Maybe some correlation, but would make a stronger attempt at a point if you overlaid it with some relevant index fund to show that it's not just following larger market trends.

But even the sp500 kind of shows it as exaggerating the market as a whole, all except the last bit there where it really tanks

What do you mean Tesla is down 80% more than the ndx this year.

So in the sense of both down then yes.

That’s clearly false. Since musk took over Twitter Tesla is down like 20% and the market is up

The last couple months are a pretty clear, and pretty dire, deviation from the market.

S&P is down 15% on the year. NDX is down 27%. TSLA is down 50%.

It looks like its following market trend for all changes except those in recent weeks.


HeartbrokenFitNerd t1_j031h1z wrote

Agreed. Came here to say same thing - OP should decorrelate it with respect to major indices first. Given the massive drop over the course of this year and based on what I'm seeing here, I'm guessing the result will be either underwhelming or maybe even demonstrate general growth


DividedState t1_j05uhaj wrote

The question would be how much of Tesla makes that index, too.


weluckyfew t1_j02nt1c wrote

I'm very curious to see their sales figures for the past few months - I have to think that owning a Tesla is rapidly becoming far less chic (not to mention all the new EVs on the horizon from everyone else)


gza_liquidswords t1_j058eue wrote

The more important point is that Tesla is not valued as an electric car company. This valuation might be $60-120B depending at most. Tesla's inflated valuation (was up to $1.2 trillion at one point!) is as a "tech" company, and that genius Elon will transform the world with his latest brilliant idea to make humanoid vacuum cleaners or whatever.


between_two_cities t1_j06kmfr wrote

To be fair, turning the existing Tesla car-fleet into autonomous taxis that their owners can rent (with Tesla getting a cut) would be pretty revolutionary.

Sadly, seems like this is far from reality.


gza_liquidswords t1_j06m3j0 wrote

I think not only if is far from reality, but it also never made sense why Tesla and Tesla alone would be able to pull this off. The answer is the myth of Elon the genius, who would somehow single handily pull off what many companies are trying to accomplish. In any case I think it slowly starting to "sink" in to most people that Elon is not a genius


between_two_cities t1_j06mer7 wrote

Because it is a tech company. They offer tech company salaries to AI researchers. Compared with that, VW offered me something like 45k USD per year in my Central European country.

This service is not even of VW's radar.

There is only Tesla and Waymo who are even remotely near this goal.

Probably just me but everyone time I see someone driving a Tesla I roll my eyes. It’s the ultimate signal of being a bit of a muppet. Similar to wearing Balenciaga clothes.

They are still dominant but losing market share because of all the new competition. In China, they used to be the no 1 EV seller but they are now no 2 and have to offer discounts to get their cars out the door. Not a good sign.

In US, Tesla is still very dominant and their 2 closest competitors, Ford and Hyundai far behind.

Thialase t1_j04vepc wrote

sure perhaps now, but with time I don't think that'll be the case. Won't pretend like I know everything. But from the way I see things, in the U.S it's mostly left leaning people who want EV's badly. I'm sure rich right-wing people would buy them too, but right-wing people don't really buy into the whole EV / climate friendly aspect of things.

What I'm trying to say is, with the way musk has been behaving "lately", I think it's going to put off a lot of the people who'd normally want a tesla and make them buy something else, as they don't want to support musk. That, along with other companies making nice EVs are going to eat into their market share.

But hey I could be wrong and be talking out of my ass. Just saying what I think is going to happen.

svaerde t1_j04b1ix wrote

The EV market is projected to grow from 800k/yr in 2022 to 4.8 million EVs in 2030 (US only). Even if the market share halves that’s still 3x 2022 sales. At the moment there is a huge supply shortage for EVs. Not sure how it is in the US but 12-18 months is considered a normal delivery time for a KIA/VW/Mercedes EVs in Europe. The only company able to deliver is Tesla with 2-6 month delivery times. That is due to scale, supply chain efficiency and vertical integration. Then you also need to consider that other manufacturers are selling at cost/loss whilst Tesla has a 30% margin on its cars which is huge in the auto industry.

