Jim Cramer and Rob Maurer Discuss Tesla's Q1 Earnings

"One of the biggest earnings reports to come so far this week has been tesla came last night. Now i want to bring on his various guests raum our host daily and an investor in tesla. Now rob i want to start by discussing tesla's overall earnings which should beat wall street. Expectations and revenue was up. Seventy four percent from a year ago kentucky this momentum going. Yeah definitely think so. I think what we're seeing a little bit of a sell off. Today is probably a lot of excitement than tends to build into earnings and then when there's no massive surprise or something like that. Although tested beat they were driven by some one time items when there's no massive surprise or updated guidance or something like that investors can move onto the next thing but for investors that are willing to take a long-term view on tesla which most people should be this really you know decade-long girl stories. We've talked about. I think you know. There's a lot to be excited about from from their innings. Report yesterday rob. How much did they really make it. Back up the credits. That cup the Yeah so they reported a non gap net income of just over a billion dollars. Half of that was regulatory credits. So about half a billion there One hundred million came from the sale of bitcoin so tests on key one acquired about one and a half billion in bitcoin. They sold about ten percent of their stake. Somewhere around fifty percent profit on on that sale of about one hundred hundred billion or one hundred million there so backing out those things You know they earned about four hundred million dollars but On a non gab basis on a gap baselessly Technically back out the regulatory credits. They still have lost. But that's not a great way to look at it. Tesla has super high stock based compensation right now because of elon. Musk's co compensation plan three hundred million dollars of their stock based compensation. This quarter was because of musk's plan. That's not gonna continue. There's only about seven hundred million dollars left in total on the plan yet to be recognized. So if tesla continues the pace that they were out in key one. That's only gonna continue for a more quarters. And i think over the next few quarters. We're gonna see that decline anyway as It's just gonna take a little bit longer for the rest of that to be recognized.

"four hundred million dollars" Discussed on Your Favorite Band Sucks

"Sometimes greed sometimes to cover their tax bill which i guess maybe some artists had some outstanding tax payments that they had to bank which is weird because you're still going to pay taxes on the lump sum. Well the other thing is some people think that biden is probably going to hike the capital gains right right here. I mean there's a lot of money you're gonna get to keep by taking this ahead of potential capital gain raise. That's a whole separate topic of paying taxes and important part of i mean i get it. Nobody wants to pay taxes. But it's also an important part of being american and having a business that you generate hundreds of millions of dollars in wealth like sorry but you gotta pay taxes. We all do so many ways. I guess for some artists. Somebody sits down with you and they have clout they. Don't look like this suit. I guarantee you if the investment banker sat down with these artists and said i'll give you a four hundred million dollars you would. They'd be like fuck you fuck. You know what i mean like but someone sits down with you eight. You may be you know or has a name you actually take the meeting and maybe when they convinced you that giving up the rights to your music which means you will have no control over it for the rest of your life is worth whatever. Check that they're willing to write you the other thing. Is that the examples that you through around. Were examples of the multiple that hypnosis is paying upwards of fifteen to twenty times the yearly revenue. But like what was standard before this guy sort of doing this was like ten. Like eight to ten is what publishing companies were paying to acquire which is also insane. I mean honestly. Most companies would sell for like three times earnings. Give someone fifteen or twenty times. They would earn now. Here's the catch to that. If i give you twenty times if it's supposedly going to take me twenty years to recoup my investment no fucking way. Is that actually going to happen. What is going to happen sooner or later..

