Tesla Inc. (TSLA) shares have been on a remarkable journey in recent months, undergoing a resurgence that has seen them double from the multi-year lows seen just a few short weeks ago. This comes on the back of a series of positive news events for the company, including its most recent earnings report, and the upcoming start of production for the highly anticipated Cybertruck.
In early January, Tesla shares were in freefall, leading investors to question whether the situation could get any worse. However, a mere month later and the stock has risen to hit $209 in early trading on Thursday, a clear indication of the positive momentum that has been building behind the company.
The catalyst for this resurgence can be traced back to Tesla’s earnings report a few weeks ago, which showed that the company had beaten its revenue and profit targets. This was further bolstered by news that the Cybertruck was on track to begin production later this year, giving investors a concrete reason to be optimistic about the company’s future prospects.
Moreover, the subsequent earnings conference call, during which CEO Elon Musk noted that demand was outpacing supply following the company’s big price cuts in early January, only served to add to the positive sentiment. “Thus far in January we have seen the strongest orders year to date ever in our history,” Musk said, sending shares soaring the next day and setting the stage for a continued upward trajectory.
The steady climb in Tesla’s stock price was further buoyed by last week’s Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting, at which Fed Chair Jay Powell used the term “disinflation”, sending tech stocks and the broader market higher on hopes of easing rates. This has helped to drive Tesla shares steadily past $200 and set the stage for even more positive news to come.
The next big catalyst for Tesla will be its Investor Day in March, when Elon Musk is expected to unveil his Master Plan 3, detailing his vision for a fully sustainable energy future for Earth. With Tesla’s stock price already on the rise and a steady stream of positive news and events on the horizon, it is clear that the future is looking bright for the company and its investors.
