I wonder how much the CEO makes and how much will he get when the company folds up like a cheap suitcase?

pjbreeze: I wonder how much the CEO makes and how much will he get when the company folds up like a cheap suitcase?


This is no more evident than with the 2009 compensation package for Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk, 39, who accepted just $1 from  a state-mandated minimum of $33,280 in cash compensation each year since becoming CEO in 2008. However, that's only part of the picture. In 2009, Musk, who gained success and notoriety as one of the founders of PayPal, Inc., was also awarded 10 million shares in stock options worth $2.21 per share, which works out to over $23.8 million.

Sure, there could be a golden parachute in there somewhere, but it looks like 'if the company fails, he fails.'
I think this company is getting a short shrift.  The cars seem okay and have varying ranges.  It's just that they're very dear, but hopefully that will change with time.  Musk is determined.  He may succeed.  (Not a stockholder, but always interested.)

What do you mean short shrift? If people don't want to buy the cars, the company will fail. No one's giving them a short anything. If they fail, it's because they have a product no one wants to buy.

You mean Elon Musk, one of the founders of PayPal with a net worth of approximately $2,400,000,000 who is also the founder and CEO/CTO of SpaceX? That CEO? Yeah, I hear he is a fly by night crook that co-founded Tesla to funnel money out of stupid investors...

But the other thread says don't do that thing.

I wouldn't buy or short Tesla at this point.  However if I was a gambling man and somebody said I have X amount of dollars and that I have to either buy or short Tesla today, I'd short them.

/which means it will probably go up
//or does it

The company is frail, their product has problems, their production cost is insane and this isn't the 90s. Is there even a market for these cars in this economy?

I'd love to see him dominate the car industry, but I just don't think it's a good bet.

My experience with stocks is that whenever someone publicly encourages the public to purchase a particular stock, it means it's about to drop in value.

As an incredibly poor person, I have wanted a Tesla since they came out. I love the design, I like the electric ideas they forward... but the pricetag is hefty. If i could afford ot invest I would,I think they would make more money if people were smarter, but, like the delorian, its jsut a before its time vehicle, without all the coke...
