Tesla: Staff Reduction Confirms Our View of Focus on Profits in 2024

On April 15, Tesla shares fell 3%. Share declines relate to Tesla’s plan to lay off more than 10% of its workforce and the departure of at least one high-level executive. The move is consistent with Tesla's strategic shift toward profitability over deliveries growth in 2024. Tesla has historically adjusted its workforce based on its strategy, hiring during periods of growth and reducing headcount during slowdowns.

Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Tesla has the potential to disrupt the automotive and power generation industries with its technology for EVs, AVs, batteries, and solar generation systems.

Bears

Traditional automakers and new entrants are investing heavily in EV development, which will result in Tesla seeing a deceleration in sales growth and being forced to cut prices due to increased competition, eroding profit margins.
