Q: Hello Peter,
I own TSLA shares mostly due to Elon Musk's innovation in the EV and other areas.. Given that he is always in the spot light (not always positive), do you think it is time to bail out or is the publicity just noise for now and will go away eventually . I am guessing it will be a rocky ride, but like to have your opinion given your experience in the industry. .. thanks very much

Q: Recently watched the Blackberry move and it was excellent. We know how things ended but they had a good run when they were winning but missed where the market was heading. Looking back over years there was the PC/Internet revolution followed by the mobile/smartphone revolution and now what appears to be the AI revolution. In hindsight buying and holding Microsoft, Apple, Google, Nvidia etc made sense. With AI the next frontier what stocks do you think will be the next big winners; same names as the past or are there new names we should investing in?

Q: I am trying to get a better understanding of the cash postion for Tesla. I have read, heard people state that Tesla should buy back stock, I have heard people say that they have lots of money. Looking at the balance sheet, the cash position is exactly what I hear people state. They have $26B in cash (plus about $2.5B in receivables); however, when I look at their current liabilities, it is about $26B. Am I wrong to think that their net cash position is position pretty close to 0 (plus the $2.5B in receivables). And if we consider that their cash position has not been growing in leaps and bounds, they do not really have very much cash as their current cash position would be required to pay their current liabilities. Is my logic correct (if not can you add a little explanation as to why not)? Thanks.

Q: Hi
I have three questions.
I am confused about market cap of a stock. Let me illustrate by way of example.
Company X lists for the first time on a stock exchange. It sells a lot of shares and captures, maybe, a windfall. The money is used to grow the company. Without any rationale, the share price drops and drops until it is worth next to nothing. The company is still operating and generating profits. In theory, can the company operations not be oblivious to the drop in share prices, as long as it still has sell-able products or services and is generating profits? Or do the value of the share price affect the company's operations?
The other thing I'm confused about is the value of the assets, goods and services possessed by a company. Assuming the value of these assets was much greater than the market cap, it seems unfair that the market cap could be seriously skewed by at the whim of shareholders. I don't have any examples but I assume there are some.
Lastly, can you please compare Tesla to BYDDF and fundamental basis?

Q: My Consumer Descretionary % is a bit low.

1. I'm a little gun shy buying this sector right now due to economy slowing in the face of higher interest rates. It seems the consumer may be struggling here for awhile. Would you bump up a low sector waiting right now or just wait 6-12 months?

2. How would you currently rank the following watchlist for capital appreciation over the next year+? Are there some you would not really consider Consumer Descretionary - seems to be quite a range of business.
