Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) CEO Elon Musk gave his annual review and outlook on the company to investors
Tesla’s recent strong run hit a big bump today after the company’s shareholder meeting yesterday. The stock was up nearly twenty percent in the last ten days but fell 3.61 percent a day after CEO Elon Musk gave his annual review and outlook on the company to investors.
“The — sales have far exceeded production, and production’s been pretty good. So we’re actually doing well. We have a decent shot at a record quarter on every level. If not, it’s going to be very close, but we’ve got a shot at a record quarter. And 90% of orders are coming from nonreservation holders, so these are new customers.”
Tesla’s stock has plunged 35% this year, setting the name up for its worst annual performance since its 2010 initial public offering.
However, shares have seen a resurgence in the last week, rallying 23% since touching a 2 1/2-year low earlier this month. The upside comes as analysts in recent weeks have grown increasingly optimistic — a departure from sentiment that hit rock bottom.
Musk, who has in the past made promises about the company that have not fully panned out, also said during the meeting it “won’t be long before we have a 400-mile range car.” As it stands, the longest-range Model S that Tesla offers can achieve 370 miles when fully charged.
He also declared that Tesla might make a move into mining. “We might get into the mining business. I don’t know,” Musk said.

A big black candle occurred. This is bearish, as prices closed significantly lower than they opened. If the candle appears when prices are “high,” it may be the first sign of a top. If it occurs when prices are confronting an overhead resistance area (e.g., a moving average, trendline, or price resistance level), the long black candle adds credibility to the resistance. Similarly, if the candle appears as prices break below a support area, the long black candle confirms the failure of the support area.
During the past 10 bars, there have been 4 white candles and 6 black candles for a net of 2 black candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 21 white candles and 29 black candles for a net of 8 black candles.
