Wooo, that's perfect timing

Considering the oncoming financial recession , no car manufacturer stock price should go up, so there may be a bubble and taking the profit is a good call.
Sure, a kind of recession but TSLA isn’t and never will be in a bubble because there are so many different aspects to it... for the next 10 years it might have a couple of pullbacks but up will be the general direction. Even now at 1,887 it’s worth buying 50.

"Never will be in a bubble"

Now that's some confidence right there! It's worth infinity bucks!

Sounds like bubble talk to me

I have always been fan of Intel but they need to give a respect where respect is due, in which case AMD deserves fanfare with its new 7nm chips that they have nailed. New saga begins and don’t be fooled by old overrated players, think fabless chipmakers instead
Stock rose 3.6% overnight with Intel looking to do a buyback.

Hoping we see a decent day today once the market opens.

I think Intel will back up to 70+ by the end of 2021 (hopefully sooner) when their product slump has ended and they are again technologically competitive in the CPU arena.

It really depends on how soon shareholders expect a return, Amazon is 26 years old & still has a PE of 126. Will people really wait 50-100 years to get a reasonable dividend, currently 0%, I suspect not only time will tell.

No doubt we will hear 'it's different this time'

it's a growth stock which pays no dividends. if people want dividends they can manufacture a dividend by selling the stock.

it's one of the biggest companies in the world and yet is one of the fastest growing companies in the world.

obviously PE is skewed given that amazon reinvests heavily to fund growth at this breakneck speed.

if you look at the operating cash flow of amazon, you'll see that the share price has closely tracked OCF.

It is. I made a lot out of TSLA so it's not like I just blub on about a bubble like you, I only invest in stocks I have a deep interest in and research by enthusiasm more than to capitalize from them, though I always profit in that state of mind.
And please clarify, isn't investing about gaining assets in the end or do you have the smart answer?

Warren Buffets no 1 rule of investing is 'don't lose money'.
Have you ever sold any Tesla? If so you can't believe your own hype.

Please explain as I have no idea what your point is with that question.

By the way TSLA is currently $1,929.84, heading for 2,000 possibly tonight or by the weekend... I feel so guilty.

You said you "made a lot on tesla". That is only true if you sold. Presumably you only sold if you think theres a chance its overvalued atm.

Re: Markets down - Invest now or wait further?

Apparently, the people who put down money for the original Roadster could buy shares for 17 USD in return.

One share of TSLA is now worth more than an ounce of gold ;-)

I guess is will still go up a bit for the next weeks until "Battery Day" - or as long as RobinHood-traders still have a few bucks to spend at least....

I have sold, I sold because I needed money, and made a profit, then later I bought more. Definitely not overvalued and I wouldn't sell now until after Battery Day no matter what. If you take all of what TESLA is about it's worth approx $3,000 a share.

AIf you really think that only reason someone would sell their stocks that they have made good profit on is because they think they are overvalued then I would say you need a bit of a dose of realism.

Sometimes people just want to take the profits and maybe re-invest in something else, or just need cash out and spend the money on other more important things.

That is true tbf. Although I would still question why you would sell that stock as opposed to another one if there was an urgent need for cash. Perhaps some people don't agonise over investing decisions in the way I do (and being quite a lot younger than most of the other investors on here seem to be, I don't have nearly as much floating around).

In any case, congrats to Hausamsee for his big gain.

Not every investor has the financial resources to leave multiple thousands in multiple stocks... or all of the other investments may not be as profitable yet. There are many variables and personal circumstances that go into how individuals make their investments decisions.

In the end a good profit is still worth taking at any point and provides the most value at the time you actually need it.

exactly. I bought MSFT when it was $50, sold when Trump got elected at $78 (later re-purchased at $112, boo.)

Am I happy about more than 50% profit? Of course. Could've been more? Of course. Either way, not losing money as WB and FMF have put it, is the key. Everything else is an added bonus.
