    Tesla’s Navigate on Autopilot was my CES road trip companion

    I love a good road trip. I've spent hundreds of thousands of miles in cars during my life, and the best times were when I knew it would be hours or even days before I reached my destination. Typically a friend (or friends) or family members would accompany me, but on a few occasions, it was just me, my music collection -- and scenery screaming past me at 70 miles per hour.

    Tesla unveils first home charging station that can be plugged into a wall outlet

    Tesla today is launching a new home charging station designed for the modern home. The new Wall Connector is the auto maker's first home charging solution that can be plugged into a wall outlet rather than being hardwired into the home's electrical system. This is a departure from Tesla's previous strategy but one that makes sense.

    Tesla Doesn’t Need to Sell Cars in China to Succeed There

    Global automobile manufacturers are scrambling to develop services that will allow Chinese car owners to rent out their vehicles when they’re not driving them. Indeed, there’s a growing case to be made that car-sharing represents the future of transport in China, and China could determine the future of car-sharing. Over the last four decades, rising incomes and a booming domestic car industry have flooded Chinese roads with automobiles, contributing to massive air-pollution problems, world-class traffic jams, a city-destroying parking crisis and the loss of livable, pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods.

  • 10 Growth Stocks With the Future Written All Over Them

    10 Growth Stocks With the Future Written All Over Them

    In late 2018, financial markets tumbled on concerns regarding rate hikes, trade tensions and slowing global economic growth. The biggest victims in that market sell-off were growth stocks, which essentially required low rates and continued healthy global growth to sustain their valuations. Those things were being called into question in late 2018. As such, many of the market's high-flying glamour stocks fell 20% or more. Sentiment has changed sharply in 2019. Stocks had a huge, decade-large rebound rally the day after Christmas. Stocks have remained on an uptrend ever since because the Federal Reserve has sounded a much more dovish tone regarding rate hikes, U.S. and China trade talks are progressing well, and the U.S. economy appears to still be quite strong. All in all, the risks which plagued markets in late 2018 are easing in early 2019. As they have, financial markets have rallied, and growth stocks -- which were the biggest losers in late 2018 -- have been among the biggest winners in early 2019. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips This trend should continue. As bullishness returns to the market, money will continue to flow into growth stocks, and growth stocks will outperform. * 8 Dividend Stocks With Growth on the Horizon With that in mind, let's take a look a 10 growth stocks that could win big as markets rebound in 2019. ### Shopify (SHOP) Source: Shopify via Flickr One growth stock that should perform well in both 2019 and over the next five to 10 years is Canadian based e-commerce solutions provider Shopify (NYSE:SHOP). The long-term growth narrative supporting SHOP stock is quite promising. E-commerce is the future. More than that, decentralized e-commerce is the future. Today, the e-commerce market is dominated by a few big players. That won't remain the case forever. Eventually, everyone and anyone in the retail world will have a digital footprint, and that means that over the next several years, there will be a huge influx of new digital retail operations. Shopify provides the building blocks for those digital retail operations. As such, Shopify's addressable market should grow by leaps and bounds over the next several years. Considering Shopify is the head-and-shoulders leader in this space, huge growth in the addressable market will translate into huge growth for the company. Reasonably speaking, huge growth at the company will lead to huge gains for SHOP stock. The stock is already up over 25% since bottoming on Christmas Eve. Thus, a near-term pullback is healthy here and now. But that pullback should be bought, because the stock will ultimately head way higher in a multiyear window. ### Tesla (TSLA) Source: Shutterstock Next up on this list is one of the more controversial names on Wall Street, but nonetheless one that represents huge upside potential in a multiyear window. There has been no shortage of controversy surrounding Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) over the past several quarters. But in the big picture, Elon Musk has remained at the head of the company, Model 3 production and delivery ramp has been wildly successful, the company has managed to turn a profit, international expansion is progressing as planned and cash burn issues are no long front and center. Those are all positive developments. As such, Tesla stock is currently at the upper tend of its 52-week trading range. This strength in Tesla stock will persist in the long term. At its core, this company is at the center of a huge electric vehicle growth narrative that will inevitably and perhaps rapidly sweep across the globe over the next several years. As it does, Tesla will announce more vehicles with better prices, and the company will grow its market share dramatically. Revenue growth will huge. Profit growth will be huge. Tesla stock will march higher. * 10 A-Rated Stocks the Smart Money Is Piling Into Tesla stock is up 16% since Christmas