Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) has received a vote of confidence from Canaccord Genuity analyst Jed Dorsheimer, who stated that the EV maker is moving towards an “Apple-esque ecosystem” of products that are focused on sustainable energy.
Dorsheimer noted that Tesla is poised to change the battery power market “radically,” thanks to its industry-leading technology and production capacity. The analyst also noted that Tesla’s successful transition to a mass-market automaker with the Model 3 and Model Y, as well as later products, would allow the company to “attack and conquer another trillion-dollar market in energy generation and storage.”
“Tesla’s focus on first-principle engineering we believe will radically change the battery market, enabling the company to further the lead in BEVs and expand into the solar and home energy markets with its Powerwall products,” the analyst wrote.
Dorsheimer raised his TSLA rating to “Buy,” an upgrade from his previous “Hold” rating. He also boosted his price target by 155% to $1,071.00 per share.
