Should I start buying Tesla stock? What will I get in the near future?

Tesla has been one of the wonder stories linked to high valuations despite a mismatch in delivery of its end-product and profits. The valuation is based more on the expectation of achieving a number one monopolistic position in the race for sustainable transportation and storage.

Tesla Stock Performance in the Past Year

The Tesla Stock has seen bouts of corrections owing to

  1. Promoter (Elon Musk’s) tweets
  2. General Market Correction
  3. Fall in the output owing to supply chain & semiconductor disruption
  4. Pursuit of Twitter Acquisition by the promoter leading to questions about stock dilution and returns

Owing to these reasons, we are saying statements like these from the Investment Banks

Also, peers in the category like Chinese Major – NIO are meeting their delivery deadlines and are scaling but are susceptible to US-China Trade War, and sanctions(if any) are applied to Chinese entities listed in the US.

The stock out of sheer speculation has been hammered throughout the past year.

The situation has not been rosy for other US electric & hydrogen based auto manufacturers like Rivian(backed by Amazon) and Nikola

Considering all this, it is best to follow the approach stated below

  1. Wait for the Federal Reserve’s next round of rate hikes
  2. Wait a quarter for prices in Tesla to correct by 7–10%
  3. Wait for the semiconductor supply chain to be smoothened out

Once these conditions are met, try to buy into the stock in a staggered manner. Do not commit a huge sum in one go. This should assure upside gains. Also, do your personal due diligence from your end to see if the valuation and money commitment match your long-term goals.

Hope this helps
