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. I don’t give a rat’s [tail] that New Jersey won’t let the company sell its cars there. There are much bigger opportunities. Wait ’til you see what the company does with China.”

  • The Huge Economic Indicator Everyone Misses If you like bull markets, you better hope Janet Yellen is one of the most talkative Fed Chairs in history. It's not that she's going to say anything brilliant or insightful, just that she says something... anything... on a regular basis. You see, there's a direct relationship between how much she says and what's happening in the markets. What she says is almost completely irrelevant. I know people spend hours agonizing over the slightest nuances in each statement, but really none of those things matters. Unless you are a policy wonk, Fed statements are pretty consistently useless pontifications made every 6 to 8 weeks by the head of a supposedly independent financial body that is, in fact, a highly politicized entity. The Fed exercises little if any control over variables and targets that it changes at will and deems relevant at its sole discretion. Harsh? You bet. But not without merit... Full Story Read More...
