Tesla FUD: I Was Wrong

CarsA while ago, I started a semi-regular series in which I examined specific cases of Tesla FUD (or “Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt”). The plan was that I would look at a FUD topic that it seemed a ton of stock analysts were suddenly communicating about Tesla.

The results included Tesla’s second consecutive quarter of profits, which came after months of Wall Street analysts and the financial media claiming that Tesla was about to run out of cash (and might even go bankrupt), couldn’t possibly post a profitable quarter in 2018 (and certainly not two quarters of profits), and would need to raise money again to fund its massive “cash burning” production processes.
