The Motley Fool UK owns shares of and has recommended Tesla. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. The Tesla share price has gone down recently. While they were trading around $880 in late January, they closed around $563 on 8 March. With more competition entering the marketplace, investors seem to be a little less optimistic over the company’s future growth. While Tesla is lower now than it was before, I’d buy the FTSE 100 instead. Here’s why.FTSE 100In the medium term, I’d buy the FTSE 100 rather than Tesla for two reasons.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…First, I think the FTSE 100 has less risk than Tesla. Many FTSE 100 companies are established with wide moats. The FTSE 100 index as a whole is diversified across many different sectors. Tesla, meanwhile, isn’t as established and the company depends heavily on the fortunes of the electric vehicle sector. If too much competition enters into the electric vehicle sector or if Tesla doesn’t sell as many vehicles as expected, its stock might not do as well.Second, I reckon the FTSE 100 has a more reasonable valuation than Tesla does. Because it hasn’t rallied much at all over the past few years, I think the FTSE 100 could be in ‘value territory’. Analysts at UBS seem to share the same thinking as they wrote, “We maintain our preference for the UK equity market, which trades at a 20 per cent discount to global equities on a 12-month trailing price-to-earnings ratio, yet offers close to 40 per cent earnings growth in 2021 on our forecasts.”Although the relative P/E comparisons between indexes may have changed slightly since the UBS analyst comments, I think the core rationale still holds. Tesla, meanwhile, has a much higher valuation with a P/E ratio that’s around 900 and a forward P/E ratio of around 100.Given that I think the FTSE 100 is trading at an attractive valuation and I expect its overall component earnings to increase meaningfully in the next few years as the global economy recovers, I reckon the odds are pretty good that the FTSE 100 will be higher in a few years time than it is now. The UBS analysts themselves have a target of 7,200 for the FTSE 100 at the end of this year, although I am not sure if it will end up being that. Forecasts can change as developments occur in the future, and can’t be relied on.Given Tesla’s high valuation, I’m not as sure about its medium term.Risks and the long termWith that said, the FTSE 100 does have risks. In my view, the vaccines are currently winning in the battle between Covid-19 vaccines and variants, but that could change. If the variants become too much of a problem, economic growth might not be as strong as analysts expect. In that case, FTSE 100 profits might not increase as much as expected either (if they grow at all).I reckon Tesla could also potentially be a good long-term investment depending on how well the company does with autonomous driving and other technologies. To me, Tesla’s Elon Musk is a genius and his companies will create a lot of value. Musk, however, has multiple companies and Tesla will have substantial competition in the future.

PITTSBURGH — Three weeks after he returned to the lineup and nearly three months after he was hit by a pitch, Justin Turner’s left wrist still hurts.He knew it would.“Everyone I’ve talked to who’s done it before said there’s probably going to be a few months of dealing with crap,” Turner said. “Really, it’s been almost three months and yesterday was the first time it’s really flared up.“You can’t be too disappointed about it. There’s going to be good days and bad days until it completely goes away – and when that day is, nobody really has an answer.” Whicker: Dustin May yet another example of the Dodgers’ eye for pitching Dodgers’ hot-hitting Corey Seager leaves game with back injury Dodgers’ Dave Roberts says baseball’s unwritten rules ‘have changed, should change’ “I’m 100 percent satisfied with the quality of my at-bats,” Turner said, pausing. “If I told you I was happy with my results, I’d be lying to you. I don’t think there’s a guy in here right now who’d say they’re happy with their results – except maybe Matt Kemp. (Max) Muncy’s having a good year. But I’m sure he’d rather be hitting .300 with nine homers.“I don’t think anyone’s ever satisfied.

It’s something he can manage.”Turner acknowledged that, saying, “Swinging or taking ground balls, it’s not going to break again. There’s going to be some soreness in there that I’m going to have to deal with.” That also affects his range of motion with his left hand, Turner said.Sign up for our Inside the Dodgers newsletter.

