On October 6, 2017, the Wall Street Journal reported: “Unknown to analysts, investors and the hundreds of thousands of customers who signed up to buy it, as recently as early September major portions of the Model 3 were still being banged out by hand, away from the automated production line, according to people familiar with the matter.” This news drove the price of TSLA shares down $13.94, or nearly 4%, to close at $342.94 on October 9, 2017.
Then, on November 1, 2017, the WSJ reported (a) “Tesla said it would build 10% fewer Model S and X vehicles in the fourth quarter than the third quarter” and (b) “[t]he outlook is even worse for the Model 3 […] [i]t now expects to produce 5,000 a week by the first quarter of next year, another slippage in its timeline.” This news drove the price of TSLA shares down as much as $24.80, or nearly 8%, during intraday trading on November 2, 2017.
“We’re focused on Tesla’s apparent omissions concerning its struggle to build the Model 3 and investor damages resulting from the recent revelations,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
