TSLA Tops $500 For First Time

With a market cap over $90 billion now (almost as big as VW - the world's largest market cap automaker - which sold 10.9mm cars in 2019, compared to TSLA's 367,500...)

TSLA shares have gone even more parabolic-er, opening up over 5%, topping $500 for the first time in its history, as the algos run the stops from last week's highs...

So what's driving the surge?

Even though Oppenheimer & Co analyst Colin Rusch raised his target on the stock to $612 from $385

“While TSLA has stumbled through growing pains, we believe the company has reached critical scale sufficient to support sustainable positive FCF,” Oppenheimer’s Rusch wrote.

“At the same time, we believe the company’s risk tolerance, ability to implement learnings from past errors, and larger ambition than peers are beginning to pose an existential threat to transportation companies that are unable or unwilling to innovate at a faster pace.”

Not everyone is a gung-ho...

Whatever is driving TSLA higher seems to be the same thing that is forcing AAPL higher every day...

Is this how the TSLA story ends? Like VW's record-shattering short-squeeze in 2008?
