Charlie Keough | Tuesday, 25th May, 2021 | More on: TSLA The Tesla share price has dipped. Should I buy now? See all posts by Charlie Keough Get the full details on this £5 stock now – while your report is free. Since hitting an all-time high of $900 back in January, the Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) share price has fallen to just over $600, although they were under $200 a year ago. With CEO Elon Musk consistently making headlines, I’m looking at whether I see potential in Tesla as a long-term pick for my own portfolio.Uncertain times aheadThe main issue I see for Tesla in the future is competition. The best known competitor is NIO (whose potential I wrote about earlier this month). And I believe the Chinese powerhouse has the ability to seriously rock Musk’s boat. On top of this, many established carmakers are diversifying into the world of electric vehicles (EV), driven by consumer trends and looming regulations that will force more people to choose EVs. For example, Ford recently stated that by 2026 all cars sold in Europe will be ‘zero-emissions capable’, and pure electric by 2030. The competition these will provide could have significant effects on the Tesla share price.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Also, after a strong start to 2021, the current tech sell-off (explained here by my fellow Fool Dylan Hood) may mean problems ahead for the business. With investor confidence in tech stocks continuing to fall, the Tesla share price may follow suit.Its recent venture into the world of cryptocurrency has also caused instability too. After backing Bitcoin as payment for its cars, Elon Musk recently tweeted that the firm would be suspending payment via Bitcoin – an issue that caused massive drops in the share price.The bigger picture for the Tesla share priceWith that said, I can’t ignore the positive news we’ve heard about the firm over the past year. The Tesla share price is up around 275% year-to-date – an increase that an investor like me can’t ignore.Recent Q1 results provided a boost for the company. Total deliveries for the period rose to 184,800 – a 109% increase from Q1 last year. This is an encouraging trend for Tesla as demand continues to rise.I can’t ignore the long-term potential this stock provides either. That $900 share price in January shows the Tesla share price has room for growth in the future. So I have to ask myself whether now is a good time to buy or could I dare to miss out on a stock whose growth trajectory might make it another Apple?My verdictIt’s no secret that the EV market is growing and will continue to expand over the coming years. This provides me with real optimism for the future Tesla share price. With this said, the expansion of the sector will naturally lead to more competition. As such, I think the growing competition could have too big an effect on the Tesla share price in times to come.If Tesla can adapt to the expanding market, I do see long-term opportunities. However, the short-term volatility provided by the tech sell-off and potential Bitcoin saga both mean that I am opting against buying Tesla at this current moment.

Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. National Make a Will Month begins tomorrow and runs for the whole of July. Run by solicitor’s in-home Will writing company Sovereign Will & Probate, the campaign aims to raise awareness of the benefits of making a Will.Vince Cable, Shadow Chancellor for the Liberal Democrats, has added his support to the campaign. He said: “Making a will is a very positive step, but one which many people find difficult to take. As a result, large numbers of people die without a Will every year, leaving problems for their families and exposing their estate to the ravages of of intestacy and inheritance tax. I am delighted to see that the benefits of making a Will are being promoted during Make a Will Month.”Chris Mole, Labour Member of Parliament for Ipswich, and Simon Burns, Conservative MP for West Chelmsford, are also both backing the campaign.Sovereign established the campaign last year as the National Will Week but have expanded it this year.Nick Plumb, Operations Director at Sovereign, explained the rationale behind the campaign. “It is a sad fact”, he said, “that over two thirds of the UK population do not have a valid Will. This means that every year thousands of people die intestate, leaving a legacy of confusion, family upsets, and financial difficulties for their families. We feel that Make a Will Month will make more people aware of the benefits of making a Will and encourage them to address this important task.”Sovereign report that the inconvenience of taking time off work to drive into town during business hours to see a Solicitor is one of the biggest factors why so many people have not made a Will.Plumb wants to change the way Wills are made in the UK. “We can buy home improvements, carpets, and life insurance in the comfort and privacy of our own homes at our convenience, so why not make a Will that way too?” he argues.“Through National Make a Will Month… we want people to realise that they can actually make a Will in the comfort and privacy of their own home at a time to suit their family or work commitments”, he added.During National Make a Will Month Sovereign are offering all its Wills at half price.www.sovwills.co.uk Howard Lake | 30 June 2008 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis

February’s increase marked 36 consecutive months of year-over-year increases in home prices, including distressed sales.CoreLogic Chief Economist Frank Nothaft said home price growth has been stabilizing since the second half of 2014 due to the dwindling supply of affordable housing. Anand Nallathanti, President and CEO of CoreLogic, said the recent home price appreciation is the “hottest” the housing market has experienced prior to spring in nine years – since before the recession.”Assuming a benign interest rate environment and continued strong consumer confidence, we expect home prices to rise by an additional 5 percent over the next 12 months,” Nallathanti said.Excluding distressed sales, home prices increased by 5.8 percent year-over-year and 1.5 percent month-over-month in February, according to CoreLogic. The total number of short sales appears to be on the decline, according to data released by Black Knight Financial Services on Monday. Short sales declined by 45 percent year-over-year in 2014, and REO transactions decreased by 16 percent. The average short sale discount in 2014 was 23 percent, according to Black Knight, meaning that properties in short sales sold for 77 cents on the dollar compared to traditional market sales. The peak for short sale discounts was reached in July 2013, at 25.3 percent, according to Black Knight.For the short term, CoreLogic predicted that home prices, including distressed sales, would appreciate by 0.6 percent from February to March and by 5.1 percent (plus or minus 2 percent) year-over-year from February 2015 to February 2016. Excluding distressed sales, home prices are expected to increase by 0.5 percent month-over-month from February to March and by 4.8 percent (plus or minus 2 percent) year-over-year from February 2015 to February 2016.Even with the recent home price appreciation, prices are still 12.2 percent below their peak, which was reached in April 2006. Excluding distressed sales, home prices were still 7.8 percent below that peak month of April 2006, according to CoreLogic. Nevada was the state with home prices furthest below its peak value, at 35.4 percent. The state with the largest year-over-year home price appreciation, including distressed sales, was Colorado at 9.8 percent.

Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. As readers of Occupational Health may be aware, the Institution’s PublicServices Specialist Group organises the annual National Safety Symposium. Thisthree-day conference, now in its 26th year, is the leading event for health andsafety practitioners from the public sector. It is synonymous with a spirit ofcomradeship allied with the opportunity to absorb new and relevant information.The 2001 NSS, entitled “Essential elements of health and safety – backto basics”, is scheduled for 3-5 September. The Symposium has relocatedfrom its traditional home at Keele University, to a new venue, Chester College,and the intention is to move the event to different geographical locations eachyear. This fresh approach is reflected in the programme which seeks to providepractitioners with a chance to take a step back, have a look at what they aredoing and to seek confirmation that their knowledge and skills are valid. There will be four sessions hosting 11 challenging presentations with plentyof interest for occupational health practitioners. John McSwiney, Head Trainerat Osteopaths for Industry, will be looking at handling and lifting,. Guy Osmondfrom Osmond Ergonomic Office Solutions will examine the relationship between ITand ergonomics. Perhaps the star attraction for occupational health practitioners, however,will be Gary Saunders MIOSH RSP, with his talk “Occupational health? It’sjust so boring!” Saunders, Corporate Health and Safety Adviser at the NCHChildren’s Charity, will use his vast experience, including both SRN and OHNCqualifications, to test delegates’ understanding of occupational health. Judgefor yourselves whether the presentation’s title is ironic. For further information please contact the IOSH public relations department,tel: 0116-257 3100.