Eve. That's a pretty big rally. Much like Shopify, a near-term pullback is warranted. But, also like Shopify, that pullback is a buying opportunity, since long-term growth trends imply massive multiyear upside. ### Square (SQ) Source: Via Square One of the biggest losers in late 2018 was payments processor Square (NYSE:SQ). But, that also means that this stock has an opportunity to be one of the biggest winners in 2019. Square is at the heart of tomorrow's commerce world, which will inevitably be cash-less and dominated by card and digital payments. Right now, Square dominates on the physical card payment side of things. The company is famous for its payment processors, which allow essentially any retailer with a smartphone to accept card payments. Go to any mall or street market. You will see Square machines everywhere. The proliferation of these payment processors will continue over the next several years as cash becomes increasingly less used. But, that's just one peg of this growth narrative. The other peg has to do with e-commerce. For a long time, Square didn't really have an e-commerce presence. Until now. The company recently launched an in-app payments system that looks very much like PayPal (NASDAQ:PYPL). In so doing, the company has plunged itself into the e-commerce growth narrative too, and only added more firepower to the long-term growth narrative. Square stock is up over 30% since Christmas Eve. That's a huge rally. A pullback is warranted here. But, much like the other stocks on this list, pullbacks in Square are buying opportunities. ### Salesforce (CRM) Source: Shutterstock A discussion of big-growth stocks has heavy overlap with a discussion of cloud stocks, and if you were to have a discussion regarding cloud stocks, that conversation would likely be dominated by Salesforce (NYSE:CRM). CRM stock is truly at the heart of the cloud and data revolutions. Salesforce leverages data and analytics to deliver robust cloud solutions to enterprises that want data-driven insights on their customers. In this sense, the company takes data and turns it into insights via cloud solutions. That promises to be one of the most valuable processes in a world defined by Big Data. There's a lot of competition in this space, but Salesforce has time and time again squashed the competition. Despite rising competitive threats and tougher laps, revenue growth at Salesforce has hardly slowed over the past several years. Back in 2014, revenues grew by 33%. In fiscal 2018, revenues grew by 25%. They are projected to grow by more than 25% this year. Resilient revenue growth in a secular growth industry implies that this company has huge long term potential. * 7 Stocks at Risk of the Global Smartphone Slowdown CRM stock is up 22% since Christmas Eve. But, it remains well off its all time highs, and technical indicators don't scream overbought. As such, this stock has more runway to the upside in the near to medium terms. ### Trade Desk (TTD) Source: Shutterstock Programmatic advertising is the future of the entire advertising industry, and the company at the forefront of the programmatic advertising revolution is The Trade Desk (NASDAQ:TTD). Ads used to be transacted through individuals and firms. You call somebody, you discuss, you negotiate a price and then you have an ad. Now, ads are bought and sold by computers. This computed-powered ad buying is called programmatic advertising. It's the future. Through leveraging AI and data, programmatic advertising makes ad buying and selling quicker, more convenient and cheaper than ever before. In this space, Trade Desk has emerged as a clear leader. But Trade Desk only has a $6 billion market cap. The global advertising industry measures in at $1 trillion. Eventually, all $1 trillion worth of ads will be transacted programmatically, and most of that programmatic spend will happen through Trade Desk. Thus, this is a small company attacking a huge market, and that implies huge gains ahead for TTD stock. Right now, the stock is up 27% since Christmas Eve, and is entering a near-term overbought position. Thus, a near-term pullback is likely in the cards. But, much like other pullbacks in this stock before, the next pullback will simply be a buying opportunity. ### Netflix (NFLX) Source: Vivian D Nguyen via Flickr (Modified) Despite weakness in the stock, the long term bull thesis surrounding streaming giant Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) is only getting stronger every day. The Netflix growth narrative is all about two things: cord cutting and content. So long as consumers cut the chord and pivot to streaming, and so long as Netflix's content is superior to content offered by streaming peers, Netflix's subscriber base will grow. Prices will go up without churn, too, and margins and profits will explode higher. Those two trends are progressing favorably for Netflix. The cord-cutting trend isn't slowing. If anything, it's accelerating. Moreover, Netflix's content isn't getting worse. Again, if anything, it's only getting better, thanks to recent hits like Bird Box and Black Mirror. As such, the two long-term growth trends here remain favorable, meaning that the long-term bull thesis on NFLX stock is only gaining credence and visibility. * Morgan Stanley: 7 Risky Stocks to Sell Now NFLX stock is up a whopping 52% since Christmas Eve. This stock has fundamentally supported upside from here. But it is technically overbought, and needs to cool off and consolidate before taking another leg higher. ### Roku (ROKU) Source: Shutterstock Among the biggest losers during the market sell-off in late 2018 was