What does After Hours mean? People still buy/sell after the market has closed?

Haha...pretty interesting fellow indeed...but it was this persistence/stubbornness of his that got him the positive result in the end.

... Although, I'm a little surprised you went against what everyone advised ,op. You've got balls and absolutely crazy at the same time to do this.

Yes, there is always before/after market trading.

Earnings are normally announced before markets open / after they close. Looks like TSLA had good earnings reports which is the reason for the aftermarket spike.

I think Tesla is a good company but the P/E ratio for this stock is insane given it's sector. It's being treated like a tech stock since it's founder is a tech titan and everyone in the Valley follows it - but it is not a tech stock, it is an industrial. Its simply impossoble for Tesla to grow at a rate to warrant this kind of P/E. How many people outside California drive a Tesla?

Sell now or keep? Not sure if there is any more upside to it.

On the negative note, I lost $35K on RIM...

Sell now or keep? ..
It's always a difficult decision when it comes to selling.

The following firms have issued an update to the stock.

* Tesla Motors : Baird raises price target to $70 from $62; rating outperform
* Tesla Motors : Jefferies raises price target to $70 from $68; rating buy
* Tesla Motors : Goldman Sachs cuts to neutral from buy

At 70 bucks, I'd take profits. It's a good story, but it went too far...

Bought at 34$ in Feb somewhere, double my investment in less than 6 months :D

What do you guys think? Will it keep going up?

I am guessing it is going to drop a bit again and might grab a few more when it does. My investments are small compared to others but they seem big to me :P

I'm guessing there were a number of people betting big on a medicore (or worse) earnings report - and the huge increase was due to 'short covering'.

If you must own this stock, sell puts. Let's say May 70P goes for $2. If you're exercised, your price will be $68 (strike price minus premium received).
