In the following video, Motley Fool industrials analyst Blake Bos takes a look at Tesla Motors' (NASDAQ:TSLA) current share price, and why it may be disconnected from reality. Shares of the company are up 117% year to date, with a sharp pop on earnings news after the company announced its very first profitable quarter. These increases bring the company up to a market cap larger than FIAT, and potentially only slightly smaller than Lexus would be if it were a stand-alone company. Blake compares sales for these two brands to current sales for Tesla, and shows investors what kind of already-baked-in growth Tesla's share price would have to hit in order to justify its current valuation. Finally, Blake gives his overall take on Tesla, and whether it's a buy, a hold, or a sell at today's prices.
