Will Tesla (TSLA) Stock Be Helped By Positive Barclays (BCS) Note?

Updated to correct: This article previously stated that Tesla's yearly vehicle sales forecast was 7,500, and should have read that that is their quarterly sales forecast.

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Tesla Motors (TSLA) shares are down -0.3% to $222.66 in after-hours trading on Monday continuing the decline it experienced during trading today.

However, a note from a Barclays (BCS) analyst said that demand for the electric vehicle maker in China should offset any lower European demand the company may face.

The note also predicts that the company will meet its 7,500 vehicle sales forecast for the quarter while estimating that 1,300 vehicles may have already been delivered to China this quarter, citing Chinese media reports.
