RBC Capital Markets analyst Joseph Spack ended his downtrend on Tesla Inc. shares TSLA,
Thursday with an upgrade of the sector from underperform. Tesla shares have gained 2.9% in Thursday trading. “There is no beautiful way to put it other than that we got TSLA shares completely wrong (even though our fundamental approach was not far off),” he wrote in a note to clients. “Our biggest example was how TSLA could capitalize cheaply by leveraging its share price and increasing the capacity and growth of the fund.” He said this dynamic would enable Tesla to easily meet its future growth while traditional car manufacturers would have to rely on considerable cash from their current operations to fulfill their electric-vehicle ambitions. “In short, the high stock price is somewhat self-sufficient for TSLA’s growth potential,” he wrote. In addition, Tesla’s stock is the “ultimate spirit pendulum” according to Spack, and the company serves as a “poster child” for electric vehicles at a time when momentum for the category is emerging in many areas. Finally, Spack set a sector to be rated on the stock because it stated that its “current valuation assumes high growth assumptions and strong execution.” He raised his price target for customers to $ 700 from $ 339 in his note. Tesla shares have gained 78% in the last three months as the S&P 500 SPX,
