Guru Investment Theses on Tesla Inc

Baron Funds Comments on Tesla - Jun 07, 2017

Shares of electric vehicle company Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) rose during the first quarter following its launch of GigaFactory, one of the world’s largest manufacturing facilities, which will potentially drive significant cost reduction. Tesla is on target for a July 2017 launch of its mass market Model 3, potentially the largest product cycle in history. Additionally, the company’s SolarCity merger is on track, showing less cash drain than initially feared by investors. We believe a pro-U.S. jobs administration is a tailwind for Tesla as it is one of North America’s fastest growing employers. The company also raised $1.4 billion from capital markets during the period. As importantly, we think, was an announcement by Tencent, the largest publicly owned company in China, that it had acquired 5% of Tesla for $1.8 billion. (Gilad Shany/Ishay Levin)



From the Baron Focused Fund first quarter 2017 shareholder letter.

Ron Baron Comments on Tesla - Apr 25, 2017

During the first quarter of 2017, Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA)’s stock price increased 30.24% to $278.30 per share. Tesla is Baron Partners Fund’s largest holding and represented 14.2% of this focused Fund’s gross portfolio investments (18.2% of net assets) at quarter end. Until 2017, Tesla’s share price had been range bound principally between $200 and $250 per share since 2014. During that period, Baron Partners Fund purchased 1.1 million Tesla shares for an average cost of $213.35 per share. At the date of this letter, Tesla’s share price was above $300 per share.

Since 2013, Tesla has more than tripled its annual revenues to more than $7 billion. Demand for Tesla’s new and used Model S sedans and Model X crossover cars continue to exceed its production capacity and “for sale” used cars. Tesla’s $100,000 luxury “S” sedans and “X” crossovers already outsell Mercedes Benz’ luxury cars…even in Europe! While Tesla’s Models S and X represent about 8% of worldwide luxury car sales, luxury cars comprise less than 2% of worldwide automobile sales. We believe Tesla’s revenues will increase at an even faster rate following the introduction this summer of its mass market, $35,000, Model 3 sedan.

Tesla opened its first car assembly line in its Fremont, California plant in 2012. Tesla’s production capacity was then 1,000 cars per week. That year Tesla sold only 2,000 cars. In 2015, Tesla opened a second line in its Fremont factory, this one with the capacity to produce 3,000 Model “S” sedans and Model “X” crossover cars per week. In 2017 it sold 76,000 cars. In July 2017, Tesla plans to open its third production line in the Fremont facility. This line has planned capacity initially of 5,000 Model 3 cars per week which will eventually scale to 10,000 Model 3 cars per week.

Many investors worry about competition for Tesla from large, hundred year old automobile original equipment manufacturer (OEM) car makers. Those car companies have billions invested in plants that provide them with expertise and competitive advantage to make ICE cars (cars that use internal combustion engines instead of Tesla’s batteries). Those plants would become “stranded assets” if abandoned or converted to make electric cars. OEMs also have large, legacy, independent dealer networks reliant upon servicing cars with internal combustion engines. Electric cars need little servicing. Electric cars also don’t need gasoline and gasoline stations. Traditional ICE OEMs are also constrained by their entrenched legacy distribution channel that limits their abilities to offer services provided by Tesla’s efficient, direct to consumer sales organization.

General Motors (NYSE:GM) recently introduced Bolt, a compact, mass market, electric car. The Bolt is a necessity for GM to meet emission and mileage standards that will permit it to continue to sell its very profitable but low miles per gallon SUVs. GM has announced that it plans to sell 30,000 Bolt cars this year. It sold 3,000 in the first three months of 2017. Industry sources indicate Bolt sales have been disappointing and dealer inventories are high.

Tesla announced early last year that it would begin to manufacture and ship its Model 3 electric car in 2017. In the first six weeks following that announcement on May 18, 2015, Tesla received an astounding 373,000 orders for its Model 3! Customers placed those purchase orders with $1,000 deposits for a car buyers had never seen, had never sat in, had never driven and that would not be available for more than another year! We believe the reason for the enormous demand…with no advertising… is not just because the luxury Tesla S and X cars are beautiful, environmentally friendly, low maintenance and fun to drive. According to Department of Transportation statistics, Tesla cars are the safest cars ever made…and Tesla expects the Model 3 to be as praiseworthy.

