Is the post-earnings Tesla share sell-off justified?

Well, considering Tesla shares have advanced +130% year to date, perhaps the positive earnings were the excuse for some investors to take some profits off the table? In other words, maybe those investors deep in the month see the good news as an opportunity to get out while price is near year-to-date highs... they could be right or they could be wrong.
