Not only is the Chinese market excellent for luxury cars, but also polluted air is driving a government push for electric cars. After a modification to the back seat, giving it an executive status since vehicle owners ofluxury cars in China typically don't drive their own cars, the Model S looks like an excellent fit for the massive market.

Here Are The Four Reasons Twitter's Stock Has Gone Crazy (TWTR)
1. Twitter is increasing its targeting on the platform, reaching Facebook levels of targeting accuracy. Twitter had a blog post explaining that it is going to be able to track usage from the web to the Twitter app and serve ads.
2. Twitter's ad exchange MoPub is going to sell ads outside of Twitter. This is a big expansion, and a big opportunity to generate revenue from more than just Twitter, which remains a relatively small service.
Before we move on to reasons 3 and 4, we should note that these previous two bits of news were made possible when the quiet period was lifted. Once Twitter was free to talk about its business publicly, it was able to provide clarity to investors.
3. RBC analyst Mark Mahaney jacked his price target to $60 this morning, the highest on the street. He was at $33 before, so this is a serious increase, and it's driving the stock today. In his note, Mahaney said, "We are increasing our estimates based on the positive results of our advertiser survey, our industry checks, and our increased conviction in Twitter’s advertiser tools and user functionality improvement potential."
4. There isn't a lot of Twitter stock out there to buy. Peck says Twitter didn't release a lot of stock in the first place, so there's a supply and demand issue. He says that a few shareholders have big chunks of the stock, but they're not selling, making it harder for people who want to buy.

10:37 EDT TSLA Tesla shares have reached attractive entry point, Deutsche says
Tesla's (TSLA) stock has reached a favorable entry point, Deutsche Bank wrote in a note to investors earlier today. WHAT'S NEW: At current levels Tesla's stock is not pricing in sales from the company's mass market vehicles, Deutsche Bank contended. Expected to be launched in 2017, these vehicles could cause the auto maker's sales volume to at least triple, the firm contended. Tesla also has a number of other upcoming potential positive catalysts, according to Deutsche Bank. These include a favorable resolution of the probe by the U.S. government into fires involving a number of Tesla vehicles, strong orders from China, and further increases in the company's profit margins, the firm contended. Deutsche Bank expects the results of the federal probe to be favorable to Tesla, and it kept a $200 price target and Buy rating on the shares
