New Street Advisors' Delano Saporu has owned Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) stock for a while and he plans to hold through earnings next week, he said Wednesday on CNBC's "The Exchange."

The demand for Tesla vehicles remains strong as the company "beat heavily" on its most recent delivery numbers, Saporu said.

Tesla recently announced preliminary production and delivery numbers in which the company reported it delivered 241,300 vehicles in the third quarter.

Tesla aims to deliver more of its Model Y vehicles moving forward because the company's margins are better on the Model Y than the Model 3, Saporu said.

He told CNBC that he wants to remain long Tesla stock because he expects more from management from an execution standpoint.

"I think investors want to stay in this stock right now. We're kind of seeing a resurgence of the stock which has kind of been more of a sleepy stock over the past year," Saporu said.
