Troubles seem neverending with announced layoffs, scrapping low-cost model plans, issues with Cybertrucks, and now some wondering whether Elon Musk is to blame.

What do analysts think about TSLA stock?

Barclays predicts Tesla’s upcoming earnings call will likely disappoint due to weak performance, including missed delivery targets and a shift away from mass-market vehicles. Analyst Dan Levy expects Tesla to fall short of estimates, affecting gross margins and free cash flow. Despite maintaining a ‘hold’ rating, Barclays slashed the price target by 20% to $180 from $225, reflecting uncertainty about Tesla’s strategy.

Other analysts share a bearish outlook on TSLA. JPMorgan’s Ryan Brinkman values Tesla stock at just $115 per share and rates it as a sell, implying a 23% downside. 

Meanwhile, GLJ Research’s Gordon Johnson lowered the price target to $22.86 and maintained a ‘strong sell’ rating, indicating a pessimistic view of Tesla’s prospects.
