Earnings Outlook: Tesla earnings: Expect Model 3 updates amid record stock highs

Tesla Inc. is scheduled to report fourth-quarter results after the bell Wednesday.

Wall Street will be eager to hear details on the Model 3, the all-electric mass-market car that Chief Executive Elon Musk hopes to start producing in July and selling later this year.

“That’s where all eyes are now,” said Ben Kallo, an analyst with Baird.

The Silicon Valley electric-car maker has promised to ramp up production to a rate of half a million vehicles in 2018, an ambitious goal that largely hinges on success of the Model 3.

Hopes for the Model 3 and any updates on the car’s production schedule are partly the reason Tesla TSLA, +1.90% stock has been on a tear in recent days.
