Barclays preaches prudence on Tesla Motors

  • Barclays maintains a cautious approach to Tesla Motors (TSLA -3.2%) after meeting with management, reiterating its Equal-weight rating on the EV automaker.
  • The investment firm thinks the path to margin expansion will be slow and notes Tesla already has the benefit of the doubt on many valuation fronts.
  • It also goes with a more conservative estimate of the grid storage opportunity Tesla sits on, seeing a 20%-25% boost to valuation instead of a clean double.

    Well, no, at least the premium I was referring to represents a strike price of $360 per share, so that's a little over 50% up from today's price.
