Goldman Sachs dies Tesla, pointing out that the first quarter of electric vehicles will still be disappointing
Tesla has made a profit for two consecutive quarters, and there are still no analysts who can impress Goldman Sachs. Recently, Goldman Sachs analyst David Tamberrino sent a report to his clients, expecting Tesla’s revenue and electric vehicle delivery in the first quarter of 2019. Below expectations, the target price for the next 12 months is $210, and Bitsla’s current share price is about 25%.
According to a report by Goldman Sachs analyst David Tamberrino, the total delivery of Tesla Model S and Model X in the first quarter of 2019 is estimated at 17,300 units after the investigation of Tesla’s delivery indicators at the end of the month, in the fourth quarter of 2018. 20,700 units, the drop in the delivery of these two electric vehicles is mainly due to weak market demand. Due to the decline in the overall demand of the global electric vehicle market and the delivery of the Tesla Model 3, the Model S and Model X have been able to fully stabilize the production capacity. Meet existing market needs. The much-watched Model 3 has been delivered to the global market since the first quarter of 2019. It is expected to deliver 57,500 units in a single season. After launching new vehicles in China and Europe, Tesla will be able to deliver at least just in each region. 10,000 units of Model 3.

As manufacturers enter the field of electric vehicles, Tesla faces more and more competitors. The strategy of price reduction also shows that some of the market demand for electric vehicles is weak. From the perspective of electric vehicle manufacturing, it is unlikely that vehicles with stable production capacity will be able to Cost reductions in production and raw materials, transportation and logistics costs are also fixed, and compression is mainly due to cost of sales.
