Following the second quadruple-digit drop in the Dow for the past week, Q4 earnings reports released after the bell has provided somewhat of a bounce-back for stocks that outperformed. A huge number of late earnings are hitting the tape; here are some of the highlights:
One of the biggest tech plays of 2017, NVIDIA (NVDA - Free Report) , keeps the good news coming with a major beat on top- and bottom-lines after Thursday’s closing bell. Shares are up 11% following 80% growth in earnings to $1.78 per share, far in front of the $1.16 per share expected. Revenues in the quarter, themselves up 34% year over year, posted $2.91 billion, well ahead of the $2.67 billion we had anticipated. For more on NVDA’s earnings, click here.
