Furthermore, there are several factors that have impacted the growth of Tesla in the past few weeks and contributed to Tesla’s sudden growth. According to recent reports, rental giant Hertz, which has just emerged from the brink of bankruptcy has announced to buy over 100,000 electric vehicles from Tesla. This is a huge number that will definitely give Tesla the capital boost that it requires, and post this announcement, Tesla shares jumped vertically high.

Another factor was the validation from Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas, who was raising the price target for Tesla from USD 900 to USD 1,200 and re-iterating its rating in the global market.

The third and the most significant reason was the share market’s momentum with Tesla as last week, the electric car company announced to have reported net income of around USD 1.62 billion in its third quarter which is almost a five-fold increase from what it earned last year in the same quarter.

All of these factors contributed to Tesla’s growth over the past few weeks, successfully making it a trillion-dollar company.
