Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) shares have taken a wrong turn
Tesla shares have taken a wrong turn.
The stock has tumbled more than 17 percent this year with losses accelerating last week following a mediocre reception to its Model Y unveiling. It is now 29 percent off its record high set in September 2017.
One technical analyst says the stock charts point to more hardship ahead for the electric vehicle maker.
“You’ve been stuck in a trading range for about 2½ years – $245 on the lower end, $390 on the upper end. Back in December, you lost power at $390. You’ve been backing and filling since,” Craig Johnson, chief market technician at Piper Jaffray, said Friday on CNBC’s “Trading Nation. ”
Tesla also trades at an extreme premium compared with its peers, says Bapis.
“They’re trading at per units sold to market cap of $120,000. Daimler and BMW trade at $30,000. So it’s four times any other market cap per units sold out there,” he said.
Tesla is the second-worst performer on the Nasdaq 100 this year. It is down 51 percent over the past 12 months.
