Wolfe Research Downgrades Tesla (TSLA:NSD) to Peer Perform

Analyst Coverage Change

Wolfe Research (RANK#45) downgraded Tesla to Peer Perform from Outperform, citing concerns about the company’s valuation and the increasing competition it faces in the electric vehicle market. The analyst’s new rating suggests that Tesla’s stock is likely to perform in line with other companies in its industry.

Wolfe Research’s concerns about Tesla’s valuation are not new. Many analysts have pointed out that Tesla’s stock price has soared to levels that are difficult to justify based on the company’s financials alone.

Moreover, the electric vehicle market is becoming increasingly crowded, with more and more automakers entering the space. Tesla was once the undisputed leader in the industry, but now it faces competition from established automakers such as Ford and General Motors, as well as new entrants like Rivian and Lucid Motors. This competition could make it harder for Tesla to maintain its dominant market position and could put pressure on its sales and profits.
