What are analysts saying about Tesla stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Tesla stock:

  • 1. Deutsche Bank AG analysts commented, "Incorporating the $1.365 bn capital raise into our model, we now estimate that Tesla will likely end 2017 with $1.8bn in cash, a significantly more comfortable liquidity cushion.. We assume Tesla will produce 22k Model 3 units in 2017, of which 20k occurs in Q4. We then assume 250k Model 3 units in 2018. While our assumption for 2018 growth appears very high. we'd note that Tesla is targeting YE2017 production of 5,000 per week. And Tesla is targeting a YE2018 production run rate of 10,000 per week, or a 500k annualized run rate. Including Model S/X and other variants, our 2017/2018/2019/2020 volume estimates are 122k/350k/500k/650k. For comparison, Tesla is aspiring to achieve 1 MM units by 2020." (3/20/2017)
  • 2. Goldman Sachs Group Inc analysts commented, "We update our model to reflect Tesla's announced capital raise, which included $1bn+ convertible debt/equity raise in 1Q17, vs. our previously forecasted $1.7bn equity raise in 3Q17. This should leave Tesla with a high enough cash balance exiting the year, but we forecast another capital raise is needed in 2018 to maintain a cash balance above $1bn. The impact to our 2017/2018 EPS is a slight headwind given increased interest expense, but our 2019/2020 estimates increase slightly on lower dilution. This also pushes our 6-month price target up slightly to $187, which implies 29% downside potential. Further, we detail feedback to our recent downgrade." (3/17/2017)
  • 3. Robert W. Baird analysts commented, "We view the offering positively as it should help de-risk the Model 3 launch, provide additional capital for Model 3 production equipment and/or investment in the gigafactory, and remove an overhang on the stock. Bears will likely say the deal is too small, although we believe this displays TSLA's confidence in the Model 3 timeline and anticipate shares will move higher. TSLA remains a favorite pick for 2017." (3/16/2017)
  • 4. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Tesla’s adjusted loss in fourth-quarter 2016 narrowed year-over-year but were wider than the Zacks Consensus Estimate. However, revenues for the quarter surged year-over-year and surpassed expectations. Tesla has outperformed the Zacks categorized Automotive-Domestic industry over the last three months. The company is focused on geographical expansions and acquisitions for growth. Tesla also remains on track with its Model 3 production. Moreover, the company is rapidly expanding its charging network and ramping up production to meet the demand for both. However, the company missed its delivery guidance for 2016. The company also faces several headwinds, including high expenses and production constraints. Further, SolarCity’s high debt and cash outflows are concerns, although the buyout is expected to provide integration benefits. " (2/28/2017)
