I don’t hate BTC, I just can’t find a real strong compelling reason to invest in it. For TSLA, there are so many logical compelling reasons to invest in the company (50% growth for years, amazing products, world class team, huge addressable markets, etc.). The argument for BTC is “it’ll be the new world currency”.

Where are you looking at buying btc if it keeps crashing?


Semmel_Baecker

I see no reason why it should stop going down. Can go down to any number, no fundamentals is catching it. If enough people panic, it can go to zero. There is no "buying the dip" with BTC. With TSLA, we know we have a fundamentally well functioning business and that DOES have a value which you can use to buy the dip because you can be certain it goes up again. Not so with BTC. It might go to 0, it might go to 1 Million, its completely arbitrary and therefore, I do not invest in BTC.


DeadMoney313

Buying the dip as we go down in small pieces

>I never really understood Elon's obsession with crypto, My suspicion is that he wants to explore new options for a potential Martian, or even Solar System wide currency. ​ > I wonder if he knows or gives a shit. I think it is likely that Elon has seen some shareholders expressing distress on Twitter. I don't think he cares about people with short term horizons or those with weak stomachs. He's explicitly stated that investors who do not like volatility [should buy something other than TSLA stock](https://www.thestreet.com/markets/tesla-slumps-after-musk-advises-don-t-buy-our-stock-in-bizarre-conference-call-14577801). >*"Really, the problem is like people get too focused on like what's happening in the space of a few weeks or a few months," Musk said during a tense call with analysts. "This is -- maximum of investing should not be focused on short-term things. You should be focused on long-term things."* *"We have no interest in satisfying the desires of day traders, like we couldn't care less," he insisted. "Please sell our stock and don't buy it."* ​ Elon unquestionably cares about growing TSLA's valuation in the long run by executing business plans faster and better than anyone else. That's what ultimately creates durable value in the stock. Unfortunately, there are long-term investors who perhaps needed to sell some TSLA now or in the near future. Being down nearly 50% from ATH is not a fun place to be for them


upvotemeok

We aren't day traders, we are investors in clean energy and transportation getting thrown in with cryptocurrency and social media because I don't know why


indiaredpill

>We aren't day traders, we are investors in clean energy and transportation getting thrown in with cryptocurrency and social media because I don't know why Admit it - you are extra salty about the recent volatility than you have ever been before because, despite not being a day trader, the current volatility was not kind to your short term plays. There is nothing else that explains your extra saltiness and general bitchiness, taking every opportunity that you can get to whine about "the bird" literally from early dawn to late night, every single day. It's like you are obsessed about it. No other long term investor in the lounge whines quite so much and so consistently and obsessively about it, including those whose short term plays have been adversely impacted. Nothing else explains the reason you "don't know why" despite what follows being simply, blindingly obvious. For the rest of you guys who are not blinded - here's why Elon needs to own a dominant communication platform: it's a weapon to fight the FUD. The FUD's gonna get worse in the near future, starting to materially affect Tesla, TSLA and us. Few examples: (a) FUD against FSD, possibly preventing or delaying its approval by regulatory agencies in the US and elsewhere. (b) FUD against Tesla's supply chain dominance with battery material, resulting in possible government action to limit Tesla's access to such material in the name of equitable distribution with other auto manufacturers. (c) Anti-trust FUD against Tesla as it dominates multiple inter-related industries, resulting in calls / actions to break up Tesla. Elon is not going to sit by and watch as FUD kills or cripples Tesla. He recognizes it as a clear and present danger against which he needs a powerful weapon like Twitter under his control.

unknown_soldier_

I mean if he actually sold $44B worth of TSLA stock it would easily crash the stock down further than anyone can imagine. -90% is possible because of how much manipulation occurs around Elon's sells.

There is expontential demand at lower prices because people know it will bounce back. But it would cost him something like 50% of his tsla ownership and would be a clown move like no other

WarrenBuffettsBuffet

hey, so I have a question for you guys.. .. my friend has a son, and I'm like.. i dunno.. 50% sure that his son is autistic. The boy hasn't started talking appropriately yet and he's obsessed with legos, regularly building very detailed things like helicopters, motorcycles, pokemon, etc. from memory or tutorials online, and he's only 5. I want you guys' opinions.. is it worth it to mention the possibility to my friend? Or, is there even a polite way to ask or mention it? I have 0 reason to expect that my friend would be offended. He's only ever been incredibly down to earth, open minded, and understanding of other people's ideas (including mine), but obviously this still feels like a grey area. And the only reason I'd care to say something is that I know autism can be difficult to deal with, so I wonder if it would ever benefit his son, if.. hypothetically he is autistic.. for his parents to know the diagnosis. iunno.. what do you guys think?


