Why the fuck is Tesla so obscenely valuable?
They make pretty decent EVs, I give them that, but they're not anything special compared to the competition.
They don't make the fastest charging cars, the most efficient cars, their stuff is expensive compared to others.
Their lead in self-driving tech is questionable.

The vaportruck is still coming soon, despite competitors already shipping their trucks.

They barely make more EVs than the second biggest maker (VW), and will likely be overtaken in the Chinese market in a few years.

Their battery tech is about as good as their competition, 4680 is a meme, they're no closer on actual breakthroughs like solid state tech.

Their build qualiity and interiors are behind the competition.

All in all, considering the good thing things going for them, they make decent EVs, plus the meme magic of Daddy Musk, but I cannot imagine them being worth more than 1.5x VW or Toyota realistically.

Is there some actual reasoning behind this, this some HODL to the moon memery?

Ah and no retarded answers. like cherrypicking some obscure manufacturing tech like 'single piece castings', as rabid Tesloids usually do.

if you don't value something at the current price, you don't purchase it. whether you engage in theft or leave it be is up to you.

Could it have something to do with the fact that they manufacture most if not all of their own parts? Whereas others on that list outsource a great deal of their parts to outside manufacturers and are beholden to supply chain issues and price increases, shipping etc.

You are Tesla, owner or worse, a Musk fan.

Every time Musk says something retarded, Tesla's stock price goes up because the internet is filled with a weird subset of finance nerds who are obsessed with tech despite being wholly ignorant of how it actually works, and they think the guy is the second coming.
>>
>>25473504
Because the stock market is just a ploy to make the rich richer, and these anomalies just further prove the case.

Not going to read all that. But market cap is a measure of sentiment and doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with actual fundamentals.

Because Tesla is not a car company.
They are a military contractor for the deep state. The sell them their surveillance data and help with "car accidents" of russian and chinese oligarchs.

Investments that are seen as having a future of rising further often shoot up in price far beyond their current value, in anticipation of their future value.

Tesla makes 1/10th as much car as Toyota, but generated more profit than Toyota last quarter.

Tesla will grow to 20x its size in the next 10 years
Toyota will shrink by 1/2.

This is just Tesla's car business. If Tesla peaks out their car business, then they can expand their work on FSD/autonomy. If that peaks, they can expand on battery. If that peaks, solar. If that peaks, utility power. If that peaks, subscription model. If that peaks, robotics. If that peaks, etc.

So they've got 100x more growth venue.

Mark mark words, Tesla will become the most valuable company in the world by 2-3x factor in the next 10 years.
>>
>>25473504
Because it's a tech company not an auto company, and tech is extremely overvalued. If you have been paying attention to the stock market, tech has been signaling that it will do a .com collapse soon
>>
>>25473695
They're valued as a car company on growth projection right now. Software/tech isn't accounted for.
>>
>>25473718
To explain this, lets say Tesla wants to grow to 20% of car market. With ~30% profit margin, that's 6x more profit margin than car industry right now.

20% x 6 = 120% of car industry value. Hence that's the value of their shares.

If they unlock the software (FSD/autonomy) potential, the value will double or triple easily. Easily making Tesla a $3 trillion dollar company. If their solar/battery/utility scales up further, thats another recurring venue for cash. So Tesla has lots thats unaccounted for.

Prices are just ~8-10 years ahead of stock right now, excluding the software/non-car business side of things.
>>
>>25473504
>Why the fuck is Tesla so obscenely valuable?
They aren't. Things like market cap aren't accurate evaluations for the value of a company. This is merely perceived value. Its on par with Gamestop meme stocks. The company's value has fluctuated billions of dollars over a year despite the company not actually changing in any appreciable way.

Do you even hear yourself? This is why the stock is so inflated.
>>
>>25473825
Meh, Musk has been right about everything for the last 20 years. Thats why he's the richest person on earth, most successful person on earth, and the running some of the most innovative companies on earth.

Betting against Musk has never paid off, and I don't see that paying off for the next 10 years either.

I'll consider your opinion worthy of consideration if you have more skin in the game, but you probably don't. Only losers hold loser mentality.

And what exactly has he been right about? His whole company has been propped up by lies. He's basically the Trump of the auto world. Think about that for a moment.

If people keep pumping billions of dollars into your company based on your promises, EVENTUALLY you're gonna be able to succeed in a subset of said promises. Doesn't mean that he's any better than anybody else: he's just a better salesman. This goes for SpaceX as well. Boring company is a nothing.

Now that other companies have started investing the R&D, they're absolutely eclipsing Tesla in every regard.

You're only digging yourself deeper and deeper into conspiracy.

Wall street doesn't give a fuck about about the physical, just hypothetical value that can be leveraged for more debt, and inflate the stock price higher than reddit day traders pumped GME. Gamestop is objectively a poor performing company but because there's so many big names and NPCs in the stock market, if enough of them buy, then the ether value skyrockets just like Tesla. Yet I'm not buying from gamestop, there's no roadster, no semi, they can't get their full auto driving software authorized by the USA and are reliant on electricity infrastructure owned by criminals like PG&E.

They sell carbon credit to other car manufacturers you literal retards, thats where most of Tesla's income is coming from

are you clinically diagnosed? Your argument for Tesla is the same that could be made for GME as >>25473935 said. That bubble may burst, or it may inflate long enough to be self-fulfilling. Doesn't make it not a bubble.

