Tesla stock gets second $1,000+ price target, from Argus ResearchThere are now two Wall Street analysts that have targets for Tesla Inc.'s stock of more than $1,000, after Argus Research's Bill Selesky boosted his target by 30% in the wake of the electric vehicle (EV) market leader's . The stock fell 0.6% in premarket trading Friday, after losing 5.4% over the past two days. Selesky reiterated his buy rating and raised his price target to $1,010 from $777. That would make him the second-most bullish on Tesla, of the 37 analysts surveyed by FactSet, behind only Oppenheimer's Colin Rusch, . Selesky said he expects EVs to account for an increasingly larger portion of auto sales, as lower costs for battery packs makes them more affordable to the average car buyer, and Tesla is the "undisputed leader" in the EV space.

The stock has soared 103.4% over the past 30 days through Thursday, while the S&P 500 has gained 14.4%.

XPeng's stock surges after bullish call from Deutsche Bank analystShares of XPeng Inc. surged 3.4% in premarket trading Monday, after Deutsche Bank analyst Edison Yu's bullish call on the China-based electric vehicle maker. Yu started coverage of XPeng with a buy rating and $58 stock price target, which is 30.9% above Friday's closing price of $44.31. He said Yu was part of the "Fab Four" China-based EV makers, which also include Nio Inc. , Li Auto Inc. and WM Motor Technology Group Co. Ltd., that represent an emerging class of auto makers backed by large technology companies and local governments looking to disrupt the auto industry. "[W]e believe our thesis has been playing out both on the ground as sales and brand awareness grow, and in the capital markets where all four companies have seen their valuations rise considerably," Yu wrote in a note to clients. "Along with Tesla , we believe these automakers are increasingly destined to conquer the Chinese auto market, supported by an investor base who is eagerly willing to support this endeavor, leading us to expect multiple winners in the new EV world order." XPeng's stock has soared 116.4% over the past three months, while the S&P 500 has gained 8.3%.
