(Reuters) – Shares of Tesla jumped over 6% on Monday, getting a lift from a bullish report from Ark Invest, an influential shareholder in the electric car maker.
Ark Invest said in a report on Friday it expects Tesla’s stock price to more than quadruple to $3,000 by 2025. Tesla was last trading at $698 a share.
The asset management company run by Cathie Wood also predicted Tesla’s electric vehicle revenue would reach between $234 billion and $367 billion by 2025.
Tesla’s total revenue in 2020 grew 28% to $31.5 billion.
Popular with retail investors, the Ark Innovation exchange traded fund owns Tesla shares worth close to $2.5 billion. Tesla accounts for about 10% of the $24 billion Ark Innovation fund, making it the fund’s largest investment.
Ark Innovation rose 2.5% on Monday and is up over 200% in the past 12 months.
Tesla is down over 20% from its January record high and is up around 700% over the past 12 months.
