Read MoreHide Full Article

Electric vehicle maker Tesla (TSLA - Free Report) hosted a 2023 investor day presentation in Austin, Texas, on Wednesday. CEO Elon Musk shared his “Master Plan 3.” However, the plan lacked details and investors punished the stock. TSLA lost about 6% on Mar 2 but is up 55.7% this year.

“We will have a proper sort of product event, but it would be jumping the gun if we answer your questions [now],” Musk said in response to a question about the generation 3 car during a Q&A session, as quoted on Yahoo Finance.

Investors awaited Tesla’s proper 2023 plan of action, which will help the company “remain competitive in an increasingly crowded and price-sensitive EV market,” said AXS Investments CEO Greg Bassuk in a note to clients, as quoted on Yahoo Finance.

Why Should You Buy the Dip Via Tesla-Heavy ETFs?

Musk and the Tesla team talked about AI, charging infrastructure, and supply-chain improvements from Gigafactory Austin. The event also announced that two upcoming models would be added to the Tesla product portfolio, and its next gigafactory would be situated in Monterey, Mexico.

Tesla maintained its target to produce 20 million electric vehicles per year by 2030. The company reported full-year deliveries of around 1.31 million vehicles in 2022.

Tesla recently cut prices to boost demand. Musk added that “even small changes in the price have a big effect on demand,” quoted on CNBC. The company is being able to offer products at lower prices by cutting costs.

Tesla disclosed that its generation 3 platform would likely cost half as much as its other vehicle platforms from a production point of view, deploy around 40% less factory space to manufacture and use electric motors that won’t be needing pricey rare-earth metals.

Several analysts are bullish on Tesla. The stock has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold). Against this backdrop, investors can buy the dip in the stock through Tesla-heavy ETFs. This will help them steer clear of company-specific concentration risks. The method will be specifically beneficial to those disappointed by Tesla being short on details on the Investor Day.
