When $900 Billion Isn’t Enough

“Wealth flows from energy and ideas.” ~ William Feather

Dear Trader,

Welcome to today’s edition of Wall Street Connected.

It has been a volatile week for markets as while a stimulus relief package worth nearly $900B has been approved by congress, president Trump has threatened to avoid signing it as he feels a stimulus package should be north of one trillion dollars.

Today’s jam-packed economic calendar including new home sales, unemployment claims, personal income and outlays added to today’s premarket uncertainty in markets as traders and investors prepare to enter a new year with a new political administration taking office.

While there is opportunity to profit in volatile markets, oftentimes it’s not as simple as buying bullish positions on relative strength opportunities, such as the iShares MSCI Emerging Markets Exchange Traded Fund (EEM).

For example, Tesla (TSLA), which is ranking #11 on the top searched stocks by financial professionals with $1B+ in assets under management traded 6% lower through yesterday’s trading session, which created volatility for the electric vehicle giant.

This means that through volatility, the profit potential can oftentimes come as a result of shorting a stock, or buying a put option.

This way, you can take advantage of a stock’s move to the downside, which is something many experienced traders and investors are able to do successfully through periods of volatility.

While Tesla did start the week trading through volatility, Tesla’s bulls were back in charge this morning upon

Citigroup stating that Tesla will be Apple’s most direct competitor and cited skepticism as to whether or not Apple could actually produce an electric car, which is something Tesla is known for doing well.

We find Citigroup’s take on Tesla and Apple interesting as demand for electric vehicles has skyrocketed in 2020, and Tesla was recently listed on the S&P 500.

Many financial analysts consider both Tesla and Apple to be two of the best ESG investments of this past decade, and until possibly shifting their current stance, remain bullish on both companies.

What We’re Watching:
