Semiconductor name NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) will report earnings after the close tomorrow, Aug. 23. Analysts anticipate fiscal third-quarter earnings of $2.09 per share on revenue of $11.22 billion, bolstered by the company's dominance in chips used to power generative artificial intelligence (AI). NVDA earlier today hit an all-time high of $481.87, though was last seen 3.3% lower at $453.97.

Boasting a 215.2% year-to-date lead, Nvidia stock is outperforming the iShares Semiconductor ETF (SOXX) and the VanEck Semiconductor ETF (SMH) -- up 42.2% and 48.7% year-to-date, respectively. NVDA's trip up the charts was helped by its 40-day moving average, and a brief dip below this trendline was saved by the 70-day moving average near the $400 level earlier this month.

Lastly, the security's Schaeffer's Volatility Scorecard (SVS) sits at an elevated 82 out of 100, indicating the equity has exceeded option traders' volatility expectations in the past year.
