Tesla: Production To Global EV Stock Doubled In 5 Years

Due to the decreasing usage costs of EVs, governments' regulatory credits, and environmental regulations, the EV market outlook is bright. In 2017, Tesla's EV sales to global EV stock ratio was about 2.8%. This ratio increased to 4.4% in 2020 and 6.1% in 2021. In 4Q 2018, Tesla’s operating margin was lower than its competitors. However, by the end of 2021, Tesla’s operating margin bypassed its competitors. TSLA’s well-performed operations and increasing free cash flow will help the company to increase its liquidity at the end of 2022. I am bullish on TSLA stock since I estimate that the stock has a potential to reach between $1200-1300.

Tesla: When ESG Narratives Fail

Tesla is a leading EV player, but it's lagging behind many other companies when it comes to communicating clearly about the emissions it causes. Its emission-reduction efforts are also sub-par. On top of that, EVs aren't as clean as many believe they are, even though they are cleaner than ICE-powered vehicles when driven often. Tesla is currently held by many investors that see it from an ESG perspective, but due to these issues, its image could change over time. Tesla faces additional headwinds from commodity price inflation, China lockdowns, rising interest rates, and so on. All in all, expensive Tesla.
