Guru Investment Theses on Tesla Motors Inc

Eddie Lampert Comments on Tesla - Feb 26, 2016

Some innovative companies like Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) are heavily subsidized by government policy (either directly or through purchases made by their customers) while existing car companies are forced to comply with mandates to produce cars that people may not want at enormous cost. These companies rely heavily on continued financing (Tesla raised over $1 billion in equity and over $2.5 billion in debt over the past four years) and favorable capital market conditions and valuations while companies viewed through a more traditional lens, like Sears Holdings, are met with skepticism even though we have an enormous asset base and a proven history of monetizing these assets and raising additional capital to fund our obligations and transformation.

From Edward Lampert (Trades, Portfolio)'s 2015 annual letter for Sears Holdings.

Ron Baron Comments on Tesla - Nov 02, 2015

One benefit of investing with Baron Funds is that before, during, and after we invest in businesses, we “Question Everything.” In fact, questioning everything is so integral to our investment process that we have made “Question Everything” the theme of our annual conference this year that will take place on November 6, 2015. Questioning everything is what gives us confidence to “invest in people,” another tenet of our investment process. For example, we have made a significant effort to understand Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA)’s culture by tirelessly questioning its executives. As a result, it is unimaginable to me that if a car part or an assembly process wasn’t exactly “right” and potentially compromised the safety of Tesla passengers, that Elon Musk would lie about it. This is regardless of whether it cost his business millions to correct a problem or he had to miss projected car deliveries in a quarter and Tesla’s stock price would be negatively impacted for a period.

Baron Funds Comments on Tesla Motors Inc. - Aug 24, 2015

Shares of electric vehicle company Tesla Motors, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) rose on an upbeat first quarter earnings report that included strong early results from the launch of Tesla Energy, its new commercial battery business. The early success of the entry level 70D model launch also helped boost Tesla’s share price. As a higher performing vehicle versus the lower-priced 60 model, which it replaced, we believe the 70D significantly expands Tesla’s addressable market. We also look forward to Tesla’s upcoming launch of the Model-X SUV. (Gilad Shany)

Baron Funds Comments on Tesla Motors Inc. - Aug 19, 2015

Shares of electric vehicle company Tesla Motors, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) rose during the second quarter after an upbeat first quarter earnings call and strong initial customer response to the launch of Tesla Energy, its new energy storage business. The early success of the new entry level Model S – the 70D – also contributed to the positive momentum in Tesla’s shares. The market is now also looking forward to Tesla’s upcoming launch of its Model X sports utility vehicle, due out before the end of the summer. We continue to believe that Tesla’s talent pool, first-mover advantage, track record of innovation, scale and brand will enable it to disrupt the automobile market and take market share for years to come.

Baron Funds Comments on Tesla Motors Inc - Mar 23, 2015

After performing better than the market for most of 2014, shares of electric vehicle (EV) company Tesla Motors Inc. (TSLA) declined in the fourth quarter because traders believe lower oil prices reduce the near-term appeal of its cars. The company also delayed by three months the launch of its next model (“X”) to the second half of 2015. While we view the pursuit of a perfect product pre-launch as a positive, it points to the execution risk in a new category like EVs. We believe Tesla is an attractive long-term investment given its talent pool, technology leadership, first mover advantage, scale, and brand. (Gilad Shany)



From Ron Baron (Trades, Portfolio)'s Baron Partners Fund Fourth Quarter 2014 Commentary.



During the quarter, we bought additional shares of Tesla Motors Inc. (TSLA), the company with the mission to revolutionize and electrify the auto industry. Limited opportunities exist in one’s lifetime to witness tectonic shifts in the making, and we believe Tesla is driving one of these shifts. We want to take the back seat of this car and enjoy the ride. Since the last time we wrote about Tesla, Audi announced plans to invest $2 billion in electric vehicles (EVs), GM announced a new all-electric car, and Mercedes presented an autonomous car that may be electric. The same traditional car manufacturers who have been resisting the adoption of EVs are slowly changing their tune, and there is no doubt that Tesla had a leading role in this shift. We believe Tesla’s technology leadership, excellent talent pool and first mover advantage will allow it to take a substantial market share in the new electrifying era of the car industry and create the next mega auto brand.

