Let’s go over that earnings report below!

  • First off, the company reported adjusted earnings per share of $1.17.
  • That’s a boon to NVDA stock as it beats out Wall Street’s estimate of $1.11 per share.
  • It’s also a 60% jump from the company’s adjusted EPS of 73 cents during the same time last year.
  • In addition to that, Nvidia reported revenue of $7.1 billion.
  • Yet again, that comes in well above analysts’ revenue estimate of $6.83 billion.
  • It also represents 50% growth from the $4.73 billion reported in the same period of the year prior.
  • Another highlight for NVDA stock comes from its Q4 outlook.
  • The company expects revenue for the period to come in at $7.4 billion, with a 2% variance higher or lower.
  • That would see it beating out Wall Street’s estimate of $6.86 billion for the quarter.

Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of Nvidia, said the following in its most recent earnings report.

“Demand for NVIDIA AI is surging, driven by hyperscale and cloud scale-out, and broadening adoption by more than 25,000 companies. NVIDIA RTX has reinvented computer graphics with ray tracing and AI, and is the ideal upgrade for the large, growing market of gamers and creators, as well as designers and professionals building home workstations.”

NVDA stock is up 10.3% as of Thursday morning and is up 146.4% since the start of the year.
