Here's how the pros are trading Tesla and its wild moves

Tesla’s stock has piqued the interest of professional and retail traders alike as they try to capitalize on the electric car maker’s wild swings. Shares of the Elon Musk-led company have posted moves of at least 1% in 23 of the 31 trading days this year through Friday’s close. By comparison, the S&P 500 has recorded just five moves of that magnitude in 2020. These moves — including a 19.9% surge on Feb. 3 — propelled Tesla to record highs. But it hasn’t been all good news for the stock. Tesla has had five declines of at least 1% this year, including a 17.2% plunge on Feb. 5. The stock also fell 0.4% in volatile trading on Friday after Tesla priced its $2 billion secondary stock offering at $767 per share. CNBC talked to professionals trading Tesla’s swings. Here’s how they’re doing it.

‘Fading’ through options

Jon Najarian, co-founder of Market Rebellion and a CNBC contributor, said professional options traders are “fading” Tesla’s big swings by betting on out-of-the-money puts when the underlying stock surges and on out-of-the-money calls when it drops sharply. Out-of-the-money options have no intrinsic value, but they can still be used to make a profit. For example, a call option is out of the money when the underlying stock is lower than the call’s strike price. If the stock price breaks above or trades at the call’s strike, the option is considered to be “at the money,” meaning it will be profitable to exercise it. However, such trades are not for the faint of heart and can be expensive, especially when talking about Tesla. Najarian pointed out Tesla’s implied volatility has surged to about 70% from 45% in mid-November. Tesla’s 10-day volatility also soared to about 130% from 60%. “In layman’s terms, whether you want to bet on a collapse or a rally, it costs you twice to three times as much as it did 30 days ago,” Najarian said, who is long Tesla call option spreads.

Trading the stock

Mike Katz, partner at New York-based proprietary trading shop Seven Points Capital, said they are trading Tesla on a short-term basis using the previous day’s highs and lows as exit and entry points for their trades. “If you have a strategy where you’re buying strength then you’re stopping out if it takes out a previous day’s low, then that’s worked out really well,” he said. “I would think that if this thing is going to continue to have strength and legs, it shouldn’t really take off the previous day’s low with too much authority.” He noted this trend has been in place since Tesla’s stock rally began in late October, when the stock traded around $300 per share. Since then, Tesla shares are up about 144%, leaving high-flying stocks such as Facebook, Amazon, and Google-parent Alphabet in the dust.

Joe Rogan ate nothing but meat for 30 days and said his 'energy levels were amazing'

If you’re one of Joe Rogan’s 8.5 million Instagram followers, you’re likely familiar with his unconventional diet. The comedian, mixed martial arts fanatic and podcast host often shares photos of his favorite meal, which consists of elk meat, mushrooms and jalapenos.

But in January, Rogan experimented eating only meat for 30 days — no carbohydrates, vegetables or fruit. This style of eating is often referred to as “the carnivore diet.”

Rogan isn’t the first person to try this extreme diet; psychologist Jordan Peterson spoke on Rogan’s podcast in July 2018 about his experience eating only meat, and claimed it helped his mental health and energy levels. After hearing about other people who had success with the diet, Rogan was curious to see if it would help with his autoimmune condition, called vitiligo, he said on an episode of his podcast, “Joe Rogan Experience.”

Rogan said he ate just two meals a day, one around noon and then dinner. For breakfast, he would eat several eggs, and then grass-fed elk or beef steak for dinner. Rogan said he would also eat some bacon since elk is a lean meat. “Your body does not want a low-fat diet with low carbohydrates,” he said on the podcast.

To make up for the plants and other nutrients he was missing, Rogan said he took several dietary supplements. “I’m covering all my nutritional bases, but I’m not doing it with food, [and] I’m not doing it with plants. I’m only eating grass-fed meat,” he said. There were two times that he slipped up on his diet: once he ate olives, and another time he ate mango.

Surprisingly, Rogan said that he felt good. In an Instagram post Jan. 31, he said that he “lost 12 pounds and gained a lot of energy.”

Official says US, Taliban reach truce Afghan truce agreement

A senior U.S.official said Friday the United States and the Taliban have reached a truce agreement that will take effect “very soon” and could lead to withdrawals of American troops from Afghanistan.

