The Morgan Stanley team raised their price target on Tesla shares by 60% to $400, from $250, and recommended investors move to an “overweight” holding. The shares were recently up more than 9% and the S&P 500’s best performers.

  • The new price target is the most bullish on Wall Street, according to FactSet data.

Tesla has been building a supercomputer, dubbed Dojo, to analyze vast amounts of visual data in order to train its electric vehicles to drive autonomously.

The first building block of the supercomputer, a collection of cabinets with thousands of chips, came online in July. Morgan Stanley said Dojo would help accelerate the adoption of Tesla’s planned self-driving robotaxis, while Tesla could also sell software and hardware to third parties.

Dojo computer could add $500 billion to Tesla’s enterprise value, the Morgan Stanley analysts said.

Tesla’s share price has doubled this year but is well off its all-time intraday high of $414.
