The vehicle has been much anticipated — not so much for any "Wow!" factor (crossovers are kind of a boring segm...


Tesla is having another chaotic year — these are the biggest challenges Tesla has faced so far in 2019 (TSLA)

This year presented an opportunity for Tesla to build on last year's positive developments and move away from the chaos that characterized 2018. But so far, little has changed in 2019. Even celebratory announcements, like the introduction of the $35,000 version of the Model 3 sedan and the unveiling of the Model Y SUV, have been accompanied by concerns about their implications. If the first three months of 2019 are any indication, Tesla is set for another eventful, turbulent year. In 2018, th...

A former Tesla investor explains why he thinks Elon Musk is the wrong person to lead the company, why he dumped the stock, and what he’s now buying instead (TSLA)

Tesla's Feb. 28 announcement that it will close all physical stores was so unexpected that it prompted one registered investment advisor to dump its entire stake in the company.  Tesla has since reversed its decision, but Alex Chalekian — the CEO of Lake Avenue Financial — still feels it's not in the best interests of his clients to hold the company's shares.  In an interview with Business Insider, he outlined the issues he has with Tesla and Elon Musk, and where his firm is investing instead....

U.S. stock indexes closed mostly lower Tuesday after a late-afternoon splash of selling erased early gains, ending a weeklong rally. Banks accounted for much of the decline, along with utilities and industrial companies. Those losses offset gains in health care, technology and consumer products stocks.

Tesla has new rival in quest to make solar rooftops happen

Elon Musk recently declared 2019 as the “year of the solar roof.” Tesla’s chief executive officer may be right — but not in the way he’s expecting.

One of the largest roofing companies in the world has begun offering its own version of a solar roof — essentially panels laid right up against the top of a house and surrounded by shingles...

SEC rebukes Elon Musk, says his tweet about Tesla vehicle production was a 'blatant violation' of court settlement (TSLA)

The Securities and Exchange Commission says a tweet Elon Musk sent in February claiming that Tesla would produce 500,000 vehicles in 2019 was a "blatant violation" of a court settlement between himself, Tesla, and the agency.