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo again refuses to resign

"Have been moving fast. In governor cuomo's ever expanding set of scandals of the past forty eight hours from the news that his office apparently reached out to a number of different former employees to see if they'd spoken to The first accuser which seems weird an intimidating and it turns out that a former aide says that it was in fact intimidating and she felt bewildered by it to yesterday during an emergency meeting and state assembly announcing is going to be Starting an impeachment inquiry involving both the allegations of sexual harassment and assault as well as the nursing death scandal to about forty percent of his entire parties members in the assembly in the senate signing on asking for him to immediately resign and then there was this morning when representative alexandria ocasio. Cortez tweeted that after two accounts of sexual assault four counts of harassment. The attorney general's investigation. Finding the governor's admitted nursing home data from the legislature in public saying we agree with the fifty five plus members of new york state legislature. That the governor must resign. There was a letter that she put out with congressman bowman then at least eleven of the democratic house representatives from new york called for him to resign and just including jerry nadler button adler by the way and then just as we were going live. Senators schumer and gillibrand both also said that. His time for the governor to resign. As of this afternoon he said that he would would not which is what they always say until they do but he seems like a fighter jank for. What do you think is he. Is he gonna stick around no matter how many people tell them if biden gets involved yeah. I'm really curious what you think. Francesca there's one part of this tournament so that's already interesting of they. There's nothing that i'm talking about. In regards to andrew cuomo he's establishment democrat extraordinary. and he. he's been wrong on so many issues. and he's attacked progressives and good meaning people in behind the scenes a thousand different ways and a he's a political apparatchik extraordinarily now he's claiming like oh i'm just a regular joe. Your name is cuomo governor governor. Don't pretend you're one of us okay. You're an ultimate insider. Any use insider system to attack all of your opponents. You've done it for decades and and as anna keeps pointing out rightfully so the guy caught four hundred million dollars for medicaid actually overall customer is slated to be two and a half billion dollars to talk about of doing it in the middle of the pandemic delayed for after the pandemic but some of the cuts had already that he had done was the reason why they didn't have enough hospital beds and that's why he then took. Two people from the hospital was put in in the nursing homes and then everybody died nursing homes and so for all those reasons he already was a terrible governor from a perspective of people who i was gonna say progresses but really anybody critique of him is correct is my point sexual harassment issue. The only thing i have here is that. And that's why i'm curious. Were both of you guys. Think about it part of me thinks okay yes. Let's go through. The process like seles. Allegation is groping. If that's if that's true that's he should be gone within the minute right. So that's not an that's not a question. The question is how are these. Six six is a lot on the other hand. If you remember al franken it had piled up to be a big number but every one of them was like a fake picture. We took her picture once and put his hand around my shoulder and they were like. Oh levitin mike though. That's not eleven right. That's let's have an investigation so there is a part of me that says is you know. Do we have a. We sure that these are all true. One hundred percent. We can act on it and i get the other point. Which is they all. Have to be one hundred percent true. There's six of them. It looks like we've got an obvious pattern here. So francesca what are you. Oh yeah no. There's when this first broke weeks ago. I was like i've never been more sure that there was a giant iceberg underneath this very very tiny little tip that we're seeing sticking out of the water. You knew the goal and just it's it's his. I don't know. I'm not trying to be anti talion as someone like. Don't don't go to the mafias a brand new things but like the guy in clearly in exactly all the reason that you said in the ways it. He's bullied around his political opponents for years in the ways that he is so trump being in that he's got an gotten everything from his father and then also in the cavalier ways because some of these incidents were while he was rising to stardom. Which i gotta say man. It's been real fun to watch him fall as someone who was never on board for the rise who was look. It's a doing the absolute bare minimum the absolute bare minimum thing. You should do believing in science locking locking things down even though. I don't even think he did that. Amazing of a job. Yes i said it like. It's been nice to watch like. Oh here's the real cuomo and and like it's funny to me that there are so many cuomo's around this country there are so many sort of middling mediocre like kind legacy politicians dynastic politicians. who escaped by they. They assault a couple people. They bully their opponents but they kind of then. Then they get applauded. They come out with a book and they're fine. But i feel like the meteoric rise that he had under covert and the way that he laid into it so much just set him. He set himself up. It's like you could have just the way that trump could have been absolutely fine. Just doing cameos on home alone. Five or whatever it was and then he had to go and run for president And now we're looking at his taxes. So look here's my thing about resignation. I feel like it's a little bit of an escape hatch. And i think for when it comes to actually having investigation actually and as painful it as it is like having the people came forward to testify or discuss it absolutely like not or at least have an investigation. I don't know what it would look like. it feels. There would be more accountability. And i think that so many creeps and so many predators getaway in the workplace because there's no accountability to begin with so i'm not even sure if immediate resignation is accountability. Do do you know what i'm saying. Yeah i actually francesca. I love that point in that gets the another problem in the political system. So cuomo keep saying. I you know i wanted attorney general to do. Finish the investigation as letitia james and if we all believed that our democracy was on the level and politicians warn politicians. I'd say definitely finished investigation. Because i wanted to if he did it and we get it then that gives us closure as opposed to well. He's resigning you to deny it forever. Because then they won't bother finishing the investigation et cetera. Right but the problem is i. Don't trust politicians so is cuomo part of the reason cuomo's doing because he wants to delay it and then he thinks if i can just delayed thousand other political maneuvers to avoid it and the and then he keeps saying he wants so much that i a wonder is fisher. James doesn't look like a political ally of cuomo based on her previous experience right but one if she is something we don't and then they a bs investigation. Those women took you know suffer a second injustice so you think yeah and i just think it's important to mention though that like the investigation of sexual assault or harassment claim. Is it so hard because it is always a. He said she said type of situation. Which is why we have. Things like the slogan survivors right And believe women which because you have predators who will always deny it. I do not foresee a future in which andrew cuomo admits. Anything that i can be sure of. We might hear more about the stories from the from the staffers and the and the people who were he victimized but i do not foresee him being. I guess i remember doing that. No it's not gonna happen so again. I just want set that up that it's not a fair you're never gonna get to the truth kind of thing.

Community-powered solutions to the climate crisis

"Home. It's where we celebrate our triumphs. Make our memories and confront our challenges and these days there are plenty of those an historic pandemic wildfires floods and hurricanes all threaten our basic safety. These challenges hit even harder in communities that have been cut out of equal opportunities in the us. Unfair and racist housing policies called redlining have for decades forced black brown indigenous and poor white families into areas rife with toxic chemicals that make people sick. They're surrounded by concrete that traps extreme temperatures demand more cooling more money more energy more carbon. Our problems are interconnected. Imagine all we can do when we realized the solutions are two at the solutions project. We've seen that some of the people most impacted by covid nineteen least likely to have a steady place to call home and most affected by the damage to our climate are already working on effective and scalable solutions. Take buffalo in miami where affordable housing has become a community solution to the climate crisis. Buffalo new york is the third poorest city in the united states and six small segregated but our people. How're is strong. Over the last fifteen years my organization push buffalo has been working with residents bill ren- affordable housing deploy renewable energy and to roll the resilience in power in our communities. We saw heating bills soar over the last pay. We organized state policy help. Small businesses into our people to work. By the rising homes we responded with equal landscaping ingredient infrastructure when record rainfalls flooding our neighborhoods. We replaced the concrete that overwhelmed and may heat ways unbearable. Let us visit school. Seventy seven and eighty thousand square foot public school building that was closed and abandoned for nearly a decade but pushed off low in the community transforms to solar power forcible senior apartments and a community center. This is what the community wants it when private developers were school building for high end loft apartments eight hundred residents mobilized came up with a plan. We became new york. State's first community. Solar projects in during the coronavirus pandemic abon tier running mutual at catalyst. Miami anga miami climate alliance. We work with dozens of other organizations to enact policies. Ride safe housing anthrax climate. Here in miami. We've seen a four hundred percent increase in tidal flooding between two thousand six and twenty sixteen. And i've seen forty nine additional ninety degree days per year since nineteen seventy. We fought for the miami forever. Bond to fund four hundred million dollars for affordable housing and climate solutions. Yet every day we continue to see luxury high rise condos being built in our neighborhoods added more concrete in heat on the ground. Some of our members are taking matters into their own hands. Literally conscious contractors is a grassroots collective that formed during hurricane irma to protect rebuild and beautify our communities all while increasing energy efficiency. They don't think that anyone should have to choose between paying a high a. c. bill and living in a hot in moldy house that will worsen respiratory illnesses such as asthma or corona virus. They fix problems at the source. Advocates across the country are holding their governments accountable. Climate solutions that keep their communities in place we need to push from reportable housing green infrastructure and flip protections because these are the solutions that solve many problems at once.

