Tesla stock: 7 things investors can expect on Battery Day

Tesla’s highly anticipated Battery Day, which has faced several delays since its reveal a year ago, is finally taking place at 16:30 ET on Monday 21 September 2020. CEO Elon Musk has promised that the event will be ‘big’, with ‘mind blowing’ battery technology to be unveiled.

Tesla’s highly anticipated Battery Day, which has faced several delays since its reveal a year ago, is finally taking place at 16:30 ET on Monday 21 September 2020.

CEO Elon Musk has promised that the event will be ‘big’, with ‘mind blowing’ battery technology to be unveiled.

Below, we look at what analysts say investors can expect during the inaugural show-and-tell.

Battery Day: What are analysts saying?

Morgan Stanley analysts, who rated the Tesla stock ‘equal weight’ alongside a target price of $272 a share – representing a downside of 38.5% from 18 September 2020’s closing price of $442, said their main expectations include:

1. Capacity

‘We are prepared for Tesla to target Terawatt scale battery capacity plans. Currently, we forecast Tesla to produce 439 GwH of batteries for their in-house production and 3rd party supply (combined) by 2030, accounting for just over a 26% share of the global EV battery market. Will Tesla target 1TwH by 2035?’

2. Higher battery manufacturing/production efficiency

‘With Maxwell, there would be theoretically a 16x production capacity increase by skipping the wet toxic chemicals to create the cathode, which then has to be dried and baked-off and needs a lot of floor space and ovens to meet that process.’

3. A doubling of energy density

‘Battery density using the DBE system shows greater than 300 Wh/kg with a path to over 500 Wh/kg. By comparison, Tesla’s most advanced (2170) battery today is around 247 Wh/kg.’

The analysts further noted that this implies a potential 20% expansion of current highest density, adding that this could lead to vehicles with significantly more range – and could potentially push Tesla Model 3 to about 400 miles per charge.

4. Improved battery life

‘Battery life also shows improved durability with almost 2x improvement as Elon Musk recently stated “…the car battery pack is around 3-to-5,000 miles, but the newly designed pack that will go into production for next year is design[ed] explicitly for a million miles of operation with minimum maintenance…’’

5. Goodbye Cobalt?

‘Tesla has been spending a great deal of effort on researching new chemistries themselves to reduce and remove cobalt from the mix.’

6. Lower batter cell cost

‘The prevailing view is that battery cell cost can decline at a compound rate of 6% to 7% from just over a $100/KwH level today. Could Tesla communicate plans to potentially double this rate of deflation or to target $50/KwH or less by mid or latter this decade?’

7. Tesla could emerge as a full-stack battery competitor

‘Overall, the market appears to be leaning towards Tesla being a faster moving partner with scale that expands the market for all, and investors are likely looking to reengage on existing battery makers post-battery day.’

Tesla is ‘trading at twice of its worth’, says investor

Meanwhile, Ross Gerber, President and CEO of Gerber Kawasaki Wealth and Investment Management, told IG that he is ‘expecting some big breakthroughs’ from the Tesla stock around Battery Day.

The self-proclaimed ‘long-term Tesla investor’ said that while Tesla is a ‘high risk investment’, it is now a ‘highly valued higher risk investment’.

When asked why the stock is so divisive between bulls and bears, Gerber said that’s because ‘Tesla is disrupting the energy and auto industry, and many of the analysts and people on Wall Street have been cosy with energy and autos for their entire careers’.

‘And these are huge trillion dollar industries that are being disrupted and basically destroyed by Tesla. So a lot of what you are seeing is pushback from the forces who don’t want to see Tesla be successful,’ he added.

Nevertheless, Gerber admitted that Tesla is now ‘trading at about twice of what I think it’s worth’.

‘Now, it might be warranted but we’re in a bubble and we’re at the beginning stages of this bubble. And once they start to pull some of this back, the bubble bursts very quickly. So I caution tech investors when buying high priced technology stocks,’ he said.

School4Trading Review – How to Spot Possible Forex Broker Fraud

School4Trading Review – How to Spot Possible Forex Broker Fraud

In this School4trading Review, we will look at the features of the software, as well as the customer support. First, let us look at the interface. The design is simple and easy to navigate. It also provides a chatbot, which helps you to communicate with the broker. The customer service is warm and inviting, which is a hallmark of a good broker. In contrast, a fraudulent broker will use cold and impersonal customer support to lure people in.

Another problem with the system is that the login process is not always intuitive. You may have to retype your password several times to get in. Then, you may experience difficulties withdrawing your funds or accessing your account. In such cases, you might have to wait for days or even weeks before you can withdraw the money you’ve invested. This is not a good sign. It’s better to choose a different trading platform altogether.

If you’re having trouble logging in, you should also check the legitimacy of the broker. Whether the broker is licensed by a reliable regulatory body or closed down, you’ll want to be sure it’s legitimate. If the broker isn’t licensed by the right body, don’t trust him. You shouldn’t waste your time with an inexperienced company. This will only cause you problems in the long run.

