Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) Robyn Denholm newly appointed chairwoman
Tesla shares rose after Macquarie estimated the electric automaker may qualify to join the benchmark S&P 500 index as early as the second quarter of 2019.
“TSLA checks off all the boxes for inclusion except aggregate GAAP profitability over trailing 12 months; we forecast this box to be checked in 2Q19,” Macquarie analyst Maynard Um said in a note Thursday.
The company’s third quarter saw it report a surprise profit, as CEO Elon Musk made good on his promise to start turning regular profits in the last half of the year.
More than $3 trillion in funds are tracking the S&P 500 directly via index funds, according to Standard & Poor’s website.
Tesla shares closed Thursday trading up 0.9 percent following the note.
