[NVIDIA] NVIDIA To Return $1 Billion To Shareholders In Current Fiscal Year - Page 5

They aren't buying back shares they are giving out dividends.

According to the announcement, they are buying back shares (decrease amount of shares outstanding), as well as paying a dividend.

The return of a further $1 billion will largely be through a structured stock repurchase program, which includes the $100 million being repurchased in the current quarter. It also includes the company's quarterly dividend of $0.075 per share, which has amounted to about $50 million a quarter.

In fact, it sounds like that this return to shareholders is largely being carried out by the stock buyback, and the dividend portion of it just reflects the same dividend they have been paying all along. [note: I didn't actually check what the previous dividend was, just going off the wording]

That's extreme....

NVIDIA is a chip design company. What markets are they in? HPC, servers, consumer GPU, mobile/tablets.... basically, all the markets where a chip design company should be. If a company diversifies too much, they risk diluting their mission statement and goals. Better to do good at a few things than ok at many things.


They have most of the IP they need.... they are doing reseach into custom ARM design and intergration.... they have their roadmap for the next 3-4 years.

Yes Google is the extreme and why no use Google as the top example.

Nvidia is a GPU chip design company to be more specific. GPUs are only a fraction of just the semiconductor/chip design business and thats all they do. Even if they don't enter more markets they can grow vertically like Samsung. Thats not implying they go out and build fabs. They've survived so far just by making GPUs but even that way of business is being threatened with iGPUs being more and more satisfactory for a large number of consumer's, esp large purchasers like businesses, even if they have some guaranteed income from cross licencing.

GPU revenue increased by 2%

Tegra revenue increased by 29.3%

No, NVIDIA has not been a GPU chip design company for at least 3 years. They already realized that iGPU would hurt them so they expanded. PhysX was a failed attempt...

But they are doing well in the HPC field by pushing GPGPU. They have been doing CPU design for at least a year now since Parker (Tegra 6?) will have a custom ARM cores. That would fall in-line with Project Denver with their CPU + GPU solution for HPC.

In addition, NVIDIA's software support is quite good as well.... much better than AMD's support from what I hear.
Once again...

Though I'd like to know how much buy back they plan to do. Are they going to keep up with $100 million a quarter making $600 million in just dividends? That...is pretty good. There are a lot of companies pulling larger profits that probably don't give out that much...I should probably pick up more than 50 shares in Nvidia if I can.

Hmm their price hasn't seemed to go up yet...I need to sell at a little over $17 a share to make a profit on my Nvidia stock...and it is still in the $12 range...barely changed. So the market apparently doesn't really care about this LOL

You should never own just 50 share in a company if you are trying to make money. If you are hedging then that's another story. If you can't afford to purchase at least 1000 shares, you should look for a cheaper stock.

Was a failed attempt.
Now its a huge success.

Nvidia have been making GPU's before they even bought out 3Dfx.

This is not quite true. % return on capital is the only thing that matters, not share price. If I buy 50 shares of GOOG @ $500 and sell them for $800, then I have made $1,500 or 60% on my investment capital.

That being said, investing $600 into Nvidia by buying 50 shares seems pointless given commissions.

Disclosure: I own shares of Nvidia.

How is PhsyX a huge success? What percentage of new games support it?

CUDA is successful but will eventually be supplanted by more open standards over time.

Agreed phys-x is a monopoly software that really hasn't gone anywhere and probably never will. The only reason we hear about it is because nVidia taunts it so much. Havok is fairly open source software and is used in at least 3x the games phys-x is. You wanna see what a game centered around phys-x is? Check Cryostasis. Amazing water effects and light effects, horrible frames and poor gpu usage. I think he was making a remark to the comment that nvidia has not been a GPU chip design company for years, whatever that means.
