The biggest news behind EV stocks rising today has to do with market leader Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA). The EV company was upgraded from neutral to outperform at Credit Suisse. Analyst Dan Levy points to the current price being an attractive entry point. He also maintained his $1,025 price target for the stock.

With Tesla on the rise, other EV stocks appear to be moving in symphony with it. It’s also worth pointing out that EV stocks have been taking a beating these last few weeks. That means investors could be picking up shares on those lower prices, which would also explain today’s increases.
