Wedbush analyst Craig Irwin maintained an Outperform rating on Tesla Motors (NASDAQ: TSLA) and lowered the price target from $295.00 to $275.00.

The analyst added the asking prices for battery materials is climbing according to Wedbush's “various sources.”

Shares of Tesla are down as much as 4.9 percent at $203.00 on Thursday. The stock is currently trading at $208.30, down 2.24 percent from Wednesday's close.
