Top 10 Safest Stocks For 2019

Virtually all companies talk about innovation. Only a few, like Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA), back up their claims with substantive results. But lately, TSLA hasn’t looked like the cocksure organization for which they’re renowned. With shares dropping more than 5.5% on Thursday, investors openly wonder: should I buy Tesla stock? Or is going short Tesla the safest action?

Throughout my time covering TSLA, I’ve generally maintained a positive outlook. Thus, I’m not one to short Tesla. Sure, the stock has a reputation for being wild, even compared to other technology firms. Plus, CEO Elon Musk doesn’t do things the conventional way. The man launched his Tesla Roadster into space. And not just any roadster but his personal ride.

But the company’s (and the founder’s) quirks are what endeared me to TSLA stock. In the ultra-competitive automobile market, you need whatever distinctions you can get. At least, that was what proved successful in the past. But recently, many investors consider TSLA’s “my way or the highway” attitude a liability. Thus, the cries to short Tesla.
