With these stellar stock gains, Tesla became the most valuable automaker by market cap in the United States.

The 14-day relative strength index technical indicator on the company’s daily stock price chart is 72.9, indicating an overbought condition.

Model 3 initial production to begin in July

In its 1Q17 shareholder letter, Tesla informed investors that the initial production of its Model 3 would start in July 2017. To avoid any delays in its Model 3 production, the company has been in touch with Model 3 parts suppliers to ensure timely deliveries.
