Tesla Q2 results: CFRA analyst says the stock is a ‘buy’ here

Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) shares are volatile in extended trading after the leading U.S. electric cars manufacturer reported a 42% annualised growth in revenue that still came in shy of Street estimates.

What else was noteworthy?

At 27.9%, automotive gross margin was down both sequentially and on a year-over-year basis. Tesla blames supply constraints, China (COVID shutdown) and higher production costs for the weakness.

It also sold 75% of bitcoin holdings in Q2 for a $564 million loss. On CNBC’s “Closing Bell”, Garrett Nelson – Senior Analyst at CFRA Research said:

Q2 presented some unique challenges. But their June production was the strongest in company history. So, looking at the long-term opportunity, we’re buyers. We think investors will do very well in a year, three years, five years down the road by buying Tesla around these levels.

Last month, CEO Elon Musk said Tesla will cut 10% of its salaried workforce. The stock is down more than 35% for the year.
