Tesla Downgraded To Neutral On Battery, Competition Risks At Roth Capital

As previously reported, Roth Capital analyst Craig Irwin downgraded Tesla to Neutral from Buy. He believes Tesla has a viable path to meet at least the low end of its 360,000-400,000 deliveries guidance for 2019, but this does not eliminate margin risks from rising 2019 battery costs or the impact of intensifying competition, Irwin tells investors.

The analyst, who expects the shares to remain range-bound until the battery and competition issues are resolved, keeps a $238 price target on the stock.
