We'll Tell You When It's Time to Tap Tesla

A week ago today, in a strategy story aimed at helping you survive and thrive in today’s whipsaw markets, Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald told us to put Tesla Motors Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA) on our “watch lists” for a likely future purchase.

“BP, Tesla is a definite ‘shopping list’ stock,” Keith told me back then. “We’ve been nibbling at it here, and have played it successfully several times.

    The International Olympic Committee (IOC) generated an estimated $1 billion in sponsorship revenue in the four-year cycle ending with the 2012 London Olympics.

    Olympic sponsors, who are organized into one of four categories - worldwide and tiers one, two, and three - are picking up most of the advertising tab. In London 2012, "top Olympic sponsors (TOP)" paid more than $100 million in cash and "value-in-kind" goods and services for the right to participate, with the next tier paying $40 million each.
