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. But it’s not yet at the point where I’m ready to jump all the way in. I think my rationale behind Tesla remains upbeat. I mean, you’ve got a real winning combination here – a disruptive sales model, a CEO who’s the most innovative guy on the planet, all the capital in the world that can be brought to bear.

  • Bypass These Pitfalls to (Major) Profits in Bioscience Anyone who's very familiar with the bioscience/pharmaceutical sector will tell you investing in experimental drugs can be an object lesson in volatility. As the drugs progress toward FDA approval or denial, the stock prices of the companies backing them can be in for the same volatile ride. A stock's surge or decline is often premised on general assumptions about the likelihood of FDA approval. But within specific bioscience sectors, that likelihood varies... widely. That's why I wanted to navigate through some types of drugs that generate a lot of enthusiasm but often crash before delivery. That way you can avoid some of the downside risk of this often lucrative market...
