We are talking 10 to 20 years from now. Tesla's mission should be accomplished by then. They will stop growing exponentially and instead serve a more stable EV, storage, and solar market. There's no reason not to pay dividends at that point.

WTF? that's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. I don't want dividends. I want Elon to be able to finance his Mars mission without having to sell TSLA stocks. Every Tesla investor should want that too. What's your problem with it?

If Tesla still needs to grow 20 years from now, it has failed at its mission to ACCELERATE the advent of electric transport and renewable energy.

We are talking 10 to 20 years from now according to Elon. Reinvesting in growth won't be necessary by then.

I understand, but we are talking 10 to 20 years from now. Apple's current dividend is about to reach $12b annually. If Tesla can catch up to that, which I don't think is impossible, Elon would be getting more than $2 billion a year. That's a lot of money to pour himself into Mars

I'm not talking about the yield. Elon owns roughly 20% of the float so he'd be getting about 20% of the overall dividends if Tesla was to issue any.

The reason Tesla is not highly profitable already is that spending is high to invest in rapid growth, but growth will dramatically slow down in 5-10 years as the goal gets closer. What do you think?

Any chance you don't actually sell share at that point and Tesla becomes profitable enough to pay dividends. You'd be pocketing 20% of the company's entire dividends to finance your multi-planetary ambitions for humanity. Everyone wins.

Forget about the short shorts. That's how is having the last laugh.

Yeah I agree. That’s my point, but we might not have the whole story here.

False. Plenty of employees worked a full quarter with pay cuts regardless of govt restrictions.

Me saying that investors (such as myself) should appreciate the sacrifice of Tesla employees in Q2 means that I have a big head. I don’t follow your logic.

If you do then you know that it isn’t enough to compensate for salary cuts and the performance bonuses were suspended.

Do you know how much stocks entry levels employees are getting?

I’m not saying they won’t. I’m just trying to understand the logic here if there’s any. We need the full story for that.

The most important part of my last article. investors are having a good time right now but they need to appreciate that it came at a cost to Tesla employees this quarter.

Did Tesla specify what “actions” on your YouTube account they are referring to? If not, that’s pretty shady. If it’s not about the content itself but “mass distribution”, they might have a case, but then they would have to go after all other Tesla influencers too.

Oh nevermind. I just saw that you have TSLA puts so you are probably just butt hurt right now. I get it. It's OK. Bonne soirée.
