Nvidia share price

Nvidia stock has been under pressure this year falling 55% since Jan 2022 amid high inflation, lower demand, Covid lockdowns and supply chain constraints. Nvidia share price recently fell up to 24% in the last 6 days on below expected quarterly results due to  slowdown in PC and gaming sales, weak revenue guidance and US restricting AI chip sales to China.

Chip exports banned to China

Nvidia said in an SEC filing Wednesday that the US government is restricting sales of high-performance AI chips for servers, the A100 and H100, to China and Russia. Nvidia’s data center business, consisting of A100 and H100, is one of its fastest-growing business, with $3.8 billion in sales in the June quarter, a 61% on-year rise. Due to this, Nvidia now expects to lose $400 million in potential sales in China in the current quarter against $5.9 billion earlier expected. 

Nvidia will need new license for future exports to China, including Hong Kong, to reduce the risk its products being used by the Chinese military.  As per US govt, graphics processors made by Nvidia and AMD could also be used for weapons development, facial recognition and other military uses.

Analysts View on export ban:

“While there are potential near and intermediate term risks from the export ban, Nvidia is working closely with the [U.S. government] to navigate through the situation and we believe the USG is fully aware of the critical/strategic importance of Nvidia’s accelerated compute platform to the global tech industry,” JPMorgan analyst Harlan Sur wrote in a note Thursday.
