Morgan Stanley Turns Bullish On Tesla

The catalyst: Morgan Stanley’s analyst Adam Jonas shifted his stance on Tesla, moving the stock from Equalweight to Overweight. He also hiked the price target from $250 to $400, which is nearly 50% higher than current market prices.

The reason: Tesla’s Dojo supercomputer. Morgan Stanley sees the potential of Dojo adding $500 billion to Tesla’s enterprise value. This optimism is rooted in the belief that the supercomputer will expedite adoption rates in mobility, particularly robotaxis, and network services.

Morgan Stanley emphasized the importance of identifying scalable, high-potential ventures that haven’t been fully factored in by the market. The analysts believe Tesla’s Dojo fits this bill perfectly.

According to the investment bank, Tesla’s groundbreaking supercomputing tech sets new standards. Their custom-designed chip, combined with specialized hardware and software, could offer a sixfold cost reduction per computing power unit, thanks to a highly efficient system.

ETFs Soaring On Tesla Rally

When discussing exchange-traded funds with significant Tesla exposure, many instantly think of Cathie Wood’s Ark Innovation ETF ARKK as the primary Tesla-heavy fund.

This perception, however, isn’t entirely accurate. While ARKK boasts a notable chunk of its portfolio dedicated to Tesla – being Wood’s premier investment – there are ETFs out there with an even heftier Tesla allocation.

Leading the pack with the most significant daily gain is The Meet Kevin Pricing Power ETF PP, which surged by 3.2% on Monday. This fund dedicates roughly a quarter of its assets to Tesla.

Hot on its heels is the Consumer Discretionary Select Sector SPDR Fund XLY. With an 18.6% Tesla stake, it witnessed a 2.8% daily uptick.

The Vanguard Consumer Discretionary ETF VCR clinched the third spot, registering a 2.3% daily ascent.

Interestingly, Wood’s other offering, the ARK Autonomous Technology & Robotics ETF ARKQ, found itself in the seventh position. It climbed 2.1% for the day, powered by its 13% Tesla allocation.

Factoring in the Tesla shares sprinkled across both ARKK and ARKQ, these funds’ market valuation swelled by $100 million in just one day.
