After 5% Rise In A Week, What’s Next For Nvidia Stock?

Nvidia stock (NASDAQ: NVDA) has seen an impressive rise of 5% over the past week and currently trades at $206 per share. This rally was driven by expectations of strong earnings growth in the company’s upcoming Q2 2022 results, expected later this month. For Q1 2022, Nvidia posted stellar revenue growth, with revenue rising to $5.66 billion from $3.08 billion in Q1 2021, which helped drive the company’s net income to $1.91 billion from $917 million over this period. The strong jump in earnings came due to a combination of shrewd expense control and a slightly lower effective tax rate.

Some Fun Scenarios, FAQs & Making Sense of Nvidia Stock Movements:

Question 1: Is the average return for Nvidia stock higher after a drop?


Consider two situations,


Case 1: Nvidia stock drops by -5% or more in a week

Case 2: Nvidia stock rises by 5% or more in a week

Is the average return for Nvidia stock higher over the subsequent month after Case 1 or Case 2?

Nvidia stock fares better after Case 1, with an average return of 4.5% over the next month (21 trading days) under Case 1 (where the stock has just suffered a 5% loss over the previous week), versus, an average return of 2.1% for Case 2.
