Tesla Stock Begins 2018 in Bear Market Territory

Tesla, Inc. is not just a maker of luxury electric automobiles – it is also a solar energy company. Investors will be focusing on offerings in the trucking industry, with vehicles ranging from pickup trucks to large multi-wheeled freight carriers.

The stock closed 2017 at $311.35, up 45.7% for the year and in bull market territory at 47.6% above its 52-week low of $210.96 set on Jan. 3, 2017. The stock set its all-time intraday high of $389.61 on Sept. 18 and is in bear market territory since then, down 20.1% since this high. (See also: Tesla Could Jump 70% on Model 3 Success: Analysts.)

At mid-year, the stock closed at $361.61, and my semiannual value level of $313.87 was tested as a buy level on July 6.