You have to get off reddit a bit more.


weluckyfew t1_j03jhql wrote

Spare me your ignorant patronizing - Musk wanted to make Tesla synonymous with himself, and now its fortunes are tied to his. If you don't think a lot of public opinion has soured on him you're not paying attention. His flailing with Twitter has become a national joke, and his actions (reinstating Trump, firing half the staff, tone-deaf statements) have taken away a lot of his luster.


sleeknub t1_j049lxd wrote

Did you even read the article before referencing it?? That is the weakest article I’ve ever seen. I disagree with Musk on shit but saying that he promotes Qanon because he quoted the matrix is terrible journalism. To be fair, it’s par for the course for Reddit


weluckyfew t1_j03zxxx wrote

It's been a Qanon phrase for years ( here's 2018, and 2017 and white rabbit themed Qanon merch )- as Musk would know - and certainly the Qanon crowd thinks it was a wink to them. Add that to Musk's "Twittergate" conspiracy nonsense, a penchant for screaming "pedophile!" at his opponents, reinstating the accounts of Qanon folks, the Fauci conspiracy nonsense...

nova9001 t1_j05asmt wrote

I like to bash him but there's no way Tesla or SpaceX would have been what they are today without him.

However, it doesn't mean he can't make mistakes and Twitter is just the prime example of it.


NrdNabSen t1_j05m0at wrote

Can't say this with certainty. But Tesla and SpaceX could sell the vision of being the first successful electric car company and commercial space venture, respectively, to employees. People who cared about those ideas would more likely tolerate a shitty CEO because they believed in the mission of the company. Not sure Twitter has that same greater purpose to overcome his fuckwittery. Especially since his fuckwittery often runs counter to what Twitter was before he took over.


supified t1_j05bd0c wrote

Perhaps he has some talent somewhere that helped those companies be successful (though we can't discount engineers and scientists working there).

And perhaps the success and people calling him a genius went to his head and he believed it that he could do no wrong, so he started making increasingly dumb moves and failing harder and harder, but because he's been successful he's incapable of seeing his own failures and so he just gets more and more out of control.

In the end he's remembered more for his failings than his successes.

At least that's the trajectory I see.


Spillz-2011 t1_j05j7dp wrote

What does “where they are mean” in this context?


anonkitty2 t1_j05v3s8 wrote

Without Tesla, the electric car might still be all but nonexistent; the oil companies could have stifled them indefinitely. Without SpaceX, America would not currently have a space program that includes manned missions it launches. His products are still flawed, but Musk and cos. got them off the drawing boards and helped show there was a market for them.


Spillz-2011 t1_j075u20 wrote

Sure but Tesla and using lithium ion batteries for evs wasn’t his idea so musk wasn’t in any way necessary for that to happen


anonkitty2 t1_j08tesz wrote

No. Musk wasn't necessary. But he was helpful. He was a little like Harold Hill in "The Music Man."


Spillz-2011 t1_j08vgnn wrote

Was he though? they already had the idea, the contacts, the prototype, the lithium battery expertise. They brought him in to help with funding and he decided he would put in his money and take over the company and force them out. He complained that they set up the production line for the 3 wrong and almost caused bankruptcy, but that was after he forced them out. He set up a horrible process then wants everyone to congratulate him for fixing the mess he created.


anonkitty2 t1_j0avur5 wrote

Oh. There wasn't much publicity for Tesla, to my knowledge, before Musk came. Musk really is like Harold Hill. Hill successfully created a market for brass bands but would include as a critical part non-working music lessons, and then jump ship just before it could be proven they didn't work. When Tesla reached public awareness, expectations for electric cars were so low that Teslas still met them. (I have a relation who still believes electric cars can't go farther than 40 miles a charge, like the ones GM leased and lost in the early 2000s.)

I've been following Tesla since all they had was the Roadster and before Musk existed with Telsa. I always dreamed of buying one for myself, and I'm getting to the point where I might be able to afford an EV in the next 2 - 4 years. However, because of Musk, I will never buy a Tesla. There are plenty of other companies that will have EVs by the time I buy one.

I would say its more due to general recession fears, inflation, and energy prices increasing so much that its becoming too costly to make electric car batteries. Also Tesla is correcting after the euphoria of the Covid boom.

For what is worth Musk has already made twitter profitable, it seems he is doing good work there.

Of course, I did my research. Plus my son gets a 15% discount on stocks since he works there. Tesla cars run on a 15% margin. All other EV car makers run at 7% or less. Tesla stock was overpriced, he even said so. The stock is currently driven down by his purchase of Twitter. This helps artificially drive the stock down.


gza_liquidswords t1_j058s44 wrote

Even at $140 this puts Tesla valuation over $400 Billion. Tesla is worth at most $60-120Billion as an electric car company.


Additional-Local8721 t1_j06l012 wrote

So your son has an ESOP I'm assuming? A company can't legally sell shares of stock at a discount publicly. Your son would be the owner of the shares, not you. Either way, best of luck to you. If you're looking for other investments, check out the MJ index.
