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, "In first-quarter 2018, Tesla incurred an adjusted loss of $3.35 per share, narrower than the Zacks Consensus Estimate of the loss of $3.37. The company reported loss of $1.33 per share in the prior-year quarter. During the quarter, revenues also surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate. Tesla produced 34,494 vehicles in first-quarter 2018, up 40% sequentially. This happens to be the most productive quarter its history. The company continues to target weekly Model 3 production rates of 5,000 by July 2018. It is also focused on geographical expansions and acquisitions for growth. The company is rapidly developing a network of superchargers. However, high research and development costs, low number of chargers and high requirement of capital expenditure are some headwinds. Also, the issue of recall is hurting the company." (5/8/2018)
- 2. 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)
