Why Tesla Has Risen 4% TodayTeslaTesla’s (TSLA) stock performance has been mixed this month. As of January 14, the US electric carmaker’s stock had risen 0.5% this month, while the S&P 500 (SPY) and the NASDAQ Composite (QQQ) had risen 3.0%
Why Fiat Chrysler Stock Has Risen More than 4% Today ## Fiat Chrysler stock Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCAU) stock was trading on a strong positive note in the pre-market session on January 4. At 9:03 AM EST, the stock rose 4.3% from the closing price on January 3. In the previous session, Fiat Chrysler fell 1.5%, while other auto stocks (IYK) including Ford (F), General Motors (GM), and Toyota (TM) fell 1.5%, 4.1%, and 1.45, respectively. The broader market sell-off pressurized auto stocks on January 3. Let’s find out what could be moving Fiat Chrysler stock up today. ## Solid December sales On January 3, Fiat Chrysler released its December US sales data just like Ford and Toyota. However, Fiat Chrysler was the only automaker that reported solid sales gains. The company’s December US sales rose 14% YoY (year-over-year) to 196,520 units. Ford and Toyota’s December US sales fell 8.8% and 0.9% YoY. December was the fourth consecutive month that Ford’s sales fell in its home market. In contrast, Fiat Chrysler’s US sales gained for the eighth consecutive month in December. In December, Fiat Chrysler’s key brands including Jeep, Ram, and Dodge registered 10%, 37%, and 17% YoY sales gains, respectively. In the same month, Fiat Chrysler’s relatively less popular vehicle brands including Chrysler and Fiat saw their sales fall 28% and 44% in December, respectively. After weakness on January 3, mainly due to the broader market sell-off, investors might be ready to digest Fiat Chrysler’s solid fourth-quarter sales, which could be driving its stock up today.
Ford Motor Company (F), the second largest US automaker, released its US sales figures for December 2018 yesterday. December 2018 was the fourth consecutive month that Ford’s F-Series sales continued to fall. Last month, Ford’s F-Series sales fell by 1.8% YoY to 87,772 units.

It was the second consecutive quarter that GM reported a decline in its home market sales. In the third quarter of 2018, the company’s US sales fell sharply by 11.1% YoY. Let’s take a look at some more details.
American electric carmaker Tesla (TSLA) managed to end 2018 on a positive note with the help of solid gains in the fourth quarter. The company yielded a 6.95% return in 2018, including a 25.7% rise in the fourth quarter. In comparison, automakers General Motors (GM), Ford Motor Company (F), and Toyota Motor (TM) ended the fourth quarter with falls of 0.7%, 17.3%, and 6.7%, respectively.
Tesla (TSLA) has been one of the handful of positive-return-yielding stocks in the fourth quarter so far. As of December 28, TSLA was trading with handsome 26.1% quarter-to-date gains against 14.7% and 18.2% losses in the S&P 500 benchmark and the NASDAQ Composite Index (QQQ)(VTI). Tesla’s Chinese competitor NIO (NIO) has lost about 7.3% in the fourth quarter so far.
The second-largest American auto company, Ford (F), has been having trouble reviving its overall vehicle sales in its home market for the last few years. An ongoing negative trend in US passenger car demand could help Ford justify its falling car sales. However, consistent year-over-year weakness in its F-series sales could be disastrous for the company.
