Read MoreHide Full Article

Nvidia (NVDA - Free Report) reported blockbuster fourth-quarter fiscal 2021 results after market close yesterday, wherein it outpaced the Zacks Consensus Estimate on earnings and revenues. The company offered an upbeat guidance for the ongoing quarter.

Earnings per share came in at $3.10, beating the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $2.80 and improving 64% from year-ago earnings. Revenues jumped 61% year over year to a record $5 billion and outpaced the consensus mark of $4.83 billion. The company recorded $5 billion for the first time on higher demand for holiday gaming chips and renewed interest in cryptocurrency mining, which met with supply shortages.

The strong results were also driven by record revenues in gaming and data center business. Gaming revenues jumped 67% year over year to $2.50 billion while data center sales surged 97% to $1.90 billion. Cryptocurrency mining also drove revenues during the quarter. The company expects the new mining chips to generate about $50 million revenues in its fiscal first quarter (read: More Good News for Bitcoin: ETFs in Focus).

Nvidia provided revenue guidance for the fiscal first quarter of $5.30 billion (+/-2%). This is more than double the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $2.53 billion. While the flagship gaming chips are expected to remain in tight supply for the next several months, any stay-at-home mandate should boost demand for chips that speed up video games.

The robust results and an upbeat guidance pushed shares of NVIDIA higher by 2% in after-hours trading on elevated volume.
