Tesla Inc. announced that it would offer a five-for-one stock split. The electric carmaker's shares climbed following the news.
The stock split would lead to Tesla paying a four share dividend to each stockholder of record on August 21. The payment will come forth on August 28, and shall be reflected in Tesla's share price on August 31.
Analyst Ben Kallo at Baird reaffirmed the neutral rating on Tesla stock while maintaining his price target of $1,658, which is about 21% higher than Tuesday's closing price. "We believe the stock split is a recognition of the fact that the market is increasingly influenced by individual investors, including those looking to gain exposure to next-generation transportation," Kallo mentioned in a note to clients. "The overnight share strength is indicative of investors electing to purchase stocks which are positioned to benefit from the current upgrade cycle for technology around transportation, renewable energy, and the software enabling both."