streaming player maker Roku (NASDAQ:ROKU). But the growth narrative underlying the company only strengthened in late 2018, thus implying huge rebound potential in 2019. Much like Netflix, there are only two trends that matter in the long run with Roku: cord cutting and competition. As stated earlier, the cord cutting trend is only accelerating. That means more streaming subscribers than ever, and more streaming services than ever, too. All those subscribers need a content-neutral centralized aggregation system to curate and access all those streaming services. As such, so long as consumers keep cutting the cord, demand for Roku devices will head higher. On the competition front, Roku has tons of competition. But, the company still commands 40% share in the streaming device market and 25% share in the smart TV market. So long as the company can defend its market leadership position, Roku will continue to convert the lion's share of cord cutters into Roku ecosystem users. ROKU stock is up nearly 50% since Christmas Eve. The stock needs to cool off and consolidate here. But, once that consolidation period is over, this uptrend will resume for the duration of 2019. ### Twilio (TWLO) Source: Web Summit Via Flickr While many other growth stocks remain well off their all-time highs, cloud giant Twilio (NASDAQ:TWLO) is right near its all-time high, and that's a testament to the strength of this company's underlying growth narrative. Over the past several quarters, Twilio has emerged as the uncontested leader in the rapidly growing and potentially huge Communication Platforms-as-a-Service (CPaaS) market. The CPaaS market largely consists of companies that are integrating real-time communication into their services. This market promises to be huge to continuous shifts towards cloud-based communication, personalized customer experience and digital engagement. Twilio is growing its customer base and revenues rapidly in this secular growth market. They also have a 95%-plus retention rate and very high gross margins. Put that all together, and this company has all the ingredients to be a big time winner in a long-term window. * 10 Stocks You Can Set and Forget (Even In This Market) TWLO stock is just below all-time highs today. This resilience is impressive, and it means that the stock hasn't rallied as much as the other stocks in this list over the past two weeks. As such, you don't have any near term overbought conditions, and now could be as good a time as any to load up for the long haul. ### Nvidia (NVDA) Source: Shutterstock Once high-flying chipmaker Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) saw more than half of its value wiped out in late 2018 thanks to near-term inventory, growth, and margin issues. But, in the big picture, those issues are overstated, and NVDA remains one of the best growth stocks in the market. The growth narrative at Nvidia is all about AI and data. Recent numbers suggest there is absolutely zero slowdown in those businesses. All businesses related to AI and data, including the data-center and automated driving businesses, reported record numbers and huge growth last quarter. Instead, all the issues with Nvidia have to do with a pop in cryptocurrency mining demand that created inventory issues which will take time to work through. Nvidia will inevitably work through those issues. Once they do, the narrative will re-focus on this company's long term growth drivers in AI and data. Those drivers have been very strong, are still very strong, and will remain very strong, given secular shifts towards data-driven decision making and automated technologies. So long as those drivers remain strong, NVDA stock will head higher. NVDA stock is up 20% since Christmas Eve. That's a solid rally. But, the stock isn't flashing any overbought signals. As such, it looks like this rally can and will continue in the near term. ### Amazon (AMZN) Source: Shutterstock The world's most valuable company -- Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) -- is also one of the market's most attractive and promising growth stocks. We all know Amazon for its e-commerce and cloud business. Between those two businesses, Amazon has a ton of long term growth potential as e-commerce becomes the global retail norm and cloud becomes the enterprise norm. But, that's just the tip of the iceberg for Amazon. The company also has a $10 billion and rapidly growing digital advertising business with presumably sky-high margins. There's the offline retail business, which started with bookstores, moved to Whole Foods and will eventually include thousands of convenience stores and potentially even Target (NYSE:TGT). There are also potential multi-billion logistics and pharmaceutical businesses in the pipeline. Between all these growth opportunities, it's easy to see that Amazon is still in the early innings of arguably the market's biggest and most exciting growth narrative. * 8 Dividend Stocks With Growth on the Horizon AMZN stock is up 20% since Dec. 24. But, it's also still 20% off recent highs. Thus, while a near term pullback is warranted and healthy, this stock still has plenty of room to rally in a medium to long term window. As of this writing, Luke Lango was long SHOP, TSLA, SQ, PYPL, TTD, NFLX, ROKU, NVDA, AMZN and TGT. ### More From InvestorPlace * 2 Toxic Pot Stocks You Should Avoid * 10 Companies That Could Post Decelerating Profits * 10 A-Rated Stocks the Smart Money Is Piling Into * Mizuho: 7 Long-Term Value Stocks to Buy Now Compare Brokers The post 10 Growth Stocks With the Future Written All Over Them appeared first on InvestorPlace.

