCTY cash drain on Tesla may help improve investor sentiment, and therefore improve the chances of SCTY merger approval.feedback

Efraim Levy

The bulk of 2016's capital spending will occur in the fourth quarter, which likely leaves 2016 cash flow negative and Tesla needing capital market infusion in 2017. It was a kitchen sink effort to get the third quarter to look good ahead of the deal vote.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

This would be something that would be a significant offset on the cost of ownership of a car and then a revenue generator for Tesla as well; obviously, the majority of the economics would go to the owner of the car. It's not Tesla versus Uber. It's the people versus Uber.feedback

Dan Nathan

This level down here at $200 that it's kind of been holding on here – it really has to hold here.feedback

Dan Nathan

And they need to see some traction there – that's the future of the company.feedback

Bob Lutz - General Motors

This is a problem that volume can't fix because if you are in a variable loss, that is you're not recovering labor and materials in your sale price, then doing twice as many or three times as many or four times as many doesn't help. The losses just get bigger and bigger.feedback

Bob Lutz - General Motors

Just like Steve Jobs was worshipped at Apple (AAPL), it's the same way with [Tesla CEO] Elon Musk, who is seen as this new visionary god who promises this fantasmagorical future and utopia of profitability and volume. The only trouble is Steve Jobs delivered and Elon, god bless him, hasn't delivered a thing.feedback

Jake Fisher - General Motors

When you get down to the basics of it – the electric motor, the lithium ion battery, these things that Tesla will have some time to perfect – there is a good chance that the Model 3 will be a reliable vehicle.feedback

Jake Fisher - General Motors

What seems to hurt Tesla is just this obsession with adding these surprise and delight features.feedback

Jake Fisher - General Motors

In terms of any new or redesigned vehicles, we often see a tumble on reliability.feedback

Jake Fisher - General Motors

If you look at the top three it is Toyotta and Lexus, no surprise there. But above any of the Japanese automakers – above Honda, above Subaru – we see Buick, and that is a big deal.feedback

Jake Fisher - General Motors

The Model X out of the gate is very problematic. A lot of the problems have to do with the complex doors. The falcon wing doors are kind of an accident waiting to happen.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

With the latter, you can build out a huge amount of pressurized space for industrial operations and leave the glass domes for green living space.feedback

Brian Johnson

While we think ride-sharing/hailing is the future of mass-market mobility, we have some financial concerns with the idea of a [carmaker]-owned fleet.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

You will also be able to add your car to the Tesla shared fleet just by tapping a button on the Tesla phone app and have it generate income for you while you're at work or on vacation, significantly offsetting and at times potentially exceeding the monthly loan or lease cost.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

This dramatically lowers the true cost of ownership to the point where almost anyone could own a Tesla. Since most cars are only in use by their owner for 5 percent to 10 percent of the day, the fundamental economic utility of a true self-driving car is likely to be several times that of a car which is not.feedback

David Kelly - JPMorgan Chase & Co.

I think it is a good goal, I think it is an ambitious goal. But I don't know if it is a realistic goal.feedback

David Kelly - JPMorgan Chase & Co.

We have seen this over and over again that government and government regulation does not move as quickly as innovation in the technology space.feedback

David Kelly - JPMorgan Chase & Co.

He is really pushing to be first, and this is a situation where is is more important to get it right than it is to get it first.feedback

Ben Kallo - Robert W. Baird & Co.

In our opinion, TSLA has the leading autopilot system on the road. We believe TSLA has the most autopilot miles, the most data, and improved hardware necessary to maintain its status as the best autopilot system.feedback

Vijay Rakesh - Mizuho Securities

Tesla's Elon Musk announcing a future road map, noting Tesla car's going forward will use NVDA's Titan GPU away from the MBLY.feedback

Brian Johnson

Selling a vehicle with the latest and greatest hardware, but an unproven self-driving software package is a risky strategy.feedback

Sebastian Thrun

Lidars are becoming very inexpensive, and they will always add an additional safety layer. So in these early days of self-driving, I wonder why anyone wouldn't want to use lidars for added safety.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

It'll take us some time into the future to complete validation of the software, and obviously get through required regulatory approval. But the important thing is that the cars are ready to be made autonomous, at a safety level of at least twice that of a person, or maybe better. I think it's quite unexpected by a lot of people that it's happening right now.feedback

Brian Johnson

We think we are at a point where the market really isn't as hypnotized by these endless product announcements and is going to look more to other things. I think there is enough moving parts in the earnings that there could be parts of it that could surprise to the upside.feedback

Brian Johnson

Short term, we could see some upside with this … slew of product announcements coming over the next several weeks.feedback

Bill Harrison

This is a conceptual plan, this gives them flexibility in the future if they need to move things around as they get closer to rolling out the Model 3.feedback

