Tesla’s price target slashed, Waymo’s new deal, GM’s plea to regulators: Companies to watch

Here are the companies Yahoo Finance is watching today.

A big price cut for Tesla (TSLA). Goldman Sachs has lowered its target for the stock to $158 a share. It was originally at $200. Analysts there see a "downward path" for Tesla's shares, and expect demand to slide.

Google's (GOOG) Waymo has two new partners as it develops self-driving cars, Nissan and Renault. The companies have struck a deal to work together on autonomous vehicles in France and Japan, and could expand it to other places. Waymo already has a partnership with Lyft and has been testing self-driving taxis in Phoenix.

General Motors (GM) is trying to prevent another recall of its Takata air bags. The automaker is asking federal regulators to exempt it from recalls that were required under a 2015 deal between Takata and the government. Twenty-four people have been killed and hundreds of others have been injured from the airbags worldwide.

Adam Sandler's “Murder Mystery” just had the biggest opening weekend ever for a Netflix (NFLX) movie, racking up more than 30 million views worldwide. This eclipses the previous record held by Sandra Bullock's “Bird Box.” Back in 2017, Netflix confirmed viewers had already watched half a billion hours of Sandler, leaving little doubt about the success of his four-film deal with the streaming platform.
