Citi expects pullback in Tesla shares from last night's delivery report
Citi analyst Itay Michaeli expects Tesla's Q3 delivery report last night to drive a selloff in the stock. The 97,000 deliveries fell short of recently inflated expectations stemming from a media reported internal e-mail suggesting the company had a shot at delivering 100,000 vehicles, Michaeli tells investors in a research note. Further, the release didn't specifically confirm Tesla's 2019 delivery guidance of 360,000-400,000, adds the analyst. Michaeli points out that meeting the low-end of the range now requires Tesla to deliver 105,000 units in Q4. He keeps a Sell rating on the shares with a $191 price target. Tesla in premarket trading is down $11.75, or 5%, to $231.38.

Underperform
Tesla focus shifts on earnings, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Joseph Spak is keeping his Underperform rating on Tesla after its Q3 delivery figures, noting that while the 97K was above consensus 95K, it was below the "whisper" forecast of 100K speculated by media outlets. The analyst believes that investor focus will now fall on earnings, with a rise in Model S/X car sales becoming subject to lease accounting - 15% vs. 10% last quarter. Spak adds that Tesla's "inventory" - or cumulative excess production - still stands around 20K, even though Q3 marked the 2nd consecutive quarter when deliveries exceeded production.

Overhang around Tesla story still ability to hit profitability, says Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives believes that for the Tesla story, all eyes of the Street will now focus in on the profitability picture trajectory for Q4 when the company reports its earnings later this month and the implications/commentary on the business model going forward. While the company did hit the target it set back in July to sequentially increase the amount of vehicles delivered which the analyst applauds, he notes that it was only by about 1,700 units and that in order to hit its ambitious unit guidance of 360K-400K the company will have to deliver about 105K vehicles in Q4, which Ives continues to view as a difficult task. While Q3 indicates some sustained demand, the analyst still believes the biggest overhang around the story is the ability to hit profitability and achieve its ambitious unit guidance for 2019 of 360k-400k units. Ives reiterates a Neutral rating and $220 price target on the shares.
