          Elon Musk Now Worth $1.4 Billion      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
On Tuesday Elon Musk's net worth rose as Tesla's stock surged after he tweeted that he was thinking of taking the company private. With a $25.8 billion net worth, he's the world's 31st richest person. He's also Tesla's largest shareholder. The tweet was only 61 characters long, but it was powerful enough to make Tesla CEO Elon Musk $1.4 billion richer. Business Insider reports Musk could climb the ranking faster if investors decide Tesla is worth more than its current $58 billion market cap.

Drupal Europe

Reminder: Drupal Europe is coming up soon

Drupal Europe is coming up in less than 40 days! Drupal Europe will be the largest gathering of the Drupal community in Europe and is a reimagining of this important community event as both technical conference and family reunion. The Drupal Association engineering team will be attending to connect with the community, provide updates on Drupal.org, and listen to some of the incredible speakers who will be in attendance.

Join the community in Darmstadt, Germany, from September 10-14, 2018. Make sure to register, book your travel, and secure accommodation: http://drupaleurope.org/

We want your feedback on ideas for Drupal Core

The Drupal Association has proposed several initiatives for Drupal Core - but before they can be officially adopted they need feedback from stakeholders in the community (even if it's just a "+1") and to reach community RTBC. Here are the proposals:

Drupal.org Updates

Staff retreat

In July the Drupal Association gathered together in Portland Oregon for our bi-annual staff retreat. At these retreats we discuss the progress made in the last six months, and our prioritization as an organization going into the next six month period.

Hightech users of Drupal

Hightech industry page launched

Drupal is the CMS of choice for a variety of companies in the high tech space, including organizations like Redhat, Cisco, and Tesla. Whether it is used in a front-facing application, as a decoupled back-end, or for an internal intranet experts in hightech defer to Drupal's example for their needs.

We launched a new industry page featuring these stories from high tech in July.

Drupal.org API updated for security advisories

To improve the automated toolchains built by organizations and individuals in the community to watch for new security advisories, we've updated the Security Advisory API. One of these changes ensures that the full canonical identifier for each advisory is included in the API data, which is a small but valuable change for anyone monitoring the API for advisory information.

Social Media Sharing for Events News

The DrupalCon news feed now includes social media sharing icons, so that you can better promote DrupalCon news and announcements to your networks. Word of mouth has always been a critical part of Drupal's success - so we hope that as featured speakers are announced, early bird registration begins, or the schedule is published, you will help us get the word out!

DrupalCon Seattle is coming up from April 8-12 2019, and we're featuring some bold new changes to support a variety of audiences from our traditional core of those people who build Drupal, to marketers and content editors, and to the agency sales forces that sell Drupal to the world.

As always, we’d like to say thanks to all the volunteers who work with us, and to the Drupal Association Supporters, who make it possible for us to work on these projects. In particular we want to thank:

If you would like to support our work as an individual or an organization, consider becoming a member of the Drupal Association.

          Speculazione e trimestrali, ecco perché Musk vuole salutare Wall Street      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Elon Musk ha scelto Twitter per fare un annuncio: "Sto considerando la possibilità di rendere Tesla privata". Cioè di ritirarla da Wall Street. E ha fatto anche il prezzo: chi vorrà ricomprare una fetta della casa automobilistica e tenersela al riparo dalle fluttuazioni di borsa, dovrà mettere sul piatto 420 dollari per azioni. A questa cifra, Musk valuta Tesla 71,3 miliardi di dollari, 82 miliardi incluso il debito. Cioè con un premio del 20% all'ultima chiusura precedente alle parole del fondatore.

L'andamento del titolo

Musk è sempre divisivo: c'è chi indica la sua mossa come geniale e chi la declassa a pura sparata. Intanto però, dopo il tweet e la conferma ufficiale tramite una lettera ai dipendenti, il titolo ha reagito in modo vigoroso, con un rialzo del 9,83%. Merito anche delle voci, diffuse dal Financial times, dell'interessamento del Public Investment Fund (il fondo sovrano saudita) a rilevare una quota tra il 3 e il 5%. Ma quali sarebbero i vantaggi di avere Tesla fuori da Wall Street? Ed è davvero una strada percorribile?

I vantaggi

In una serie di tweet successivi a quello dell'annuncio, Musk ha spiegato che la volontà di privatizzare non deriva da disaccordi tra gli attuali azionisti. Anzi, ha affermato che si augura che tutti restino in Tesla anche in caso di addio (forse meglio dire arrivederci) alla borsa. Motivi di questa mossa a sorpresa sono stati chiariti nella lettera e, forse in modo ancor più incisivo, in un paio di cinguettii. Il fondatore della società ha parlato di "grande opportunità" e di un modo per evitare "distrazioni" imposte dalle fluttuazioni del titolo. Su Twitter ha scritto che essere una compagnia privata consentirebbe manovre "più agevoli e meno dirompenti". E porrebbe fine alla "propaganda negativa" degli short seller. Cioè di chi investe scommettendo sul ribasso di Tesla. Già in passato Musk se l'è presa con questa propaganda negativa. Anche se lui stesso ha utilizzato (in direzione opposta) la stessa arma. E anche se la lo scontro con gli speculatori è stato a volte mescolato con le legittime critiche degli analisti.

Muoversi in maniera più "agevole" significa soprattutto due cose. Primo: non preoccuparsi dell'accoglienza del mercato. Nel bene e nel male, al riparo da eccessivi entusiasmi e pessimismi (oltre che dalla speculazione). Secondo: ridurre i lacci imposti dalla quotazione, soprattutto in tema di comunicazione e trasparenza. Non vuole dire necessariamente che Tesla abbia qualcosa da nascondere. Vuol dire che potrà evitare di svelare, e quindi rincorrere, obiettivi di trimestre in trimestre (come nel caso delle Model 3 prodotte ogni settimana). Senza pagare in termini di capitalizzazione. In questo periodo all'ombra, Tesla potrebbe consolidarsi, superando questa fase di (auspicata) transizione, da nicchia a produttore di massa. E magare, quando sarà il momento, tornare a riscuotere con una nuova quotazione.

Le incognite sulle risorse

Il Financial Times si è mostrato critico. Non tanto per le intenzioni quanto per la fattibilità del progetto. Musk ha scritto (sempre su Twitter) di avere "garanzie finanziarie" e ha "confermato il supporto degli investitori". Il via libera non dipende tanto dai soldi (che ci sarebbero) ma "dal voto degli azionisti". Ma il quotidiano finanziario sostiene che solo "una manciata di investitori nel mondo" potrebbero reggere una spesa del genere.

Oltre ai grandi azionisti (T Rowe Price, Fidelity e Baillie Gifford detengono circa un quarto del capitale e Musk un altro 20%), ci sono fondi che non possono muoversi fuori dalla borsa. E saranno quindi costretti a vendere. A questi si aggiungerà chi non vorrà aderire. Questo farà lievitare la quantità di risorse che Musk dovrà raccogliere per l'operazione. Per il fondatore della compagnia, però, la manovra è possibile. E come esempio di successo cita Dell, il produttore di pc americano privatizzato nel 2013. Tuttavia, sottolinea il Financial Times, il quadro è molto diverso. Dell si è finanziato con un debito imponente, assicurato dai solidi flussi garantiti dalla vendita dei pc. Tesla, invece, continua a bruciare cassa. E le risorse che ha in questo momento sono, secondo molti analisti, insufficienti per garantire anche gli attuali piani di sviluppo (tra i quali la costruzione di un mega-impianto in Cina). Tradotto: servono molti soldi. E tra coloro che possono fornirli ci sono pochi grandi soci attuali e alcuni fondi sovrani. Il Public Investment Fund è tra questi.

  • Only 12 Tesla solar roofs were connected to the grid in California as of May 31, Reuters reports.
  • The publication said Tesla has faced delays in its efforts to ramp up production of its solar roof tiles due to assembly-line issues at its Buffalo, New York, factory and the challenges involved in meeting CEO Elon Musk's aesthetic expectations. 
  • Tesla declined to comment on the number of solar roofs it has installed.
  • During Tesla's second-quarter earnings call, Musk said there are "several hundred homes with the solar roof on them." A Tesla spokesperson told Business Insider that the cited number includes homes that are in the installation process or are scheduling an installation, in addition to homes where installation has been completed.


Only 12 Tesla solar roofs were connected to the grid in California as of May 31, Reuters reports.

The publication said Tesla has faced delays in its efforts to ramp up production of its solar roof tiles due to assembly-line issues at its Buffalo, New York, factory and the challenges involved in meeting CEO Elon Musk's aesthetic expectations. 

Tesla declined to comment on the number of solar roofs it has installed. A Tesla representative said the company is ramping up solar roof production and will increase the rate of production near the end of this year.

The representative referred Business Insider to a comment Musk made during the company's second-quarter earnings call in which he said there are "several hundred homes with the solar roof on them." The representative said that number includes homes that are in the installation process or are scheduling an installation, in addition to homes where installation has been completed.

During the call, Musk said the solar roof testing process is time-consuming.

“It's quite a long validation program for a roof which is going to last for 30, 40, 50 years," he said.

Tesla's solar roof — which consists of a series of solar panels that resemble roof tiles and are meant to cover a customer's entire roof — is a major selling point for the company. It was designed to be more aesthetically pleasing than typical solar panels and more durable than traditional roof tile materials like clay, slate, and terra cotta.

Tesla began taking reservations for the solar roof in May 2017 and said installations would begin that summer, but the first installations for customers who weren't Tesla employees didn't begin until April 2018.

In its first-quarter earnings report this year, Tesla said it anticipated a significant increase in solar roof production during the second half of the year.

Stocks were mixed Wednesday despite a recent wave of upbeat corporate earnings as a new round of tariffs between the US and China dragged energy companies lower. The dollar and Treasury yields fell. 

Here's the scoreboard:

Dow Jones industrial average25,583.55 −45.36 (-0.18%)

S&P 500: 2,861.20 +2.75 (+0.096%)

Nasdaq Composite 7,888.33 +4.66 (+0.06%)

  1. Another $16 billion worth of US exports to China — including oil products and cars — will be subject to a 25% tax. After the Trump administration followed through with a 25% tariff on an additional $16 billion of Chinese goods, Beijing retaliated in kind. The latest tariffs, which bring the running total of targeted goods to $50 billion for both China and the US, are set to take effect August 23.
  2. Washington rolled out punitive sanctions against Moscow for the poisoning of ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in March. The measures came amid pressure from Congress and months after the UK issued sanctions penalizing the Kremlin for the poisoning, which took place on British soil.
  3. Saudi Arabia's central bank ordered its fund managers to dump Canadian bonds, stocks and cash. The move came after Canada's foreign ministry criticized Saudi Arabia for its arrests of prominent human-rights activists and called for their release. Saudi Arabia's state airline is also set to suspend flights to and from Toronto Pearson International beginning next week.

          The SEC has reportedly made inquiries into Tesla about Elon Musk's tweet regarding possibly taking the company private (TSLA)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

elon musk

  • The Securities and Exchange Commission made an inquiry into Tesla about whether one of Elon Musk's tweets regarding the possibility of taking the company private was truthful, The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.
  • According to the publication, the SEC is also looking into why Musk's first statement about the potential of taking Tesla private was made on Twitter instead of in a regulatory filing.
  • The agency also asked the company whether it believes Musk's tweet follows SEC rules about protecting investors, The Journal reported.
  • "Am considering taking Tesla private at $420. Funding secured," Musk said on Tuesday via Twitter before issuing a formal statement on Tesla's website.
  • The SEC declined Business Insider's request for comment, and Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment. 

The Securities and Exchange Commission made an inquiry into Tesla about whether one of Elon Musk's tweets regarding the possibility of taking the company private was truthful, The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday, citing people familiar with the matter.

According to the publication, the SEC is also looking into why Musk's first statement about the potential of taking Tesla private was made on Twitter instead of in a regulatory filing. The agency also asked the company whether it believes Musk's tweet follows SEC rules about protecting investors, The Journal reported.

The SEC declined Business Insider's request for comment, and Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

"Am considering taking Tesla private at $420. Funding secured," Musk said on Tuesday via Twitter before issuing a formal statement on Tesla's website.

Tesla's share price surged after the tweet, rising by as much as 12%, to over $381, before trading closed.

No details about funding have been disclosed though. And according to Musk's statement, no final decision has been made. And that has some experts raising an eyebrow.

James Rosener, a partner at the law firm Pepper Hamilton, told Business Insider that Twitter was not the right medium for a securities disclosure since the platform's 280-character limit prevented Musk from disclosing enough information relevant to investors — including the structure of the deal, its tax impact, and the amount of debt it would require — to ensure he's not misleading them.

According to Rosener, Musk's tweet likely ran afoul of the SEC's anti-fraud rules.

"There's definitely material omissions," Rosener said. "Clearly, it was not what any lawyer with any experience in this kind of stuff would advise to put out."

David Whiston, an equity strategist at Morningstar who covers the US auto industry, said he was confused by Musk's tweets, which he said indicated Musk had both the funding and the shareholder votes necessary to take the company private.

"I'm still trying to understand why he even went public like this," Whiston said, "because I don't see a point in going public to say you are considering going private unless you're trying to get, perhaps, the price higher than $420 a share, or you're just really eager to hurt the short-sellers. Otherwise, why wouldn't you just wait until you're definitely doing a deal to say something?"

