Michael Burry is shorting Tesla stock. Here’s what I’d do now

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! One investor I tend to keep a close eye on is hedge fund manager Michael Burry. A little over a decade ago, Burry made an absolute fortune by successfully predicting the 2008/2009 US housing market crash and betting against subprime mortgages. His character was featured in the Hollywood blockbuster ‘The Big Short’.Recently, it has come to light that Burry has a huge short position in Tesla stock. This means he’s betting that shares in the electric vehicle manufacturer will fall. Here, I’m going to take a closer look at Burry’s position on TSLA. I’ll also explain how I’d approach Tesla stock now.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Burry is shorting Tesla stockRegulatory filings from Burry’s firm, Scion Asset Management, reveal that at the end of March, Burry owned put options on 800,100 Tesla shares.A put option on a stock allows an investor to sell that stock at a certain price in the future. Sophisticated investors often buy put options on a stock when they expect that stock’s price to fall. If the price does fall, the put options become more valuable.Based on Tesla’s share price of $668 at the end of the first quarter, the value of Burry’s short bet on Tesla was about $530m. This is clearly a big bet against the stock.Why is Burry shorting Tesla?Burry typically doesn’t say much about his positions. He tends to stay out of the spotlight. Since it came to light that Scion has a $530m bet against Tesla, the firm has not said anything about the short position.However, in my view, it’s pretty easy to see why Burry is shorting Tesla. You see, Burry is a committed value investor. In the past, he’s said his investment style is built around the book ‘Security Analysis’ by Benjamin Graham and David Dodd – which focuses on value investing. “All my stock picking is 100% based on the concept of a margin of safety,” he has said.Looking at Tesla, it’s hard to see value. Currently, the company has a market capitalisation of $557bn. That’s about 11.5 times the market-cap of Ford. Given that Tesla delivered 499,500 cars last year, it’s valued at about $1.1m per car delivered (versus $11,500 for Ford). Clearly, Burry believes Tesla’s valuation is too high.How I’d approach TSLA stock nowTesla does have a number of things going for it. For starters, it’s the clear leader in the electric vehicle (EV) space right now. This industry is growing rapidly and has a long growth runway ahead. In the coming years, Tesla is going to sell a lot of EVs.Secondly, it has an amazing CEO in Elon Musk. There’s no doubting Musk is a genius. Betting against him hasn’t worked out well in the past.However, given the size of Burry’s short on Tesla, I continue to think caution is warranted towards the stock at present. Given his track record, I think his view on Tesla is worth noting.center_img Michael Burry is shorting Tesla stock.

Dr. Harvey H. Guthrie, Jr., sometime dean of the Episcopal Divinity School, Cambridge, Massachusetts, and retired rector of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, Ann Arbor, Michigan, died on Dec.17in Oxnard, California. He had lived in retirement near Fillmore, California, since 1995.Serving as the head of one of the Episcopal Church’s leading seminaries from 1969 to 1985, a period of upheaval and change in the church and in higher education, Guthrie led in the creation of the Episcopal Divinity School from a merger of the Episcopal Theological School in Cambridge and the Philadelphia Divinity School, in the appointment to its faculty of ordained as well as lay women, and in sometimes controversial curricular innovation stressing individual student initiative based on experience and involvement in ministry.His educational perspective was ecumenical. He was a leader in the founding of the Boston Theological Institute, a consortium of theological schools in the Boston area, in the bringing of the Jesuit Weston School of Theology into a shared-facilities relationship with EDS involving a joint library program and much joint teaching, and as a holder of many offices including the presidency of the Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada.Guthrie also participated in a historic period in the life of the Episcopal Church as a deputy to its General Conventions from 1973 to 1982, as a leader in the movement for the ordination of women, as a participant in the deliberations leading to the 1979 revision of the Book of Common Prayer, and as a long-time advocate for the recognition of gay and lesbian unions and the ordination of openly homosexual members of the church. For many years, he chaired the council of deans of Episcopal seminaries.In 1985, after 35 years as a seminary teacher and administrator, Guthrie accepted a call to be rector of St. Andrew’s Church, Ann Arbor, Michigan. He saw his ten-year ministry there as practical application of his years of study of the church’s biblical and liturgical heritage. He led in establishing the liturgy as the center of parish life and in the refurbishing of a 19th century building to fit current liturgical practice. At the same time, he presided over a parish much involved in community service and issues, a significant part of whose ministry was a daily meal program for all who would come. His commitment to ecumenism continued in Ann Arbor, and he was a leader both in relationships among the churches and in the founding of an interfaith association including Jews and Muslims and Buddhists as well as Christians.After his retirement in 1995, he continued occasional preaching and teaching, and worked as a legal aid volunteer, counseling and representing claimants of Social Security and welfare benefits at appeals. In 2012, he was honored by the Diocese of Los Angeles by being appointed an honorary canon.Guthrie’s early contributions were as a teacher and scholar in biblical studies, particularly of the Hebrew Scriptures. He was the author of God and History in the Old Testament, Israel’s Sacred Songs, and Theology as Thanksgiving: from Israel’s Psalms to the Church’s Eucharist, as well as numerous articles and reviews. He was an instructor at the General Theological Seminary, New York, 1953-58, and a professor at the school in Cambridge from 1958, continuing to hold his chair and teach after becoming its dean in 1969. He had been a visiting lecturer at Columbia University, Andover-Newton Theological School, and St. George’s College in Jerusalem, a visiting scholar at Yale and at Göttingen University in Germany, and the Selwyn Lecturer in the Church in the Province of New Zealand. The Episcopal Divinity School honored him with the endowment of the Harvey H. Guthrie Professorship of Biblical Studies.He was preceded in death by his wife of 70 years, Doris Peyton Guthrie, and their oldest son, Lawrence. He is survived by his three remaining children, Lynn, Stephen, and Andrew, and by three grandchildren, as well as by his brother, Jim.The Episcopal Church’s Burial Office and Eucharist will be celebrated at Trinity Episcopal Church, Fillmore, California, on Feb.17 at 10a.m. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to One Step a la Vez ( and Trinity Episcopal Church (PO Box 306, Fillmore, CA 93016).— This obituary was submitted by the Guthrie family.

