Through the roof

Through the roof, what a week. 

This week has seen one of the most thrilling weeks in the Tesla stock price I can remember since taking an interest a number of years ago. 

Stock Price

I am a small investor as I don’t have a lot of money to throw at Tesla, but I am an avid fan. This week I have watched in awe at the original people who got on board of the Tesla Train back when the share price was around the $150 mark.

They bought what they could and when they could for many years hoping that one day the vision that Elon Musk kept talking about would come true. 

Well this week was that week for many. Most of the people who posted on twitter were just simple average people who put money in and now they find themselves with bigger than expected outcomes. 

Some have cashed in and made their lives easier. Other have decided to keep ongoing on the Tesla train and most have taken some and kept some. 

I too have had a small amount that has grown with them and in a small way I have enjoyed the ride. Would I have liked to have more invested? Yes of course but like I have said before I am an average guy.

The word Future with man Creating it

Tesla Future

The reality of what Tesla can achieve is always going to be one of my passions not just because of the Stock price but for the amazing technology they produce. 

Tesla is just about the split their stock so that the price is lower so that more “retail “investors can get on board. I will take advantage at that time as well and grow my footprint of how much stock I own. 

I am truly excited for what is coming down the pipeline and for Tesla going through the roof.

  • Possible inclusion in S&P
  • Tesla Battery and Investor day 
  • Release of Model Y to the rest of the Globe including Right Hand drive Countries. 
  • Cyber truck release
  • Semi Release
  • Cyber Quad (if this ever happens)
  • Roadster

These are just some of what is yet to be realized with Tesla. 

I have no doubt that Tesla will continue to innovate and grow their ideas and footprint globally. That is why I am a fan and someone who is loving the ride. 

I will in the future own a Tesla so I can share my passion for the cars and brand. 

Tesla will continue to be a company that leads the way into the future that as a kid I was always promised.

I cannot wait to see what the stock price does next and how others are rewarded for their passion and support of Tesla. I hope that it goes through the roof.

Tesla Stock Split- Part 5 is the next part of the Dave’s Journey to owning a Tesla. 

Disclaimer – This information is my own opinion. I am not a financial advisor or affiliated with any financial institution. 

Part 3 – The Entrepreneur, and Part 4 – Taking my own advice, discussed the ability to grow your income through innovation of thought and applying fresh ideas to already existing problems and finding a way to monetize that approach. 

Let’s talk about the stock split!

Stock Split

In the last week we have had a significant pivot in the way Tesla is looking at their future growth. The news which was reported by Tesla themselves outlined the Tesla Stock Split of 1:5

This stock split is not unprecedented in the world of stocks but for the average person who has not been a shareholder or involved in any company that they held shares for, this is an interesting thing to do.

The BareFoot Investor as part of their strategy, also talk’s about investing to grow wealth over time. 

The Tesla stock split is interesting by the fact that it allows those of us who are average people with little ability to spent thousands of dollars on stocks and investing, we now have the opportunity to invest just a couple of hundred dollars and become part of something we have a passion for.

For a lot of people investing in a company that aligns with their values, to help improve the environment and increase the ability for the world to transition to renewables is now reachable. 

So, what does 1:5 share split mean? 

If you as a shareholder currently with Tesla and you have a full share, then as of the 28th August you will end up owning 5 shares on the 31st August. 

The total of those 5 shares will be the same as the original share. For example, if your original share was $1500 before the stock split. After the split you will have 5 shares valued at $300 each, $1500 in total. 

So why is this Part 6 Tesla stock split part of the Dave’s journey to owning a Tesla? 

The share market is a way to grow wealth so long as you listen to professional advice, and based on your assessment of your own financial position and risks, you proceed with caution while being well informed. 

As I have said I am no financial wiz, but this is one-way I can grow wealth to achieve my goals while staying true to my values.

This is an opportunity if you like Tesla( https://www.tesla.com/en_au/ add link ) and you wish to be part of the retail investor environment, want to back a company that aligns with your values on the environment and own a cool car and technological products then look at this opportunity.

If you don’t have the money, then don’t do it! 

If you have financial difficulty this will not get you out of trouble. 

Look for opportunities that you are happy to accept the risk (loss) on. 

Investing is risky and can be fraught with peril if you don’t do your homework. 

But for me this is something I have long been working towards and I am going to try and take advantage of the opportunity before me.

I believe Tesla has a long way to go and has road map that doesn’t end with the cyber truck.

I am looking to the future and seeing that I have an opportunity to get one step closer to the end goal of owning a Tesla and helping to assist the world to transition to sustainable energy and transport. That is the ultimate goal.

The long road

long road running off in the distance and sunset

The long road, each car we drive has an impact upon our souls. 

Being 5 

As a young man I would dream of driving cars through rough terrain and battling against wind rain and hail. I would be making some amazing jumps and maneuvers that made me the best driver in the world. I was 5 after all.