Bill Harrison

We are really excited. Tesla has been expanding in Fremont over the last few years, and we think the submission of this plan solidifies their investment in Fremont. But it also shows people that we can still manufacture in California.feedback

John Leonard

But maybe it's kind of like a decentralized space race. Like Sputnik, but between the traditional car companies and their suppliers versus tech companies and their startups.feedback

Robert Murray

And by the way, you could close down every coal-fired plant in the United States today and you would not affect the temperature of the Earth at all.feedback

Colin Rusch - Oppenheimer Holdings

We have seen them do some asset-backed financing at SolarCity, as well as with Tesla's inventories, and so we think they are going to continue to do that, along with expanding the lease program with the Model S and Model X. And so as we go forward that is going to ease their cash needs, but they will need to raise capital.feedback

Colin Rusch - Oppenheimer Holdings

Typically with a bigger product, they would do a big media prep, and plenty of lead time to make sure there was enough attention focused on a major announcement.feedback

Colin Rusch - Oppenheimer Holdings

I think there would be prudence to raise capital sooner. For a ramp like this that's so aggressive and the ambitions of this organization, having an extra cash cushion makes an awful lot of sense to us.feedback

Robert Murray

Just as the government is supporting through the people's taxes windmills and solar panels, they need to support the clean coal technology … We need a level playing field.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

Tesla product unveiling on the 17th (unexpected by most), followed by Tesla/SolarCity on the 28th.feedback

Sam Altman

Any version without a merge will have conflict: we enslave the AI or it enslaves us. The full-on-crazy version of the merge is we get our brains uploaded into the cloud. We need to level up humans, because our descendants will either conquer the galaxy or extinguish consciousness in the universe forever.feedback

Matt Rendall - Clearpath Robotics

Factories operate like small indoor cities, complete with roads, traffic, intersections and pedestrians. Unlike city streets, a factory floor is a controlled environment, which makes it an ideal place to introduce self-driving vehicles at scale. Companies like Google, Tesla and Uber are still testing, whereas our self-driving vehicles are commercially available today.feedback

Andy Palmer

It's going to take a while, for sure. You've got a difficult circle to break, you need volume.feedback

Andy Palmer

The market has gone toward midsized cars where you don't have that pricing capability and as a consequence it's difficult to cover the costs.feedback

Dmitri Dolgov - Google

You get to 90 percent autonomy in 10 percent of the time and then spend 90 percent of your time on the last 10 percent.feedback

Charles Delaville

Our super-fast charging network allows for long distance travel in a fully electric vehicle. So we are proposing much more than just cars, in fact, we're proposing a whole ecosystem.feedback

Jürgen Stackmann - Volkswagen

Diesel is going to be a concept that will continue to evolve and develop for the years to come around the globe. There are a lot of markets that actually live on diesel, to have a fuel efficient drive for the future. Petrol is another concept that will evolve into the future. But again, electric, we believe, is going to be the centre pole of change in the future. And that will allow us to really change, not only our technology, but the concept of life with our customers.feedback

Alex Goy

As time's gone on, as more and more people are investing in this, they're realising that they're cheaper to run, sometimes they're cheaper to buy – they can be with government grants – and they can be a viable source of transport. And with the focus on the environment and the economy, it's becoming more and more important to brands to actually bring something out that sits in that market.feedback

Alex Goy

There will always be a space for a combustion engine. Whether or not it's brand-spanking new cars, or whether or not they're older ones, classics. Some of the cars that are around now may be seen as classic cars within our lifetime, which I find really weird. But they can coexist – electric, autonomous, and combustion, manual, you know, proper cars – they can all coexist. There'll always be space for everything on the road.feedback

Stephanie Brinley - IHS Automotive

Tesla found a niche and they've accomplished more than what many people expected.feedback

Aswatch Damodaran

The allure of Tesla and the danger of Tesla is Elon Musk. Elon Musk has made the company what it is today. I think he is the biggest weakness of the company. I think he's a great storyteller, but if you look at Tesla's lifetime, it always had trouble on execution. And I think the reality is, Elon Musk is not as interested in execution as he is in telling you the big story.feedback

Laurent Potdevin

I think digital really augments what we can do in the mall. Think about the brands that drive traffic in the mall. I mean you've got Louis Vuitton, Lululemon and the Tesla of this world and we are driving traffic. We've got very successful stores in the malls.feedback

Jake Fisher - General Motors

It is extremely important to get this right because Tesla is really alone in the ability to drive the vehicle with the people being able to take their hands off the wheel for an extended period of time.feedback

Gary Peters

This technology is moving so rapidly that it is outpacing the public policy that is necessary to make sure we're doing this properly.feedback

