Tesla is seen reporting adjusted earnings of 30 cents a share in the fourth quarter
5 february 2015

Tesla Motors Inc. is scheduled to report fourth-quarter earnings after the market closes on Feb. 11.

Investors have given Tesla the cold shoulder this year, alarmed by Chief Executive Elon Musk’s frankness about the electric-car maker’s profitability (don’t expect it until 2020) and potentially weak quarterly sales in China, a key market for Tesla.

Tesla shares also have been hit by lower retail gasoline prices and lower crude-oil futures prices, lumped in with concerns that consumers—even the relatively affluent who can afford a Tesla’s Model S sedan—would shy away from electric vehicles and alternative sources of energy as gasoline and diesel prides dropped.
