Alger Capital made the following comment about Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) in its Q4 2022 investor letter:

Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) is an electric vehicle manufacturer with a significant technological lead in its large and rapidly growing addressable market. Shares underperformed during the quarter as it confronted transportation capacity issues that caused deliveries to fall short of estimates, as well as developing demand softness. Moreover, the demand softness became evident in increased Model 3 and Y discounts, the introduction of supercharging credits, some consumers deferring purchases until the Inflation Reduction Act EV purchase incentives become effective in January 2023, and other consumers who may be influenced by higher financing rates or deterred from initiating a high-ticket purchase. Despite these near-term difficulties, we remain constructive on EV innovation, adoption, and Tesla’s growth prospects over the long-term.”