    The Key Risks and Rewards to Owning Tesla Stock in 2019

    One thing best describes Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) stock's daily moves in the markets: roller coaster. Tesla stock is soaring one day and falling off the cliff the next. Its 52-week price range has been $244.59 (April 2, 2018) - $ 387.46 (Aug. 7, 2018). Unless TSLA releases very strong fundamental numbers when it reports earnings on Feb. 6, I expect Tesla stock to continue this range-bound trading. Over the past year, the TSLA stock price has been a battleground between two camps: investors and traders. Investors have been wondering whether the company will be able to work through various production issues and margin worries as it becomes a full-fledged car manufacturer. Bulls point out how well TSLA stock has held up since October when all other tech heavyweights have plunged in a free fall. Bears are happy to point out that the level of short-selling in the stock is a reflection of sentiment and fundamental worries. Traders, on the other hand, watch the unpredictable mood swings and Twitter (NASDAQ:TWTR) rants of CEO Elon Musk as they trade Tesla stock from one end of the upper price range of about $285 to the other end at $250. In other words, in 2018, the public relations noise surrounding TSLA has taken over the story of its fundamentals. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips ### TSLA's Fundamental Story Is Improving By the Quarter Recently Tesla has released impressive production and delivery figures for 2018 Q4. The company produced 86,555 vehicles and delivered 90,700, both numbers are 8% higher than the Q3 data. Wall Street also positively noted that Tesla's deliveries in 2018 were almost at the level of total shipments in all previous years combined. * 10 Companies That Could Post Decelerating Profits These strong numbers followed through the growth trend in the Q3 earnings report of October 2018, when Tesla stock investors cheered the 50% increase in vehicle production and a 106% increase in sales -- leading to the highest quarterly profit in the history of the company. TSLA also reported improvements to delivery rates as it delivered twice as many cars in Q3 than it did in Q2. These impressive numbers are mostly thanks to Model 3, whose production is now transforming Tesla into a mass-market car producer. This is a big reality and sentiment change from the start of 2018 when investors had worried about the production numbers regarding its latest vehicle, i.e., Model 3. Based on its strong production numbers, I expect Tesla's profitability to grow in 2019 and beyond, with orders coming not only from North America, but also from China and Europe. ### What Could Derail Tesla's Growth? If 2019 also turns out to be a year when Tesla's CEO loses his focus and displays unpredictable behavior, many analysts and TSLA stock investors may end up throwing in the towel in frustration until the company works through its top management issues. Moreover, if Tesla decides to change its offerings, including vehicle types or prices, on a whim, then the Tesla stock price may take a hit due to potential uncertainty in sales numbers and expected earnings. For example, in early January, Musk announced that the company would discontinue the 75kWh battery pack, a move that translates into steep price increases for both Model S and Model X, the company's two luxury cars. Although this change may end up keeping the Model 3 more affordable and help its sales, analysts are worried about the effect of such abrupt product and pricing decisions. If TSLA does not become cashflow positive within the year, it may find itself in dire straits as it has payments due in the years ahead to settle convertible bonds. In early March, it has to pay out close to $1 billion in cash, where the equity-conversion price is $359.88 per share. In other words, the company wants to see the Tesla stock price above $360, so that more bondholders will decide to convert the bond into stock. Tesla's growth story will also depend on how the company will continue to differentiate itself amid the rising competition from other all-electric vehicles, produced by established car manufacturers globally. For example, Ford (NYSE:F) has recently joined the ranks of companies that are entering this segment to offer a wide range of electric cars in a few years. * 7 Video Game Stocks on Steep Discount Furthermore, if the U.S.-China trade tensions continue well into the year, TSLA sales in China may slump further and hinder the bottom line. The latest Chinese trade data is also worrying many analysts on both sides of the Pacific as they wonder whether China is entering into recession. Finally, if you are an investor looking to buy in to Tesla stock because of Elon Musk's claims that the company will begin production in Shanghai in about a year, I would urge caution for now. Many analysts believe it will be a lot longer before TSLA can actually begin production at the Shanghai Gigafactory. Unless the company resolves the main issue, i.e., the source of funding, it would be overly optimistic to expect big production news out of China. ### The Bottom Line on Tesla Stock I expect TSLA stock's range to stay intact in the near future unless the company reports a robust earnings report in early February. Yet, eventually, fundamental catalysts will drive the Tesla share price higher, and the stock price will break over $400. In the meantime, patient investors who believe in the TSLA story may see any price drip toward the $250 range as an opportunity to get long the stock and ride out the daily volatility. In two to three years, I expect theses investors to be rewarded handsomely. As of this writing, Tezcan Gecgil did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities. ### More From InvestorPlace * 2 Toxic Pot Stocks You Should Avoid * 10 Companies That Could Post Decelerating Profits * 10 A-Rated Stocks the Smart Money Is Piling Into * Mizuho: 7 Long-Term Value Stocks to Buy Now Compare Brokers The post The Key Risks and Rewards to Owning Tesla Stock in 2019 appeared first on InvestorPlace.
