After a panelist vote on the best stocks of 2020, one company stood well above the rest -- Tesla. The volatile stock has captured the attention of the world with a meteoric 731% rise year-to-date compared to a 15% increase for the S&P 500 index. Rewind the clock back another six months to the lows of June 2019 and TSLA stock has increased 19-fold. Forget doubling or tripling, that's a novemdecupling. We checked.
Perhaps, then, it comes as no surprise that 12 of our 16 panelists voted Tesla as the stock of the year. The company, which has become one of the ten most valuable companies in the world after beginning the year outside of the top 100, even had its stock highlighted in Google's global Year in Search 2020 report alongside terms such as "Coronavirus" and "Election results".
It's been a magical year for the stock, no doubt, but is it justified? Rob Maurer of Tesla Daily and Jim Cramer discuss Tesla and Elon Musk heading into 2021.
