I expect TSLA stock to be volatile as it builds its manufacturing capabilities and expands in other products. What I am buying here is the Tesla and Ellon Musk story and not the company fundamentals. TSLA is the leader In the electric vehicles market and all aggressive portfolios will probably buy TSLA just to follow the futures trend.
