Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) bulls and bears took an interesting turn after Tesla’s 2Q earnings last week
The long-fought battle between Tesla (TSLA) bulls and bears took an interesting turn after Tesla’s 2Q earnings last week. Tesla missed big on its gross margins and reiterated its prior forecast for its 2019 delivery numbers. The numbers were somewhat overshadowed by the resignation of CTO JB Straubel. Straubel has been with the company since its founding and is credited for developing many of the company’s key battery technology innovations.
Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas wonders if Tesla can continue to fund its growth ambitions without requiring additional external capital. Meanwhile, the analyst reiterates an Equal-weight rating on TSLA and with $230 price target, which implies about 6% downside from current levels.
