Technology stocks were enjoying brisk gains Monday, with the S&P Technology Index advancing more than 1.0% this afternoon.

In company news, Tesla Motors ( TSLA ) sped higher Monday after Friday saying it delivered 10,300 of its electric-power cars during Q1, topping its prior guidance anticipating around 9,500 vehicles.

Analysts applauded the better-than-expected Q1 sales, with Robert W. Baird today reiterating its Outperform rating and a $275 price target for the stock. Pacific Crest Securities also reiterated its Outperform rating.

But Bank of America Merrill Lynch was less enthusiastic, with analyst John Lovall in a new research note calling the news a "positive surprise" but also "not that impressive" given the company's 9.834 deliveries during the final three months of 2014.

TSLA shares recently were ahead by more than 7% at $205.03 each, backing away from an earlier session high of $207.75 a share. The stock has traded within a 52-week range of $177.22 to $291.42 a share, sliding more than 11% over the past 12 months prior to Monday's rise.
