Analysts: Tesla’s Investigation Costs Will Be Manageable and 3 More Research Notes to Read

Tesla Motors (NASDAQ:TSLA): Barclays is expecting that the investigation into Model S fires will likely impact sales by about 10-20 percent, using some previously highly publicized investigations and recalls as a basis. The firm believes that the monetary costs to Tesla will be manageable but that trimmed forecasts have led the firm to reduce the price target to $120 from $141 on the shares, though they remain Equal Weight-rated.

tsla-20131120 Inc. (NASDAQ:PCLN): Goldman Sachs has added the Buy-rated to its Conviction Buy List to reflect increased upside potential from a European recovery, domestic and mobile share gains, and competitive advantages from hotel relationships. The firm raised its already above-consensus estimates and its price target on to $1,500 from $1,260.


Lululemon Athletica (NASDAQ:LULU): Credit Suisse’s checks of Lululemon’s website show that supply chain and inventory issues are moderating as online apparel in-stock levels and SKUs have substantially increased. The analyst expects a re-acceleration of comparable sales to high-single or low-single digits; Lululemon shares are Outperform rated with a $78 price target.


Twitter Inc. (NYSE:TWTR): Cantor Fitzgerald has downgraded shares of Twitter to Hold from Buy while maintaining a $32 price target for the shares. Cantor says that the current valuation of Twitter shares is “excessive” and adds that it prefers owning Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) instead.
