Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) Stock May Still Be Undervalued
For so long, Tesla (TSLA) was so far ahead of the competition in the luxury-electric market, it saw nothing in its rearview mirror. But recently, other luxury automakers — include Mercedes, BMW, Audi and Jaguar — have been creeping up on the incumbent, with recently or soon-to-be released luxury EVs. While some analysts and investors have expressed concern over growing competition, Tesla is actually still maintaining its wide lead. Not only is Tesla winning the branding game, but the company has actually proved that it’s doing something better than any competitor — battery life.
3-star JMP analyst Joseph Osha believes that “Tesla’s leading competitive position in the electric vehicle market supports [his] positive stance on the stock.” He calls competitors’ (specifically Audi’s) product launches “weak,” which makes him “even more confident that Tesla can hold on to its leading position.”
As a result, Osha rates TSLA stock an Outperform along with a $337 price target, which implies about 45% upside from current levels.
