EV stocks aren’t doing so hot on Thursday and investors can look to Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) for the reasons behind today’s dips.

The big news traders are reacting to is the company’s adjusted EPS of 85 cents alongside revenue of $23.33 billion. These are mixed results compared to Wall Street’s estimates of 85 cents per share and revenue of $23.36 billion.

Not helping matters is the decrease the company saw in its net income during the quarter. The company brought in $2.51 billion for the period, which is a 24% drop compared to the same time last year.

Finally, Tesla revealed more price cuts are coming for its EVs to remain competitive. Founder and CEO Elon Musk says this is part of the company’s plan to continue to increase its fleet even during a rough economy.

Shares of EV stocks are dropping today after Tesla missed its earnings. The price cut talk also isn’t helping other EV companies out today. Let’s get into how EV stocks are moving in response to this news below!
