Stock Picks Is the Tesla stock worth owning for the long-term? Published 1 year ago on July 26, 2017 By Rakesh Upadhyay The Money Makers Club now has 6 of 15 available seats. Learn more here! Tesla’s stock has seen huge volatility in 2017. The stock rose from about $215 at the start of the year to hit a high of $386.99 on June 23 – an increase of 80%. Thereafter, it fell more than 21% within a matter of 15 days. Tesla is a difficult stock to analyze as the usual valuation metrics don’t apply to it. Key observations Tesla is changing the way we drive but it will take time for the change to happen Tesla’s cars are popular in their segment Model 3 is the key for the company’s future The company is diversifying beyond manufacturing cars Electric vehicle competition is heating up At the current valuation, Tesla can’t afford any errors Due to high risk and uncertainty, it is better to avoid this stock as a long-term bet Out of the 16 analysts who offer a 12-month target price for Tesla Inc, the highest is $464, while the lowest is $155 and the median is $309.5. It has seven outperform/buy recommendations and seven underperform/sell recommendations. Nine analysts rate the stock as a hold. That shows the extent of division among the analysts. But why is there such a large disparity in analysts’ expectations? Tesla is a disruptive technology Tesla is not like any other automobile company that manufactures and sells cars. It is attempting to revolutionize the sector and change the way we drive. In pursuing this dream, the company will stumble along the way and face numerous roadblocks. Therefore, to analyze Tesla with the same performance metrics as the other car manufacturers is a futile exercise. The believers in the company are confident that Tesla will be able to achieve its objective and assume a leadership position in the future. Hence, they are valuing Tesla with a high premium compared to the other automakers. The non-believers, on the other hand, feel that the other automobile manufacturers will catch up with Tesla, which will prevent it from commanding a sizeable lead over other companies. Hence, they have valued Tesla like any other car company. So, as investors, what should we do? Before we dive into the specific details of Tesla, let’s first check the market share of electric vehicles out of the total car sales. Current market share of electric cars Globally, the number of electric vehicles in 2016 rose to 2 million, an increase of 60% over the previous year, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA). However, even with the increase, the total share of the plug-in and battery-operated vehicles is only a minuscule 0.2% of the total light-duty vehicles sold. Nevertheless, the numbers will increase in the years ahead, as various countries move towards reducing pollution. Electric Vehicle Initiative is a program involving major developed nations like the US, China, parts of Europe and the UK, which aims to increase the market share of electric vehicles to 30% by 2030. India, though not a part of the above group – but has more than a billion in population and a growing middle class – has said that it wants to sell only electric cars by the end of the next decade. Optimistic figure by BP Chief Economist Spencer Dale is for the electric vehicle market to grow to 450 million by 2035. The future for electric vehicles looks promising. Is Tesla a leader in its segment? Source: Inside EVs The monthly sales figures above show that two of Tesla’s models are among the top 5 selling electric cars in the US. This shows that the current models of Tesla are popular and in demand. But, what does the analyst community expect from Tesla in the future? Tesla invests heavily in R&D and is a leader in revolutionizing the plug-in technology. The efforts of today will benefit Tesla in the future to sell more cars. The latest Long-Term Electric Vehicle Outlook by Bloomberg New Energy Finance puts Tesla in the driver’s seat and expects it to emerge as “the stand-out” with total sales of 709,000 vehicles by 2021. “If they can stick to the Model 3 timeline, they’re going to be at the front edge of this for a while,” BNEF analyst Colin McKerracher said of Tesla in a phone interview to Bloomberg. As shown above, expectations are that Tesla will extend its lead over the other car makers in the next five years. Huge expectations from the Model 3 launch Currently, the deliveries of the two cars, Model S and Model X has plateaued for the past four