This Is Why Tesla Shares Went Up in Today’s Trading

Published on

Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA)

Shares of Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) have fallen by more than 10% since President Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) into law in August. However, according to the viewpoint of one analyst, investors are passing up a chance because of the incentives in the new law. This call contributed to today’s movement in Tesla shares, up as much as 2.1%. The stock managed to keep its gain of 0.8% as of 1:18 p.m. Eastern Time.

Then What?

According to Barron’s, an analyst from Wolfe Research named Rod Lache gave a buy recommendation to Tesla shares today and stated that he believes each share is currently worth $360. Lache had previously assigned a hold rating to the shares, and his price objective indicates a potential gain of 33 percent about Friday’s closing share price.

What’s Next?

The expert thinks that the IRA will serve as a trigger to promote electric vehicle penetration more quickly in the United States. The legislation allows consumers to get tax credits when they purchase electric vehicles (EVs), subject to certain limits that include the vehicle’s retail price and the buyer’s adjusted gross income. However, one restriction was lifted: the expiration of the credit for electric vehicles purchased from manufacturers when they reached a sales milestone of more than 200,000 units.

Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) has long since surpassed that limit, but beginning today, some of the company’s automobiles will once more be eligible for tax incentives for their purchasers. Lache had predicted that EVs would account for 10% of new car sales in the United States by 2025; however, he now believes the figure will be 20%.

The market analyst believes now is an excellent opportunity to purchase Tesla’s (NASDAQ:TSLA) stock because the company’s shares have dropped by more than ten percent since the bill was passed. The maximum retail price of a Tesla vehicle is $55,000, and there are other constraints that customers must consider when making their purchase decision. However, not all Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) models will be eligible for the $7,500 tax credit. The upshot of these trends should be an increase in the number of electric vehicles (EVs) on the road over the next few years, which should be excellent news for the market leader.
