Tesla Motors

Tesla
Motors is the “it” stock right now in the automotive industry. Tesla
was a pioneer in offering cars that run 100% on electricity rather than
gasoline, and it has also diversified into solar energy, purchasing the
company SolarCity. Its stock price has risen high enough in recent years
that it has surpassed automobile giant General Motors in market
valuation.

However, not all analysts believe Tesla is a good investment at its
current price. It sells less than a 100,000 cars per year, compared with
General Motors which sells around 10 million cars a year. Unlike
General Motors, Tesla has yet to earn a profit.

Here are some articles both pro and con about whether you should
invest in Tesla. Take a look at these articles and also try to find some
more recent articles on Tesla’s stock:

Based on what you’ve read, do you think Tesla is worth its high
valuation, or is it simply priced too high because it is considered new
and trendy? Would you personally invest in Tesla, or would you prefer to
invest in one of the more established auto companies such as GM or
Ford?

Good Morning Class,

I personally believe that Tesla is priced so high because it is new
and trendy. They haven’t made any money yet and don’t sell stock
nearly like sow of the other automobile companies do. They are much
smaller and would be much easier to take out financially than bigger
companies like General Motors would. I personally would not invest in
Tesla at this point in time. I would more than likely invest in General
Motors. General Motors sells a line of automobiles that are more
affordable as well as higher priced automobiles and therefore expands to
a bigger market and has the potential for more sales because of this.
They are also well established and have turned a profit, none of which
Tesla has done thus far. If Tesla were to lose popularity in the market
there is a large chance that they could bankrupt and go under.

While
Lefton brings up good points regarding Tesla’s potential in the future,
including its Model 3 production and solar technology (Lefton, 2017).
Tesla still has significant hurdles to overcome, including turning a
profit, as well as creating cars at a volume anywhere near where Ford or
GM are making them. Furthermore, recent developments with Elon Must,
Tesla’s CEO are not good. Not company likes it when your CEO is charged
with securities fraud by the SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission,
2018). This move may have been an attempt be Elon to pump up the stock
price, by getting investors excited about a possible stock buyback from
the company.

When we look at the company’s P/E ratio other fundamentals, we find
that it is very overvalued for the price of the stock (Yahoo! Finance,
2018). Negative earnings per share and PE ratio, which is much worse
that its competitors. While, the company does have many assets, in the
form of human capital, synergistic partnership, and excitement about its
products, as well as a compelling vision, I think the company may have
tried to grow too much, too quickly, and as such is too risky of a buy
at the current price, and I would find better value with one of Tesla’s
competitors.