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemText description provided by the architects. At the summit of Bellevue Hill a centennial Peppertree rises over the skyline; two homes lie beneath its vast canopy. To one side of the fence, The Oculus House and to the other, Peppertree Villa, a skilfully designed late 1920s home. One day the owners of the two homes met under this tree; they discussed botany and architecture. This was how Luigi Rosselli Architects came to be selected to respectfully revive and refresh this beautifully designed residence.Save this picture!© Prue RuscoeSave this picture!Ground floorSave this picture!© Prue RuscoeDuring the 1920s, while Europe sought to wash away the trauma of World War I through radical architectural styles such as constructivism and cubist inspired modernism, Australia chose to find comfort in the familiarity of classicism.  Mediterranean classicism provided the dominant source of inspiration for homes built at ‘the top end of town’.  With the Peppertree Villa, this classicism was expressed through a grand entry loggia or portico to the side of the house, and magnificent fireplaces and well-proportioned rooms to its interior.Save this picture!© Prue RuscoeThe aim of the Luigi Rosselli Architects improvements was to provide better flows between the various living spaces, open the spaces up to a new garden, and add a new basement garage, an attic room and a back yard swimming pool. A new stair was also added due to the necessity to connect the two new levels to the rest of the house, and to provide a more inviting ascension to the bedrooms on the upper floors. Save this picture!© Prue RuscoeSave this picture!First floor planSave this picture!© Prue RuscoeThe resulting stair takes the form of a suspended sculptural ribbon entirely detached from the walls of the stairwell.  Luigi had to jump up and down on the treads to convince both the client and the builder of its strength and stability before they would consent to remove the temporary supporting props.Save this picture!© Prue RuscoeEvery aspect of the design of the house was carefully workshopped by the Client (a renowned fashion designer), Project Architect Jane McNeill and Interior Designer Romaine Alwill.  Romaine’s mastery of architectural finishes brought the introduction of lush, tactile elements such as the stucco lucido (polished plaster), brass metalwork, solid timber panelling, resin based wall claddings and bronze finishes to the cabinets.Save this picture!© Prue RuscoeOn the ground floor, small timber windows have been replaced by larger, finely framed steel windows that offer uncluttered openings onto a new Myles Baldwin designed garden where the Peppertree still stands, casting a soft, dappled light across the walls and grounds of this villa reborn.    Save this picture!© Prue RuscoeProject gallerySee allShow lessLafonce · Maxone / Gonverge Interior DesignSelected ProjectsBarefoot Photography Studio / Quarta & ArmandoSelected Projects Share Interior Design: Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboardlast_img read more

New Dairy Revenue Protection Program Available

first_img Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter The American Farm Bureau Federation, American Farm Bureau Insurance Services, and other collaborators have developed a federal crop insurance product to help dairy farmers. AFBF Chief Economist John Newton says the product provides insurance for the difference between the revenue guarantee and actual milk revenue if prices or revenues decline, without capping production.“We recognized that there are dairy farms of all sizes. We wanted to make a program that would work for small, medium and large dairies. So there absolutely is no cap on how much milk you can insure under the Dairy Revenue Protection Program.”Producers can use the new program along with the Margin Protection Program. Newton says the program is farmer friendly.“The farmer who decides to buy for production they expect to produce has to meet those production thresholds that we set forth in the policy. But, we don’t need to see that you have plans to move dirt, or that you’ve bought cows in order to ensure that milk that you expect to come online.”Newton says policies will be available in October.“Crop insurance agents will be able to start unveiling premiums to farmers in a very short period of time. This is going to be on the market for sale October 9th. We’ve got all of our premium calculators set up so that you could see what premiums would be today if you were to go out and buy a policy.”Source: American Farm Bureau Federation Home Indiana Agriculture News New Dairy Revenue Protection Program Available Previous articleHoosier Ag This Week: August 18thNext articleCommentary: Why is the State Fair Such a Big Deal in Indiana?