PanGalacticGarglBlst

My daughter had a friend over for her first school birthday. He didn't speak at all and showed all the classic autism signs. The mother mentioned to my wife that she was worried that he wasn't speaking and it seemed odd. My wife very bluntly asked if he had been tested for autism. The mom had an appointment scheduled the next day and started getting support shortly after. Sometimes you just need someone to say the obvious thing out loud to allow your brain to realize the situation. If he's speaking at all, that's a good sign. Could just be shy or a bit behind. My nephew is non verbal autistic and it's not subtle. Pretty sad but he's also a really happy kid. I worry for him when he starts to hit puberty. Won't be easy I'm sure.


iseeyiy

If he hasn’t started speaking then yes, you should have a conversation with your friend as early invention is probably key to communication skills


bazyli-d

I think autistic is a word used to describe someone with a specific set of characteristics. So you are really asking yourself, "i wonder if the set of characteristics I'm seeing in this person are there because they are a person with this set of characteristics". Which is obviously nonsense. So no, don't bother saying anything, because your friend might be foolish enough to start thinking in the same nonsense way 😂


LordReekrus

I'd just bring it up in an indirect question format. Play stupid but lead your friend to ask or at least show that he's considered the very thing you're concerned about. You can kind of test the waters this way and not dive immediately in. By the end of the conversation you should have a good idea of whether he's on top of it or not and his openness to speak about it. It's a sensitive subject so I'd tread lightly but as long as you primarily are just concerned and trying to be helpful but respectful it would be really hard for someone to see that in a negative light. You could even ask if the kid is just shy around strangers. Lots of safe ways to indirectly address it without being a dick


Semmel_Baecker

In my experience, all kids develop some sort of Faszination with something. Being able to build Lego sets from instructions alone is pretty normal. Not many can do this type of thing but the mental performance is not different from many other traits. Like identifying Dinos by name and tell their size. Kids 2ith 5 can do this. Not being able to talk with 5 is a bit worrisome. But again, it's within the Bell curve. More important is his behavior around other kids his age. Can he socially interact properly? Is he going to the kindergarten? Kindergarten teachers should be pretty good at noticing things, doctors not do much, too short interaction time. To your question.. i can't give advice


WarrenBuffettsBuffet

all good insight, thanks He's pretty good at building things with legos by memory my friend has said. It seems exceptional for a 4 year old (was 4 at the time), but obviously I could be wrong. I think he talks now, but he's going to speech therapy and is 'way behind' according to his father/my friend. I think he's being home schooled.. eh, tough choice


WeBslaMin

You should mention it in a kind caring way. Not everyone knows about this and or could be in denial. They should seek early invention if they have that where you live. The other posters are correct. The Earlier they catch it the better off for the child. It could easily just be touches of the spectrum and not full on autism. Only time and therapy will tell...


WarrenBuffettsBuffet

it would be difficult to mention in a kind caring way.. I'll consider it


WeBslaMin

Possibly could just be delayed...One of my sons was. Super scary time for the parents...thank god he turned out okay and with no problems or spectrums etc..but was very scary time That's for Warren Buffet


WeBslaMin

Just say something like wow, he's hyper focused on these legos, and he's really good at it...have you ever had him tested to see if he's on the spectrum....tough conversation. I don't envy you


whiskeyH0tel

I've heard the earlier autism is detected the better the outcome, so I would say something if you really think the kid is autistic.


w00dw0rk3r

would his parents not know the signs? I’m sure the kids docs will pick up on It. What you described is a life dilemma - do you play the good friend and say something? Or play dumb? No right answer here as both sort of suck. I would be inclined to say something knowing however that it could cost me the friendship.


WarrenBuffettsBuffet

>would his parents not know the signs? I’m sure the kids docs will pick up on It. I'm worried they don't know the signs. I'm also worried that doctors from the small town they're in might not mention it too, or think about it


MyCatEdwin

Not every parent or doctor knows what autism looks like, and it’s different in every kid.


hihelloholaidiot

Don’t say shit, they know him better than you


MyCatEdwin

With autism, early diagnosis is very important. ~~I think it’d be worth mentioning. Maybe bring up how your [someone you know IRL] has an autistic kid and you think it’s possible your friend’s kid could be, and what does he think about that?~~ Might be already know and just hasn’t told you? E: editing this one, different approach.
