Tesla closed at 308.03 today. There are many new markets and technologies to look into with high risk high reward like Tesla. I am looking forward to the unveiling of the Pickup and semi starting in September. Not in production then, but the main R&D done and first testing prototypes. It is only a matter of time before the first waves of model 3 cars come out this year.

Barb,

Good luck! I already took my original money off the table, and a token $5k profit, leaving me 80% of my original shares when it hit high $90s. Our retirement is more than sufficient and medical becomes TriCare For Life in six days. Then all copay's are covered by TriCare as secondary to Medicare. However, they will take $115 a month out of my SS for part B!

Lynn has a decent 401k account from which she will soon have to start taking the mandatory withdrawals. So all of that goes into other investments. She will be 65 in two years. We have been very fortunate in not having to gamble our retirement for investments. My Tesla investment was to me like the cost of $45k fishing boats, and another $10k of equipment for tournament fishermen. Tesla was our fun hobby, not our future at stake. But it has since grown to become "real money." On top of all that and our liquid assets, we are soon liquidating two properties, our 5 acres and the inherited five acres both with new and recent house. One has a 3 or 6kw grid connected Standalone solar system. (I haven't pulled that paperwork in a while)
We don't show off, or wear gold or other conspicuous consumption. We prefer to eat home, and have a state of the art Home theater like now, and wherever we move. Might be Costa Rica or Colombia. Failing to like them,after visiting and house/tax/medical/costs investigating, we might move to the Denver area.

I hope everyone can find their own amazing earner investment. 

My back appears to be getting even better, despite a setback, when I thought I'd over stressed it, so neither health or money are obstacles. We love our home but it's time to feather a new nest. Worst case we move back, from Central or South America, to Denver.

 We ae still in but dang, we just got notice that we will once again be switched to a new advisor, that make 3 in the last 2 years. I think it's time for us to kick Edward Jones to the curb and make a switch. We have a meeting on Wednesday with the new guy but it sounds like he is pretty knew overall.

The little town of 15000 population where I am from has 3 Edward Jones offices.   I know them all and have every reason to think they make a good living.   That right there tells me they charge toooo much.   Buy some index funds and don't look back.

Tesla was trading at $327 earlier and now is still up $8.76 and trading at $322.83. Not bad for a $17 and $22.50 large block buy over five buys and only one share at $300 because I wanted a nice round number of shares and was at one share shy of a nice four figure number of shares. Somewhere between 1000 and 9999! WE are happy campers today.

Shorts need to stay away from Tesla:

"Tesla is most painful stock for short sellers in 2017"

Traders short selling Tesla's (TSLA.O) soaring stock have lost $3.7 billion this year, eclipsing the combined losses of traders shorting Apple (AAPL.O), Amazon.com (AMZN.O) and Netflix (NFLX.O).

The Palo Alto, California, company's stock has become a battleground between investors betting Chief Executive Elon Musk will revolutionize the automobile industry and skeptics who question his aggressive production targets.

Those conflicting views of the electric-car maker have deepened in recent weeks, with short sellers increasing their exposure even as paper losses mount and Tesla's stock hits new highs.

Short bets against Tesla have grown to $10.1 billion from $8.7 billion at the start of April, and during that time short sellers have racked up paper losses of $1.4 billion, according to S3 Partners, a financial analytics firm. Tesla's stock has climbed 15 percent in the same period and has surged 50 percent so far in 2017.

"You have your momentum guys riding this stock up and making a fantastic return, and the fundamental guys holding onto their shorts and building them and saying 'this can't continue' and waiting for the shoe to drop," said Ihor Dusaniwsky, S3 Partners' head of research.

"It's one of your classic yin and yangs on Wall Street."

I would question any company that does this as it usually means that the advisor has left the company. Take a hard look at how you have done while with the company. Many people will choose and advisor and stick with him if successful, even when/if he changes companies. If he doesn't make you enough money to exceed what he is paid for his services, then he isn't worth the cost and a really good one should be able to make more for you than you could do yourself, even after he gets paid. If you are just investing in mutual funds and leaving your money where it is, then should you even have a money manager? 

Be careful when you take advice from others about how to manage your investments yourself and keep in mind that on a public forum anyone can claim to have made himself rich by managing his money himself no matter what is actually the case. We have all known people who constantly visit the casinos and claim to always leave as winners and self-investing is little different.

i didn't know that EJ moved you to new advisors, I thought each office was an individually owned. There is no reason you couldn't move to another advisor who has been in business for many years. You can also move to a totally new investment company. Your investment stocks and funds should transfer without any tax issues. 

Remember, this is your money. If you don't like, trust, or agree with an advisor, just move your money. Read some investment books, Any. You don't have to do anything they recommend but you need to learn about investing.

Maybe buy a few hundred Elo production slots and corner the market......

Some oil geeks in the old days would buy Gulfstream jet slots for a few mil and then resell the slot to the Presedents buddy's for a few mil more........maybe become the Musk of Elo.........

 

Invest on........(remember........the market always goes up.....almost)

What do you mean by ELO? If you mean Elon's model 3 no reservations are transferable. You can reserve a maximum of 2

https://www.tesla.com/support/model-3-reservations-faq

If you mean Elio motors, that ship's sailed, I own a $100 T-Shirt and the City of Shreveport is angry. The Sheriff is on the news and tonight as well as this week it will be all over the news. I believe they are about to charge them 7 million dollars or some such for defrauding the city promising jobs three years ago. I lost one $100 reservation, my only investment loss. My funds, single stock and real properties are profitable.

But it would be great to see anyone deliver  something close to that Elio. I will be present live at the meeting with the Elio backer and Elio himself to answer to the city planning commission they misled for four years. If I remember correctly Elio sold all the manufacturing equipment for several million and he may owe that back to the city as well.

If you are talking about ELO, well the owner of that catalog, Jeff Lynn, is still very much alive and working. https://jefflynneselo.com/

Ramble on ................
