Nvidia's AI Inflection Point
Strong financial results for Nvidia (Nasdaq: NVDA) sent the technology stock up 8.89% in after-hours trading on Wednesday.
Financials: Nvidia reported earnings of 88 cents per share and revenue of $6.05 billion; both were better than expected.
Details: While both revenue and earnings were down year-over-year, revenue for the data center segment increased by 11%.
Quote: "AI is at an inflection point, setting up for broad adoption reaching into every industry. From startups to major enterprises, we are seeing accelerated interest in the versatility and capabilities of generative AI.” - Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of Nvidia.
But: Revenue for gaming decreased by 46% year-over-year.
Final Thoughts: Huang also said that gaming revenue has recovered “from the post-pandemic downturn,” although it is still pretty bad. AI is a good buzzword right now, especially generative AI, and Nvidia is capitalizing. The stock is up 8% in the last 30 days.
