Tesla Motors Inc (TSLA) Versus the Old Guard

Comparing Them All

The only real thing that these three companies have in common is that they produce and sell vehicles around the world. They begin to differ in how they get the job done.

Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) obviously has its focus entirely on electric, which for me is a bet on the future. Ford and GM were a little slower to the game, but they’re both getting in there with electric based vehicles of their own.

For me, the best company of the bunch is General Motors Company (NYSE:GM). They have some incredible brands, growing sales, and a lot less debt than Ford. If you don’t mind the debt, Ford is a buy too.

Finally, Tesla Motors for me is a buy, just not at current levels. The stock has been shaky over the last few months, and I think that’s going to continue. Just wait for a pullback before getting in on this company. Once you’re in, it’s a long term holder.
