Tesla, Charles Schwab — Stocks NYSRTS, One Of US' 10 Largest Pension Funds, Purchased In Q4

The New York State Teachers’ Retirement System, one of the largest public pension funds in the United States, has piled on shares of Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) and Charles Schwab Corporation (NYSE:SCHW), according to filings made with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. 

What Happened: The pension fund added 999,948 shares of the Elon Musk-led company in the fourth quarter, while it did not own any at the end of the third quarter.

The fund added 382,987 Schwab shares to bring its holdings up to approx. 1.82 million shares.

At the same time, the pension fund shed shares of Intel Corporation (NYSE:INTC) and Oracle Corporation (NYSE:ORCL). 

The teacher’s pension held almost 5.68 million shares of Intel at the end of the fourth quarter, while it had nearly 6.08 million shares at the end of the preceding quarter, having sold 404,751 shares.

NYSTRS sold 289,217 shares of Oracle between the third and fourth quarters to bring its total holdings to nearly 2.6 million shares.

Why It Matters: Wedbush analyst Dan Ives maintained his $1,250 bull case target on Tesla in January, ahead of the company’s fourth-quarter earnings.

Intel, which is facing stiff competition from Advanced Micro Devices Inc (NASDAQ:AMD) and Nvidia Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA), reported fourth-quarter adjusted EPS of $1.52  beating a $1.10 cents estimate.
