112Tesla stock drops on fear that comes with low gas prices [w/video]

TSLA Goes Down, Then Back Up, Then Who Knows?

Tesla's stock price was down to around $206 earlier today, but it's back up to over $216 now. Friday, it closed at over $223. Some stock blogs are saying the price could go as low as $165 in the not-too-distant future. What's behind these wild swings that CNBC's Phil LeBeau calls, "the worst seven-day trading period ever for shares of Tesla"? One potential culprit is today's low gas prices.

137Tesla rockets to $259 a share on Morgan Stanley, Consumer Reports announcements [w/video]

Remember way back when we mentioned that Tesla's Gigafactory for batteries might prove to be a good investment opportunity, with its potential to bring cell prices down to a level that could make the forthcoming Tesla Model E affordable, not to mention attractive for massive amounts of renewable energy storage? Well, today the automaker's share price popped – we'd say exploded, but it's not as alliterative – up over 15 percent to hit an all-time $259.20 high. It seems market analysts

AddTesla Motors stock breaks $200 mark for first time

It seems not that long ago that the air had been let out of Tesla Motors high-flying stock price. The company didn't adequately thrill the market when it disclosed its third-quarter 2013 financial results last November and TSLA price plummeted quickly enough to trigger a temporary halt to short sales. Immediately after that, the infamous Tenessee CarBQ happened, adding to the loss of altitude. Shares that had been, at one point, worth as much as $193.37 spent the last half of November 2013 bumbl

The nascent battery-car market just might be short-circuiting.

AddTesla says Model S fire triggered by 'highly uncommon occurrence' [w/video]

By now, you've seen the Tesla headlines, read the reports that its stock dropped (it's now bounced back somewhat), and maybe even discussed the Model S fire with friends and coworkers. But there is now some more official information to share. Yesterday, in addition to publishing emails between the car's owner and Tesla representatives, the Tesla Motors blog published an article about the "highly uncommon occurrence" that revealed that the automaker has sent a team of experts to investigate the c

246Tesla says Model S fire started in battery pack; share prices falling

Yesterday's fire that engulfed a Tesla Model S, the first blaze involving the critically acclaimed electric sedan, was caused when a piece of road debris impacted the front of the car, damaging the battery pack and starting a fire, according to an email sent to AutoblogGreen by Tesla. Now, The New York Times has learned that the fire was indeed caused by debris that made "a direct impact ... to one of the 16 modules within the Model S battery pack," according to Tesla spokesperson Elizabeth Jarv

94Tesla shares hit yet another record high at $180

As fantasy football players will probably know, the sports media industry is figuring out how to get algorithms to automatically "write" articles based on data sets and some sort of phrase generator. We're still real people here at Autoblog, but when it comes to yet another post on how Tesla Motors stock (TSLA) has hit yet another record high, we could use some robotic help.

19'Teslanaires' getting rich off of TSLA, but there are risks, too

Those who've sold Tesla Motors (TSLA) shares for a million or more in gains belong to a new exclusive club, the "Teslanaires" club. If you've been following the stock price, you know this has been a great year to own those shares – since May of this year, after first quarter earnings were announced, the prices started shooting up. If you were fortunate to own a portfolio of Tesla stock, that value skyrocketed from around $40 a share in April to around $160 a share in September. The market

AddTesla joining NASDAQ-100 July 15, booting off Oracle

The meteoric rise of Tesla Motors' stock this year has not only raised a bunch of money for the company and paid off its debts, it's also about to help push the stock into the rarefied NASDAQ-100. The news out today is that TSLA will join the NASDAQ-100 Index, a listing of the 100 largest non-financial companies on the NASDAQ, on July 15. Since the NASDAQ-100 is limited to 100 stocks, when one company enters, someone else gets pushed out of the door. The victim here will be the computer technolo

AddTesla raises $1 billion as stock climbs; predictions have it at $200 (or $37) *UPDATE

Despite the company's recent string of successes, there's still a lot of skepticism about Tesla out there. Some of the negativity focuses on the lack of recharging infrastructure, some on the company's expensive cars and how it'll be difficult to make a mass-market car. And when it comes to the company's stock price – TSLA is currently at around $90 – the predictions are all over the map. Some say it's still worth shorting (that is, predicting it will drop). Some say it could reach $

AddTesla selling new stock, debt worth $830m in order to pay off DOE loan

Anyone paying attention to the electric vehicle scene for the last few weeks knows that the stock value of Tesla Motors has been climbing faster than a SpaceX rocket. As of this writing, TSLA is sitting pretty at $92 a share. Three weeks ago, it was at a then-record-high of $53.

67Wall Street loves Tesla's Elon Musk, values the brand higher than Fiat

Tesla's value on the stock market far exceeds the number of vehicles it contributes to the automotive market. According to a report from Automotive News, Tesla is currently valued at $8.8 billion. Almost unbelievably, though we've never claimed to have a firm grasp on the inner workings of the stock market, that's a full billion dollars more valuable than Fiat and three times more valuable than PSA Peugeot Citroën, says the report.

244Why Tesla will need more loans to make it through 2013

It's fun to bet against Elon Musk and Tesla – that's the best reason we can find for so many people doing it even though the man, his company and his cars are still here and still very popular. The latest name inscribed in the column labeled "Skeptical of Tesla" is John Shinal at Market Watch who, in year-end commentary on Tesla's financials, says that the "carmaker's financials are reminiscent of a dot-com's." He does not mean that in the good way.

AddTesla shares skyrocket on Morgan Stanley's "overweight" rating

Throughout the morning and into the early afternoon hours, shares of Tesla Motors (TSLA) skyrocketed after Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jones upgraded the automaker's rating from "equal weight" to "overweight."