Tesla's board released a statement on Wednesday morning, but it was very brief and offered few details besides that Musk met with the board last week to bring up the possibility of going private. Musk said via Twitter on Tuesday that the deal was contingent on a shareholder vote but that "investor support is confirmed."

Tesla has been public since 2010, but Musk has said in the past that he would like to take Tesla private.

"I wish we could be private with Tesla," Musk said in an interview with Rolling Stone published in November. "It actually makes us less efficient to be a public company."

Musk has also said on multiple occasions that Tesla will become profitable by the end of this year and won't need to raise additional funds, despite its increased cash-burn rate in recent quarters.

At the end of June, Tesla said it achieved its goal of making 5,000 Model 3 sedans in one week. Musk previously said that the company would hit that number by the end of 2017 and that sustaining such a production rate is critical for Tesla to become profitable.

The Financial Times reported on Tuesday that Saudi Arabia's sovereign wealth fund had acquired a $2 billion stake in the company. The fund owns between 3% and 5% of Tesla's total stock, meaning the stake is likely worth $1.7 billion to $2.9 billion.

  • Tesla CEO Elon Musk shocked observers on Tuesday by expressing his desire to take the company private.
  • In an email to employees, he said the pressures of being a public company create distractions and promote short-term thinking that may not produce the best decisions in the long-term, but added that a final decision could not be made until a shareholder vote is held.

  • If a deal doesn't go through, Musk will have to explain, in detail, why he expressed confidence on Twitter, Whiston said.


Elon Musk went rogue on Twitter Tuesday saying that he was considering taking Tesla private for $420 per share and that he had "funding secured."

No details about funding have been disclosed, though. And according to a statement from Musk posted after his tweets, no final decision has been made. And that has some experts raising an eyebrow. 

James Rosener, a partner at the law firm Pepper Hamilton, said Twitter was not the right medium for a securities disclosure since the platform's 280-character limit prevented Musk from disclosing enough information relevant to investors — including the structure of the deal, its tax impact, and the amount of debt it would require — to ensure he's not misleading them. According to Rosener, Musk's tweet likely ran afoul of the SEC's anti-fraud rules.

"There's definitely material omissions," he said. "Clearly, it was not what any lawyer with any experience in this kind of stuff would advise to put out."

Musk should have waited until a deal was confirmed

David Whiston, an equity strategist at Morningstar who covers the US auto industry, told Business Insider he was confused by Musk's tweets, which he said indicated Musk had both the funding and shareholder votes necessary to take the company private.

"I'm still trying to understand why he even went public like this, because I don't see a point in going public to say you are considering going private unless you're trying to get, perhaps, the price higher than $420 a share, or you're just really eager to hurt the short-sellers. Otherwise, why wouldn't you just wait until you're definitely doing a deal to say something," he said.

Tesla's board did release a statement on Wednesday morning, but it was also very brief and offered few details besides that Musk met with the board last week to bring up the possibility of going private. Musk said via Twitter on Tuesday that the deal was contingent on a shareholder vote, but that "investor support was confirmed."

"He thinks going private is the best path forward. He's saying he's got the money and he's saying he's got the votes. So, again, it begs the question: What are you waiting for? Is the board not on board with this? Or is he trying to get more money? Or was he just throwing it out there to gauge a reaction. Or was he just very interested in hurting the short-sellers as quickly as he could?" Whiston said. "The latter doesn't make sense to me because you can hurt the short-sellers once you announce you're going private anyway."

If a deal doesn't go through, Musk will have to explain, in detail, why he expressed confidence on Twitter, Whiston said.

"Otherwise, it could look like you're manipulating the stock price to hurt short-sellers."

Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for a comment. 

Besides raising questions about stock manipulation, some experts are also questioning whether going public is actually in the company's best interest. 

Musk said in his statement that the pressures of being a public company create distractions and promote short-term thinking that may not produce the best decisions in the long-term. 

But Tesla has big ambitions, and the best way to accomplish its goals could be by staying public, Karl Brauer, executive publisher for Kelley Blue Book, said.

Brauer said he understands why Elon Musk would want to go private, but said that better execution on vehicle production could have improved the company's financial performance and reduced the amount of scrutiny it faced from shareholders and analysts.

"If there was clear movement toward costs not far outstripping revenue or income ... it would drastically change the conversation," he said.

While a company doesn't need to be publicly-funded to be successful, companies with ambitions on the scale of Tesla's tend to use public markets to meet their financing needs, Brauer said.

"I look around at most of the other hugely successful companies, and they're almost all public."

Going private may reduce Tesla's distractions

Musk may have a point about the benefits of going private, according to Michael Ramsey, a research director at Gartner. Like Musk, Ramsey said a privately-funded Tesla would be able to focus on what is best for the company, rather than making decisions based on external pressures.

"I think it's mostly a good idea for Tesla. There's a lot of advantages to going private if you feel like your behavior is being altered or affected by demands of Wall Street," he said.

He cited the company's publicly-stated goal of making 5,000 Model 3 sedans in one week, a target it missed on multiple occasions but achieved at the end of June, as an example of how relying on public funding misaligned Tesla's priorities. The company would have been better off making a smaller number of cars and focusing on quality control, he said.

Mutual funds are bleeding cash at an unprecedented rate, warns Moody's 

It's not getting any easier for stock pickers to hold on to their clients.

According to Moody's, investors have pulled cash from actively managed equity mutual funds in the US at the fastest year-to-date pace on record. The funds lost $129.11 billion of investor dollars from January to July, up from $99.88 billion a year earlier, data compiled by the Investment Company Institute and cited by Moody's show.

The flight of money away from managers who meticulously pick stocks and to exchange-traded funds is happening a bit faster than Moody's had forecast. The market share of passive investments last year was nearly 35%, more than the credit-rating agency's estimate of 34%.

Elon Musk reportedly met with Japan's SoftBank last year about taking Tesla private

Tesla's chief executive Elon Musk met with SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son in April 2017 about the Japanese investment firm assisting in taking Tesla private, Bloomberg reported Wednesday.

The report came the day after Musk said he was considering taking Tesla private and that funding had been secured, but did not offer any specifics about the unprecedented move.

Bloomberg reported that Musk and Son failed to reach an agreement over the structure of the company, citing sources. Tesla was trading around $300 per share in April 2017 when the talks reportedly fell through. The talks are no longer underway, Bloomberg said.

One in 2 ICOs failed in the 2nd quarter — and those that succeeded suffered huge losses

Money continues to flood into the booming market for digital tokens issued by startups despite declines both in the quality of the projects seeking funding and in the investment returns, according to a new report.

Fifty-five percent of so-called initial coin offerings failed to complete in the second quarter, according to a report from the agency ICORating. That was 5% more than failed in the first quarter.

ICOs are a fundraising method in which companies and projects issue digital tokens structured like bitcoin or Ethereum. These tokens are sold in return for cash used to fund the development of the seller's businesses. ICOs exploded from almost nothing to be a multibillion-dollar market in 2017, surging in popularity alongside the rise in the price of bitcoin.

  • Tesla CEO Elon Musk met with SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son about taking the electric-car maker private last year, Bloomberg reports.

Tesla's chief executive Elon Musk met with SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son in April 2017 about the Japanese investment firm assisting in taking Tesla private, Bloomberg reported Wednesday.

The report came the day after Musk said he was considering taking Tesla private and that funding had been secured, but did not offer any specifics about the unprecedented move.

Bloomberg's Selina Wang and Giles Turner reported that Musk and Son failed to reach an agreement over the structure of the company, citing sources. Tesla was trading around $300 per share in April 2017 when the talks reportedly fell through. The talks are no longer underway, Bloomberg said.

SoftBank and its $100 billion Vision Fund have made a slew of investments in tech firms around the world. So far, it has bought a 20% stake in GM's Cruise autonomous driving unit and made smaller investments in Uber, Nvidia, WeWork, and more. 

Musk tweeted on Tuesday that he would like to leave public markets at $420 per share — a 20% upside to their price that day. At that price, and given Musk's 20% stake in Tesla, roughly $60 billion would be needed to go private. 

Also on Tuesday, the Financial Times reported that Saudi Arabia's public investment fund — a major backer of SoftBank's fund — had invested roughly $2 billion in Tesla for a stake representing 3% to 5% of the company.

Shares of Tesla skyrocketed Tuesday when the plan was announced, but sank about 1.5% in trading Wednesday.

A Tesla spokesperson declined to comment.

          Taking Tesla private would be the largest buyout in history — but maybe not much money would change hands (TSLA)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

elon musk

  • If Tesla goes private at over $80 billion, it would be the largest buyout in history.
  • But we don't know enough about a potential deal to rule out a less expensive strategy.
  • CEO Elon Musk could be thinking only about financing the possible exit of Tesla retail investors while converting institutional stakes into private shares.


It looks like Tesla CEO Elon Musk is serious about taking Tesla private

Already, the gyrations among observers of the company have begun — for good reason, given that the deal would come in at north of $80 billion if Musk's $420-per-share valuation is to be believed. That would be combined with Tesla's existing debt.

Bloomberg's Matt Levine has thrashed through the mechanics, such as they are. He basically hits on the salient issue, which is how Tesla current group of shareholders could transition from owning a public company to owning a private one:

So Tesla would be owned by the same number of shareholders, in the same proportions as now? But it would somehow be … private? I don’t … think … that’s how … any of this … like, if you have thousands of retail shareholders, you’re still giving them quarterly 10-Qs. That’s what being public means. It means being open to unlimited numbers of retail shareholders. And the securities laws, in their wisdom, say that if you do that then you need to give them quarterly earnings information.

Musk owns 20% of Tesla and says he isn't selling. Big institutional investors such as Fidelity and T. Rowe Price own other major chunks. The Saudi sovereign wealth funds and China's Tencent have about 10%. I doubt they'd be selling, either.

Retail investors have about 15%, and they could be key to how a deal gets done. 

I'm gyrating myself here, but it sounds like what Musk wants to do is create a sort of bridge financing plan to shift major public shareholders and himself — 80% of the pie — to private status. If I work with round numbers and concentrate on just the equity piece of $70 billion, assuming that only Tesla's $1.8 billion in junk bonds could be tricky, then that takes care of around $56 billion in public value.

That's assuming all the big investors think $420 per share is too low and would be willing to hang in there for the long term.

So Musk only needs to finance $14 billion on the equity side to buy out 100% of whatever skittish retail investors might want to exit. 

That looks much less intimidating than $80 billion. 

I'm not financially deep-dish enough to know how $80 billion in financing would need to be generated for, say, a day or two to facilitate the transaction. I'm pretty sure some type of vehicle would need to be legally established. 

This pretend money would I guess by agreement value Tesla at $420 per share. The risk would be that every retail investor dashes, but that seems unlikely, especially if the major shareholders consent to the deal and the Tesla board approves it. Follow the leaders.

At that point, Tesla's ongoing value would be gauged by follow-on investment in some kind of special fund, whatever happens with its debt (Maybe it all gets paid off via some additional financing?), and the frequency and scale of transactions in the private markets, which Musk suggested could be six-month "liquidity events."

What makes this work, potentially, is the size of Musk's and his big investors' stakes relative to the deal size. Presumably, all or most have to go along with the idea. Short-sellers would have to cover up to the buyout price.

Yes, this all sounds quite crazy. But also doable.

          3 reasons why you should spend $100 to get your car detailed      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Car Wash

  • Detailing is the process of deep-cleaning a vehicle.
  • It's more expensive than a regular car wash, at around $100, but it's typically done by pros
  • Once a year should do the trick.

Detailing.

It sounds so, you know, involved. Can't you just wash your car in the driveway as have countless generations before, or simply run it through a car wash once a month?

Sure, that would all be fine. You should wash your car about every month and wax it a few times per year, to keep the exterior finish in good shape.

But the daily grind still takes its toll — more so if you have pets, children, or use your vehicle for gardening/home-improvement duty or lead an active, outdoorsy lifestyle. You don't even want to know what three kids did to my Honda Odyssey minivan on a regular basis.

My argument is that it's worth it, once a year, to spend $100 to have your car detailed, which just means that in addition to a thorough exterior wash-and-wax, a professional detailer or full-service car wash will get down and dirty with the interior, extracting as much filth as possible. You'll be shocked at how new your old car looks. And in some cases, a mobile detailer will come to you, so you don't have to leave home!

I've chosen the $100 figure because that's a decent ballpark for proper detailing. You can spend extra for ever-more surgical obsessiveness, involving compressed air, Q-Tips, X-Acto knives, whatever it takes.

You also don't have to spend that much for less thorough quasi-detailing. This option will consume far less time. I recently paid about $30 to have my Toyota Prius washed, waxed, and more heavily cleaned inside than usual. The entire process ate up about half an hour on a weekend. I ended up with a quite tidy hybrid.

Ultimately, there are three main reasons to undertake this yearly or bi-annual ritual (if you opt for the cheaper treatment, which could also be a quarterly thing).

1. Your vehicle isn't gross and is, therefore, a more pleasant place to spend time.

You don't have to be a neat-freak to be depressed if your car slips over the edge into a Superfund site. Months of spilled coffee, scattered Doritos, and the simple churn of stuff will do it.

2. It maintains the resale value.

A sharp interior helps you get top-dollar for a trade-in or private sale, no doubt about it. And in an era when everybody shops based on internet photos, the cleaner the better.

3. You support your friendly neighborhood car wash.

I can get a basic wash in my neighborhood for less than $10. And I do. But every so often, it's a good idea to accept the upsells so that your local business can make more money and, you know, stay in business.

