The Tesla (TSLA) - Get Tesla Inc Report bulls continue to run wild, probably because it's no more than a momentum tech name. 

"My issue with Tesla is that I don't know how to value it, but I will tell you this -- it's not being valued as an auto stock it's being valued as a tech stock, just like Netflix (NFLX) - Get Netflix, Inc. Report and Amazon (AMZN) - Get Amazon.com, Inc. Report , so the Tesla bulls continue to buy it," explains TheStreet's founder and Action Alerts PLUS Portfolio Manager Jim Cramer. 

Tesla shares were upgraded to buy from hold on Tuesday by Berenberg, citing the company's "disruptive potential" in the auto industry. The company could have a "near monopolistic" opportunity to gain market share and out-perform rivals, Berenberg writes.

The firm sees Tesla shares surging about 30%.
