This is why these types of companies often get crazy valuations: because there really no earnings to attempt to multiply. And, with no revenue, you get QS or RIVN. You can look at P/B and look at their filings to calculate growth trajectory keeping in mind to discount it by rate hikes. Honestly, best to stay away from these in this environment. Not many will be buying—and current holders will be looking to get out. When you have that situation, sellers look to sell at any price and it just tanks hard. Better places to put your money now, although the product is good.

Anyone that is interested in the battery/EV market, if you haven't seen this report I would definitely recommend it. It talks about big EV makers, deSPACs (SLDP, QS, MVST), SPACs (IVAN), and potential future SPACs (we hope). Honestly probably be a good idea for this to be a post so people can chat about it specifically. I personally haven't read the whole thing yet because it is very thorough and long. https://www.batterybrunch.org/battery-report

Puts are expensive due to the warrant "arbitrage", the disconnect of the warrants compared to the commons. Warrants are $25 while DWAC is around $70. People are shorting the commons and going long on the warrants. This also includes anything else that could give negative delta to offset the positive delta on the warrants like selling calls or puts.. This increases option IV and So just sell a common share short at $70 and long a warrant at $25.. Literally free money right? Sure if your able to hold your short position. But usually this turns into a squeeze as commons continue to march higher while the warrants under perform. If you manage to hold, the short fees evaporates all arb gains. This has happened to NKLA, QS, CHPT, ectra. Play at your own risk. I wouldn't take either side. https://www.specialsituationinvestments.com/2020/06/nikola-capital-structure-arbitrage-26-upside/

>*An acquisition would be costly exercise for them even if they have cash to burn. Why acquire when you can build in-house.* It's taken the leaders like SLDP and QS about 9 and 12 years respectively to get where they are today, TSLA cant just start research tomorrow and catch up in 6 months. Not to mention, the patent estate is entrenched enough between SLDP, QS, Sion Power, TM, etc.... that it would likely be a minefield to navigate if you're starting from nothing.

I will put QS top of that list. I believe they are actually behind Solidpower when it comes to the Solid State Battery, yet are worth 6X more.

Mentions:#QS

Pretty simple. TSLA needs to win the race to the the EV car company today, tomorrow can wait. And they have so much flipping money it's not even that much of a risk for them. Let's say one or more of QS or SLDP or Factorial Energy have a breakthrough in the next year or so? Okay, he's a big bucket with billions of dollars in it, and Must will just buy the company outright & they will no longer be "QuantumScape batteries" or "Solid Power batteries", but Tesla batteries upon aquisition.

Mentions:#QS

having a lithium metal anode with a separator that resists dendrites IS a solid state battery. the electrolyte is different for every battery, but none of the electrolytes are "actually" solid like people assume it means. QS has an organic gel as an electrolyte. SP has a sulfide based electrolyte. It's not a "solid" piece of anything, it has to be flexible in order to be folded into a battery. Sulfides actually have some disadvantages that are very significant. In fact, some of these could be hampering their ability to use an actual lithium metal anode. Without that, there is no energy density improvement.

Technically speaking nothing QS is doing at present is a true solid state battery. It’s a hybrid. Solid Power is 100% solid state and they are using a silicone anode at present.

I wish I would've waited til now to enter!!!

I agree. QS seems to me, to be the one who will end up on top. But it's a long time before you're going to see any big returns.

Mentions:#QS

Interesting! Seems about 85% pro $SLDP vs $QS. If you're interested, here's some solid DD that has some great info that a reddit user did on $SLDP (then $DCRC before the ticker change) that might help your decision: [**RECOMMENDATION: Buy Decarbonization Plus Acquisition Co. III (DCRC)**](https://www.reddit.com/r/SPACs/comments/nxibua/recommendation_buy_decarbonization_plus/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3)

> SLDP for sure at the current prices. No question in my mind, it’s also heavily shorted so they brought it down for a great entry for you. If you want to know the road map just look at their website and go to their investor relations presentation. Agreed. I'm not in $SLDP / Solid Power at the moment, but they're a much better pick-up from a value proposition. Moreover they seem to be further along than QuantamScape from what's been verified publicly. $QS was a product of perfect timing from a SPAC/market standpoint IMO.

