Tesla will deliver 30 Model 3 units on Friday 28 and 100 cars in August

Tesla is now ready to deliver Model 3 to customers, and Elon Musk will deliver 30 Model 3 units today, friday 28th. Musk has also said he will deliver 100 cars in August and about 1,500 in September. In the long run, Tesla are planning to deliver about 20,000 Model 3 units a month.

Volume is the question here. Are they able to deliver what they have promised? Annual production was said to be 500,000 units by 2020, but Tesla said last year that they will reach that goal in 2018 which is a big jump in production from today`s annual 100,000 units.

 

 

Tesla launched Model X last year but have so far seen a lot of challenges. The SUV was late to the market, and had a lot of problems with its technology. This made it difficult to produce Model X fast enough.

They have learned for that and built a new model that is much more easy to build which will give them the opportunity to reach their volume goal much faster. Can they make it? Investors will follow very closely.

Tesla Model 3 is a low-cost $35,000 vehicle. The question is: Will the demand for Model X and Model S decrease as the demand for Model 3 will rise?

It can be a bumpy road for Tesla, but the launch of Model 3 looks like a great growth plan for the company.

Tesla is expected to report earnings next week on August 2 after market close, and the report will be for the fiscal Quarter ending June 2017. Earnings forecast for the quarter is $-2 which is worse than last years $-1,54 for the same quarter.

It is a huge company and belive it or not, it is a strong momentum going on here and that indicates Amazon has strong growth potential for the future. The company reported a 34% YoY increase in third-party seller service revenues in the first quarter ($6,44 billion).

 

 

Amazon also had a 49% increase in subscription revenue in the first quarter ($1,94 billion). AWS revenues grew 43% to $3,66 billion.

Amazon acquired the brick-an-mortar grocery store chain Whole Foods and that will give the company a boost in the e-commerce business. This alone will add more value to its shareholders and therefore change Amazon`s margins.

Amazon.com Inc is expected to report earnings on Thursday 27 after market close. The report will be for the fiscal Quarter ending June 2017. Earnings forecast for the quarter is $1,4 versus $1,78 for the same quarter last year.

Snapchat is the latest challenger, but Facebooks Instagram seems to be strong in this market and will also contribute to Facebooks revenue growth. Instagram has over 700 million MAUs and 400 million DAUs.

Instagram is not the only growth engine of Facebook. They also have Messenger, WhatsApp and Oculus VR, and their next step will be to compete with YouTube.

Investors love the social media giant. In January this year, Facebook`s shares were trading at $115 per share and on Monday their shares were trading at $166 per share. The giant have jumped over 40% so far in 2017. Compare that to the rise in the benchmark S&P 500 index during the same period and see for yourself.

Chris Froome wins yellow jersey for the 4th time

Chris Froome won the tour – again. And he wins yellow jersey for the 4th time. This time, he didn`t win a stage which means he is the 7th rider to win the Tour without one. Chis Froome is also the second in the list of most Tour titles.

He can join the class of super heroes like Jacques Anquetil, Eddy Merckx, Bernard Hinalt and Miguel Indurain. All of them with five wins. To join that group, Froome need to win next years Tour de France. Is it possible?

 

 

Of course it is possible.

But some people on this planet must understand that some people on this planet are better than other people.

Magnus Carlson is the best chess player in the world right now. Usain Bolt is the fastest human in the world right now. He is probably the greatest sprinter of all time. What`s wrong with that?

We are all different.

Who is talking about LinkedIn? Only a few. Reid Hoffman sold his «baby» to Bill Gates and Microsoft acquired the professional networking platform in an all-cash deal worth $26,2 billion in December last year.

Microsoft`s CEO Sataya Nadelia said at that time “The deal would bring together the worlds leading professional cloud with the worlds leading professional network.”

In addition; Microsoft wants to compete with Apple and Alphabet in delivering its self-driving car platform. They will collaborate with China`s search engine giant Baidu to use its Azure services for those self-driving cars.

Microsoft said in a press release on July 18, that Baidu and Microsoft plan to explore opportunities to deliver connected vehicle solutions and unique customer experiences that aim to digitally transform the autonomous driving industry.

Microsoft is focusing on cloud-connected car scenarios via its «Microsoft Connected Vehicle» strategy, and the company is aiming to get more vehicles to use their cloud services, like Office 365 and Azure, instead of using Microsoft itself inside cars via «Windows Automotive.»

Other Automotive brands are also interested in Microsoft`s cloud business. BMW and Volvo have both announced partnerships with Microsoft for its cloud-business car services.
