Tesla is now more valuable than the bottom 492 companies in the S&P 500, without being a member of the S&P 500 index.

At its intraday peak of $2,021.99 on Thursday, Tesla sported a valuation of more than $378 billion, just above Walmart’s market capitalization of $368 billion, according to data from YCharts.com.

The electric vehicle manufacturer has surged more than 45% since it announced on August 11 that it would implement a 5-for-1 stock split in late August.

Year-to-date, Tesla has surged 378%. Investors have continued to bid up the company after it recorded its fourth straight quarter of profitability last month and is now eligible to be included in the S&P 500 index.

But in a world of near-zero interest rates, growth is scarce and investors are willing to pay up for it. Case in point, Tesla featured a price-earnings multiple of 1030x as of Thursday.
