It’s been a turbulent week for investors in the electric vehicle (EV) maker You’re here (NASDAQ:TSLA). TSLA stock is down slightly over the week. However, stocks are now in the green, up less than 1%.

Today, the volatility linked to the highly publicized departure from Tesla’s autopilot division chief has been overshadowed by interest in future income. The company’s second quarter report will be released on July 20. While many pundits suggest the results will be hard to swallow, investors appear to be “getting the upper hand” on bets that Tesla can beat lowered expectations.

Tesla’s performance over the past quarter will be watched very closely. However, investors will also likely focus on the company’s forward-looking statements regarding future demand and operational issues in Shanghai and Texas.

Let’s dive into what TSLA stock investors will want to watch out for in the earnings report.

What to watch with TSLA Stock next week

This could be one of Tesla’s most important earnings reports. On the one hand, supply chain disruptions and soaring inflation could negatively impact margins. That’s something we haven’t seen in a while, with Tesla managing to post impressive margins in recent quarters. As a result, there’s a lot to digest from a retrospective basis.

However, as mentioned, the market is looking to the future. This means that how the company describes its global production risks in the future will be particularly important. With crypto prices plummeting, how does the company account for its Bitcoin (BTC-USD) losses will also be interesting.

Finally, demand forecasts will be an important factor for TSLA stock investors to consider. With concerns about the impending recession, it remains to be seen how many consumers can afford luxury vehicles like Tesla.

All in all, it’s shaping up to be a tough quarter for Tesla to beat expectations.
