Tesla is on a roll.
Shares of the electric car maker rallied to a new high Tuesday, just days before the company is set to report its first profit ever.
The Model S is a full-size, four-door luxury sports sedan. While it was unveiled in 2009, it wasn't available until last year.
Tesla has sold roughly 7,000 Model S cars since then.
Investors may also be liking the latest driver-friendly warranty being offered by Tesla. In a bid to draw in even more buyers, the automaker is offering a 'no fault' warranty for its Model S batteries.
And it's come up with new financing options for the Model S to make it even easier (and cheaper) to buy the plug-in vehicle.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk loves to take to Twitter to make announcements and engage with consumers. @elonmusk has more than 191,000 followers.
He's not alone. StockTwits traders took to the airwaves to cheer Tesla on.
That's a good point. There are probably a bunch of naysayers out there who now wish they had placed big bets on the stock rising instead of falling.
I can't rightly answer that. But I can say it seems to have a bit more room on the upside. Though, many StockTwits traders are calling out the shorts for "squeezing" the stock at this level. That may very well be playing into today's pop since there isn't any definitive news.
But I also think there are those who want to get in before the earnings release.
That's really bullish!
Bet that owner wishes those new financing options were around when they bought it
What a difference a month makes.
Redbox parent Coinstar (CSTR) was being dragged through the mud last month after it issued a much weaker-than-expected outlook for the first quarter.
But guess what? Redbox really came through. Coinstar reported earnings per share that trumped forecasts by a wide margin.
Revenue fell short of forecasts and Coinstar's operating margin declined,but Redbox gained market share and its revenue rose 1% as the company added new MORECatherine Tymkiw - Apr 26, 2013 11:39 AM ET
Safeway's (SWY) stock looks unsafe at any speed today. It's down more than 15% after the company reported quarterly results.
Supermarkets are notoriously challenging businesses. Take Whole Foods (WFM) out of the equation and nearly every grocery store struggles to generate healthy profit margins. Competition is tight within the industry, and then there's Wal-Mart (WMT). The big box retailer wants to eat every supermarket's lunch, dinner and breakfast.
Safeway's sales dipped during the latest quarter MOREMaureen Farrell - Apr 25, 2013 2:38 PM ET
Instead of using its own cash hoard to reward shareholders, Apple plans to go into debt for the first time ever.
Apple CEO Tim Cook said late Tuesday that the company will double the amount it returns to shareholders through share buybacks and dividends by 2015, but will "access the debt market" to pay for it.
Borrowing money seems odd for a company like Apple (AAPL), which has $144 billion in cash. But more than MOREHibah Yousuf - Apr 24, 2013 2:47 PM ET
Bed Bath & Beyond got a boost Thursday after the home goods retailer reported stronger-than-expected revenue.

Some of the retreat could be due to MORECatherine Tymkiw - Apr 11, 2013 2:32 PM ET
Anyone can reinvent themselves as the saying goes. While Cisco has been doing just that, some think it's gotten a little too ambitious.
FBR Capital Markets analyst Scott Thompson downgraded the stock Thursday to underperform and slashed his price target to $17 from $22.
"We expect it may take longer than management expects to create organic software growth that is able to offset declining core routing and switching revenues," said Thompson in his MORECatherine Tymkiw - Mar 21, 2013 1:49 PM ET

According to the latest data from the Investment Company Institute, investors pulled $1.13 billion from U.S. stock mutual funds during the week ended Feb. 27. That's the first time investors took money out of stocks this year, and it came just days before the Dow hit a record high.

Yelp (YELP) is getting bad reviews from investors Thursday after reporting a wider quarterly loss.
The company, , which provides user-generated reviews of local businesses, has been making a big push to expand into other countries but that costs money. Sales and marketing expenses jumped 59% in the latest quarter.
That's a tough pill for investors to swallow when they're looking for a profit.
Shares are down 5% today and have slid some MORECatherine Tymkiw - Feb 7, 2013 1:19 PM ET
Individual investors continue dip back into U.S. stocks as the Dow and S&P 500 get closer to new record highs, but the pace has slowed.

Altogether, investors have plowed more than $16 billion into the market during MOREHibah Yousuf - Jan 31, 2013 11:25 AM ET