          Snap sinks to a 2-month low as fewer people use Snapchat every day (SNAP)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Snap stock price earnings active users

  • Snap reported its first-ever decline in daily active users on Tuesday.
  • Shares initially popped 10% after the company said it lost less money than Wall Street expected, but sank when markets opened Wednesday.
  • Follow Snap's stock price in real-time here. 

Shares of Snap sank more than 6% Wednesday, falling to their lowest price since June, after the company reported active user numbers that disappointed investors.

For the second quarter, Snap said its total losses per share were smaller than Wall Street had feared and that revenue was more than analysts had expected. However, the company also saw its first-ever decline in daily active users.

Shares initially popped as much as 11% following the earnings report — which coincided with news that Saudi Arabia's Prince Alwaleed had invested $250 million for a 2.3% stake in the company — before sinking into the red early Wednesday as traders digested what the falling active users metric might mean for Snapchat's future.

Also weighing on the slumping share price Wednesday was the leak of some of Snapchat's source code on GitHub, a code-hosting side recently acquired by Microsoft. The forum quickly complied with a  DMCA takedown request, but not before the snippet could be downloaded and shared widely.

"While our monthly active users continue to grow this quarter, we saw 2% decline in our daily active users," CEO Evan Spiegel said on a conference call with analysts.

He added: "This was primarily driven by a slightly lower frequency of use among our user base due to the disruption caused by our redesign. It has been approximately six months since we broadly rolled out the redesign of our application and we have been working hard to iterate and improve Snapchat based on the feedback from our community. We feel that we have now addressed the biggest frustrations we’ve heard and are eager to make more progress on the tremendous opportunity we now have to show more of the right content to the right people."

Snap is now trading more than 50% off its first trading price when it went public in March 2017, and Wall Street thinks it will only sink more. Analysts polled by Bloomberg give the stock an average price target of $11.76.

          Tesla's board of directors says Elon Musk brought up going private last week (TSLA)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

elon musk

  • The Board of Directors for Tesla said in a statement issued on Wednesday that company CEO Elon Musk had brought up the notion of taking the company private last week. 
  • Musk announced on Twitter on Tuesday that he is considering taking Tesla private at $420 per share. 
  • Some industry commentators have wondered if Musk opened himself up to legal ramifications because of the nature of his public announcement. 

Tesla's Board of Directors said in a statement issued on Wednesday that company CEO Elon Musk had brought up the notion of taking the company private last week, prior to his public Tweets on Tuesday afternoon. 

In a statement issued on the Tesla company website, Board of Directors members Brad Buss, Robyn Denholm, Ira Ehrenpreis, Antonio Gracias, Linda Johnson Rice, and James Murdoch wrote:

"Last week, Elon opened a discussion with the board about taking the company private. This included discussion as to how being private could better serve Tesla’s long-term interests, and also addressed the funding for this to occur. The board has met several times over the last week and is taking the appropriate next steps to evaluate this." 

Venture capitalist Steve Jurvetson and Kimbal Musk, Elon's brother, are also board members but are not listed among those who are included in making the statement.

Musk shocked the business world on Tuesday when he publicly announced in a series of tweets he may take the electric car company private at $420 a share. 

"Am considering taking Tesla private at $420. Funding secured," Musk first said via Twitter before issuing a formal statement on the company's website.

In the formal statement, Musk wrote "a final decision has not yet been made, but the reason for doing this is all about creating the environment for Tesla to operate best." Musk cited a desire to leave behind the distractions brought on by stock market trading and operate without the pressures of quarterly earnings cycles. 

"I fundamentally believe that we are at our best when everyone is focused on executing, when we can remain focused on our long-term mission, and when there are not perverse incentives for people to try to harm what we're all trying to achieve," he said.

But Musk's tweets about going private created an immediate firestorm, with some industry experts wondering if he opened himself up to legal liabilities by announcing his intentions to leave the market prior to a unified corporate statement with his board of directors. 

Tesla's stock soared following Musk's tweets, reaching as high as $371.15 per share after trading around $361 in early afternoon trading on Tuesday. 

Other industry experts cast doubt on the feasibility of Musk's plan to pull off a buyout of Tesla. 

Musk said in his statement that a shareholder vote must be held before a final decision is made. But he also tweeted that investor support was confirmed, only that it was contingent on a shareholder vote.

          Mustang Bullitt, Regenerative Braking, and Brian France's DUI      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

They really don't make any bad vehicles these days and luckily our favorite automotive experts help us narrow down the right car for us. We begin the show with automotive journalist, BJ Killeen, who discusses why premium SUVs are taking a top spot in the market. BJ and Alan also talk about the 2018 Ford F-150 diesel that Alan drove down to Newport Beach and they excitedly chat about the greatly improved fuel consumption of most new trucks. Then, Karl Brauer, Executive Publisher of Kelley Blue Book, sounds off about the latest rad events he was able to attend. San Francisco played host to a reenactment of the classic Mustang Bullitt car chase as Ford showed off the 2019-2020 redesign of the Mustang Bullitt and Karl said how cool it was to witness. After that, he tells us about his exciting drive down Pikes Peak in the all-new pure EV Audi e-tron and raves about its amazing regenerative brakes. Karl ends the first hour with an update on his greatly anticipated Ford GT, which he has made all of his final designs decisions on and is patiently waiting for its finalization. Next, Executive Editor of Autotrader, Brian Moody, pits the 2018 Toyota Tacoma against the 2018 Chevrolet Colorado. While the Tacoma still has one of the best resale values in the truck market, the Colorado stole Autotrader's vote. Brian explains that he believes the Tacoma played it a little too safe with their redesign, while the Colorado stepped it with their interior, diesel engine option and aggressive ZR2 off-road package. Continuing with the compact truck theme, Brian also addresses the rumors surrounding the U.S. version of the all-new Ford Ranger after a write up from their sister company in Australia, Car Guides. Brian explains that he doesn't believe we will see a diesel engine but to keep an eye out for the 2.3L EcoBoost, 10-speed automatic transmission, and a plethora of safety features. Then, before Brian goes he explains Autotrader's Accelerate, which is an online vehicle buying program that can make it possible for you to shop from the comfort of your own home. Switching gears, automotive journalist, George Kennedy, reviews the impressive handling of the 2018 Dodge Challenger Hellcat Widebody and explains that he really loved that one could tune the individual performance options on the infotainment system. After that he sounds off about the 2018 Lexus NX vs the 2018 Acura RDX and shares that he was excited to drive these two major competitors back-to-back. The NX was a little too small for 6'3" George and the RDX had a frustrating infotainment system but overall, the two were really great cars for under $50k. Changing lanes, Ed Justice, Jr. updates us on the recent DUI of NASCAR's CEO, Brian France's, and what that could mean for the position he has been in for over a decade. Ed ends the hour by sharing about his favorite new documentary, Ferrari: Race to Immortality, which showcased the most dangerous and glamorous time in racing that took place from 1955-1958. Tune in now to fill your cranium with the latest and greatest from the automotive world.

          SoCal Gas Reaches Aliso Canyon Settlement as Costs Top $1 Billion      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

It’s been nearly three years since the Aliso Canyon natural gas storage facility sprung a massive leak, sickening many, evacuating thousands, and forcing a shutdown of the Los Angeles region’s primary reserve for natural gas to keep homes warm in winter and supply regional power plants at times of peak grid demand.  

This week, facility owner Southern California Gas announced that the costs of containing, repairing and maintaining the underground storage site have ballooned to more than $1 billion, even as they long-term future of the site, reopened at limited capacity last summer against the protests of Los Angeles County and angry residents, remains very much in doubt. 

SoCalGas, a unit of Sempra energy, officially broke the $1.014 billion mark for Aliso Canyon costs in its quarterly earnings filing this week. The estimate is up 6.3 percent from $954 million in the previous quarter, and almost all of it ($987 million) has been largely recovered or is likely to be recovered through insurance, the company stated.

Of the total, about 55 percent was for temporary relocation of the people forced to evacuate their homes during the leak. However, SoCalGas also warned that the estimates could “rise significantly” due to still-pending lawsuits and potential fines.

On Wednesday, SoCalGas announced its $119.5 million settlement with state, county and local governments, pledging to repay their costs associated with the response effort, as well as establish a program with the California Air Resources Board to mitigate the methane emissions from the leak, and fund local environmental benefit projects to be run by government parties, not the company itself.

The settlement did not, however, include some of the residents of the Porter Ranch neighborhood, who are vowing to continue their legal battle to close down the Aliso Canyon site. Los Angeles County, which is a party to this week’s settlement, has also opposed the CPUC’s decision to allow SoCalGas to conduct a study into whether or not facility could be kept open for the long term. 

Last July, the California Public Utilities Commission determined that Aliso Canyon could start to operate again at limited capacity of about 24.6 billion cubic feet, or about 28 percent of its pre-leak maximum capacity. But under Senate Bill 380, a law passed in 2016, the CPUC and the utility must operate the facility only as an “asset of last resort” after other options for dealing with energy shortfalls have been exhausted. 

SB 380 also requires the CPUC to study the long-term effectiveness of closing down Aliso Canyon entirely versus keeping it open. Last July, soon after the CPUC allowed Aliso Canyon to reopen, California Gov. Jerry Brown and the California Energy Commission (CEC) put forward a plan to study how Aliso Canyon could be shut down completely within the next 10 years. 

According to SoCalGas, Aliso Canyon serves more than 11 million customers and provides fuel to 17 natural gas-fired power plants with about 10,000 megawatts of generating capacity. It’s also much closer to some of Southern California’s most heavily populated regions — a critical factor for a pipeline system that can only move gas at about 20 to 30 miles per hour. While it takes only one to two hours for Aliso Canyon-stored gas to reach key Los Angeles area power plants, for example, it would take about 10 hours to supply those plants from terminals at the Arizona border, according to SoCalGas. 

Aliso Canyon’s closure in January 2016 led to fears that Southern California could be faced with energy shortages during both cold winter months, when natural gas for heating is in high demand, and during hot summer months, when air conditioning drives natural gas-fired electricity demand to peak levels. A joint state agency study in April 2016 warned of the risk of multi-day blackouts without a wide range of energy efficiency, solar power, demand response, energy storage, and other distributed energy resources to take its place. 

The threat drove the CPUC to fast-track utility deployments of DERs in record time, starting with the 2016 procurement of nearly 100 megawatts of energy storage from Tesla, Greensmith Energy and AES Energy Storage, including what is currently the country’s biggest battery — the 30-megawatt/120-megawatt-hour Escondido system that AES built for San Diego Gas & Electric. 

A law passed in 2017, SB 801, requires LADWP and SCE to procure additional energy storage — 100 megawatts and 20 megawatts, respectively — to meet reliability needs for Aliso Canyon.

Southern California Edison, which contracted for most of the energy storage above, also turned to Nest to enable 50 megawatts of smart thermostat-enabled peak load reduction, tapping about 50,000 of its existing customers in the region with utility incentives to reduce air conditioning loads in summer months. 

SoCalGas has also turned to Nest and Ecobee for an unusual wintertime demand response program, aimed at lowering natural gas consumption for heating, which saw its first test in December 2017. While uptake has been “minimal” thus far, the utility and its partners are seeking to increase participation for the coming winter, according to a March letter from the CPUC that outlined how utilities have been tapping those alternatives before tapping Aliso Canyon’s limited reserves over the winter. 

The CPUC’s letter noted that utilities SCE and Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) have also been working to re-dispatch power generation needs to plants outside the LA basin in an attempt to reduce demand on the regional natural gas supply system. The CPUC even issued a temporary moratorium on new commercial and industrial customer interconnections in parts of Los Angeles County reliant on Aliso Canyon service in December, although it lifted it in March. 

But with state grid operator CAISO facing the need for emergency demand reduction to meet late-summer electricity peaks, and the possibility of a colder-than-expected winter putting more stress on next year’s natural gas demands, it’s likely that Aliso Canyon may be called upon again in the near future — even as agencies look at ways it could be replaced in the long run.

