Was Elon Musk right when he said- Tesla stock price is too high?

500% growth in just 8 months

  • Tesla has become a $600 bn company as of December 2020
  • On Tuesday (17th Nov) alone the stock rose by 12% that means $51 bn
  • Current Market capitalization of Tesla = Pepsi + Coca Cola + General Motors. Remember these companies are industry leaders with solid fundamentals

A brief comparison of business fundamentals

TESLA sold 360,000 cars whereas GM sold 7.7Mn cars in 2019

EBITDA of GM = $8.3 bn ,
Tesla= $3.5 bn

Free Cash Flow of Tesla = $800Mn
Walmart= $11.5 bn

So clearly fundamentals are not the reason for the Tesla Stock Price rise. Suddenly the world has not decided to become all ELECTRIC also.

Then What is Happening?

After four straight quarters of profitability, Tesla is finally eligible to be included in the S&P 500.

Tesla will officially join the benchmark S&P 500 on December 21.