Doesn’t really matter, as long as there is a dialogue where one can impugn the judgment of the court to be incorrectly decided, but your lordships will in fact welcome it. In none of these tweets you will find an iota of a discussion about the merits or demerits of the decision taken by your lordships. They are intended only to malign and scandalise the Supreme Court of India”- Senior Advocate PS Narsimha Tells SCHe further added that a person’s view is read and retweeted on social media and added, while referring to Kamra’s Contempt case which is also listed on Friday for orders.Attorney General KK Venugopal had granted consent to initiate contempt proceedings against her.A Law student had thereafter moved the Supreme Court seeking initiation of criminal contempt proceedings against the comic artist.”The three alleged posts in the form of cartoons/ caricatures have shaken the public trust and confidence in the judicial system of our constitutional democracy by directly attacking and making insinuations against the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India,” the plea filed by a 5th Year law student Aditya Kashyap through Advocate Namit Saxena said.The Attorney General for India, KK Venugopal had granted his consent to initiate contempt proceedings against the comic artist, last week. “The tweet is clearly calculated to undermine the public confidence in the independence and impartiality of the Supreme Court of India,” the AG had said.Attorney General Grants Consent For Contempt Action Against Artist Rachita Taneja For Illustrative Tweets Against Supreme CourtThe first tweet against which the AG gave consent for contempt was an illustration of Arnab Goswami intimidating Supreme Court by stating that BJP is his “Father”. Referring to the same the Petitioner has said,”on the face of it, the alleged contemnor has interfered with the administration of justice by portraying the Supreme Court and the current ruling party to be the father of the abovesaid journalist Mr. Arnab Goswami. This is in view to generate an impression that being the father of the said journalist, the Supreme Court was bound to grant him warmth and protection by keeping an arm around his shoulder and there was some nexus with the ruling establishment for this.”Another tweet for which the AG had granted consent refers to the Supreme Court as “Sanghi Court of India” with a saffron flag instead of the tricolour in the illustration. Referring to this the Petitioner said,”the said cartoon/caricature is highly contemptuous. The building of the Supreme Court has been drawn with the words “Sanghi Court of India”. That the very existence of this Hon’ble Court has been threatened by replacing the word ‘Supreme’ with ‘Sanghi’. That the expression ‘Sanghi’ is infact used to connote Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS). The alleged contemnor has expressed that the Supreme Court of the country is no more supreme but has transformed into a Sanghi Court. This is highly contumacious and without any basis whatsoever.”The plea further said,”That it is also noteworthy that the alleged contemnor has also replaced the national flag of the country with that of saffron flag of RSS at the helm of the building of the Apex Court of this country. This is clearly undermining the dignity of this Hon’ble Court by replacing a national emblem and is a direct assault on the independent institution of judiciary.”The third tweet alleged that there was a bargain by which the judgment pertaining to the Ram Mandir at Ayodhya was delivered to favour the BJP’s stand in exchange for a Rajya Sabha seat. Referring to this the Petitioner said,”not only is this post extremely defamatory to the institution of judiciary but is highly contemptuous with the use of the expression ‘business’ to denote dispensation of justice and portrays the entire Supreme Court in bad light.”The law student argued that it is trite law that the law of contempt of court is not to protect the institution of judiciary but to protect rights of citizens to have an independent and fearless judiciary.Reliance is placed on Re: Prashant Bhushan & Anr. (2020), where it was held that “Indian judiciary is considered by the citizens in the country with the highest esteem. The judiciary is considered as a last hope when a citizen fails to get justice anywhere. The Supreme Court is the epitome of the Indian judiciary. An attack on the Supreme Court does not only have the effect of tending an ordinary litigant of losing the confidence in the Supreme Court but also may tend to lose the confidence in the mind of other judges in the country in its highest court.”The Petitioner has urged the Top Court to take cognizance of the matter under Section 15(1)(b) of the Contempt of Courts Act, 1971 read with Rule 3 (c) of the Rules to Regulate Proceedings for Contempt of the Supreme Court, 1975, and initiate contempt proceedings.He has also sought a direction to restrain Taneja from publishing contemptuous posts on social media which scandalize and undermine the authority of the Supreme Court.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
