“We think the recent strong share performance fully reflects the strong demand response seen after the price cuts, as well as a solid execution in 2024,” analyst Patrick Hummel said in a note to clients Monday. “We continue to see Tesla globally leading the race to affordable electric and autonomous mobility, but on a 1-year view, risk/reward looks balanced.”

Tesla shares slid 1.5% in the premarket.
