    Why Nvidia earnings couldn't sustain market rally: Strategist

    Markets are slightly rallying (^DJI, ^IXIC, ^GSPC) as they recover from recent losses, defying the expectations of investors who hoped that Nvidia's (NVDA) earnings would substantially boost markets. To shed light on this dynamic, Truist Co-Chief Investment Officer and Chief Market Strategist Keith Lerner joins the Morning Brief to discuss the underlying factors behind current market behavior. Lerner attributes the muted market reaction to the elevated expectations surrounding Nvidia's earnings report. He compares "the anticipation of this report" to the level of anticipation typically seen for inflation or economic data releases. However, he notes that in such instances, "regardless of the number, the markets often act differently than you would expect." As earnings season draws to a close, Lerner notes that market focus is shifting away from individual company results and toward the broader question of "what is the Fed gonna do?" Lerner notes the next catalyst that could propel markets higher would be the emergence of "more disinflationary pressures."

    Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang: We're building AI factories

    It's hard to find a company that has gained more from the AI boom than Nvidia (NVDA). In the first quarter, the company posted a 262% rise in revenue. Its Data Center unit specifically saw its revenue soar 427% year over year to $22.6 billion. Why? Nvidia founder and CEO Jensen Huang says its because the company is basically making "AI factories." "These AI factories are essentially what we build. We build it as a holistic unit, as a holistic architecture and platform, but then we disaggregate it so that our partners could take it and put it into data centers of any kind," Huang tells Yahoo Finance in an exclusive interview. When it comes to demand for these products, Huang claims it's "so strong," adding "Hopper demand grew throughout this quarter after we announced Blackwell, and so that kind of tells you how much demand there is out there. People want to deploy these data centers right now." Be sure to check out the full interview with Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang. This post was written by Stephanie Mikulich.

    Investing in the next phase of AI race after Nvidia earnings

    The AI trade is still alive and well! Chip powerhouse Nvidia (NVDA) beat its fiscal first-quarter earnings, reported on Wednesday, and CEO Jensen Huang believes artificial intelligence will continue to be a "giant market opportunity" for the company. Creative Strategies CEO and Principal Analyst Ben Bajarin and Harvest Portfolio Management Co-CIO and Wall Street Beats Partner Paul Meeks sit down with Yahoo Finance's Market Domination to share their perspectives on Nvidia's positive quarter and where the company can go in artificial intelligence inferencing, or the process of training an AI model by running new data through it. "This is where the works really gotta come in to really understand where these workloads are going to go. Looking at where a lot of big businesses and enterprises are going to want to run their workloads, either in the cloud or on PRAM, and I do believe there's something to this," Bajarin lays out. "AI factories, sovereign AI, that's going to happen. But does that mean that's totally Nvidia systems? I think that's that's still an open question. It's really going to come down to cost." Bajarin and Meeks also weigh in on where other hyperscaler cloud service providers and PC companies fit into the greater AI race.
