Dow Jones futures were little changed Monday morning, along with S&P 500 futures and Nasdaq futures.

The normally volatile Tesla stock has been trading unusually tight in the past few weeks and this is a bullish sign.
Tesla also recently lowered prices for models 3, S and X in the US and Europe, as well as for models S and X in China. Deliveries of Model Y, currently only in the USA, are now much faster after orders. These measures should stimulate sales growth in the market, which is now still affected by the coronavirus crisis.
"Tesla stock, meanwhile, is on a tear in 2020, up more than 90%, crushing comparable returns of the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average over the same span," writes Barrons. "GM and Ford shares, on the other hand, are down about 24% and 36% year to date, respectively. In addition, Tesla trades for about 70 times estimated 2021 earnings. Ford and GM, on a combined basis, trade for less than 10 times."