My imagination ran a little wild when I was 5 going on 25 but man it was fun imagining the ultimate machine. Of course, I have never owned was is considered an ultimate machine but at least I can still imagine.

My Dad

I have always liked cars and when I was young it was any car that my dad would point out. These days those cars are considered classics or bombs, depending on their condition. But to me they are the cars of my childhood and they left a mark. 

My dad drove many cars over the years. But the most interesting and awesome of these cars came in a small package.

A classic 1975 Mini – brown. My dad had this car for many years, and he drove it into the ground. This car was always fun to be in. It was low to the ground, went superfast and had some interesting interior. 

It was a work horse of a car, but it was lots of fun and my dad loved it.

At 5 years old any car was fast, and the interior was interesting because it had very little in it other than an am radio and a gear stick that came up from the floor. The seats were vinyl and the boot opened down.

This brown mini was the first of 2 mini’s my dad owned. He also spoke of the VW beetle he owned and how it was the best car he owned. I don’t remember the beetle, but my dad has talked on and off about it over the years.

These cars had good memories for my dad and because of his impressions and love for the cars it influenced my car passions. 

My first car

My Dad allowed me to take over the second mini as my first car and I can tell you that it was a fantastic car. 

All cars have their quirks and this mini was no different. But the fun, stories and quirks made the experience all the better. 

Hanging out with friends who also drove mini’s and the good times we had catching up because of these cars made the experience leave impressions on my soul. 

When driving the mini I was close to the ground and could feel and hear every bump and roll of the car. It was small, comfortable and just downright fun. 

The long road calls back to the long road taken to get to where I am today but to the long road to own a car that makes me feel the way I did when I first owned the Mini. 

Feeding the Soul

I have test driven a Tesla model 3 and I can say without any doubt the model 3 reminds me of the original mini. Minimal interior, power when you need it and not much else. It reminds me of the passion I have for cars and the fun that I had in my early 20’s.

To say that cars leave an impression on your future decisions by taking you back to your youth is totally true. 

I loved the mini, and when I finally can own a Tesla, I too will love being taken back to my younger years to that feeling of passion, fun and exuberance. 

I hope I too can have the same influence and impact for my son when he starts to learn how to drive.

Tesla Vs Traditional

Tesla vs Traditional, there has been an ongoing worldwide discussion that highlights the challenges faced when talking about a transition away from fossil fuels to a world of renewables

Traditional automakers. 

Traditional automakers have for many years-built empires upon the use of fossil fuels and the development of petrol-powered motor vehicles.

During the many years they have developed technologies to enhance the speed and drivability of the vehicles. 

Enhancements with the management of exhaust pollutants have been developed over the years as growing environmental questions have accelerated.

But at no time was there ever a motivation to seriously look at alternatives to fossil fuel to power motor vehicles. Focus instead was still on how to reduce emissions. 

Volkswagen were found to have rigged their emissions results. They provided vehicles to the emissions testing team that were designed to pass the tests.  

What this allowed them to do was sell more vehicles over many years until they were found out.

The Tesla Effect 

Since Tesla released their first car, the Roadster, they have been driven by the mission to transition the world to sustainable transportation and energy. This thinking bought with it a fresh set of ideals for the motor industry.  

Traditional vehicle manufacturers have had little response to a fledgling electric car company and only in the last couple of years have they realized that Tesla is the future. 

In the last 10 years that lack of interest has turned into a vested interest as Tesla starts to make waves and profits from their electric vehicles. 

The Tesla way of thinking is very much like a tech company not a vehicle company, this is the number one reason traditional car companies don’t understand their success.

Secondly, they don’t follow the standard approach to selling, development, car upgrades and so on. 

Traditional car companies are slow to iterate, they plan for changes to make to the next model of the car, Tesla makes changes to cars when the change makes sense not for the next model. 

Tesla has a good foot hold on software development, they implement software changes regularly. Traditional car makers, if they do have technology in the car is hard to understand and does not seem to add improvements to the user interface.

These are just a couple of examples why the car of the future is knocking on the door of history to bring a fresh change to an industry in need of a new perspectives.

Who wins?

Tesla vs Traditional – who wins? 

Tesla is an electric car company, their cars don’t use fossil fuels or produce any toxins. They use electricity from batteries located in the floor of the vehicles that can be charged and recharged thousands of times. 

Tesla vs traditional is a clear win for Tesla. 

They are the new breed of vehicles on the road and they will continue to lead the way to the future. 

They have had a profound impact on the car market with many more new and traditional companies driving towards the electrification of the vehicle industry. 

I recently wrote about the evolving face of the electric car market and the changes that are coming.

If nothing else the future will be bright, will be clean and will improve the air we breathe. Now that’s a future I want for my kids, Don’t you?
