Tesla stock gets a price target bump to $515 at Piper Sandler
Shares of Tesla Inc. surged 4.4% in premarket trading, extending earlier gains, after Piper Sandler analyst Alex Potter became the second-most bullish on the Street, citing a more upbeat outlook on Tesla Energy and Chief Executive Elon Musk's stock-based compensation package. Potter raised his price target to $515 from $480, while reiterating the overweight rating he's had on the stock for at least the past three years. Of the 37 analysts surveyed by FactSet, Potter is now just the third with a target of at least $500, behind the $800 target of Global Equities Research and just ahead of Jefferies' Philippe Houchois's $500 target. Potter said he now expects Tesla's energy business to eventually exceed $200 billion a year in revenue. He also laid out his forecasts for stock-based compensation expenses, given concerns recently raised in a report in The Wall Street Journal that Musk's stock options awards could cost the company from being included in the S&P 500 . "Importantly, the total expense associated with Musk's plan is known (~$2.3B), so the main question regards the 'timing' of these expenses," Potter wrote in a note to clients. Wedbush's Dan Ives also raised his stock price target on Tesla on Friday, but kept his rating at neutral. The stock has soared 110.9% over the past three months through Thursday, while the S&P 500 has gained 7.8%.

Stock-market benchmarks wipe out weekly gains amid Friday selloff but Tesla is a port in the storm
U.S. stocks on Friday were seeing heavy selling pressure, led by declines in large-capitalization technology-related companies. The selling action managed to erase weekly gains for the Dow Jones Industrial Average , the S&P 500 index and the Nasdaq Composite . On the day, the Dow was off 1.2% at 27,570, the S&P 500 index was trading 1.5% lower at 3,307, well below its 50-day moving average at around 3,343.34, according to FactSet data. The Nasdaq was nearly 1.8% lower on the session at 10,711. For the week, the Dow was down 0.4% for the week, the S&P 500 was seeing a 1.1% weekly decline, while the Nasdaq was on track for a 1.4% weekly loss. A weekly decline would represent the longest such streak since three weekly declines ended Oct. 4 of 2019 for the Dow and the S&P 500. For the Nasdaq, would mark the longest weekly losing streak since the four-week stretch ended Aug. 23, 2019. However, some stocks were maintaining altitude in the market, including popular Tesla Inc. , which was up 3% despite the broad-market downturn.

Apple target price gets a boost at Jefferies
Apple Inc. shares got a price target boost at Jefferies Thursday as analyst Kyle McNealy cheered the company's opportunities in 5G. "Specifically, we see historically low upgrade rates and handset subsidies in the US reversing trend, share gains versus Huawei in Europe, and a massive legacy installed base in China looking to upgrade," he wrote in a note to clients while upping his target price to $135.00 from $116.25. McNealy estimates that the current upgrade rate is about 5% per quarter, which he said is below the perhaps 8% to 10% rates seen from 2014 to 2016. He expects that carriers could get more aggressive with subsidies as they try to compete for new 5G customers to help justify their spending on this new network infrastructure. He's also upbeat about the company's potential in China given that a recent Jefferies survey found that 75% of respondents there were using the iPhone 6, 7, or 8. He has a buy rating on the stock, which is off 1.1% in Thursday trading. The shares have risen 26% over the past three months as the Dow Jones Industrial Average has added 7%.

Oil futures finish higher as OPEC emphasizes commitment to reach full output-cut compliance
Oil futures finished higher on Thursday after the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies emphasized their commitment to reach full compliance with pledged output cuts during a joint committee meeting. "Feeling OPEC has their back, market participants hiked oil prices, with boosted confidence that if things do not get better, OPEC might step in to the rescue," said Bjornar Tonhaugen, head of oil markets at Rystad Energy. Meanwhile, the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement reported more cuts to oil production in the Gulf of Mexico due to Hurricane Sally, which made landfall on the Gulf Coast early Wednesday. About 30.69% of the region's oil output, and 24.73% of natural-gas output, was shut in as of Thursday. On Wednesday, the BSEE had reported shut ins of 27.48% for oil and 29.7% for natural gas. October West Texas Intermediate oil rose 81 cents, or 2%, to settle at $40.97 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.
