"I want to be clear: There is not a demand problem," Musk said at the company's annual meeting with shareholders on Tuesday evening. "Sales have far exceeded production and production has been pretty good so we're actually doing well."
Tesla shares had jumped 4% in premarket trading Wednesday, before turning negative. By Wednesday's close, the stock was down 3.6%
Musk also said "it won't be long" before the company has an electric car with a range of 400 miles.
In a note to investors after the meeting, Cowen questioned Musk's confidence, saying "basic microeconomic theory would suggest that goods or services that don't have a demand problem don't see their prices lowered by half a dozen times in 4-5 months." Cowen has an underperform rating and a $140 price target on Tesla shares.
Baird, on the other hand, said "the narrative is overly negative," adding that "bear arguments will be disproven in the coming weeks and months." Baird has a $340 price target and an outpeform rating on the stock. The firm said there have been "several signs of steady demand over the past few weeks," a point Musk emphasized during the presentation. Musk said 90% of Tesla's orders are coming "from non-reservation holders, so these are new customers," he said.
Tesla's stock is down nearly 35% for the year as of Tuesday's close of $217.10 a share but the stock has slowly come back after hitting a low of $179 a share last week.
A key metric for Tesla sales bounced back last month, as the company's Model 3 vehicle saw deliveries higher than expected in May. Overall, Tesla increased total U.S. sales in the month of May by 73% from a year earlier, according to data from Motor Intelligence.
"We continue to see the shares in a tug of war between skeptics and extreme believers, where we have fallen into the skeptical camp for several years," Cowen said.
