Shares of the EV giant will hit $2,600 by 2029, as per the latest projection from Ark Investment Management. 

Tesla is expected to reveal its much-awaited robotaxi in early August (read more) which her hedge fund forecasts will make up about 90% of its enterprise value by 2029. 

Meanwhile, electric vehicles could approximate a quarter of total sales and ~10% of Tesla’s earnings potential, as we believe the robotaxi business will have much higher margins.

Ark Investment Management is convinced that $TSLA will officially launch its robotaxi service in less than two years. Tesla stock is currently down 30% for the year. 

The bear case for Tesla share price

Cathie Wood’s investment management company even sees Tesla share price hit $3,100 (bull case) before the end of this decade. 

Its bear case, however, is about $2,000 per share and that too if the robotaxi catalyst is included in the model. Without it, $TSLA may be capped at $350 only through 2029, as per Ark Invest. 

In terms of vehicle production, the investment firm expects a 45% annual growth in the coming years. Ark also expects stationary energy storage and Optimus humanoid robot project to help Tesla stock climb through 2029. 

Shares of the electric vehicles company do not currently pay a dividend. 

Morgan Stanley recommends buying $TSLA

On Wednesday, analysts at Morgan Stanley reiterated their “overweight” rating on Tesla. Their $310 price objective signals potential for about 75% upside from here. 

The investment firm is bullish on $TSLA as it expects the multinational to eventually launch a smartphone. Their research note reads:

From our continuing discussions with automotive management teams and industry experts, the car is an extension of the phone. The phase is an extension of the car. The lines between car and phone are truly blurring.

All in all Morgan Stanley is bullish on the Nasdaq-listed firm’s commitment to edge computing and generative artificial intelligence. Its analysts remain constructive even though Tesla Inc came in shy of Street estimates in its fiscal first quarter.

On the earnings call, however, CEO Elon Musk said the Austin-headquartered firm will begin producing new models by late 2024 or early 2025 versus in the back half of 2025 he had guided for earlier.
