Tesla FUD: I Was Wrong

October 7th, 2019 | by Frugal Moogal

A while ago, I started a semi-regular series in which I examined specific cases of Tesla FUD (or "Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt"). The plan was that I would look at a FUD topic that it seemed a ton of stock analysts were suddenly communicating about Tesla.

What’s Up With The Twitter Turf War Over Tesla & Elon Musk?

If you cut through the clutter, and instead, according to Wired, "If you focus on Tesla the company, then 2018 has been very good indeed."


Open Letter To Catherine Wood About Private Tesla vs Public Tesla

August 25th, 2018 | by Maarten Vinkhuyzen

While this letter was being prepared for publication, Elon Musk released the news that he decided not to follow through on his idea of taking Tesla private. That news made the goal of this letter obsolete. But the arguments in it are as valid today as they were yesterday, making it still worthy of publication


11 Tesla FUD Claims Of Years Past

August 4th, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan

On a Tesla Motors Club thread, some members there recently shared a few old claims of perennial Tesla bears. It was a brilliant little move of reverse trolling, and it prompted me to do something I've been wanting to do for ages — dig up some old claims about Tesla from prominent bears and see how they held up to the light of today
