More on Tesla Motors (TSLA): Q1 misses across the board, despite a 10% jump in deliveries in its European and Asian markets. The company notes initial deliveries of its Model S to customers in the United States will begin in June, one month ahead of schedule and ups FY12 guidance, now expecting to earn between $560M - $600M. Street estimates are for $561M. Shares +8% AH.

    8% up after hours after it misses estimates for EPS is still beyond me. Maybe others saw some something more promising in the Quarterly report.

    Promising...well Models S delivery brought earlier from July to June. That is promising. They finally delivery and make money (probably not profit yet, but promising). So investors (or better said speculators) are betting on Tesla's price target for the next 6-9 months. I do not know what's the situation with that immense number of shorts, but some might exit finally seeing that things start going forward (in good direction). And don't forget that many analyst estimate for Tesla share price ranges from $8-$48, which probably tells that nobody really know what's going to happen with Tesla, but now they finally are it is promising, and that is what you have been looking for.

    EPS isn't everything, especially in Tesla's case. All is riding on a succesful launch of Model S and having a demand for it.

    Opened my first business at 19. Currently 79 and going strong.
    To the Tesla non-sayers write this down.
    Toyota will eventually buy out Tesla put models in all their showrooms worldwide.
    Say goodbye to 90% of the EV makers within two years.
