UPDATE: Nvidia's server sales spike, stock jumps in late trading

8:13 pm ET February 13, 2020 (MarketWatch)

Gaming sales come in light, but AI-driven data-center revenue beats Wall Street view by more than $140 million

Nvidia Corp. shares rallied in the extended session Thursday after the chip maker's data-center sales and outlook topped Wall Street estimates while returning to revenue growth.

Outsize data-center gains in the fourth quarter made up for a small shortfall in gaming sales. Nvidia reported a 56% gain in gaming sales from a year ago to $1.49 billion, while analysts had forecast $1.52 billion, versus a 43% surge in data-center sales to a record $968 million, more than $140 million above the Wall Street consensus of $825.8 million.

Nvidia (NVDA) shares increased 5.2% in after-hours trading, after closing down 0.7% Thursday at $270.78. Over the past 12 months, Nvidia shares have gained 77%. In comparison, the S&P 500 index has gained 23%, the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite Index has grown 31%, and the PHLX Semiconductor Index has increased 46% in that time.

"The primary driver for growth is AI," Nvidia Chief Executive Jensen Huang said about data-center sales on a conference call Thursday. Huang told analysts that AI is being driven by four areas: recommendation, which is a more personalized version of search; inference, where a system applies rules to a database to deduce new information; public cloud and vertical industries; and edge AI, or running AI processing on a device without a cloud connection.

The fourth quarter proved to be a big one for data-center sales as cloud providers and hyperscalers opened up their capital-expenditure pocketbooks. This past earnings season, Intel Corp. (INTC) reported $800 million more in data-center sales than Wall Street had expected (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/intel-stock-rallies-as-data-center-sales-drive-big-wall-street-beat-2020-01-23), while Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD) also reported strong growth in data-center sales (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/amd-stock-slides-as-outlook-falls-below-wall-street-view-2020-01-28) even though specifics were masked as poor console sales dragged down its combined reporting segment.

Nvidia reported fourth-quarter net income of $950 million, or $1.53 a share, compared with $567 million, or 92 cents a share, in the year-ago period. Adjusted earnings were $1.89 a share. Total revenue rose to $3.11 billion for its first gain in four quarters, compared with $2.21 billion in the year-ago quarter.

Analysts surveyed by FactSet had forecast earnings of $1.67 a share on revenue of $2.96 billion.

"Nvidia had an incredible quarter with record revenue in many places," said Patrick Moorhead, principal analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy. "Key drivers were PC gaming, driven by RTX and SUPER lines; data-center, driven by cloud giants with machine learning; and even growth in professional visualization."

The company expects revenue of $2.94 billion to $3.06 billion for the first quarter, while analysts had forecast revenue of $2.85 billion. Nvidia said its revenue outlook accounts for a $100 million reduction from original estimates due to expected headwinds from the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak.

On the call, Chief Financial Officer Colette Kress said it's still too early to foresee the impact from COVID-19 but the figure was calculated by splitting supply challenges and overall demand against both gaming and data-center sales. China accounts for about 30% of gaming sales and the outbreak could depress gaming sales by low double-digits sequentially, Kress said, while data-center sales from China tend to vary from quarter to quarter and are more difficult to determine.
