Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) was trading flat on Friday as the EV-giant heads into its AI Day 2022, scheduled to kick off today (Sept. 30) at 8 p.m. ET in Palo Alto, California.
Tesla is expected to share its latest developments in artificial intelligence, including full self-driving for its vehicles, the Tesla bot and Dojo, a supercomputer. Last year at Tesla’s first ever AI event, the company unveiled its bot named Optimus and this year a humanoid robot prototype is expected to be revealed.
Tesla has been affected by the bear cycle of the general market for much of this year, although Tesla has shown relative strength in comparison.
Since the end of July, Tesla has been trading within about 10% of the 200-day simple moving average (SMA), while the S&P 500 has been in a sharp decline since Aug. 16, now trading down 16% from the 200-day SMA.
