Dow Jones futures fell on Friday morning, along with S&P 500 futures and Nasdaq futures, heading into the last trading day of 2022. The major indexes rose strongly on Thursday on employment records, Apple (AAPL) iPhone news and Tesla (TSLA) continues to bounce.
But the market is in a correction after breaking the key levels on Wednesday. Thursday marked just day one of a new sales expansion effort. Investors should be very careful about acquiring new opportunities.
Medpace (MEDP) flashes a Thursday shopping alert, while KLA Corp. (LITTLE), Starbucks (SYSTEM), United Rentals (URI), Mobileye (MBLY), Super Micro computer (SMCI) and Feather (FLR) is scheduled. But these stocks may rise or fall with the market.
Meanwhile, the Treasury Department’s new guidelines state that most Model Y vehicles will not be eligible for U.S. tax credits starting January 1 without reducing prices. But there’s a chance that all Tesla cars — and any EVs — could be allowed to qualify for the big tax at any rate.

Tesla Model Y Tax Credits
The Tesla bull case for 2023 relies heavily on new US taxes of up to $7,500 under the Inflation Reduction Act to boost domestic sales, reduce weak demand and costs in China and maybe Europe.
On Thursday, the Treasury Department listed the vehicles eligible for US EV credits. Most models of the Model Y will cost $55,000 to get EV specs, compared to $80,000 each for the SUV, pickup and vans.
But the seven-seat Model Y sedan, which didn’t sell much, went up to $80,000.
The base Model Y in the US starts at $65,990, Tesla needs to reduce the price, perhaps by reintroducing a smaller model of the Model Y SR+, which gets tax credits – unless it’s a seven-seat variant.
But, there is another problem! The EV Finance Office also noted that buyers may qualify for commercial EV loans. That qualifies EVs assembled outside of North America, including the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6. Foreign automakers, and America’s allies in Europe and Asia, strongly opposed the North American demand. But the lease rules seem to allow any EV to be eligible at any price, without any income restrictions.
It will be interesting to see what Tesla and other automakers do with regard to exchange and pricing to maximize the benefits from the new tax.
Guggenheim lowered Tesla’s estimates for 2023, in part on debt guidance.
“In short, the presentation is not good for TSLA and the size of the Model Y is estimated at $ 55K price. As a result, only the 7-seat version of the Model Y will be eligible for the $ 80K price tag, and while this. will be more attractive that car, we believe it represents a low percentage of total US sales,” the company’s analysts said. “We previously estimated that 60-70% of TSLA US units would be eligible for EV sales based on current prices, but with revised guidelines the number could be closer. to a 10-20% limited cost reduction in the Model 3 LR.”
TSLA stock was down slightly on Friday morning.

SMCI stock may find a new base at the end of next week.
The stock market recovered after Wednesday’s sell-off. After falling since the December 13 high, the major indexes were definitely “due” for a bounce.
The question is whether they will follow up in the coming days and weeks.
The market went into correction on Wednesday as the Dow Jones dropped its 50-day moving average and the Nasdaq set a two-year closing low.
Thursday is just day one of the new marketing effort. It will be more than that to feel more confident.

What To Do Now
It’s tempting to get back into the market when brands are holding up and there’s a sea of green in popular stocks.
But since the bottom of the bear market on October 13, brands and brands have been largely disrupted.
Some sectors, including industrials, metals and medical, have performed better in recent weeks, so it is easy to justify exposure to these sectors, either with specific stocks or ETF sectors. But minimize any exposure and be quick to take profits and cut losses.
Bottom line: This is a market correction. Don’t operate under bull market rules, especially 2020-esque mad bull rules.
Fund like you’re driving on an icy, windy road, not an open highway. Proceed with caution, or wait outside on the side of the road.
More time to plan your trip vs. Work on watch lists. It shows the strength of many stocks from different sectors.