The official said the agreement for a seven-day “reduction in violence” to be followed by the start of all-Afghan peace talks within 10 days is “very specific” and covers the entire country including Afghan forces.

The developments come as U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Defense Secretary Mark Esper met Friday in Munich with Afghanistan’s President Ashraf Ghani. They spoke on the sidelines of an international security forum in Munich.

A truce had been widely anticipated, and President Donald Trump has agreed in principle to the deal, which could lead to the start of significant U.S. troop withdrawals from Afghanistan, according to U.S. officials.

The final details were hammered out in recent days by U.S. special envoy for Afghanistan Zalmay Khalilzad and Taliban representatives in Doha, Qatar. Khalilzad was in Munich and attended Pompeo and Esper’s meeting as did Gen. Scott Miller, the commander of the U.S.-led international force in Afghanistan.

People familiar with the plan’s outlines say it calls for the successful conclusion of the weeklong truce to be followed within 10 days by the start of all-Afghan negotiations to set the road map for the country’s political future.

U.S. officials have brushed aside claims that a Taliban ultimatum forced their hand. And they noted that, despite Trump’s campaign pledge to withdraw American troops from Afghanistan and elsewhere, the Republican president has nixed previous deals that appeared close in response to attacks on U.S. forces.

Newlyweds stuck aboard quarantined ship on Valentine's Day: 'This is our honeymoon'

A newly married couple from Texas is stuck aboard the quarantined Diamond Princess cruise ship in Japan, but they are not letting it get in the way of their Valentine’s Day celebration.

Tyler and Rachel Torres, who tied the knot in September, say they are trying to stay optimistic after their honeymoon turned into an extended stay on the ship.

“We have a bottle of wine. We saved it the whole trip,” Tyler Torres, sitting alongside his wife Rachel of five months, said in a video aired on the network’s special “Outbreak” report that day. “Now we’re like: ‘It’s Valentine’s Day. We’re drinking it.'”

The luxury days on the ship are no more as passengers were instructed to stay in their cabins after a voyage through East Asia. While being holed up in their room for nine days after the cruise has ended, Rachel Torres joked that it feels as if they’d been married for 15 years.

“We’re also going to dress up for dinner tonight,” she said, while Tyler Torres showed off a Kit Kat bar they would share. “This is our honeymoon.”

Rachel Torres said the trip was fun, until the quarantine came. She is counting the days to be able to disembark the cruise ship on Wednesday, but her experience has since declined into a “roller coaster” as the optimism waned.

“Yesterday, hearing the news from the chief medical officer that [February] 19th may or may not be the date we get out and [it] kind of scared me a little bit,” she said.

4 of the best days of the year to make money babysitting

The average babysitter makes $16.50 per hour in the U.S., according to Sittercity. That varies by city and the number of kids you’re watching. But whatever your local going rate, there are days throughout the year when parents are more likely to need your babysitting help — and might pay more than usual. If you’re interested in picking up some extra cash, consider listing your child-care services on sites like Care.com, Sittercity, or Sitter, and make sure to book a night of work on any of the following throughout the year.

1. New Year’s Eve

New Year’s Eve was the most popular holiday for parents to post babysitting jobs in 2019, according to Care.com, which means New Year’s Eve offers an abundance of opportunities to pick up some work. And the average hourly rate for a babysitter on New Year’s in 2019 was 20% higher than on any other night of the year, according to WalletHub. If you want to maximize your earnings, consider keeping your calendar open.

2. Valentine’s Day

The second most popular holiday for parents to post babysitting jobs in 2019 was Valentine’s Day, with average hourly rates varying from about $14 to about $19, according to Care.com. This year, 34% of couples plan to have a night out on Valentine’s Day, according to WalletHub, so it’s a good opportunity to sign up on the sites or reach out to the parents that you know and offer your services.