>>25473504
>They don't make the fastest charging cars
It doesn't matter how fast your cars charge if the owners can't charge them reliably and conveniently. Electrify America is the closest thing non-Tesla owners have and it's still far behind Tesla Supercharging in those two key areas.

>the most efficient cars
They're objectively the most efficient in their class. The Model Y gets around 130 MPGe. The vast majority of the rest of the competition including the Volkswagen ID.4 and Ford Mustang Mach-E hovers around the 90 MPGe mark or worse. The Porsche Taycan is one of the worst in terms of energy efficiency, second only to the GMC Hummer EV. The closest competitors to Tesla when it comes to efficiency are Hyundai and Kia and even then they still lag behind.

>their stuff is expensive compared to others.
I'd argue they're as cheap or cheaper than the competition. The Porsche Taycan, Lucid Air, and Mercedes EQS are tens of thousands of dollars more than the Tesla Model S. The BMW i4, Audi E-Tron, and Jaguar I-Pace are more expensive than the Tesla Model 3 or Model Y.

>Their lead in self-driving tech is questionable.
Nothing questionable about it. Just watch the YouTube channel AI DRIVR. There is absolutely no other system in any other car that you as a part of the general public can buy right now that is better.
>>
>>25474028
You only believe "Tesla stock so high" because you refuse to believe the reality that Tesla is successful and will be even more succcessful in the future.

Its just your denial thats showing up. You didn't magically think of "Tesla stock so high". You only did so because you believe Tesla shouldn't be so high. Otherwise, you'd be wondering why GM stock so high, Ford stock so high, etc. None of that enters your mind because you believe those are real companies. While you continue to believe in delusions/conspiracy theories about Tesla.

Thats your own suffering/hell you've created in your mind.

When your stock price is directly linked to the meme posts your CEO makes on twitter, your stock is not valued based on quantifiable metrics. Other brands are. Your concession is once again noted.
>>
>>25474442
You have a belief about Tesla stock being fake. The reality is, Tesla stock is where investors think it should be at.

You're just digging deeper into conspiracy thinking. Really.
>>
>>25474450
>where they think it should be at
I never disputed this. I'm disputing the idea that their valuation is based in reality as most other stocks are. See again GME for one of the most stark examples of how the true value of something means very little in the meme market. Tesla is very much a product of the meme market, not their ideas/tech/business plan (outside the plan of "let's be a meme").

Still no evidence to the contrary, I see. Let me just add this to your stack of concessions.
>>
>>25474473
GME is a gamed stock, literally and figuratively, in a positive direction.

Tesla was a gamed stock as well, but in a negative direction. Tesla's stock is where its at because shortsellers "funded" the stock and Tesla as they kept on losing for decades on end. Tesla was kept afloat because people really thought Tesla was fake/fraud/gonna bankrupt any day now/etc. So when their predictions, and now yours, didn't come true, they lost money. Tesla gained that money. They used that money to print out 3 new factories worth couple billions each for free. Now they're printing out million+ cars a year, and growing at the rate of 60-80% a year in both revenue and product, while still having a sky high profit margin.

Tesla has won. Conspiracy thinkers lost.
>>
>>25473504
Because Elon keeps teasing game-changing vehicles we'll never see and dumb ass tech tards keep believing it. Once this tech company-esque promises-you-can't-keep BS gets called, the house of cards will fall.

I would not recommend buying Tesla stock right now and if you have any, I'd sell honestly. It may go up some more, but before too much longer it will undoubtedly collapse.

In fact, I think Elon's Twitter purchase is more about getting his money the fuck out of Tesla more than any memes about free speech or making trannies seethe.
>>
>>25473504
>Why the fuck is Tesla so obscenely valuable?
Tesla is not saddled with social welfare Unions and the huge long term debts that unions create.

Biden and the democrats anger at Tesla lies in part with Tesla refusing to unionize in order to implement nearly mandatory diversity that the unions require and the other anti-racism requrement projects required with union contracts and worker strikes.
>>
>>25473504
>Why the fuck is Tesla so obscenely valuable?

Isn't the real question "Why isn't GM more valuable?" GM used to be far bigger than anyone else, yet they continued to shrink and fall. If diversity is strength and unions are strength, why did they shrink with all of those unbeatable strengths?

>Why are tesla big
1. They have a fuckton of government bennies from around the world
2. Every US senator and congressman has dumped a ton of money into TSLA stock.
3. The electric car meme has caught on with the normalfags(It's normalfag, not normie. Normie is normalfag-speak for normalfag) and the normalfags think they invented the electric car, so obviously, they have to be the best!!! This is compounded by makers like Nissan building one out of a versa, ford building one out of an escape, and other automakers making their electric cars "X, BUT ELECTRIC!!!"
4. Cult of personality that evolved around the company by low-t bugmen that also helps pump the stock and keeps the company's reputation online nearly spotless
5. China cannot get enough of tesla because eventhough they're made by people locked in the factory like fucking slaves, the chinsects view tesla as a "western" brand which means you're someone who's made it if you can afford to drive something foreign. This is the same reason buick is one of the biggest brands in covidland and GM decided to axe saturn and pontiac instead of buick.
