Analysts were unimpressed after Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced a cheaper Model 3 on Thursday afternoon.

Shares of the company were down more than 3 percent in pre-market trading to $319.88. Investors also reacted to Musk’s comments that it wouldn’t be profitable in the first quarter.

Barclays analyst Brian Johnson probably had the coldest reaction, calling it the “un-iPhone moment.”

Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas also seemed skeptical, noting, “While this may stabilize the air-pocket in Q1 sales, we’re concerned it’s a sign of a brand that may be, at the margin, losing its halo of exclusivity.”

“We think the bears have more material to work with than bulls here,” Jonas added.
