ROME (AP) — A pair of strong aftershocks shook central Italy late Wednesday, crumbling churches and buildings, knocking out power and sending panicked residents into the rain-drenched streets just two months after a powerful earthquake killed nearly 300 people.
By Narottam Medhora and Alexandria Sage SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Tesla Motors Inc reported its first quarterly net profit in more than three years on Wednesday, buoyed by nearly $139 million in sales of clean car credits, and Chief Executive Elon Musk said the company could turn a profit again in the fourth quarter. Musk told analysts the company's current plan "does not require any capital raise for the Model 3 at all." The tech billionaire said the automaker could still raise capital to "account for uncertainty ... and de-risk the business," however. The third quarter profit and a leaner capital spending plan could help grease the wheels for Musk if he does seek to tap the markets for cash.
