Another couple months of these "up 6% every day" days, and I may just retire a few year early...

Really regret not buying more shares at $267 though... I knew the stock was going to do well, I just expected this upward run to take longer! Like, 3-4 years longer!

I scrimp together and buy what little more I can whenever it pulls back a little. Cost basis is now getting up closer to $300. Still not bad when you're expecting it to be around $3000 in 10 years.

True!
My measly 20 shares beats 10, I suppose!
I thought about selling a few shares of AAPL to buy more TSLA too.

Wouldn't be a bad idea. I sold almost all my Apple and other stocks over a year or two ago, and put it in Tesla. I don't think Apple will grow anywhere like Tesla will in the coming years, but on the other hand it will be a safe place for respectable returns.

I'm gonna agonize over that for a while...
I have great confidence in Tesla, but "stuff happens". I also have great confidence that even come "hard times", AAPL will not fall below what I paid (or even 3x what I paid...).

Don’t blame u at all. Apple has graduated to become one of those trusted blue blood stocks.

I thought about buying more TSLA shares when Elon was partying online and running his mouth too much. Oh well, my 10 shares are doing well enough, up 133% since I bought them.

By comparison, my AAPL shares are up (only) 220%. I jumped back in late in the game a few years ago.

Yup, that would’ve been a good time. And btw, he still parties and runs is mouth, it’s just that no one has caught him lately.

The stock is just experiencing the infamous unintended acceleration.

Daaaaaaaaamn!

This could be like when Tesla was bouncing back and forth between $20-$40 forever, when it should have been inching towards $200. It finally broke out and accelerated to $200 almost instantly.

Now it’s been bouncing between $200-$400 for the past 2 years, whereas if it followed its trend line it should have been at $1000 or more by now. Perhaps it’s breaking out and doing that now.

You guys shouldn't be kicking yourselves. There's no way to predict these short term swings. Sure, the faster it goes up and the higher it gets, the greater the chance of a pull back. But at this point it would be anybody's guess.

I haven’t sold any shares (in the interest of short term plays). But this is going up very fast. Surely it’ll pull back at some point. I don’t expect it to go below $400, but there’s a good chance at some point it’ll go sub-$500. At that point it’ll present a buying opportunity for y’all. Having said that, it’s at $592 now....,crazy sheet!

I went all in very early 2017. Cashed out some insurance policies and added a little more back in May. Been scrimping ever since then to add more as pullbacks have occurred.

If it pans out well, all credit goes to a cousin (who got me interested in the first place) and SpaceX, who's success helped convince me Musk might be the real thing. The rest is just luck (I missed out on Apple and Amazon because I wasn't just into investing at that time...but really I had no excuse with Apple as I knew when they were $7 a share in the 90's, there'd really be no way to lose).

Still, I don't expect any of this to make me filthy rich...just able to have a real nice retirement.
