TSLA's report tonight saw slow revenues and margins. The company expects continued slower revenues. My EPS are way below the Street which guide's my opinion as you know on any stock I've followed. My TSLA earnings have been an amazing predictor of the stock's direction over the last 5-7 years following it.
As long as bonds don't catch a bid, rates go up and car buyers wait.
TSLA, without a higher gross margin driver like FSD has now become a large legacy low margin cyclical auto company. Slowing revenues and slowing margins is not the sign of a growth company but rather a mature cyclical company. Dropping price is a reaction to demand because TSLA doesn't want to slow production. I mentioned in chat it's kind of like a trader that keeps buying as a stock goes down. Those traders risk getting wiped out. Most cyclical companies adjust production-growth capacity with changing cyclical dynamics. TSLA has not. It's a building risk.
So without an FSD high margin driver, TSLA's at the mercy to auto cyclicality.
Remember also auto PE's tend to be sub-10. Based on my numbers TSLA's trading at over 100 PE on this year's numbers.
The energy business revenue growth has also been slowing.
Lower short term Fed rates may not be the savior either. As short rates come down, a strong economy can drive up longer term rates hurting car buyers.
Technically, below TSLA's 200 day is risk to 130.
I do think many TSLA bulls who've made a lot of money in the stock have not lived through typical cycles now that TSLA is no longer a auto growth company but rather
more of a mature auto company.
Caution is continued to be warranted.
