I used to find the debate between Tesla critics (most notably short sellers) and Tesla fans as somewhat interesting but mostly straightforward. Tesla critics somehow thought that Tesla inherently couldn’t make profits on its products. Tesla fans thought and explained how Tesla could. Tesla critics thought Tesla couldn’t learn the art and skill of efficient, smooth mass production. Tesla fans noted many times that this isn’t rocket science (ahem). Tesla critics thought major automakers would come out with electric vehicles superior to what Tesla offered and would thus kill the company. Tesla...

3 Myths About Millennials & Electric Cars Are Costing Apartment Complex Owners Money | CleanTechnica

3 Myths About Millennials & Electric Cars Are Costing Apartment Complex Owners Money | CleanTechnica

by  Originally published on .Unless you are a millennial, everything you think you know about the generation born between 1981 and 1996 is probably wrong. That’s especially true if you own or manage a multi-family apartment property. Being a Gen Xer myself, I admit I believed some of the stereotypes too.

What I found out surprised me. Many of the generalizations about millennials are so...

For a quick overview of the company’s financials, check the source — Tesla’s official Q4 and FY2019 update. Meanwhile, I was furiously taking notes during the company’s conference call, which had engaging questions from retail investors (via the innovative SAY.com platform), and assorted Wall Street analysts. Off-the-cuff remarks on the call often provide investors with the juiciest details. And this call didn’t disappoint. In light of this, I’ve compiled some of my favorite...
