Why AMD Shares Are Falling

Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. AMD shares are trading lower by 2.21% to $100.05 Monday morning in sympathy with NVIDIA after the company issued preliminary second-quarter revenue guidance below estimates and cited weaker gaming revenue.

What Happened?

Nvidia sees preliminary second quarter revenue of $6.70 billion versus the previous outlook of $8.10 billion.

The company says the shortfall relative to the May revenue outlook of $8.10 billion was primarily attributable to lower sell-in of Gaming products reflecting a reduction in channel partner sales likely due to macroeconomic headwinds.

Nvidia added that in addition to reducing sell-in, the company implemented pricing programs with channel partners to reflect challenging market conditions that are expected to persist into the third quarter.

"Our gaming product sell-through projections declined significantly as the quarter progressed," said Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA. "As we expect the macroeconomic conditions affecting sell-through to continue, we took actions with our Gaming partners to adjust channel prices and inventory.
