Investors should buy Tesla shares to ride a company disrupting two giant industries, according to Sterne Agee CRT.

"TSLA is controversial, expensive and risky, but we think that is the price for nearly open-ended growth in a technology innovator targeting trillion-dollar auto and energy markets, where fundamental disruption is taking place in 1) electrification, 2) software/autonomous driving and 3) on-demand transport," Sterne Agee CRT's Rob Cihra wrote in a note to clients Thursday evening.
