Tesla ($TSLA) Plummets 7% Amid Concerns Over Q1 Deliveries and FY’24 Growth Outlook

Tesla’s stock took a sharp 7% nosedive today as investors express growing apprehension over the company’s first-quarter deliveries potentially falling well below Wall Street’s expectations. This concern stems from Tesla management’s indication during the fourth-quarter earnings call that fiscal year 2024 volume growth would be “notably lower” than the impressive 38% growth seen in fiscal year 2023.

But what exactly does “notably lower” mean? Analysts pegged the fiscal year 2024 year-over-year volume growth at a modest 16%. However, emerging worries suggest that Tesla’s first quarter could disappoint, potentially pushing the year-over-year volume growth closer to 10%, significantly lower than the street’s projection.

This disappointing outlook has further fueled speculations of impending downward revisions to Tesla’s fiscal year 2024 earnings. Already, Wall Street estimates for Tesla’s earnings per share for fiscal year 2024 have plummeted by a staggering 45% over the past year.
