It May Be The Best Time To Go Short On Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA)

Boston, MA 10/25/2013 (wallstreetpr) – Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) has been gaining steadily before reaching a year-long high on September 30, 2013. After that the share price has been declining bit-by-bit and on Thursday it closed at $173.15. Trade analysts suggest that this company has reached its bubble for this year and that now is the best time to sell Tesla shares. Also they believe that despite third quarter results being around the corner, the share prices are not really going to sky rocket.

Shares coverage

One of the famed critics of Weeden & Co. Steven Russolillo, Michael Purves has covered the shares of this company and believes that most investors have lost out on some extra profit by selling their shares by shorting on Tesla before September 30, 2013. But now is actually the ideal scenario when the investors must short on it. He states that since the company’s share price has increased 400% in the last year, they may be over-valued. And when the bubble bursts sometime in future, the investors will stand to lose if they don’t short it now. He also expects that this quarter’s earnings report will fill in the void in the basic fundamentals and not shoot-up the share price. Its Earnings report for this quarter is set to be released on November 5.
