This chart illustrates Tesla's 2019 rebound - now shares are popping

4 weeks ago by Jon Marino in Markets

Tesla has bounced back in 2019, regaining more than 40% of its value after a tumultuous first half of the year. 

Now, there is one more signal for investors to appreciate to go along with its third quarter earnings beat, that sent shares shooting up 20% in after market trading October 23. 

Tesla's job postings grew nearly 40% over the course of the third quarter, as Elon Musk's electric car company continued to right itself in 2019. That came as shares continued their rally, though Tesla ($NASDAQ:TSLA) stock is still down double-digits for the year. 

As Thinknum Media has previously reported, Tesla began posting more jobs in fields including information technology, manufacturing, and service & energy installation over the course of Q3. 

About the Data: 

Thinknum tracks companies using the information they post online - jobs, social and web traffic, product sales and app ratings - and creates data sets that measure factors like hiring, revenue and foot traffic. Data sets may not be fully comprehensive (they only account for what is available on the web), but they can be used to gauge performance factors like staffing and sales.
