    Over the last few days we have heard governments around the world talking about banning petrol and diesel vehicles in 20 years time. You would have thought this would play into the hands of Tesla (TSLA) but the graph seems to be saying something different. Is Tesla headed downwards in the short term despite the presence of Elon Musk?

    Price $339.60 @ 25 July 2017

    The hype surrounding the Model 3 launch might just be drifting away? I strongly believe in EVs in the long term but the valuation on this company is ludicrous.

    Price $335.07 @ 28th July 2017

    Is the bubble going to burst - consider this:-

    There is talk the Model 3 costs more to make than the sale price
    Does Tesla have the capacity to deliver on orders

    Never dismiss Elon Musk - he always seems to deliver but the risks and need for finances are growing stronger by the day. Will investors be as keen to stump up more cash in the short term to allow Musk to follow his dream?

    I am suspicious of Musk myself, and the stock is way overpriced IMO.

    The stock may continue to go up, but I think sooner or later this bubble will pop.

    He gets lots of $ from the government, and he may not be able to count on that indefinitely. They lose $ with every sale, and they burn through tons of cash.

    I will be buying a put in the next day or 2 ahead of earnings.

    I agree JR, love the car, great product but the market is taking too much on trust.

    Not sure this is going to bounce much higher in the short term?
