Tesla shares was downgraded by Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs.
Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas lowered the rating on the electric carmaker’s stock to underweight from equal-weight. Jonas also slashed his price target to $650 from $680.
Although Jonas was optimistic on Tesla’s role in the adoption of electric vehicles, he also thought that the recent rise in the share price to over $1,000 may not capture some emerging risks. Many of these risks, according to Jonas, are long-term, and could potentially affect fundamentals (growth and profitability) in a “materially negative way." The analyst said, "Among the many risks facing Tesla at this time, we would rank risks related to U.S.-China relations at the very top”.
Goldman Sachs analysts downgraded Tesla to neutral , as shares were trading above their upwardly revised 12-month price target of $950. "We'd look to become more positive on Tesla stock again if we had more confidence in the near to intermediate term trajectory in fundamentals, or if valuation became more attractive," Goldman analyst Mark Delaney said.
