As Wall Street eagerly anticipates Nvidia’s second-quarter earnings report, stock futures appear promising. Dominating the artificial intelligence (AI) chip market, Nvidia (NVDA) has witnessed a staggering 212% rise in stock value in 2023. Despite a minor setback on Tuesday when shares fell 2.8% after setting an all-time intraday high, the chip maker’s premarket trading was on the rise by 0.7%. Analysts predict earnings of $2.08 a share on an $11.2 billion revenue, with the report scheduled for release after Wednesday’s closing bell.

Meanwhile, across the market, a mixed bag of fortunes is unfolding. Retailer Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) and Urban Outfitters (URBN) have seen significant gains following strong second-quarter performances, while Foot Locker (FL) and Peloton Interactive (PTON) have suffered setbacks. The latter plunged by 27% in premarket trading due to a drop in subscribers and a less than optimistic fiscal outlook. Simultaneously, AMC Entertainment (AMC) is preparing for a significant shift in its trading structure, planning a reverse 1-for-10 split of its common stock on Thursday. As the market continues to fluctuate, investors keep a keen eye on these developments.

Wall Street Awaits Nvidia Earnings; Stocks on the Move

Stock futures traded higher on Wednesday as Wall Street eagerly anticipated the Q2 earnings report from Nvidia, a leading producer of chips used for artificial intelligence projects. The movement in stocks for several major companies was of special interest.

Nvidia Eyes New Heights

Nvidia (NVDA) saw a 0.7% rise in premarket trading. Despite Tuesday’s session ending with a 2.8% drop, the company’s shares are up by 212% in 2023, hitting an all-time intraday high on Tuesday. Analysts are predicting Q2 earnings of $2.08 per share on revenue of $11.2 billion. The eagerly awaited earnings report is set to be released after the closing bell on Wednesday.

Major Market Movements

Foot Locker (FL) experienced a 32% decline after cutting its fiscal year adjusted earnings outlook from $2-$2.25 a share to $1.30-$1.50 a share. Peloton Interactive (PTON) shares also took a hit, plunging 27% in premarket trading due to a decrease in subscribers and a disappointing outlook for Q1.

However, not all companies faced a downturn. Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) shares soared 15% following Q2 adjusted earnings that exceeded estimates. Urban Outfitters (URBN) also had a positive outcome, with a 7.5% jump in Q2 sales to a record $1.27 billion, beating analysts’ expectations. The company’s shares rose by 4.9%.

AMC and Others in the Limelight

AMC Entertainment (AMC) was down 8.5% in premarket trading after a 18% decline in the previous session. The company announced that AMC Preferred Equity units, also known as APES, will be converted to common stock, resulting in the trading of a single class of AMC common shares. AMC is also planning a reverse 1-for-10 split of its common stock on Thursday.

Bath & Body Works (BBWI) saw a 3.7% drop after Q2 sales of $1.559 billion marginally missed estimates. Kohl’s (KSS), on the other hand, gained 2.5% after posting Q2 earnings above estimates and maintaining its full-year guidance.

Notable Events

Advance Auto Parts (AAP) reported lower-than-expected Q2 earnings and announced a new CEO, leading to a 1.7% rise in shares. Apellis Pharmaceuticals (APLS) jumped 27% after an update on injection kits and retinal vasculitis events related to its eye-disease drug Syfovre.


These market movements highlight the impactful role earnings reports have on stock prices. Companies like Nvidia and Abercrombie & Fitch are seeing positive growth thanks to strong earnings, while others like Foot Locker and Peloton are experiencing the opposite effect due to disappointing financial results. Furthermore, announcements such as that of AMC’s stock conversion and Advance Auto Parts’ new CEO can also significantly influence a company’s stock price. It’s clear that investors need to keep a close eye on these developments to make informed decisions.
