The Nvidia Corporation declared the financial results for the fourth quarter of the Fiscal year 2019 as the market closed on Thursday.

The analysts at Refinitiv predicted these earnings to be 75 cents for every share and the total revenue of 2.20 Billion US Dollars.
According to the founder and CEO of the firm, Mr. Jensen Huang: “This was a turbulent close to what had been a great year,”

Mr. Huang further said: “Despite this setback, NVIDIA’s fundamental position and the markets we serve are strong. The accelerated computing platform we pioneered is central to some of the world’s most important and fastest growing industries – from artificial intelligence to autonomous vehicles to robotics. We fully expect to return to sustained growth,”
