Tesla (TSLA) reported earnings after the close yesterday and beat expectations on both the top and bottom line.  The stock is set to open higher by just over 7% when the bell rings this morning, which would be its 15th gap higher on earnings out of the 50 quarterly results the company has posted since going public.  Below is a snapshot of the 14 prior gaps higher of 5%+ in reaction to earnings for Tesla as shown in our Earnings Explorer tool.  Historically, the stock has averaged a slight decline of 1.4% from the open to the close of trading on these 14 prior earnings reaction days, with positive returns from the open to close 5 out of 14 times.  Twice out of 14 times, TSLA has gapped up 5%+ on earnings only to finish the day lower because of sharp intraday reversals.  These two reversals came on back-to-back earnings releases in April and July of 2020.  Only once has TSLA tacked on another 5%+ from the open to the close after gapping up 5%+, and that came back in August 2018 when shares opened up 9.2% and went up another 6.4% intraday for a full-day gain of 16.2%.

In today’s Morning Lineup, we also take a look at a few bullish chart patterns we’ve identified across key US sectors and groups.