Mentions:#SLDP#QS

Actually QS has only sent for independent testing their tiny 1 layer literally hand made lab cell. They claim they have verified “in house” a 10 layer cell but chose not to send that out. Unless anyone has different information. Compared to Solid Power producing cells for testing off of actual in house “demo” production line. Here’s a link for December 20, 2021 detailing the imminent upcoming milestones. https://solidpowerbattery.com/solid-power-meets-all-2021-milestones/ But I’d swear I saw in other articles that they had already sent out 20AH cells for outside testing in 2019 (BMW &Ford). Just not going to search for it now and am not 100% certain on that. But that WAS almost a year ahead of schedule in 2019 as originally 2020 was to be the time frame.

Mentions:#QS

If QS isn't a complete scam, they seem to have the better tech/product. Solid Power seems further away from an actual lithium metal cell to me. it almost seems like they will never have a lithium metal cell, although they still claim its in the roadmap. but they added another battery to their roadmap that isn't a true solid state battery, more just their electrolyte (sulfide) running on a traditional lithium/silicone/graphite anode like normal li-ion cells already do. So, yea it might be better than current li-ion tech, but sort of sounds like a dead end to me, when clearly a lithium metal anode is what is needed to get a significant range increase. QS has insisted from the very beginning their battery IS a lithium metal anode and the early prototypes have good performance. thats no guarantee they will get a one hundred layer cell operational, but i just feel like if i was going to dump all my money into something as a moon shot, it would be Quantumscape. There is no way the CEO escapes prosecution if he is lying about them having the secret ceramic separator that enables a true lithium metal cell. if its a lie, then he has lied about it repeatedly to investors on multiple documented occasions and his entire career would be done. So i kind of doubt he's lying. i think they really do have a high performance ceramic separator that took them a long time to come up with and is highly valuable IP. Whether they can convert that into a functioning product is a long shot but it does actually seem like they are making progress.

Mentions:#QS#IP

Actually the opposite is true with independent verification size of cells and scope. QS “claims” they have verified in house their 10 layer tiny, literally hand made lab cell. But when they actually sent one outside for independent testing they didn’t send the 10 layer one … they sent the 1 layer tiny lab cell. (far as I know and have read. Unless someone else has a link to contrary information) While Solid Power send 20 layer 20AH cells out to whoever wanted to test them back in 2019, almost a year ahead of the original 2020 targeted milestone. That were produced in house either totally or almost totally on their “demo” automated production line.

Mentions:#QS

Yes, it's a slightly different business model from QS who has achieved 10 layer deep cells, independently verified. I believe both companies have a place. Ergo the handcuff strategy. It's really a personal pick. I like them both, so I bought both. I think battery tech is going to grow hugely

Mentions:#QS

I’ve been a fan of QS and agree now is a great time to invest, just go in long term with it. With this type of high speculative industry I like to mix it up with other companies and I’m sure 5-10 years out i will have some winners.

Mentions:#QS

But again, all that can happen if they stick to it and make quality batteries because other established companies are running too like Toyota. QS is backed by Volkswagen so it’ll be nice to see an increase in work and jobs.

Mentions:#QS

Thanks for commenting, from what I have read QS are preparing prototypes that will be delivered to VW 2023-24 and then they will beging on manufacturing QS1 spec batteries from 2025 ready to be shipped which is about 4 or so years from now. If that timescale is true then QS will be well ahead of Solid Power.

Not counting ETFs, at the moment, QS. It's a bit of a gamble, but if it does pay off in 4+ years, then I'll be in a *very* good position, and if it doesn't, it's money I can afford to lose. It's definitely less than 10% of my portfolio--maybe less than 5%, but I'd have to check--and I can afford to wait.

