Someone like Igor Cornelsen would certainly make certain that he is checking into each aspect of a specific company like Tesla before allocating his funds accordingly. Igor Cornelsen would do this because he would want to make sure that he allocates a portion of value to companies and then wait on them to grown.
For a company like Tesla, he would dive into the fundamentals and then he would have to look into what other factors would need to be accounted for.
Take for example, Tesla.
We can see that research and developments have steadily risen over the years as has selling and administrative costs. Costs have exceeded the revenues and so the company runs at an operating loss that varies each year.
Net income from continuing operations also has been negative.
Total net income has been a net negative.
Next, we can switch gears and look at the cash and cash equivalents. We see that cash has grown and has stayed steady over three to four years. We see that net receivables has and will continue to increase.
We can also see the current assets, as well as total assets, have also increased considerably over the years. The entity continues to increase its property, plant and equipment values.
We do see that total current liabilities do exceed the total current assets by a small margin. We see those total assets exceed total liabilities by a larger margin.
The strategic value story that Tesla has is the idea of autonomous vehicles, the self-driving aspect and the possibilities that could lead toward. This strategic aspect is playing out well, each car has some sort of autonomous capability that allows drivers to be more hands-off. This key component could bring about possibilities such as autonomous vehicle networks and provide deep value that others are quite interested in as well.
