  • Model 3 is due late 2017 but the design will be revealed i nthe 1st quarter of 2016 (that’s soon!)
  • Q2 Revenues, $1.2B vs $1.17B expected


That didn’t stop the stock from sliding in after hours trading down over 8% on the news. The reason? Tesla Motors $TSLA Q2 Non-GAAP Earnings Per Share (EPS), ($0.48) vs ($0.59) expected.

    I feel like if you don’t know how financial markets move, you shouldn’t make snide comments like “The reason? Tesla Motors $TSLA Q2 Non-GAAP Earnings Per Share (EPS), ($0.48) vs ($0.59) expected.” That’s not the reason it’s down, and saying things like that comes off ignorant.
