Tesla Stock

Tesla stock fell nearly 4% last week to 985, after losing more than 5% in the previous week. The handle has some depth, presumably shaking up some weak stockholders after TSLA’s strong stock run in late March. But the graph is deep and messy. A longer handle, and tighter action, would allow the major averages to keep catching up.

Tesla earnings are due Wednesday night. Investors can expect strong year-over-year growth, but they should probably look ahead. They will be looking for new clues about the Tesla Cybertruck, Semi, and other products. But they may not get it.

The Shanghai factory, which has been closed due to Covid restrictions since March 28, is said to reopen on Monday. Some employees have entered into a “closed loop” system and live on site. It is unclear when actual production will resume, but it will be very low initially. Returning to full production may take weeks. Suppliers and logistical challenges are also factors.

Tesla will suffer a significant drop in production in the second quarter, even as its Berlin and Austin plants slowly increase. It’s unclear if the Shanghai shutdown will or will have an impact on production at Tesla Berlin, which gets batteries and some other parts from China.

Misk News Twitter

Meanwhile, Tesla CEO Elon Musk made an unofficial offer of $43 billion, and $54.20 per share. Twitter (TWTR) are also potential headwinds. If the Twitter holder buys, he may sell another portion of the TSLA stock to pay for it.

On Friday, Twitter’s board of directors enacted a “toxic pill” clause to make it difficult for Musk to buy the company. The ruling states that if any individual or company buys more than 15% of TWTR shares, other shareholders can purchase additional shares at a discount. Musk currently owns 9.1% of TWTR shares.

While Musk’s bid is much higher than where TWTR traded before revealing his stake, it’s well below Twitter’s all-time high of 80.75 set in February 2021.

Musk continues to blow up Twitter’s board, management, and practices with tweets. He is considering bringing in partners to showcase him on Twitter, according to multiple reports. That could reduce the number of Tesla shares he’ll need to fund the purchase.

What are you doing now

The fork market rally, with some sectors rising and others falling, is a challenging trading environment. Investors need to focus on the leading sectors. But don’t get too concentrated in one particular area. One positive aspect of the travel stocks resurgence is that the sector is unrelated to the energy/commodity sector.

With commodity trading, you may look for pullbacks to moving averages as opportunities to initiate or add trades.

Depending on your trading style, you may want to take partial profits from stocks that are up 10% or 15%, to make sure you stay away from the trades and make gains.

Don’t be stubborn. If your stocks are not performing, especially those in the lagging sectors, cut your losses and get out. You might think the previous great growth leaders couldn’t fall any further, but as long as the stock is above zero, it can still drop 100%.

Keep building your watch lists. Buying opportunities can come and go quickly, while market conditions can change quickly. So you want to be ready.

Earnings season will start to pick up next week. Know when your holdings — or key competitors, supplies, or customers — are reporting results.
