Tesla Q3 2019 earnings preview: ‘The Street’ view, broker ratings and client sentiment

A consensus of estimates from Bloomberg surveyed analysts arrived at the following expectations for the Q3 2019 Tesla results:

Broker ratings

A Thomson Reuters poll of 33 analysts maintain a long-term average rating of hold for Tesla (as of 16 October 2019), with 7 of these analysts recommending a strong buy, 4 recommending a buy, 10 hold, 8 sell and 4 with a strong sell recommendation on the stock.

Client sentiment

IG clients (50% of them) with open positions on Tesla Inc (as of 16 October 2019) expect the share price to rise in the near term.

Tesla technical view

The share price of Tesla has broken out of a triangle consolidation. The breakout has, however, moved the share into overbought territory. Traders of the triangle breakout might hope for a pullback towards the 240 support level for long entry, targeting a move back towards resistance at 268. Should the share price instead move to close below the 220 support level, the bullish indications would be deemed to have failed.

Twitter technical view

The share price of Twitter currently trades in a short-term range between the 38.90 (support) and 40.80 (resistance) levels. Traders of the stock might look to the upcoming results for a renewed directional catalyst.
