Tesla News

With its market cap hovering at $540 billion and its stock trading at ten times what it was worth a year ago, it’s easy to buy into the idea that Tesla is the world’s most valuable automaker. However, founder and boss Elon Musk isn’t blinded by his company’s overblown paper value and wants his executives to know that they shouldn’t be, either.

“At a time like this, when our stock is reaching new heights, it may seem as though spending carefully is not as important. This is definitely not true!” Musk told employees Tuesday in an internal email titled “Costs are extremely important!”

Musk noted that Tesla’s actual profitability is very low, registering at only 1 percent in 2019. “Investors are giving us a lot of credit for future profitability,” he wrote. “But if, at any point, they conclude that’s not going to happen, our stock will immediately get crushed like a soufflé under a sledgehammer!”

It’s not the first time Musk has sounded the alarm on Tesla’s share price. In May, just after Tesla stock hit a three-month peak on strong Q2 financial results, the CEO tweeted, seemingly out of the blue, that he thought Tesla’s stock price was too high.

The only way to prevent an ugly stock collapse is selling more cars while keeping costs as low as possible.

“This is a tough Game of Pennies,” Musk wrote in Tuesday’s email, “requiring thousands of good ideas to improve part cost, a factory process, or simplify the design while increasing quality and capabilities. A great idea would be one that saves $5, but the vast majority are $0.50 here or $0.20 there.”

Candlesticks

During the past 10 bars, there have been 7 white candles and 3 black candles for a net of 4 white candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 25 white candles and 25 black candles.

A falling window occurred (where the bottom of the previous shadow is above the top of the current shadow). This usually implies a continuation of a bearish trend. There have been 5 falling windows in the last 50 candles–this makes the current falling window even more bearish. The two candles preceding the falling window were black, which makes this pattern even more bearish.

Momentum Indicators

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.

Stochastic Oscillator

One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 59.7876. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a sell 1 period(s) ago.

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 69.37. This is not a topping or bottoming area. However, the RSI just crossed below 70 from a topping formation. This is a bearish sign. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a sell 0 period(s) ago.
