(Seeking Alpha) Stocks finished higher Friday in choppy trading but ended the week lower amid several somber economic reports and rising tensions between the U.S. and China. The major averages bounced off early lows Friday after Pres. Trump unveiled an effort aimed at accelerating the discovery of a COVID-19 vaccine, overcoming monthly data that showed record breaking declines in U.S. retail sales and factory production. Meanwhile, the U.S. moved to curtail chip supply from Chinese tech company Huawei, prompting a rout in shares of semiconductor companies. For the week, the Dow tumbled -2.6% while the S&P 500 fell -2.2% and the Nasdaq Composite closed -1.2% lower.

Spotlight on Nvidia
Nvidia (NVDA) cruises into its Q1 earnings day with shares just off their 52-week high and up 40% YTD. Analysts say the strong share price action leaves the potential for some near-term volatility around the earnings report and profit-taking, but are also strongly pointing to second-half gaming ramps, new 7nm Ampere products, ongoing cloud/AI tailwinds and upside presented by the Mellanox and Cumulus deals.
The company’s annual Build developers conference runs May 19-20 from in a virtual format. Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) will hold more than 600 sessions covering information across a variety of technologies. CEO Satya Nadella is due to give the keynote address. Also on tap next week, a Microsoft Security webcast hosted by Morgan Stanley will feature several execs in a Q&A format. Shares of Microsoft head into the big week up 16% YTD and 43% higher over the last 52 weeks.

Tech may be leading the way in turning remote work into the new norm after the coronavirus pandemic. Expanding on a recent trend seen at major tech companies like Facebook (FB), Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL) and others, which have announced work-from-home setups until 2021, Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) upped the ante to “forever.” The option wouldn’t apply to those required to make a physical appearance, like certain maintenance staff, but instead would apply to those who can perform their job functions remotely.
