Nvidia Takes a Hit as AMD Outlook Disappoints, Dragging Down Chip Stocks

Ouch! Nvidia (NVDA) investors felt a tremor run through the tech world Wednesday. After rival AI chipmaker Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) offered a less-than-stellar forecast, the mood soured, sending a wave of caution through the semiconductor sector. Nvidia wasn’t immune to the fallout, and its stock took a tumble.

AMD’s first-quarter results landed close to expectations, but sales missed the mark. Analysts were hungry for a bullish outlook, especially with the potential of AMD’s MI300 AI accelerator chips. The company did hint at bigger ambitions for MI300 over time, but the market was hoping for a more immediate supercharge.

The result? Disappointment settled over the Street, and at least a dozen analysts reined in their expectations for AMD stock. This dose of skepticism sent AMD shares plummeting 8.9%, taking Nvidia down 3.9% in sympathy.

It’s not all doom and gloom, though. Some analysts, like Evercore ISI’s Mark Lipacis, see the panic as an overreaction. With the AI chip market projected to explode, a slice of that huge pie is still a win for AMD. Nvidia, of course, is widely expected to maintain its lead in this burgeoning sector.

But what about the broader chip industry? Skyworks Solutions, heavily reliant on the softening smartphone market, faced a brutal reality check. Their earnings barely squeaked by, but guidance for the next quarter painted a bleak picture. The consequence was a 15.3% nosedive for the stock.

And like a ripple effect, the Philadelphia semiconductor index (SOX), a bellwether for the industry, took a sizable 3.5% hit.
