    Nvidia posts record revenue as videogaming sales soar
    Graphics-chip company $NVIDIA(NVDA.US)$ posted another quarter of record sales amid supercharged demand for videogaming and data centers. Stocks rose around 4.8% in aftermarket trading following the results.

    Rivian shares close down 15%, bucking post-IPO rally
    $Rivian Automotive(RIVN.US)$ went public last Wednesday in one of the biggest IPOs of the year.

    ColumnWall Street Today | Day traders pile into EV stocks; Rivian has been a focus

    Asia stocks set for steady open; Yields, dollar up
    Asian stocks looked set for a steady start Wednesday as traders weigh a climb in Wall Street shares, Treasury yields and the dollar amid robust U.S. economic data and more calls for tighter monetary policy.
    Futures for Japan rose, while Hong Kong's dipped. Australia slipped at the open. U.S. futures fluctuated after equities extended their rally overnight, buoyed by robust retail sales and factory output and generally solid reports from Walmart and Home Depot. But concerns linger that high inflation could eventually bite, and Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis President James Bullard called for more hawkish monetary policy.
    JPMorgan says tech investment to power 2022 market
    Stock investors looking to 2022 should keep technology in mind not just as a growth play, but as the engine for better profit margins across the whole market, says David Lebovitz of JPMorgan Asset Management.
    Investors next year are likely to see "investment spending kick in as a key driver of economic growth," the firm's global market strategist said in an interview Tuesday on Bloomberg TV's Surveillance. "A lot of that has to do with technology."

    $Walmart(WMT.US)$ has fallen behind $Home Depot(HD.US)$ in market value despite having much higher revenue. Home Depot climbed 4.5%, while Walmart fell 2.1% on Tuesday.
    The shift reflects investors' growing concerns about Walmart this year, even as $Costco(COST.US)$, $Target(TGT.US)$ and $The Kroger(KR.US)$ have outpaced the broader U.S. stock market. After Walmart stock posted double-digit returns last year and in 2019, the shares have stagnated amid questions about its prospects for long-term growth.
    Qualcomm hits record high after it tells investors it will grow without Apple

    Morgan Stanley economists see 2023 Fed hike, differ with CEO
    $Morgan Stanley(MS.US)$ economists are sticking with their prediction that the Federal Reserve won't raise interest rates until 2023, breaking ranks with their own chief executive officer.
    The economists sound more dovish than Morgan Stanley CEO James Gorman. He expressed concern last month that "money is a bit too free and available right now," and said the Fed should "start moving" in the first quarter of 2022.
    Profit-plumped stock market walks past inflation shock with barely a bruise
    It took the hottest inflation print in 3 decades to finally halt the $S&P 500 index(.SPX.US)$'s five-week advance. But it was hardly a body blow for a stock market where resilience continues to be the headline story.
    Companies across industries have managed to navigate supply chain bottlenecks and climbing input costs by raising prices, which have been readily absorbed by consumers -- so far.
    Oil traded at almost $150 the last time $4 gasoline hit 3 states
    U.S. retail gasoline prices are poised to average more than $4 a gallon in three states for the first time in 13 years as energy prices surge and fan fears of inflation.
    The average price of gasoline is already above $4 a gallon in California and Hawaii and, at $3.97 a gallon, is poised to cross the mark in Nevada as well, according to AAA. The last time that happened in three states at the same time was in 2008, a time when oil surged to an all-time record of more than $147 a barrel.

    Elon Musk, the world's wealthiest person, began his Sunday sparring with U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, who tweeted a day earlier that "we must demand that the extremely wealthy pay their fair share." Musk even raised the notion of selling more of his $Tesla(TSLA.US)$ shares, which would require him to pay taxes on the gains.
    "I keep forgetting that you're still alive," Musk, the chief executive officer of Tesla and SpaceX, tweeted in a reply to the 80-year-old senator from Vermont. In a subsequent tweet, Musk asked: "Want me to sell more stock, Bernie? Just say the word…"

    Chip shortage has manufacturers turning to lower-tech models
    Manufacturers struggling with a shortage of semiconductor chips are finding workarounds, executives said, redesigning products, shipping uncompleted units and focusing on older, lower-tech models.
