Nvidia’s results bode well for the PC and semiconductor industry, as the company is one of the largest makers of graphic processing units. Its results are also indicators of the health of sectors such as PC gaming hardware, graphics-enhanced data center computing, deep learning, and car computing. The general PC market isn’t booming like it once did, but Nvidia has cleverly diversified itself into other markets, including gaming hardware, professional visualization, data centers,automotive electronics and most recently, deep learning.

Nvidia has an estimated 81 percent share of the discrete graphics card market, according to Jon Peddie Research. Nvidia’s stock is rising at $61 a share in after-hours trading. Nvidia’s outlook for the third fiscal quarter is revenue of $1.68 billion and gross profit margins of 58 percent.

These certainly are some healthy looking fundamentals. In any case, keep a close watch on Nvidia and related tech companies!
