    WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BE WORTH $500 BILLION?

    WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BE WORTH $500 BILLION?

    ​On August 31st Tesla‘s latest bull run ended when the stock closed at an all-time of $498.50 per share. At that price, the market cap value of Tesla was $464 billion, an amount greater than Ford, GM, Daimler, Volkswagen, and former number one Toyota put together. With Tesla approaching $500 billion, a level reached by only a handful of companies most notably today’s tech giants, Apple, Amazon, Google, Facebook, and Microsoft, we at Cornell Capital Group thought it would be a good time to examine what is required to be a $500 billion market cap company. Before investors conclude that Tesla is a $500 billion company, they should consider what the tech giants looked like when they reached that level.
