What are Wall Street analysts saying about Tesla stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Tesla stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Over the past month, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for Tesla’s annual earnings has been widening. The company has made an announcement to downsize its workforce to become sustainably profitable without compromising on its Model 3 sedan production goals. 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 a Gigafactory to produce the batteries in collaboration with various partners, including Panasonic. However, a weaker dollar and higher tariffs, supply chain problems and widening loss in each quarter are few concerns for Tesla. Also, over a year, its shares have underperformed the industry it belongs to." (7/3/2018)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "We initiate coverage of Tesla with a Hold. In our view, the company is in a race against time. Our comprehensive checks on Model 3 production point to manufacturing problems, particularly at the battery cell level, module assembly and factory automation lines. As a result, we don’t foresee Tesla reaching full production until 12 months from now. If the company does manage to hit its production targets, we suspect it will be sacrificing margins and profitably as we believe the yields on the battery packs are still low and will take substantial time to ramp. Long-term, several of the technological advantages in EVs, namely materials, cooling systems and battery management are shrinking over time. Net, we believe the current valuation ($48BN Mkt. Cap or 127x P/E) does not reflect the issues raised above." (6/1/2018)
  • 3. Evercore ISI analysts commented, "important piece" of the bullish, but a cautious view is now warranted, Galliers wrote in the downgrade note. Specifically, it is clear that production of the Model 3 sedan in the third quarter was weaker than expected with 260 units produced as opposed to an original target of slightly more than 1,500 units.At this point, there is no indication of whether Tesla fixed whatever production issues it may have had. Investors may need to wait for clarity on the company's third-quarter earnings report on Nov. 1, the analyst wrote. As a best-case scenario, Tesla's management team would say that production of the Model 3 is an "S-Curve" and hasn't changed substantially.However, a more likely scenario to play out would be Tesla's management unable to have 100 percent visibility on the Model 3 ramp until it is able to produce more than one thousand cars a week — which is unlikely to happen until the end of November."In the meantime, we urge caution on 3rd party interpretations of 20 second Instagram feeds from CEO Elon Musk," (10/29/2017)
