Nvidia shares and report
Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA)'s financial report showed that the chipmaker's revenue and profit growth remain strong and exceed analyst estimates.
Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA) shares reacted with a 6% decline on the release of its Q1 fiscal 2023 report (ended April 30) after the close of trading.
Nvidia shares have lost 42.3% since the beginning of the year but were up 5% in the run-up to the report at the close of trading as Wall Street analysts were convinced of the strength of Nvidia's data centre segment.
Nvidia's report showed strong earnings and revenue growth, but the chipmaker provided a softer-than-expected outlook for the current quarter. Moreover, Nvidia's lower earnings forecast led to a decline in shares of AMD, Marvell Technology, Micron, Western Digital and other chip makers.
