According to peoples daily, at a regular press conference held by the foreign ministry on the 2nd, a reporter asked: it is reported that the US House of Representatives may pass a bill on restricting Chinese companies to list in the United States this week. Whats your comment? Foreign Ministry spokesman Hua Chunying replied: I think the question you just mentioned once again shows that the United States has adopted a discriminatory policy against Chinese companies, which is a political crackdown on Chinese enterprises. As for the specific question you mentioned that the US House of Representatives is going to vote on the Accountability Act of foreign companies, you can ask the competent authorities. I can stress with you again in principle that in todays highly globalized capital market, the right way to solve the problem is to strengthen cross-border regulatory cooperation and strengthen dialogue and cooperation on issues such as protecting the legitimate rights and interests of investors. We firmly oppose the politicization of securities regulation. We hope that the US side can provide a fair and just environment for foreign enterprises to invest and operate in the United States, instead of trying to set up barriers at all levels.
Tesla is short
Global auto (excluding Tesla) sales of $2.3 trillion, EBIT of $100 billion, and a total market value of $807 billion, Bree said, citing data. Tesla has $25 billion in sales, no EBIT, but a market capitalization of $438 billion. In addition, the market sales rate of the global automobile industry is 0.35 times, and Tesla has reached 18 times.
This is Brees second challenge to Tesla after more than two months. At that time, he mentioned that Tesla needs to sell regulatory points to make profits. With the gradual expiration of the tax credit policy, Teslas sales growth is sluggish. Based on the previous market sentiment, such investment is not wise. Maybe everyone is wrong.
