Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) facing doubts over meeting its production goals

Tesla investors are regaining confidence in a quieter Elon Musk — even as they question the company’s ability to hit its production goals for the second quarter.

The automaker’s stock rose by as much as 4.3% Tuesday and is up by more than 7% over the last four trading days, giving investors a short respite from a tough year for Tesla. Its shares have fallen by about a third so far this year, shaving almost $19 billion off its market value since Dec. 31.

Musk has been largely laying low on Twitter after reaching an agreement in April with federal securities regulators governing his social media use. On Monday, he claimed he was deleting his Twitter account before changing his profile picture to black and his Twitter handle to “Daddy DotCom,” presumably in honor of Father’s Day on Sunday.

The company has produced 1,000 Model 3s on just one day since Musk sent that email, Business Insider reported Tuesday, citing documents describing Tesla’s daily output rate for one segment of the Model 3 production.

Ives said he too doubts Tesla will hit that goal.

Tesla’s goal of producing 360,000 to 370,000 vehicles for the year is a “herculean task,” he said. However, Ives said he estimates Tesla will be able to produce 345,000 to 350,000 vehicles, which would be the closest Musk has ever come to reaching one of his production targets and gives investors hope.

Tesla is set to release its second-quarter production numbers as soon as July 1 and earnings on July 30.
