Workplace conflict often looks like high school drama, according to consultant Rosalind Wiseman. Wiseman is no stranger to teen drama — in fact, she literally wrote the book on it. The corporate world and high school aren't the same, but the similarities are striking"The answer that I should say is that, 'Oh, adults are so much more mature than kids,'" she told Business Insider when asked about how workplace drama compares to high school. Wiseman said workplace drama tends to look different than what you see in high school — teens can be far more "crass" — but the levels of sophistication in which the conflicts and undermining play out can be similar. AdvertisementWhatever the conflict, adults can end up feeling similar to high schoolers — excluded, taken advantage of, or even bullied.

Where markets go next may well depend on how Nvidia does after going forward. "The answer here will depend on NVDA," Tom Essaye of The Sevens Report wrote in a Thursday note. "The stock is at an all-time high ... and if it can hold (or extend) this rally ... it'll imply that tech can help lead this market higher." Nvidia and other artificial intelligence darlings, including Meta Platforms, powered the broader market last year, while other stocks underperformed. I'd rather take it elsewhere in something that hasn't had as much of a run as Nvidia has."

Some Wall Street analysts are bracing for a pullback in Nvidia shares after the chipmaker reports fiscal fourth quarter results after the bell Wednesday. "We reiterate Buy/top pick ahead of NVDA Feb-21 earnings but won't be surprised to see a notable but brief pullback after the recent parabolic run-up in the stock," wrote Bank of America analyst Vivek Arya in a recent note. Nvidia shares slid more than 4% during Tuesday's session, but they have surged 40% in 2024. "Hence, we see limited room for further earnings upside in 2024 relative to the sales and earnings surprise that we saw in 2023." Even if Nvidia tops estimates, some on Wall Street anticipate a post-earnings decline akin to what's occurred during previous prints.

Data center capacity constraints could one day eat into Nvidia's revenue potential, according to UBS analysts. "A major factor that we believe will probably start coming into play is data center capacity — which we do think starts to hurt revenue, albeit maybe more in 2026 than in 2025," Arcuri said, in a separate report. For the fourth quarter, UBS expects Nvidia to report data center revenue of $19.45 billion, which would entail sequential growth of 34%. It also expects revenue and earnings per share, as well as data center revenue, to increase in 2025 and 2026. According to FactSet, average estimates for data center revenue are around $17.06 billion and $20.4 billion in total revenue for the fourth quarter.
