Nvidia shares spiked by Windows 8 for ARM

Written by Fuad Abazovic


CES 2011: ARM matters, or so it seems
Analysts all over the world are super excited about Microsoft's confirmation that Windows 8 that can run on x86 and ARM.

Nvidia shares have spiked to $19.20 at press time, some 13.31 percent up. Just for comparison, Nvidia was at $16.05 on Wednesday,  January 5, and since then the stock grew by some 30 percent.

At the same time ARM opened at $23.64 and fell to $21.88 yesterday, thanks to market “experts”. Today it is again slightly lower that it opened, but there is still some time before the market closes. It should be clear that without ARM there won't be Tegra or Denver or any other TI or Qualcomm ARM chips, so it would be natural to see ARM spiking together with Nvidia. Try not to make sense out of the stock market, it can be logical as a the winning strategy in black jack in Las Vegas. (Don't gamble away our pension plan. sub.ed.)

Qualcomm moved by less than one percent and they have the most chips in mobile phones based on ARM, while Texas Instruments, another leader in the ARM market just went up by less than two percent.

Kudos to Jen Hsun Huang, Nvidia's CEO who convinced the market that they are worth jumping 30 percent in a matter of days, despite the fact that you still can't buy an actual Tegra 2 product anywhere. He really is a master of show business and politics and we wonder if he could become the next Schwarzenegger.

nice. i just pray for a long lasting battery. if it runs like it did during his keynote yesterday, and the touch screen is actually up to par on sensitivity, i'll check out phones with an nVIDIA SoC first when i upgrade from my old and slow HTC Touch Diamond with the Qualcomm 528MHz running WM6.1, with Mighty ROM and SPB Shell.

Another Schwarzenegger because ... his name recognitionis off the charts?

He's a world famous actor?

He's a world famous medical oddity because he's a CEO walking around with someone's head stuck up his ass?

The stock market is always forward looking. Prior to Wednesday, NVidia's income is consisted of mostly graphics cards and HPC. With the latest announcements, this quarter NVidia will add Tegra 2 (all those tablet makers have already place orders), and then a few quarters later, ARM CPU too.

Those are two additional revenue streams for NVidia. No wonder the stock took off. The other companies mentioned in the article, their stock didn't budge because their future outlooks were already priced in.

Kudos to Jen Hsun Huang.......

LOLLLLLLLLLLLLL LLLLLLLLLLL!!!! I guess you feel much better now than in August with the stock @ 9 dollars. I guess your whole property is in shares of Nvidia and that's why you are so happy.
Another proof that Fudzilla is nothing more than an Nvidia marketing department.

He who finds proof of something from nothing is a fool.
