Just saw this comment. It is a really good analysis why the stock price moves up and down.
You guys just don’t get the truth. It is the Market Maker who is jacking up the price to sell to naive retailer investor. The short-term fluctuation of the stock price has absolute no relationship with the health of the company.
While Tesla is selling more cars, it’s model is absolutely broken. There are too many competitors. It’s price is absolutely too high. That’s one company that will never turn a dime, except fattening Elon Musk’s wallet and the Market Maker.
The stock is just like any other merchandise. If there is no new issue or repurchase. The price should theoretically never change. The fluctuation of the price is completely due to the Market Maker adjusting the price to maximize his/her return-on-investment. All the retail investors are just like cattles and sheeps, ready to be slaughtered.
Ha ha ha. You guys are the fooooooooooools.
By the Motley Fool is also a business. It is paid by the investment bankers and market makers to fool the retail investors.
Have fun investing….
In 2009, I have travelled extensively. For 2 1/2 month, I studied Spanish in Spain. During that time, I also visited Morocco. After coming home, we (my parents, brother, I, and our dog) had a big road-trip and visited several western states. Along the way, we visited New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, as Wyoming. Although YellowStone N.P. was quite famous, as for me, the Garden of Gods in Boulder and Vail, Colorado, and the Arch National Park were the top scenic locations. Then, I decided to refresh my French knowledge. Where else to learn a language than physically present in that country. It was October and November, I studied French in Bordeaux and Nice. Right after my course, my parents came to visit France. Together, we rented a car and visited Mont St. Michel and castles in the Loire Valley. Yes, having some rudimentary French really helped us during the travel, e.g. booking hotels, ordering meals in the restaurant, … And, it definitely aided me in understanding the French history and culture.
With Christmas coming soon, I decided to pull my photos together and create a greeting card for my friends. So, here it is. There are 2 versions. One with my western-state trip. And, the one does not.
This Saturday, I visited the BikeMart in Richardson, TX. Apparently, there is an active bicycling community right here in DFW area. If you watch Tour de France, you know that Lance Armstrong was the Champion of the Tour de France from 1999 – 2005. And, he is a Richardson native. Now, he lives in Austin, TX.
When I was in the BikeMart, I talked with some employees. And, they told me the story between Jim Hoyt (BikeMart owner) and Lance Armstrong. About 10 – 15 years ago, when Lance was getting ready to become a professional bi-cycling athlete, he did not have a lot of money. And, the owner of BikeMart loaned Lance a good bike for racing. After Lance won the Tour de France, he gave Jim many souvenirs for display. On the wall, inside the store, there are many display of Lance’s Yellow Jerseys as well as several photos from the tour.
A good bike is quite expensive, some costs in $6,000 to $9,000. However, those bicycles are really light. I even weighted a $6,000 bike. It is only 15 pounds, about 6 1/2 kilos. It is made of space-age materials, e.g. Titanium, and is exceedingly strong. I also saw a mountain bike with liquid suspension system.
It is really a cool experience to look and feel (touch) one of those fancy bicycles. The store is in a shopping center at the corner of Campbell and Coit, in Richardson, TX. The website is http://bikemart.com
