    Did Alphabet Just Invest in "the Next NVIDIA"?

    Though shares of NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA) have plunged nearly 40% from their all-time high set last September -- hurt in part by a lull in demand for its popular graphics chips during the holidays -- there's no denying the tech giant's dominant industry position, innovative spirit, and enviable prospects for growth. With a market capitalization of nearly $112 billion as of this writing, that's not to mention the fact NVIDIA stock is up nearly 900% over the past five years alone. If you look back even further, shareholders who bought NVIDIA about 10 years ago have seen the value of their investment skyrocket more than 1,800%.

    European shares dive after grim flash PMI surveys

    European stock markets fell back on Friday after downbeat manufacturing data from Germany reignited fears of a recession in the region's biggest economy, erasing early gains on relief at the extension of Britain's Brexit deadline. The pan-European STOXX 600 index slipped for a third day, down 0.6 percent led by losses of almost 1 percent in Milan and Paris while Frankfurt and London indexes lost just over 0.5 percent. The flash PMI survey of purchasing managers showed German manufacturing contracted further in March, registering its lowest reading since June 2013 and compounding fears that unresolved trade disputes are exacerbating a slowdown.

But it warned "certain of these options – if they materialise – would result in no equity value for the company's current shareholders."
