2020 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid vehicles in a row

Hybrid, Plug-in, and Fuel Cell Electric vehicles are available at Roberts Toyota in Columbia

Roberts Toyota, a Toyota dealership in Columbia, is currently promoting its selection of alternate fuel vehicles to drivers in the area. The dealership offers a variety of alternate fuel vehicles such as hybrids, plug-in vehicles and fuel cell electric vehicles. Drivers who are looking for a fuel-efficient or environmentally friendly vehicle are encouraged to visit Roberts Toyota to learn more.

Toyota hybrid vehicles that are available at Roberts Toyota may include the 2020 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, the 2020 Toyota Highlander Hybrid, the 2021 Toyota Corolla Hybrid, the 2020 Toyota Camry Hybrid and the 2020 Toyota Avalon Hybrid. The dealership also offers an inventory of used vehicles which may include hybrid models from multiple manufacturers. Customers who are seeking a specific hybrid model are encouraged to contact the dealership for more information.

Other notable fuel-efficient models at the dealership include the Toyota Prius lineup. The 2020 Toyota Prius is a hybrid vehicle with available AWD-e (All-Wheel-Drive-electric). The 2020 Toyota Prius Prime is a plug-in hybrid vehicle that can be charged with electricity or fueled up at the gas station, which gives it the most versatility in terms of fuel sources.

Toyota also has a fuel cell electric vehicle: the 2020 Toyota Mirai. This vehicle comes with up to three years of complimentary fuel, so drivers who are looking to save on fuel costs can save a lot with this model. Fuel cell electric vehicles are a relatively new type of alternate fuel vehicle that gives out zero emissions.

To see which alternate fuel vehicles are currently at the dealership, customers can view its inventories online at robertstoyota.com. An online inventory is available for new and used models with the new vehicle inventory being split up by model.

Tesla Analysts — Most Earned Less Than Nothing (Q3 Analyst Report Cards)

This is the third edition of our Tesla analyst report cards based on where their TSLA price targets and sell/hold/buy advice would lead you (based on information from tools like tipranks, marketbeat and other research).

It is actually a bit surprising, but the right words by these analysts can sometimes make the stock move quite significantly when in reality a lot of these analysts don’t appear to understand Tesla at all. Luckily, now that Tesla mostly answers questions from retail and institutional investors via say.com on its earnings calls, these analysts’ influence is diminished and people listening to (or watching) the Tesla earnings calls are saved from some of the most “boneheaded questions.”

This quarter, the report includes 26 analysts that have either updated their TSLA price target since the start of Q3 or are likely to appear on the call despite the fact that they haven’t updated their price target or don’t set price targets at all. The analyst cards are sorted from most bearish to most bullish, and this quarter there is at least one big surprise, Toni Sacconaghi from Bernstein.

Daniel Galves is a strange case. He is usually fairly bullish about Tesla, but he hasn’t updated his price target (to our knowledge) since Q2 2019, and thus appears to be bearish. Surely, his expectations for the stock price have shifted, but we don’t have any insight into that. He is on this list because he keeps appearing on the earnings calls despite not publishing price target updates.

Toni Sacconaghi is the biggest shock and surprise of the Tesla analyst world this quarter. Historically, this analyst has been known to be quite bullish on Tesla, and by ratings on tipranks, he is actually very well liked and followed. What appeared to be a fluke in the beginning of Q3 when he might simply not have had time to update the price target in response to the stock market has now turned unto a distinct pattern that also reflects the commentary.

In 2020 we would have thought that Tesla bears were a dying breed, mostly converting into bulls. So, to see his recent comments (see graphic above) is a bit puzzling. To call Battery Day “vaporware-ish” shows, in my opinion, a pretty big misunderstanding of what is going on with Tesla. The simplest explanation is that Toni all this time has had his own napkin math with a predetermined valuation that Tesla didn’t exceed in previous years but now does. In September, he was interviewed on CNBC, and even the news outlet that used to publish tons of FUD back in 2018 was more positive about Tesla than Toni was.

Dan Levy is certainly one of the more unusual bear-turns-bull analysts. Technically speaking, he isn’t a bull, and sentimentally speaking, I’m not quite ready to call him a bull either. In the past, his commentary on the company was extremely negative, to the point where it was practically FUD. It appeared that he did not understand the market, the company, or the technology, and I did not find his questions on the earnings calls useful. However, at some point in 2020, his commentary became a lot more positive and the questions he was asking on the call were no longer as absurd either. He has definitely pulled himself up by his bootstraps — just a few quarters ago he was literally the only TSLA analyst to have a negative general success rate and the absolute worst TSLA return. Now, that success rate is positive and his negative TSLA return is still in the triple digits but no longer as outrageously so.

For those who have forgotten, Goldman Sachs used to be very big TSLA bears, especially with its commentary. That is until the firm replaced the previous analyst with Mark Delaney. This analyst started off as a bull, seemed to have become a bear, and is now back to being a bull.

