Tesla is up more than 3% this morning  — this, after gaining more than 9% yesterday after a Jefferies price target increase.

Shares are trading at $121.30.

This morning, Virgin CEO Richard Branson wrote a blog post in solidarity with Tesla chief Elon Musk’s moves to block auto dealers from preventing direct Tesla sales.

He linked to a White House petition that is just 9,000 signatures short of reaching 100,000, at which point the White House must respond.
