The Entrepreneur Index™ Is Down on Friday (and So Is Tesla's Target Price)
Grow Your Business, Not Your Inbox

Wall Street research firm Cowen lowered its price target from $200 to $180 on Friday due to data that seemed to point at the idea that Tesla's quarterly deliveries will fall below expectations.
Analyst Jeff Osborne lowered his forecast for Model 3 deliveries by 13.6 percent (from 55,000 to 47,500. and his forecast for Model S and Model X deliveries by 14.0 percent (from 21,500 to 18,000., based on data from government and third-party sources.
