FRIDAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
Wall Street has also been distracted by red-hot Tesla TSLA, +0.46% shares, up 12% this week. The stock has now more than doubled over three months. While some warn of nosebleed territory, consumer advocate Ralph Nader said Tesla could end up triggering a market crash.
To be sure, other stocks may be getting far less attention, which brings us to our call of the day from Wedbush analyst Dan Ives who has bumped his Apple AAPL, +0.48% share price target to $400 from $350. He says Wall Street is underestimating a renaissance for the iPhone maker, and the “magnitude of the 5G upgrade cycle.”
