After a brief pullback last week, it seems like the shares of electric automaker Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) are on their way back up the charts. In fact, the stock is already up 7% to trade at $918.31 in electronic trading this morning, after Piper Sandler hiked its price target all the way to $928 from $729, predicting the company's next big success will be in the energy generation and storage innovation space.

Prior to Piper Sandler's price target hike, TSLA's consensus 12-month target price stood at $492.33 --  a considerable discount to current levels. Adding to this, only four analysts in coverage consider TSLA a "strong buy" compared to eight "holds," and 11 "sell" or worse ratings.

On the other hand, the options pits are incredibly optimistic. TSLA sports a 50-day call/put volume ratio of 1.49 at the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Cboe Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX). This ratio sits in the 92nd percentile of its annual range, suggesting a much bigger-than-usual appetite for bullish bets of late. 

Should this morning's gains hold, Tesla could be eyeing yet another record close, eclipsing last week's closing high of $887.06. It's no secret the equity has been on a roll lately, with several recent pullbacks captured by the 10-day moving average. For the year, TSLA has more than doubled, and year-over-year, its added roughly 179%.
