Tesla Motors Inc.'s Greatest Strength

In the video below, Fool contributor Daniel Sparks and industrials bureau chief Blake Bos take a close look at Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA  ) stock using a SWOT analysis. A SWOT analysis picks apart a company's primary internal strengths and weaknesses and external opportunities and threats. In this segment of the video, Daniel and Blake discuss Tesla's biggest strength: execution.

Daniel argues that Tesla's execution has been stellar on two fronts. First, the company's Model S itself is proof of how well Tesla has been able to execute -- and the car's exhaustive list of accolades can attest to this claim. Second, Daniel argues that Tesla's ability to quickly ramp up production enables investors to have incrementally more confidence in the auto manufacturer's bold aspirations.

    Apparently Musk has produced a very good product, but I can't help but think that articles like this, which fail to even mention earnings, are indicators of a cult stock. Even though I made a few bucks shorting Tesla during its temporary fall from grace, I have been wrong about its overall stock price trajectory. My thoughts remain that there are about 5 world class vehicle manufacturers with deep pockets that will eventually build a car that greatly diminishes Tesla uniqueness. Time will tell.

    @Decoy0527: "Apparently"? Nah. It's the real deal. Go drive it. Check the website, and attend a test-drive event near you. Those 5 world class companies? They are ICE builders. Think "Titanic" to get an idea of how hard it will be for them to switch to pure BEV.

    @Decoy0527, if you want to invest in Tesla, you should do a lot more research. There are so many articles available. Tesla at this point is no longer a cult stock. When the car was just cool, then you could call it a cult stock, but now the car is the safest on the road, it's not anymore. Everyone who wants the best for their family wants it. Everyone who can afford it buys it. Their supercharging network is also expanding fast and getting better. As far as earning, they're making 25% profit margin but every dime goes to expand the company, so if you're looking for companies with billions in cash reserve like Apple, then this is not a company for you.
