The Price of Tesla Automotive Company Fell 5.5% on Wednesday

During the recent rally for Tesla, Elon Musk reclaimed the title of richest man in the world. Wednesday saw Musk lose $5 billion. The broad use of Tesla’s auto chargers and widespread confidence about what the artificial intelligence boom may entail for big tech’s top and bottom lines have all been positive factors for the company.

According to Dan Levy, the growing multiple of Tesla stock has been the main driver of the stock’s $300 billion run-up. While other AI-related stocks have experienced favourable earnings revisions that increased market valuation, Tesla’s near-term fundamentals haven’t changed.

The stock of Tesla (TSLA) -5.46% was once more lowered. Wall Street is finding it difficult to explain the stock’ recent astounding increases.

However, he failed to anticipate the extraordinary surge at the beginning of the year.

In a similar vein, Barclays analyst Levy came to the same conclusion. On Wednesday, he raised his price objective from $220 to $260 while downgrading Tesla stock to Hold from Buy.

In his report, Levy sounded a little more concerned about the auto industry. In 2024, he predicted $4 in earnings per share. According to FactSet, the $4.80 Wall Street consensus is roughly accurate.

Recently, Wall Street has simply not been able to keep up with Tesla stock. The current average price objective for shares is $204, or around $55 less than Wednesday’s closing price of Tesla.

It might close somewhat on Thursday. Following the downgrading, shares have dropped 3.3% to roughly $251 per share in premarket trade. Futures for the S&P 500SPX -0.52% and Nasdaq CompositeCOMP -1.21% were both down roughly 0.3% and 0.4%.
