Tesla Motors stock has been on a great run. Shares are up more than 190% from 2019 lows, leaving investors to wonder what’s next for the electric-vehicle pioneer.
Tesla reported a profit for the final quarter of 2019 — its second quarterly profit in a row. The stock doubled since Oct. 23, the day before it jumped more than 17% on an earnings-fuelled gap up. The main achievement is, according to Gulf Brokers, that TESLA sold 367,500 cars in total in 2019 — more than it sold in 2018 and 2017 together.
Tesla stock soared 12% late Wednesday after the electric car maker reported better-than-expected quarterly earnings. The stock was already up 39% this year. Revenue rose to $7.38 billion from $7.23 billion a year earlier. Analysts had expected revenue of $7.02 billion.
The Model 3 maker’s $7.38 billion in sales for the fourth quarter beat estimates and carried the company to its second consecutive quarterly profit.
Tesla stock debuted at less than $20 a share in 2010 and hit $200 in 2014. Now, after strong deliveries in the fourth quarter and the successful launch of a new factory in China, it’s above $500 — giving the company the highest valuation of any U.S. carmaker ever.
The stock surged to almost $650 after the close of regular trading. But in the last few days, the stock showed some weakness in the upside run. As we know there are a lot of traders shorting this stock from last few days because of RSI Overbought & the price close to the 3rd Resistance pivot on the daily. Therefore, there is still room for retracement before heading more higher.
