07:42 EDTTSLANew Street-high target of $465 gives Tesla shares a charge
Shares of Tesla Motors (TSLA) are jumping after Morgan Stanley boosted its price target by $185 to $465, a new high among Wall Street analysts. The company is positioned to dominate as car sales shift to robot-driven and shared vehicles, the firm argues. SELLING MILES: Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas raised his price target for Tesla Motors to $465 from $280, well above Friday's closing price of $243.15. Today, ten trillion vehicle miles are driven annually, with almost all of them delivered by "companies practicing a 100-year-old business model of human-driven, privately owned, internal-combustion vehicles," Jonas tells investors in a research note. General Motors (GM), Ford (F), Toyota (TM) and Honda (HMC) are among the publicly traded traditional carmakers. The market of selling cars is going through some fundamental changes, argues Jonas. He believes Tesla is "uniquely positioned" to dominate given its expertise in autonomous technology and networked machine learning. An app-based, on-demand mobility service could more than triple Tesla's potential revenues by 2029, the analyst estimates. He expects Tesla over the next 18 months to roll out formalized business plans on shared mobility, allowing the electric vehicle maker to sell miles in addition to cars. His new price target of $465 reflects Tesla's potential to lead the revolution of the shared mobility public transportation hyper-structure and more confidence around the commercial viability of Tesla Energy. ROBOT-DRIVEN: Jonas expects nearly all car sales to eventually shift from human-driven, individually-owned cars to robot-driven and shared cars. If Tesla wants to succeed on its mission of accelerating the world's transition to sustainable transport, the move to a shared mobility model is critical, he argues. All of Tesla's cars are electric, connected, and able to "learn" through over-the- air firmware updates at any time, which no other established automaker can claim today, Jonas writes. MARKET REACTION: Investors are buying into what Jonas is arguing. Shares of Tesla are up 5%, or $13.10, to $256.25 in pre-market trading. Over the past three months through Friday's close, the stock is down 2%.

12:37 EDTTSLAOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks began the session with modest losses, despite a stabilization in the Chinese yuan overnight. Relatively in line data on producer prices and industrial production did not hurt the situation, but there was also the lack of a catalyst. As a result, the market has drifted throughout the morning session moving up as much as 0.4% before paring its gains. The market is now struggling to hold onto its meager gains. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., both industrial production and PPI beat estimates, with industrial production increasing 0.6% and PPI increasing 0.2%. Consumer sentiment for August fell to 92.9 in the preliminary report from the University of Michigan survey, after slipping to 93.1 in July from 96.1 in June. Meanwhile, Euro-area GDP rose 0.3% last quarter. Germany's economy grew 0.4%, Italy's 0.2%, while France stagnated. The Baker Hughes North American rig count report is out at 1 p.m. ET. COMPANY NEWS: General Electric (GE) announced an agreement to sell GE Capital Bank's U.S. online deposit platform along with all deposits of GE Capital Bank, including online savings accounts, online CDs and brokered CDs, to Goldman Sachs Bank USA (GS). Under this agreement approximately $16B of deposits will be transferred to GS Bank. Separately, Goldman Sachs is selling its Colombia coal mining division to privately held Murray Energy. General Motors (GM) is boosting production of its larger SUVs and trucks, according to Reuters. The automaker could make as many as 60,000 additional vehicles for the 2016 model year to capitalize on rising demand. Meanwhile, GM is recalling 73,424 small cars because improper wiring could prevent the roof-mounted driver's side air bag from deploying after a crash, the Associated Press reported. SunTrust analyst Robert Peck said he believes Twitter (TWTR) could announce a permanent CEO as early as next week. Peck continues to think Twitter is likely to unveil a "Triumvirate of leadership" with Jack Dorsey as CEO, Adam Bain as COO and Evan Williams with more board influence, possibly Chairman. Tesla's (TSLA) secondary offering of 2.7 million common shares was priced at $242 each, according to an SEC filing. That represents an increase from the 2.1 million shares Tesla had previously announced for the offering. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers following their earnings reports were department store retailers Nordstrom (JWN) and J.C. Penney (JCP), which gained 5.35% and 5.95%, respectively. Also higher was WuXi PharmaTech (WX), up 5.45%, which reported earnings and entered into an agreement to be acquired by a management buyout group for around $3.3B. Cyberark Software (CYBR) also gained 1.8% after being upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo. Among the noteworthy losers was El Pollo Loco (LOCO), which dropped 18% after its Q2 revenue fell short of analysts' estimates. Also lower were shares of King Digital (KING), which declined nearly 12% after reporting quarterly earnings and forecasting gross bookings for the third quarter $460M-$485M, citing "recent trends." The company said fourth quarter gross bookings would be "fairly consistent sequentially." JPMorgan downgraded King Digital this morning to Neutral from Overweight citing an elevated risk profile following the results. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 42.43, or 0.24%, to 17,450.68, the Nasdaq was fractionally lower by 2.96, or 0.06%, to 5,030.59, and the S&P 500 was up 3.46, or 0.17%, to 2,086.89.
