Best Safest Stocks To Watch For 2019


Another fatal crash involving a Tesla Inc. electric car is under scrutiny following Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk’s latest lashing-out over media coverage of his electric-car maker.

Police in southern Switzerland are investigating the death of a German man whose Tesla crashed into a guardrail and burst into flames last week, the Associated Press reported Tuesday. Bloomberg News reached a representative of the Bellinzona police who said no one is available to provide details on the incident until Wednesday morning.


“We are deeply saddened by this accident, and we are working to establish the facts of the incident and offer our full cooperation to local authorities,” the company said in an emailed statement. “Tesla has not yet received any data from the car and thus does not know the facts of what occurred, although it appeared to be a high-speed collision.”

Musk, 46, sent a series of tweets Monday criticizing journalists for not reporting that Tesla makes what he says is the safest car on the road. He reiterated that the company will begin reporting safety-related data on a quarterly basis, starting after the three months ending in June.

Owning a stock for years — or decades — makes future dividend yields higher, future share growth more powerful, and provides peace of mind compared to the more frenzied buying and selling that seems to dominate investing today. Even better, there’s never a bad time to start.
