These charts show how the era of rampant Tesla stock volatility could be coming to an end – Business Insider

A few years back, amid one of Tesla's periodic stock rallies, I suggested that shares could hit $400.

Didn't happen! The stock retreated and, until quite recently, failed to threaten that mark again.

But this week, Tesla surged through $400, an over-60%-improvement since September. The rally started when the company reported a surprise profit for the third quarter. And yet again, Tesla's market cap is the biggest of any US automaker (at better than $70 billion, Tesla has a big lead on No. 2 General Motors' $50 billion).
