The recent fortunes of Tesla have been reversed by the Tesla share price jump. Tesla CEO Elon Musk sold stock towards the end of last years, which depressed the stock’s once-highly-flying stock market by more than 10%. This led to choppy trading patterns and a decline in stock prices. As analysts revise their earnings and price targets, the recent announcement regarding deliveries could signal a short-term rally.
