Market Growth

When it comes to the market, Tesla’s stock has seen multiple days of gains in early July. In fact, it pretty much erased all of its year-to-date losses, with the stock up around 5% since the start of the year.

Above Expectations

Why the positive moves? Analysts have been encouraged by Tesla’s second-quarter vehicle production and deliveries numbers, both of which beat Wall Street expectations. According to Tesla, it produced more than 400,000 vehicles and delivered about 4440,000 vehicles in the second quarter.

In addition, there has been momentum surrounding the company’s artificial intelligence businesses and its development of more budget-friendly electric vehicles. Investors see Tesla poised for growth.

Rough Start to the Year

All of this comes after a rough first half of the year for Tesla. Its fourth-quarter earnings weren’t great. Also, according to Yahoo Finance, “A 9% year-over-year drop in first-quarter vehicle deliveries sent shares even lower as investors questioned the EV maker’s sky-high valuation and demand still left in the US.”

Investors also have been concerned about competition abroad from Chinese EV makers. That’s led to a price war that’s forced Tesla to cut prices.

Coming Up

If you’re looking to add Tesla to your retirement portfolio, you may want to mark July 23 on your calendar. Tesla is set to report its next quarterly results on that date. Then, in early August, Tesla is expected to unveil the much-anticipated robotaxi. This is seen as yet another growth opportunity for the company.
