Tesla Gigafactory Could Be Boon for Graphite, Lithium, Cobalt: Simon Moores

The Gold Report: Tesla Motors Inc. (TSLA:NASDAQ) is planning to build a $5-billion "Gigafactory" in the southwestern U.S. that would produce batteries for its high-end electric cars. You seem excited about it. Tell investors why they should be.

Simon Moores: This one plant would essentially double the world's output of electric vehicle (EV) batteries. That's 500,000 batteries a year at capacity. The idea is to drive down the cost of EV batteries by 30% or more. Tesla is focusing on the supply chain to build the lowest-cost batteries possible. If it can make the cost of its cars much cheaper, it should spark mass uptake of electric vehicles. It's a plan to turn the world electric, in a sense, and Tesla begins in 2017 with the Gigafactory and the launch of its third generation and first mass-market model.

"Syrah Resources Ltd. has been active in 2014, announcing two MOUs for offtakes with China and Europe."

TGR: Would Tesla be building batteries solely for Tesla or would it be leasing its technology to other vehicle manufacturers? Continue reading "Tesla Gigafactory Could Be Boon for Graphite, Lithium, Cobalt: Simon Moores"

General indices in the U.S. are in bull trends and I expect to see these trends resume and continue for the balance of 2013. Near term, I expect to see stocks begin to consolidate their recent gains before once again moving higher.

Watch what I said about Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) last night on CNBC Asia. Does anyone out there remember the dot-com days? Is it deja vu all over again with Twitter? Continue reading "Is The Bull Run Over?"

By: Joseph Hogue of Street Authority

The man with the golden touch

In today's video, I will be analyzing the the stock of Tesla Motors (NASDAQ:TSLA). Tesla is one of the newest stocks on the NASDAQ and one that's been getting a lot of attention lately. Late yesterday, they announced their earnings and to the surprise of many analysts and the market, the stock of Tesla jumped dramatically today and is currently trading 15% higher than yesterday's close.

Tesla, I believe, is one of the real success stories in the automotive scene. The company is run by Elon Musk, who is a modern day Henry Ford and an extraordinary serial entrepreneur at the same time. Elon is laser-focused on making Tesla the leading electric car company in the world. One of his other endeavors is SpaceX, which as the name implies has to do with spacecraft. SpaceX was recently awarded $1 billion from NASA to supply and act as a ferry back and forth to the space station.

Looking at the movement in the stock of Tesla, you can see why it has made a lot of investors very happy in the last 12 months. I will be analyzing Tesla using our tried and trusted Trade Triangles and showing you the results of using this approach. Continue reading "The man with the golden touch"
