Tesla’s (NASDAQ: TSLA) Cyber Roundup in Austin, or the annual shareholder meeting, ended on August 4, showing the company highlights from their Q2 earnings. Shareholders approved a 3-for-1 stock split, the second in two years, though it’s unknown when this will occur. 

Furthermore, Elon Musk, Tesla’s CEO, announced that the company just produced its three millionth car, with a goal to achieve a ‘2 million vehicle run-rate this year. Musk further pointed to free cash flow generation of up to $7 billion over the past four quarters, driven mainly by the ramp-up in the Model 3.  

Meanwhile, Phil LeBeau, an auto and airline expert, joined CNBC’s Squawk Box to discuss what he saw at Tesla’s shareholder meeting, claiming that Tesla investors can be optimistic. 

“If you were watching the annual meeting last night, and you are a Tesla investor, then there was plenty to be optimistic about. Among the highlights of what Elon Musk talked about, over the course of 45 minutes, after they got through the business of Tesla, is what these annual meetings are all about. They’re planning to name a new Giga factory site likely by the end of this year.” 

He also added:

“A Cybertruck production, they’re going to start putting the tooling in the next couple of months. They expect production by the middle of next year. And total sales in 10 years, think about this, Elon Musk says they will hit 100 million vehicles, at least that’s what he believes is possible.”
