Solid-state batteries and fully autonomous self-driving autopilot are desperately needed for Tesla to maintain its current stock price valuation

Introduction

The long-term Tesla story is easy to believe in. Elon Musk is a great storyteller and the company has maintained EV innovation leadership for many years. In response, Tesla‘s stock price has soared.

The dangers of binary thinking

Somewhat ironically, both the political left and the political right are fighting the same enemy — authoritarianism.

5 reasons technology stocks have entered a new bear market

People are getting vaccinated, the economy is re-opening, and the world is hopefully getting back to normal soon. This should be great for stocks, right?
