Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty says despite come similarities, the odds of Tesla and Apple working together are unlikely.
"View Tesla in a way they viewed Apple 20 years ago: a company that thinks differently, that is incredibly innovative in a category that needs a spurt of innovation. That creates investor interest. If there’s a path to profitability and reason to believe scale will continue to increase, then tech investors tend to not care as much about valuation and/or are will to look multiple years into the future when scale and profitability will support current valuation," Huberty wrote in a note to clients.
As of early trading, Tesla shares were marked 0.5% higher at $819.20 each. They have now risen nearly 95% so far in 2020.
