5 ETFs Riding on Tesla's Incredible Surge

Read MoreHide Full Article

Tesla (TSLA - Free Report) shares have surged more than 200% in the past four months and more than 75% this year. Its market cap now exceeds the combined market value of big three automakers—General Motors (GM - Free Report) , Ford (F - Free Report) and Fiat Chrysler (FCAU - Free Report) --though the company sells far fewer cars.

The electric-vehicle maker reported better-than-expected results in the past two quarters and record deliveries in the fourth quarter. The stock was up again yesterday on reports that its Shanghai factory could reopen soon. The carmaker had started shipping Model 3 sedans from the plant which was completed in record time.

120 ETFs hold Tesla in their portfolios but it is not included in the S&P 500 index yet since the company hasn’t met the profit requirement for inclusion. The Invesco QQQ ETF which tracks the Nasdaq-100 index holds Tesla with a portfolio weight of about 1.5%.
