TSLA Jan'25 Options & The Current State of TSLA

Introduction I haven't updated in a long time. This is partly because other things in my life have taken priority over Tesla, but also because  My Tesla Investment Thesis 3  still speaks for itself, and I expect it will for the foreseeable future. It's unlikely that anything will change about Tesla's long-term outlook, until perhaps we see more specifics surrounding AMaaS' exact business model, financials, and rollout that will allow me to make more precise predictions, or until there is more clarity surrounding Tesla Bot's potential, business model, timeline, and financials. At the end of that blog post I noted three things I'll be paying attention to going forward: Big changes to Tesla's future outlook that change my long-term outlook on the stock. Options opportunities to take advantage of. A stock price of $3,000 (pre-split, so now $1,000). Based on the research in that blog I decided I would no longer be 100% TSLA at that price, but instead I'd be 9

TSLA Options: Are Call Spreads the Future?

I'm going to keep this post very brief. I may have finished my MBA, but there are a lot of things in my life that I'd like to spend time on that are not Tesla and investing. Nonetheless, I'd like to take some time to share this research I've done over the past week into Tesla options. More specifically, research into Tesla call option spreads. I've never been a huge fan of them in the past, because I've always calculated my options returns in # of shares. I still plan to be fully invested in TSLA for the foreseeable future as I explained in detail in My Tesla Investment Thesis 3 , so any deviation in investment strategy from owning 100% TSLA common stock, I need to compare to that strategy, so I need to calculate the return on option trades in # of shares. I've talked about this in more detail in My TSLA Investment Strategy , but for the purpose of this post you need to know that a large run-up in the stock beyond the shorted call option means your trade'

My Tesla Investment Thesis 3: The Complete 2021 TSLA Investing Guide

Introduction Quite some time has passed since my last blog post. Part of the reason for this is the fact that I've been busy with my MBA program. Although I'm only about halfway through the 1-year program, in terms of effort/courses I've completed closer to 80% of the degree. Currently I just finished my summer break, which is why I have had enough spare time to finish the massive project that this post has turned out to be. However, the other reason as to why a lot of time has passed since my last post has to do with the nature of my posts. Just about everything I've written in this blog has flown forth from research and thoughts that came naturally as a (Tesla) investor, and mid 2019 to the end of 2020 was quite a special period in that regard. Although I already read most Tesla news daily from when I first invested in 2015 until mid 2019, the 18 months following my first Tesla Investment Thesis post I spent far more time researching and thinking about Tesla than I h
