One of Tesla's Biggest Skeptics Says Buy on Recent Dip

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has made bold claims about the company's third-quarter performance

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has made bold claims about the company's third-quarter performance

In a blog post dated September 7, Musk said Tesla is about to build and deliver more than twice as many cars as it did last quarter, without being specific about whether the company would accomplish this feat in the third or fourth quarter.

Tesla's Gigafactory, its lithium-ion battery-production facility, "creates a significant barrier for competition and manufacturing capability" that should benefit Tesla over the long term, Kallo and Katter said.

Shares were under pressure last week on news of senior personnel changes and after CEO Elon Musk was filmed smoking marijuana during a live interview.

Morton, who is walking away from a $350 000 base salary and a $10 million new-hire stock grant that would vest over four years, said he believed "strongly" in Tesla and that he had no disagreements with the company's leadership or its financial reporting.

However, other analysts are skeptical that Tesla can accelerate or even maintain this production pace long enough to be profitable.

Tesla is dropping two of the seven colors it had offered to customers as it tries to streamline production. The least expensive Model 3 now available starts at $49,000, according to Tesla's website.

Tesla has struggled to make the change from small-production luxury auto brand to a full-fledged mass-market automaker.

Tesla shares have lost more than 25% of their value since early August in the immediate wake of Musk's "funding secured" tweet.

On Monday, however, Tesla's stock bounced back after two positive analyst reports. Musk has promised that as it sells more Model 3s the company will turn a sustained net profit starting this quarter. The growth, Musk said, represents "the most mind-blowing growth in the history of the automotive industry". Over half a million individuals worldwide reserved the Tesla Model 3, and the all-electric vehicle manufacturer was not ready for that volume of demand. Tesla hasn't been able to get producing 5,000 cars this quarter. So, Tesla stock is receiving contradictory opinions, to say the least. Analysts at Baird, meanwhile, reiterated their connected of a take care of ranking on the stock and named it a "fresh use", announcing "solid fundamentals might perchance perchance perchance simply composed force shares elevated", with merchants underestimating ends in the 2d 1/2 of the yr.
