  • Elon Musk says he's finally ready to start making money

In other Tesla news, Elon also responded to The Economist this morning by claiming that Tesla will be cash positive and profitable in Q3 and 4 of this year.

Tesla has already sought this month to play down widespread Wall Street speculation that it would need to return to capital markets this year to raise more funds for the money-losing company as it ramps up production of the Model 3 sedan seen as crucial to its long-term profitability.

Replying to an article by The Economist on Twitter, Musk tweeted early on Friday: "The Economist used to be boring, but smart with a wicked dry wit". The company and its investors were also reportedly planning to spend another $500 million to buy out existing investors, though that wouldn't be disclosed in a DE filing because new shares wouldn't be created.

Tesla added: "Last week, in a conversation with the NTSB, we were told that if we made additional statements before their 12-24 month investigative process is complete, we would no longer be a party to the investigation agreement". This metric reflects the average amount a stock's price has differed from the mean over a period of time.

It's been a tough few weeks for Tesla, the battery-electric automaker again missing production targets, being accused of improperly firing almost 1,000 factory workers and being scolded by federal safety regulators for its role in investigating a fatal crash involving its semi-autonomous Autopilot system. Manikay Partners Llc bought 25,000 shares as the company's stock declined 14.15% with the market.

CNBC has the details on what the Tesla CEO had to say.

Two anonymous sources told Reuters this week that Tesla has started talking with parts suppliers in preparation for its next auto, the Model Y SUV, which is set to hit the assembly line in November 2019. And during a CBS interview this week, Musk suggested that things are moving in the right direction.

Not all investors bought Musk's ambitious projections. Yeah, I've been sleeping on the factory floor, not because I think that's a fun place to sleep.

But not everyone is convinced. And with good reason, the Model 3 was supposed to be the first Tesla vehicle not subject to any prolonged delays. You might be caught in a "time shift." . Musk shared that he believes some customers may have canceled their orders because they couldn't afford to wait for the Model 3. Cascend Securities cut shares of Tesla from a hold rating to a sell rating and set a $250.00 target price for the company.in a research report on Tuesday, December 5th. Investors were watching for developments in the U.S.

"I need to figure out how to do it better", Musk said in response to journalist Gayle King's question about production targets that continue to be missed. After a recent check, Tesla, Inc. stock is found to be 5.13% volatile for the week, while 5.52% volatility recorded for the month with ATR of 16.39.
