What caused TSLA stock to go up/down today?

Hoping this thread might pick up steam as TSLA stock goes through some amazing intra-day and open/closing swings due to the large short interest (I'm assuming).

For instance: Yesterday the stock dipped really low at closing so I bought. Today it jumped back up and I sold for a healthy profit.

Why did the stock dip yesterday and then rise so much today? I didn't see any news that would justify it.

Went over 62,- to fall to 57,- on high volume.
Are the shorters busy again or what?

I can't understand why TSLA is so volatile today. Up to over 62, now down to 56 with no bad news? People worried that tomorrows press will be bad? I'm loosing my shirt here! I bought options to go UP not down!

... AND there was the announcement with Auto-Pilot-Cars and Google ... what is the matter? Must be technicly driven. Searched the web for anything negativ... or does someone out there know something today, what we see in the tommorow news?

Sorry for my bad english- I'm just a german =)

My guess is that it is simply people taking advantage of the recent price run up and locking in their profits. The fact that Q1 will be profitable is already baked into the stock price. So, if people believe that there won't be any new and exciting news in the announcement tomorrow, then the news will either leave the price unchanged or it will drop. If you believe that, then it is better to sell today.

I, on the other hand, am long TSLA and have no intention of selling my shares before or after tomorrow's announcement.

I just hope they meet or exceed estimates. A + $0.50 would be awesome haha.

In the past, Tesla has gone down after last several announcements. I think you are seeing people taking profits before loading back up with Tesla stock.

I closed out this morning. I might miss a rise after the announcement, but I will decide Thursday the next trend.

From my bank account, I thought about shorting Tesla today, but I could not bring myself to do it. I would have made a few bucks, but I'll stand buy to get back in first as it will rise again.

I used this little drawback to buy more shares in TSLA
cost averaging to 42, and will remain long

Following news on TSLA in recent months, one begins to recognize a masterful choreography behind this procession of announcements.
More evidence every week of the skill in timing, planning, and execution, that TM continues to show (even in adapting to and responding to mistakes).

Without advertising Tesla is constantly in the news and takes advantage of adversity!

And if the Consumer Reports review of the Model S July's upcoming edition really says it is the "best vehicle we have ever tested," then watch out for a real spike in demand, and just as the car is reaching new markets in Europe, and shortly after in Asia.

All this reinforces confidence that 1Q earnings and future guidance will look better than the preview offered in early April.
Summer will really open up the playbook, IMO.

I think the emerging selling point , surprisingly for me, is the exceptional safety. Maybe the best in the world for any sedan.

Would love to see Elon get into some superlatives here with future interviews. Can't underestimate a customers value of driving the safest vehicle on the road in all weather conditions. Follows the peace of mind theme.

Speaking of short interest, what do you call a midget psychic who just escaped prison?

A small medium at large.

And now back to your regularly scheduled program...

so my trading account got activated today, and like a kid i bought all my shares when the market open, guess what happen few minutes after that, DOWNNNNNN, for f*** sakes lol

I guess i should have listen the 10am trading rule :(

Closed at 92.73 today (6.29%) and up at $93.00 in after hours.

Well. I sold about half my TSLA yesterday at my limit of $92.40. It pays for my Model S, and leaves me with the other half for long term.

Its still going up. I want to wait until it reach 100's until I sell my.

Just $3 to go to hit that level!

Stock hit 103 pre market this morning. Looking like it will open around 101. Egads!

nickj, THAT's over the speed limit!

Richard ;)

@Rchiang, I bet you're seriously considering holding still haha!

I tried the day trade thing with Tesla. Unfortunately I've missed the boat a couple of times when the stock surged. Made up some ground with the volitility, (buy low, sell $1.50 higher, rinse, repeat) but it seems that I'm able to play with less and less shares cause the darned thing keeps going up!

Just hold.

Wait until Gen III year 2, then decide if you wanna sell.

Cory johnson. Anytime he says anything on bloomberg the stock goes up.

3:45, 108 and surging, final push started about 3:15. I smell crapped-up shorts.

Makes me so mad at myself for not buying more when it was at 50!!! Of course at the time, I thought I was taking a gamble buying 200 shares....

Closed at 110.3. Speechless.

jonesxander: Yea I think I'm going to keep it until there is some indication that might drop. I wonder if there was anybody here that already paid for their MS in full by now if they sold their stock?

Me: Pre-tax yes, not post tax (yet).

Jason Calacanis (owner of Sig 0001) paid for his car when the stock went from 19 to 38 the first time.

Oh to have bought in at 19....

Let's get back on topic on this thread. Anyone know what caused the stock to jump so much today?

Speculation. I haven't seen anything as far as their planned announcement.

Supercharger will be cross country LA to NY for free, cause it up to go up another $20/share I would imagine. The $125 price point for the convertible shares comes and goes, and Musk looks even more like a genius.

That's what I would guess.

Then next week, another announcement with Google/Yahoo/Apple, and boom, easily up to $200/share.


Sold half my shares @ $92.4 last week. That paid for the car. With the $7500 tax credit it may have paid for the taxes on income from what I will have to take out of my IRA. I'll have to ask my tax person to see if it will pay for all of it. If I don't take the 4+4 service plan, it will probably pay for everything.

Bordring on 113 in after hours trading!

Guys, while I am obsessed with my Model S and love the company, I am getting worried that the stock is getting so overheated that a major correction is unavoidable. I think Tesla has a good chance of becoming the GM of EVs and changing the automotive market but I think the radical stock movement of the last month will harm it in the long term.

Sure, maybe it will drop, but I bought so little that I feel absolutely no compulsion to get out, and can ride it as far as it goes. Sheer genius! ;)

david70: That's awesome! Only I wished I got it low around 30's and I would made some money plus the car. But can't complain what's going on now...
