Nvidia earnings have huge implications for the market rally and artificial intelligence stocks. Notable AI plays Microsoft (MSFT), Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), Google parent Alphabet (GOOGL), Meta Platforms (META), Palantir Technologies (PLTR) and Super Micro Computer (SMCI) are in or near buy areas.

In Tuesday’s session, the major indexes pulled back modestly Tuesday heading into Nvidia earnings, while small caps saw larger losses. The stock market rally still looks strong, though many leading stocks are extended.

In addition to Nvidia, Urban Outfitters (URBN), HP Inc. (HPQ), Autodesk (ADSK) and dLocal (DLO) also reported earnings Tuesday night.

ADSK and URBN stock initially rose late, but reversed lower, after both closed in buy range. DLO stock plunged after Q3 EPS and revenue fell short. HP stock fell on mixed results.

Stock Market Rally

The stock market rally retreated modestly Tuesday, with investors taking some profits ahead of Nvidia earnings.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.2% in Tuesday’s stock market trading. The S&P 500 index also lost 0.2%. The Nasdaq composite gave up 0.6%.

The Nasdaq 100 fell back from Monday’s 52-week high. The small-cap Russell 2000 fell 1.3%, hovering below the 50-day line.

U.S. crude oil prices lost 6 cents to $77.77 a barrel.

The 10-year Treasury yield was flat at 4.42%.

Minutes from the Oct. 31-Nov. 1 Fed meeting showed policymakers still worried about inflation and not thinking about rate cuts. Fed minutes had little impact on stocks or Treasury yields.

The market rally, which entered a power trend Monday, looks healthy. Tuesday was only the third down day for the S&P 500 and Nasdaq since they bottomed in late October. Leading stocks are acting well, though many are extended.

Five Best Chinese Stocks To Watch Now


Nvidia Earnings

Nvidia earnings skyrocketed 593% vs. a year earlier while revenue leapt 206% to $18.12 billion, both easily beating fiscal Q3 views. The AI chip giant also guided higher.

But after blowout beat-and-raise reports in Q1 and Q2, will that satisfy investors?

NVDA stock fell nearly 2% in active overnight trade. Shares dipped 0.9% to 499.44 in Tuesday’s session, still in range of a 476.09 buy point from a double-bottom base.

AI Stocks

Microsoft stock was flat in after-hours trading. Shares fell 1.2% to 373.07 on Tuesday, in range of a 366.78 cup-base buy point. A longer pause would let the moving averages catch up.

The OpenAI drama still isn’t over, but it appears likely that Microsoft will strengthen its hand ultimately.

AMD stock declined slightly in extended trade. Shares sank 1.9% to 119.18 on Tuesday. The Nvidia rival now has a 122.41 cup-with-handle buy point.

Google stock was flat in late action. Shares edged up 0.5% Tuesday to 136.97. Investors could use Thursday’s high of 137.22 as an early entry in a flat base. The official buy point is 141.22.

Meta stock lost a fraction overnight. Shares edged down 0.9% to 337.01 on Tuesday, within the buy zone of a consolidation going back to late July.

PLTR stock fell modestly in extended action. Shares tumbled 7.2% to 19.80 on Tuesday in an outside, downside reversal. Palantir stock fell back below a 20.24 cup buy point, according to MarketSmith analysis. On Tuesday, Palantir won a contract with the U.K.’s National Health Service, though that had been expected.

SMCI stock tilted lower in overnight trade. Shares fell 4.8% to 289.85 on Tuesday after jumping 5.55% on Monday, arguably offering an early entry. Super Micro stock has a 317.50 buy point from a less-than-ideal double-bottom buy point.

What To Do Now

The stock market rally had a modest pullback, but has shown real strength in November.

Investors should be significantly invested, taking advantage of the stream of buying opportunities in the past few weeks. At this point, many leading stocks are extended. A market pause would let some stocks forge new buy points or add-on entries.

The market rally is in a power trend, so investors can try to hold potential winners for longer, and be more willing to bet on aggressive growth plays. But stick to your sell rules.

Remember to look for new setups, updating your watchlists.
