Can Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) Overcome Its Problems

Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) shares are moving in the red after reports of inventory pile up, huge cash burn and rising debt levels. Tesla sales in July and August declined by 8% year over year. Tesla Model S sales in the second quarter came in at 12,000, while in 2015 the company sold a whopping 17,000 Model S cars in a single quarter.

However, analysts think that the upcoming semi-truck launch could be a catalyst for the stock. Tesla is also expected to benefit from the weakening dollar, as the company makes about 45% of its revenue from international car sales. Deutsche Bank increased its price target on Tesla to $320 from $240.

Over the current book year the total revenue will be 11,91 billion USD (consensus estimates). The expected revenue would be the highest in her history. This is quite more than 2016's revenue of 7 billion USD.
