Your Rundown for Monday, Dec. 21, 2020

Outlook for History-Making Tesla

To answer our readers question, the entire markets wobbly this morning, and if the mainstream financial media is to be believed, the meltdown is the result of a new strain of the coronavirus in the U.K.

TSLA shares? Down about 4%. Keep in mind, however, Tesla stock reached an all-time high Friday at $695 per share.

Notwithstanding, Tesla -- the worlds most-shorted stock -- got an endorsement from Wedbush analyst Dan Ives who said in a client note: Heading into year-end 2021, we are seeing a major inflection of EV demand globally with our expectations that EV vehicles ramp from ~3% of total auto sales today to 10% by 2025.

We believe this demand dynamic will disproportionately benefit the clear EV category leader Tesla over the next few years, especially in the key China region, which we believe could represent ~40% of its EV deliveries by 2022 given the current brisk pace of sales.

Surprisingly, Mr. Ives TSLA rating is neutral and not a buy.

Clearly, competition is increasing across the board on the EV front with a slew of domestic players in China, Europe and the U.S. going after Teslas core EV stronghold, he says, although we believe the market is growing at a brisk rate that will yield multiple winners going after the EV jackpot.
