Why Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) Might Be the Market’s Biggest Mistake of the Year

Tesla is one of the most talked about stocks in the market. But, it is also one of the most misunderstood, with a sky-high valuation based only off of fanciful words from its CEO. Read here to find out what makes the valuation so out of whack, and learn of a handful of better investments in the auto industry.
Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) has become the ultimate fanboy stock.
TSLAEarnings for the fourth quarter came in at a loss of 13 cents a share, where the company was expected to earn a 32 cent per share profit. Losses continue to grow. Last quarter it lost over $70 million, in the third quarter it lost $60 million, in the second quarter it lost $50 million, and…well, you get the picture.
Tesla shipped just around 9,800 cars during the fourth quarter, versus the expected 12,000. Ultimately, it missed its goal of shipping 33,000 cars in 2014.
The company made a slight profit during 1Q 2013, but it has now posted a loss for seven straight quarters. That’s a trend that’s expected to continue for the foreseeable future. (more)

Chris Vermeulen – Gold Still in a Bear Market, but Don’t Lose Hope

from Financial Survival Network
We talked with the Gold and Oil Guy today, Chris Vermeulen. He says that Gold is still in a bear market, like it has been for the past three years. There’s an opportunity to pick up a quick profit when it rebounds from its current plunge, but don’t be fooled. It’s all setting up very nicely for the ultimate bull market that’s getting closer. Same with the much maligned Toronto Venture Exchange (TSX:V), which is at record lows due to its composition of miners and resource companies. Chris believes that when it comes back, it will come back very big, so consider the ETF. Chris is very bearish on Oil and doesn’t see it for quite some time, so don’t chase it lower. Believe the technicals, not your heart.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average Outlook - AE

DJIND-W 2-17-2015

The Dow made a new high today above last week. It is still is the sideways mode with the key resistance in the 18500-18600 level. Energy models are not at the highs so we are not in a major topping pattern. The Dow has been contained nicely by the Breakout Channel constructed from the October 2011 low.
DJIFOR-W 2-17-2015

A month-end closing above 17970 will warn that we can still see an early March high. That may then lead to a retest of support going into June. A low at that time will be very constructive for the longer term looking into 2017. It really appears that 2017 will not a a year we are going to forget.

Southern Company (NYSE: SO): Time To Buy The Pullback?

When interest rates bottomed last month, bonds and several interest rate sensitive sectors of the stock market started to fall.
I was looking for a substantial correction in the utilities sector, and it appears to be well on its way to completing one. But some stocks in the group fell harder than others and may already be ripe for the picking. (more)
