My Trade of the Week Real Money Pro($)

The Nasdaq is a very extended and overbought index. Same applies to Apple's (AAPL) shares, which is heavily weighted in the index. I continue to see speculative excesses in a number of parts of the Nasdaq (Biotech, social media, etc.) The Morgan Stanley reduction in its profit forecast for Tesla (TSLA) is meaningful -- and the brokerage's support for the stock (after the downgrade to earnings) is equally ludicrous. The Philly Fed miss is yet another sign of slowing domestic growth. I have other reasons, but I wanted to rush this trading idea out.
This is the company's most important release in some time.
A lot of stocks are doing incredibly well.
