TSLA – Tesla Motors, Inc.

Fundamentals Previously closed at 226.89
Day’s high 226.50
Day’s low 235.50
P/E ratio NA
EPS -6.90


Analysts opinion Most analysts maintain a “Strong Buy” rating for the stock. Tesla is expected to unveil its Model 3 today, and many potential buyers have lined up for pre-orders. Model 3 is expected to be delivered by 2017. Credit Suisse has announced today that it restates the positive rating for the stock. Several financial Institutions including Norges Bank, Royal London Asset Management Ltd and Perigon Wealth Management LLC have increased their stake in Tesla.
However, there are a few concerns regarding Tesla. Given the track record of Tesla regarding car deliveries, most analysts believe that the Model 3 deliveries for pre-orders will take place only by late 2018. There is also increasing concerns regarding the pricing. Tesla is in negative territory with respect to profits, so managing to deliver model 3 at the promised rate of $35,000 would be highly challenging to the firm. Also, Tesla being a niche player, expansion into a mass-market is a risky venture.
Sentiments Investor sentiments seem to be positive with the upcoming release of Model 3. If Tesla can pull this off positively, its positioning in the market will see a huge change. It will become an environment friendly and mass-market company and a trend-setter in the auto industry which would be the icing on the cake.
Social Media Pulse The stock has 50% lower chatter than usual.

This change in trend is a major concern because this positioning threatens to erode UA’s premium brand image and ultimately its long-term growth potential.” he says.
