        In an upcoming announcement, Tesla is set to report its third-quarter deliveries, raising questions on whether Wall Street estimates may not decrease rapidly or significantly enough in anticipation, Barron's reported.
        Analysts' forecasts usually dip in the weeks preceding the quarter's end. Initially, Wall Street anticipated 473,000 units for Tesla's Q3; however, the consensus among FactSet-tracked analysts has dropped to 461,000 units, a 2.5% decrease.
        Contrary to this consensus, New Street Research analyst Pierre Feragu forecasts 438,000 units, a 5% decline from the current consensus. Feragu cited "Factory shutdowns to drive material miss."