quarters. However, there is a huge expectation from the new car, Model 3. This is the car that is likely to boost Tesla’s car sales exponentially, because it has been priced attractively at $35,000, way lower than its two current offerings. This helps a number of people to own a top-class electric car at an affordable price. Its popularity can be gauged from the 400,000 pre-orders – people who have paid to reserve a Model 3 car. Elon Musk’s tweets confirm that the first delivery of 30 cars will be given to the lucky owners on July 28. Thereafter, in August, the company expects to manufacture 100 units and increase it to 1500 in September. It hopes to reach 20,000 cars by the end of the year. Eventually, The Verge expects Tesla to manufacture 500,000 cars annually. Therefore, the next few months will be important for Tesla. The user reviews of the new car and the company’s ability to meet production timelines will affect its stock price. Tesla is planning to expand beyond manufacturing cars While valuing Tesla, one should keep in mind that it isn’t only a car manufacturing company. In order to realize the dream of electrifying the way we travel, Tesla had to bring down the cost of the Lithium-ion batteries and also mass produce them. This led to the birth of Gigafactory, a facility, which will have a capacity of up to 35 gigawatt hours of cell production and 50 gigawatt hours of pack production by 2018, reports Bloomberg. Tesla plans to manufacture battery packs for homes and for backup of the electric grid. It has already inked a deal to supply 20 megawatts/80 megawatt-hours of energy storage to Southern California Edison. Tesla’s purchase of SolarCity Corp., underlines its goal to become a clean-energy company in the future. What are Tesla’s competitors doing? While Tesla is out to change the way we drive, the traditional automakers have taken note of the changing requirement of the public for a cleaner vehicle. Therefore, the big auto companies like General Motors, Nissan, Ford, Toyota are also jumping into this fray with their own electric or plug-in hybrid cars. Volvo, the Swedish car manufacturer, owned by the Chinese automotive conglomerate Geely, has gone a step ahead. In a recent press release, it announced that every car launched by Volvo from 2019 will have an electric motor – both fully electric cars and hybrid cars. “This is about the customer,” said Håkan Samuelsson, president and chief executive. “People increasingly demand electrified cars and we want to respond to our customers’ current and future needs. You can now pick and choose whichever electrified Volvo you wish.” Other than this there are a number of new startups who have jumped into the fray. Therefore, Tesla will not have it easy. It will have to weather increasing competition from the traditional automakers and startups. Hence, the market will watch the performance of every electric car – both Tesla’s and its competitors – to justify the premium valuation Tesla enjoys. Tesla has a very small room for error. Any failure can start a deeper correction in the stock, similar to the one that started on July 3. Technically, what does Tesla’s chart predict? Tesla was trading in a range for more than three years. It finally broke out of it in April of this year. From there, the stock had a near vertical rally, rising about 35% within a matter of a few weeks. In doing so, it came very close to its target objective of $396, where it saw a bout of profit booking. Nevertheless, any breakout of a long consolidation, pulls back and retests the breakout level. Tesla’s stock is currently doing that. It remains bullish as long as it trades above the $280 levels. However, since the fall from the highs of $386.95 has been vicious, it’s better to wait for some kind of a consolidation before entering any fresh long positions. Conclusion Tesla is attempting to change the way we drive; however, it is still in early stages of that change and will not turn a decent profit for a few more quarters. Therefore, its valuation will only be decided on its future prospects. The investor has to be up to date with every news related to the stock, because with its current valuation, it cannot afford any misstep. With too many variables attached to the stock, it is better to avoid it as a long-term investment. The investors can look at more stable stocks with a clearer earnings projection for their long-term portfolio. Important: Never invest (trade with) money you can't afford to comfortably lose.

