A big Tesla skeptic on Wall Street raises his estimate for second-quarter earnings
Tesla got a boost Friday from one of its biggest Wall Street skeptics, who now sees Elon Musk's electric car company headed to a nearly profitable second-quarter earnings report. Tesla shares rose 0.6% in Friday's premarket from its previous close of $253.54. Its stock surged in early July after Tesla reported a record second-quarter deliveries number. At the time, Johnson called the number "impressive" but said Tesla would have to show that it's improving profitability, urging investors to focus on the second-quarter earnings report. "While we were not overly surprised by the swing trade going into the delivery report, and the reaction thereafter, we are somewhat surprised by the continued strength" of Tesla shares, Johnson said.cnbc.com
