From a Cybertruck launch, to the Tesla Semi to FSD, I think Tesla is just getting started in China. And the rumors are growing that they will unveil a new mass-marke…
 
I sat down w/ Michael Saylor, CEO of MicroStrategy, to discuss Tesla's Bitcoin purchase, and the future of the cryptocurrency. He predicts, that in 5 years, more than 1 billion people will own Bitcoin. We cover who in big tech will move next, why inflation will continue, and the evolution of the monetary system as we leave the fiat standard. I had …

Bitcoin's energy consumption has stayed flat since mid 2018 (almost 3 years), despite huge growth in users, and dollars moved on the network. Many skeptics point to the irony of Tesla buying Bitcoin (because of its focus on renewable energy), but fail to understand this. The monetary system requires energy. Yes, Bitcoin consumes a lot, but it's not…
 
We need our billionaires and investment idols to inspire us to live more sustainably, and invest in the future they believe in. I'm ashamed as a Warren Buffett fan that he/his company Berkshire Hathaway bought Chevron. It shows they put profit over people and the planet. Lame. Going live to give my hot take on this. Nothing on the show is financial…
 
Drop-in audio chat app Clubhouse is booming. Despite being invite only. Clubhouse has accumulated 2M+ users, and a $1B+ valuation. The app allows you to listen and join various live conversations. It's a live audio-only social network. I'm obsessed with the creative potential this product has. I think this is the next big thing, and I'd buy stock h…
 
Moonshot confirmed! Tesla has purchased $1.5B worth of Bitcoin! Instead of hoarding the usual bonds and fiat as reserve assets, Tesla has decided to move ~7% of it's $19.4B in cash into Bitcoin. I think this is a genius move, and will set off a wave of rapid institutionalization of Bitcoin. Who will be the next big tech company to get in?? Are you …
 
Tesmanian reports that Tesla is moving forward with a Phase 2 of its Shanghai factory, and is expanding to build the production line of a new vehicle (not the Model 3/Y). Filings with the Chinese government appear to indicate the Model 2 is on track to begin production and deliveries as soon as 2022 (next year!). This seems wayyy ahead of schedule …
 
Perceived Solvency = to continue to operate (and stay solvent) a company must maintain the perception of solvency among all of its stakeholders. Startups that burn cash are reliant on this notion of perceived solvency. Robinhood was asked to put up $3B in capital suddenly, and this appears to have caused a liquidity crisis at the firm. In the last …
 
In a shocking move Jeff Bezos has announced he will be stepping down as Amazon CEO in Q3 2021. He will become Executive Chairman of the board, and be replaced by Andy Jassy, a 24 year Amazon veteran, the Founder and CEO of AWS (Amazon Web Services). Jeff Bezos claims Amazon is at peak inventiveness right now, do you think the company will continue …

SpaceX's Starlink, a low earth orbit satellite internet service, has successfully launched its beta test. What's next? An IPO and massive global expansion? I think so. In this episode I dive into the current state of Starlink, and why it makes sense for Elon Musk and SpaceX to spin it out, and have the highly anticipate 'Starlink IPO' sometime in t…

Mike put me on to Unisocks at $60 per pair, and they are now trading for thousands. What are your thoughts on the future of Ethereum?…
 
Elon Musk replied to my tweet about the Plaid Model S with a winky face ... #hmm. Tesla is on the cusp of launching the Plaid Model S variant, with 520+ miles of range, 200mph top speed, and sub 2 second 0-60 time. For just $139,990, it's yours! Could the Model S Plaid be coming even sooner than "late 2021" ... like in a few months? If so, it will …
 
Tesla's Q4 2020 delivery report is hot off the press!!! It's ANOTHER record quarter, with deliveries of 180,570 and production of 179,757. This represents 29% sequential growth (from Q3's record), and 61% year over year growth. For the full year, Tesla delivered 499,550 cars, just a smidge shy of the company's original (pre-COVID) 2020 delivery gui…
 
Masterworks is democratizing fine art investing. The startup has created an online platform that allows consumers to invest in paintings for as little as $20. By securitizing multi-million dollar paintings and opening them up to the masses, Masterworks is disrupting the art collection & resale market. There are already 100,000 investors on the Mast…
 
nterview with Jordan Giesige from The Limiting Factor about QuantumScape, what to make of the latest investor day/battery data presentation. We discuss what it will take to scale QuantumScape's pouch cell into a full pack, and how they seemed to ignore the advances from Tesla's Battery Investor Day. I think QuantumScape's valuation of ~$26B ($73.73…

Between increasing FSD prices, and ramping production, Tesla's intrinsic earnings power appears to be compounding at 100%+.…
 
Interview with Michael Saylor, CEO of MicroStrategy. His company has an $800M Bitcoin position and is buying more. As Bitcoin becomes better understood as a store of value (digital gold 2.0), should more companies adopt MicroStrategy's approach and keep Bitcoin instead of cash/treasuries on the balance sheet?! My vote is yes. As a Bitcoin investor …

In this interview with my friend Luke Pappas, a Principal at the Silicon Valley VC firm NEA, we discuss the evolving social m…
 
