Insiders note 'chaotic' environment in Panasonic Gigafactory operation, BI says

Current and former employees at Panasonic's (PCRFY) battery making operation inside Tesla's (TSLA) Gigafactory describe it is as a chaotic environment where standard operating procedures often go ignored and there's half a million pieces of scrap a day generated, Business Insider's Linette Lopez reports. According to a former employee, "Why do we throw away half a million batteries a day? Because people are slobs and the stuff's not clean." The former employee adds, "It's impossible to know everything. If Elon Musk was to know what was truly going on, he would flip his lid." Business Insider also reviewed internal documents, including some related to an oil spill that sent workers hunting through millions of battery cells to find potentially contaminated product for weeks.

Tesla's Q1 deliveries suggest 'demand cliff was real', says Barclays
Barclays analyst Brian Johnson kept his Underweight rating and $192 price target on Tesla, saying the company's Q1 deliveries reported last week suggests that the quarter will be "even tougher" than his below consensus view. The analyst notes that the price cuts announced in February reflects the view that the "demand cliff was real", and sees the deliveries print implying "further downside", particularly because of the shortfall in Model S and X vehicles. Johnson adds that a "meaningful rebound is unlikely", adding to Tesla's volume risks "at least until China production starts".

Neutral
Tesla price target lowered to $240 from $270 at Roth Capital
Roth Capital analyst Craig Irwin lowered his price target for Tesla (TSLA) to $240 from $270, while reiterating a Neutral rating on the shares. The analyst believes the direct read on Panasonic (PCRFY)/Tesla suspending plans for Gigafactory expansion is the partners probably do not see Tesla achieving projected sales volumes, and therefore necessary battery demand. The analyst thinks Tesla's battery costs are too high, with METI data pointing to Tesla's cell costs at around $240/kWh, while his checks show VW (VWAGY)/Porsche paying $250/kWh, indicating Tesla has no advantage here. Overall, Irwin believes Tesla's vehicle sales are slow because costs are simply too high for consumers.

Outperform
Tesla's story undergoing yet another 'significant' shift, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Colin Rusch believes Tesla's story is undergoing "yet another significant shift." Beyond Model 3 demand and cost reduction driving operating cash flow, the analyst thinks the Model S and X refresh cycle and pricing strategy are in focus for short-term investors while the longer-term story is increasingly weighted to China sell-through. Important in the Model S transition is that it remains Tesla's highest margin product and provides some cover for lower margins on Model X and Model 3, he contends, adding that any reduced volume on that vehicle will be a headwind for Tesla's margins. Rusch is lowering Model S and X deliveries in his 2019 estimates and lowering margins looking for incremental information on production cadence. He reiterates an Outperform rating and a $437 price target on the shares.
