Wedbush’s Dan Ives reacts to Tesla Q1 results

According to Wedbush Securities’ Dan Ives, Shanghai will likely be a significant headwind for Tesla in the current fiscal quarter. On CNBC’s “Closing Bell”, he said:

It’s all about deliveries for Q2. I think China could be a 50,000 to 60,000 headwind for Q2. Then there could be significant, incremental expenses related to supply chain, especially coming out of China.

Ives forecasts an EPS of $1.86 a share for the second quarter versus the Street at $2.26 a share. He, however, expects the issues to be resolved by the second half of 2022 and remains bullish on the stock for the longer term with a price target of $1,400 or roughly 35% up from here.
