Tesla breaks $2,000 barrier ahead of 5-1 stock split

Tesla stock market

Tesla shares (TSLA) reached an all-time high on Thursday, breaking the $2,000 threshold and trading as high as $2,003.16 per share.

After opening at $1,860.68, prices quickly skyrocketed more than $100 during morning trading. The likely reason for the upward trajectory is due to investors eager to get a piece of the pie before the 5-for-1 stock split happening later this month.
