Oil and the electric car company have been linked, whether or not they should be, said trader Pete Najarian. He and the rest of CNBC's "Fast Money" traders looked at how to play Tesla and the commodity to which investors link it.
Tesla's roughly 3 percent slide in extended trading brought it to about $206 per share. Trader Guy Adami would wait for it to fall about $20 more before making any trade in the stock.
"I would rather see it pull back down to that [$185 per share] level again and take a shot whether it be in the options or whether it be in the absolute stock," he said.
Tesla becomes a buy if it falls below $200 per share, Najarian said. Saying that "you have to buy it when it's coming your way," trader Dan Nathan argued that $180 per share could provide a good entry point.
But trader Brian Kelly both felt that a downward move could prompt even sharper losses. "You've got a lot of downside on it," if shares go below $180, Kelly said.
Adami noted that he thought oil would keep going lower than its Wednesday settling point at about $49 per barrel, which could provide some motivation for investors who believe the two are linked. Najarian said that he believes oil will stay between $48 and $52 for the near future.
