Tesla Motors (NASDAQ:TSLA) CEO Elon Musk has some ambitious aspirations for the electric-car maker. His aspirations for an affordable car, in particular, have received a lot of attention. Given the company's execution so far, it seems likely that Musk can deliver on his promise at some point in the future -- but is this car already priced into the stock?
Fool contributor Daniel Sparks explains in the following video that the affordable car is priced into Tesla's stock -- but only to a degree. In a previous article, he explained that the company could generate as much as $880 million in operating income if it met the goals Musk has laid out. But now a recent report form Bloomberg shows signs that the company may be aiming even higher.
