Nvidia's "Exceptional Demand"

Shares of Nvidia (Nasdaq: NVDA) fell 2.64% in after-hours trading on Wednesday after the technology company posted positive earnings.

Financials: Nvidia reported earnings of $1.32 per share and revenue of $7.64 billion; both were better than expected.

Good Numbers: The company said it expects to hit $8.1 billion in revenue in the current quarter, which is better-than-expected guidance. In the past quarter, Nvidia experienced record revenue for its gaming, data center, and professional visualization segments.

Quote: “We are seeing exceptional demand for Nvidia computing platforms. Nvidia is propelling advances in AI, digital biology, climate sciences, gaming, creative design, autonomous vehicles and robotics – some of today's most impactful fields.” - Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of Nvidia.

Problems: While the financials look good for Nvidia, investors might be gloomy about the broader semiconductor market. There might be concerns about supply issues in the future.

Final Thoughts: Shares of Nvidia are up 77% in the past 12 months, but the stock has dropped nearly 12% since the new year started.

2 Russian Stocks to Avoid

With tensions rising in Europe, here are two Russian stocks that could be in trouble.

Paying: Russian payments company Qiwi (NASDAQ: QIWI) could be in bad shape if the U.S. imposes sanctions. Yes, the stock is down 39%, but it is not a good bet right now given the current circumstances.

Phones: Mobile Telesystems (NYSE: MBT) is Russia’s largest mobile network operator. While the stock price is low, the company’s operations could also be in danger if there are sanctions that prohibit consumers from paying them.

Final Thoughts: Bottom line, this may not be the best time to invest in certain Russian companies.
