Artemis Investment Limited – Stock Market Extends Gain; Tesla Bullish
The stock market turned in another solid performance Monday, shrugging off weak economic data from China and a big miss in the Empire State Manufacturing index.
The Nasdaq composite ended with a gain of 0.6%. Tesla stock was a nice gainer in the Nasdaq 100, up 3%, after CEO Elon Musk said Tesla has produced 3 million vehicles, including 1 million at its Shanghai plant. Preliminary data showed lower volume on the Nasdaq.
Costco also outperformed in the Nasdaq 100 ahead of busy week of retail earnings reports. Costco is in a good technical setup as it forms a cup-with-handle base with a 552.81 buy point.
