    I can never understand the market. Why is the stock up when they had a MASSIVE unexpected earnings loss??? weren't they expected to show profit of .10c/share but instead they are reporting major major major loss at .87c/share. just wow.

    At first glance their letter makes it look like they crushed it, people react to that much quicker. I suspect the hype will settle back down after an article or two from someone pointing out the negatives.

    Did you bother to read the report? Massive growth this year, increasing demand (price of gas irrelevant when it comes to Tesla sales), increasing gross margins, positive cash flow this year without capital raise, etc., etc.

    What was the guidance given at this time last year with regard to unit sales for 2015. Have seen a lot of snarky remarks about it doesnt matter what Tesla says they dont hit those marks. If I recall correctly didnt Tesla just miss the initial estimates by a couple thousand units.

    IIRC, the initial guidance was for 55K, mid-year they revised that downward (I would guess because they saw the MX ramp would be later and slower) then ended up beating the low end of their guidance.
