Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) Investor attention has shifted to market opportunity

Tesla Inc. shares rose 3% in early trade Wednesday before paring some of those gains, boosted by a bullish note from Wedbush suggesting investor attention has shifted to the electric-car maker’s strong market opportunity and away from its Model 3 production problems.

Analyst Daniel Ives, a longtime Tesla bull, said the production delays that have weighed on the company and its stock TSLA, +10.39%  for the past year appear to have been resolved, demand looks strong heading into 2019 and the company is “poised to generate improved profitability and cash flow that puts the risk of a capital raise in the background for now.”

Tesla is now on track with its road map for European Model 3 delivery and shipments appear to be on schedule, with the window for customers in a host of countries now opening.

The analyst reiterated his outperform rating on Tesla stock and $440 price target, which is 49% above its current trading level.

Overall, the bias in prices is: Sideways

The projected upper bound is: 362.05.

The projected lower bound is: 292.82.

The projected closing price is: 327.44.


A big white candle occurred. This is generally considered bullish, as prices closed significantly higher than they opened. If the candle appears when prices are “low,” it may be the first sign of a bottom. If it occurs when prices are rebounding off of a support area (e.g., a moving average, trendline, or retracement level), the long white candle adds credibility to the support. Similarly, if the candle appears during a breakout above a resistance area, the long white candle adds credibility to the breakout.
During the past 10 bars, there have been 3 white candles and 7 black candles for a net of 4 black candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 29 white candles and 21 black candles for a net of 8 white candles.
