Sustainable dividends set to accelerate on rising demand for electric cars.

The screen

Until Volvo revealed plans to go “electric,” Tesla was sucking all of the oxygen out of the auto industry. The rollout of its $35,000 (U.S.) Model 3 sedan is the latest headline grabber. Still, for Tesla to justify its whopping $51.9-billion market cap, it must prove it can make enough vehicles, including the half-a-million it forecasts for 2018. That challenge will likely keep the stock volatile – and dividend-less.