But through Wednesday’s game, Turner was batting .243 with a .668 OPS and only five extra-base hits (four doubles and one home run) in 19 games since returning from the injury.

Bengaluru: Some outlets of the popular Cafe Coffee Day (CCD) chain in central Bengaluru remained shut on Wednesday as a mark of respect to its founder-chairman V.G. Siddhartha, who died under mysterious circumstances, a company source said. “Retail outlets in the city centre, including our main coffee ‘the square’ opposite the famous Cubbon Park are closed for the day as a homage to our founder-chairman along with our main office above the cafe,” a CCD source clarified to IANS here.

In Kerala there are 25 outlets — six in Thiruvananthapuram, 14 in Kochi, and five in Kozhikode. We have been asked to go on with the business and hence we abided by that,” said the CCD staff, who did not wish to be identified. Abey Tellas, a professor at a leading college sipping his coffee at a outlet in Thiruvananthapuram, told IANS: “I was a bit surprised to see this outlet open. When I entered, it was business as usual. I thought about the founder of CCD, that it’s a bit sad, he is no more.” Meanwhile, the board of Coffee Day Enterprises appointed S.V. Ranganath as its interim chairman, after the police in Mangaluru earlier recovered the body of its founding Chairman V.G. Siddhartha almost 36 hours after he went missing. The board also decided to appoint Nitin Bagmane as the interim Chief Operating Officer (COO), a company statement said.

The Delta Routine has graced several stages with its rock ‘n’ roll, but the band isn’t so familiar with Columbus – and its about to change that this weekend. The Milwaukee-based group is scheduled to perform in Columbus 7 p.m. Sunday at Scarlet & Grey CafÃ©. Lead vocalist and guitarist Nick Amadeus said the band is looking forward to the Columbus tour stop and the fresh audience to come with it. He added the band has toured through parts of Ohio before but is excited to tour elsewhere in the state. “Cleveland was a little bit weird,” Amadeus said, laughing. “We wanted a change-up.” Amadeus also said The Delta Routine has drawn some of its influences from rock band Hero Jr., an Indianapolis-based band that is touring with The Delta Routine. Columbus-based band Up All Nights is also scheduled to perform with the groups at Scarlet & Grey Sunday. Comprised of Amadeus, keyboardist and vocalist Al Kraemer, guitarist and vocalist Victor Buell IV, bassist and vocalist Evan Paydon and drummer Kyle Ciske, The Delta Routine has had numerous lineup changes in members and instruments since its formation seven years ago. Amadeus said the band found some of its current members by chance at a fashion show. Another important part of the group though is its producer Mike Hoffman, who came across the band due to being a family friend of Amadeus. He’s been with the band from the group’s release of its self-titled debut album in 2007 up to its fourth and most recent release “Cigarettes and Caffeine Nightmares” Oct. 9. “Nick and the guys are very driven, inspired chaps. You know, the only kind I’ll work with,” Hoffman said in an email. “You gotta have rocket fuel in your veins if you’re gonna go anywhere. These guys are tanked up and ready to launch, always.” Referring to The Delta Routine’s music as rock ‘n’ roll with a bit of a pop element, Amadeus said he normally tries to take the lead on the songwriting aspect of albums by laying down some lyrics, then getting the main beat. He said, however, the band’s last album was a collaborative effort from the group. Brett Ruland, owner of Spoonful Records located at 116 E. Long St., said the rock scene is still very popular in Columbus and the turnout at The Delta Routine’s show should be pretty large. “That genre always sells well,” Ruland said. “Indie and rock are the bestsellers here.” Although Ruland said he has never heard of The Delta Routine, he said he’s open to listening to its music and getting himself and others in the rock ‘n’ roll scene familiar with it. Scarlet and Grey is located at 2203 N. High St. and will charge a $5 to $10 cover charge at the door for Sunday’s show.
