“Old school” folks might be skeptical of listening to financial advice from someone
half their age, but this stock whiz beat out 15,000 experts to claim #1 title.
The carmaker has seen shares rally strongly this year as the company has unveiled electric and hybrid versions of its popular cars, eating into the market share of pure-play EV firms.
Strong earnings have led to shares trading at about 15 times earnings, even after a 114 percent rise in the past year.
Action to take: Investors may like shares here to play the rise of electric vehicles by owning shares of a firm with over a century of history in the automotive market. Shares don’t currently pay a dividend, but it would be the least leveraged way to play shares.
Traders may like the call options, as their low price could result in a potential triple-digit return if the rally in shares continues. The option has plenty of time to play out for those returns.