Citigroup CEO Michael Corbat Addresses Bank's Risk Management Deficiencies

"Was fined four hundred million dollars earlier this month for lacking adequate risk controls and entered into a consent order with a Federal Reserve should investors be concerned about that. Well, I would say first, you know, we are disappointed that we fall short of our Regulators expectations and as we've said very publicly as an institution, we are fully committed to thoroughly addressing the issues identified in those consent words as part of that. There are four main areas of focus in there around risk management data governance controls and compliance and I think what important what ties these together is, you know, the the the need or desire to continue the modernization of our infrastructure our governance in our process dead. And we have had remediation programs in place. And while we've been making progress against those we're simply not where we need to be and and we acknowledge that and and I would say wow. This is is disappointing. We are committed to addressing the issues and you know continuing to kind of push forward in those areas that we've described. You know, we've already begun making structural changes celebrating our programs and Investments and you know as a firm, I think we're absolutely laser focused on automating processes ensuring accurate data can be assessed quickly and and we're I you know is reproducing management regulatory reports it again, nine months into the crisis, you know, those systems have served us well, but we can certainly make them better.

Why Athletes Want Trademarks for Everything

"Sir ryan. I'm super curious. How did you land on trademarks as something to write about in the first place. Well i was actually working with as an editor on a story. Earlier this spring about the buffer brothers ryan hawkins smith is an editor and writer for espn dot com and he reported on the rise of athletes seeking trademarks which saw an enormous uptick in two thousand. Twenty michael bruce buffer Most people know the michael for let's get ready to rumble. Yes we work on this story. We discovered some numbers that we thought could not be right and the numbers were that trademark alone. That one sentence that michael says in the ring may have netted the buffer brothers north of one hundred million. Maybe three four hundred million dollars over the years but yeah it was bonkers but it checks out that one phrase it's a business unto itself like one of my favorite details. We were working on this. There's a website for michael buffer and. Let's get ready to rumble where you can go and rat out people you have seen or heard using that phrase get ready to rumble and in return for being a horrible internet informant. They will mail us some buffer merge and then they will pursue legal action so i was just thinking as i read all of this. I got a dive into this world. I need to know more. So i want to be very clear about this. Then what's the motive for filing a trademark ryan. If you're an athlete so a lot of trademarks can be quite lucrative. I bet we ended up talking quite a bit about the ones that make a lot of money. The vast majority though are athletes protecting themselves protecting their trademark. Just in case because the reality is when you think about hail murray as big play as that was and as much as it it resonated in the sports world like how much money. How many t shirts saying hail marie are. They actually going to sell like if they're lucky. What fifty thousand dollars. It costs a couple thousand dollars to to get an attorney and to get a trademark so it's actually a really bad business plan most of the time but it makes sense that you would go and protect your athlete like the last thing i think a manager or a business advisor wants is to have to come to kyla murray after murray says hey why am i seeing coffee mugs outside the stadium that have my raise and picture on them so it's mostly about protection. This is also an industry that you say has been not only connected to sports and athletes for decades and decades. It's also changed in the past decade or so. How did that come to be. There's two answers. The short basic answer is that good athletes have management people around them at bigger teams than ever think about this stuff all of the time but i go down a rabbit hole about the more meta answer which is applications went from two hundred sixty nine thousand in the united states in two thousand eight to twice that in twenty twenty Oh a small number actually athletes. So this is a society thing. And so the wormhole that i go down is just how much humans are more cognizant of the idea of celebrity and individual branding than ever before and you could point to social media for some of that. You can point to the kardashians. Maybe even donald trump as examples of successful personal branding