          Musk sorprende a Wall Street con la posible retirada de Tesla, que se desboca en Bolsa      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Las acciones de la compañía automovilística Tesla se desbocaron este martes al subir un 11 por ciento después de que su fundador, Elon Musk, anunciara en una serie de publicaciones en Twitter su intención de retirar a la empresa de la bolsa. Aunque la jornada bursátil empezó con cierta normalidad, Musk desconcertó a los inversores alrededor del mediodía cuando dijo en la red social que estaba «considerando privatizar Tesla a 420 dólares (la acción). Financiación asegurada». El anuncio fue tan inesperado y anómalo que varios de los medios de comunicación especializados apuntaban a un posible pirateo de la red social de Musk, subrayando el uso sospechoso del número «420», repetido varias veces, que en EE.UU. se utiliza coloquialmente para referirse a la marihuana. Aunque Tesla inicialmente no emitió ningún comunicado, el magnate sí que siguió dando detalles de su idea por la misma vía, explicando que «los accionistas podrían vender sus acciones a 420 o quedárselas y pasarse a privado». Los mensajes desataron una importante subida del valor de las acciones, de más de un 7 por ciento, y sobre las 13.00 hora local pasaba desde los 355,50 dólares por acción a casi 362 en cuestión de 5 minutos. Tras la intensa subida, a las 14.07, se suspendió la cotización en bolsa de la compañía ante la confusión de los inversores, que han considerado este martes la intervención de Musk como una mera «acción estratégica» para impulsar el valor de Tesla en un momento en el que se está poniendo en duda su viabilidad económica. Algunos de los expertos planteaban en los medios especializados si la maniobra del magnate era legal, aunque la Comisión de Bolsa y Valores de EE.UU. ya dijo en 2013 que las compañías podían anunciar sus decisiones en Facebook y Twitter. Tesla volvió a cotizar poco antes del cierre del día, a las 15.45 hora local (19.45 GMT), 15 minutos en los que sus acciones se dispararon hasta registrar una subida del 10,99 por ciento, con lo que llegaron a los 379,56 dólares al sumar 37,57 dólares a su valor en un sólo día. A la vez que volvía a cotizar, se hacía público un correo de Musk enviado a los empleados en el que explicaba que la decisión aun no es final, ya que aún tiene que ser aprobada, y enumeraba sus razones por las que consideraba beneficiosa una retirada de Wall Street. «La razón por hacer esto es crear un ambiente en el que Tesla pueda operar mejor. Como empresa en bolsa, estamos sujetos a los cambios salvajes en el precio de nuestras acciones, que pueden ser una distracción importante para todos los trabajadores de Tesla, quienes son todos accionistas», argumentaba el documento. Además, señalaba que estar en bolsa «significa que hay un gran número de personas que tienen incentivos para atacar a la compañía». Musk apuntó que la compañía necesita una estabilidad, dado que tiene «misiones a largo plazo», pero no descartó volver a bolsa en un futuro, cuando Tesla «inicie una fase de crecimiento más lenta y predecible». El anuncio de este martes se produjo después de que el empresario haya criticado abiertamente a los vendedores a corto plazo del mercado, que hacen fluctuar el valor de la empresa constantemente. El valor en mercado de Tesla, que salió a bolsa en 2010, es en la actualidad de unos 58.070 millones de dólares, pero si se consiguen vender las acciones a los 420 dólares que indicó Musk para retirar a la empresa de la bolsa, alcanzaría los 70.000 millones de dólares. La operación, además, sería la mayor compra de acciones privadas de la historia, y supondría liberar a la empresa de ciertas presiones, como el constante análisis público a la que está sometida y el tener que revelar cada trimestre sus resultados. Los inversores han mostrado su preocupación últimamente por la cantidad de gastos que acumula el fabricante de coches eléctricos y la duda de si sería capaz de reunir suficientes fondos para financiar sus proyectos de crecimiento, entre los que se incluyen nuevas fábricas y modelos.

Chief Executive Elon Musk said on Twitter he is considering taking Tesla Inc private at $420 per share as the electric car maker faces the challenges of fast growth and financial constraints, sending its shares up more than 6 percent. At $420 per share, a deal would represent a 22.8 percent premium to Tesla’s closing price on Monday, making it one of the biggest go-private deals with a price tag of about $72 billion. Musk took to social media writing, 'Am considering taking Tesla private at $420. Funding secured,' When asked on Twitter whether he was serious, Musk replied: “Yes.... It saves a lot of headaches.” Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for clarification. Tesla’s shares jumped to $362.74 in afternoon trading. The company had a market value of $58 billion as of Monday’s close. Musk owns nearly 20 percent of the company. Earlier in the day, the Financial Times reported that Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund, overseen by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, has built an undisclosed stake of between 3 and 5 percent stake in Tesla.

Tesla boss Elon Musk is considering taking the electric-car firm private, a move he claimed was the "best path forward" for the company. Musk announced the plan on Twitter and said investors backed it, though it requires a shareholder vote. Miriam Gottfried, Private Equity Reporter for The Wall Street Journal, gives us her reaction. Colombia's new president, Ivan Duque, was sworn into office on Tuesday. The BBC's Luis Fajardo watched Mr Duque's inaugural speech. Disney posted disappointing earnings, prompting a 2 per cent drop in its share price. Anthony Ha of Tech Crunch explains why things are still looking up for the company. Plus we have a report from Stockholm where growing numbers of Swedes are paying to have microchips inserted under their skin, to help with accessing locked doors and in place of rail tickets.

Илон Маск собрался сделать Tesla частной компанией. Глава калифорнийского производителя электрокаров Илон Маск заявил, что собирается сменить статус компании с публичной на частный. В своем Твиттере Маск сообщил о намерении выкупить все акции Tesla по цене 420 долларов за штуку и добавил, что финансирование уже найдено. По оценке AP, при столь высокой стоимости акций и нынешней капитализации Tesla сумма сделки достигнет почти 72 млрд долларов. Axios заявляет, что сделка может быть оценена в 85 млрд долларов, включая долги компании. При этом около 20% Tesla уже принадлежит самому Илону Маску. По его собственным заявлениям, единственным препоном на пути к этому может стать получение одобрения от акционеров. Они могут либо продать свои акции, либо сохранить доли через специальный фонд.

          Report: Now the SEC is looking into Elon Musk’s tweets      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

In case you haven’t heard, Elon Musk tweeted yesterday and rocketed his company’s stock. Now, the Securities and Exchange Commission is asking questions. That’s according to a new report from the Wall Street Journal, citing sources. The SEC is not commenting on a possible investigation and Tesla has not yet returned a request for comment.

At 12:48 ET Tuesday, Elon Musk shot off this: “Am considering taking Tesla private at $420. Funding secured.” By the end of the day, Musk had released vague plans to go private via an internal email (though it remains unclear who exactly would take the company private), and Tesla’s stock price made an 11% gain. Tesla’s board has apparently met several times to discuss a proposal to go private, the Wall Street Journal reported yesterday

Announcing corporate plans via Twitter, though not normal, isn’t illegal. Manipulating the stock market, however, is. Where Tesla could be in trouble is if there aren’t real plans to go private. According to the report, the SEC is asking whether what Musk said was true and why he chose to announce via Twitter.

Tesla’s stock closed down nearly 2.5%, though it appears to be moving marginally upwards in after-hours trades.

Board members at Tesla are evaluating CEO and Chairman Elon Musk’s $72 billion proposal to take the electric car maker while government regulators look into whether the announcement of the potential deal meet legal requirements. Six of Tesla’s nine members said in a statement Wednesday that Musk began talking with the board about the move last week. This included discussing how being a private company could better serve Tesla’s long-term interests. Board members met several times and also addressed funding for the move, according to the statement. The eccentric Musk announced the bombshell move Tuesday on Twitter, writing that he had secured funding to buy Tesla Inc.’s shares at $420 each.

根据华尔街日报报道,日前,马斯克宣布将以420美元每股的价格将公司私有化,并表示“资金已经就位”。美国证券交易委员会已经开始对马斯克的这一计划展开调查,以证明马斯克的说法是否真实。

根据CNBC报道,美国华尔街分析师Efraim Levy表示,外界对于马斯克所称的私有化退市计划存在怀疑,资金来源是怀疑的重点,而且这样的私有化也并非完全没有风险,这一计划会极大干扰特斯拉公司股价未来的走势。

ofo准备退出韩国市场,当地大部分员工已停职

据《韩国先驱报》报道,知情人士透露,中国共享单车公司ofo正准备退出韩国市场,将重心转向国内。该公司今年一月进入韩国,尚不到一年。“虽然尚未完全终止在韩国的业务,但ofo韩国正处于全面裁员的过程中,大部分员工目前都处于‘停职’的状态,”这位消息人士说。

截至周二,ofo应用程序仍然可以在韩国的谷歌Play商店下载。据韩国地方媒体报道,在釜山,这些自行车仍可以像往常一样通过应用解锁。韩国是ofo进入的第21个市场,今年1月,它在釜山部署了约2000辆小黄车。到了6月,该服务的使用次数达到了1.5万次。

美国国土安全部发现数百万美国智能手机存在安全漏洞

PingWest品玩8月9日讯,根据Fifth Domain报道,美国国土安全部科学与技术局的项目经理Vincent Sritapan在拉斯维加斯举行的黑帽会议上表示,美国四大手机运营商提供的手机,存在“大量”漏洞,这些漏洞可以让黑客得到手机最高权限,获取用户数据、邮件短信等信息。美国国土安全部官员拒绝透露哪些制造商存在潜在的漏洞。由于市场规模庞大,政府官员也可能面临风险。

研究人员表示,今年2月份就已经通知制造商漏洞的存在,但一些制造商并未公布漏洞修复的流程。尚不清楚黑客是否已经利用这个漏洞。

据路透社报道,三星Galaxy S7手机容易受到Meltdown漏洞的影响,这可能允许攻击者访问CPU处理的数据。三星最初表示它曾在1月和7月再次修补其手机对抗Meltdown,但似乎这些补丁尚未证明是足够的。

          Regulators have questions for Elon Musk      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The Securities and Exchange Commission has asked Tesla for information related to CEO Elon Musk's tweets about taking the company private, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Why it matters: Musk tweeted "funding secured" for a possible $420 per share bid, but there has been lots of skepticism because he hasn't yet identified any participating investors. The SEC reportedly wants to know if the statement was factual. If it wasn't, he could be subject to accusations of market manipulation.

Go deeper: Toying with taking Tesla private


          Behind Musk's tweet: Toying with taking Tesla private      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Elon Musk yesterday sent the tweet heard round the Street:

Bottom line: Only Elon Musk knows the full story here, and he isn't being very transparent with his shareholders, employees or us in the media. That's why shares today will open below $400, let alone below $420. The skepticism is on him, and will persist until he answers some pretty basic questions.


Lots to break down here:

"Am considering taking Tesla private at $420."

It's not really surprising that Musk would want to take Tesla private, given how prickly he can get when bank analysts question the company's performance. And there's always the standby argument about how long-term, strategic planning is easier at a private company than at a public one.

  • As for the $420 per share — that tracks fairly close to the market-standard 20% premium, even though it also tracks exactly to cannabis market slang.

"Funding secured."

This is where it gets really interesting. For starters, Musk doesn't identify the funders — neither in his tweet, nor in a follow-up blog post.

And multiple sources tell me it's none of the usual suspects on the debt side (i.e., big Wall Street banks). Nor many on the equity side, such as big strategics (not Apple or Uber), private equity (not KKR, Mithril, Silver Lake, TPG, etc.) nor deeper financial pockets (not SoftBank or Mubadala).

  • One big wildcard remains the Saudis, particularly since Musk's tweet came shortly after an FT report that a Saudi fund had acquired a $2 billion position in Tesla, and because the Saudis have major interest in solar energy.

No other reporter so far has managed to find any of Musk's financing partners either. Or perhaps I should say his supposed financing partners. Because...

Regulatory ruin

If Musk didn't actually have enough funding secured when he tweeted, then the SEC should come down on him like a bag of batteries. And the shorts will create a full employment act for plaintiffs' lawyers.

Companies are allowed to disclose material information via social media, but disclosing false or misleading information remains off-limits. The first part of Musk's tweet was aspirational, but the second part was factual.

Security concerns

If Musk is getting financing from a non-U.S. actor like the Saudis, expect any deal to undergo a CFIUS review. Not so much because Tesla makes connected cars or residential solar panels, but more because it's involved in utility-scale energy efforts. I'd also think the current trade tensions would eliminate any Chinese tech company from contention.

Precedent

There is none for buyout-by-tweet, but lots of folks have been comparing Musk's efforts to those of Michael Dell in 2013. But there are a lot of big differences:

  • Dell didn't publicly ponder an acquisition. He made a formal, detailed offer that named private equity and lending partners. And this led to the company forming a special committee, which hasn't happened yet at Tesla (although members of the board just said that Musk first broached the topic with them last week).
  • Dell didn't push himself to meet his quarterly number right before the takeover attempt, thus driving up the price.
  • Dell didn't offer to let existing shareholders roll over their equity (more on that in a minute), nor was there widespread belief that his company would need a subsequent cash infusion.

Structure

At $420 per share, Tesla's equity would be valued at $71.6 billion and its overall enterprise value would be around $85 billion (including debt). Musk currently holds a 19.87% equity stake, which means he'd theoretically need around $57 billion in financing. But Musk also wants to let existing shareholders roll over —maybe into a Fidelity-run special purpose vehicle, like exits has for the never-public SpaceX — so his ultimate needs could be much less.

  • It's worth noting that Musk reportedly didn't gauge major shareholder interest prior to his tweet, so the SEC should hold him to the full $57 billion when judging "funding secured."

          3 reasons why you should spend $100 to get your car detailed      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Car Wash

  • Detailing is the process of deep-cleaning a vehicle.
  • It's more expensive than a regular car wash, at around $100, but it's typically done by pros
  • Once a year should do the trick.

Detailing.

It sounds so, you know, involved. Can't you just wash your car in the driveway as have countless generations before, or simply run it through a car wash once a month?

Sure, that would all be fine. You should wash your car about every month and wax it a few times per year, to keep the exterior finish in good shape.

But the daily grind still takes its toll — more so if you have pets, children, or use your vehicle for gardening/home-improvement duty or lead an active, outdoorsy lifestyle. You don't even want to know what three kids did to my Honda Odyssey minivan on a regular basis.

My argument is that it's worth it, once a year, to spend $100 to have your car detailed, which just means that in addition to a thorough exterior wash-and-wax, a professional detailer or full-service car wash will get down and dirty with the interior, extracting as much filth as possible. You'll be shocked at how new your old car looks. And in some cases, a mobile detailer will come to you, so you don't have to leave home!

I've chosen the $100 figure because that's a decent ballpark for proper detailing. You can spend extra for ever-more surgical obsessiveness, involving compressed air, Q-Tips, X-Acto knives, whatever it takes.

