·1 min read

Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) is trading higher Wednesday on continued momentum following the company's recent Hertz deal. The stock is also being lifted by bullish commentary from Baron Capital's Ron Baron and a price target increase from Goldman Sachs.

Hertz announced that it placed an initial order of 100,000 Teslas by the end of 2022. Beginning in early November, customers will be able to rent a Tesla Model 3 from Hertz. The company also announced plans to install thousands of Tesla supercharging stations throughout its location network.

Speaking about Tesla on CNBC Wednesday morning, Baron said "I think we'll probably be invested for another 10 years at least."

The billionaire investor praised Tesla CEO Elon Musk and said the biggest risk to Tesla investors moving forward is the health of Musk.
