Tesla shares surge after Model 3 production update and record deliveries

06 April 2018

Tesla said: "This is the fastest growth of any automotive company in the modern era".

Unfortunately, Tesla doesn't break down its delivery results per quarter, but since the Model 3 is now only available in the USA, we can safely assume that all the deliveries happened in America.

"As a result, Tesla does not require an equity or debt raise this year, apart from standard credit lines", it said.

The bases were loaded when Ohtani's at-bat first started, but a wild pitch from Tomlin allowed Kole Calhoun to score from third. The Angels ended a 12-game losing streak against the Indians, which was tied for the longest active mark in baseball.

According to certain sources, employees assigned to the production of the Model S and Model X could be transferred over to help increase production of the Model 3.

Some analysts said there were signs that the company might have prioritised the cheaper auto, seen as crucial to its profitability, over its Model X SUV and its more-established and expensive Model S sedan. Although acknowledging that it came up short of achieving its forecast of completing 2,500 Model 3s per week during the first quarter, hitting 2,020 for the last seven days of March sent the stock up by 6 percent. Approaching these production levels would also imply that the Model 3 will be Tesla's biggest revenue generator from the second quarter onwards, considering that the company's premium Model X and S deliveries are likely to remain largely steady year-over-year.

Q1 deliveries totaled 29,980 vehicles, of which 11,730 were Model S, 10,070 were Model X, and 8,180 were Model 3.

But a series of setbacks have left Tesla far behind schedule in turning out the Model 3 - for which almost 400,000 prospective buyers have already put down $1,000 deposits - and it is taking some extraordinary measures to turn things around.

Washington to impose sanctions against at least 6 Russian oligarchs

The Model 3 production did not go to plan.

In November, he warned an analyst against setting his watch by his "rough target" to start Tesla vehicle production in China in about three years. Tesla has become a very unusual share animal - what analysts call a "story stock".

After assessing Tesla's Q1 production numbers as well as the company's cash burn, Bloomberg's Liam Denning wondered if the shareholders' optimism was justified. "Nevertheless, we believe it is hard to be more constructive on the stock until there is greater evidence supporting when the 5k units a week can be achieved".

Tesla also sought to dispel quality concerns for the Model 3, which GTM reported on last month. The share price has dropped lately, but so has the amount of short interest.

Spotify in successful but unusual market debut
The investment firm hasn't sold any shares, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the information isn't public. Fellow streaming and media giant Netflix may provide a roadmap for Spotify's future stock performance, according to one analyst.
