Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) ‘Smarter’ version of auto drive ready in about six weeks

A Tesla Inc. vehicle will soon be able to drive itself for short distances, be driven from a smartphone in some cases, and even follow its driver “like a pet,” Chief Executive Elon Musk said Thursday on Twitter.

An advanced Tesla TSLA, +2.06% “Summon” feature will be ready in about six weeks and it will work on cars made in the past two years, Musk said in a series of tweets.

Introduced a couple of years ago, “Summon” is part of Tesla’s Autopilot, its suite of advanced driver-assistance systems. At its current iteration cars can park themselves in some instances or move short distances.

The upgrade would be a “slightly smarter version” and by next year “a Tesla should be able to drive around a parking lot, find an empty spot, read signs to confirm it’s valid & park,” Musk tweeted.

Tesla shares rose 2% on Thursday, poised to end the week with a gain around 4%. The stock is up 11% this year, outstripping gains of 2.1% and 2.4% for the S&P 500 index SPX, +1.06% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, +1.06% in the same period.

Overall, the bias in prices is: Upwards.

Note: this chart shows extraordinary price action to the upside.

The projected upper bound is: 385.78.

The projected lower bound is: 303.69.

The projected closing price is: 344.73.
