Nvidia Stock Falls On Q2 Revenue Warning
Shares of the semiconductor giant Nvidia (NVDA) dropped more than 7% early Monday morning. This comes after the company pre-announced its second-quarter revenue of $6.7 billion. For context, previously the company provided guidance of $8.1 billion in revenue for the quarter. The semiconductor company reported the shortfall for May’s revenue outlook was mainly contributed to lower-sell-in of gaming products, which reflects a drop in channel partner sales likely due to macroeconomic headwinds.
“Our gaming product sell-through projections declined significantly as the quarter progressed,” said Jensen Huang, founder, and CEO of NVIDIA. “As we expect the macroeconomic conditions affecting sell-through to continue, we took actions with our Gaming partners to adjust channel prices and inventory.” As of Monday morning, shares of NVDA stock are currently trading at $178.36 per share.
