Delayed Model 3 deliveries and a behind report electric roughly lorry have pushed shares of Tesla down roughly 9% given a center of September.

That drop, joined with other hiccups in September, has already netted short sellers a cold $160 million – and there could be some-more event for traders to gamble opposite a stock, according to Barclays.

In a note to clients Monday, a investment bank pronounced hype around Tesla’s Semi “is during slightest a short-term trade event to float Tesla down,” and that any probable “iPhone moment” investors were watchful for “appears reduction certain.”

“So when faced with hurdles to a sincerity of a ramp – mostly encapsulated in tweets, as against to a some-more conservatively created and compliance/legal accessible versions of a quarterly shareholder letters – there could be some detriment in confidence,” Johnson says.