3. Christmas Day

The most expensive holidays to hire a sitter are ones on which they’re most likely to have their own plans. With as many as 90% of Americans saying they celebrate Christmas, according to the Pew Research Center, December 25 could be a great time to book a babysitting gig: Clients understand they’re pulling you away from your own celebrations and could potentially pay more than usual. The first two weeks of December, when parents see a lot of holiday invites, drive up demand for babysitters as well, according to babysitting app Bambino. Being on the lookout for jobs throughout the season is smart — clients feeling the holiday spirit may pay, and tip, more generously, too.

4. Fourth of July

'We didn't have a goodbye kiss' — Couple separated on quarantined ship count the days to be reunited

An American couple who vacationed on the now-quarantined Diamond Princess cruise ship together could be at risk of returning home alone.

Rebecca Frasure has been in isolation in a Tokyo hospital away from her husband, Kent, since Friday when she was diagnosed with the novel coronavirus that has reached epidemic levels in China and become a global health crisis.

The Oregon resident told CNBC her heart “just sank” when she found out she had contracted the disease on the docked vessel.

“I didn’t know what to do. I didn’t know what to say,” said Rebecca, explaining that she had a minor cough but no fever.

“I’m not allowed to leave my room and I’m not allowed to interact with anybody else,” she said in a video that aired on the network’s special “Outbreak” report.

Kent, who tested negative of the disease, remains cordoned alone in the cabin he previously shared with his wife. He will be there at least until the mandatory 14-day quarantine is lifted next Wednesday.

The ship is moored at a Yokohama port near Tokyo as Japanese Ministry of Health officials try to prevent the deadly virus from spreading to the island country.

“We didn’t have a goodbye kiss just ’cause we didn’t really know what was going on,” Kent said in a separate video call with CNBC.

“We Facetime regularly and message each other quite a bit,” he added.

The Frasures were two of 3,700 people on board the Princess Cruise ship, a subsidiary of Carnival Corp., that was placed under quarantined last week. At the time, 10 passengers tested positive for the virus. That number has since grown to 175 total, including a quarantine officer. Diamond Princess is now on day eight of its standstill.

Coronavirus adds to 'dangerous days' for Detroit automakers in China

The coronavirus extending factory shutdowns in China is the latest problem for increasingly “dangerous days” for the Detroit automakers in the world’s largest vehicle market. General Motors last year saw its profits nearly cut in half, while Ford Motor and Fiat Chrysler were in the red amid substantial sales declines, a weakening economy and increased competition for European automakers as well as Tesla, which recently localized production of its Model 3 in China. Executives for each of the automakers this week said the companies are continuing to monitor the situation and work on contingency plans, however, they declined to estimate potential losses from their China factories remaining shuttered due to the virus. They described the situation as “fluid,” “very concerning” and adding uncertainty to an already “volatile” Chinese market. “We certainly are very concerned about the situation on an overall basis,” GM China President Matt Tsien said Thursday during an investor day for the automaker. The coronavirus, he said, “is likely to put further pressure on China’s economy,” leading to a larger near-term sales decline than expected for the year. GM had forecasted the Chinese market to be down by about 1 million vehicles to 24 million vehicles in 2020, which would be the third-consecutive year of declines. China’s National Health Commission on Friday confirmed 31,131 cases of the deadly pneumonia-like virus in the country, with 636 deaths. The epicenter of the virus is believed to be Wuhan, a major auto hub and home of Dongfeng Motor, one of the largest and most diversified joint venture automakers in China.

GM most at-risk

GM has the most to lose when it comes to the coronavirus impacting operations. It operates 15 assembly plants in the county with its Chinese partners. That compares to Ford with six assembly plants and Fiat Chrysler at two. The automakers also operate smaller supporting facilities. The companies did not factor the impact of the coronavirus in their 2020 forecasts, all of which were relatively flat or down from last year. “The coronavirus just introduces another dimension of complexity and risk for the Detroit automakers,” said Michael Dunne, CEO of ZoZoGo, which advises automakers doing business in China. The coronavirus, he said, “blindsided” the automakers and made them “hit pause” as they were attempting to mount rebounds in China.

