Tesla selloff after delivery numbers, Oil leaps 6% after OPEC+ surprise production cuts, UFC & WWE to combine and create $21.4B entertainment company, SoFi acquires mortgage lender Wyndham Capital Mortgage, and much more…
Let’s Dive In!!!
🚘 Tesla Drops After Record EV Deliveries. Tesla reported first-quarter delivery and production numbers that topped estimates, indicating previous price cuts are boosting demand. But is it enough?
Tesla delivered 422,875 vehicles beating 421,000 estimate
Tesla produced 440,808 cars beating 432,500 estimate
Tesla’s stock finished the trading session down -6.12%
Why is the stock down?
First, Wall Street is in disagreement of the expectation number. Some people are saying analyst expectations for deliveries were 430,000.
Secondly, Tesla should’ve blown deliveries out of the water. You can use either number for the analyst’s expectation, it doesn’t matter. Deliveries should've been more. These numbers for the first-quarter are following Tesla’s price cuts. Tesla barely beating delivery expectations after massive price cuts to all their models isn’t good.
🛢 Oil leaps 6% as OPEC+ cuts output. OPEC announced they are cutting an additional 1.65 million barrels of oil production per day. This builds on production cuts of 2 million barrels per day for late-2022. In total, now OPEC is producing nearly 5 million barrels less per day than just a few years ago.
