Tesla stock

Tesla shares fell another 1.1% on Friday to close at their lowest level since July 26. The shares are well below their 50-day moving average. Tesla shares fell 7% Monday morning after estimates on shipments fell.

Tesla delivered 343,830 electric vehicles in the third quarter, up 42% year over year and beating the record 310,048 in the first quarter.
