Elon Musk, the renowned CEO of Tesla, is optimistic about the future of his company. In response to a comment from Ron Baron, the billionaire CEO of Baron Capital, Musk weighed in on what it would take for Tesla to achieve a multi-trillion-dollar market capitalization.
Baron, who has consistently shown faith in Tesla since 2014, predicts that the company’s shares will continue to rise and reach a market cap of $4 trillion within the next decade. He also believes that Musk’s other venture, SpaceX, could potentially surpass Tesla in terms of size and impact in the 2030s.
However, Baron’s ambitious market cap projection for Tesla faces challenges. Although Tesla’s shares have climbed by 67% this year, they have not fully recovered from their decline in 2022. The worst month for Tesla since April was in October, when the stock experienced a 20% drop following disappointing third-quarter results and dampened optimism surrounding the Cybertruck.
It is evident that Tesla has significant growth potential, but achieving a multi-trillion-dollar market capitalization will require several remarkable accomplishments. Nevertheless, Elon Musk remains confident in his company’s capabilities.
