Musk says Tesla (TSLA) could be valued more than $4 trillion in the future

Musk projects that the company could be worth more than Apple and Saudi Aramco combined.


Tesla (TSLA) appears to be very confident following Wednesday's Q3 2022 earnings report. Mercurial founder Elon Musk jumped in on the ensuing earnings call expressing his confidence in his automobile maker, boasting that the company would soon be worth more than Apple and Saudi Aramco combined. Crunching some math numbers, that's an implication that Tesla will soon be worth more than $4 trillion USD at some indeterminate point in the future.

Musk's claim is based on his belief in Tesla as the most valuable company in the world, as he notes that the company can eventually exceed Apple and Saudi Aramco's combined market caps. Exactly when in the future is unknown, but Musk noted more than once during the call that he maintains a belief that Tesla can continue to grow at an annual rate of 50 percent or greater.

Tesla continues to work towards amping up its own automobile line, while also working to get a workable Cybertruck and Tesla Semi on the market. The latter is expected to be ready to hit the road at some point in 2024.

Tesla touted record earnings for the most recent quarter, despite missing on revenue projections, according to Wednesday's Q3 2022 earnings results. Despite that, Tesla notes that, with a strengthened dollar and after overcoming supply chain issues, the company will trend positively going forward.

        Mass transit will never happen in the US, its too political and can not serve the people. Just look at that crazy multi billion dollar waste in California, who needs mass transit the most.

          somehow we managed to build an interstate highway system everywhere. Mass transit is entirely doable. We just choose not to do it correctly.

      "Could be, yes, with the help of a lot of government subsidies, and definitely with some corporate tax breaks, and creative restructuring, and of course I'll own at least 20% of that, bring on the clean energy future!"

        It will also be at the expense of investing our time as a society in sustainable and realistic future transportation - like public transit!

      I say it could be worth 57 undecillion in the future. It could also be worth $0.0000000000000001 in the future. The neat thing about the future is nobody knows!
