Tesla Earnings Report: Delivery Guidance Is The Number To Look For Says Analyst

Delivery guidance for 2021 will be the key number to watch for in the Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) first-quarter earnings report, Wedbush Securities analyst Daniel Ives said Monday on CNBC's "Squawk Box."

Ives thinks Tesla might report guidance of close to 900,000 vehicles after the bell, he said.
