Is Tesla (#TSLA) one of the “best story stocks of all time?”

One of Whitney Tilson’s analysts thinks it is and got his first 100-bagger in the name (94 as of today).

What’s next - pullback to a 50-bagger or a continued rally and a 150-bagger for him?

As the #StockMarket edges towards euphoria, Whitney Tilson sees similarities with the Internet bubble in the late 1990s.

However, as frothy as today’s market appears, it’s nowhere close to the insanity at the peak in 2000. Rather, it reminds him “of early 1999 – just before the NASDAQ doubled!”
