Piper Sandler raised its price target on Tesla to a street high, saying the electric automaker's push into other areas of clean energy will drive the stock higher.
The firm's analyst Alexander Potter raised his price target to $928 per share, up from $729. That is the highest near-term target among major analysts, but is below where the stock peaked during its rapid rise earlier this month.
The stock finished trading at $917.42 per share on Wednesday, about 1% below Piper's target and nearly 7% above where shares closed on Tuesday. It briefly traded above the target price during the day's regular trading session.
