Tesla Motors Inc
Ideas, Updates & Analysis
TSLA was one of the biggest gainers today mainly because Elon Musk Tesla announced the company is nearing its Model 3 weekly production goal of 5,000 vehicles per week.
Tesla vehicles are everywhere and are so cool, right?
The stock has been great for those that have the temperament for it.
The negative Earnings Per Share always stops me from buying and I really don't think about it much.
I think it is important to have investing rules or an investing checklist.
A consistent negative EPS disqualifies this stock for me.
18 of the past 25 quarters have had negative earnings.
There are so many other great companies with a positive EPS, low P/E Ration and dividend.
Check out this list of dividend stocks.
If you are tempted to buy, carefully consider how much much you are willing to risk.