Analysis The Air Transportation Market is Growing. Where to Invest? Published 1 day ago on August 14, 2018 By Dmitriy Gurkovskiy The Money Makers Club now has 6 of 15 available seats. Learn more here! By Dmitriy Gurkovskiy, Chief Analyst at RoboMarkets Today, practically every person who has internet access knows what Amazon and Alibaba are. These are the world’s largest internet-companies who, for the sale of their products, also use famous platforms like AliExpress and eBay. Their total revenue constantly has been increasing year after year. And as long as these companies are oriented toward international markets, 95% of the goods they sell are delivered by air. Here we could pay attention to the aircraft manufacturers, as the air transportation growth rate will lead to increased demand for new aircraft. Boeing has conducted research according to which the demand for pilots, aircraft technicians and flight attendants in the world is growing, and the biggest activity is expected in the Asia-Pacific Region and in North America. This week, the news feeds have been peppered with headlines on the current shortage of pilots in airline companies, and this demand will be hard to satisfy in the nearest 10 years. Last week, Ryanair pilots went on strike demanding a salary raise and improved improved working conditions. Consequently, investors have started showing interest in airline companies. Also, rumor has it that Warren Buffett is going to invest in one such company (or in several), but it has not yet been indicated which one exactly. According to some reports, it may be Southwest Airlines Co. (NYSE: LUV). Southwest Airlines Co. is an American low-cost airline founded in 1971. It is the biggest low-cost carrier in the United States and in the world by the number of transported passengers. As of December 2017, there were 706 Boeing 737 aircraft in the company. By its financial performance, the company looks attractive for long-term investments. For example, profitability has reached 16.90%. The Short Float ratio is very low – only 1.82% and the debt to equity ratio is 0.48. Based only on the rumors, Southwest Airlines stocks have left the consolidation range between the levels of $50.00 and $53.50, having broken out the 200-day moving average and indicating a possible formation of an ascending trend on D1. The closest resistance levels are at $62 and $67. On W1, a stable uptrend is visible and the broken out levels are becoming a support for underlying price. It is unclear precisely which company Warren Buffett will direct his attention to, so we can analyze the financial standing of other airline companies, which can become potentially interesting investments. Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) is one of the largest airlines in the world. Its destinations network includes countries in Asia, Europe, North, South America and the Caribbean region. As of January 2018, Delta Air Lines had 853 aircraft. The financial performance of this company over the last 4 years shows a drop in income. Profitability is 7.7%, the debt to equity ratio is 0.67 and the Short Float ratio is 2.65%. According to technical analysis, the price is trading near the 200-day moving average, constantly breaking it out in both ways. Since December 2017 the resistance has formed on the chart, as the stock still won’t break out. In this situation, the breakout of $57.00 can be a signal for the further growth of the price of the stocks, but, at the same time, it has to be confirmed by good Q3 results. On W1, there is still an uptrend, but we can already see a more serious resistance area from 2015 in the range between $53 and 56. The price is now in this range. The stock already tried to break out of this resistance in January 2018, but is has never managed to secure its position above this resistance. Here there is a high chance of the price falling to the support at $40. Currently, the potential drop of the price of the stock prevails over the growth. The next airline company which we can direct our attention to is American Airlines, Inc. It is also one of the largest airline carriers in the world with headquarters in Fort Worth (Texas). The aircraft fleet of the company amounts to 958 aircraft in total. Unfortunately, recently the financial performance of this airline has not been perfect either. The debt to equity ratio (25.16) clearly demonstrates how risky this asset may be. That means that the company has 25 times more debts than the means to clear these debts. In this situation, the slightest decline of aviation operations may seriously hurt the company. It should be noted that American Airlines has the “youngest” aircraft fleet now, as the company has invested its money exactly in the aircraft, which has caused such debts. Therefore, the company decided to risk, bu investors have not appreciated it, and thus the price of the stocks in 2018 was constantly falling. Currently, the stock is in a downtrend. The price is gradually dropping within the descending channel, breaking out the support levels. However, near the level of $36 there has appeared a surge in rise, which indicates a possible forming of a strong support. This can be due to rumors about Buffett’s interest towards the airline companies: his fund has now about $100 billion of available cash and a part of it will get to the market. Overall, the stocks of American Airlines seem to be a very risky investment. There is another large airline company, which may be interesting from the point of view of investments: United Continental Holdings. United Continental Holdings (NYSE: UAL) is the fourth largest airline company in the United States. It appeared out of the merger of United Airlines and Continental Airlines in 2010. As of June 2018, the aircraft fleet of United Continental Holdings amounts to 716 aircraft. Also, as in the two previously described airline companies, the most successful financial year was 2015. According to those results, profits reached $7.34 billion. The Short Float ratio is 5.20%; the debt of the airline is 1.62 times bigger than its internal funds. On D1, the technical analysis indicates an uptrend, as the price is now above the 200-day moving average and has secured its position above $80. In this situation, the further growth of the price cannot be excluded. On W1, the stock also shows a stable uptrend trend and is currently trading near its historical maximums. Thus, the technical analysis indicates a good growth potential for this stock, but the possibility of the correction of the price to $75 cannot be excluded either. Having summarized the data on the revenue, we can see the big picture in the airline transportation market for 4 airlines. American Airlines has lost the most income, while Southwest Airlines has been constantly increasing its profit. The rest of the data indicates that the riskiest assets is American Airlines – its debt is the biggest out of all the 4 companies, its profitability is low and its Short Float is high. To sum up, for the nearest years Southwest Airlines looks the most attractive investment-wise. Amid all these data, Southwest Airlines noticeably stands out – all the rest have not been able to restore the previous revenue level after 2015. The fact of the matter is that Southwest Airlines has concentrated on low-cost transportation and this decision turned out to be the right one. If Buffett’s fund does buy Southwest stocks, this may become a very good investment for the coming years. Nevertheless, even without it, the expected growth of the passenger throughput will only be increasing the profit of this company and, consequently, the price of its stocks.

