No doubt, Tesla Motors (NASDAQ: TSLA ) has been one of the best investment opportunities of the past year. Profits and production are up, and the stock has tripled. Can it really get better? Does Tesla deserve to trade for more than $100 a share?
Sure, says Tim Beyers of Motley Fool Rule Breakers and Motley Fool Supernova in the following video. Tesla is still in the early stages of the second phase in a three-phase strategy to create a mass-market carmaker capable of competing with the likes of Ford and General Motors.
If CEO Elon Musk succeeds, today's $11 billion market cap will become a distant memory in 10-15 years. Instead, Tesla will rank near what Ford ($59 billion) and General Motors ($47 billion) command as of this writing. Not bad as far as investment opportunities go, right?
To get there, Tesla must disrupt the auto industry in much the same way that Apple disrupted rivals when the iPhone and iPad redefined how we think about computing. Plan to hold for a decade or more if you buy at current levels, Tim says.
