Future outlook and expert’s remarks

The chipmaker expects a $500 million hit in Q2 due to the Ukraine war and lockdowns in China. It now forecasts its revenue to fall between $7.94 billion and $8.26 billion this quarter versus analysts’ call for a higher $8.40 billion instead.

Discussing the earnings report on CNBC’s “Closing Bell”, Requisite Capital Management’s Bryn Talkington said the fundamentals of the company continue to be strong as ever, which makes it a fantastic long-term investment.

Nvidia is at the cross section of every important technology over the next 20 years. Think about AI, autonomous driving, data centre, and gaming. Those aren’t going anywhere. This is a wonderful company that’s getting stronger and stronger.
