Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) shareholders and analysts are gearing up for the electric automaker’s second-quarter delivery figures
Tesla may release second-quarter delivery figures in the coming week that sate Wall Street’s expectations. But the automaker’s future profitability and questionable underlying demand remain fundamental wildcards.
That’s what a cadre of equity analysts at investment giants from Goldman Sachs to Barclays have conveyed to investors in recent days as Tesla is expected to release quarterly delivery figures in early July.
“While we believe 2Q19 should be fine — and the company likely achieves volumes near FactSet consensus — we do believe 2H19 (and beyond) volume estimates look high considering there are fewer levers to pull to stoke demand going forward,” the Goldman analyst David Tamberrino, who rates Tesla a “sell,” wrote in a note June 20 note.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk, as well as bullish equity analysts covering the stock, have sought to put concerns over underlying demand to rest.
In an email to employees last Tuesday, Musk said Tesla was close to setting a record for the number of vehicles delivered in one quarter,
“I think we expect demand to — we are seeing demand returning to normal in Q2,” Musk said on the company’s April earnings call in response to an analyst’s question. “And it might be a little better than normal. It’s — I don’t have a crystal ball, so it’s hard for me to say, but my impression right now is that demand is quite solid, quite strong, yes.”
