re: Dealer Buy-Back / State Lemon Law - Novae
Electrical stuff, especially multiple different issues, always scares customers but is usually related to a bad module or a bad battery/connection. It's rare that there's multiple bad electrical connections. However, that won't stop a customer from raising hell prompting a buyback. Usually there'...

re: Dealer Buy-Back / State Lemon Law - Novae
A buyback is different from a lemon (as defined as a car that was repurchased by the manufacturer under the lemon law). Basically, nobody went to court for the buyback. The customer and manufacturer agreed to some form of compensation, and the customer likely bought another Ford in your case. We'...

re: Does Vegas want even money on both sides of sportsbook bet ? - Novae
[quote]Your way of thinking reminds me[/quote] Not my way, the professional's way. These large sports books are run by quants and seasoned pros, not guys like your buddy. They take very calculated risks. Your way of thinking reminds me of someone pretending on a message board that he knows wha...

re: Arsenal 2016/2017 Season Long Thread: 13 time FA Cup Champs - Novae
I agree about Alexis being gone this summer, and I am kind of happy about it. He reminds me of Russell Westbrook. Both are ball hogs who put up crazy good numbers but do very little for their teammates (even though they have the assist numbers). They both murder team chemistry. OKC will not win ...

re: Investing In Tesla - Novae
Serious question: How long have you been investing? I mean no harm by the question. I just want a genuine idea of how long you've been putting your money in the stock market. Your statement that you get offended when people comment on a company or stock without understanding it made me wonder....

re: Investing In Tesla - Novae
The lower end segment is a completely different ballgame than the $100k market. Most of the early buyers have great credit (if they didn't just write a check) and have another vehicle in the garage in case the Tesla needs works or they have to drive farther than the range allows. I would argue tha...

re: Investing In Tesla - Novae
You keep referring to Mobileye's valuation as if it's a fact to base every other valuation on. It's just the opinion of one suitor. Everything, especially technology, is overvalued right now in my opinion. Big profits for a couple of recent home run IPOs has everyone hoping to hop on the next one...

re: Investing In Tesla - Novae
Have been killed to this point? True, but I'm sure you're aware of The Black Swan. One only profits in the market when they sell (especially for a no dividend growth stock); obviously you haven't. Tesla's had a wonderful 6 year run, no doubt about it. Many people confuse themselves as great inve...

re: Investing In Tesla - Novae
You may want to check how much of his net worth is tied up in Telsa stock. You think there's cheap cash now, and there is, but it dries up immediately when there's a crunch, or worse, a crash. When both factors are correlated so directly, there's no Musk bailing it out if it's in a freefall. ...

re: Can I buy a car with a credit card? - Novae
Technically, putting a down payment on a CC for car that your are financing would violate many of the lender agreements that dealerships have. You are paying equity towards a loan with a loan. I'm sure all of the posters here are OT 800+ scores, so it shouldn't be a problem. But for the credit-ch...

re: Who do you think is more intelligent? - Novae
Intelligence is a tough thing to quantify. Plus you have to take into consideration the goals of each individual. Not everyone is driven to work hard enough to own a yacht. Lots of very intelligent guys value their free time much more than making a couple of extra bucks. They'd rather coach teeb...