You also don't have to spend that much for less thorough quasi-detailing. This option will consume far less time. I recently paid about $30 to have my Toyota Prius washed, waxed, and more heavily cleaned inside than usual. The entire process ate up about half an hour on a weekend. I ended up with a quite tidy hybrid.

Ultimately, there are three main reasons to undertake this yearly or bi-annual ritual (if you opt for the cheaper treatment, which could also be a quarterly thing).

1. Your vehicle isn't gross and is, therefore, a more pleasant place to spend time.

You don't have to be a neat-freak to be depressed if your car slips over the edge into a Superfund site. Months of spilled coffee, scattered Doritos, and the simple churn of stuff will do it.

2. It maintains the resale value.

A sharp interior helps you get top-dollar for a trade-in or private sale, no doubt about it. And in an era when everybody shops based on internet photos, the cleaner the better.

3. You support your friendly neighborhood car wash.

I can get a basic wash in my neighborhood for less than $10. And I do. But every so often, it's a good idea to accept the upsells so that your local business can make more money and, you know, stay in business.

(Markets Edition) The Trump administration might try to deny citizenship to people who've received welfare, help from social services, welfare, and coverage under the Affordable Care Act. Its reasoning? This notion that immigrants are a drain on health services. But we'll look at a some new data showing immigrants actually use them at a lower rate than people born in the U.S. Afterwards, we'll discuss Elon Musk's plans to potentially take Tesla off the public stock market, and then we'll explore how open office floorplans might actually lead to less interaction among co-workers.

          Why Elon Musk wants to take Tesla private      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Elon Musk set the internet and stocks a flurry on Tuesday after tweeting he was thinking of taking Tesla private. It's far from a done deal, but if it does move forward, Tesla would be the largest company ever to go from public to private. In an email to employees that was also posted on Tesla's website, Musk said the move would "[create] the environment for Tesla to operate best." No more quarterly earnings reports, no more short sellers , and less focus on immediate profits. “In his mind, he would have full control, and he could think long term," said Kelly Blue Book's Karl Brauer. Musk holds a 20 percent stake in the company, so he’d still have a lot of private investors to answer to. But it would be, you know, private. Click on the audio player above to hear more.

New York (dpa) - Die per Tweet verbreiteten Planspiele von Tesla-Chef Elon Musk, sein Unternehmen womöglich von der Börse zu nehmen, könnten Ermittlungen nach sich ziehen. Die US-Börsenaufsicht SEC habe sich bei Tesla erkundigt, ob die massiv kursbewegende Mitteilung den Tatsachen entspreche und warum sie über Twitter lanciert worden sei, schreibt das «Wall Street Journal» unter Berufung auf Insider. Normalerweise verbreiten börsennotierte Unternehmen Nachrichten, die das Zeug haben, den Aktienkurs stärker schwanken zu lassen, außerhalb der Handelszeiten als Pflichtmitteilungen.

1971-től gyártották ezt a tévét. Vlagyimir Iljics Lenin születésének 100-ik évfordulója alkalmából készítették. Innen a név, VL-100.
Szélesség: 15 cmHosszúság: 26 cmMagasság: 18 cmSúly: 3. 56 kgVL100 kistévé
(nehogy már ez kimaradjon)
Elektronika VL100 kistévé, mely Lenin születésének századik évfordulójára készült. Kortünet volt a maga idejében. Telkeseknek kötelező darab. Apám is szerzett egyet valahonnan. Három zsebtelepről meg lehetett nézni az esti műsort. Persze a végére már nem volt meg a 100%-os képméret.
Ezek a cirill betűs feliratok... Sikerült úgy keresztülvergődnöm az oktatási rendszeren, hogy egy szót sem sikerült belém plántálniuk a tanároknak az orosz nyelvből. Később felnőtt fejjel az angollal is ugyan ilyen "sikerélményben" volt részem. Lehet, hogy nem is az oktatási rendszerben van a hiba?
Ha keveselltük volna a két gombot, akkor a doboz másik oldalán van még másik három. Persze ezeket a feliratokat sem értem. No de nem is kell, elég csak odanyúlni és beállítani.
Ha nem ismertük volna fel a feliratokból, hogy orosz a szerkezet, akkor ez a felirat nem hagy semmi kétséget a származás eredete iránt.
A csatornaváltó kapcsológombja. A szerkezet a 12 VHF csatorna vételére alkalmas. A külső gomb a finomhangoló. Volt ennek a tévének modernebb változata is, persze már nem VL100 néven, abban már volt UHF fokozat is. Nem is oly rég járt itt egy barátom egy piros színű buborék forma orosz kistévével. Egészen normális szerkezet volt, sikerült is kétnormásítanom.
A masina háta. Le lehet róla csavarozni a tápegységet. A tévé üzemel az autó 12 voltos akkujáról, a tápegységgel pedig lehet tölteni a kocsi akkuját. A kör be vagyon zárulva. Az elektromos csatlakozók persze semmihez sem hasonlító szabványtalan típusok.
Antenna és fejhallgató csatlakozó. Miért kell Jack aljzatot használni antennához? Sosem fogom megérteni, ahogy azt sem, miért volt jó az oroszoknak a szabványtalan méretű Jack. Talán az lehetet a cél, hogy az ellenség ne tudja felhasználni saját bűnös céljaira az orosz technikát.
A tápegység lecsavarozva. Minek cipeljük magunkkal, ha egyszer kirándulásra, sátorba ha nem kell. A képen félig látható a készülék hordfüléből kinyitható antenna. Újnyi vastag, és egy méter hosszú. A tévét összelehetett kombinálni a kettes adapterrel, és akkor válogathattunk kedvünkre a két csatorna közül.
Gondoltam befogok vele egy adót, legalább egy próbakép erejéig. Na ez az ami nem jött össze. A képernyőn csak ez a vékony fényes csík látható. A függőleges eltérítés nem igazán működik. Amúgy a tévé simán túlélte, hogy fordítva adtam neki a 12 voltot a tápegységemből.
A gombokat egy méretes csavarhúzóval le kell feszegetni. Ilyenkor néha kijön a gombbal együtt a potméter tengelye is. Ez ellen nem sokat tehetünk, sajnos nagyon gyenge minőségűek ezek a pici orosz potméterek.
A készülék alját és hátát le kell csavarozni. Ezen a masinán még rajta volt az eredeti orosz plomba. Zöldre színezett méhviasz, ami összefog mindent. Hülye egy ötlet...
A képcső nyaka. Errefelé ne erőltessünk semmit, mert könnyen törnek a dolgok. A képcső 1, 5 voltos fűtő feszültségről üzemel. Ezt csak azért emelem ki, mert egyszer javítás közben adtam neki 12 voltot fűtésnek. Persze csak egy villanás erejéig...
A képen a tévében felgyülemlett por látható.
Ezeket a kis füleket kell kipattintani ahhoz, hogy le lehessen venni a burkoló lemezt. Tulajdonképpen egészen normálisan van összeszerelve.
Az antenna csavarját is ki kell tekerni. A hordfül nem esik le, de a botantenna kizuhan belőle.
Megnyúzva. A papírlap alatt a nagyfeszültségű részek vannak. Jól van ez a tévé megépítve, de ha nem szoktunk hozzá az áramütésekhez, akkor bekapcsolt állapotban ne tapogassuk túl bátran a felső panelt. A nagyfesz panel mögött a fém kocka a dobváltós VHF hangolóegység.
Így néz ki a masina kihajtott panelekkel. A paneleket darabonként egy egy egészen apró csavar tartja a helyén, a másik végükön pedig zsanérosak. Nem mértem meg, de a csavarok átmérője két milliméter alatt van. Szinte művészet vissza pirinckázni őket a helyükre! Ebben az állapotában teljesen jól szerelhető a tévé, ráadásul közben üzemképes is. Azért volna mit tanulnia a mai konstruktőrgárdának az elődöktől.
Két Sokol rádió hangszóró van a tévében. Rossz nyelvek szerint azért kettő, hogy szimmetrikusan torzítsák a képet a mágneses terükkel.
A nagyfeszültségű panel alkatrészei. Ebben a változatban már egészen modern a nagyfeszültségű sokszorozó. A miénkben egy zöld dobozka volt, méhviasszal kiöntve. Egyszer javítanom kellett. Szétszedtem, összeraktam, vettem hozzá alkatrésznek egy mécsest a Petőfi csarnokban. Kérdezte az eladó, hogy milyen színű legyen. Nem érdekes... Tévébe kell alkatrésznek.
A függőleges eltérítő fokozat és a szinkronleválasztó. Ebben a panelban van a hiba. A függőleges eltérítés egy egyszerű, szinte audió végfokozat, ami vissza van csatolva, miközben a vett jelhez van szinkronizálva. De nem akar gerjedni.
A KF fokozatok és a hangrész. Rengeteg tekercs. Egyszer régen terveztem, hogy modernizálok egy ilyen tévét. Néhány IC-vel ki lehetne váltani az alkatrészek zömét. Persze ebből a projectből sem lett semmi...
Az a baj az oroszokkal, hogy ugyan adnak a szerkezeteikhez rajzot, de annak köze sincs a doboz tartalmához. Ripsz ropsz módosítanak a kapcsolási rajzon. No nem ám alkatrész értékeket, hanem felépítést! A könyvemben két VL100-as rajz is van. Levettem a polcról az RT-t, abban is van egy rajz. Természetesen egyik sem stimmel a tévéhez. Hasonlít ugyan, de csak annyira, hogy az őrületbe kergessen.
Mindenütt csak ilyen vízszintes vonalat mérek a szkóppal. Egyszerűen nem bírom rávenni a függőleges eltérítő fokozatot az oszcillációra. Kiszedtem az összes érintett tranzisztort, mérve mind jónak látszik. Persze ez egy orosz tranzisztornál még nem jelent semmit...
Lehet, hogy egy szakadt kondi, vagy egy megnyúlt ellenállás produkálja a hibát. Rajz hiányában szinte felderíthetetlen. A képen az látható, amint kívülről vezérlem a jelgenerátorommal a fokozatot. A végfok jó.
Azok a kis fekete pöttyök a fényes kalapok helyén a kínomban cserélt tranzisztorok. A panelből hiányzó alkatrészeket nem én szedtem ki, be sem voltak építve.
Csinálhatok amit akarok, marad a vízszintes csík. Nyomogattam a panelt, újraforrasztottam, megnéztem minden tranyóról vezérelhető-e, de semmi eredmény. Persze a dologhoz az is hozzá tartozik, hogy kifejezetten utálok tévét javítani. Talán azért lehet, mert nem értek hozzá. E. Aisberg tévés könyvét ötször olvastam el, mire felfogtam belőle valamit, de aztán pár percen belül már el is felejtettem az egészet.
A piszkálás eredménye képen valamicskét jobban ki lehet vezérelni az eltérítő rendszert. Végül feladtam. Persze lényegtelen, hiszen ezt a tévét kifejezetten a szétszedtem rovatba vettem. Azt az ötszáz forintot pedig megérte. Jól elvoltam vele egy egész délutánon át. Mit is kezdtem volna vele, ha sikerül megjavítanom? Még azon filóztam, mi lenne ha tovább bontanám? Például a képcsövet még nem is mutattam belülről...

Morning folks!

A couple of interesting RNS announcements to cover today.

In the US last night, we had further entertainment from Elon Musk at Tesla ($TSLA), who tweeted: "Am considering taking Tesla private at $420. Funding secured."

It looked like it was probably a joke to me (and to others), but Musk went on to write a blog post on Tesla's website about it. From a legal point of view, it can be expensive to joke about these things.

Tesla's share price increased by 11% to close at $380 last night, not far off its all-time highs. Stormy weather in Shortville.


Today we have:

          A couple reasons why Elon Musk could actually pull off his wild plan to take Tesla private (TSLA)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

  • Elon Musk's plan to take Tesla private has generated a lot of buzz, and it has been met with a lot of skepticism
  • But there are several reasons why he might actually be able to pull off the deal.
  • He's got a few things going for him, including a market with mountains of uninvested cash, an army of believers, and ties to some massive backers that could help him make his plan a reality. 

Since setting Wall Street ablaze on Tuesday with an unexpected tweet about taking his car company Tesla private, Elon Musk has been met with a healthy dose of skepticism over his proposed plan as well as his unconventional method of announcing it. 

Analysts are taking Musk at his word that he has indeed secured funding, has investor support, and is seriously considering taking the company private — he could face serious legal consequences if he wasn't entirely truthful. But many nonetheless find the $420 a share price tag he's floated exceptionally high given that Tesla ended trading on Wednesday at $370.34 a share.

It would be the largest buyout of all time and would require gargantuan amounts of capital to complete at the more than $70 billion valuation implied by Musk's tweet. The company would need roughly $57 billion in committed financing to buy up the 80% of the company Musk doesn't own, according to Goldman Sachs estimates. 

"We don't believe the current fundamentals of Tesla support a valuation anywhere close to $420 per share," Cowen analyst Jeffrey Osborne said. He set a price target of $200.

Colin Langan at UBS set a target of $195, taking an even more dubious view: "Disclosing news of this nature via Twitter is unprecedented and, according to a former SEC chairman, may constitute fraud if Tesla does not already have the financing lined up.

"The deal would likely require participation from numerous banks and institutional investors, and we think it likely that news of the deal would have leaked had Tesla already held discussions to secure funding," Langan added.

In short, the skepticism around Musk's proposed deal is abundant.

