11:52 EDTTSLATesla advances following Deutsche Bank upgrade
Shares of electric car maker Tesla (TSLA) are rising after Deutsche Bank upgraded the stock to Buy from Hold and raised its price target on the shares to $310 from $220. WHAT'S NEW: This morning, Deutsche Bank analyst Rod Lache upgraded Tesla, citing guidance issued by the company on its second quarter earnings conference call. On the call, Tesla's management indicated that its growth trajectory will be steeper, its product mix much richer, and its costs significantly lower than previously thought. Lache increased his growth forecasts as a result, taking up his FY15-FY17 volume estimates to 60,000, 100,000, and 129,000 units from previous views of 51,000, 60,000, and 83,000 units, respectively. The analyst added that even these forecasts may prove conservative since Tesla expects to end 2014 and 2015 with 50,000 and 100,000 units of capacity. The firm sees a clear path to 500,000 units of annual production by the end of the decade and expects growth to continue as Tesla continues to seek additional production capacity. In terms of product mix, Deutsche expects Tesla sales to gravitate more towards the Model S and X versus the Model 3, thus increasing their profitability. In addition, Tesla is targeting battery pack costs of $150/kWh by late 2017 versus about $250/kWh today, and they see costs falling below $100/kWh within ten years. If achieved, these levels could provide an outright cost advantage for Tesla's electric vehicles compared to their gas operated competitors. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Based on the improved outlook, the analyst now expects EPS in the $27 range by 2020, up from his prior view of $20. Lache raised his 12-month price target on the shares to $310 from $220. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Tesla rose $12.54, or 5%, to $260.67. Including today's advance, the stock is up approximately 70% over the past 12 months.