Baron Funds Comments on Tesla Motors Inc - Oct 24, 2014

During the quarter we purchased shares in Tesla Motors, Inc (TSLA). The pace of innovation at Tesla is head spinning and the progress being made towards the goal of revolutionizing the auto industry is impressive. Recently, Tesla announced an all-wheel-drive (AWD) model with two electric motors. Tesla’s model D has a longer range due to its dual motor performance optimization! In addition, Tesla announced initial Autonomous Driving capabilities and the potential for the car to serve as a valet for its driver. For those of you who used to watch David Hasselhoff in “Knight Rider,” it must bring a smile to your face. Tesla continues to delight customers and out-innovate its competition. (Gilad Shany)

Ron Baron Comments on Tesla Motors - Oct 24, 2014

Tesla Motors: Built to Last

“We are not currently showing all our cards.” That was Chairman Elon Musk’s memorable comment on Tesla Motor (TSLA)’s second quarter 2014 earnings conference call. He then told investors that by the end of 2015, Tesla would be producing cars at a rate of 100,000 per year. That translates to $10 billion in annual sales with potential after-tax profits of $2 billion, if Tesla were not penalizing its profits in its bid to grow five times as large by 2020. Elon hinted at something more to come. He was true to his word. On October 9th, he announced that four wheel drive and really cool new autonomous driving technology was being added to Tesla cars, making them even safer than they already are.

We are a fan of Tesla’s business and of Elon Musk. One competitive advantage that we think will make Tesla “built to last” and all of us likely Tesla customers in 25 years, is that its competitors are being compelled to build and sell electric cars. They do not want to build such cars. As a result, they are developing electric expertise so slowly that the lead Tesla has built up through its fast growing staff of Silicon Valley engineers may soon become nearly insurmountable. Car companies don’t want to build electric cars because their existing plants that make engines, transmissions and drive trains would become “stranded assets.” Their unions don’t want electric cars since they are simpler to manufacture than cars with internal combustion engines (ICE), which means fewer factory assembly workers. Dealers don’t want electric cars, either. Tesla bypasses franchised dealers to sell its cars directly to consumers. Franchised car dealers also make a lot more money servicing cars than selling new ones. Tesla cars need less service than ICE cars. A standard ICE automobile has more than 2,000 moving parts. Tesla cars have 18 moving parts!

Tesla’s culture is far different from that of other car companies. Tesla’s mission is to build the planet’s best AND safest automobile. Tesla’s car also happens to be best for the environment. The following says all we need to know about Tesla’s culture and why the best engineers in Silicon Valley want to work there. When Tesla began to manufacture its cars, its inspection process was not as strong as it needed to be. Elon then conducted line inspections personally until his fellow workers understood exactly how he wanted the process to work. Elon next moved his drafting table to the middle of the manufacturing floor to write software with his engineers. That was to make sure everyone knew how important the quality of the product was to him. Our kind of chairman, that is for sure. Our kind of culture, in which every employee does whatever it takes to provide Tesla customers with the best product possible.

Ron Baron Comments on Tesla Motors Inc - Jul 28, 2014

Tesla Motors Inc. (TSLA) designs, develops, manufactures and sells fully electric vehicles. Tesla reported what we considered to be strong results in the first quarter, but investor reaction was negative and we took the opportunity to add to our positions when the stock price dropped in early May. Tesla continues to make progress with battery cost reduction and regulatory approvals to sell its cars directly to consumers. Both of these developments were viewed positively toward quarter end. We view Tesla as a “once in a lifetime” disruptor to the car industry and believe this justifies its premium valuation. (Gilad Shany)



We had told you about our purchase of Tesla Motors Inc. shares in the previous letter. During the quarter, we increased our level of confidence in Tesla’s superior engineering and design, which we believe will lead to mass market appeal. Right after Tesla’s annual shareholder meeting, CEO Elon Musk announced Tesla is opening all of its intellectual property to third parties, in order to induce the electrification of the auto industry (to date, electric car programs at the major manufacturers are small to non- existent).Tesla is confident in its ability to out-innovate its competitors due to its most formidable competitive advantage - people. As of today, we believe Tesla is the only car Original Equipment Manufacturer that is able to hire talent away from top tier technology companies.The ability to keep this talent busy and engaged for the greater good, with consistent execution and commercial success, will, we believe, build Tesla’s moats for years to come.We often say “we invest in people.”Tesla invests in people, too.

Baron Funds Comments on Tesla Motors - May 21, 2014

Tesla Motors, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) manufactures cars powered by lithium-ion batteries using an electric drive train. It builds vehicles to the highest quality and design standards, yet prices them at a level in line with internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles. Tesla has proprietary technology and is building additional battery capacity that we believe will give it a competitive advantage traditional car manufacturers will find extremely difficult to overcome. With its plan to launch a $35,000 electric car in 2017, we think demand for Tesla's cars could reach 500,000 per year by 2020 and grow to several times that amount in following years. Tesla is led by Elon Musk, an entrepreneur tied to several tr ansformative companies, including PayPal, SpaceX and SolarCity. We believe Elon may lead the transformation of the auto industry from its ICE age to the dot.com era. We will write about what we believe are Tesla's significant competitive advantages and growth opportunities in future letters. One thing, however, is clear: traditional car manufacturers hate Tesla. Car dealers hate Tesla. Oil companies hate Tesla. Unions hate Tesla. Only consumers like Tesla. We do too. (Gilad Shany)
