What are Wall Street analysts saying about Tesla stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Tesla stock:
  • 1. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "TSLA’s shares jolted yesterday on news that CEO Elon Musk was considering" taking the company private. Mr. Musk provided an option for existing shareholders to be bought out at $420/share or stay on as private investors. Based on our ownership analysis, the top 10 mutual fund holders own 41% of S/O, and insiders" account for 25% (Mr. Musk’s 20% stake and Tencent’s 5%). It is possible to envision a scenario whereby the top holders decide to stay on as private investors, as many believe the inherent value is substantially higher compared to today. In that hypothetical scenario, with insiders not selling, Tesla might only need to sell 57.6MM shares (or 34%) or $24BN. While this amount is large, and we do not know details of how it could be financed, it is theoretically possible." (8/8/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Though Tesla’s net loss widened in the first-half 2018, its revenues improved. In July, the company repeatedly produced 5,000 Model 3 cars, while producing 2,000 Model S and Model X vehicles per week as well. After achieving the weekly target of 5,000 Model 3 car production, Tesla is now aiming to produce 6,000 Model 3 vehicles per week by late August. The company is focusing to grow its energy storage deployment and aims to deploy at least three times of what is deployed in 2017. Also, to deal with the shortage of lithium-ion batteries, the company is building Gigafactory to produce the batteries in collaboration with various partners. However, high research and development costs, higher tariffs, supply chain problems and widening loss in each quarter are few concerns for Tesla." (8/7/2018)
