Tesla's  (TSLA) - Get Tesla Inc. Report reported second quarter will be a pandemic quarter. Here's what to watch for as sales and earnings rebound going forward. 

Tesla reports on July 22 and not only is the stock is up 317% since the bear market low in late March, but it's also up 51% in the past month to $1,507 and trading at an expensive valuation, at 120 times next year's earnings per share. 

Here's what analysts are expecting for the quarter: 

  • Sales: $5 billion (-21% year-over-year)
  • Gross Margin: 17% 
  • Deliveries: 81,000 (-14%) 
  • Company said it delivered 90,000
  • EBITDA: $701 million 
  • Adjusted Net Loss Per Share: 14 cents 
  • Negative Free Cash Flow: $396 million 

"What we need to keep in mind is that the factory in fremont was shut down for a significant portion of the quarter, about 7 weeks or so," said Rob Maurer, TheStreet's Tesla Maven and Head of Tesla Daily. "As we move forward to Q3 when they have a full quarter of production, we should see delivery numbers jump significantly from that 90,000 level, maybe even up to 150,000 for Q3."

Underlying demand for electric vehicles has remained strong in 2020 despite the headwinds. As Tesla continue to manufacture, it should be business as usual. 

The question now: how much more can the stock run in the near-term?
