Why Tesla Motors Is the Wrong Stock to Short (DailyFinance)
New York University finance professor Aswath Damodaran has done his math. By his estimates, Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) is worth $67.12 per share — far below its market price around $168. This is great news for investors shorting the stock, right? Not necessarily. The stock may be wildly overvalued by his calculations, but he has no plan to short the stock. …It’s intriguing that Damodaran, often referred to as the “valuation expert,” doesn’t feel compelled to short Tesla. After all, he thinks shares are trading about 2.5 times higher than they should be. Even so, two times in his latest blog post on Tesla he expressed that he would not short Tesla.
