Tesla shares rise on Citi upgrade and possible new factory in Asia (3 min read)

Tesla shares rose nearly 8% after hitting a new 52-week low just a day earlier. The rebound was led by the stock upgrade from Citi and potentially a new factory being built in South Korea. Shares of Tesla have lost half of its value this year from the market sell-off and the massive stock sales by Elon Musk to finance the Twitter deal. Citi changed the stock rating to neutral based on the belief that the pullback has balanced out the near-term risk/reward and will be bullish when Tesla fulfills its full self-driving capability.

The spread on the 2-year and 10-year treasury have edged deeper into the negatives and recently reached a new four-decade low. Historically when the yield curves are inverted, it usually indicates a recession is coming. However, it’s possibly different this time as the latest labor market and consumer spending data still point towards growth. The November and December economic numbers will be critical on whether this growth is sustainable.

Is the growth of passive investing messing with the markets? (6 min read)

Passive investing has grown rapidly in the last decade but many criticize that the growth of it is starting to distort market prices. While passive funds do affect market prices to an extent, the effect is not significant. Passive funds are only about 16% of the US stock market and less than 5% of the trading volume on any given day.
