The shares of electric auto giant Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) saw a massive surge of 12.58% on Monday as the tech stocks on Wall Street experienced a rebound.

Undoubtedly, the stock has seen some glorious days in 2020 rising by about 400% forcing it to initiate a 5-for-1 stock split that came into effect on August 31.

Tesla (TSLA) Stock Surge Shows Resilience, Compliments Gigafactory Upbeat
With the latest surge in Tesla (TSLA) shares, the shares have shown great resilience amid pressures shares have been experiencing in recent times. Shares have come under pressure after the company announced it was raising $5 billion through a new stock offering, and after the company’s largest outside shareholder trimmed its position.
The share uptick also shows a complementary position with respect to the strides from Tesla’s Gigafactories. Coinspeaker earlier reported that the auto giant Tesla (TSLA) is set to start shipping out its Model 3S cars made in its Shanghai Gigafactory. Europe and Asia have been tipped to be the major markets for Shanghai-made cars as the company looks to cut down on shipping costs.
Besides the readiness of the Shanghai Gigafactory, Tesla (TSLA) is also advancing its bid to start production in its Berlin Gigafactory by 2021. The construction of the Berlin car plant is already on track as Germany’s economy minister Peter Altmaier has pledged full support to the Elon Musk-led company. The Berlin Gigafactory is billed to roll out about 500,000 cars per year when production commences.
These advances can potentially reposition the company’s shares to see more gains as the weeks roll by.
