In today’s video I look at Nvidia‘s (NASDAQ:NVDA) most recent earnings and share my thoughts on some bullish and bearish views on its earnings report. Here are some highlights from the video:
- Nvidia reported its second-quarter 2021 earnings after the market closed on Aug. 18. The company reported 68% year-over-year revenue growth and 15% sequential revenue growth. The increase in revenue was driven mainly by its record sales in its gaming and data center segments.
- Guidance for the upcoming quarter is $6.8 billion in revenue, representing 44% YOY growth. Unfortunately, that means only low-single-digit sequential revenue growth, which may have some investors worried about Nvidia’s growth story. During the earnings call, management explained that one of the most significant issues for Nvidia is that its supply cannot keep up with demand.
- In its balance sheet, Nvidia ended the quarter with $19.65 billion in cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities, an increase of roughly $7 billion in one quarter. Due to longer lead times throughout the supply chain, Nvidia has also increased its outstanding inventory purchases and long-term supply obligations.