Continue Reading Stock Picks Stock Pick: Twitter Incorporated Published 1 week ago on August 8, 2018 By Kiril Nikolaev The Money Makers Club now has 6 of 15 available seats. Learn more here! Twitter Incorporated operates a popular social media platform that enables users to post and engage with messages known as tweets. In addition, the social media channel offers promoted products and services which include promoted trends, promoted accounts, and promoted tweets. These features allow advertisers to endorse their products and services. The company has 3,372 employees with 2017 revenues amounting to $2.44 billion. Technical Analysis of Twitter Incorporated (TWTR) TWTR moved as high as 74.73 in December 2013. Unfortunately for buyers at that level, the stock went into a freefall after it hit that price level. The downtrend began in March 2014 when TWTR breached support of 50. Bulls mounted multiple attacks to take out the resistance, but each attempt was denied. With bears in full control of the market, the stock dropped to as low as 13.91 in February 2016. At that price level, TWTR formed a solid base. The base building continued until October 2017 when the stock surged in price and volume. The price action was a signal that the stock was ready for a bull run. Technical analysis show TWTR broke out of a rounding bottom reversal pattern on the daily and weekly charts. The breakout looks valid as it was pushed by heavy volume. On top of that, the stock climbed as high as 47.79 in June 2018. Recently, TWTR has been correcting. Nevertheless, this may be an opportunity to buy the dip. Fundamental Analysis of Twitter Incorporated (TWTR) On top of the technical analysis, fundamentals offer some support to our bullish outlook. TWTR’s trailing twelve months (TTM) price to earnings ratio (PE ratio) is 62.63. The stock appears overvalued. However, it has a three-year maximum of 333.4. This tells us that investors are willing to pay a premium for TWTR shares. In addition, Variety reports that Twitter’s quarterly results beat expert estimates. Analysts predicted that the company would generate revenues of $605 million and a profit of 12 cents per share. However, Twitter posted revenues of $665 million and an earnings per share of 16 cents. The strategy is to buy on dips as close to 30 as possible. If bulls can stay above this level, then we might see TWTR climb to 39.80. This point is crucial because by then, the stock would have created an inverse head and shoulders pattern. We’ll revisit TWTR once the target is hit for the possibility of a breakout. The timeline for the initial target is less than three months. Daily TWTR Chart Weekly TWTR Chart As of this writing, the Twitter Incorporated stock (TWTR) is trading at 32.98. Summary of Strategy Buy: As close to 30 as possible. Target: 39.80 Stop: Close below 28.40. Important: Never invest (trade with) money you can't afford to comfortably lose.

