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.

12:52 EDTTSLATesla shares sink after all-wheel drive model unveiling
Shares of Tesla (TSLA) are falling after the company's CEO, Elon Musk, introduced an all-wheel drive model and some autonomous driving features on a number of its vehicles. On October 2, Musk had teased on Twitter that Tesla would "unveil D, something else,' exciting investors. WHAT'S NEW: Musk last night said Tesla would enable consumers to buy an all-wheel drive version of the company's Model S electric vehicle. The all wheel drive feature will increase the speed and efficiency of vehicles, Musk said. It will also enable the cars to drive more effectively in poor driving conditions, the CEO stated. The feature will be offered on the company's new advanced Model S car, the P85D, which will cost $120,000. The feature can be added onto other Tesla vehicles for $4,000. Additionally, Musk announced that all new Model S vehicles will have a number of auto pilot features. Among other capabilities, the new vehicles will be able to change lanes and park on their own, the CEO said. ANALYST REACTION: The updates unveiled by Tesla largely add features already offered by other companies, Merrill Lynch analyst John Lovallo II wrote For example, Mercedes has been offering all wheel drive since 1985, and Subaru offers the technology as a standard feature on almost all of its vehicles, Lovallo stated. Several companies also offer the speed limit reading feature, the analyst reported. Tesla's ability to drive its share price up at will, exhibited by the rise in the stock following Musk's tweet, could create a significant risk for shareholders, the analyst warned. He kept an Underperform rating on the name. WHAT’S NOTABLE: Shares of Mobileye (MBLY), which develops components for automatic driver-assist systems, are falling today. Mobileye investors may be disappointed that Tesla did not offer more advanced autonomous driving features. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Tesla slumped 6% to $242 and Mobileye sank 7% to $50.50.
