≈ The Cheetah is back. ≈

What is the first thing that comes into your mind when you think of Tesla? For me, one thing: a Cheetah.

Last year we’ve published here on Tackle Today a few pieces of content about Elon Musk, Tesla stock, and a few other ones about his polemic tweets. When it comes to Elon Tesla Musk, there is no shortage of content.

Precisely on July 17th, 2018, we’ve compared the personality of two entirely different stocks: Tesla and Coca-Cola. Each one would, in turn, be represented by an animal with a similar personality. Here’s an excerpt of that email:

Coke’s BofD want to sell their dark, sweet, sparkling, bubbly beverage day in day out. They’re looking for predictable results. Cashflowing on carbon dioxide, caffeine, and sugar for centuries. Animal: Dog.

Now read Elon Musk’s face and words. The guy is disruptive, he wants to break paradigms, he’s a troublemaker. That’s just his nature and TSLA mirrors him. Unpredictable, all over the place, news-driven wild beast. Animal: Cheetah.

Desiring a predictable stream of cashflow on TSLA will be like petting a Cheetah. You’ve got to be prepared to do it.

Apparently, nothing has changed ever since, except that while the broad market is running North, Tesla is running South and its usual helter-skelter behavior seems to be tamed now.

You voted you got it: Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) is the Stock of the Week on Tackle’s Instagram.

Tales of a Technician

A Real Estate Would You Rather

I’ve lived in my current home for eleven years. I bought it when I was 24 just after getting married. It had plenty of room to start a family, but after a bull market in babies, we’re bursting at the seams. The lack of a yard with three rambunctious boys is particularly troublesome. So we finally decided to build a bigger house on a larger lot. One of the decisions facing me is how much money I want to put down on the new place. And this is where my analytical mind takes over. I have two choices…
