Tesla Stock: Smart Move or Risky? 🚗

Should you invest in Tesla now? 💸

Early Bird Prime for May 12, 2024

Tesla (Nasdaq: TSLA), the once-beloved stock of the pandemic era, has now become the laughing stock of the market. 

In case you haven't heard, Tesla's stock is down 32.18% in 2024. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 is strutting its stuff with a 10% increase.
