Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) is down 3.8% to trade at $901.55 at last check, despite the electric vehicle (EV) giant reporting better-than-expected fourth-quarter earnings of $2.54 per share, as well as a revenue beat. Plus, the company projected deliveries to grow 50% year-over-year in 2022, though it noted supply chain issues are likely to persist and delayed the production of its Cybertruck until 2023.

Analysts are responding to the update with enthusiasm, however. The security received at least six price-target hikes this morning, including a lofty one from Canaccord Genuity to $1,200 from $1,040. Analysts are still relatively split towards TSLA, with 10 calling it a "buy" or better, while 11 say "hold" or worse. Meanwhile, the 12-month consensus target price of $982.38 is a 10.5% premium to current levels.

Despite the negative price action, options bulls are coming out of the woodwork as well. So far, 135,000 calls have crossed the tape, which is double the intraday average. Most popular is the weekly 1/28 1,000-strike call, followed by the 850-strike put in the same series, with positions being opened at the latter.

On the charts, Tesla stock has experienced some volatility since surging to an Oct. 4, record high of $1,243.49. The shares bounced off long-time support from the 120-day moving average earlier this week, but are now pacing for their first close below this trendline since late July. In the last nine months, TSLA has added 31.9%, though.
