Tesla dropped 20% today, dropping off the last couple of trading days, and looks like it will go down more tomorrow, with them being down 4% in after hours trading.
Should you buy, sell, or hold?
If you already own TSLA shares, it would probably be a mistake to sell them now for a loss, you might as well hold.
If you don’t own TSLA shares yet, it might be a good time to jump in and get them at a discount, because they will probably go up in the long-run.
And if you are a contrarian investor like me, should you buy more? Probably, limp in with small buys over the next couple of trading days and then see where it’s at.
