    Betting on one stock going up or down is very risky. I can predict Tesla stock will go up. I can also predict Tesla stock will go down. I cannot predict when and by how much. Either buy and hold, or don't mess with this at all. Didn't anyone learn their lesson during dot bomb, the financial crisis, 1929?

    I buy and hold. Big believer in DRiPs. Don't hold any Tesla stock. The quickest route to poverty is day trading and shorting stocks. Sure, some people make a killing, but people holding a short position have a strong incentive to trash a stock at every opportunity. If Tesla come's within 70% of making its numbers shorts are going to bleed out. It has a real prestige product in a dynamic market with a bright future.

    I too do not hold any Tesla stock myself (might have some buried in some mutual funds). I'll let the wall street sharks et each other alive. The time to buy Tesla was after their IPO and before the model S release. If it were to take a major tumble when model 3 rolls out, I think it's still too risky to jump in. Model S and X sales still stall as people are awaiting the less expensive option, they will be hemmoraging more than ever, and any hiccup, they could go under or require a buyout. I'm not wishing doom and gloom on Tesla, quite the opposite, I hope they make it. But the success of the presales of the model 3 upped the ante in a very major way.

    I've been on the A-team in a non-union shop. I worked Christmas more than once. My record for contiguous hours worked is 22.5. Our attitude was that the machines/cars/whatever had to go out on a certain day and we had to get it done and done right.

    So I'm very familiar with what's going on. But it was always voluntary for us. You cannot make these things mandatory. That part disturbs me.

    I don't think it's fair to call conspiracy. If there's a problem it needs to be outed. I was happy to read they brought in ergonomics experts and a third shift. Things may actually be improving.
