Should I buy Tesla shares after the US tech sell-off?

Paul Summers has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK owns shares of and has recommended Tesla. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Of course, we need to keep things in perspective. While the speed of Tesla’s share price capitulation has been frightening, anyone who purchased a slice of the company one year ago would still be looking at a gain of around 350%! In fact, Tesla shares have only fallen back to the price they were changing hands at around Christmas. Why might Tesla continue falling?Whether the rout of Tesla shares is completely over is, of course, impossible to say for sure. Even so, it’s not hard to come up with reasons as to why things could get worse before they get better.First, there’s the valuation. At roughly $650bn, Tesla’s market capitalisation is still seriously overvalued based on any traditional metric. After all, it’s only just made its first full-year profit. Moreover, Tesla produces and sells far fewer cars compared to more traditional manufacturers that have lower valuations. Hype will only carry a share price so far. Eventually, it needs to be justified by the numbers.A second reason why the share may continue falling relates to the increasingly bizarre decisions of CEO Elon Musk. The recent purchase of $1.5bn of Bitcoin is a prime example. Whether Musk’s cryptocurrency transaction proves to be inspired or reckless further down the line is not really the point. If I owned shares in a car company, I would rather it concentrated on making said cars rather than buying highly volatile assets.On the other hand…Having said all this, there’s a chance that the worst may be over for owners of Tesla shares.For one, it’s increasingly clear that the widespread adoption of electric cars is now just a matter of time. In fact, it could happen a lot faster than first thought if potential buyers can be persuaded that ‘range anxiety’ is no longer an issue. Tesla will likely remain one of the most established players in this industry. This being the case, we may simply be seeing a temporary correction in the share price.Another reason Tesla’s capitulation may prove short-lived is that excitable traders could simply ‘buy the dip’ and the cycle could continue.A safer playRegardless of whether it’s over or not, the recent fall in Tesla’s share price was overdue, necessary and healthy, in my opinion. No stock or market can continue rising without interruption forever.  Given the still-incredibly-high valuation, I won’t buy shares in Tesla directly today. Instead, I’ll simply continue getting exposure via a selection of actively-managed and passive funds. One example of the former that I own would be FTSE 100 member Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust. An example of the latter that also has a place in my portfolio is the Legal & General UCITS ETF Battery Value Chain.  Last week will likely go down as one that owners of Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) shares will want to forget. Should I regard the recent sell-off in US tech titans as a great opportunity to buy or does the electric car maker have further to fall? Let’s start by surveying the damage done.How bad is the damage?It’s certainly not pretty. Back in January, Tesla’s share price was close to breaching the $900 mark. Yesterday, it started trading at $697. A drop of over 25% is something we’d expect during a market crash like we experienced in March 2020, not in a recovery. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential… Should I buy Tesla shares after the US tech sell-off?

Dion Berryman scores with incredible finish in the corner against Toulouse

first_imgMonday Oct 14, 2013 Dion Berryman scores with incredible finish in the corner against Toulouse Toulouse got their Heineken Cup campaign off to a solid start with a convincing 38-5 bonus point victory over Zebre at the Stade Ernest Wallon on Friday night. They scored six tries but the most memorable finish of the night went to Zebre’s Dion Berryman. The French giants put the game out of reach in the first half despite Berryman’s stunning superman effort early in the second. Three tries in nine minutes got them underway as Zebre looked like they would continue to struggle in Europe, continuing with their poor form from the Pro12.Yoann Huget finished a stunning effort for the home side after Maxime Medard and Clement Poitrenaud combined to put him away. It was a contender for try of the match, and perhaps the round, but Berryman then produced a piece of magic to get Zebre’s only try of the night.From turnover ball he stepped Medard then shot for the corner and somehow managed to float through the air long enough to get the ball down, while the rest of his body was up and out of play.We’ve seen this type of thing in the NRL in Australia before, but this was without a doubt one of the tries of a thoroughly enjoyable opening Heineken Cup weekend.Yannick Nyanga scored for Toulouse later in the game, but Zebre did well to restrict the hosts from really running away with things.

