The level of risk is now significantly lower. Here's the proof.

Few stocks have been as polarizing over the years as Tesla (TSLA -0.84%). It's hard enough to start an electric car manufacturing company from scratch. But to try that while building out an energy business, flouting the standard dealership model, and skating dangerously close to regulatory lines? That sounds like lunacy.

And yet -- despite twice being near the point of insolvency -- we find ourselves in 2021 with Tesla being the seventh-most-valuable company trading on American markets. You might think that kind of run means the stock isn't worth buying now.

But in this May 10 video on their YouTube channel, Motley Fool contributors Brian Stoffel and Brian Feroldi discuss why they still think the future is bright for the company...and its shareholders.
