Tesla (TSLA) bear straight up lies about revenues in CNBC segment, still gets away with it


Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) is coming at the end of another quarter, and like clockwork, the company’s critics and short-sellers are out in full force. Also like clockwork, even those who’ve been wrong about the vehicle maker for years are more given a platform to broadcast their take. Gordon Johnson of GLJ Research is one of these. 

In a current CNBC segment with fund veteran Joe Kernen, Johnson contended his bear scenario against Tesla once again. During his interview, Johnson noticed that his firm, GLJ Research, has advocated a brief against the vehicle maker for quite a while now. Echoing his previous speaking factors, Johnson insisted that Tesla’s hyper-growth narrative will fall in the second half of 2020, which the organization is going to eliminate access to capital markets following year. 

While describing his points, Johnson insisted that Tesla’s revenue had peaked in Q4 2018, which things have been heading downhill since then. This is a glaring mistake on the TSLA brief ’s component, since Q4 2018’s $7.226 billion revenue was lower than Q4 2019’s $7.384 billion. Interestingly , the CNBC host did not correct Johnson at all.

Today is the 10th anniversary of Tesla’s debut from the stock exchange, so it’s quite intriguing to watch CNBC bringing over Gordon Johnson, who has slammed on the table with a $70 price target on TSLA inventory before correcting it to his current $87 per share price target, as a guest. Johnson is one of the more careless TSLA bears out there, after all, even as emphasized perfectly by a gaffe he committed back in 2018 if he was working as an analyst at Vertical Research Group

During the time, Tesla was involved with a class action lawsuit filed by both investors, Kurt Friedman and Uppili Srinivasan, that declared that the business and its executives misled shareholders about the progress of Model 3 generation. In July 2018, the plaintiffs published a memo that included their arguments from the vehicle maker that was electrical. As segments of this memo spread on the web, Tesla conveys like Johnson misinterpreted its contents as the company admitting to dissuade investors. 

Johnson then wrote a note to Vertical&rsquocustomers headlined with “TSLA may have Admitted to Actionably False Statements,” citing the memo’s departments as a basis. But not long after its publication, as it became evident that the notice was inaccurate, Johnson had to modernize his notice with a “ERRATUM” about its headline. He also issued an apology to this firm’s customers. “We apologize for your inconvenience,&rdquo. 

Tesla isn’t a companion that is perfect, and you will find facets for example its service — of its operations — that need drastic progress. The business also faces a good deal of tough challenges before it because it attempts to ramp its energy company and take about the trucking and pickup industry using the Semi and the Cybertruck. However, the doom and gloom scenarios peddled by bears like Johnson have now been proven wrong time and time again, which makes his CNBC section now. 

Disclosure: I don’t have any ownership in stocks of TSLA and don’t have any plans to initiate any places.