ICSTIS is seeking feedback on its proposals to regulate 0871 numbers when it assumes responsibility for their regulation in early 2008 from Ofcom.Charities use 0871 numbers in a variety of ways because they can generate income in the form of a share in the telecom providers’ income from the line.Proposals include the need for clear and prominent price warnings in all advertisements, as well as new procedures for dealing with refunds when callers feel that they have been kept on hold unnecessarily by call centres. Advertisementcenter_img Paul Whiteing, ICSTIS’ Director of Policy & Innovation, said: “We are consulting with the wider industry as a matter of principle so that public feedback can be used to formulate and shape regulatory policy.“To date, the responses have been of a very high quality but low in number. We are a consultative organisation and value the insightful contributions of the premium rate sector. I would urge all interested parties to respond to the consultations and contribute to shaping a positive future for this key industry and our new organisation, PhonePayPlus, which will launch in late autumn. Howard Lake | 19 June 2007 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Seattle youth denounce racist attacks

first_imgA huge Black Lives Matter march of around 2,000 people took place in Seattle on the evening of March 4. The youthful, multinational crowd overflowed the plaza at Seattle Community College.Some in the march carried signs saying “Justice for Ben Keita,” an 18-year-old Black Muslim student in Lake Stevens, Wash. His body was found hanging from a tree in the woods on Jan. 9. The medical examiner and the cops ruled it a suicide, but his parents are skeptical since Keita was upbeat and ambitious about going to college.The police investigation into Keita’s death has been very slow, and the medical examiner has now called the cause of his death to be undetermined. The state Council on American-Islamic Relations has called for a federal investigation into this apparent lynching, especially due to the rise of hate crimes permitted and enabled by the regime of U.S. President Donald Trump.The demonstration marched to the site of a youth jail, where a long street meeting was held. Black Lives Matter leaders denounced the $210 million plan to expand and remodel the jail, including the expansion of a massive new youth courthouse. The complex, which is right in the Black community, jails a disproportionately high percentage of people of color.Only days before, forces opposed to the youth jail were double-crossed by the liberal Seattle city administration. The city had promised opponents of the jail the right to appeal the construction permit, but that right was turned down in the permit hearing.The protesters also marched to the Umoja Peace Center in Central District, a Black community. Omari Tahir-Garrett, a longtime activist and resident of the Peace Center, had recently been jailed for a week and evicted from the property, where he has lived for many years.Tahir-Garrett spoke to the marchers from his front porch about the violence of his arrest and eviction, which was done illegally in the interests of new investors in the property. The Peace Center, which houses the homeless, has attracted interest as a center of opposition to the gentrification of the community over many years.The demonstration then marched one block further to Uncle Ike’s, a high-end, high volume, white-owned marijuana shop. Demonstration leaders pointed out that Uncle Ike’s flaunts its ability to peddle marijuana as the “face of capitalism” while huge numbers of Black people remain in prison for selling marijuana nearby before the drug was legalized.The demonstration remained in front of Uncle Ike’s until all the customers had left and the parking lot was empty.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Purple Corn Showing Up in Eastern Indiana

first_imgIn addition to the purple corn, Welch says some hail damage and seedling blight have been reported in some fields.  Listen to the complete report from Justin Welch on the Pioneer Agronomy page.[audio:https://www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2012/05/purple-corn-wrap.mp3|titles=Purple Corn Showing Up in Eastern Indiana] Corn growers in East Central Indiana are seeing something strange in their fields: purple corn.  Pioneer agronomist Justin Welch says, for the most part, the crops in East Central Indiana are in good condition, “We are about 90% planted and the crops are off to a good start.” But his phone was ringing a lot last week with frantic calls about purple corn, “Purple corn is a very interesting development. The crop has to be just in the right growth stage, 2 to 4 inch tall corn.” He explained to HAT that, when you get two consecutive nights of temperatures that drop to 40 degrees or below, the sugars in the plant come to the surface and give the plant a purple color. He says, though the sight of your corn crop turning purple is enough to un-nerve most producers, it is a cosmetic problem only and will not impact yield, “It does not affect the height or the growth stage or any other aspect of the plant except the color.  In the end, it has no impact of yield.”  He added the plant will soon start growing out of the phase and new growth will be a normal green color. He said the phenomenon does tend to be more prevalent in certain hybrids.
