…A few words about Andrea James:

In this Google Hangout interview, DaveT (editor of discusses with Andrea what life was like as a TSLA analyst and her current view of Tesla. Join us LIVE.

Some questions so far are below.


I’d like to know if part of the reason she changed jobs is because (she mentioned that she could now start investing in TSLA) is because she thinks she’s going to be able to make close to as much or more by being able to invest in TSLA.


1) How do you feel about Elon’s SMP2? It includes sweeping projections of overhauling huge industries.
2) Is Tesla at risk of overreaching?
3) Assuming that the model 3 launch happens roughly according to plan, what if any revaluation do you expect the market to give TSLA? Do you think skepticism will rule all the way to model 3 contributing to financials?
4) How do you value Tesla Energy?
5) How do you envision the capital plan? Tesla will need new car factories. How do you see the timing of factories and capital raises?

Good questions. Speaking for myself, I’d be curious to hear Andrea’s thoughts on the recent announcement of a Tesla semi truck…. There seems to be some real potential for market disruption there.