In any case, being on the job for just a few quarters is not enough time to judge his prospects as a TSLA analyst. One thing is for sure, though — his success rate and TSLA return scores are way better than that of his predecessor.

Deutsche Bank is a strange case. The name pops up more than once on the Tesla 10K SEC filing as a lender. This analyst, who has appeared on the earnings calls numerous times, is usually positive, but not excessively so. Even though the price targets have not been excessively bullish or bearish over the years, the firm’s success rate and slightly negative TSLA return makes it a strange case.

Last quarter, Alexander Potter had the highest TSLA price target. This time, he is in second place.

Pierre Ferragu this quarter has outbid even Alexander Potter and has the absolute highest TSLA price target. For a long time, he was mocked for having a TSLA price target twice as high as the stock price, but he was eventually proven right — very right.

You may have guessed or may simply recall that Gene Munster has a tendency to appear on these calls, and is usually quite bullish about the company. But we don’t have data for him.

Finally, my reasons for including Maynard Um from Macquarie Research actually have nothing to do with his price target. Rather, it has to do with the TSLA return. Even though this analyst probably stopped coverage of TESLA in Q3 2019, the fact that he recommended people buy when TSLA was at a lower price and just hold after that ended up giving him the best result. If there is a single conclusion to draw from it all, perhaps it is to just buy low and hold since no one can predict TSLA, especially not the analysts and their blunt financial instruments. Though, that is not actual investment advice, and we don’t provide investment advice of any sort. We’re not stock market analysts.

Tesla has announced that its earnings call for shareholders will take place on October 21, today, at 2:30pm PDT. Now that Tesla no longer has a PR team, this earnings call could bring to light a lot of fascinating new details about Battery Day as well as its implications, since it’s the first time since the event that the company will be answering questions.

As always, CleanTechnica will be there to stream it live with all the bells and whistles you have come to expect from our previous livestreams, and maybe even some new ones. Here is the link to our livestream, and it’s also embedded below. Just make sure to click that “Set reminder” button, and if you haven’t already subscribed to our channel, I recommend it.

We will also be publishing an article shortly with all of the analysts that might show up on the call, so keep an eye out for that. I think it’s a critical report for anyone following the stock, and no one else publishes anything comparable. Full disclosure: I own shares of Tesla [TSLA].

Salinas Propane Company Releases the Report ‘Propane Water Heaters And…

propane Salinas

Propane water heaters are one-third less expensive to operate.

Propane hot water heaters can produce more hot water than a similar sized electric appliance.

Wildhorse Propane, the Salinas propane supplier, recently released the report, “Propane Water Heaters and the Family Budget.” A propane water heater can save between $3,000 and $4,000 over the average 10-year lifespan when compared to an electric water heater.

The benefits of propane water heaters include:

  • Lower operating costs averaging one-third less to operate than the electric counterpart.
  • Smaller storage space requirements; a smaller footprint means more space for other uses.
  • More accurate temperature adjustment means getting just the right temperature.
  • Provide hot water when the power is out.

Propane hot water heaters can produce more hot water than a similar sized electric appliance. A smaller sized propane heater can do the same job as a larger electric hot water heater. This means no more long waiting times between showers or scheduling laundry and running the dishwasher around family shower times.

Propane water heaters have been around for decades and with today’s technologies, they work better than ever, and homeowners now have a choice between a storage tank hot water heater and a tankless model.

Benefits of storage tank propane water heaters

  • The compact design uses less space than electric water heaters.
  • A 40-gallon propane unit delivers the same amount of hot water as a 50-gallon electric unit.
  • Energy Star propane units save about 13-16 percent in annual energy costs compared with electric heaters.
  • Propane storage tank water heaters produce 46-percent fewer greenhouse emissions than electric models.

Benefits of tankless water heaters

  • Tankless water heaters deliver hot water as needed because water is heated when it travels to a tap for use. “Heating on demand” saves approximately $150 a year over electric models.
  • An Energy Star certified tankless propane could save even more.
  • The compact size saves between 9 and 16 square feet of floor space.
  • Tankless propane water heaters produce up to 60-percent fewer greenhouse emissions than electric models.

Which is best?

Tankless water heaters cost more than their storage tank water heaters and this is important to consider when deciding. The more hot water a family uses, the more savings will be realized. A retired couple generally uses less hot water and less household energy than a family of four, so the extra cost for a tankless water heater may not be offset by lower energy costs.

A family of four uses an average of 63 gallons of hot water per day, at a cost of over $450 per year using an electric water heater.

Wildhorse Propane, servicing Salinas and all of Monterey County, plus San Luis Obispo County, also sells propane appliances and can answer questions about choosing a propane hot water heater.

The friendly and professional staff at Wildhorse can fill all of your propane needs for appliances, propane service, tanks, and more. The family-owned company combines fair prices, good service and timely delivery. Wildhorse propane service includes the convenience of regular delivery route truck drivers. Wildhorse has been a leading supplier of propane gas and propane tanks since 1980.
