Tesla the renowned automaker on Monday declares that they have surged as much as 11%, to an all-time high of $1,342 per share, after Joe Osha, an analyst at JMP Securities, enhanced his price target to a Wall Street high of $1,500. It suggests that Tesla is about to surge another 24% this year.
OSHA’s Concerns, and Tesla’s Policies
The buoyant upgrade from JMP came after Tesla reported second-quarter deliveries that surpassed analysts’ expectations: The Company reported 90,650 deliveries, as the average estimate was about 70,300. “If the company manages 90K units during a particularly challenging quarter, there is no reason that TSLA cannot ship 130K to 140K units a quarter by the end of 2020”.
Moreover, OSHA stated, “That puts TLSA on a route to ship 757K units in 2021.” OSHA, or Occupational Safety and Health Administration agency, sees Tesla’s continuous growth and forecasts that the company would certainly reach $100 billion in revenue in 2025.
The company has planned to deliver 2.5 million vehicles and has an EBITDA margin of 20%. OSHA confirmed his “market outperform” rating on shares of Tesla. It says, “We believe that TSLA is a category killer that is still early in the process of forming a dominant position in electric vehicles. The stock needs to be valued in comparison to other similarly successful companies,”

JPMorgan’s Ryan Brinkman’s Analysis
Other analysts have also noted that the delivery has beaten, and upgraded their price targets as a result. JPMorgan’s Ryan Brinkman, who is formerly one of the most bearish Tesla analysts on Wall Street has upgraded his price target to $295 from $275 on Sunday and endorsed his “underweight” rating. Emmanuel Rosner of Deutsche Bank also improved his price target to $1,000 from $900 and sustained his “hold” rating on shares.
Tesla’s stock has swelled 17% this week alone, and on Monday closed above $1,000 per share for the very first time ever and on Wednesday hit a new record high price of $1,135 per share. Tesla, with its latest stock rally, is now the most valuable car manufacturing company in the world that is valued at around $208 billion.
Tesla, and Its Giant Rivals
With having that market cap, Tesla has now officially exceeded Toyota—its main rival for that title that is valued at roughly $203 billion; as the stock of Toyota has fallen more than 1% in overseas trading worldwide. Tesla has now got worth more than many of its rivals combined, such as
Ford ($24 billion)
Ferrari ($32 billion)
General Motors ($36 billion)
BMW ($41 billion)
Honda ($46 billion)
Volkswagen ($74 billion).
Tesla has high ambitions, and the milestone they have settled down is highly indicative of investors’ vast enthusiasm for Tesla. The Company’s shares have more than doubled so far this year, surging over 150% amid continued interest from the institutional investors, and the retail.
The company has now got the gold standard for an industry that for too long has innovated unenthusiastically and at turtle’s pace. People who in some days used to say “wait for this or that company to get its act together” are now seeing that the car manufacturers whose models adorned their children’s rooms have been left behind by Tesla. They are in fact, industrially more than six years away. These are the rules that command the systematic exploitation of economies of high scale.
