Tesla is one of the best companies in the luxury automobile & clean energy space. Truth be told, Tesla has carved a niche for itself in the high-end Electric Vehicle (EV) space with exceptional design & state of the art features. Some of their cars look like they are straight out of a sci-fi movie! What’s more? The TSLA stock has seen a year to date increase of 400%!


However, Tesla is not just a vehicle manufacturer or a clean energy company. It is a brand built around the value of innovation & research with the nuanced business leadership of Elon Musk. Musk's stellar track record of building businesses such as  Zip2 Corporation, PayPal, SpaceX, The Boring Company, Hyperloop, and others can be a solid proposition for investors looking to buy TSLA stocks.


But should you invest in a stock that is preferred mainly due to the cult following of its owner? Should you invest in a stock outside the S&P 500? Let’s take a look at the facts & figures around the TSLA stock.

Important: We recommend you invest based on expert advice from award-winning advisor Rick Holbrook. Learn More

But some experts cite the presence of Elon Musk as the primary reason for Tesla’s continued growth. If that’s the general consensus then Elon Musk’s controversial comments & actions can pose a threat to investors who have bought TSLA shares.
