Tesla

(TSLA)

OUR RECOMMENDATION: TAKE PROFITS

03-AUGUST-2020

Tesla (TSLA) has been a rather popular stock and gone up 550% in 52 weeks. That's a little too much. Lessons learned in year 2000 suggests that when stocks go up way higher than normal, there may be a great risk. For a company growing revenue at 30% on average, and EPS at 121% last quarter, the run up is a little too much. TSLA was part of our Monthly Top 10 Performers portfolio last month, the Strategy now suggests taking profits. There are better opportunities out there for now. We do recommend purchasing the Top 10 Performers, our best performing monthly strategy - https://www.zinvestingacademy.com/product-page/top-10-performers-monthly
