Nvidia beat earnings expectations and provided a better-than-expected outlook for the current quarter, leading the stock higher during after-hours trading. Discussion centered on AI, or artificial intelligence, and Nvidia's confident outlook hinted at strong demand for its chips in 2023, when said technology becomes an increasingly important topic. Nvidia has the advantage of being the dominant player in the GPU market, which is a key component of AI systems. Investors are therefore growing optimistic about AI and Nvidia will benefit from this growing demand.
Although desktop sales were down, sales were better than expected and there were early signs of a recovery in demand in gaming. This has been made possible by the reopening of the market in China and a new partnership with Microsoft in gaming. These results exceeded expectations after a broad slowdown in spending on computers and computer games. Nvidia's shares started the year strongly, gaining 42% to become one of the best performing companies in the Nasdaq and outperforming its peers*.
