Tesla [TSLA] Crushes Deliveries, And Other Thoughts

July 2nd, 2020 | by Frugal Moogal

Well, I created my own best and worst case scenarios for production and deliveries, used what I could find and a number of estimates to nail down numbers that I felt were accurate, and this morning Tesla released the actual numbers. In that last article (mostly Tesla's press release), Zach noted that the numbers would probably be a reason for some of our authors to produce long pieces on them, and

Analysts: Tesla’s Best Equipped To Weather The Pandemic (Video)

May 19th, 2020 | by Guest Contributor

Discussing COVID-19 on the company's Q1 earnings call, Elon Musk confessed that the economic impact of the pandemic "will cause great harm not just to Tesla, but to many companies. While Tesla will weather the storm, other companies will not.” It turns out, Tesla has a long history of succeeding against the odds, but this time the odds are pretty darn long

Tesla has had a lot of success in China with its EVs and its new factory. However, Tesla Model 3 vehicles that are made in China as well as Model S and X vehicles made in the US aren't the only thing Tesla is selling there. These Tesla beverages in China look refreshing and delightful

Tesla Learns To Dance To Elon Time

January 30th, 2020 | by Paul Fosse

After the Tesla earnings call, I was thinking, what has really changed? Sometimes the questions are more important than the answers. Consider what we learn from examining the following questions that most investors had 2 years ago as the Model 3 production ramp began


Tesla [TSLA] FUD: Warranty Claims

January 30th, 2020 | by Frugal Moogal

I wrote a lot of this article about two months ago. After the prior earnings call, a number of bears dug into the 10-Q and decided that Tesla had played with warranty numbers to attempt to show a profit. I ended up not publishing it because by the time I had done all of the research to feel pretty solid in my conclusion, it seemed like no one was pushing that Tesla had inappropriately played with its warranty accrual numbers anymore


Tesla Growing Quickly While Spending Little Capital

January 29th, 2020 | by Paul Fosse

In reading Tesla's 4Q Earnings Release, what struck me immediately is that even though they added a lot of production capacity in 2019, both expanding Fremont considerably and building the entire Shanghai Gigafactory in 2019, they spent a little more than half as much on capital as they did in 2018, when they were ramping Model 3 but not building any major factories

Why Tesla [TSLA] Is On A Tear β€” “No Other Auto Company In The World That’s Growing That Quickly.”

January 14th, 2020 | by Johnna Crider

Tesla is growing like no other company in the auto industry and is pretty much on a tear. This is a good thing.Β In late 2019, as in four days before 2020, CNBC had Steve Westly, a former Tesla board member and a member of the Westly Group, on its Power Lunch show. They got right to the point with this question: "What's changed in 90 days?"


Shark Tank’s Barbara Corcoran Loves Her Tesla & Elon Musk’s Roughness

January 10th, 2020 | by Johnna Crider

In a Yahoo Finance video discussion about Tesla and its stock, Barbara Corcoran of Shark Tank cuts right to the chase: "I own a Tesla and don't say anything wrong to me about it." She also points out that she invests in Tesla as well. Her thoughts on Tesla's "slumping after a double downgrade" are that these guys are just "hedging their bets" and that they don't want to be wrong. "It's all nonsense," she says


Tesla & Robotaxi Economics: The Network That Optimizes The Machine

January 9th, 2020 | by Rahul Sonnad

There is a long-standing argument about whether Tesla is a car company or a tech company. This argument is typically made in the context of how Wall Street should value the company. If Tesla is just a new kind of carmaker, it should be valued at something significantly less than its annual revenue β€” maybe 25% to 50%, like Ford and GM. Alternatively, if Tesla is a tech company, then it could be valued significantly higher. Google, for example, is trading at about 6 times its revenues today, Facebook at 8, Microsoft at 9, and Salesforce at 10 times. Tesla trades at around 3 times its revenues with some profits, while Uber and Lyft trade around 4 times revenues and have never been profitable

January 8th, 2020 | by Vijay Govindan

Barron's noted on January 7th, 2020, that Tesla had become the most valuable auto company in the history of America. Let me repeat: Not just currently. We are talking about the most valuable American auto company since America was born. Congratulations to Elon, Tesla, and the team for unlocking this achievement!
