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, "Throughout 2018, we believe Tesla rapidly depleted its high-end backlog of Model 3 orders (lead times have come down significantly for those versions throughout 2018, yet standard battery remains at 4-6 months) and as a result, we could see a steep decline in Model 3 orders either in 1Q19/2Q19 as we wait for the standard battery to become available. With Tesla indicating that over 75% of the 63k Model 3 deliveries in 4Q were from new orders rather than from the existing reservation and it was limited" to mid-to-high end variants, we conclude that ~96% of the 420k net reservation list is for individuals who are waiting for the standard battery. While this is a rough calculation, with no line of sight on when the standard battery version will come out, we remain concerned about the future level of demand for Model 3 in 2019." (1/22/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Recently, Tesla has reached the milestone of making 1,000 of its Model 3 sedans in a single day. After attaining this feat, the CEO wants all employees of Tesla to focus on maintaining that production rate and lowering down costs. 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. The company is focusing to grow its energy storage deployment and aims to deploy at least three times of what is deployed in 2017. Over the past six months, shares of Tesla outperformed the industry it belongs to. Moreover, over the past one month, the Zacks Consensus Estimates for both the current quarter and current year earnings are moving upwards." (12/31/2018)
