Imagine an electric revival sportster with no pipes and a recording of "Potato Potato".

Now, before you laugh, think about this. Tesla sales are dismal. The company has made huge losses year after year.
As of December 2021 Tesla has a market cap of $936.54 Billion. This makes Tesla the world's 6th most valuable company by market cap.

It has nothing to do with making a good product. It is all about convincing people to make a bet.

The way of the future for HD - LIVEWIRE ! YEA Ha !
I figured out as a teen that the world runs on bs, and bs artistes run the world.

We are just insane animals. Makes sense now

It has nothing to do with making a good product. It is all about convincing people to make a bet.

People that made that bet 5 years ago have made a profit of 2099%.
Maybe Tesla should merge with HD.

That's not that far fetched. A week ago I heard a Tesla play a somewhat loud recording of La Cucaracha when the driver honked the horn.

The V6 Ford F150 Ecoboost plays a V8 sound through the interior speakers to make the drivers think it sounds better. https://www.roadandtrack.com/new-car...nto-v6-trucks/

How come a company like Royal Enfield can sell motorcycle with 1960 technologies in USA??? Those Asian Indian must have the former VW head of emission testing working for them!!!

We don't count our winnings until the game is over.

If you look at the top 5 stocks on the exchange you'll see they are ALL up a massive amount.
The rest, not so much.
The exchange is now nothing more than a casino. It is NOT an indicator of good products.

Have a look at what happened with GME to see how this works now.

I don't know who the "We" are that you refer to but the game is never over unless you cash out (profits or losses are taken)and that should be whenever the investor decides his or her goals are or not met.
