Tesla stock

Tesla stock jumped 8.1% to 121.82 after bouncing 3.3% on Wednesday. TSLA stock is still down slightly for the week and up 37% in December. After this sell-off, Tesla stock was set to rebound, but it remained well below key levels.

Tesla Model Y tax credits

Tesla’s bull case for 2023 relies heavily on new US tax credits of up to $7,500 under the inflation-lowering law that fuel high-margin domestic sales, offsetting weaker demand and prices in China and possibly Europe.

On Thursday, the Treasury Department listed vehicles that qualify for US motor vehicle credits. Most Model Y versions will have a maximum of $55,000 to receive EV credits, versus $80,000 for SUVs, vans and vans.

But seven-seat Model Y cars, which weren’t big sellers, would qualify up to $80,000.

The current base Model Y in the US starts at $65,990, and Tesla will need to lower the price, possibly by reintroducing the lower-range Model Y SR+, to get tax credits—unless it’s a seven-seat variant.

But, there is another twist! The Treasury also said that electric vehicles leased by consumers could qualify for commercial electric vehicle tax credits. This makes electric vehicles assembled outside North America eligible, including the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6. Foreign automakers and US allies in Europe and Asia adamantly opposed assembly requirements in North America. But the rental rules also seem to allow any electric vehicle to qualify at any price, with no income restrictions, either.

It will be interesting to see what Tesla and other automakers do in terms of variants and pricing to maximize the benefits of the new tax breaks.

But investors seem happy with the overall picture.

Market analysis

The stock market experienced a strong rebound after Wednesday’s sell-off. After retreating since the intraday high on Dec. 13, the major indices were definitely “due” for a bounce.

The question is whether they will follow through in the coming days and weeks.

The market moved towards a correction on Wednesday as the Dow lowered its 50-day moving average and put the Nasdaq at a closing low in two years.

So Thursday was only the first day of a fresh bullish attempt in the market. It will take a lot more than that to feel more confident.

The Dow Jones is back above the 50-day line, but it is still below the 21-day line.

The S&P 500 is still below 50 days, with more resistance at the 200-day line and the December highs.

While Tesla, Apple and several battered chip and software names led Thursday’s rebound, some leading stocks gave buy signals or moved into a position, such as MEDP stock.


It’s time to market with IBD’s ETF Market Strategy


What are you doing now

It’s tempting to get back into the market when the indices are rising sharply and there’s a sea of ​​green among the leading and notable stocks.

But since the bear market low on Oct. 13, the buy and breakout signals have largely faded.

Some sectors, including industrial, metals, and medical, have held up better in recent weeks, so it’s easier to justify nibbling in these areas, either with specific stocks or sector-specific ETFs. But make any exposure small and be quick to take profits and cut losses.

Conclusion: This is a market correction. Don’t act according to the bull market rules, especially the 2020 crazy bull rules.

Invest as if you were driving on an icy and windy road and not on an open highway. Proceed carefully, or wait on the side of the road.

It’s more time to plan your trip versus adventure. Work on watchlists. A number of stocks from a variety of sectors are showing strength.
