Tesla says it has 'largely overcome' Model 3 bottlenecks and insists production is on track
03 May, 2018, 16:02
Tesla did not break out a cash flow calculation as it has in previous quarters. It lowered its full-year capex projection to US$3bn from US$3.4bn. Five analysts have issued estimates for Tesla's earnings. Excluding one-time items, Tesla lost $3.35 a share, while Wall Street analysts had forecast Tesla to lose $3.58 a share, on $3.22 billion in revenue. Analysts had not expected so much spending, predicting hundreds of millions of dollars less in so-called cash burn, according to Thomson Reuters data.
Meanwhile, Tesla no longer has a head of sales and service; Musk said that he won't replace Jon McNeil, who left to join Lyft Inc.as chief operating officer. That means, even if some would-be Model 3 owners decide to drop out because of the lack of a lease option, the bottleneck to deliveries remains just how quickly the automaker can actually produce them. The company ended the quarter with a cash balance of $2.67 billion. During the same quarter in the prior year, the firm posted ($0.69) EPS.
On a positive note, TSLA stock arrives at this earnings report date on an upward trend.
Tesla said its net loss amounted to $4.19 per share.
He also provided some stock advice for traders who speculate on the company that Musk himself has admitted is something of a "drama magnet". He then went on to call out journalists for reporting negatively on the state of Tesla'sAutopilot, stating that it was saving lives and it was irresponsible for journalists to write something that might inspire someone to turn the system off.
Tesla shares have taken a hit as a result. The target for gross margin is expected to remain at around 25 percent, but Tesla surprised itself by ending up with a significantly higher selling price per vehicle than it had initially projected. The transaction was disclosed in a legal filing with the SEC, which is available through the SEC website. The disclosure for this sale can be found here.
