Analysts and Battery Experts Optimistic About Tesla and TSLA Stock

According to Steve LeVine, Medium’s editor at large, battery experts believe Tesla would soon distance itself from its competitors.

On the battery technology day, LeVine expects Tesla CEO Elon Musk to announce cost parity between Teslas and combustion vehicles.

If achieved, the cost parity would allow Tesla users to avoid paying a “large premium over gasoline-driven models.” It would also act as a significant catalyst for TSLA stock in the longer term.

Musk’s major announcement on the battery technology day still remains uncertain. But if it is about the cost parity, LeVine emphasized he “may rattle the whole of the auto industry.”

Investors in the stock market appear to be taking the chances that Musk would shock the automotive industry.
