Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA)

Stock prices of Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) and SolarCity Corp (NASDAQ:SCTY) closed up by 6.1% and 34.1% in trade in New York on Wednesday, December 16. The main reason for such hefty increase in SolarCity’s stock price is an extension of tax credit for renewable energy companies which was announced by Congress on Tuesday. The tax credits were about to end this year, but the spending bill got a green signal from Congress and now provides an extension for another five years. In addition to this, the current 30% tax credit has also been extended until 2019, according to Bidnessetc

Still, the bill requires the approval from the Senate and also from the House which is expected to vote this week. The tax credit is quite helpful for renewable companies as it boosts their profitability. In addition, companies can also benefit by avoiding the risk of oversupply once the extension is granted. Meanwhile, Tesla Motors’ stock price usually mimics the performance of solar stocks on the popular believe that the requirement for electric cars is somehow connected to the outlook of the renewable energy industry.

Mr. Musk is the top stakeholder in both companies. By Wednesday, his stake in SolarCity is at 21.84% or 21.31 million shares with a worth of around $1.14 billion. He bought nearly 200,000 shares of SolarCity on November 16, and had also purchased roughly 307,000 shares of the renewable energy company on November 13. In a day, Mr. Musk’s net worth has increased commendably. According to Bloomberg, his stake of 21.31 million shares in SolarCity observed an increase of roughly $291 million as a result of the surge of $13.64 in SolarCity stock.

It is now revealed that the processing box could be roughly the same size as a Nintendo Wii gaming console, according to postrecorder

Sony put a call out to PlayStation 4 owners and fans to recommend PlayStation 2 games they want to see playable on the PS4. One might argue that PS3 games are available to play on the PS4 as part of the PlayStation Now service, however the criticism remains that Sony has set unjustifiably high prices. Some games work better than others, as some are more forgiving of the inherent latency that comes from gaming in the cloud. Central to this speculation is the suggestion that the Japanese corporation will release a PlayStation 5 that is a pure streaming device.

But tapping into the force, is more than just capitalising on a movie release. Ive always believed that with the sense of convenience and immediacy that people get from streaming, whether its in music or video, that same attraction will be there in games eventually.
