How many shares of Tesla do you own and what are your future plans for the stock? (I don't know if that's too personal of a question.) My wife ands I are all in for the long run. She bought in before the split.

I'm accepting donations if anyone has too many shares.

We have a financial investor and I know she likes Tesla, but I have no idea how much we have exactly. I do know I said specifically to not bother with legacy auto in the portfolio three years ago.

I've told this story on here before but I heard about this cool new start-up car company in 2014 after they won Motor Trend Car of the Year and Automobile Automobile of the Year. I asked my financial advisor if I should buy some shares. He said that he would advise against it.

2016 comes around I ask again, he said no way because Tesla will go bankrupt.

Now it's early 2018 and I'm a few months away from taking delivery of my Model 3 and I'm going down the Tesla rabbit hole. I now tell my financial advisor to buy 15 shares @$57.90 (post-split) and again, he strongly advised against but he ultimately did buy the shares. Over the next 18 months, I kept sending him links about Tesla news but he clearly was not interested and then I came to the conclusion that he really didn't understand what I was interested in. I fired him on Christmas 2019 and since that day I'm up about 625% on my Tesla Investments that I was told many times to stay away from. I now have 137 shares with a goal of owning 10,000 shares in total (almost there hehe).

Point is, Do your own research. Build your conviction and pull the trigger.

Hopefully 5x more in the next few months.

I own what I could afford when I bought in 2016, but it's all in my SBA so I can't touch it until I retire.
Unless I want to pay outrageous penalties and taxes.

I don’t know why anyone would share this information on a public forum.

I feel like sharing the fact that I own a non-zero amount is over share, but I’ve posted about it enough that that is clear.

Bought a bunch of shares a few years ago with the money I got when I sold my ICE to get my Model S LR. Now it's worth enough to buy a couple of Cybertrucks and a Roadster. I'm not planning on getting a Roadster because I love my MSLR too much and I don't need super Plaid speed, but I have upgraded my plans from a dual to a Tri (or maybe a quad) motor CT.

Yeah, good job! I fired my traditional broker 25 years ago when I realized he advised I sell my largest and most promising holding. Transferred all our financial assets into an on-line account that had just started to become a thing. We moved to another town and when our old house sold I transferred another $100K plus into our on-line account and used almost all of it to add to our QCOM holdings. Over the next 18 months I watched as the stock my previous broker had advised against proceeded to appreciate a shocking 3500%! Sold it all and retired. Haven't had a traditional broker/financial advisor since.

Financial advisors and stock brokers are working because they need a job.

yep, remember they don't make money unless you buy or sell something.......they are like some dentists I know....if you move and get a new dentist, first question is how long has it been since you have seen a dentist....they they proceed to destroy all the good teeth you have left with crowns or root canals....I had a dentist in San Jose....he said I had a cavity and need to replace a crown because it had decay....well 4 years later he has not mentioned it again.....but I have no decay or pain and the crown is still there.....

morel to this is, if you feel something is wrong. go with your gut......fire the SOB
