Tesla beat analysts’ projections for its first quarter, but shares in the company fell more than 8% in after-hours trading after the company’s Model S sales didn’t hit analysts’ highest estimate.

Tesla reported sales of 6,457 cars for the quarter, which was below the top estimate of 6,600. Tesla had predicted it would sell 6,400 in the quarter, but many analysts assumed the company was lowballing its estimate

The 8% drop may also have come after investors digested CEO and Founder Elon Musk’s statement that the company will be “slightly free cash flow negative in 2014.” The drop comes after the company’s stock price rose 269% over the past year Read more…

Google shut down its online Google Glass store Wednesday, but the tech giant isn’t sharing details on how many units it sold

The company sold Glass to the public on Tuesday and Wednesday morning, which was the first time consumers could buy the device without having to apply to Google’s Explorer program. The site will remain active so interested customers can purchase accessories, should they choose, but no more Glass units will be sold, according to a Google spokesperson

Google was selling Glass for $ 1,500 a pair

Although the store shut down, it doesn’t appear that Google actually sold all of its Glass. Visitors to the site will see “Out of Stock” labels on each color, but Google is simply marking them that way — not necessarily confirming they are sold out Read more…

Salesguy.org publishes a list of the Top 10 Sales Books based on seller opinion. My favorites are SPIN selling, Miller Heiman ‘s books and the Top 25 Habits of Successful Sales people. For straight sales metrics, I highly recommend salesguy.org’s publications.
