Tesla Motors (NASDAQ:TSLA) Names Top Pick For 2017 by Baird Equity Research- First NBC Bank (FNBC), Celadon Group (CGI)

Tesla Motors, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) moving in diverse range of trends as shares traded at $213.69 with falls of -0.46%. Tesla Motors Inc. (TSLA) was named top pick for 2017 by Baird Equity Research Friday, with analyst Ben Kallo forecasting that Tesla Energy and Model 3 production will beat expectations. “We believe TSLA’s energy storage business and growth opportunity is not currently reflected in share prices,” Kallo wrote in a note.

Baird believes battery sales are increasing and should get another boost from the battery production ramp coinciding with the launch of the Model 3, the all-electric sedan Tesla hopes to sell late next year for about $35,000. “We recommend accumulating shares ahead of additional details being reported about TSLA’s current battery costs and density metrics, and believe the upcoming Gigafactory tour on January 4 will be a positive catalyst for the stock,” he wrote.

The company’s Powerwall 2 battery offers a competitive pricing advantage on a per kilowatt basis, and should help Tesla grow its share of homes and small business consumers, he wrote. The company’s fourth-quarter delivery number might create short-term volatility, but the stock should move higher, he said.

To knowledge the question of growth, it has annual sales growth for the past five year of 103.20%. While past twelve months price to sales ratio recorded as 5.83 and price to cash ratio remained 11.21.
