  • Tesla may be a bubble ... but nobody cares

    Tesla shares did something on Friday that they don't often do. They fell.

    The stock was down nearly 3% in late morning trading even though Tesla (TSLA) announced that it was boosting the size of its secondary offering. Earlier this week, the electric car maker said that proceeds from this stock sale would be used to pay back the terms of a loan from the Department of Energy.

    Still, it's understandable why MORE

  • SolarCity surges to new high

    Talk about a warm-up.

    Investors can't seem to get enough of companies that harness the sun's power. Shares of SolarCity (SCTY) soared to an all-time high of $31.89 on Monday.

    The company has only been public for five months and shares have nearly quadrupled from their $8 IPO price back in December.

  • Investors electrified by Tesla

    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.

    Tesla (TSLA) offered up a preview of that report earlier this month, saying sales of its all-electric Model S were exceeding expectations.

    The Model S is a full-size, four-door luxury sports sedan. While it was unveiled in 2009, it wasn't available until last MORE

  • Can anything stop Tesla?

    Tesla's Model S is electric. So is Tesla's stock.

    The opinions expressed in this commentary are solely those of Paul R. La Monica. Other than Time Warner, the parent of CNNMoney, Abbott Laboratories and AbbVie, La Monica does not own positions in any individual stocks.

    Tesla may be the Apple of the auto business. By that, I mean it's a company that's disrupting an entire industry ... not that it's MORE

  • Tesla shares get a jolt

    Talk about electrified.

    Shares of electric car maker Tesla spiked 6% Tuesday, nearly hitting a new high, on heavy trading volume.

    Tesla generated a lot of buzz last month after CEO Elon Musk tweeted about a game changing announcement.

    Really exciting @teslamotors announcement coming on Thursday. Am going to put my money where my mouth is in v major way.

  • SEC: OK to use Twitter, Facebook for announcements

    Netflix CEO Reed Hastings caused a stir last year after he revealed that Netflix's monthly online viewing had exceeded one billion hours on his Facebook page instead of a press release or public filing. That raised concerns about whether social media posts were in compliance with the Securities and Exchange Commission's Regulation Fair Disclosure (Regulation FD) rules.

    But following an investigation prompted by Hastings' post, the SEC has decided it's MORE

  • Tesla stock dips on poor Model S review

    The idea of a driving an electric car has always intrigued me, but after reading a New York Times review of the Tesla (TSLA) Model S on I-95, it sounds like a total nightmare.

    According to the writer, the battery on the Model S drained much quicker than promised in cold weather during a recent trip up and down the East Coast. With only a few charging stations in the Northeast, the writer was forced MORE

  • SolarCity IPO shines

    SolarCity (SCTY) is shining on its first day of trading.

    In its debut on Nasdaq (NDAQ) Friday, SolarCity closed 47% above its $8-a-share initial public offering price.

    To get that pop, SolarCity was forced to scale back its expectations. The company had originally tried to price its offering between $13 and $15, which would have given it a valuation close to $1 billion, and raised $141 million.

    Even though the company upped MORE

  • Tesla stock charges higher

    It's electric! Tesla shares rose Monday on better-than-expected sales of the Model S. But some investors aren't convinced Tesla is a great long-term bet.

    It's been a good couple of days for Elon Musk and his electric car company Tesla. Last week, Automobile Magazine named the company's Model S as its "car of the year." On Monday morning, Tesla followed up that bit of good news with financial results MORE
