A broader look at the ASX

The week been Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Inc, moved up to become the second richest person in the world.

A lot of this is due to his 20% holding in the electric car company, Tesla.

The Tesla share price gained over 718% throughout 2020.

At the time of writing Tesla held a market cap of over US$500 billion.

On the back of this Tesla is joining the S&P 500. It all looks good, but have we seen this before?

Back in December 1999 Yahoo made its way into the S&P 500, just four months before the bust of the dotcom bubble.

While Tesla turned a profit of US$104 million in Q2 2020, it may not be enough to justify the mega market cap.

The last time the Dow Jones fell over from a dotcom bubble it took the All Ords with it. As seen above.

In a year like 2020 where tech stocks are all the rage, in the middle of a pandemic a fallout wouldn’t be the strangest thing to take place.