Glad to finally see some thoughtful pushback against Tesla rather than the usual "THEIR PE IS 1000!", but I still agree with most of your points. > 1 Are there going to be twice as many total cars sold 5 years from now as there is than now? No. Clearly not. Therefore Tesla, Rivian etc are all fighting over a pretty stable market. Tesla, Rivian, etc. are not fighting with each other, but with the ICE market. The is already way more demand for EVs than there is supply, especially in the low price points. There is no cannibalization amongst EV sales, except for the really bad EVs made by legacy automakers that are seeing sales collapse after the first 6-18 months (cars like the Nissan Leaf, Renault Zoe, etc.). > 2 Did you know 364 million of last quarters profit was from carbon sales to other car companies? > 3 Not only do credible offerings from other manufacturers make it harder for Tesla to grow sales, it also means those manufacturers won’t need to buy carbon credits > 4 Tesla has been highly supported by government support for ev sales and credits. This is ramping down while other mfgs are going to get these benefits A year ago their entire earnings were due to ZEV credits, now it's just 10% of their earnings, in a year it'll be a negligible amount. ZEV credits going away wouldn't even matter for Tesla at this point. It's also worth pointing out that other automakers have had a $7,500 incentive on their EVs that Tesla and GM haven't had for a while, and still Tesla is easily outselling them all. Government incentives going away would be a bigger problem for legacy automakers than for Tesla. > 5 More competition means more pricing pressure. "Competition" has been increasing over the last two years, yet we've seen Tesla's demand increase despite continuous price increases. On top of that, Tesla's margins are so incredibly high while legacy automakers aren't even making money on their EVs, if price pressure ever becomes a thing in EVs, Tesla would easily have the longest breath. > 6 Tesla has done amazing things, i also find they have wildly over hyped many of their capabilities (you do know they don’t even make their own batteries right). This is not correct. Not only do they design the batteries that other manufacturers make for them, they're also making their own batteries since almost 2 years ago now. > 7 solar city? Totally cronyism acquisition with very bad execution/slow market. I agree with this one. Energy store has been incredibly lucrative for Tesla, but the solar business has been a drag. I don't think the acquisition was a poor one per se, but the trouble Tesla went through in 2017 with the Model 3 ramp which required them to pull all Solar City personnel off solar panels and have them assist the Model 3 production lines heavily hurt their solar business. Perhaps they'll be able to turn this around eventually, but it's been a massive let down in the past 5 years. > But most importantly, they are priced for true perfection. Remember, they actually make things. People talk about them as if they are a “tech company” as if they were a software firm where each incremental sale is pure profit. That’s silly. They are a car and roofing company. Their profit margins will shrink as competition emerges This is where I most disagree. If you think Tesla is not a tech company, or you think they "just make things", you don't understand the company. Tesla "makes things" in a way that nobody has ever made things before. Their agile design and production process is revolutionizing the way manufacturing is done, and the fact that within just 10 years they were able to completely revolutionize the way a car is built with things like the Octo Valve and single-piece casted underbodies says it all. If all of this is news to you, I suggest you watch [this interview](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pk4Ygmd8fLc) with a former Amazon, Microsoft, Toyota and Tesla employee. It's an amazing insight into how different Tesla works compared to other companies. > So- net net- cool company with an ultra high valuation in a stable sized, low margin market where there will be many competitors. > To me that is a high risk investment. I would rather pick people with true technology advantages like QS for my moon shot bets and companies like GM that have low multiples with credible exciting new products in the space for upside potential. To me, Tesla is an extremely low risk, high reward stock and those are incredibly rare. I don't think their margins will decrease as competition emerges, since their margins are coming from manufacturing advantages, I think they will increase. But even if they don't increase, if Tesla sells 7.5 million cars annually by 2030 (38% of their 20M target), with an ASP of $45,000 (slightly lower than today accounting for a cheaper model but also inflation), at an operating margin of 14% (today's value) and 20% taxes leaves a $37.8B profit, at a PE of 20 (extremely cheap with these kinds of margins and growth) gives you a valuation of $756B, and that's excluding their energy business and everything else they're doing that other automakers don't. The downside is very limited, but the upside if they get to 20 million cars sold, increased margins, FSD software and robotaxis, a solid energy and solar business, or anything else they're currently doing or will do in the future, is massive.

