Tesla CEO Elon Musk will take crowdsourced question from retail investors at Q1 2018 earnings call
During electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla’s first-quarter 2018 earnings call this week, CEO Elon Musk will take a crowdsourced question from Tesla retail investors. Generally, individual investors who independently make investments in stocks, don’t get a chance to ask questions during earnings call.
In a recent Twitter post, Musk has apparently agreed to the proposal of fielding a crowdsourced question from Tesla retail investors at the company’s forthcoming quarterly earnings call.
The development is noteworthy because usually institutional investors usually get a chance to question management at the company’s quarterly earnings call. The venue for retail investors to ask questions is the company’s annual shareholders’ meeting which, for the year 2018, will be held in June.
Generally, at its quarterly earnings call, Tesla releases the results for a recently-ended quarter. The announcement of quarterly results is followed by a public conference call with financial analysts and the Tesla management.
Despite the fact that quarterly earnings call mostly unfolds an opportunity for the analysts from Wall Street firms to seek certain clarifications from the company’s management and to ask some more details with regard to the quarterly results, Musk’s candidness generally steers the conversation at the company’s quarterly earnings call towards a discussion about Tesla’s future plans and products.
