Differences between Investing vs Trading

Based in Austin, Texas, Tesla was founded in 2003 and is a leading name in the electric vehicle industry. Their overall stated goal is to help people move to cleaner products such as electric vehicles and solar power. As well as battery-powered and plug-in cars, they also offer clean energy solutions such as solar panels and battery energy storage.

The company was founded by Martin Eberhard and Marc Tarpenning, but a year after founding it, they received a $6.5 million investment from Elon Musk. This made Musk the largest shareholder and also the chairman of Tesla.

Their first car to hit the market was the Tesla Roadster, which was brought out in 2009. Later models include the Tesla Model S and Model X. Their Model 3 vehicle was launched in 2017 and soon became the top-selling plug-in electric car, as well as being the first to sell a million units.

Despite not reporting an annual profit until 2020, Tesla was already regarded as one of the world’s most valuable companies and the most valuable car manufacturer before this. The growing demand for electric vehicles as a greener alternative to fossil fuels has led to surging sales across the planet, pushing the Tesla share price (listed as TSLA) up even as they failed to break into profit. As the leading clean-energy car manufacturer, their share price has benefitted massively from the focus on switching from fossil fuels.

Issues such as lawsuits and recalls due to product failures have produced some controversies that have, on occasion, adversely affected the Tesla share value. On the other hand, the likes of emerging legislation to help the environment and an increasing awareness around being kind to the planet have helped to keep Tesla in the news. The previous points continue to be key factors to be aware of, together with any new rivals in the sector.

As with any type of stock, the high cost of investing and the potential volatility are major factors to consider. In the case of TSLA stock, we also need to take into account the fact that they operate in a cutting-edge industry subject to changing conditions and breakthroughs. For some investors, this makes the idea of investing in an index fund that includes Tesla a better option.

Yet, some investors may be attracted by the increased volatility, in the hope that they can benefit from price rises. The company’s stated policy is to retain all profits for future growth, rather than paying dividends.
