A big Tesla skeptic on Wall Street raises his estimate for second-quarter earnings
Tesla got a boost Friday from one of its biggest Wall Street skeptics, who now sees Elon Musk's electric car company headed to a nearly profitable second-quarter earnings report. Tesla shares rose 0.6% in Friday's premarket from its previous close of $253.54. Its stock surged in early July after Tesla reported a record second-quarter deliveries number.
