After meeting with an electric vehicle trade group in Beijing, Piper Jaffray analyst Alexander Potter says Tesla "has little to fear" from Chinese brands, at least based on the current competitive landscape. Further, China's 2019/2020 electrical vehicle volume quotas will probably be unattainable, which will likely force underperforming manufacturers to buy credits from high-volume sellers like Tesla, assuming it builds a local factory, Potter tells investors in a research note. The analyst thinks nobody in China can compete with Tesla based on branding and performance. He keeps an Overweight rating on the shares with a $386 price target. Tesla closed yesterday down $4.97 to $350.60.
