In late April, we highlighted that Ford (F) had retaken Tesla (TSLA) in terms of market capitalization following a massive jump for Ford in response to earnings.  Notwithstanding some weakness today on news of job cuts, in both terms of price and market cap, F has held pretty steady since that gap up. On the other hand, TSLA has continued its fall from grace from the title of largest US auto manufacturer that it earned for the first time back in 2017. Analyst downgrades today were the catalyst of an early 3%+ decline for TSLA, sending the stock to a 52-week low—its lowest level since December of 2016—further diminishing the company’s market cap. TSLA is now similar to its size in early 2017. With a market cap of $4.8 billion less than Ford, it is also the lowest of the auto manufacturers. Meanwhile, with a market cap of roughly $52 billion, General Motors (GM) is now distinctively the largest automaker in the country.  Start a two-week free trial to Bespoke Institutional to access our Chart Scanner, Earnings Explorer, and much more.
