A new stock price for Tesla Motors could put the company on a path to the $200 billion valuation that some analysts have been predicting for months.
That’s because analysts believe Tesla’s future earnings potential could be significantly higher than those of rival carmakers like Ford, GM, and Toyota.
Tesla has already raised more than $1 billion in funding, making it one of the most valuable companies in the world, according to S&P 500 research.
Tesla’s shares are currently trading at a valuation of about $250 a share.
The new stock target, if implemented, could also put Tesla at a competitive advantage with other automakers like Nissan, Honda, and Ford, said analysts at BNP Paribas in a research note.
While Tesla has yet to announce its stock price targets for 2017 and 2018, it’s likely that it will be higher than the $150-per-share target set by the company for the second half of 2017.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has previously said that he thinks its market cap is worth $150 billion.
Tesla has also been a popular choice among tech executives, as well as investors who want to avoid buying stock in companies like Apple, Microsoft, or Google.
“I think there’s a lot of momentum for Tesla,” said John M. Lee, chief investment officer at the hedge fund J. Paul Getty & Co. in a note to clients.
If Tesla’s stock price stays low and Tesla continues to ramp up its production, “I think the company is going to be in a much better position,” said Lee.
According to the S&s, the current valuation of Tesla is based on a valuation model that assumes that the company will be able to continue producing cars at a healthy pace, with annual revenues of $1.6 billion and profit margins of 15% through 2020.
The company’s growth in recent years has also given it a high valuation.
According to BNP’s latest estimate of Tesla’s earnings, the company generated $18.7 billion in profit in the first quarter of 2021, a figure that includes a $4 billion gain in its share price in the quarter that ended in June, according the S &)s note.
The company also expects to post a profit of $7.5 billion in the second quarter, which includes a gain of $2.6 million in the share price.
In terms of future earnings, Tesla expects to deliver more cars than those it currently sells.
In fact, the new stock targets for the next two years show that Tesla will be selling more cars in 2021 than in 2018.
At the moment, Tesla’s market cap stands at about $150 trillion, which makes it one the largest companies in history, according a recent report from S&am.
