On Wednesday, November 1, 2017 Tesla Released Third Quarter 2017 Financial Results.
The Company reported GAAP revenues of 3.0 billion US-Dollar, up 30% from the prior year period.
Shares themselves have gained more than 40% this year.
Currently there is a delivery problem of the Model 3!
The main reason of the three-month delay in the supply of the new Model 3 was due to manufacturing problems at Gigafactory 1, which is located in Nevada. The problems have arisen in the battery module assembly line.
Even though it is difficult to predict when new Model 3 will appear, Tesla Inc. currently expects to achieve a production rate of 5,000 Model 3 vehicles per week by late Q1 2018.
In total, automotive revenue grew 10% as compared to the third quarter of 2016, representing a 4.5% increase in Model S and Model X volumes.
Tesla delivered 25,915 Model S and Model X vehicles and 222 Model 3 vehicles in the third quarter. A total of 26,137 were delivered.
Tesla’s energy generation and storage segment gross margin fell to 25.3% from 28.9% in the previous quarter. However, the revenue increased 11% compared to Q2 2017.
Based on 20 analysts offering 12 month price targets for TSLA in the last 3 months the majority of analysts are suggesting a “hold” on the company at the moment and 4 analysts recommend to buy a stock.
The average price target of 310.93 US-Dollar
The maximum price target of 500.00 US-Dollar
The lowest price target of 170.00 US-Dollar
Today Tesla’s stock price is about $304.00 a share.
Sales growth: 73.01% / Profit growth: -24.06% (Source: teletrader).
Oscillator: The of Tesla Inc. indicating an oversold condition. A countermovement therefore seems possible.
Preis indicator: The stock price is below the SMA200. But until the SMA200 it could go up the hill fast. The resistance could then appear at about 320 US-Dollar.
Trend indicator: is in the negative zone, but the bottom could be found. A countermovement seems as well from this perspective possible.
The drawn GAP (yellow circle in the Chart) and the SMA200 could be closed quickly (see chart).
In addition, it seems to give a strong support between 290 - 300 US dollars.
The black line in the chart: the starting price of the idea is 304.65 US-Dollar.
The red line in the chart: the stop loss is lying at 290.00 US-Dollar. Here is a strong support.
The green line in the chart: There for me the first further turning point in the idea = first goal is at about 320.00 US-Dollar. Here, the drawn GAP could be closed.
Tesla Inc. managed to meet analysts’ 3Q revenue estimates. The revenue for the reporting period amounted to 3.0 billion US-Dollar. This is 30% more than in the third quarter of 2016 financial year, and 7% more than in the previous quarter.
Anyway, Tesla is one of the most polarizing values! Some love Tesla the others hate. I'm just trading it.
The reason for this idea is, on the one hand, the chart situation and the mentioned indicators that could signal a countermovement. On the other hand, Tesla seems to have found a strong support at the $290-300 mark.
Is it going north again? Good news could catalyze this.