The next factor that should be checked is the licensing. A legitimate broker will have a license from a high regulatory body. However, a broker without a license will be unreliable. Moreover, a reliable regulator will take away the license of a scam broker. As a result, a trustworthy School4Broker/Profittrade review should mention fees, account rules, and contract terms. A scam broker will be unable to operate legally.

Secondly, look for warning signs. The broker should be licensed and regulated by a reliable regulatory body. It should be regulated by a high level. If it doesn’t, it’s a scam. Lastly, it should have a website that lets you easily access your account. Moreover, you should not hesitate to check the contact information. If you find any information that seems suspicious, you should reconsider using the broker.

In summary, Forex trading isn’t easy, but it doesn’t have to be complicated. It’s not as difficult as it seems if you’ve heard about the program. You’ll learn everything about the basics and how to become a professional. But if you’re still unsure about whether this program is right for you, don’t hesitate to contact a school4trading’s website.

The most important thing to remember when it comes to Forex trading is that it’s not easy. While it’s important to have a strong background in trading, there are a number of factors that can affect your success. Having a proper plan is vital in the long run, because you will be trading with real money. And, the platform should be reliable. Otherwise, you’ll end up losing a lot of money.

As we’ve mentioned, Forex is not easy. Investing isn’t something you can do in the comfort of your own home. You need a proven system. There are no free trials, so you’ll have to find a way to do it yourself. This isn’t a scam, and it’s a great way to make money without any help. A Forex system can help you learn the intricacies of the market.

Although the process of learning Forex isn’t an easy one, it’s certainly not impossible. Fortunately, there are many people who are willing to take the time to learn how to trade. But, even the most experienced trader needs to be aware of the risks of the market. While Forex trading isn’t easy, it can be done with the right knowledge. The software’s user-friendly interface is key.

Don’t Count On JPY Correction; Staying Long GBP/JPY

The path of the potential pace of the JPY decline may still be underestimated by markets, which continue trading the JPY long.

While the 10% USDJPY advance from September lows looks impressive from a momentum point of view, it may no thave been driven by Japan’s institutional investors reducing their hedging ratios or Japan’s household sector reestablishing carry trades.

Instead, investors seemed to have been caught on the wrong foot, concerned about a sudden decline of risk appetite or the incoming US administration being focused on trade issues and not on spending. Spending requires funding and indeed the President-elect Trump’s team appears to be focused on funding. Here are a few examples: Reducing corporate taxation may pave the way for US corporates repatriating some of their USD2.6trn accumulated foreign profits. Cutting bank regulation could increase the risk-absorbing capacity within bank balance sheets. Hence, funding conditions – including for the sovereign – might generally ease. De-regulating the oil sector would help the trade balance, slowing the anticipated increase in the US current account deficit. The US current account deficit presently runs at 2.6% of GDP, which is below worrisome levels. Should the incoming government push for early trade restrictions, reaction (including Asian sovereigns reducing their holdings) could increase US funding costs, which runs against the interest of the Trump team.

Instead of counting on risk aversion to stop the JPY depreciation, we expect nominal yield differentials and the Fed moderately hiking rates to unleash capital outflows from Japan.The yield differential argumenthas become more compelling with the BoJ turning into yield curve managers. Via this policy move, rising inflation rates push JPY real rates and yields lower, which will weaken the JPY. Exhibit 12 shows how much Japan’s labor market conditions have tightened. A minor surge in corporate profitability may now be sufficient, pushing Japan wages up and implicity real yields lower.

JPY dynamics are diametrical to last year . Last year, the JGB’s “exhausted”yield curve left the BoJ without a tool to push real yields low enough to adequately address the weakened nominal GDP outlook. JPY remained artificially high at a time when the US opted for sharply lower real yields. USDJPY had to decline, triggering JPY bullish secondround effects via JPY-based financial institutions increasing their FX hedge ratios and Japan’s retail sector cutting its carry trade exposures. Now the opposite seems to be happening. The managed JGB curve suggests rising inflation expectations are driving Japan’s real yield lower. The Fed reluctantly hiking rates may keep risk appetite supported but increase USD hedging costs.Financial institutions reducinghedge ratios and Japan’s household sector piling back into the carry trade could provide secondround JPY weakening effects

Mexico raises interest rates, cites Trump as risk

The head of Mexico’s central bank says U.S. Republican candidate Donald Trump represents a “hurricane” sized threat to Mexico.

Banco de Mexico Gov. Agustin Carstens told the Radio Formula network Friday that a Trump presidency “would be a hurricane and a particularly intense one if he fulfills what he has been saying in his campaign.”

Trump has proposed building a wall along the border and re-negotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Mexico’s central bank raised its prime lending rate by half a percent to 4.75 percent Thursday, citing “nervousness surrounding the possible consequences of the U.S. elections, whose implications for Mexico could be particularly significant.”

Mexico’s peso had lost about 6 percent in value against the dollar since mid-August. It recovered slightly after the rate hike
