Nvidia: 2018 Crypto Winter Replay?

Nvidia just reported preliminary results for Q2 FY2023, warning a 19% revenue decline from the prior quarter. The decline was largely driven by the weakness of its gaming business, which could suffer a 44% contraction. These developments reminded me of the cryptocurrency winter it suffered in 2018. In this 2022 episode, I am seeing similar pressure from the crypto crash on both its stock prices and fundamentals. FYQ2 outlook and thesis Things have changed rapidly for Nvidia (NVDA) during the past few months. Let's start with a recap of its Q1 FY2023 earnings reported on May 31, 2022, only less than 3 months ago. In that report, its gaming segment was a bright spot. The segment raked in total revenue of $3.6 billion, a healthy 6% growth from the previous quarter and a whopping 31% growth YoY. The RTX 30 Series has reported the best Gaming product cycle ever. However, the business already felt weakness lurking. It provided an $8.1 billion sales guidance for Q2, representing a 2% contraction compared to Q1, largely driven by a sequential decline in its Gamin segment. Although the guidance still represents a 25% YoY growth. NVDA Q2 FY2023 ER Now, its Q2 preliminary results turned out to be much worse than the above guidance. According to the following Reuters report, the key takeaways are (slightly edited and emphases added by me): Nvidia Corp on Monday warned its second-quarter revenue would drop by 19% from the prior quarter on weakness in its gaming business… Nvidia said its gaming unit's preliminary revenue, which includes sales of high-end graphic cards for desktops and laptops, declined 44% from the previous quarter to $2.04 billion. So, its Q2 revenue would contract by 19% from the previous quarter instead of the anticipated 2%. And the game unit's 44% contraction reminds me of the cryptocurrency winter it suffered in 2018, as discussed immediately below. This leads me to the main thesis here too. I am seeing similar effects from the crypto crash on both its stock prices (through market psychologies) and fundamentals (through its exposure to crypto mining). Anatomy of the 2018 crypto winter The following charts show the anatomy of the 2018 crypto winter, with the top panel showing the Bitcoin USD (BTC-USD) prices and the bottom panel showing NVDA quarterly operating revenue YoY growth. As you can see from the top panel, Bitcoin prices collapsed from over $19k at the peak in 2018 to about $3.6k in a year (a decline of 81%, which would take a 427% rally to breakeven). And NVDA's quarterly operating revenue turned from a 40%+ expansion to a ~40% contraction in tandem. NVDA used to provide an estimate of its exposure to crypto mining in the past. For example, in 2018, NVDA estimated that its crypto-related sales were about $0.6B (about 5.7% of its $10.6B total sales). While another independent analyst (Mitch Steves at Business Insider) provided a much higher estimate of $1.95 billion of revenue related to crypto/blockchain (about 18.4% of its then overall revenues). I am guessing the true answer is somewhere in between the above two estimates. Currently, we are experiencing a similar collapse in bitcoin prices. Bitcoin prices plunged from over $65k in Nov 2021 to the current $23.8k (a 64% decline, which will take a 173% rally to break even). And now, we will need to estimate how much impact this collapse will create for NVDA this round. Seeking Alpha Will the 2018 crypto winter repeat? NVDA does not provide estimates of crypto-related sales anymore, and the range of estimates has become even wider in my view. On the one hand, its CFO Colette Kress commented (abridged and emphases added by me) during its FY Q1 earnings that it's difficult to get such an estimate, but NVDA expects a diminishing going forward. …the extent in which cryptocurrency mining contributed to Gaming demand is difficult for us to quantify with any reasonable degree of precision. The reduced pace of increase in Ethereum network hash rate likely reflects lower mining activity on GPUs. We expect a diminishing contribution going forward.
