November 2017 performance so far

As of November 24, GM and Fiat Chrysler are trading in the positive territory on MTD (month-to-date) basis, with 3.4% and 1.4% gains, respectively. Tesla, Ford, and Ferrari have lost about 4.8% 1.4%, and 5.0% MTD, respectively, while the S&P 500 has risen 1.1% in November so far.

Legacy auto companies GM, Ford, and Fiat Chrysler reported YoY (year-over-year) rises in their 3Q17 earnings, while Tesla reported its largest quarterly loss in the same quarter (ended September 30). This could be the primary reason why Tesla stock has underperformed its peers in November so far.
