Tesla 'Bringing A Machine Gun To A Knife Fight,' Canaccord Genuity Analyst Says

Canaccord Genuity upgraded Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) for three reasons, analyst Jed Dorsheimer said on CNBC's "Squawk On The Street" Monday. 

The analyst said he expects delivery numbers to lead to greater profitability because of the transition from low-volume, high-price vehicles to high-volume, lower-price vehicles in the form of Tesla's Model Y and 3. 

Secondly, "the 4680 battery will open up capacity that will drive into the solar and storage market," he said. 

Lastly, the analyst compared Tesla to Apple Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL) in terms of brand value.

The Tesla Upgrade: Dorsheimer upgraded Tesla from Hold to Buy and raised the price target from $419 to $1,071. 

TSLA Price Action: Tesla was up 3.19% to $698.51 at last check Monday.
