2 reasons for Tesla’s stock surge
First: US stock market analysts expect that the new Shanghai plant will be instrumental in Tesla’s growth. Last month, the company launched the first model made at its Shanghai plant. China is a big market. Tesla will benefit from production there.
Second: Tesla announced its financial results last month, saying that for the first time in 10 years, profits were made on an annual basis. Tesla’s results have been better than analysts had anticipated.

Some people are also losing out on the rise in Tesla’s stock. Traders who are more likely to fall in a stock, sell the stock first and buy it when prices fall. These are called short sellers. Tesla shares are the shortest sale in the US. But, due to the boom in recent times, $ 8 billion (Rs 56,800 crore) of short-sellers have been sunk.
