What to Look for From Tesla This Week

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which industrials editor/analyst Isaac Pino and technology editor/analyst Brenton Flynn discuss topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, Isaac and Brenton discuss a rule-breaking car company, Tesla Motors. The company is set to report earnings for the first quarter on Wednesday, and analysts predict a widening loss compared to last year's first-quarter results. However, the more interesting takeaways will revolve around the production status for the Model S and the progress in introducing the crossover vehicle Model X. Also, look for CEO Elon Musk to answer some questions on the cash position of the company. Musk dismissed concerns in the last earnings call, stating, "I feel confident saying that Tesla does not need to ever raise another financing round," but investors and customers will be paying close attention to Tesla's efficiency in this cash-hungry business.

On the whole, Tesla has yet to prove electric cars can breakthrough on a larger scale, but the vision of its CEO is impressive.