DoorDash releases filing to go public

"Door dash has filed. Its s with the sec. Which of course is the first step in an ipo. They will be listing their shares on the new york stock exchange under the ticker symbol dash. Das h. and speaking of dash we're expecting there to be a dash of companies rushing to go public before the end of the year. We're expecting roadblocks wish affirm airbnb all to file within weeks but back to door dash. Ns one means we finally get to take a look at the underlying business in a debut in company. Jordache reported that they had one point nine billion dollars in revenue for the first nine months of twenty twenty on which they lost one hundred and forty nine million dollars compare that to revenue of only five hundred eighty seven million dollars a year ago and a loss of five hundred and thirty three million dollars. Coding alex willem in tech crunch door to ashes. A heavily backed company with crush base reporting that the food delivery giant has accessed around two point. Five billion dollars in capital during its life most recently in a four hundred million dollar around this june at the time doordash was valued at a towering sixteen billion dollars post money giving the company big valuation shoes to fill. When at prices it's ipo and begins to trade jordache has grown incredibly rapidly scaling. Its revenues from two hundred ninety one million dollars in two thousand eighteen to eight hundred eighty five million dollars in twenty thousand nine and more recently from five hundred eighty seven million dollars on the first nine months of twenty nine thousand nine to one point nine two billion dollars in the same period of twenty twenty that is two hundred and twenty six percent growth in two thousand twenty thus far these sort of expansion. That explains why door dash was able to attract so much capital at such high prices. How high quality is ashes revenue in the first. Three quarters of two thousand nineteen the company had gross margins of thirty nine point nine percent and in the same period of two thousand twenty the figure rose to fifty three point. One percent a huge improvement for the consumer consumable delivery confab. The result of door dashes epic growth and gross margin. Improvement has been radically improving profitability. The companies operating loss fell from four hundred. Seventy nine million dollars on the first nine months of twenty and nineteen to just one hundred and thirty one million dollars in the same period of twenty twenty door dashes net losses are slightly worse. Five hundred thirty three million and one hundred and forty nine million over the same timeframe respectively but again compared to the company's top line growth and revenue quality improvements are inconsequential. Jordache has around one point. Six billion dollars in cash and equivalents heading into the fourth quarter. Meaning that it has ample cash to fund itself sands an ipo. The company is there for going out because it thinks the time is ripe and quote. Yeah that's a bigger better business than. I certainly expected growing faster than i expected. But then maybe. I shouldn't be surprised because you know covid but also positively improving gross margins. Maybe they think they need to get out the door now before a vaccine actually shows up and maybe stalls their growth a bit

