It could always come crumbling down, but my $860 investment in Tesla shares is worth nearly 3800 today. Wow!

Dualstow, it's called "trailing stop order" :-)

Probably wise  ;) Because there are wild swings (much like my wife's emotions), I am letting it ride.
If I had invested 8K instead of eight hundred, I'd probably have a limit sell order in place.

I'm only saying that because I made that mistake with Netflix. I sold a bunch at $180 to take a profit. Smart move eh!

I know Netflix is high now, but short of a crystal ball, it's not a dumb move. Ya'never know.

According to the talking heads the large drop today in high fliers like Tesla is simply big money managers freeing up cash to purchase Alibaba on Friday. So Friday might be a good time to buy more Tesla or Facebook or Amazon or Netflix, etc.

Well, you could do a lot worse than Tesla.  Even I'm a fan of Musk now.  If Tesla makes it, it will literally change the world.  You don't get many opportunities like that in a lifetime.

I wish that I would have taken my own advice!

Tesla took a big hit today. Revision in sales guidance. It was bound to happen.
