Yes, Tesla Beat Earnings — and Yes, Tesla Stock Is Still a Sell, Says Analyst
For a day that marked Tesla's (TSLA) fifth straight quarter of reporting positive profits, last week's 0.7% increase in the share price of Tesla stock seemed somewhat underwhelming.Reporting earnings Wednesday night, Tesla closed trading Thursday up only modestly, and really, only barely outperforming the S&P 500's overall 0.5% move. Tesla called Q3 its "best quarter in history," with pro forma earnings coming in 36% ahead of expectations at $0.76 per share, sales of $8.8 billion about 6% better than predicted, and free cash flowing strongly -- $1.9 billion over the past 12 months.Tesla told investors Wednesday that it remains on target to produce and deliver half a million electric cars this year, despite the fact that "this goal has become more difficult" to achieve in the face of Covid-19. Cybertruck deliveries are expected to begin late next year. Even Tesla's "energy" business -- solar roofs and solar storage -- looks "poised for strong growth," said the company.Much of Wall Street applauded the news, with R.W. Baird and JMP Securities both upgrading Tesla shares to "outperform" and Piper Sandler calling Tesla a "must-own" stock, and as both Oppenheimer and RBC Capital raised price targets on the shares. One analyst, however, stood out from the crowd for his continued pessimism on Tesla:Gordon Johnson of GLJ Research says Tesla is still a "sell."Urging investors not to forget the forest for the trees, Johnson reminds Elon Musk fans that Tesla continues to rely heavily upon
