'Fast Money' Recap: Tesla in No-Man's Land

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The Nasdaq was able to close in positive territory while the broader markets closed slightly lower on Tuesday.

Tesla Motors (TSLA) beat on top- and bottom-line expectations and on nearly all of its previously guided metrics. However, the stock traded down roughly 10% in after-hours trading.

On CNBC's "Fast Money" TV show, Guy Adami, managing director at, said Tesla had a really good quarter, but the selloff puts the stock in "no-man's land." 

Tim Seymour, managing partner of Triogem Asset Management, said that while the valuation is insanely high, the focus should be on revenue and deliveries, not on margins.

Mike Khouw, managing director and primary strategist at DASH Financial, said that it's essentially impossible for the company to grow into its current valuation. 

Steve Grasso of Stuart Frankel said he would be a buyer at $140, if the level holds as support.

Ben Kallo, senior research analyst at R.W. Baird, was a guest on the show and said Baird downgraded the stock to hold because the valuation is too high. He added there is too much optimism from investors with too-high expectations. When Tesla provides 2014 guidance it might give the stock the boost that it needs to go higher, he concluded. 

Zillow (Z) beat on the top and bottom lines. Adami said investors could continue to own the stock with a stop-loss at $80. Seymour said the stock is completely overvalued and questioned how many homebuyers are going through its platform. 

Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) fell sharply due to its preliminary earnings results. Karen Finerman, president of Metropolitan Capital Advisors, said the company seems to have lost its way and there's no reason for investors to step in and buy right now. 

Hain Celestial Group (HAIN) beat on the top and bottom lines and Adami said the stock still has upside momentum. 

Dana Telsey, CEO and chief research officer of Telsey Advisory Group, was a guest on the show and said falling energy prices should help consumers during the holidays. When unleaded gasoline falls below $3.25 per gallon, she said, middle-class consumers' extra spending money starts to become more apparent, with Wal-Mart (WMT), Target (TGT), Dollar General (DG) and Dollar Tree (DLTR) benefiting the most. She added the upper class will continue to spend, regardless of energy prices. 

Seymour said casual dining could also get a boost from lower energy costs but youth unemployment will continue hurting teen retail stocks.

Grasso said Deckers Outdoor (DECK) could still have 10% upside. 

Hertz Global Holdings (HTZ) beat on earnings but had a disappointing conference call. Finerman said the company overestimated its fleet value and backed off its 2015 earnings per share guidance. She advised investors not to rush into the stock, which could break $20.
