Read MoreHide Full Article

Tesla (TSLA - Free Report) has proven to be a super stock this year, having gained 126% (as of Jun 9, 2023). This leads to the question of whether it is time to sell Tesla?

The stock is by far the most overbought stock on Wall Street, per a CNBC article. The stock has a Relative Strength Index (14) of 85.79X. Notably, Relative Strength Index (RSI) is a momentum oscillator that measures the speed and change of price movements. Traditionally, the RSI is considered overbought when above 70.

Tesla is overvalued by all standards. Price/Earnings (TTM) of Tesla is 63.54X versus 10.46X held by the industry. Price/Book of the most recent quarter is 15.86X versus the industry’s P/E of 1.04X. Price/Cash Flow for the most recent fiscal year is 47.43X versus the industry P/CF of 7.83X.

The Zacks Value Score of Tesla is downbeat at “D” while Momentum Score is “F.”

Agreement - Estimate Revisions

Over the last 60 and 30 days, earnings estimates for the coming quarter have been slashed by seven and one out of 10 analysts, respectively. There have been no upward estimate revisions in the past seven, 30 days and 60 days.

Magnitude - Consensus Estimate Trend

The current Zacks Consensus Estimate for earnings for the June quarter is $0.82 per share. The Most Accurate Estimate is $0.68 per share, resulting in an Earnings ESP of -17.07%. A month ago, the estimate was $0.83 per share, while 60 days ago, the estimate was $0.90 per share.

Against this backdrop, we can say that Tesla’s rally may hit a bump. There is a high probability of the stock undergoing a temporary decline in the upcoming trading days, providing an opportunity for bullish traders to consider entering the market.

Traders thinking of making a short-term profit out of this situation may bet on  inverse Tesla ETFs.
