Micron's Outlook Falls Short

Despite posting better-than-expected financial earnings results, Micron Technology (Nasdaq: MU) fell 7.98% in after-hours trading on Wednesday.

Financial Earnings: Micron reported earnings of 62 cents per share in the past quarter and revenue of $6.81 billion; both were better than expected.

Outlook: The company expects revenue to be around $7.6 billion in the current quarter, but investors and analysts wanted a higher outlook.

Stock Price: Micron is up 72.89% this year, but rival Nvidia (Nasdaq: NVDA) is up 162.40%.

Early Bird’s Nest Egg Gains: Both Micron and Nvidia create technology for AI graphics processing units, but there are differences between the companies.

  • Micron’s revenue is up 81% year-over-year while Nvidia’s revenue is up 262%.

  • While Micron benefits from AI with its memory chips, Nvidia's role in the AI ecosystem is more pivotal and varied, involving GPUs, software, and other AI-related technologies.
