Tesla Q3: No Major Surprises

Revenues a little light as sales mix weakens, services decline. Margins better than expected as cost structure improves. Stock attempting to set new all-time high above $900.

The Occam's Razor That Tesla Bulls Ignore And Which Breaks The Long-Term Expectations

EV passenger car sales numbers by 2025 are expected to reach 7-8 million with analyst revenue expectations suggesting Tesla will sell at least 2.5 million vehicles in that year. Europe, the US and China, in particular, will be the largest markets, and observing consumer behaviour, it is evident that Tesla’s current market cap can’t be justified. All major markets are dominated by local or regional brands, suggesting a very tough road ahead for Tesla to fulfil the extreme expectations facing the company. Industry protectionism and consumer behaviour will prove difficult parameters to sway for Tesla as consumers stick to what they know while wanting to support their national economy.

Is Tesla's Stock Forecast Impacted By Rivian R1T Electric Truck?

Tesla does not have a large model range right now and is thus dependent on new entrants such as the Cybertruck - which recently got delayed. Peers are entering the highly attractive electric truck space way before Tesla, including Rivian with its R1T and Ford with the F-150 Lightning. This could hurt Tesla's brand image as well as its stock price, as Tesla has lost the first-mover advantage in this important future market.
