Tesla CEO Elon Musk may have something "really important" to say in the EV maker's next quarterly earnings call with analysts in January.

At least if you go by his pledge in July that he will skip the calls unless there's something really big he wants to comment on. 

After missing a call in October, Musk on Monday revealed his intention to participate once again as he responded on Twitter to a request for an update on the company’s Cybertruck project.

“This year has been such a supply chain nightmare (and) it’s not over,” Musk wrote. “I will provide an updated product roadmap on the next earnings call.”

Discussion on Cybertruck expected

Based on his Monday tweet, Musk is expected to discuss the Cybertruck, which was unveiled in 2019 and is expected to be rolled out in 2022. Tesla initially planned to start producing the EV in 2021, but delayed its plans while also postponing the production of an all-electric tractor-trailer.

The Cybertruck is due to be built at Tesla’s Gigafactory near Austin, Texas, which is still under construction.

Tesla reported in July that microchip and battery shortages have delayed production of the Cybertruck and the company’s proposed semi truck.

Chip challenges

“So in order for Cybertruck and semi to scale to volume that's meaningful for customer deliveries, we've got to solve the chip shortage working with our suppliers,” Musk said in July.

Musk indicated that the company could produce its own chip related to Cybertruck, but added that development of such a semiconductor would take 12 to 18 months.

Tesla plans to roll out its Model Y sedan at the Austin Gigafactory before it produces the Cybertruck there.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