So let's focus instead on a couple reasons why he might actually be able to pull it off.

Lots of capital sloshing around

Musk's take-private of Tesla would be unprecedented. 

But so is the amount of capital available for investment right now — a byproduct of the ultra-low interest rate environment the decade following the financial crisis.

Private equity shops having been accumulating record amounts of dry powder as funding remains plentiful while smart deals are comparatively scarce. Pitchbook estimated in March that PE funds had amassed nearly a trillion in undeployed funds.  

Sovereign wealth funds and other large backers, such as Japanese investor SoftBank, have billions in cash to throw around and the appetite to do so, too. 

A market ripe with cash looking to be invested is ideal for Tesla's charismatic leader.

"Right now there is so much money sloshing around the system that has no place to go," Rita McGrath, a professor at Columbia Business School, told Business Insider.

As McGrath sees it, there are two types of Tesla investors: Those who view the company as just another car company, akin to Ford or General Motors. These tend to be the skeptics.

Then there are those who believe the company is on the cutting edge of batteries, energy transmission, and renewable energy and that "owning Tesla is a front-seat ticket to whatever the future holds."

An investment like Musk is seeking would carry a lot of risk given the rich price tag, but for those in the latter camp who believe Tesla offers incredible upside, that may be a bet worth making "if you've got nothing else to do with that cash."

Forget about the debt

Many have pointed out that the math on a leveraged buyout for Tesla looks dicey. The company doesn't generate enough free cash flow to justify massive amounts of additional debt burden, which would create crushing interest payments for company. 

Given the cash-flow pressures and the ongoing Model 3 ramp-up, "adding as much as $50 billion of net debt to the capital structure would clearly intensify the outcomes of such an action," Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas wrote. 

"Given Tesla's financials, we don’t believe lenders would sign up to support the deal," RBC's Joseph Spak added. 

But people shouldn't be viewing this as a potential LBO, according to David Erickson, a lecturer at the Wharton School.

The deal would instead be a debt-light transaction focused on converting existing public shareholders into private shareholders, and then raising enough additional equity to cash out the shareholders that want to exit.

"What it would have to be, predominantly, is an equity take out," said Erickson, who spent 25 years on Wall Street, including several years as the global co-head of equity capital markets at Barclays. "They would have to come up with enough cash to monetize whoever doesn’t want to stay in. Most of that I would assume would be equity related." 

Getting a large chunk of existing shareholders to convert isn't that far-fetched. Large mutual funds have grown increasingly willing to invest in promising private companies.

As Musk himself has pointed out, Fidelity, the third-largest Tesla shareholder with an 8% stake, has already invested in private tech companies, including the likes Uber, Blue Apron, and his own SpaceX. 

T. Rowe Price, the second-largest shareholder with a 9% stake, has as well.

While funds that hold Tesla stock in their publicly traded indexes would be different, they could potentially cash out and shift their investment to a different arm of the company. 

The unknowable question at this point is how many shareholders would want to exit, and how much Tesla would need to raise to cash them out. 

"Let’s assume $20 billion is required. Is there somebody going to write equity checks for $20 billion?" Erickson asked, noting that Japanese investor SoftBank could be a possibility, as could a sovereign wealth fund.  

SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son held talks with Musk about a potential investment in 2017, though a deal failed to materialize and discussions are no longer active, Bloomberg reported Wednesday

Musk has assured us the funding has been secured.

And it's quite possible it has. 

Don't sleep on the Saudis

Who has that kind of money laying around?

As previously mentioned, private equity funds have mammoth amounts of capital to deploy. However, they tend to prefer companies that already generate gobs of cash rather than those that are still rapidly burning it as they carve out a business model. 

A large private investor or a sovereign wealth fund are considered more likely candidates, with many suggesting the aforementioned SoftBank and the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia as potential suitors.

The Saudis could make for a particularly good fit.

Under the direction of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the country has been trying to reduce its dependence on its vast oil reserves and diversify its income streams. The much ballyhooed initial public offering of state oil giant Saudi Aramco has yet to materialize as a solution.

"The Saudi angle is interesting to me. Their existential problem is their whole economy is based on oil," McGrath said.

Tesla's rich price could seem justifiable to the Saudis if they believe Tesla isn't just car company, but rather a bet on the future that hedges their oil riches with a "window into batteries and renewable energy," McGrath said. 

And there's evidence that of the two types of Tesla investors that McGrath highlights, the Saudis are Musk believers: The Financial Times reported Tuesday that the Saudi sovereign wealth fund had acquired a nearly 5% stake in Tesla. 

Would they be willing add substantially to that stake? Or would several other large players need to step up as well?

Musk has a great track record of wooing big investors to back his projects. Even so, it still won't be easy. 

"He'll have to convince an awful lot of people with very deep pockets," McGrath said.

          Only 12 Tesla solar roofs were reportedly connected to the grid in California at the end of May (TSLA)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

tesla solar roof

  • Only 12 Tesla solar roofs were connected to the grid in California as of May 31, Reuters reports.
  • The publication said Tesla has faced delays in its efforts to ramp up production of its solar roof tiles due to assembly-line issues at its Buffalo, New York, factory and the challenges involved in meeting CEO Elon Musk's aesthetic expectations. 
  • Tesla declined to comment on the number of solar roofs it has installed.
  • During Tesla's second-quarter earnings call, Musk said there are "several hundred homes with the solar roof on them." A Tesla spokesperson told Business Insider that the cited number includes homes that are in the installation process or are scheduling an installation, in addition to homes where installation has been completed.


Only 12 Tesla solar roofs were connected to the grid in California as of May 31, Reuters reports.

The publication said Tesla has faced delays in its efforts to ramp up production of its solar roof tiles due to assembly-line issues at its Buffalo, New York, factory and the challenges involved in meeting CEO Elon Musk's aesthetic expectations. 

Tesla declined to comment on the number of solar roofs it has installed. A Tesla representative said the company is ramping up solar roof production and will increase the rate of production near the end of this year.

The representative referred Business Insider to a comment Musk made during the company's second-quarter earnings call in which he said there are "several hundred homes with the solar roof on them." The representative said that number includes homes that are in the installation process or are scheduling an installation, in addition to homes where installation has been completed.

During the call, Musk said the solar roof testing process is time-consuming.

“It's quite a long validation program for a roof which is going to last for 30, 40, 50 years," he said.

Tesla's solar roof — which consists of a series of solar panels that resemble roof tiles and are meant to cover a customer's entire roof — is a major selling point for the company. It was designed to be more aesthetically pleasing than typical solar panels and more durable than traditional roof tile materials like clay, slate, and terra cotta.

Tesla began taking reservations for the solar roof in May 2017 and said installations would begin that summer, but the first installations for customers who weren't Tesla employees didn't begin until April 2018.

In its first-quarter earnings report this year, Tesla said it anticipated a significant increase in solar roof production during the second half of the year.

          The SEC has reportedly made inquiries into Tesla about Elon Musk's tweet regarding possibly taking the company private (TSLA)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

  • The Securities and Exchange Commission made an inquiry into Tesla about whether one of Elon Musk's tweets regarding the possibility of taking the company private was truthful, The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.
  • According to the publication, the SEC is also looking into why Musk's first statement about the potential of taking Tesla private was made on Twitter instead of in a regulatory filing.
  • The agency also asked the company whether it believes Musk's tweet follows SEC rules about protecting investors, The Journal reported.
  • "Am considering taking Tesla private at $420. Funding secured," Musk said on Tuesday via Twitter before issuing a formal statement on Tesla's website.
  • The SEC declined Business Insider's request for comment, and Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment. 

The Securities and Exchange Commission made an inquiry into Tesla about whether one of Elon Musk's tweets regarding the possibility of taking the company private was truthful, The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday, citing people familiar with the matter.

According to the publication, the SEC is also looking into why Musk's first statement about the potential of taking Tesla private was made on Twitter instead of in a regulatory filing. The agency also asked the company whether it believes Musk's tweet follows SEC rules about protecting investors, The Journal reported.

The SEC declined Business Insider's request for comment, and Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

"Am considering taking Tesla private at $420. Funding secured," Musk said on Tuesday via Twitter before issuing a formal statement on Tesla's website.

Tesla's share price surged after the tweet, rising by as much as 12%, to over $381, before trading closed.

No details about funding have been disclosed though. And according to Musk's statement, no final decision has been made. And that has some experts raising an eyebrow.

James Rosener, a partner at the law firm Pepper Hamilton, told Business Insider that Twitter was not the right medium for a securities disclosure since the platform's 280-character limit prevented Musk from disclosing enough information relevant to investors — including the structure of the deal, its tax impact, and the amount of debt it would require — to ensure he's not misleading them.

According to Rosener, Musk's tweet likely ran afoul of the SEC's anti-fraud rules.

"There's definitely material omissions," Rosener said. "Clearly, it was not what any lawyer with any experience in this kind of stuff would advise to put out."

David Whiston, an equity strategist at Morningstar who covers the US auto industry, said he was confused by Musk's tweets, which he said indicated Musk had both the funding and the shareholder votes necessary to take the company private.

"I'm still trying to understand why he even went public like this," Whiston said, "because I don't see a point in going public to say you are considering going private unless you're trying to get, perhaps, the price higher than $420 a share, or you're just really eager to hurt the short-sellers. Otherwise, why wouldn't you just wait until you're definitely doing a deal to say something?"

Tesla's board released a statement on Wednesday morning, but it was very brief and offered few details besides that Musk met with the board last week to bring up the possibility of going private. Musk said via Twitter on Tuesday that the deal was contingent on a shareholder vote but that "investor support is confirmed."

Tesla has been public since 2010, but Musk has said in the past that he would like to take Tesla private.

"I wish we could be private with Tesla," Musk said in an interview with Rolling Stone published in November. "It actually makes us less efficient to be a public company."

Musk has also said on multiple occasions that Tesla will become profitable by the end of this year and won't need to raise additional funds, despite its increased cash-burn rate in recent quarters.

At the end of June, Tesla said it achieved its goal of making 5,000 Model 3 sedans in one week. Musk previously said that the company would hit that number by the end of 2017 and that sustaining such a production rate is critical for Tesla to become profitable.

The Financial Times reported on Tuesday that Saudi Arabia's sovereign wealth fund had acquired a $2 billion stake in the company. The fund owns between 3% and 5% of Tesla's total stock, meaning the stake is likely worth $1.7 billion to $2.9 billion.

          SEC Is Probing Musk's "Going Private" Tweet To Determine If He Lied      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

With Elon Musk refusing to name any of the parties from whom he has allegedly "secured funding" after launching a huge short squeeze in Tesla yesterday with his now infamous Tesla "going private" series of tweets, it was only a matter of time before the regulators - who have so far stubbornly ignored Tesla - started asking questions.

According to the WSJ, that time is now, because the SEC has inquired with Tesla about Elon Musk’s announcement that he may take the company private "and whether his claim was factual", or in other words, whether Musk lied when he said he had secured financing.

The regulator also asked why the disclosure which kept people glued to twitter for hours was made on the social network rather than in a regulatory filing, and whether the firm believes the announcement complies with investor-protection rules.

According to the WSJ, the SEC inquiries - which originated from its San Francisco office so it will be relatively easy to visit the Fremont office - suggest Tesla could come under an enforcement investigation if regulators develop evidence that Musk’s tweet was misleading or false.

“Frankly, the bigger issue is going to be whether the information is correct or not,” said Ira Matetsky, a partner at Ganfer & Shore in New York, who outlined questions the SEC might ask. “When Musk tweeted this, was he saying this was something that was definitely going to happen? Something that might happen? How would a reasonable investor interpret that and was it consistent with the facts as they existed at the time?” - BBG

And while it is mostly semantics, so far it remains unclear if the SEC had opened a formal enforcement investigation based on the answers it received from the company. 

"To put that out unless he absolutely has financing secured and is ready to make the bid that could be market manipulation," Keith Higgins, a Ropes & Gray partner who formerly led the SEC’s corporation finance unit, told Bloomberg. "He could be in big trouble if that turns out not to have been true."

The biggest risk for Musk is if regulators find that he made a statement only intending to goose his company’s share price, or as he likes to put it, "crush the shorts." Under US securities law, companies and corporate officers can (and will) be held liable for making misstatements or omitting information that shareholders need to make informed investment decisions.

In his email to employees on Tuesday, instead of detailing the circumstances around the "pre-commited" going private deal, Musk blamed short sellers and other pressures public markets put on companies as factors in announcing he wanted to take the company private.

However, that's not enough.

As we noted earlier, one potential problem is that merely the intent of a "going private" transaction, triggers rule 13E-3, which requires the company to file a Schedule 13E-3 with the SEC as well as furnish the required disclosures to the company's shareholders. Note: the rule is triggered in either case, even if the intent to go private is ultimately unsuccessful.

13E-3 or no, the SEC will demand to know just what is going on, what the Board knew and when - recall it stated today that it was made aware of Elon's plans last week and yet there was no mention of this in the 10-Q's "Recent Developments" section - and if Musk was even sober and rational when he tweeted what he did.

Meanwhile, Tom Farley, the former President of the NYSE, had some advice for the SEC:

Dear @SEC_News, this is an easy one: ask TSLA to show you the agreement(s) signed by their funding source(s) by 5pm EST that demonstrates the funding is “secured” and “certain.” If there is no such agreement, require a statement by 5:30pm. Inspire market confidence.

