Nvidia (NVDA) reports its Q1 results after the closing bell on Wednesday, May 22nd. We preview what to expect from Nvidia’s earnings and analyse its stock's technicals.

Analysts expect another quarter of extraordinary growth

According to Bloomberg data, analysts expected another quarter of massive top-line and bottom-line growth from Nvidia. Revenues are forecast to rise 243.3% in the first quarter, underpinning a 418% rise in earnings per share to $5.65.

The company’s financial performance remains predominantly driven by its data centre segment, which is projected to deliver another quarter of explosive sales growth. Revenues are expected to crack $21 billion, marking a 390% increase from a year earlier.

Nvidia’s results have continually defied even the loftiest expectations, with analysts looking to the company for guidance about future performance. As base effects kick in following the onset of the artificial intelligence boom, growth is tipped to moderate in Q2, albeit still at a rate that would see revenue and earnings growth double.

Risks to the outlook include geopolitical tensions between the US and China that could manifest in trade barriers, slowing demand from weaker economic activity, and the levels of cloud spending, particularly from the major tech giants that make up Nvidia’s largest customers. Double-ordering remains a concern; however, those concerns are diminishing.

Technical analysis: Nvidia shares re-test record highs

Nvidia shares are retesting record highs, having risen in response to softer US labour market data and moderating US CPI data that fuelled a repricing of US Federal Reserve rate cut expectations. Major resistance is around Nvidia shares’ all-time highs at $975. Perhaps ominously, price action is carving out an ascending wedge, which, technically speaking, could signal a looming pullback. A break of trendline support could spark a retracement in the stock.
