TESLA range bound, due to report Q1 earnings on Wednesday

    (${instrument.percentChange}%)

Tesla is set to release its first-quarter earnings on Wednesday, with investors interested in the impact of recent price cuts on margins and demand for the company's electric vehicles. Analysts predict adjusted earnings of 86 cents a share and sales of $23.8 billion for the quarter.

The recent price cuts are a potential headwind for margins, but the company's superior cost structure and industrywide affordability concerns make them less problematic for Tesla.

Despite recent stock declines, some analysts believe Tesla will be able to maintain industry-leading operating margins and weather economic headwinds. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recently announced new rules to boost EV adoption, which could benefit Tesla due to its manufacturing capabilities. Tesla is scheduled to host a question-and-answer webcast to discuss the earnings report and outlook after the release.
