Tesla Model S as a Birthday Surprise For Arian on 9th Birthday

Project #TSLA4Tesla successfully resulted in a purchase of Tesla Model S for Arian on December 1, 2015. It was ordered in the first week of October 2015 when the balance was around $75k in the project #TSLA4Tesla. After considering tax rebate of $7500 by Federal Government and $2500 cash rebated by California state, this was enough to purchase one Tesla Electric car. (On the delivery day, the profit stood above $90k in TSLA stock trading). It was a bit difficult, psychologically, to send over $80,000 for a car. I never thought I would spend this much money to buy a car. However this was a deal with Arian so my hesitation was my problem LOL. I took some deep breaths and EFTed last payment of approx 80k from my bank account a few days before the scheduled delivery.

At the time of placing order, I wanted this car to be delivered on Arian's birthday which was on December 1st. The delivery agent from Tesla, Van Nuys, CA service station, Sophea Ing made it possible. Tesla is known for its excellent customer service. It fell a bit short though IMO LOL. I had asked Sophea to see if Tesla can add something like a Tesla cap or a sweatshirt for Arian so he can proudly show off his Tesla. Probably Arian is one of the leading Tesla fans among kids his age. That few bucks of generosity by Tesla would have proved to be the BEST MARKETING DOLLARS ever spent in terms of ROI. Arian would have proudly talked about how Tesla is a great car to his friends and whoever he met.  This could push them a bit towards becoming future customers of Tesla or some EV. Well, one who can pay for Tesla car can sure spend a few bucks. However I wanted to tell Arian that Tesla company gave that cap or sweatshirt to its special fan on his 9th birthday. I had asked Tesla Delivery Specialist the same but all she could get was a coffee mug and an umbrella for a customer in California where a chance of using an umbrella is as rare as winning a jackpot in some lottery LOL.

Arian didn't know his car was coming. A few days before his birthday, I was driving him to school. We were talking about Beats headphones. He was pursuing me to buy one for him. During our talk, at one point, I told him that for the money of one Tesla car, one can buy around 500 good headphones. I asked him what he would choose. He immediately said, "No, Tesla is the best". He wanted some video games too so (at the hint of another Tesla owner on MyTesla forums), I asked Arian if he still wanted a Tesla or would he like me to buy all video game systems in the world with all video games available. His answer was same, "Still, a Tesla". Doesn't this prove he is still a big fan of Tesla as much he was when I made this deal #TSLA4Tesla in the beginning of 2014?

On his birthday, I left my car at the local Walgreens parking lot and a friend gave me a ride to work. I took delivery of the car, drove it back to Simi Valley. I parked and left Tesla in the same parking lot in the evening. I drove home in my Honda Accord. As this was his birthday, we were going to local CPK as he wanted to celebrate his birthday there. He is a Pizza lover too ;) I asked my nephew Nihar Patel, 19, to drive us all to CPK. At that point, in privacy, I told Nihar about the Tesla. Nihar got excited and was surprised too. He also didn't know that I was purchasing a Tesla. Arian's mom didn't know it either. Only my older son, Miraj who is a UCSD student, knew it. He was unfortunately in San Diego preparing for his finals. Nihar was the third person in the family to know about this car. I asked Nihar to take some quick video and some photos to capture the moment when Arian met his dream car. When we were driving, I told everyone in the car that I needed to pick up some photos from Walgreens. I had Nihar park next to our Tesla. As Arian spotted this brand new Tesla in the next parking spot, he was excited as always to see a Tesla. This was probably the closest he was to a Tesla. (Same was true for me when I went to test drive a Tesla on the day of ordering. I had touched a Tesla first time that day!). As we come out of the car, and when Arian sees his car, well, feel those moments yourself. Nihar is not a great camera person lol (I myself try to take better photos but that is a different story) but he did capture the moment very well. Here is the video.



With Arian finally in his Tesla, this project #TSLA4Tesla, #Tradingwithapurpose concludes successfully. If you are curious to see all trades made in Tesla stock, click on this link.

Sold to open 4 calls of TSLA_112015C215 at $3 on 11/16/2015

Looks like Arian's luck is strong! I was a bit scared the way the selloff happened on Friday and TSLA tanked. I had put options which got in long position at $215! Luckily, the stock is moving up today! So I sold these Call options today. I would be happy to let go these stocks at $215 and keep the premium I got on options!

When it comes to matter of luck, luck- or things- whatever we call it plays out even. Today I also put a stock sell order for selling those 400 TSLA stocks at $214.98. If you check today's prices, the Tesla stock went as high as $214.97!!! I missed it by a penny! Not sure if #TSLA4Tesla wants to give more profit or wants us to lose more... Time will tell. I still have that order open for today though I may increase it to $215.98! When the stock came back to 214.97 and went down a bit, if it is to come back to this level, it might as well go up by another buck or so ;)

Sold to open 4 puts of TSLA_111315P230 at $5.95 on 11/09/2015

Now I am stuck with 800 short so I need to be active to cover that short so sold these put options to generate cashflow of around $2350. I was a bit scared the way the stock was trading above 230 last 2-3 days so probably I entered into this trade too soon but hey who knows the future!

Sold to open 4 puts of TSLA_110615P230 at $4.95

I didn't anticipate the stocks to respond this positively to the lack luster earnings. Few minutes before market closed yesterday, it seemed that no one wanted to buy this stock! Seemed like there were some significant liquidations or fresh short sales. Now look today, the situation has changed. Everyone wants TSLA today! Colors change faster in stock market than one would ever think. 
As I expected the Tesla stock to go down, I had some Call options sale. There is no way, I can make profit out of it so starting to sale PUT options. Here is one sale! I am going to watch how TSLA trades today!

Last few trades before I conclude #TSLA4Tesla project!
