NVIDIA (NVDA) is expected to report second quarter earnings after the close on Thursday, August 7, with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. NVIDIA is a semiconductor manufacturer that produces graphics chips used in personal computers as well as mobile processors used in cell phones and tablets. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 20c on revenue of $1.1B. The consensus range is 16c-30c for EPS on revenue of $977M-$1.15B, according to First Call. In its last earnings report, NVIDIA said it expects Q2 revenue of $1.1B, plus or minus 2%, which was higher than analysts' consensus of $1.08B at the time. LAST QUARTER: On May 6, NVIDIA reported first quarter EPS of 29c, which beat the consensus forecast of 17c, on revenue of $1.10B, which beat analysts consensus of $1.06B. The company said that a preliminary draft of its Q1 financial results was inadvertently emailed to an internal distribution list of about 100 individuals. Because of this error, the results were provided to the market in advance of trading as a precaution. STREET RESEARCH: RBC Capital upgraded NVIDIA on May 19 to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital. On June 19, BofA/Merrill downgraded NVIDIA to Underperform from Neutral. The firm downgraded shares based on rich valuation and peak margins. Price target was $19. Pacific Crest downgraded NVIDIA to Underperform from Sector Perform on June 23. The firm's checks indicated corporate PC demand continued but motherboard manufacturers indicated consumer demand and excess inventory would drive Q3 unit sales down 5-10% quarter-over-quarter and for Q2 VGA high-end card shipments to be down more than 50% quarter-over-quarter. PRICE ACTION: Since issuing preliminary earnings on May 6, shares of NVIDIA are down over 5.6%. During morning trading, shares of NVIDIA are down 0.4% to $17.57.

08:33 EDTNVDAMorgan Stanley cautious in near-term on PC names
Morgan Stanley is more cautious on PC names near-term, given PC and HDD inventory builds quarter-to-date and weaker April ODM sales. The firm's analyst team continues to believe Q1 was a bottom in year-over-year growth, but now expects normal Q2 seasonal growth instead of above normal and thinks any recovery will likely be delayed until Q3. Morgan Stanley is cautiously optimistic on Western Digital (WDC) due to its diverse revenue drivers, sees value creation catalysts for Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) and believes Microsoft (MSFT) shares reflect the challenging PC market and Win 10. The firm is more cautious on semis such as NVIDIA (NVDA) given higher valuations, share loss at Advanced Micro (AMD), potential 2H margin pressure at Intel (INTC), and Morgan is cautious on PC DRAM stocks near-term due to weaker pricing.
