After taking a close look at Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) stock with a SWOT analysis in the video below, Fool contributor Daniel Sparks and industrials bureau chief, Blake Bos, discuss Tesla's valuation.
Acknowledging that the stock is expensive by basically every possible valuation metric, Daniel suggests that investors don't immediately dismiss Tesla as a sell. For investors with Foolishly long-term horizons, cashing out on every potentially overvalued stock isn't necessarily the best practice. As long as Tesla is either meeting or exceeding shareholder expectations (and that seems to be the case), investors should consider keeping the stock in their portfolios despite a questionable valuation, Daniel says. On the other hand, Tesla's excellent execution doesn't automatically make the stock a buy, either.
Check out the video below to see whether Daniel thinks Tesla stock is a buy, sell, or hold.
