Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) set to move past its drama phase?

At times—like, say, this week—that seems hard to believe. After a news-filled appearance on 60 Minutes, for example, Elon Musk said portions of the interview were uncharitably edited. Other portions were, at the least, eyebrow raising. The television interview followed another in which he said the company had a near-death experience not long ago.

But the stock is up roughly 18% in 2018 as the S&P 500 has stumbled, and some analysts think its business—particularly after a strong third quarter—is now poised to take center stage.

“Tesla is enjoying improving fundamentals based on increasingly efficient manufacturing, strong average selling prices leading to better-than-expected cash flow, as well as slow and disappointing competition entering the market,” Oppenheimer analyst Colin Rusch wrote Wednesday. “As Tesla delivers steady cash flow, a new group of investors will begin taking positions, helping drive shares higher.”
