  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "In third-quarter 2018, Tesla’s earnings per share and revenues surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimates. Also, both earnings and revenues improved year over year. In third-quarter 2018, Tesla produced 80,142 vehicles. This included 53,239 Model 3s, and 26,903 Model S and Model X vehicles. Deliveries to customers amounted to 55,840 Model 3 along with 27,660 Model S and X. These numbers are close to estimates and indicate that the company is making good progress despite hurdles.

  • 2. 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)