New to options but decided to buy puts on QS, SLDP & CHPT. So far they’ve all printed. I bought puts on LCID for next week. Ran Friday but I’m thinking next week it’ll drop since it hadn’t held 40$ for longer than 2 days in the last month. I think if we are starting to impact “valuations” these companies will continue to downtrend for sometime. But I did buy calls on FVRR because I do think it’ll thrive but man it’s been beaten down. Also come Monday I’m buying puts on LULU. This is a falling knife IMO. Mirror sales projected down, lawsuit on patent infringement and it goes on. Curious on everyone else’s thoughts tho? Always open to insight

Hi. I am happy to have a respectful argument around I think you missing the point on the total market value and also profitability 1. Are there going to be twice as many total cars sold 5 years from now as there is than now? No. Clearly not. Therefore Tesla, Rivian etc are all fighting over a pretty stable market. 2. Did you know 364 million of last quarters profit was from carbon sales to other car companies? 3. Not only do credible offerings from other manufacturers make it harder for Tesla to grow sales, it also means those manufacturers won’t need to buy carbon credits 4. Tesla has been highly supported by government support for ev sales and credits. This is ramping down while other mfgs are going to get these benefits 5. More competition means more pricing pressure. 6. Tesla has done amazing things, i also find they have wildly over hyped many of their capabilities (you do know they don’t even make their own batteries right). 7 solar city? Totally cronyism acquisition with very bad execution/slow market. But most importantly, they are priced for true perfection. Remember, they actually make things. People talk about them as if they are a “tech company” as if they were a software firm where each incremental sale is pure profit. That’s silly. They are a car and roofing company.

To me that is a high risk investment.

There are mini-bubbles in the market. EV's, green energy, SPAC's, even marijuana. SPAC's and green energy already crashed and burned. Marijuana went boom to bust in 2018. EV's mostly have come back to reality. Look at $QS (down 80%+ from high). $PLUG down 66%. $NKLA down 90%. $TLRY down over 95%. There aren't many Rivians left standing right now. Electric vehicle market valuations are all messed up because of $TSLA. So long as TSLA maintains its absurd valuation, you will get these competitor vapor stocks at stupid valuations. I think TSLA is the most bubbly stock left.

Sorry, but kinda a dumb comment. Are you asking for censorship? The low floats are risky but most of the posts I’ve read have been presenting mostly facts with some false promises. But how’s that different than posting DD on DCRC and saying it will match QS market cap? The best way the mods could protect the members of this subreddit is telling everyone not to buy spacs lol

Adam Jonas will cover it. He likes QS more than most so that could either be good or bad.

Makes sense, figured they were waiting for the pipe to go effective, but this tech sell off can't be helping things. Interested to see if sldp initation comes with a lower QS PT.

SLDP dumping while QS is up. Incredible

Mentions:#SLDP#QS

Do you know if QS had a similar short interest when it de-SPACed? I know it dipped hard (like 50% off of the DA pop) and then ripped. I HATE how everything has to be short squeeze now, but if short interest keeps driving us down and then the test cell results come out, could we see the “moon shot” happen after all? I bought in on the 1/10th the market cap of QS with better tech bull thesis and still stand by it. But fuck I just hate seeing such a big paper loss..

Exactly, I just love everyday some one will compare a stock to QS and they do not understand the valuation. Why is my stock not valued better or at least even to QS.

Mentions:#QS

Whats the outlook of QS?

Mentions:#QS

PT of $30 for SLDP, with lowest PT for QS at $26 (even when they will lower QS PT to $20) doesn't sound bad for a starter. But we know there's very very very low chance for that. Still singers crossed.

Mentions:#SLDP#QS

That's what I've been wondering actually! The discrepancy between QS and SLDP is so big and nonsensical that I feel like it'd be hard to put out a price target with a straight face.

Mentions:#QS#SLDP

I'd say one reason could be fact where QS is. Aside of that SLDP to $50 please ;)

Not a bad idea. The strategy I chose to follow is one of David Alan Carters - a trader who’s book I found to be pretty interesting about how you can beat the market by rotating broad market indexes at the right time - going to cash in a downturn to avoid drawdowns and capitalizing on long term trends. I wanted something with very minimal maintenance but a little better than a lazy buy and hold which has no real exit strategy. I allocated 85% of my portfolio to his “American Muscle” strategy which is a bit more risky and tech / growth heavy.. what I didn’t account for was the other 15% are left over from my 2021 moves and can’t bring myself to sell - mostly individual stocks that are mostly also in the tech space (NIO, QS, CRM etc) so ended up with way more tech exposure than I wanted. Anyway I pared down the 85% to 60%. Not proud of my paperhandedness but i worry about the fed tightening in this environment and what that means for tech Will look into balancing the portfolio with some more value perhaps.. anything else you recommend looking into?

Buy more QS. Sell anything u are unsure of and put it into QS. That's what I'm doing. NFA.