And while Musk has historically been extremely cavalier with his tweeting, this time it could cost: if found guilty of stock fraud, he would surely be on the hook for billions as the lawsuits start piling in, with the worst case scenario giving Musk an unlimited amount of time to tweet to his heart's content... from prison.

The stock dropped back under $370 on the news, and is rapidly approaching the $359.8676 conversion price of the $920 million of convertible bond due March 2019, which some have speculated is the entire reason behind the "going private" spectacle.

Wall Street Salivates After Elon Musk Floats Taking Tesla Private

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/08/08/busi ... -musk.html



Translation: No one in this field knows anything about the financing for this alleged deal and the only way to pull it off is the route that penny stocks take.


Some senior executives at top Wall Street banks, including JPMorgan Chase and Citigroup, did not hear about Mr. Musk’s idea until his tweet sent Tesla shares soaring shortly after noon on Tuesday, according to people close to the banks. Some bankers grumbled on Wednesday that they had not even been able to get Tesla executives to return their phone calls, much less explain the company’s plans.



Some of Tesla’s big institutional investors — including Fidelity and Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund — also were blindsided by Mr. Musk’s comments, according to people close to those companies.


Why in the heck would institutional investors want to be dragged into illiquid, opaque and unaccountable markets? This makes no sense.

          Re: The Reference Frame: Market manipulation: psychopath Musk remains at large      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The issue is whether Musk has actually lined up the financing. He did make this claim and, if is egregiously untrue, he is in serious trouble. I'm guessing that he will be OK but it is a guess.

We are already seeing lots of Model 3s scooting around the SF Bay Area. Tesla gives delivery priority to Model S and Model X owners. Musk is also doing a lot more than recovering the upper stage of Space X rockets. The first stage has been redesigned for recovery without significant disassembly between shots. Launches are going to get a lot cheaper. His nonsense about colonizing Mars is, of course, bullshit. He produces a lot of bullshit but his accomplishments are breathtaking.


          Re: The Reference Frame: Market manipulation: psychopath Musk remains at large      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

My guess is that Elon, along with the Tesla Board of Directors thought all of this through beforehand and that he is safe from criminal prosecution because a conviction requires proof beyond a reasonable doubt. Civil lawsuits are a different matter, of course. He is a lot more vulnerable there but that is survivable.

The Model 3 is turning out to be, in many ways, a better car than the Model S at about half the price. Elon promises to be producing10,000 cars per week by the end of 2018 and I think he will come close. He is also planning car factories in Europe and in China along with a second US plant.

I am raising my estimate of the probability of Tesla's success in becoming a major automobile producer form 10-20% up to 20-40%. I do not plan to invest, however. I am far more risk averse than Musk.

Основатель американской компании Tesla Илон Маск заявил, что намерен выкупить находящиеся в свободном обращении акции по цене $420 за штуку, когда стоимость акций составляла $340.

Маск хочет перевести компанию полностью в частное владение и заявил, что нашел средства для выкупа акций. По расчетам агентства Bloomberg, ему придется потратить $66 млрд, что станет крупнейшим в истории финансируемым выкупом акций.

Основной причиной выкупа Маск назвал необходимость фокусироваться на долгосрочных планах, тогда как публичная компания вынуждена реагировать на краткосрочные вызовы.

Стоимость акций компании (NASDAQ: TSLA) достигла максимальных значений с сентября 2017 года, отметки $387 за одну акцию.

          ¿Qué fabricante gana más con cada coche vendido?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
bentley-201849052_1.jpg

Imagen del concesionario de Bentley en Barcelona

Seguramente que más de una vez te has parado a pensar -o se te ha pasado por la cabeza- cuánto ganan realmente las marcas Premium o las de auténtico lujo por cada unidad vendida, teniendo en cuenta los precios que algunos lucen en los concesionarios y revistas.

Pero, al mismo tiempo, pensarás que con semejantes cantidades que algunos afortunados pueden abonar, las marcas no perderán dinero. Si lo has pensado, déjame que te diga que te equivocas; a algunas también les cuesta el dinero. Y si no que se lo pregunten a los británicos de Bentley o a los americanos de Tesla, ya que un estudio realizado por un profesor de economía aplicada de la Universidad de Duisburg, Alemania, demuestra que los fabricantes también pierden dinero.

El estudio de Ferdinand Dudenhöffer calcula el beneficio de algunos fabricantes concluyendo que Ferrari gana bastante bien, pero Tesla y Bentley perdieron en la primera mitad de 2018. La regla de oro que algunos se imaginan, la de "coches grandes, ganancias grandes" no es del todo correcta y falla más que una escopeta de feria en algunas ocasiones. De hecho, en la primera mitad del año en curso, Ferrari logró 69.000 euros de beneficio operativo por cada unidad vendida teniendo en cuenta un precio de 280.000 €.

ganancias-fabricantes-201849052_3.jpg

Tabla comparativa de cálculo del EBIT de los fabricantes de lujo y Premium y margen de ganancias del estudio del Profesor Ferdinand Dudenhöffer

El estudio se basa en el margen EBIT, el beneficio antes de impuestos e intereses, calculándose la diferencia entre el cose y el precio de venta y en base al precio promedio de un vehículo determinado de cada fabricante, de forma que los precios medios en Mercedes y Audi son de aproximadamente, 3.300 euros, mientras que en BMW el precio medio se encuentra en poco más de 3.000 euros y con un EBIT del 9,2 por ciento; muy poca diferencia. Pero fíjate en la tabla del análisis, porque Tesla perdió 11.000 euros por unidad vendida.

En el caso de la firma deportiva, ya sabíamos desde hacía tiempo de la rentabilidad de los productos de Porsche. Y es que los SUV y sus deportivos generaron 91.000 euros en ingresos y casi 17.000 euros de beneficio por unidad vendida, por lo que el margen de ganancia es particularmente grande. Frente a los alemanes por excelencia, otra deportiva con herencia es Maserati; los italianos quedan muy lejos de la prima hermana del "Cavallino Rampante" pero no pierden dinero porque las ganancias son positivas con unos 5.000 euros

Flagrante es el caso de los modelos de Jaguar y Land Rover, que solo llega a 800 euros por modelo, en lo que tiene que ver mucho las enormes inversiones que los británicos están llevando a cabo en materia de desarrollo de nuevas plataformas, motores y en la construcción y equipamiento de la nueva planta de Eslovaquia. El otro británico, mucho más exclusivo, perdió dinero; con un precio medio de 165.000 euros en los modelos de Bentley, se han calculado pérdidas de 17.000 euros por vehículo vendido, lo cual se achaca desde la marca al "enorme" esfuerzo que se está realizando para la electrificación de la gama.

Last year I made a case that Intel (the owner of Mobileye) was a better car company than Tesla.

Remember when we had to pay for credit scores? It wasn’t all that long ago. Now it seems everybody wants us to check our scores all the time, for free. Why? But first: It's been 160 days since President Donald Trump announced his steel and aluminum tariffs, kicking off the trade war. As White House chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow told us last week, the effect on real gross domestic product has been minimal. That's true, but it doesn't mean people aren't feeling the effects — and the longer the trade war goes on, the more pain people are gonna feel. We'll look at the micro and the macro today. Plus: Elon Musk's tweet yesterday about taking Tesla private was a big deal, but until he shows us the money, it's only theoretical. We'll talk about the implications (and the legality) of the announcement.

          THE CRIMES AGAINST MANKIND AND NICOLA TESLA’ GENIUS CONTINUE      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

I have been a huge fan of the super genius Nicola Tesla for many years. He was a man far beyond his time who could have advanced society far beyond where we are today.

If he had been backed by our government as well as private investors  and allowed to develop the huge amount of incredible inventions he designed the world would be far more advanced as well as a better place to live.

One of the  most important inventions that Tesla developed  for mankind was his free energy system which he not only invented but had nearly finished building on Long Island New York when the greedy and power criminals Thomas Edison and the banker J P Morgan not only stopped him but dismantled and destroyed the tower and machine which would have been the start of free energy for the entire world

If Nicola Tesla had been allowed, funded and aided in his pursuit of creating a free energy power system this world would now be a far more advanced better planet. Instead for personal reasons of wanting wealth and power Thomas Edison and JP Morgan not only stopped this from happening they drove this incredible genius in to poverty and black balled him by being bullies keeping the world dark and set back hundreds of years.

People laugh when I say this yet I remain faithful to the statement if there were ever two men who I would have punched over and over in the face it would be Edison and Morgan. They should have been thrown in jail to rot for life for crimes against humanity -  for what they did to this world for private wealth and power.

I cannot give an exact number to the death toll of those who have died over the last one hundred years or so due to the search for energy to keep the world moving, lights glowing and winters where homes are warm and dinners cooking on stoves all over the world.  I do know  most of those deaths  can be directed  towards those who stopped the genius Nicola Tesla from finishing his work. Our government of course is also directly responsible for this crime against mankind and still continue to this day in continuing to keep Tesla’s free energy knowledge hidden and this world in terrible turmoil.

The number of people who have died in mining for coal, digging for oil, or simply dying from extreme cold without the ability to heat their homes over the last century is enormous.

Let us not forget all the wars fought over the need for oil. Add the fact terrorism is at least partly if not completely funded by way of the profits from the worlds urgent needs for energy and we have lists of millions of dead bodies covering this world all due to need for energy . Now would anyone like to join me while I punch Edison and Morgan’s nasty noses across their selfish greedy faces?

That is only part of my anger which brings me to the main question that I just do not understand. That question is why  are we still fighting for oil and where is Tesla's free energy system and why are we not building and using it ? How can that question contine to  remains without answer to this very day.?Wars continue people die however we still remain without Nicola Tessa’s free energy system. I do not believe for a moment it is still hidden or lost. I do not believe for a second that with the knowledge known about this system that our scientists today could not finish Tesla’s free energy system which would free the world.

Yes I know the story that it is a big mystery to who it was that entered Nicola Tesla's small dwelling in New York City on the day he died ,alone and penniless,  and supposedly removed all his papers and invention details to never be seen again. Of course I do not buy this at all and feel if we are able to explore space we should be able to find the plans for the free energy system  he built on Long Island and try to continue along with Tessa’s pursuits of free energy.

If we can give a private company millions if not billions of dollars to poke around in space why not do the same and give a chunk of that money to those who could continue with Tessa’s free energy system.  I truly feel our needs during these trying times here on earth now out way our need to explore space. The amount of life saved as well as a knife in the heart of the flow of money that funds terrorism would be huge with Tesla’s free energy system in place.

          UFO CONSPIRACIES FROM THE SHADOWY SIDE OF THE UNIVERSE      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

“The Conspiracy Journal” is a venerable publication that has gone unnoticed by a huge swathe of readers who most likely would enjoy receiving a free subscription, either of the print or online editions. The print edition, which is sent through the mail several times a year, is published by Timothy Green Beckley of Global Communications and covers a wide range of conspiracy-related topics, from the UFO cover-up to government mind control efforts to covert political intrigue of all kinds. The online chores are handled by Mr. Tim R. Swartz, who, in addition to being the author of “The Lost Journals of Nikola Tesla,” co-hosts his own weekly ipod show, “The Outer Edge.” 

Click here to enlarge top photo.

            For the purposes of this article, we concern ourselves only with Beckley’s editorial expertise and his longtime preference for printed publications as opposed to the online “blogazine” types, which are just not his “cup of tea” – with or without the saucers!

But don’t despair that such a gem of “punk/alternative paranormal journalism” has gotten by you somehow. Beckley has recently released a collection of past articles from the magazine and has titled it – a no brainer – “Conspiracy Journal Reader: The Darkest, Deepest Secrets,” which features some of the best material published there by an impressive roster of writers. There are a total of 37 articles in the book, any one of which will fascinate those already predisposed to believe that something wicked is lurking around the next proverbial corner that has the intention of controlling and manipulating an unsuspecting populace. Those few who are still “unsuspecting” will quickly revise that thinking after reading “Conspiracy Journal Reader.”

COSMIC TOP SECRET

For example, writer William Hamilton III (author of “Cosmic Top Secret” and “Time Travel Now”) contributes an article called “Area 51 Breeding Tanks.” He begins by recounting a story told to him by abductee Christa Tilton, who claims that in 1987 she was taken by two small grey aliens to a hillside location, where she encountered a man dressed in a military-type jumpsuit. She was led through a series of computerized checkpoints and traveled on some kind of “transit vehicle” to an area where she was weighed and issued an identification card. At that point, she was told they had just entered Level One of a seven-level underground facility. After being moved to Level Five, she saw alien craft and greys as well as large tanks with computerized gauges. 

Hamilton, of course, is just warming up. He also tells the tale of a man, given the pseudonym Thomas C., who was at one time a security officer in the facility and could no longer cope with the disturbing things he had seen there. He decided to leave his job and take some evidence with him. He took over 30 photos, collected documents and removed a security camera video tape that had recorded aliens and government personnel working side-by-side. He made five copies of everything and then concealed the originals.

Now it was time to flee and go into hiding. But when he went home to pick up his wife and son, he found a van and government agents waiting for him. His wife and son had already been kidnapped. A fellow worker named K. Lomas had alerted the authorities, and Thomas C. was now in even deeper trouble. The agents demanded the return of the evidence Thomas C. had collected in exchange for getting his wife and child back. When it became apparent that his family would be used in biological experiments and not returned unharmed, he decided to “get lost,” as Hamilton puts it. 

