if you think there will be major breakthroughs in battery technology(which Elon Musk is more than convinced there will be) that can lower the model s price point from almost $98,000 down to $45,000 then yes

If that's the case, going to college is similar to gambling too, because you never know how much you'll earn with your degree. So is buying airplane tickets, maybe the price will go down right after you bought them. My point is, every decision a person makes can be similar to gambling if viewed under the same light.
Not right,
It might be hard sometimes to get a good job even with a degree but you can definitely struggle for it and achieve it, you can have a slow business and market it and see results, you can have a store where ppl wouldn't enter and just renovate it to attract ppl to it, bottom line... in every business if there's anything that keeps you from making money you can actually "do" something to fix it and make it better,

Unlikely when you buy stocks you can do absolutely NOTHING that the stock should go up, you can try your best speculating guessing and assuming which one would go up but there's nothing you can actually do.

If you buy the stock you are betting on Musk and not on Tesla. Tesla has not actually made much money from selling the cars, they made money by selling carbon offsets to other car manufactures. This is not sustainable.

Musk may be brilliant, which is why the stock is at it's current price.

He's got the golden touch. Between him and Peter Thiel, I wonder whose hands are more golden...

If the Dem's stay in power, I am sure Tesla has a lot of stimulus money coming their way....

An inaccurate shot IMO. And yes, my stocks also went higher today.

Anyone have any opinions on BlackBerry (BBRY) now that they have an offer? Does it have a chance?

The fundamentals don't change just because there is a buyout offer. I doubt there well be a bidding war. Depending on the price and the buyout offer you may be able to arbitrage a bit there.

Im not a fan of that reasoning to buy something.

I read this earlier: Target Corp. Given a $64.00 Price Target by Deutsche Bank Analysts (TGT).

The stock I am looking at right now is CP (Canadian Pacific Railway) I read a price target of 155 on it and its trading in the low 120's today.
