Review of Tesla (TSLA)
01 Mar 2022 (308 views)  

I hold 400 shares of Tesla at an average cost of $980 USD. It dropped to a low of $755 on 25 Feb 2022, giving me a loss of $90,000. 

The stock price has recovered to $870 on 28 Feb, reducing my loss to $48,000.

I had bought and sold Tesla stocks over the past three years and realized a large gain. Although my current holdings show a paper loss, this is more than covered by the past realized gains.

I have monitored the development of the electric vehicle industry for the past years. I am confident that Tesla is way ahead of the other EV manufacturers. Although the other manufacturers are affected by supply chain issues, Tesla appears to be able to overcome these issues and to sell and deliver more EVs for the near term future. 

Tesla stock hit a high of over $1,200 on 4 Nov and 3 Jan. I expect the stock price to recover above $1,000 soon. At least, it will cover my current cost. 

The current PE ratio (TTM) is 177.6X. This is high. However, I expect the EPS to double in 2022, reducing the PE ratio of 80. This is still high, but is acceptable for a high growth stock. 

In recent days, there were several developments that were bullish for Tesla stock. I followed them closely.

Note - I am sharing my personal view of this stock. Please do not take it as investment advice.
