Tesla stock (NASDAQ: TSLA) stock found its grove on Friday following a tougher week on Wall Street. The over 4.5 percent pop in stock price is probably going because of the corporate’s strong sales figures out of China for February.
In February, Tesla sold 74,402 units from its factory in Shanghai, including domestic and exported sales. This was a 12.64 percent improvement from January and a 31.65 percent increase from February 2022.

Tesla has been strong in China and has routinely relied on the general production of Giga Shanghai to hold its yearly sales. Although Tesla performs well within the Chinese market, the factory has also been a serious contributor to growth in Europe, because the factory was labeled an export hub by the automaker two years ago.
Overall, Tesla stock has done an amazing job of recovering in 2023 since its drastic fall in 2022. This 12 months, Tesla stock has rebounded roughly 85 percent, reaching the $200 price level once more and hovering around that time for many of February.
Tesla’s stock price rebounded early in 2023 because of the automaker’s substantial price cuts across its vehicle lineup, which have pushed other corporations to make the identical move to stay competitive.
It hasn’t been smooth sailing all 12 months, nonetheless. Following the corporate’s Investor Day on Wednesday, the stock didn’t respond positively because the Street can have been expecting more developments regarding the next-gen platform.
Nonetheless, Tesla investors and permabulls went unbothered, because the event was truly an indicator of what’s going to come for the corporate in the long term and never necessarily what may very well be coming for the remainder of the 12 months.