China has extended a temporary factory shutdown through many provinces to help contain the epidemic. Many factories are expected to reopen as soon as next week, however the impact to the supply chain has already slowly started. Fiat Chrysler on Thursday confirmed the coronavirus may force it to temporarily suspend production at one of its many plants in Europe. Hyundai Motor earlier this week said this it would idle all seven of its plants in South Korea because of a lack of parts from suppliers in China. Honda Motor on Friday confirmed it will keep operations with Dongfeng Motor at plants in Wuhan suspended through Feb. 13, days later than initially planned. Facilities with GAC Motor and other companies in Guangzhou, located about 600 miles south of Wuhan, are scheduled to open Monday, according to the company.

‘Dangerous days’

Dunne, prior to the coronavirus, warned it was “dangerous days” for the Detroit automakers in China, saying Ford and Fiat Chrysler are “losing fistfuls of money” and GM’s profitability is “sinking like a stone.” Ford and Fiat Chrysler are getting closer to breakeven, however, neither has said when they expect their operations in China to be profitable. GM made about $1.1 billion last year in China, down from $2 billion a year earlier; Fiat Chrysler lost about $40 million in its Asia-Pacific region, led by vehicle shipments declining 29% in China; and Ford lost $771 million, roughly cutting its 2018 loss in half. Fiat Chrysler CEO Mike Manley said the company is “not satisfied” with losing money in the region. GM CFO Dhivya Suryadevara said GM remains “bullish” on the long-term China market, describing it as a “maturing industry” with increased competition. Ford executives touted cost-cutting measures in China.

Sanders leads Buttigieg in New Hampshire, days before primary, latest NBC News-Marist poll says

Sen. Bernie Sanders remains at the top of the Democratic field in a new NBC News/Marist poll of New Hampshire released Friday, days before that state holds its presidential primary.

Sanders, who is from neighboring Vermont, gets 25% of likely Democratic primary voters in the poll. Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, receives support from 21%. The difference is within the poll’s margin of error. The New Hampshire primary is Tuesday.

The latest poll shows that Sanders and Buttigieg are well positioned to capitalize on any momentum they have coming out of the Iowa caucuses, which were marred by technical issues in the counting process. The two candidates were essentially neck and neck in the results that were released.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren registers at 14%, good for third place. Warren hopes the state that neighbors her home of Massachusetts can help to lift her after a third-place finish in Iowa.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, who had a dismal showing in the Iowa caucuses, comes in at 13%, potentially indicating another disappointing result for the man who was considered the Democratic front-runner for much of the cycle.

The survey, conducted Tuesday through Thursday after the caucuses, measured 709 likely Democratic primary voters and has a margin of error of plus-minus 4.7 percentage points.

The survey also comes just hours before the next Democratic presidential debate in New Hampshire. Seven candidates will share the stage at the ABC News/Apple News/WMUR-TV event at St. Anselm College: Sanders, Warren, Biden, Buttigieg, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, billionaire activist Tom Steyer and entrepreneur Andrew Yang.

The Granite State will hold its first-in-the-nation primary on Tuesday. It follows Monday’s botched Iowa caucuses. The state took three days to release results after a range of reporting errors, and both Buttigieg and Sanders have declared victory in a tight contest as the Democratic National Committee calls for a recanvass.

For Buttigieg, another strong showing in New Hampshire could give the former long shot the legitimacy and fundraising needed to stay in the primary race for a while.

A Sanders win in the state would further solidify his position near the top of the 2020 Democratic primary race. He hopes to make a run for the top spot in the third and fourth nominating states of Nevada and South Carolina, and has a polling lead in California, a prize on the upcoming Super Tuesday.

In remarks earlier Friday, Sanders targeted Buttigieg. He cited multiple media reports saying the former mayor was a favorite of billionaire donors, framing the election as a choice between those who champion the working class and those who represent the wealthy.

The luxury days 'are gone' — Guest describes life inside quarantined cruise ship off Japan

One of the quarantined passengers aboard a Princess Cruises ship told CNBC on Thursday that the vessel is moored, but guests are not allowed to leave.

“The cruise has ended and we are in a quarantine situation,” said 74-year-old David Abel, who’s being held on the Diamond Princess with his wife, Sally, in Japan as the cruise line plays a role in stopping the spread of the deadly coronavirus.

He spoke to CNBC through a Skype call that aired on the network’s special “Outbreak” report.

