by

The upcoming car manufacturer received an unsolicited B- credit rating from Standard & Poor due to "considerable uncertainty" about its long-term prospects. The rating, six levels below investment grade, was derived independently of Tesla and comes after over $2.3 billion was successfully raised by the company in March to fund a new battery factory.

Shares in Tesla have risen 41 percent this year.

Compared with larger, more established automakers, the company is less likely “to successfully adapt to competitive and technological displacement risks over the medium to long term,” [S&P analysts Nishit Madlani, Dan Picciotto and Joseph Lin wrote in the report].
With Elon Musk leading the company, seems to me that the opposite would be true.