Learn more here! By: Dmitriy Gurkovskiy, Chief Analyst at RoboMarkets. About two weeks ago, we published an article on Tesla and its future prospects, but today we will talk about this company once again. On August 1, Tesla reported on second-quarter financials. The results are sad – the losses of the company are topping record levels. The second-quarter losses reached $718 million USD, and compared to Q2 2017 they have gone up more than two times. If we look closer at the dynamics of what is currently happening, we will see that the growth of the losses is gradually slowing down and, at the same time, the overall income of the company is growing. From this perspective, the future looks quite bright – if it goes on like that, the company will very soon be able to become profitable. As a result, amid the growing losses, the price of Tesla’s stock has increased by more than 20%. Here, the situation is exactly the opposite with regard to that of Facebook, whose share price has fallen by 20% despite massive profit growth. Tesla investors have paid attention not to the growing losses, but to the promises of Elon Musk to reach profitability in the next two quarters of the year. Share prices have been pushed higher by another growth accelerator as well, which may later lead to an even bigger increase in price. The short float ratio for Tesla shares is 27.38% and it demonstrates that every third investor is going short. Such an impressive growth has naturally provoked the closing of short positions. According to some reports, the losses of the bears on Tesla shares reached $2 billion USD last week, and many have not completed their transactions yet hoping for the price to pull back in order to reduce the present losses. But if the decline does not follow, they will again become “clean buyers”, pushing the stock price further up. Tesla presents a unique case for Wall Street; if we analyze its financial indicators, we will see that one absolutely should not invest in a company with such a high short float ratio. Let us compare Tesla with Ford – one of the leading car manufacturers in the world. The capitalization of Tesla is already 1.5 times bigger than that of Ford. The ratio of debt of capital for Tesla is 2.42, meanwhile the same ratio for Ford is even worse – 4.19. This being said, the profitability of Ford is 4.30% and that of Tesla is in the minus and amounts to -18.80%. Despite positive quarterly results, Ford shares cannot form an ascending trend and are trading at $10 USD. The decline had been forecast even before the reports on Ford shares were published in the article in June. At the same time, amid the growing losses, Tesla stocks are in an uptrend. There are 23 times more outstanding shares of Ford than those of Tesla. If, in this situation, we divide the price of Tesla shares by 23, the result will be that one share costs about $15 USD. In other words, even in the case of such comparison we see that the shares of the company are overpriced, and if we add up the debts and profitability, it will become clear why Tesla’s short float ratio is so high. However, there is one more detail that the company had concealed when the report was published. In the second quarter Tesla has moved over to a new income report standard of ASC 606 which has provokedartificial revenue growth. When the growth of the revenue was being compared to the same in the Q2 2017, the values have not been adjusted according to the new rules and it has not been indicated that the calculation has been made according to the old standard. Thus, the company has misled investors by this data and it does not seem possible to calculate the real growth of the revenue in the second quarter, as Tesla has not published any detailed information on the adjustments which had influenced this report. If we look at the diagram at the beginning of this article, we notice the positive dynamics of revenue. But if we look closer, we will see that the situation is completely different – the revenue values have in fact been inflated, while it is impossible to calculate the real values at the moment. It turns out that only the third-quarter report will reveal the real dynamics of Tesla’s revenue. As of yet, only the fact of the growing losses has been confirmed. On the basis of this information, at the moment of the publication of the statistics not everyone understood what these numbers reflect. This is why the demand for Tesla shares has grown so sharply. In light of this, it would be logical if investors reconsider the situation and begin unloading Tesla shares. But, historically, shares of Tesla have long ago stopped being governed by logic, which is why the sellers can once again experience losses. Along with them, there will be more ill-wishers which are predicting an imminent collapse of Tesla and are trying to persuade everyone to sell their Tesla shares. Possibly, their predictions will become reality one day – the only question is if they will be able to cover the losses, which they have experienced from such a long wait. If Tesla shares are not governed by logic, then what is the growth accelerator? The answer is banal – rumors and expectations. Elon Musk has promised that the company will become profitable during the next two quarters of the year (although he always promises something). Tesla is now setting all its expectations at Model 3 and the huge demand for it. We cannot ignore the talent of Elon Musk either. He is not only a great inventor but also a good seller. Perhaps, it is only his persuasiveness that makes investors believe that the future is bright for Tesla and stimulates them to further invest. Currently, the company produces 5,000 electric cars a week and is planning to be producing 6,000 by the end of August. The technical analysis still indicates that there is an uptrend and that the probability of the further growth of the price of the shares is high. The price is above the 200-day moving average and it has bounced off the support level of 300 USD. The closest resistance is at 400 USD. Disclaimer!