Tesla stock closed today at an all-time high of $642 per share, valuing the company at ~$650B. That values Tesla at 18.6X price/sales, 78X price/gross profit and 203X price/EBIT ... based on Q3 2020 financials. In this rant I breakdown why I'm still holding my shares despite this seemingly 'crazy' valuation, and how I philosophically think about va…
 
It's official, Tesla is joining the S&P 500 on December 21st, and it's not happening in tranches. Is this going to trigger panic buying, a potential Index Tracking Fund Squeeze? I call up my friend, and legendary Tesla Twitter member James Stephenson to get the inside scoop on what this news means for Tesla shareholders! Huge thanks to James for jo…
 
I had the honor of sitting down with Arcimoto's first customer, Eugene-legend, Lynn Frohnmayer. We discuss what it was like getting used to owning an Arcimoto, how safe it is, if it will ever use Tesla batteries, and how it lives up to the name 'Fun Utility Vehicle.' Huge thank you to Mark for hosting me in Eugene, and Lynn for podcasting. This was…
 
Rumors are that Warren Buffett has secretly taken a large stake in Tesla. This would be very uncharacteristic of Buffett to make a big bet on a bold CEO, leading a fast growing technology firm. But I think it's possible and makes total sense. We pitched a moonshot in 2017 that Warren Buffett should buy 5% of Tesla for $3B (which would now be worth …
 
Interview with Rodney Hooper of RK Equity about Tesla's raw materials supply chain strategy. We cover Battery Day announcements, Tesla's plan to get into clay lithium mining, how the EV boom will impact raw material prices (lithium, nickel, graphite and more). I think Tesla's ability to source high quality battery materials is a key competitive adv…
 
An interview with Carlos Soto, the Founder of Nosotros Tequila, the startup behind the legendary Tesla Tequila product. We talk about the special 15 month aged Anejo that was developed especially for Tesla. Each bottle comes in a hyper-artisanal handblown glass lightning bolt bottle (eerily similar to the HyperChange logo ;). In the podcast we disc…
 
Nerding out on Tesla's financials, revenue, gross profit, return on assets, unlevered free cash flow, FSD revenue, and so much more with Mayur Thacker. We come the conclusion that Tesla is one of the most fascinating business case studies to watch, defying almost all auto industry financial norms. Tesla's simultaneous growth and efficiency improvem…
 
I caught up with Jordan Giesige of The Limiting Factor, my favorite battery YouTuber. We analyzed all aspects of Tesla's battery investor day, from the new 4680's tabless design, to cell to structure manufacturing, the $25,000 Model 2, silicon anodes, cathode production, clay mining, tesla airplanes & even a Tesla cyber cargo ship!!! It was EPIC! t…
 
Interview with Turner Novak, partner & Chief Meme Officer at Gelt VC. Turner is an expert & thought leader on consumer social apps, especially Tik Tok, Snapchat & Instagram. In this episode we dive into the future of social media and why everybody is working on a smartphone (and why Tik Tok should launch one).…
 
Tesla has increased it's CAPEX guidance, and plans to spend between $4.5-$6B on Capital Expenditures over each of the next two years. These investments are to ramp vehicle production, and build out new battery production lines for the 4680 cell (my guess). This is a super exciting development as Tesla invests like crazy to scale to millions of vehi…
 
Arcimoto announced a partnership this morning with DHL, to deliver the Fun Utility Vehicle (FUV) to the 48 continental United States. This is really exciting news, as Arcimoto ramps up production and gears up for its goal of producing (and delivering) 50,000 units per year. I'm joined by Mark Frohnmayer CEO & Founder of Arcimoto to discuss this new…
 
Tesla's highly anticipated 'FSD beta' software update is now being set out to a handful of lucky customers. Although you have to oversee the vehicle, this new feature allows you to plug in a destination and the car to start driving there (all by itself). Wow. This is already going viral, and it should be. Tesla is leveraging the data from these ear…
 
Tesla Q3 2020 earnings preview! I'm projecting Tesla will grow revenue by more than 30% to ~$8.3B, and produce about ~$500M in operating income (excluding any impact from Elon's stock compensation package). What I'm most curious about on the conference call is the production ramp of Tesla's new 4680 battery cell, and any details surrounding the pla…
 
Tesla reports record Q3 deliveries of 139,300, up 43% year over year. These record breaking numbers (in delivery & production) imply a huge financial beat and profit coming. The best part is this is just the start of Tesla posting consecutive quarters, of record deliveries and revenue. I think the company could still hit its (pre-COVID) guidance of…
 
Full breakdown of Tesla's Battery investor day. From the new 4680 cell, to the tabless electrode, to the potential of the Model 2 ... I try and summarize one of the most important days in Tesla history. The cat is out of the bag, Tesla is bringing cell production in house and scaling like crazy. They plan to hit 100GWh/yr by 2022 of this new cell. …
 
Interview with James Stephenson, fellow Tesla shareholder, and prominent Tesla Twitter community member. James has been fighting the FUD with incredible analysis on Twitter for years, and has even been applauded by Elon Musk for his insight. In this podcast we discuss how Tesla has evolved in the two years since we were featured in a Wall Street Jo…
 
Tesla now trades at a valuation of ~$400B, making it the world's largest automaker and one of the largest public companies in the world. Can the current financials justify this valuation? How far out, and what assumptions must you have for TSLA to make sense at these prices? In this video I walk through my thinking as a long-term investor, and why …
