Tesla stock soared to a new high Monday after the electric vehicle maker notched another delivery record during the fourth quarter.
Tesla (TSLA) fell just short of its stated goal of 500,000 deliveries in 2020, but shares 3.4% to 729.77 on the stock market today, hitting a record high intraday. The company said on Saturday it delivered 189,750 EVs in the quarter, vs. 174,000 expected by analysts, for a total of 499,550 in 2020. Final delivery numbers could vary up to 0.5% or more by the time Tesla reports quarterly results later this month, the company said.
Tesla reports its deliveries in model groups. For the fourth quarter, Model Y and Model 3 cars totaled 161.650, while Model S and Model X totaled 18,920.
Tesla stock analysts expect EV demand to pick up globally in 2021. In China, EV sales are seen growing by 40% to 1.8 million units in 2021 and reaching 6 million units in 2025.
Expect EV sales to ramp up from about 3% of total auto sales today to 10% by 2025. He says demand will “disproportionately benefit the clear EV category leader Tesla over the next few years especially in the key China region, which we think could represent 40% of its EV deliveries by 2022 given the current brisk pace of sales.”
The Tesla stock analyst added that Chinese EV makers BYD Co. (BYDDF), Nio, Xpeng and Li Auto also are “firing on all cylinders.”

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.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 87.7343. This is an overbought reading. However, a signal is not generated until the Oscillator crosses below 80 The last signal was a sell 7 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 71.86. This is where it usually tops. The RSI usually forms tops and bottoms before the underlying security. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a sell 8 period(s) ago.
The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a buy 0 period(s) ago.