Takeaways from the NYT report on Trump's tax returns

Takeaways from the NYT report on Trump's tax returns

"Never give a tax return when being audited. They're extremely complex people wouldn't understand him now the house goes and such defending they WANNA know every deal. I've ever done since declaring his candidacy for President Donald? Trump. Has refused to share his tax returns and gone to court to stop them being released. On Sunday The New York Times published an investigation into more than twenty years worth of Mr Trump's taxes, but not the documents behind them to protect its sources. The New York Times an explosive report despite receiving over four hundred, million dollars through two thousand eighteen report showed he paid paltry amounts of federal tax in recent years. The report claims that Mr Trump paid remarkably little tax since the turn of the Millennium. It suggests that many of the president's businesses are chronically loss-making. and it puts numbers to just how deeply personally indebted the president is. The revelations prompted a familiar retorted. News it's totally fake news made up fake. We went through the same store as you could ask me the same questions for years ago had a litigated this and talk about it. They are the same questions questions that arose in the presidential debates between Mr Trump and Hillary Clinton almost exactly for years ago maybe he doesn't want the American people. All of you watching tonight to know that he's paid nothing in federal taxes because trump's rebuttal at the time that makes me smart smart. Tonight another set of presidential debates this time between Mr Trump and Joe Biden. It seems certain that once again, Mr Trump's accounting practices will figure into the discussion. The big headline takeaways on that he paid. No federal income tax whatsoever intended the fifteen years through two, thousand seventeen and in twenty sixteen seventeen the year that he ran for the presidency his first year old in the presidency he paid any seven hundred fifty dollars in federal Income Tax James. Ashville economists, Washington bureau chief. His company's myriad companies were making truly enormous losses over these years. Presidents companies have been losing hundreds of millions of dollars. He's heavily indebted at the same time, and the the record also show us that hundreds of millions of debt. In fact, around four hundred millions of data he's personally on the hook for his liable to fall due mostly within the next couple of years. So it creates a picture of a heavily heavily indebted loss-making businessman on a truly Gargantuan scale who's been paying little or no federal income tax and has serious debt worries ahead of him as he faces a cash crunch meanwhile. But how can it be? He's paid. So little tax over all of that time. I guess two main ways one is that he appears to be setting a large amount of personal family expenditure against his business revenues. For example, he is setting his family home expenses, his plane expenses, even his apparently also colossal head writing expenses against VAT revenue but by far, the biggest means that he's avoiding paying large amounts of tax walls taking in hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue is by setting those revenues against the enormous losses that he's making overall to give you just some taste of the scale of that loss making it. Seems that the president has lost more than three, hundred, million dollars since the turn of the century on his golf courses alone he's lost more than fifty five, million dollars on his Washington DC hotel, which has become a sort of symbol for trump world of the president's firm hold on the capital, and yet it seems it's losing money hand over fist, and all of that is above board. He may already been some difficulty over the scale of losses that he's claiming to set against his revenues. The long trailed audit that his tax affairs. From the IRS we learn relate to attacks refunded that he received decade or so ago of seventy-three million dollars related, it appears to loss-making casinos in Atlantic city a business that he walked away from though we don't know it appears that there is an least an allegation or suspicion that he may have profited from those casinos even as he walked away from. Them if that is the case, he's not liable that tax refund that tax refund plus subsequent interest would now mean a hundred million dollar bill for the president. From the IRS, are you yourself surprised I mean that the president has been fighting so hard to keep this under wraps I just wonder how much you're surprised by what you see in these files. I don't think we're surprised by any of this. We already knew something of the scale of the president's loss-making. He declared a loss of nearly a billion dollars back in the ninety s sufficient to avoid paying any federal income tax for around a couple of decades that was in the sense is remarkable as anything that we've learned from this latest enormous cache of additional detail. But there are a couple of really significant scoops and then the fact that he could be on the. Hook for so much money from the IRS. If the audit goes against him in the fact that he's personally liable for so many hundreds of millions of dollars of loan that will fall due in the next few years. That also is a very significant detail in for those that worry that the president may be compromised that his indebtedness could lead him to make judgements that the American people might have calls to question for those worries. This is I think sort of additionally inflaming. But I mean the picture that emerges here regardless of the creativity of the accounting is somebody who is not running businesses very well. So. Donald Trump entered politics back in twenty fifteen claiming to things that he would bring his business genius to the Serbs the American people make government work better, and that he would sort of right the wrongs that lofty elite were habitually visiting upon the hardworking vulnerable American people and I think the of broad takeaway from this trove of tax information is either Donald Trump is an absolutely appalling businessman in which case is I claim is hard to support or he's bilking the treasury of millions of dollars of avoided tax that he should be paying in which case his second contention is also rather heart support. And do you think either I if either can be parched or or stood up, we'll have any influence on the election on the debates this week. Let's let's break that down Jason I. Think this is not going to be a sort of major vote moving scandal. We've had equivalent scandals that have that have not moved the president's support up or down much a tool and I. think there's no reason to expect this to do so and yet it's significant significant. Because the president opinion polls consistently tell us is substantially behind Joe Biden in this race with only little more than a month to go before the election. What this does is put yet another hurdle in front of his trying to re come on the news cycle get on the front foot, take the attack to Mr Biden nine. We may see some of that in the first presidential debate tonight where Joe Biden has really been handed the script by the New York Times as it of opening attack on a president who loses so much money in his business of as pays such little taxes and result.

And he's pulling polemically argumentative, and he might be able to answer some of these things we're talking about like where this all's coming from. I know where it's coming from coming from everybody at their worst. This is this is how kids talk and adults feel informally didn't talk about it inner stamina, I'm saying kind of everyone has a feeling. Saying that feeling. True. I'm listening. I'm sending that the Gary go ahead everybody. I always kinda use this as an example kind of like in the past if you're with a young lady or vice versa. Then at some point they dumped you and at some point your heart was broken and some months later your party, and they showed up with their new partner your impulses ago, a little shorter and a little heavier, and I thought, you know, looks like a little male pattern ball kicking in or bub-bubba bub-bubba.

It's it's I to me when when you talk about that, I just think about the sort of global breakdown of the basic needs of civilization, including sanitation and rodent control and all the things that we see with the homeless pro- problem. And you know, there's things just breaking down in terms of just what humans have always need to be civilized society together.
