Stocks to Watch Today: TSLA, NFLX, AAPL, GM
Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) is back under pressure after the latest charges by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) against CEO Elon Musk. According to an SEC debate, Musk violated a gag order by failing to seek approval for his tweet on expected production targets for the firm’s electric vehicles. The SEC says Musk’s tweet was a “blatant” violation of an existing settlement agreement. Musk had previously paid a hefty sum and relinquished his role as chair after tweeting he was thinking of taking the company private without filing such plans with the agency. TSLA stocks are off 0.6% on news that the SEC is reportedly seeking contempt of court charges against Musk. The streaming battle between Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX) and Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) is heating up. Netflix CEO Reed Hastings announced that his company would not provide its original films and TV shows on Apple’s newest video service. Apple is expected to unveil its own streaming service to its subscriber base next week. As the streaming wars continue to heat up and the competition grows more intense, some analysts are worried about the long-term viability of Netflix’s platform. Shares of General Motors Co. (NYSE: GM) are in focus as ride-sharing giant Lyft prepares to launch its IPO. General Motors owns a significant stake in Lyft, prompting some investors to demand that GM sell its private shares and return what could be worth up to $1.27 billion to GM investors. However, some investors would prefer that GM hold onto its stake ahead of the Lyft IPO for strategic purposes. Look for earnings reports from China Telecom Corp. Ltd.(NYSE: CHA), DSW Inc. (NYSE: DSW), FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX), Franco Nevada Corp. (NYSE: FNV), and Steelcase Inc. (NYSE: SCS).
