1 Winner From Obama's New MPG Rules

Tesla looks to be a winner of the new CAFE fuel economy standards that were recently finalized by the Obama Administration. Automakers must average 35.5 MPG across their vehicle lineups by 2016, and 54.5 MPG by 2025. Some automakers could have trouble getting there, which could benefit Tesla. The ruling allows zero emission automakers to sell emissions credits to companies that will have a hard time meeting them. While not a game-changer for the company, it could benefit from some extra revenue from the ruling -- good news for a startup like Tesla. Overall, the company continues on the right track, especially with its Model S. Check out the video below for more on this innovative company. 

Tesla could certainly be a long-term winner, but it's also a risky stock.

    .Obama is a loser. His policies promote losers. Any company dependant on Obama's policies is a loser. Tesla is a loser. Tesla sells cars for half of what it costs to make them. Buy the vehicle, not the shares.