Marta L. Tellado - Consumer Reports

Consumers need more than just guidelines. This new policy comes with a lot of bark, but not enough bite.feedback

Mark Rosekind

Our enforcement authority stands strong, and it will be used to its fullest effect as needed.feedback

Amnon Shashua - OrCam Technologies

[Autopilot] is not designed to cover all possible crash situations in a safe manner... No matter how you spin it, [Autopilot] is not designed for that. It is a driver assistance system and not a driverless system.feedback

Amnon Shashua - OrCam Technologies

In the long term, this is going to hurt the interests of the company and hurt the interests of an entire industry, if a company of our reputation will continue to be associated with this type of pushing the envelope in terms of safety.feedback

Alexis Georgeson - Tesla Motors

Because of the damage caused by the collision, the car was physically incapable of transmitting log data to our servers, and we therefore have no way of knowing whether or not Autopilot was engaged at the time of the crash.feedback

Jim Chanos - Kynikos Associates

This is the anti-Amazon. What made Amazon great ... is that they didn't need capital.feedback

Jim Chanos - Kynikos Associates

To burden your own balance sheet and cash flow statement to, in effect, bail out shareholders at SolarCity strikes us as just the height of folly.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

I wish we could have done it earlier. The perfect is the enemy of the good.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

Anything metallic or dense, the radar system we're confident will be able to detect that and initiate a braking event.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

We're making much more effective use of radar. It will be a dramatic improvement in the safety of the system done entirely through software.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

It's not about going from bad to good. Things are already good. I think it's about going from good to great.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

We really pushed hard on questioning all of those assumptions over the past few months.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

It was just a very hard problem. Nobody else could solve this.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

Perfect safety is really an impossible goal. They appear very happy with the changes. After careful consideration, we now believe it can be used as a primary control sensor without requiring the camera to confirm visual image recognition. The big problem in using radar to stop the car is avoiding false alarms.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

Perfect safety is really an impossible goal. It's about improving the probability of safety. There won't ever be zero fatalities, there won't ever be zero injuries.feedback

Craig Johnson - Customer Growth Partners

I would move on to other names that look more attractive, like Apple, for example.feedback

Erin Gibbs - S&P Global

Elon Musk loves to make these wonderful targets that are never, ever achieved. I'm surprised that investors aren't a little more frustrated.feedback

Craig Johnson - Customer Growth Partners

If you got to put it into a buy-sell-hold category, I am a hold. I would be a seller on a break below $180, because that's going to be a big change in sentiment toward the stock.feedback

Ramon Llamas

It's not like we live in a world where people's smartphones spontaneously combust.feedback

Michael Lord

It's a mandate for us to produce vehicles, but there is no mandate for customers to buy them.feedback

Michael Lord

It just takes time. Just as with hybrids, every generation is better the one that came before.feedback

Mary Nichols

I'm concerned. It's a very ambitious goal and would require -- if you look at where we are today and where we need to go -- a big change in what consumers are seeing and what they're buying.feedback

Erik Gordon

Tesla will need many, not-so-small capital infusions to stay on its development plan and more as it takes over Solar City, a virtual sinkhole for capital.feedback

Todd Gordon

We have technical support from two different trend lines right at about the $210 region. So if you like the fundamental story with Tesla, this technical setup offers a pretty good opportunity to be in on the long side.feedback

Todd Gordon

You could potentially risk $10 to $12 on this trade to make possibly a break out towards the range. As we scale back, that ultimate range breakout should be able to take you up towards that $300 mark.feedback

Carsten Breitfeld - Federal Maritime Commission

At the end of the day, I get the impression that the traditional car companies, not only BMW, will not really be able to follow the pace and do the big steps which will be needed. His decision to move.feedback

Alexander Hilliger von Thile - Mercedes-Benz

We do not want to have experts who understand everything, who sit somewhere and don't talk anybody.feedback

Caleb Zigas

They were mostly interested in the ways that our entrepreneurs brought their ideas to market, and how La Cocina, as an organization, supported that type of innovation.feedback

Walter Price - Allianz Global Investors

If they can come up with an electric car that would be priced reasonably and have many of the features and driver comforts that Tesla has for example, I think it would sell really well. The potential market is huge, there are hundreds of millions of cars sold at high prices.feedback

Karl Brauer

If [Musk] thinks he can sell incrementally more cars with incrementally better range and power, then that's an incremental improvement for the company. I think Tesla needs more than an incremental improvement these days.feedback

Karl Brauer

This isn't going to be big shift in sales but huge additional increase in productivity capability.feedback

Karl Brauer

If he can improve these energy densities and further range into that car, that's where we'll see a real benefit. It's really hard to conceive them hitting those kind of numbers in that kind of time frame...It's unprecedented even by mode
