Do Tesla [TSLA] Analysts Consistently Manipulate TSLA Downward?

July 2nd, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

There's an interesting thing that happens every quarter. Once solid estimates for Tesla's quarterly production and delivery numbers are in, short sellers and critics jump to the next quarter and typically claim that delivery will fall off tremendously because pent-up consumer demand has been exhausted and sustainable new demand is going to be much more limited

How Wild & Useless Are Tesla Analyst Forecasts? Morgan Stanley Edition

May 24th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Morgan Stanley put out an updated forecast on Tesla stock [TSLA] in the past week. It included close to nothing of any use. Many in the media must have recognized it was useless, so they picked one part of it to focus on for their own fun and games. They picked the lower end of the financial institution's Tesla stock price forecast and stuck with that


Do Wall Street’s Tesla Analysts Understand The Company?

May 4th, 2019 | by Matt Pressman

After the company's bumpy first quarter, Tesla's share price has experienced a dizzying rollercoaster ride. All across financial news media outlets, the narrative surrounding the company continues to feed off of FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt). And much of it appears to be echoed by Wall Street analysts who cover the stock. Some influential investors, however, see things differently

Tesla Crushes Records, Wall Street Expects More — Miracles?

January 3rd, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

I have to admit, it's pretty hilarious sometimes to see how Wall Street responds to Tesla news. It's also hilarious to see the wild and ridiculous nonsense some Tesla [TSLA] short sellers or professional trolls spout. I understand that people live in different internet and ideological bubbles these days, but still, the degree to which some grumbling, mumbling critics grumble and mumble about Tesla (and CleanTechnica) cracks me up from time to time


5 Points & 4 Charts To Check Andrew Left’s U-Turn From Tesla Bear To Tesla Bull

October 26th, 2018 | by Matt Pressman

One of Wall Street's most famous short sellers, Andrew Left of Citron Research, has been trying to make a mockery of Tesla for years. Five years ago Left crowed, "By the time this [Model 3] product is even approaching market, there will be multiple other 200-mile range plug-ins that have been out for years." In turn, Left bet heavily against Tesla — sure that the electric automaker was doomed. Then, it all changed

The New York Times interview of Elon Musk released late in the night of August 16, 2018, clobbered Tesla’s stock price the next day, resulting in a fall of more than $30 a share by the end of Friday’s after-market trading and a single-day transfer of wealth of over a billion dollars from Tesla’s investors to the stock’s short sellers


Tesla “Leaves The ‘Experts’ Confused And Struggling”

August 17th, 2018 | by Matt Pressman

As the saga to take Tesla private continues to play out, Elon Musk continues to befuddle so-called 'experts' on Wall Street. Both Musk and his electric car company, Tesla, don't fit neatly into their narratives. Inc.'s Geoffrey James says, "I've been working in business journalism for over 20 years and I've never seen any high tech leader who creates such a polarized reaction as Elon Musk." 


Tesla’s Advantage: Technology — “A Decisive Barrier For Legacy Carmakers”

July 12th, 2018 | by Matt Pressman

On Tesla's last quarterly earnings conference call, CEO Elon Musk largely avoided questions from Wall Street analysts in favor of retail investor (and YouTube personality) Galileo Russell. In turn, analysts largely dismissed Tesla's rosy outlook for the road ahead. However, one Wall Street analyst is gaining a newfound appreciation for Tesla's inherent advantages over legacy carmakers


The Great American Fracking Bubble

May 21st, 2018 | by Guest Contributor

In 2008, Aubrey McClendon was the highest paid Fortune 500 CEO in America, a title he earned taking home $112 million for running Chesapeake Energy. Later dubbed “The Shale King,” he was at the forefront of the oil and gas industry's next boom, made possible by advances in fracking, which broke open fossil fuels from shale formations around the U.S. What was McClendon’s secret?


Why Pierre Ferragu & New Street Research Raised Tesla [TSLA] Price Target To Record $530 After Tesla Conference Call

May 11th, 2018 | by Matt Pressman

After Tesla's latest quarterly earnings call in which Elon Musk turned his back on Wall Street analysts in favor of questions from a 25-year old YouTuber, analysts are turning their back on Tesla's CEO. Almost across the board, analysts disliked Musk's comments (or lack thereof) on Tesla's recent earnings call. There is one outlier, though — New Street Research's Pierre Ferragu
