Tesla Takes Over Apple Territory (In Cupertino)

Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) needs lots of new office space for its employees. Serendipitously, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) is in the process of moving thousands of its new employees to a new campus.

Movin' On Up

In a research report Thursday, Trip Chowdhry of Global Equities Research stated Tesla will start occupying Apple's Cupertino offices in 2018 after Apple movies its 12,000 employees from Cupertino and Sunnyvale to its new campus called Apple Park.

In fact, Chowdhry noted that Tesla's Palo Alto offices are overcrowded and overgrown its capacity by a factor of four. Tesla's employees even need to park their cars in the nearby VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW) campus.

Chowdhry reiterated his prior belief that the social media trend has come to an end, and companies like Tesla represent the future.

"Gimmickry innovation is over — I friend you — I poke you — I like you — I comment you [...] etc is over," Chowdhry emphasized.
