Two Red-Hot Stocks: GOOG – TSLA

By May 18, 2013, 7:30 AM Author's Blog  

Two days after surpassing the $900 level for the first time ever, Google‘s (GOOG) surge on Wall Street is still showing  no signs of slowing down. The ticker traded as high as $913 per share intraday in Friday’s session in New York, pushing the search giant’s stock market value above $300 billion. Since mid-January lows around $695, Google’s stock, which has risen about 60 percent in the past 10 months, is up nearly 30 percent.

Meanwhile, Tesla (TSLA) shares continued their parabolic run. The stock, which is up a ‘only’ 200% over the past 52 weeks, compared to the S&P’s 23% increase, printed the tape at $91.50 in recent trading following Wednesday’s news that cofounder Elon Musk would invest $100 million in the company’s stock as the surging electric car maker uses a sharp rise in its PPS to issue stock and repay government loans.

In the accompanying video, ‘The Daily Ticker’s Aaron Task discusses these two red-hot stocks with Barry Ritholtz, author of ‘The Big Picture’ blog.