Tesla has spent the past five years making substantial investments in infrastructure including hundreds of showrooms and maintenance facilities, thousands of charging stations, enormous battery and solar roof plants and a paint shop capable of painting 500,000 cars annually with capacity that can be doubled with modest additional investments.

I almost forgot. Panasonic is investing more than $1.5 billion in Tesla’s $5 billion Reno Giga battery factory, the same amount in an expansion of the Reno factory and has committed to make an additional $250-300 million investment in Tesla’s second Giga factory in Buffalo, New York. The Buffalo facility will produce solar roofs, a product about which we are also quite excited. We are also optimistic about Tesla batteries, its cars with autonomous driving capabilities, Tesla “mobility” services like Uber’s (Tesla could make your car available to others when you are not using it which will offset your car payments) and utility network services.

Baron Opportunity Fund 1st Quarter Shareholder Letter - Apr 20, 2017

Shares of electric vehicle company Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) rose during the first quarter on the back of several positive developments. In January, Tesla officially launched cell and battery production at the Gigafactory, one of the world’s largest manufacturing facilities, which will potentially drive significant electric battery cost reductions. On its fourth quarter earnings call, Tesla forecast 47,000 to 50,000 first half deliveries of its Model S and X vehicles, an increase of 65%. Moreover, Tesla announced that it remains on target for a 2017 launch of its mass market Model 3, potentially the largest product cycle in history, with initial production slated to begin this summer. In March, Tesla raised almost $1.4 billion of capital, strengthening its balance sheet to support investments ahead of the Model 3 launch. Additionally, the company’s SolarCity acquisition is on track, showing less cash drain than initially feared by investors. Finally, we believe a pro-U.S. jobs administration is a tailwind for Tesla as it is one of North America’s fastest growing employers. (Ishay Levin/Gilad Shany)

Baron Opportunity Fund Comments on Tesla Motors - Feb 21, 2017

The shares of electric-vehicle pioneer Tesla Motors, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) grew in the fourth quarter after its shareholders approved the SolarCity merger, aligning the company with management’s long-term vision. Tesla also started to enjoy the benefits of its multi-year investment in the Gigafactory as it becomes operational and provides a competitive advantage in scale and battery prices. We believe that Tesla, as an important U.S.-based auto manufacturer, can potentially benefit from a pro-“U.S. jobs” administration. (Gilad Shany/ Ishay Levin)

Baron Funds Comments on Tesla Motors - Nov 14, 2016

Shares of electric vehicle company Tesla Motors, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) fell during the third quarter as the market continued to evaluate the potential merger with SolarCity. An investigation into a fatal accident involving Tesla’s autopilot and the possibility of an additional equity round by year end also pressured the stock. We feel good about the brand Tesla has built and its ability to bring substantial innovation to its products. Tesla has received over 370,000 Model 3 reservations, representing close to $18 billion in backlog and the largest product launch in history. (Gilad Shany)

Baron Funds Comments on Tesla Motors - Oct 11, 2016

Our second largest position is electric vehicle company Tesla Motors,Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA). The company is run by someone we believe to be a true visionary, Elon Musk. We think Tesla has first mover advantage, the best talent pool in the industry, scale, and brand.

While paving the way for transformation of the automotive industry in areas like electrification, safety, self-driving, connectivity, and more, Tesla has built an impressive brand awareness that will serve it for years to come, in our view. Tesla has invested in highly automated manufacturing facilities for its cars and batteries, innovations such as automated driving technology and a networked fleet, and other key initiatives aimed at building the world’s leading electric vehicle company. We believe that over the next decade, electric vehicles will be cheaper, better, and safer. Tesla is enabling the ride to this future; and with its first mover advantage, human capital, and a visionary leader, we believe it will take a significant share of the secular shift from gas-powered to electric vehicles.

Baron Funds Comments on Tesla Motors - Aug 08, 2016

Shares of electric vehicle company Tesla Motors, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) fell during the second quarter, due to concerns over the Model X ramp and execution risk of its significant growth plan. The market also appeared skeptical of Tesla’s announced intent to buy Solar City. We believe Tesla’s brand is strong; the company’s S sedan and X crossover vehicles are unusually attractive; and its production of Model X is increasing. Further, Tesla has received over 370,000 reservations for the $35,000 – $40,000 Model 3 which represented nearly $18 billion in backlog. We are favorably inclined to the Tesla acquisition of Solar City but are still evaluating the transaction. (Gilad Shany)
