Tesla Analysis Video

11666 11 3 1

Tesla’s revenue has constantly climbed higher as the company is putting all its efforts to expand its topline. This has led to the creation of massive infrastructure causing Amazon’s assets to balloon. Tesla’s stock analysis highlights the contradiction in the exponential growth of its topline and its non-existent bottom line. After the years of operations many investors had started questioning if the zero profit business model of the company will allow it to survive in this heavily contested arena in the future.

Yes, thats no miracle, because they tripled the negative cash flow in 2015, so they now can burn even more money with every produced car. I think, that is unique in the whole automobile industry: instead of reducing the costs per car, Musk is extending the cash burning rate every quarter, thats ingenious...

Tesla’s price trend has reflected this debate which has led to stagnation and volatility in Tesla stock price. Tesla stock price history shows that the stock has performed much better than its competitors since its listing. The company has managed to grow its revenues at fast pace. Tesla’s financial analysis also shows a lot of room for cost cutting, which should help the company to boost its profits.

Tesla PE ratio chart is non existent because of lack of profits. However, Tesla is making strong progress towards achieving profitability. The company has released new models which will help in continuing the strong revenue growth and achieving profitability. The increasing awareness about global warming and climate change will also help in driving demand for Tesla's electric cars.
