Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) was trading higher by nearly 9 percent after the electric automaker reported its second-quarter results. Tesla said it lost $3.06 per share in the quarter on revenue of $4.002 billion versus expectations of a $2.81 per share loss and $3.97 billion. The company guided to become "sustainably profitable and cash flow positive" in the back half of 2018.