 After explaining some of Thomas C.’s background, which included several years working as a security officer for the Air Force and the Rand Corporation, Hamilton   discusses more of what Thomas C. saw at the underground facility, located in Dulce, New Mexico. Thomas C. alleges that there were over 18,000 greys at Dulce, as well as reptilian humanoids there. A tube shuttle system connecting Dulce to Area 51 in Nevada and another facility in Page, Arizona, is also part of the package. Dulce’s Level Six is privately called “Nightmare Hall,” where genetic experiments are conducted on fish, seals, birds and mice, producing creatures that are vastly altered from their original forms. Even more chillingly, there are multi-armed and multi-legged humans and several cages and vats of humanoid, bat-like monstrosities, some as tall as seven feet, to be found on Level Six. 

Things reached a climax for Thomas C. when he saw humans in cages on Level Seven, many of whom were dazed or drugged and crying out for help. 

“We were told they were hopelessly insane,” Thomas C. said, “and involved in high-risk drug tests to cure insanity. We were told to never speak to them at all.”

DEEP INSIDE THE LAIR OF THE SERPENT RACE                                              

Even as one shudders to think this story could be true, “Conspiracy Journal Reader” moves on to other equally bizarre subjects. I have an article of my own reprinted in the book about Zulu shaman Credo Mutwa, and my primary source was an interview from “Spectrum Magazine” conducted by Rick Martin. 

The late Harvard psychiatrist, Dr. John Mack, in his book “Passport To The Cosmos” (1999), devoted a chapter to Credo and his lifelong encounters with friendly, guardian spirits who were quite unlike the greys and reptilians Credo would deal with later as an adult. Nevertheless, Credo would seem like an unlikely source for information on conspiracy theory, but the Zulu culture from which he sprang takes for granted the existence of reptilian aliens/shape-shifters, though the place where the reptilians originate is still unknown to them. 

“It is said that these creatures feed on us human beings,” Credo said, “and that they at one time challenged God himself to war because they wanted full control of the universe. And God fought a terrible battle against them and He defeated them, injured them, and forced them to hide in cities underground. They hide in deep cavities underground because they are always feeling cold. In these cavities, we are told, there are huge fires which are kept going by slaves – human, zombie-like slaves.”

These defeated reptiles are not capable of eating solid food and must survive on human blood. They also “feed” on the power or energy that is generated by human warfare and violence and the terror such bloodshed induces. 

“There ARE such creatures,” Credo said, “and the sooner skeptics among us face up to this fact, the better it shall be. Why is humankind not progressing? Why are we running around in a great circle of self-destruction and mutual destruction? People are basically good; I believe this. People don’t want to start wars. People don’t want to destroy the world in which they stay, but there are creatures, or there is power that is driving we human beings toward self-annihilation. And the sooner we recognize this, the better.”   

Later in the interview with Rick Martin, Credo dropped quite a bombshell. 

“Far too many people,” Credo said, “fall into the temptation of looking upon these ‘aliens’ as supernatural creatures. They are just solid creatures, sir. They are like us; and furthermore, I’m going to make a statement here which will come as a surprise: the Grey aliens, sir, are edible. Their flesh is protein, just as animal flesh on Earth is, but anyone who ingests Grey alien flesh comes very, very close to death. I nearly did.” 

He next told the story of how the alien flesh came into his hands. 

“You see,” he said, “in Lesotho there is a mountain called Laribe; it is called Crying Stone Mountain. On several occasions, in the last 50 years or so, alien craft have crashed against this mountain. One such incident was reported in the newspapers not so long ago. An African who believes that these creatures are gods, when they find the corpse of a dead Grey alien, they take it, put in a bag, and drag it into the bush, where they dismember it and ritually eat it. But some of them die as a result of ingesting the thing.” 

Credo said that a friend of his from Lesotho gave him the flesh from what the friend called a “sky god.” 

“I was skeptical,” Credo said. “He gave me a small lump of grey, rather dry stuff which, he said, was the flesh. And he and I and his wife ritually ate this thing one night.” 

Credo did not in fact die from sharing this otherworldly dinner, but it is not possible to tell the rest of the story in the space available here. Those who wish a crash course in what Credo believes and in reptilian aliens in general should be steered in the direction of a book by Commander X and Branton. “Reality of the Serpent Race and the Subterranean Origin of UFOs” reveals more from the fertile mind of the Zulu shaman, who is now well into his eighties and has been confronting the reptilian “menace” for as long as he can remember. 

Not surprisingly, Credo confirmed one of the pet theories of his mentor David Icke, namely that many global leaders are really shape-shifting reptilians – people like Queen Elizabeth, George Bush, Bill Clinton and many other elite rulers who have long been associated with the bloodline of the Illuminati, a secret society said to be in charge of political and economic matters worldwide. When pressed for more information, Credo seemed uneasy, as if there might be serious, dangerous consequences for talking about such things. 

Part II in this series continues tomorrow Saturday, February 8, 2014!  http://ufodigest.com/article/conspiracy-journal-0208

           比起技术储备,特斯拉真不如传统车企       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

前些天在微博上又看到了「特斯拉和传统车企谁更强」的争论,双方观点还是原来的样子:

特斯拉支持者:特斯拉在纯电动技术储备上已经领先传统车企了。

传统车企支持者:传统车企一旦发力,分分钟秒掉特斯拉。

传统车企支持者阵营有一个很强力的理论依据,就是专利数量。网友「Sabercon」在微博里详细列出了这一论据。

网友Sabercon的微博

谁也不敢断言什么事情,但是专利究竟对于商业竞争的决定性意义究竟有多大,这个问题似乎并没有标准答案。一个很显然的案例是,苹果的专利数量就比不过IBM、三星和微软,而且差距还挺大的。

专利的决定性有多大

我们Google一下过去几年科技公司新增专利数量的状况,IBM、三星等等公司也一直都要远远高于苹果,事实上在任何单项的领域,比如AI、折叠屏幕等等具体的技术方向上,苹果的专利数量也一直都是低于他的竞争对手的。

专利数量没有任何优势,但苹果在科技领域的地位是毋庸置疑的。特斯拉之所以看起来并没有很费力就在市值上超越了很多传统车企,很大一部分原因也恰恰就因为苹果作为先例摆在那里,想象空间太大了。

专利当然很了不起,但它终归只是组成最终答案的条件之一,它的决定性并没有想象中那么恐怖。

吴伯凡老师曾经提到过很多大公司与专利有关的经营思路。其一是松下幸之助的「水库哲学」,大体是说企业要时时刻刻做好资源的储备,便永远有可期待的未来;其二是诺基亚前任CEO奥利拉上任时谈到面对困境的解决方案,「诺基亚有好多未打磨的钻石,我要做的事情就是把这些钻石打磨得璀璨耀眼」。

松下幸之助的「水库」和奥利拉的「钻石」所指的或许都并不是专利,不过他们整体上的思路大体是一致的,他们相信企业资源储备的积累是极为重要的,并且在面对变化时,这些储备可以让他们立于不败之地。

巨大的专利储备在很大程度上就类似于这种储备资源的思路。从本质上,专利储备就像面对未来的准备工作,准备工作再怎么充分终归也只是准备工作,它并不能证明最终的结果就一定好。就好比一个人有很高的学历,而且获得学位的专业非常广泛,但这并不能证明这个人的就会取得很高的成就,最终他还是要在具体的工作中去证明自己。

今年六月份,苹果和三星之间持续七年的专利诉讼案达成和解,后者最终向前者赔偿数亿美元。专利储备占据领先的三星是这场诉讼的被告方,诉讼结果也是他们吃了大亏,但诉讼具体涉及到的专利项目并非技术上的,而是针对的产品设计与系统图标等等内容,都是直接体现在产品上的。

苹果更在意产品。特斯拉成了领跑者,依据也是他们的产品,Model S、Model X、Model 3在市场上证明了自己。

专利思路与产品思路

看一下新造车公司的产品投放节奏。

特斯拉2003年成立,08年开始销售Roadster,12年Model S开始交付,15年Model X开始交付,2017年Model 3开始交付。蔚来2014年11月成立,ES8今年夏天开始交付。威马2015年12月成立,EX5刚刚公布了配置单,预计今年下半年开始交付。

传统车企比较成熟的纯电动量产车包括日产聆风、宝马i3、捷豹i-Pace等等,更多的传统车企还没有成熟的全新纯电动产品出现。

这里就不讨论新造车公司和传统车企对纯电动车型的理解了,比如究竟是一整块触控屏还是实体按键逐步过渡之类的,这些都不去谈了。我们只说产品投放的节奏,传统车企显然是太慢了一些,即便是我们上述谈到的那些已经被推出出来的产品,甚至聆风还在全球范围有很高的销量,传统车企对待它们的态度仍然是非常保守的,聆风到现在也没进入中国,更不要说这些产品和传统燃油车相比几乎可以忽略不计的营销投入和产能分配了。

从各自角度来讲,特斯拉和传统车企都在做他们唯一可以做的事情。

特斯拉为代表的新造车公司如果不快速推出产品去争取市场回报,那么他们就连活下去的资格也没有。他们必须用产品说话,遇到问题解决问题。李书福(开始造车时)和李想说过类似的两句话,前者说「(想做什么)就去做呗」、后者说「遇到什么事儿我不想那么多『该怎么办』,我就去做就是了」。对于新造车公司,先做技术储备再推出产品是不可能的事情。

传统车企的决策依据则不是企业家精神而是股东的意志,盈利才是最优先要考虑的东西,技术储备恰恰就是排在第二位的超级重要的考虑因素,其意义在于保证企业可以在未来也有可靠的盈利能力。

特斯拉的股东是因为相信马斯克才投资,而传统车企的股东是看到了真金白银的收入才投资。投资理念不一样,接受的经营思路当然也不一样。

事实上我们回顾一下舆论对特斯拉的否认,其口径其实一直在变化:一开始说Model S只是个「噱头大于实质的玩具,触控屏不实用、工艺粗糙」;之后说「烧钱没有未来」;再到现在则是「电动车已经一百年历史了,传统车企不做只是因为赔钱,一旦发力分分钟秒掉特斯拉」。

其实每个阶段都对了一部分,作为新造车公司的特斯拉工艺粗糙、烧钱这都是不可避免的事情。

但是是不是能分分钟秒掉特斯拉却不一定。我很理解大众文化中对于强者的「静如处子、动若脱兔」的想象,在大众的观念里,强者不会轻举妄动,而是在冷静的分析局势之后一击致命。这种思路也未必是错的,但正如它也未必是对的一样。

部分传统车企很有可能是在观察,等待新造车公司跑通一条路之后再跟进,这样可以最大程度去规避风险,甚至可以避免很多在他们看来不必要的损失,毕竟现在大规模开发生产销售电动车对他们来说是赔钱的买卖。

甚至在一些传统车企看来,连最基本的技术路线都还是不确定的:电动车是不是真的有未来,氢燃料电池会不会才是真正的答案,混动是否才是主流,汽油车有没有可能复活,这些都是会被考虑的问题。

未来的汽车究竟什么样子还不清楚,不妨等等,再确认一下,找准了大势所趋的方向再说。

真有不可逆的大势所趋吗?

电视产业曾经有过一次等离子和液晶两种趋势的选择。松下、长虹选了等离子;三星、夏普选了液晶。最终等离子落败,液晶成为主流。

关于手机,有一种声音认为翻盖手机和小屏实体键盘手机现在并非没有市场,但是整个行业的趋势被所有厂商的行动给踏平了,大家都在生产智能大屏虚拟按键手机,实体按键智能手机就算有市场也没有厂商去做了。

关于等离子为何败给液晶,说法其实有很多,但我个人最认同的说法是,液晶阵营的参与者战斗力太强了。等离子本身就只能作用于大屏,而液晶是大小通吃,因此后者阵营中的参与者更多,前者阵营中,松下是当时的领头羊,长虹只有国内市场,而三星、夏普的发展欲望更强,动作更果敢。整个产业的结构在动态环境中,因为前期不同阵营企业的投入力度和节奏被带入了液晶的方向上,产业链的发展因此更迅速,技术成本等等条件都有更快的升级。

大屏智能手机的案例说明了同样的问题,苹果把市场带进了智能大屏虚拟按键的产品形态上,增量市场用户投票给了iPhone,传统手机理论上可能存在的市场被漠视掉也是顺理成章。

所以说,趋势真的像是物理公式一样,是「天何言哉」般的存在吗?或许所谓的趋势,其实是一个动态的选择过程,谁最先做出了漂亮的产品,谁最先占领了市场,产业链和其他厂商便跟进上去,一起造就了一个「不可逆的大势所趋」吧。

所谓改变世界,说的不就是扭转乾坤、造就一个新的趋势吗?

纯电动的确不一定就比氢燃料电池车和混动车好。它们都不过是车的驱动方式而已,只是产品结构里的一环而非全部。但是特斯拉最先用纯电动的方式创造了最酷的产品,而且正在激进地快速扩张市场,带动了其他厂商和产业链的跟进发展,所以现在纯电动已经拿到了领跑位置。

氢燃料电池车并不是没有机会,但是如果仍旧只有丰田一家在做,而且还是用一种边观察、边积累的方式,那么它就没有胜算,它的升级会很缓慢,而纯电动的升级却会是指数级的。

特斯拉愿意开放自己的专利给竞争者使用,但传统车企又不傻,怎么会做帮对方造势的事情呢。反过来说,如果只是拥有专利,却眼看着市场和产业被竞争对手牵着走,专利的价值也就永远只是在纸面上的可能性了。
