Tesla shares

Tesla shares fell 12.2% to 108.10, falling below a bear market low last week, hitting their worst level since August 2020. This is the worst single-day loss. of the EV giant for more than two years. TSLA stock is down 37% in December and 65% for all of 2022.

Tesla’s delivery numbers hit a record high in Q4, but for the second straight quarter, they fell short of lower estimates and actual production. That’s despite big year-end incentives, especially in China and the US, to boost sales.

The outlook could be bleak for 2023, with new Tesla EV orders well below current delivery rates.

Bernstein’s Toni Sacconaghi wrote on Sunday, “Tesla’s Q4 annual order rate including significant discounts is only ~1 million units and the company’s goal is to sell close to 2 million units by 2023 without no new models.”

With a low backlog, Tesla may need to offer discounts or offers much higher than the year-end offer just to maintain its Q4 delivery pace in 2023. But that could mean with a big impact on Tesla’s profit margins.

Market Timing with IBD’s ETF Market Strategy

What to do now

This is not a good time to take on new positions. It is a market correction with major indices, sectors and individual sectors prone to reversals.

Don’t be tempted by a momentary market boom that pushes the stock into a buy zone. Within a few minutes on Tuesday, some stocks signaled to buy, but most quickly died out. Although the major indexes ended with moderate losses, an investor jumping into MBLY stock near Tuesday’s open could be suffering a 10% loss.

Bottom line: Don’t act as if the market is in an uptrend until the market is actually in an uptrend.

However, many good stocks continue to trade near the buy points, while the market’s recovery attempt could spark a further rally in the coming days. So build your watchlist and stay engaged.
