CFO Colette Kress’s compensation was $13.3 million, up 22%.

Nvidia’s stock gained 216%, fueled by its AI chips and GPU market moats. With a nearly $2.3 trillion market value, it is one of the world’s most valuable companies.

This financial success also increased median employee pay to $266,939, up 17% from the previous year.

Nvidia analysts flagged potential upside from its strong pricing power. They noted a considerable upside to fiscal 2026 earnings that is still not fully priced.

Meanwhile, Nvidia remains vulnerable to the brewing geopolitical tensions between the U.S. and China as the latter retaliated to Washinton’s advanced semiconductor technology embargo. However, the company always maintained any significant impact from the bans.
