Ben kallo performance

In fact, Ben’s first recommendation to BUY Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) earned him his highest return. Ben was “confident that the company [would] achieve its production estimates for the Gen III model given its strong cash position, and the success of its Model S vehicle.” Ben added that “Tesla has a leading position within the industry in terms of battery costs,” which led Ben to believe “the price [will] reduce further as innovations in lithium-ion technology become widespread.” Ben earned +40.0% over S&P-500!

Following this successful recommendation, Ben maintained his BUY TSLA recommendation, expecting strong production and deliveries from the company’s second quarter earnings of 2013. Ben expected Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) “to surpass its Model S deliveries target of 21k vehicles for 2013,” and he expected “improvement in the gross margins,” due to “the price increase of the Model S along with other factors including production efficiencies, and breakpoints from suppliers.” Ben walked away from this recommendation with a +27.5% measured performance over S&P-500.

After SolarCity Corp (NASDAQ:SCTY) sold their first bonds backed by revenue from rooftop solar projects, Ben recommended BUY SCTY. He argued “we expect additional securitizations to occur as SolarCity Corp (NASDAQ:SCTY) continues to install PV systems” and that securities backed by revenue from solar panels, “could merit a lower cost of capital as investors become increasingly comfortable with financing the project.” This recommendation earned him +17.6% over S&P-500, shortly followed by another successful BUY SolarCity Corp (NASDAQ:SCTY) recommendation, earning him another +11.3%.

Most recently, Ben recommended BUY Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) following its fourth quarter results, which reported the delivery of 6,900 Model S sedans. More than 25,000 Model S cars are now on the road, and the company successfully achieved the target of delivering 25,000 vehicles in 2012 and 2013. Ben’s recommendation has earned him +15.3% over S&P-500.
