I would love to see the ex-wife's face as she sees net worth go from exuberant to living in mom's basement in less than a month.

I wonder of she is subject to the lock-out period?

"Idiocy" belong in there somewhere.    Gasoline packs about twenty times the energy, by weight, than workable batteries do.   Oh, and our electrical grid can't handle the load of charging electrical cars, not that we'd want it to.

Definitely did not see it dropping 17. I though the 'all star' trio of underwriters would defend 17 themselves, but i guess even they dont care about their IBD so much as they do about their trading desks making profit shorting the shit out of it

And then there is KKR.  With such outstanding performance of FIG and BX, why won't private equity shops go ipo?


Oh, and don't forget the China Ag Bank ipo today....

Wait a second! CNBS told me that this was a great deal, that this was a sign that the bull market was coming back, that this was cause for great optimism.

What a fucking joke.

$200K ?? you must of been confusing the different models .. oh wait.. still just one

actually they aren't selling the Roadster anymore, they are all in on the sedan, the Model S which will be around $50,000 (less whatever gov kickback you can find)


but most people on ZH only are in the market for guns, gold and zombie radar

Don't need the fancy radar.  If it is moving unannounced near your gold its a zombie and therefore subject to your guns.

"CNBS told me". LeBeau and Greenberg had a FRONT PAGE Tesla point-counterpoint the day b4 the IPO which greenberg won and Crimer himself said get in and get out . What syllable did you not understand turd.

Just another example of ZH group (lack of) think. As I recall everyone on CNBC from Greenberg to Pisani to Cramer said to sell TSLA. 

Unless this turd guy wants to be "cool" and rip on cnbc because TD does so, I don't get the point of this dumb a$$ comment...

Is it necessary to watch CNBS in order to understand that investing in a company that builds EV's with a price tag > 100k and with the range of a golf cart is idiocy? BTW, anyone with 'biggs' in his 'handle' needs to seek professional help.

Well, Cramer said to sell the IPO on the day it went public. So not everyone was pumping it that day.

man...  this chart brought nostalgia for the good ol' days of the dot-com IPOs...   the days of "honest" pumps-and-dumps and "IPO spinning" by the Wall St banks, the days with Henry Blodget and MAry Meeker, the days w/out HFT, without gold and s&p futures manipulation.... 

Bring Back The (honest) Crash of 2000-2003!!!!!!
