Tesla Inc (TSLA) Stock Rise After Q4 Earnings Report

Tesla Inc (TSLA) Stock Rise After Q4 Earnings Report

(NASDAQ:TSLA) were released by: Usnews.com and their article: "Tesla Is Last In the Driverless Vehicle Race, Report Says" published on January 18, 2018 as well as Usnews.com's news article titled: "Tesla Logs Zero Driverless Miles in California in 2017" with publication date: February 02, 2018.

Analysts expect Tesla, Inc.

As expected, Tesla saw some pretty big losses this quarter, mostly related to Model 3 delays.

The company also thanked "Model 3 suppliers and our customers, who have continued to be such great partners and advocates, while patiently waiting as the ramp continues to accelerate", but it is hard to say how much longer customers would continue to remain patient, especially keeping in mind that Tesla has pushed back the delivery time for the Model 3 by as much as 9 months, and that too, without mentioning it in the earnings call. The same period from previous year had a net loss of $0.69 per share and $2.28 billion in revenue.

The firm's future hangs on the Model 3 sedan, but it has so far struggled with production bottlenecks. He noted that on Model 3 production, the company's semi-automatic lines are working faster than the fully-automated lines, but the company's engineering firm in Germany has developed a fully-automated line that will be delivered to Tesla's facilities at the end of March. But investors are concerned about the Model 3 because it was supposed to be the mass-market auto that could fly quickly off the assembly line and make money for the cash-burning company. Having been steady, Model 3 reservations have also seen an uptick, though Tesla does not give a specific number for how many people are waiting for the auto. That's down to Model 3 drivers paying to use the chargers, in contrast to Model S and X owners who have received free Supercharging. Combined Model S and Model X net orders in the quarter were just shy of Q3's all-time high.




In Q4, Tesla deployed 143 MWh of energy storage products, growing 45 percent from Q4 2016. The non-GAAP automotive gross margin, which excludes stock-based compensation and zero emission vehicle credits, was 13.8%. Given that Tesla's first quarter ends in less than two months, management must have a high level of confidence in this target. By the end of its second quarter, the Model 3 production rate will be 5,000 a week. Musk has hinted that after the currently-unannounced Model Y is revealed, Tesla will develop a pickup truck. This will drive year-over-year revenue growth that will "significantly exceed" its 55% year-over-year revenue growth in 2017, Tesla said. The quarter after the Model 3 was introduced, Tesla revealed that it had only delivered some 266 vehicles.

"This year, we are starting a new chapter of our journey", Musk said.

When investing geniuses David and Tom Gardner have a stock tip, it can pay to listen. Zacks Investment Research downgraded Tesla from a "hold" rating to a "sell" rating in a research note on Wednesday, October 18th.

"In fact, Musk called it 'expensive, ugly and unnecessary", and added that even though he's still clearly set against its inclusion in Tesla's autopilot designs, it's still possible his own bet in this area isn't 100 perhaps correct. Finally, Ariose Capital Management Ltd bought a new position in shares of Tesla during the 3rd quarter worth approximately $30,733,000.
