Tesla Q3 2023 Deliveries Estimate Revised Upward to 462,000 Vehicles

RBC Capital's Tom Narayan reiterated their Buy rating on Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA). The analyst also maintained a $305 price target.

According to a note released by Narayan, they have raised their Tesla deliveries estimate for Q3 2023 from 454,000 vehicles to 462,000. Narayan expects Tesla to report quarterly delivery and production data "early next week," and the basis for their revision was "registration data and app downloads."

This positive outlook from Narayan comes as 63.6% of top-rated analysts currently rate TSLA as a Strong Buy or Buy, with 36.4% considering it a Hold. Interestingly, no analysts recommend or strongly recommend selling the stock.

The consensus forecast among analysts is that TSLA's upcoming year will deliver earnings per share (EPS) of $4.57. If the analysts are correct, TSLA's next yearly EPS will be up by 17.8% on a year-over-year basis.

However, it's worth noting that TSLA's stock price has experienced a decline since its last quarterly report on June 30, 2023. The stock is down by 6.7% in that period and down by 11.6% on a year-over-year basis. Comparatively, TSLA is trailing behind the S&P 500, which is down 16.9%.

It's important to consider the track record of the analyst providing the rating. RBC Capital analyst Tom Narayan is ranked in the bottom 25% out of 4,337 Wall Street analysts, with an average return of -0.9% and a 38.1% win rate.
