Why Mobileye (MBLY) Stock Is Gaining Today

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Mobileye (MBLY) was gaining 11.5% to $47.97 Wednesday following a positive research note from Morgan Stanley (MS) .

The software company could be worth $100 a share in a bull-case scenario, according to Morgan Stanley analyst Ravi Shanker. The company can reach those prices by 2020 if it can keep close to its current 80% market share, Shanker wrote.

The analyst also said that keeping its current pricing, "capitalizing on the aftermarket opportunity from insurance/regulatory support," and growing its market penetration in China would help Mobileye reach $100 a share.

"These are not heroic assumptions - all a $100 price needs is for MBLY to hold its current position on the above factors. In the absence of credible new competition, we believe this is possible," Shanker wrote.
