10/ @elonmusk on current $TSLA valuation

(highlighted text should be "billion" not "million")
11/ @elonmusk still thinks $TSLA will be big in solar
12/ Full Self Driving subscription product on the way

Could do WONDERS for take-rate and gross margin!
13/ $TSLA open to selling software to other companies

Again, could be GREAT for gross margins!
14/ Why Telsa Semi hasn't been a priority
15/ Model S / X refresh look great

Model S Plaid will be crazy fast

Slow ramp in Q1 2021

Pickup by Q2 2021

Raised price $10,000 -- should help gross margin!
16/ $TSLA has grown to become one of my largest holdings

I still think there's room for this mega-giant to run

The next 10 years will be incredible
