- Tesla (TSLA) just cannot break below key support at $1,000.
- Equity markets remain supportive with more all-time highs for the indices.
- Tesla (TSLA) is still seeing selling from CEO Elon Musk.
Tesla shares are still holding above the key $1,000 level as we approach the final lap of the year. Tesla (TSLA) is up an impressive 44% so far this year in what has been the year of the mega tech names. Indeed Goldman Sachs notes this morning that five stocks account for more than half of the S&P's return since the end of April. Those names are all familiar big tech, Tesla, Microsoft, Alphabet, Nvidia, and Apple. This so-called narrowing of the returns or a lack of market breadth is often cited as a bearish factor. Goldman adds that the market cap of the top 10 stocks in the S&P make up 31% of the total S&P 500 market cap. That is the highest since 1980. While all this is beginning to sound increasingly alarmist fear not Goldman said. They estimate that this narrowing trend is set to continue and to stick with growth stocks into 2022. Tesla (TSLA) should see more benefits if that strategy is maintained, adding further to the large headache the stock gives value to investors. Price/earnings multiples are out the window with Tesla. It is pure momentum.

Tesla (TSLA) stock forecast
We are still forecasting Tesla to return to the gap at $910 before year-end. $1,000 held again on Friday but the level is seeing increasing bombardment. The more a level is tested the weaker it becomes. We fear the next time it will go and that will signal a sharp move to $910. The stock is already well capped by the 9 and 21-day moving averages and only a break above $1063 will change our bearish stance.
