Tesla Sinks 50% From November Record High as Troubles Pile Up

(Bloomberg) — Tesla Inc. shares tumbled about 50% from their all-time high, amid a broader selloff in the US stock market that has hit growth and technology companies especially hard.

Tesla Sinks 50% From November Record High as Troubles Pile Up

Stocks Upended by Inflation Survey’s Sobering View: Markets Wrap

The electric vehicle-maker’s shares closed down 7.6% to $204.99 on Friday, taking its market capitalization to $642 billion. The decline has now sliced in half the stock’s Nov. 4 record closing high of $409.97.

The plunge comes amid a wider meltdown in the markets, as the specter of an economic slowdown rattles investors already bracing for the impact of rising inflation and higher interest rates. Riskier growth stocks with rich valuations have borne the brunt of the selloff.

Tesla’s own list of woes are long: Vehicle delivery in the third quarter took a hit due to logistical troubles, and some analysts warned that the climbing prices of the company’s cars may also weigh on demand at some point. On top of that, Tesla’s factory in Shanghai has faced disruptions due to Covid-19 lockdowns in the city. The company has also dealt with supply shortages and a surge in raw material costs, as has almost every other automaker around the globe.

Chief Executive Elon Musk’s highly public attempt to first buy Twitter Inc., then to walk away from the deal and buy it again, has also been a drag on the stock, due to concerns that the company’s leader is spreading himself too thin between several challenging ventures.

Alex Jones faces long odds hiding assets after $1 billion Sandy Hook verdict, experts say

Right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has vowed to fight a nearly $1 billion defamation verdict against him, but experts say neither bankruptcy nor an appeal of a Connecticut jury’s findings on Wednesday are likely to salvage his personal fortune and media empire. A jury in Waterbury, Connecticut, state court found Jones and the parent company of his Infowars website must pay $965 million to numerous families of the 20 children and six staff members slain at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, in 2012 for claiming they were actors who faked the tragedy as part of a government plot. The verdict could grow substantially when a judge decides how much to award in punitive damages next month.

While the bank has stated it is not as confident the bottom is quite so close, it’s not hard to see why investors feel the time is right to lean into equities.

Last month, the Federal Reserve implemented its fifth straight interest rate hike this year, and its third consecutive hike at 75 basis points, bringing its key funds rate up to the 3% to 3.25% range. The move showed that the central bank is deadly serious about taking on the stubbornly high inflation that has been plaguing the economy since the middle of 2021. The Fed’s turn toward an aggressive anti-inflationary policy may not be hard enough, however, as the September data, released this morni
