As earnings calls go, this should be an exciting one. The fourth quarter 2016 earnings report from Tesla may not seem like a big deal to most, but investors and customers will be following along to see whether CEO Elon Musk drops any Tesla Model 3 news on production, plans for promotional pushes, or how the Gigafactory is progressing.
After the markets close on Wednesday, Tesla will issue a press release outlining its earnings for the quarter. Shortly afterwards, the company will host a call to go into further detail with investors and analysts about the results.
A question-and-answer session will be held after the introduction, and that’s going to be well worth your ears. In these sections, experts have the chance to press Tesla’s management for clarity about some of the big issues facing the company. If Tesla has had a down quarter, this will be the section where experts will try to find out more about why. If it’s a good quarter, they may want to know more about the company’s plans about how they hope to continue this momentum.