“All of the luxury of having someone — a steward coming to the cabin, make the bed, put chocolate on the pillow, change the towels, face cloths, clean the bathroom — those days are gone,” Abel said explaining the environment. “It just ain’t happening.”

The Carnival-owned company on Tuesday placed 3,700 passengers and crew under a two-week mandatory quarantine after 10 passengers tested positive for the fast-spreading virus. It’s a move required by the Japanese Ministry of Health. Since then, 10 additional passengers have tested positive, bringing the total to 20.

Abel’s been leading a private Facebook group for his fellow passengers in an effort to “let off steam” and cheer each other up. He’s also been posting daily Facebook Live videos, while the ship provides guests with complimentary internet and phone service.

“Those passengers who are on the inside cabins: they’ve got no windows to look out of, there’s no daylight, natural light and they can’t take a walk down a corridor. It’s strict confinement to cabins for all passengers,” Abel said in describing the scene from inside. “But the captain has announced that people on the inside cabins are going to be allowed access onto the open deck for exercise and fresh air.”

Before the quarantine took effect, a previous guest who did not have any symptoms while on-board had tested positive for the virus on Saturday, six days after leaving the cruise ship.

Health officials around the world are scrambling to stop the spread of the new virus, which was first discovered Dec. 31 in the Chinese city of Wuhan in Hubei province.

China said there was an additional 73 deaths and 3,143 new cases of the coronavirus in China as of the end of Feb. 6, bringing the total number of deaths in China to 636 and the cumulative number of confirmed cases to 31,161.

The World Health Organization said there’s been more than 150 coronavirus cases in about two dozen countries outside of China and declared the virus a global health emergency. Eleven of those cases are in the United States.

The U.S., for its part, instituted on Sunday a mandatory 14-day quarantine of Americans who in the last two weeks have visited Hubei province. The Trump administration is also instructing Americans returning to the U.S. to undergo a two-week self quarantine if they have been in other parts of mainland China in the past two weeks.

Finland to give men and women almost 7 months of paid parental leave each

Finland has announced plans to offer men and women equal paid parental leave, as well as an extension of the total family allowance from 11.5 months to just over 14 months. The Finnish government, which was only appointed in December, said Wednesday that both parents would get a paid leave allowance of 164 days, or around 6.6 months. Pregnant women will get an additional month on top of this quota and single parents will be able to use the total allowance offered to two parents. Parents can also

Finland to give men and women almost 7 months of paid parental leave each

Finland has announced plans to offer men and women equal paid parental leave, as well as an extension of the total family allowance from 11.5 months to just over 14 months.

The Finnish government, which was only appointed in December, said Wednesday that both parents would get a paid leave allowance of 164 days, or around 6.6 months.

Pregnant women will get an additional month on top of this quota and single parents will be able to use the total allowance offered to two parents.

Parents can also keep 69 days of their allowance days for later use.

Finland’s government said the changes will come into force in 2021 at the earliest and that the policy was currently being developed by an official working group.

The government didn’t specify how much of its extended leave would be fully paid.

Finland’s minister of social affairs and health, Aino-Kaisa Pekonen, said the reform was an “investment in the future of families and the wellbeing of families,” according to a translation of the government statement.

She said it would mark a “big change in attitudes,” and would strengthen the relationship both parents have with their child early on in life.

However, Pekonen recognized the change “will not alone solve the everyday challenges of families with small children,” adding that a shift towards “family-friendly attitudes in the workplace” was also needed.

Finland’s prime minister Sanna Marin said on a panel at the World Economic Forum last month that she split parental leave equally with her husband, both taking six months out of work to take care of their daughter.

Marin, the youngest prime minister in the world, admitted at the time Finland needed to reform its parental leave policy, explaining that “too few fathers were spending time with their children while they were young.”

Sweden has the most generous paid leave allowance in Europe for both sexes, offering parents a total quota of 480 days, or 240 days each.

Estonia has the best maternity leave, offering mothers 85 weeks out of work fully paid, which works out at around 1.5 years, as seen in a 2019 Unicef report.

In the same report, Unicef highlighted that the United States was the only OECD country without nationwide paid maternity or paternity leave.
