— CNBC (@CNBC) April 4, 2019 Tesla shares down 8.2%
Shares in electric car maker Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TLSA) fell 8.23% or $24.03 to $267.78 after it reported worse-than-expected deliveries for the March quarter.
Tesla revealed it had delivered 63,000 cars during the March quarter which was well below analyst expectations of 76,000.
The company reiterated its guidance of 360,000 to 400,000 vehicle deliveries this year, which infers a large amount of growth in the remaining quarters to meet the lower end of guidance.
Last month we had a look at Tesla’s price action and noted its shares had found support in the $240-260 region twice in 2018.
