Tesla beats by $1.53, beats on revs; guides FY20 deliveries above consensus (580.99 +14.09)
Reports Q4 (Dec) earnings of $2.14 per share, excluding non-recurring items, $1.53 better than theConsensus of $0.61; revenues rose 2.2% year/year to $7.38 bln vs the $7.05 bln S&P Capital IQ Consensus. GAAP gross profit of $4.1B remained essentially flat in 2019 compared to 2018.
Volume growth and successful cost reduction efforts were offset by normalization of ASP, mix shift towards Model 3 and a higher lease mix. Sequentially, GAAP gross margin remained relatively flat in Q4 at 18.8% vs. 18.6% consensus, while we ramped Model 3 production at Gigafactory Shanghai.
Auto gross margin -30 bps QoQ to 22.5%.
For full year 2020, vehicle deliveries should comfortably exceed 500,000 units vs. ests near 475K. Due to ramp of Model 3 in Shanghai and Model Y in Fremont, production will likely outpace deliveries this year. Both solar and storage deployments should grow at least 50% in 2020.
Reiterates positive GAAP net income and FCF with temporary exceptions due to the lunch of new products
Production ramp of Model Y in Fremont has begun, ahead of schedule.
Model 3 production in Shanghai is continuing to ramp while Model Y production in Shanghai will begin in 2021. We are planning to produce limited volumes of Tesla Semi this year.
