Elon Musk tweeted Wild $T1mes!, now the question is what does it mean?

Tesla’s market capitalization neared and then surpassed $1 trillion on Monday, marking the company’s 11th year as a publicly-traded corporation. It also places Tesla with Apple, Amazon, Facebook, and Google, all of which have market capitalizations over $1 trillion.

When Tesla’s stock touched $998.22 around lunchtime Monday, the company’s market capitalization surpassed $1 trillion. Tesla’s stock price lingered just around $1,000 before soaring beyond it – a first for the company. The stock ended the day at $1,024.86, up 12.66 percent. The company’s stock price has now surpassed $1,000 per share for the first time.

Several news reports about Tesla pushed the stock higher on Monday, including the announcement that rental giant Hertz, which just emerged from bankruptcy, had agreed to buy 100,000 electric vehicles from the automaker. The $4.2 billion agreement will increase the car rental giant’s electric vehicle offerings to 20% of its global fleet. According to Hertz, Tesla Model 3 vehicles will begin to appear in the rental fleet as early as next month in major U.S. regions and select European locations.

Other optimistic comments on Tesla included Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas’ research note, which stated that the firm was upping its price objective to $1,200 (from $900 earlier) and keeping its overweight rating on the stock.

Separately, according to Reuters, research by JATO Dynamics found that the Tesla Model 3 was the best-selling vehicle in Europe last month, marking the first time a fully electric vehicle has outsold a gasoline-powered vehicle.

The soaring stock price Last week, Tesla announced a net income of $1.62 billion for the third quarter, about five times higher than the $331 million it earned in the same period the previous year. Despite a global chip scarcity and supply chain bottlenecks that have hampered the sector, the record profit was achieved mainly to record sales.

Tesla was able to achieve that record net profitability (on a GAAP basis) despite the fact that its cheaper Model Y and Model 3 electric vehicles accounted for the great bulk of its sales. In the third quarter, the corporation brought in $13.76 billion in revenue, up 56 percent over the $8.77 billion it brought in the year before. In addition, revenue was 15% more than the $11.96 billion reported in the second quarter of 2021.
