Tesla stock
 

 
So I have been reading the "Essays of Warren Buffet" the past month or so and they continue to talk about intrinsic value for companies and deciding to invest based on that. When I go look at a company like Tesla none of the numbers make sense for why the stock price is so high especially to have doubled in the past 6 months. Is it based more on hype and the potential? If that is the case I can imagine it would make it extremely risky as well because one bad report can make it swing dramatically.

Investing in a single company is risky regardless of who they are.

definitely I agree with that just trying to get thoughts/opinions on why they are doing so well

Tesla is a weird anomaly

Very volatile and the most shorted stock of all time but it still goes up

Short term cap gains can't blame you for taking the win and moving on though

That is what I am starting to notice, I do expect the stock to fall and plan on getting in when it does. Definitely a long term hold because I believe in what they want to do but they aren't really making any money.

This is exactly what I was going to say. This stock gets shorted all the damn time.

Warren Buffet is a famous value investor, he doesn't touch companies like Tesla. There are 2 different types of stocks, value and growth. Tesla is a growth stock. Coca Cola (Buffet's favorite company) is a value company. Those are relatively safe and generally pay dividends, and can be undervalued relative to the rest of the markets. But they don't have explosive growth because there's no innovation with them.

Companies like Tesla, Amazon, Netflix, etc are growth companies. When you invest in them you're investing in the future and their potential, what they could be in 5-10 years from now. Fundamentally they make no sense to own when comparing them to value stocks because the growth companies are still growing.

But the goal is the future. Tesla sold 367k cars last year, and they finally reported a profit last quarter. Compare that to GM for example who sold almost 3M cars last year. Now imagine if Tesla is the future and one day they'll be selling millions of cars instead of hundreds of thousands...

Tesla is in more than just cars. They are in the solar biz as well. I would get an ETF with them in it. But that single stock. Sheesh
