In the past you were very confident in TSLA, Facebook, Amazon. Is your confidence in these investments as strong?

My confidence in both CFLT and QS is high (right now), not as high as it was with TSLA but high like it was with FB and AMZN.

QS will have an inflection point in 2023 (IF) when their solid state batteries go into early production, so there is plenty of time especially if there is panic in the market.
Their tech is not proven yet, so it is not a BRK kind of an investment.

Keep in mind, confidence is not point in time. It ebbs and flows with how the companies does which is a living thing.
You have to think about the business like you are running it.
Read, listen, analyze what the CEO is saying because you have hired him.

You feel the sadness, panic and euphoria like you feel with a startup. Analyze the business, not the stock price. You are a (part) owner.

All of this is a lot of work and can be exhausting if you don't enjoy it.

If this is not your cup of tea, dollar cost averaging in S&P500 is best. Sit back, relax and enjoy life.
